That I am bumping this thread for the first time in what - 8 months - is an evidence of our decline.
You were right to bump this thread. You forsaw what was coming from Maria Sharapova. You ys are the Nostradomus of WTA World. But you are also correct about the decline of the Russina's. I think they put so much into their careers, training and practices that after so many years they get burned out and beaten up physically and psychologically. I mean Sharapova asnd Svetlana Kuxnetsova should be really good for a couple more years but Svetlana has slipped alot recently and is ranked in the 20's. Scary. And Vera Zvonareva has fallen off the tennis cliff.
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
