How are the other players so much worse than her? This is one of the oddest things in sports.

^ I agree, it never ceases to amaze me

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.

Esther on CNN. Nice interview
What really makes her stand out from the other players is that she's so motivated and trains really hard. She's only training with male wheelchair tennis players

That says more about the quality of her opponents. Totally pathetic.

THAT's how you dominate a sport.

But seriously, it's very odd how no one can challenge her.
It's difficult to understand how there's such a huge gap between her and the rest players.
