Even so, and I agree, players themselves can feel it's 'special' .. Look at Serena Williams. She appears to take it very serious

Re: Articles and Interviews

I guess so. I think the whole Olympics stuff is lost on me because I don't get kicks out of the whole patriotism thing at all, it adds nothing for me but the players seem to enjoy it, some at least.

With that being said, it was fun to see Wimbledon like that, with colorful dresses, music on court etc. Still, I'm relieved we`ll be back to normal WTA business in a few days time.

Yeah, they value Olympics and definitely do not see it as an 'ordinary' event. Points don't matter as much at an event like this. It's a desfile of the best players in any given sport and some even said they value them more than slams.

It all looks to me to be a pretty standard Q&A and we all know what would have happened, if Caroline had said, she thought she could win the tournament ( about a 20 page thread in GM).

Re: Articles and Interviews

I don't really see it as mocking, her standard PR answers are just very predictable, I feel like I could do those Q&As for her sometimes

So Thomas isn't there, I wonder what that means for on-court coaching. Piotr? No coaching? Will be interesting to see.

Well, that's Stephanie Myles, she's like female version of Matt Cronin, I'd even say she is worse than Cronin! She likes to make snarky comments about Caro & Piotr!

Re: Articles and Interviews

Well it's the same questions over and over, I mean how many times she must have been asked about the Olympics and how it feels bla bla blaaaaaaaa, she can't really drag out much longer her answers, at least she's not monosyllable considering English is not her first language. And if they wanted Ivanovic.....good luck with her talking something that makes sense

I'm hoping for a good tournament here, she needs it.

I think it's essential. Her Olympics were encouraging, progress was made, now on her best surface it's crucial that she gets some good results.

Re: Articles and Interviews

I don't know, the person speaking sounds quite distant to her: "I like Caroline as a person, and wish her all the best.".. that's nothing you say about a good friend of yours, it's obvious that you like them as a person.

My guess would be Serena.

Re: Articles and Interviews

^ or simply pure fabrication ... It's not like the blogger will have to show any proof that the interview with the 'top tennis player' is real ...

Re: Articles and Interviews

I don't believe it is Serena, although it might be one of the sisters. To Me, it sounds almost as a retired or almost retired player or someone like Na for that matter.
