Anna Kournikova's Explanation for Not Having Won a Title

<Her elusive first WTA victory:

"It's definitely something that I want to do. I've been in the finals a few times, I've been in the semifinals a million times. I've been very close and sometimes just been unlucky or I've played great players or I was tired or I was got injured or something. I'm sure it will come together." >

LOL

4 excuses! I should have hired Anna when I was in high school to make up excuses for me not doing my homework!

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

They showed a pretty interesting half-hour show on ESPN about Anna and her rise to fame. One of the key points made on the show is that tennis athletes are more entertainers than they would like to admit. From that perspective, I guess Anna could reasonably ask who cares that she doesn't have a title.

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

She has only been in four finals, so with five excuses, she is already prepared for next time!

SM, it was just not meant to be.

Good thread Janie! Maybe Anna should say she just can't win a tournament and give up!

On a side note, I'm surprised that Anna weighs 130 pounds. I would have thought she weighed about 120 pounds. I would advise her to lose a few pounds a get quicker. She doesn't appear to have the quickness she once had.

My main wish for Anna is to have an injury free 2003!

Udachi Anna!

Some damn funny and silly excuses! Now do you see how foolish some posters here look when explaining how Jennifer won her grandslams?

Oh give it break, you guys. Sheeeesh! Her failure to get a title so far is just one of those freakish combinations of circumstances that sometimes happens. Her continuing failure in very recent times - when she's come close in lower level events, such as Shanghai this year - is probably as much a result of the unrelenting pressure being put on her about this as anything else. She has a monkey on her back now.

I'd like to see how any of you would deal with such media pressure as confronts Anna every day. You'd probably disintegrate mentally.

Just enjoy the tennis of one of the most exciting, if erratic, players on the tour, and stop carping about her.

Go Anna in 2003!

what's everyon'es problem?

she has played very good players in the finals. hasn't she? these very good players can wear a player down mentally and physically. that's what great players do, right? she has been injured a lot! right? she has been very unlucky, then. so what is everyone's problem?

There is no problem, endiadjendiadj. This is a quote from Anna herself answering the question so many have posed for the past 4 years.

Everyone is free to view the quote as they wish.
