Talking



MARY PIERCE<br />The blonde haired French woman who captures the heart of crowds world wide is renowned as one of the hardest hitters off both sides on the tour.

With a lethal double handed backhand and a powerful forehand that produces the most acute angled shots ever seen, Mary Pierce has continued to surge up the FWTA rankings.

Despite Pierce's often high un-forced errors count, she cunningly uses her incredible power off both sides to dominate the match and usually wins or loses over three sets.

Pierce's aim for 2002 is to get into the top ten - and with her power play style that has already seen her take out the Croation Indoor Championships, beating world number three Amanda Coetzer in the semi's and Serena Williams in the final , she's well on the way.

Lindsay DAVENPORT



Residence: Laguna Beach, California, USA<br />Birthdate: June 8, 1976<br />Age: 25<br />Birthplace: Palos Verdes, California, USA<br />Height: 6'2 1/2" (1.89 m)<br />Weight: 175 lbs. (79 kg)<br />Plays: Right-handed (two-handed backhand)<br />Best Shot: Down-the-Line Roundhouse Backhand<br />Best Surfaces: Indoor (hard and supreme) and Outdoor hard <br />Favorite Tournament: US open

*Joined the FWTA tour in 2001

FWTA singles tour titles: 1 (Rome 2001)<br />FWTA doubles tour titles: 1 (nation's cup 2001, with venus williams)<br />FWTAexhibition titles: 1 (carling bassett-seguso exhibition 2001)

* US FWTA FED cup team member in 2001

the tower of power from california is often described as too nice and too indifferent of her tennis play. however, her results have spoken quite the opposite. with a clever and big serve, resounding groundstrokes from both sides. efficient volleying skills and an almost unbeatable return game, she has shown her mark in the FWTA tour.

despite her biggest weakness, her speed and fitness, she makes up for it well with a good reach and heightened anticipation due to mental toughness and experience.

in 2002, she hopes to gain more wins under her belt in the FWTA tour and to climb the rankings from her current position of ten and with her reknewed and focused mindset, she could certainly achieve them.

<br />HER AUTOGRAPH



[ January 02, 2002: Message edited by: jacs ]</p>

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.
