Esther says that the players are getting better, so she keeps training harder and raises her level.

The standard of opponent is much higher than a few years ago, but Esther was so far ahead to begin with (she was the first to really take it properly seriously) that they are always playing catch-up.

There is a lot more competition on the men's side. But Esther seems to be ruling the roost on the women's side that it looks like a joke. She basically bagels everyone she plays. It makes me wonder how she would fair on the WTA.

How old is she now (or it doesn't matter cause she's sitting down), with all due respect?

Wasn't like 4 years ago when she saved several mps on a match? She is a mental giant too.

RESPECT!

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

That's still young (especially when you're sitting down).

No wonder she's still kicking booty!

Good for her!
