It is official: Venus is not Mars

Australia thought long and hard about there campaign for 2004 and they chose 3 men and 2 women to highlight there campaign. Kim and Serena win the top spots for the ladies amongst derision by other media outlets. They chose to ignore Justine because she lacks "Selling power"

That was the host, 7

Channel 9, chose to go with Navatilova and Clijsters in the womens field.

Channel 10 went with Kim and Martina N and Martina H (coming over for committments)

67% found 7's campaign boring...cartoon or not

92% said they would buy a ticket because of Navratilova.

99.999999999999% wants a Hingis/Navratilova doubles combination

56% expect a Hingis return.

36% believe Justine Henin-hardenne will win the Australian open.

12% believe Serena can repeat

72% want Kim to win

Less then 1% believe in Venus to reach the Semi-finals.



Overall Serena, Kim and Martina N were the big sell pionts, followed by Justine and the "Russian Invasion"..Venus not mentioned at all

Of Course I'm out of my Mind



It's freakin dark and scary in there

omigod does this mean Monica is a Nobdy as well......

Omigod does this mean Anna K. is a nobody as well....

Omigod does this mean lindsay and jen are nobodies as well....

omigod does this mean the "russian invasion" is just a blob mass of indistinct blonde hair and no individual personality to speak of or sell...

Where was it in that news that Venus is a nobody. Didnt you came to that conclusion based on your limited sense of judgement?

are you really that clueless? Its not about the news its about your ridiculously biased thread title.

Also by your own reasoning monica, jen, and lindsay really must be the supreme nobody because they didnt even get a 1%.

Hmmm.

In America - Australia is a nobody.....and on the whole Nobody really likes to play there.

Pete Sampras hated it. Agassi ignored them and in the future the Sistahs will be doing the same. That Slam gets in the way and should be done away with.

For goodness sake if you are going to intelligently debate be, back yourself up with facts...Deny this:

My Case:

Venus is not wanted by any supporter of the Australian Open

Your Case:

Is that Martina N hitting up on that court??????


Of Course I'm out of my Mind
