Women's Tennis is VERY much like Women's Figure Skating and almost exactly like Women's Gymnastics. Every 2-3 years a brand new crop of cute little pre-teen blonde girls in poneytails or pigtails is introduced to the world as the next group of phenoms here to save the game, and the tennis public, like so many sheep, eat it up and just keep on grazing for the next big disappointment from a girl who could be a model, but most likely will never amount to anything resembling a tennis champion.
Then along come the Williams Sisters, out of this machine loop, and piss everyone off by learning to play tennis and smashing the Chrissie clone mold, and voila! Tennis isn't dead after all. I'm so glad Steffi didn't pass the torch to anyone but Serena!!!!
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
