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!

I think 31

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

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

No wonder she's still kicking booty!

Good for her!
