Capriati's Comments About Serena's 6-0, 6-0 Rout of Barbara Schett

"I don't think anyone cares that she won 6-0, 6-0. The only thing people care about is who the champion is"

She is right about the second comment, but don't think the remaining players on Serena's side of the draw ignored the match, considering Justine, Amelie and Chanda have had nothing to say about the rout as far as I am aware.

I think she was trying to point out, they know how dangerous Serena is and not much of the girls pay attention to the scores unless a maybe it was a tough three setter. Cappy momo lindsay kim venus and serena have all ben winnin pretty easily so far

Cappy is trying to convince herself that she would even have a chance to beat SERENA.

She won't have a chance. Serena won't make it to the finals.

I dont think Jenny will get as far as beating Serena, but if they did meet it would be interesting. A match I would want to see!!!

Anyway I dont really get what Cappy is saying. Mind you she bagled someone in her opening match at US last year, and failed to do much else so...

Look, you have a go at Capriati when she says stuff about Williams sisters and comments about their matches etc. But then you have even more of a go when she doesn't. Plus, who does really care that she won 6-0 6-0??

didnt babsi lose 5 or 6 matches in a row?

So really what score did people expect? Serena was going to bulldoze Schett from the beginning so this score is nothing special I think. to beat someone badly who lost 6 or 7 matches in a row is expected.

Hopefully amelie can give Venus an assist in her win in the final if they both get there.

Now if Serena beats Amelie 6-0, 6-0 then that will be something to seriously look at.

Are you sure about that? Of course anything can happen, but Serena and Kim have been playing the best on the women's side of the draw so far and they look like they will meet in the finals.

YS - Why, are they going to give SERENA the trophy because she will eventually win anyway.?

"Plus, who does really care that she won 6-0 6-0??"

Duh, like any of her possible future opponents, perhaps?

While it is true that Schett hasnt been in that hot of form, she did however get far enough to take out last years semifinalist Fernandez and get to the third round. So dont fucking piss on Serenas win because had Clisjsters or Henin-Hardenne had've done the same thing, this whole board wouldve been howling. Serena knows that it takes 7 whole matches to win a grand slam but what is wrong with celebrating Double bagelling a potentially very tough opponent who took your sister out in the first round just two years ago? Besides Anton, you should be glad because it seems like Serenas performance has inspired Venus to wake the fuck up and start playing like a top five player in the world. As for Capriati, she needs to worry about getting out of the quartefinals before trying to piss on anyones wins.
