Damn! Who the hell can I root for now?

If my faves had been further on in their careers and preparing to transition into their non tennis lives, then I would have begun to ween myself, somewhat, of the presence of VENUS & SERENA and even begun to look for another active fave to root for, but I still would always be a Williams Tennis Association member for life though.

I have been to spoiled with my two fabulous faves and now, with this latest U.S. Open catastrophe, I am forced to be without them and just try and enjoy, to some extent, the play of the other competitors.

Perhaps, I will watch more of the mens competition, which will essentially be the Andy Roddick show, because I initially was a huge fan of mens tennis befor the age of the Fabulous Sisters.

I kind of wish that Anna K. had her game really together so that she could make a big run at the title and even play one of the Belgies in the final, but, alas, the Rocket threw her back out of wack with her favorite extrcurricular activity with her many athlete/entertainer partners.

But, one good thing, now I can spend more time working on my own fabulous tennis game or even begin to learn Windows 2003 with the TV time that I would use watching V&S play or the certain to be low rated womens finals.

you can watch your loved cappy and kim

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

You can always root for Navratilova! She will be around forever and there's even a chance she'll come back to singles

Not any worthwhile suggestions so far.
I guess I'll just watch some of my old Grand slam tapes with a WILLIAMS in the final (not 2003 RG).

If you want to choose an young American player ?..........their is no much follow up!.........your country better adopt a few Russians before your country face the same problem as England on Wimbledon.

The Williams Sisters want play long.......because they can't accept a lose.

I can not really back a Rooskie because we were at (cold) war with them for so long that a lot of us still see them as the enemy. Sad isn't it?

However, they do make nice vodka.

I have an idea...why don't you go build a SHRINE for all the fanatics to visit after the sisters have retired?? YOU are also the perfect administrator for it. (heck, you were born to live each day worshipping the sisters) And later, after you are gone, the children of the these fanatics will make you a SAINT!!!
