Let the outcries begin! Can you believe she said that?

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

No one cares what Myskina says, she is not a Williams sister. If Justine said this it would just be confidence.

Oh, come on. She hasn't been saying it for years. If she said it, then it's the first time that I can recall. There is a big difference in saying you gave one away and saying you gave all of them away. So…do you really not know the difference or is this opportunism?

Funny how most 'top' players who lose to Anna P. say similar things

There is no difference. If you lost a match in which you think you played poorly thus "giving the match awy" it doesn't matter if you say it once or three times. Her opponent said it could have gone either way, and that she won the key points. The point is when you lose it's because the other player played better on that day period end of story.

Martina said the game had passed Steffi by and that Steffi was too old and slow, to my knowledge she only stated this once...that was enough for remarks to comeback and bite her in the ass! Twice!

Oh and thank you Bella. I was wondering how long it would take before we got the "double standard" post.

Red face

Isn't this the same person who said that neither Serena nor Venus could beat Kim at the AO? If I were her, I'd worry more about my game because something is wrong when you can't beat a person who is playing in her first hardcourt match this summer (Anna played on clay most of the summer) and is ranked lower than you.

Just like Myskina declared Clijsters was the best in the world after Clijsters beat her at the AO 2003, and that Kim would win the tournament. Myskina gives herself too much credit.

It must be a Russian thing Isn't this exactly what Anna K said about Venus when she lost to her at the Lipton final in 98 ?

VENUS WILLIAMS

Queen of WTAWORLD, Queen of Tennis.

Something to that affect. I'm glad she said that publically it gave Venus that much more motivation to never lose to her...EVER!

Yes, but Anna Kournikova actually did give that match away- she had Venus on the ropes the whole time, outsmarting her in rallies and at the net, and then she just kind of got too close to the finish line and crumbled. I hated that match- very frustrating to watch.
