Andre disses Serena: Money Talks Article
Money talks for Serena Williams

PARIS (AP) - Serena Williams has won more than $11 million playing tennis. Money, however, has not lost its charm for her.
Williams is three victories from earning $966,000 as the French Open champion. In January she won $654,000 as the Australian Open champion, and jokingly complained that wasn't enough.
``I've always been motivated at the U.S. Open because they always pay a lot,'' Williams said Sunday. ``I mean, this year I think it will probably be $950,000. Who wouldn't want to win that?
``But it's tough for tournaments like Australia,'' she said with a smile. ``I definitely play to win the Grand Slam when I go there.''
When told about her comment, Australian Open champion Andre Agassi said: ``My prayer is that I never get to a point in life where I think hundreds of thousands of dollars isn't a lot of money.''
My question is this why does Andre always have a nasty comment when another player is discussing money? This is not the first time remember when Yvegeny said that he felt that tennis did not pay enough, and Andre went out of his way to diss him, like he was the one who signed the checks. LOL
Anyways, HATERS don't come in with your usual bullshit. Don't want to hear it. IMO, Serena was joking. But of course she loves money. Who doesn't?
