Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week

"I definitely think that Serena and Venus are being missed from the WTA Tour, and by the other players and the media too. They've had a huge influence on how the game has changed. They made it more athletic and powerful and forced all of us to get better. As an athlete you always want the greatest challenge, to play against the best. I hope we see them back soon."

- Kim Clijsters

This is very honest of Kim. Whether or not u like the Serena and Venus is not an issue, fact is they are the two best players. Everyone wants a chance to play them , a chance to beat them, hell...some people even want the chance to say that they had the apportunity in their career to play one of the sisters. I know when I play tennis at the local parks, i look to play the best players, the competition is better, he/she makes me raise my game a few levels. Kim knows that beating the same players each week easily is no fun and will not improve her game. She often makes very honest comments and gives credit where it is due. I also think that Serena and Venus would make the same comments about Kim if she were injured and off tour.

Word! Venus even said at the Oz, that it would be sad to see Kim retire prematurely...as her father was saying that Kim was gonna retire.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

How in the hell is this taking a Dig at Justine? Newsflash folks, if it werent for the sisters, Justine, nor Kim wouldnt have gotten better an in much better postion to challenge. BTW, morons, if you think Serena hasnt said nice things about players , that just shows your inablity to get off your ass and read interviews and articles, she has spoken glowing about every top ten player that she has played.

I can see why you're a Jenn fan...!!! And, since you're so misinformed, Serena has often spoken very highly of the whatever player was No.1...ergo, her quotes about how sad it would be for Martina Hingis to retire and not return to the tour!!!


No one really cares about the "hating", just get and keep your "facts" straight...!!!

How the hell did you miss the sarcasm of Kart's and Willow's posts? Newsflash Serendy Willick, it it weren't for people with a sense of humour, this board would be even more swamped with petty bickering and bitching.
