Re: Chris Evert Thread
I think Chrissie doesn't like to blow her own trumpet! She always plays down her athletic abillity, in fact she often says she doen't have any! As for Oudin, what pressure would it be to be called the new Chrissie, especially by Chrissie herself!
Serena let herself and her spot,down badly, and I agree a rule is a rule. But even on Sky, the pundits were saying, that there is an unspoken rule in tennis, that you don't call a foot fault, in the last 3 games of the match! That is on the men's tour, so I assume the Women's tour would be the same. I think Serena "lost it", because she was being beaten, by a girl, she was expected to beat, and who hadn't played for nearly 3 years, and she just couldn't cope with that.
Kim winning, was a shot in the arm, for Women's tennis, and lets be honest, it needed it. Serena will now have to up her game. I agree with Chrissie, that when Serena is playing her "A Game", she is hard to live with, but often to tour matches, she doesn't bother to bring her "A Game", I think from now, that will have to change.
