Also on page 326, after the excerpt you quoted, it says:
Asked if she was getting too much attention after the Orange Bowl, Anna responded, "I've deserved every bit of it. I earned the attention with my results. And I've worked hard. I certainly haven't gotten the attention that some players we know have. I watched Serena and Venus Williams play and they're not that good. They've been given more attention than me, and they haven't even played in tournaments. They don't know how to play points or how to win. I've put myself on the line. It's not easy to be the No. 1 seed every week with everyone trying to beat you. I've absolutely earned it all."
Then she punctuated her remarks. "To play pro tennis and be No. 1 has always been my dream and one I will not let go no matter what," she said.
Charlie Pasarell, my old friend from Puerto Rico, saw Anna and said, "With her looks, her personality, her talent, she could be bigger than Agassi, bigger than Seles." That's big. I'd love to see that. I'd love to be a part of it.
"Sometime's Nick's like a doctor to me. When I'm like sick on the court, when I don't have a good shot, he stays for one minute, watches, then tells me what to do, and I feel like perfect, like I went to the doctor. Unbelievable!" ---Anna Kournikova
