Did everyone see this quote by Myskina??

With every tournament title, a win at the Grand Slams is becoming more and more realistic.
Anastasia Myskina



Strong words.

let me guess... thats an arrogant statement because the williamses will kill myskina on court no matter how many other tournaments myskina wins over the likes of henin and mauresmo because the williamses are the best ever so there.

typical.

foo!

I dont mean to be disrespectful - in fact, I quite like Myskina, but if she ever wins a Grand Slam I'll eat my hat.

No, I liked the quote. She feels she is progressing along and that she is about ready to take a slam.

I'd like her to prove me wrong; I just dont think she has it in her.

she's shown some very good results lately. the least that can afford her is some confidence against the top players in more crucial situations. its something she deserves i guess (some confidence anyway).

foo!

If she can beat a grandslammer like Justine, then for sure she has a chance also.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

The quote is fine, as it was only saying "possible". (While I still don't like her, I can't fault any player for confidence, as long as one's not arrogant about it). Having said that, Momo has the skills to have beaten her in Moscow but doesn't know when to play what style. Juju was worn out in Leipzig, like Kim was when she lost to Baby Blue Eyes in Toronto. (Plus Kim might well have won the Leipzig SF if not for the injury). And I don't see every such statement about oneself or another player as part of some "vast anti-Williams conspiracy". The W/S tend to TCB on the court regardless (even an injured Venus beating Kim @ Wimby).

Yes, coming back to beat Juju was impressive. Beating Momo is good, but Momo is a headcase and can lose to anyone.

P.S. No apology for assuming I was trying to bag on Myskina?? At least you owe me that??

for those laughing...

whats the point in playing if you dont believe in yourself?


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

I feel the same way, but admire her self belief regardless. As D-love said... if you don't believe you can do it, what are you playing for....

Heh, I'll hold you to it Jon Though if she does win a Slam I may well be too ecstatic to remember
