Question Anyone In The US Watching Anna's E! True Hollywood Story?

The Williams sisters have alreadly been mentioned twice (Martina Hingis once). As a teenager, she was resentful of the attention the Williams sisters were getting.

Wow, I'm really surprised that Bud Collins and others are using "past tense" when talking about her. It's as if she is dead, retired or whatever.

They are using past tense becasue she isn't the player she one was.

The E! show was okay. I think around as good as the ESPN Sports century.
I'm looking forward to the VH-1 show. And then the Beyond the Glory, or whatever other shows about Anna.
They grouped Anna with Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan several times.
But the only tennis player Anna mentioned was Hingis.
The Williams sisters maybe got 10 seconds out of one hour. So I'm not sure what the thread starter is talking about.
My favorite part were the recent clips when Anna was with David Wheaton. Anna looked great.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

The thread starter was me and my screen name is lizchris. Try using it next time.

Apparently yoy didn't watch the who show. The Williams sisters were mentioned when it was said that she resented the attention they got when they were teens and Venus was mentioned briefly when speaking of the 1998 Liption Championships.

I have to admit that E's off-court footage of Anna was fantastic. I had only seen pics from the WTT press conference for instance. Nice to see actual video. Good stuff!

Kudos to my old pal Steam for referencing the embarrassing number of historical inaccuracies. When the narrator said Martina Hingis was among the players Anna beat at the 1998 Lipton tournament, I nearly jumped out of my seat. Idiots. But I guess this was never intended to be a tennis piece. On a scale of 1-10, I give it a six. The never before seen (by me at least) footage definitely merits it.

Your thoughts?

lizchris, Anna never mentioned any tennis player but Hingis. And at least 10 tennis players were mentioned.
If you think that show was about your favs, you should watch it again with a stopwatch.

They didn't mention that she played challengers in 2003 but mentioned that she was injured and it was doubtful she could play a full schedule. It wasn't really anything new to people who follow tennis
