Im bored, just come back from me hols. So I thought I'd give you all some quotes to read, From Ladies of the Court, my official holiday read...
Capriati came to her interview in a pair of cutoff Levi's and a peach coloured shirt. With much giggling she recounted how she and her father had gone jogging in the park the day before and a thief had stolen their bags. They had lost their passports, some money, and a computer gadget she couldn't quite describe.
A reporter, perhaps planted by Walt Disney Inc. asked if next year she'd like to visit the new Euro Disney outside of Paris.
"Sure" she said, "if it's not too far" Between questions she bobbed her head as if plugged into a Walkman, listening to music and keeping the beat.
I mentioned that Andrea Temesvai, at aged 18, had been ranked 7th in the world. Today Jennifer had beater her two and one. "Did that give you any pause for relfection. the fact that a few years ago she was in your position?"
Capriati murmured that she'd heard of Temescari used to be good. "Maybe she got injured or something. I don't know. I've never thought about it."
As the room cleared, John Feinstein said "You can come back in seven years and Capriati still won't have thought about it" HE attended Jennnifers press conferences just to count the "you knows" and "I means." "Last year her act was fresh" he said "but it hasn't changed and probably never will. Most kids develop. They read books, they meet new people, the have new experiences. But kids in tennis keep doing the same things. Nothing new happens to them, so they have nothing to say."
1) 7 years = Jen being 22? Hmmm. Maybe by that point she would have thought about Temesvai.
2) John Feinstein doesn't like Jen.
and where they produce desolation, they call it peace
