Poem for MOMO

I was just so disappointed with her result vs Serena and what she said after the match. Serena may still win that match but she could put some fight than giving up before the match even starts.

These poem is also for players who lack self-confidence at all.


If You Believe You Can, You Can

If you think you are beaten--you are.

If you think you dare not--you don't.

If you want to win but think you can't,

It is almost a cinch you won't.

If you think you'll lose--you've lost.

For out in the world we find

That success begins with a fellow's will;

It's all in the state of mind.

Life's battles don't always go

To the stronger or faster man;

But sooner or later the man who wins

Is the one who thinks he can.

I Think Serena believes she could win all of them thats why she's dominating. That makes the difference.

Nice poem!! Its kinda hard not to feel bad for her.....they need more Top French players so she wouldn't have to shoulder the burden alone. Look at Tim Henman :-)

A little more succinctly:

"Whether you think you can or you can't, you are right."…Henry Ford

Let's hope Amelie knows this:

"It's never too late to be what you might have been."…George Eliot

I just feel that every player should feel to at least fight to your best win or lose before you step on the court specially if your a top player in your field. I dont feel bad if my fave lose but did her best as she could and just being outplayed.
