IIRC,there's a biblical verse(maybe a couple)about how the people mourn when an idiot inherits the throne.Anyway,the fictional King Ralph is the only one in our era who even comes close to matching the extremely-brief,disgraceful reign that the Serb had as the supposed 'Queen of Tennis'

Has estado un chupapija por los banqueros y imperialistas tras ocho años; ahora puedes bajar en tus rodilleras en tu tiempo libre, cobarde marica:

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
