It's a shame she dropped away and made no announcement. She signed my autograph at Wimbledon 2003 in what must have been one of her last 20 or so tour matches. She made me feel like a human being, not "just another fan". She looked me in the eye and said "thanks", which was really nice.

The lady deserves huge respect for everything she achieved against the odds, throughout her career. She had no great talent, and was never a prodigy. Nobody could have predicted her success, but she built her reputation.

In Britain, our useless school of imbeciles could really take her as an example of how to get somewhere. I sometimes think in Britain we need not a player of exceptional talent who flatters to deceive (and we've had many), but a player with very little, who excels herself, showing what CAN be achieved with heart, diligence and persevearance.

Coetzer was those words personified.

She's been heavily dating a big-time American movie producer, one of the producers of Pretty Woman. He's quite a bit older, like maybe 60 (still younger than me!) and they started as friends, but now it's more. She's remodeling a house she bought in Hollywood.

Hooking up with a big-time movie producer is second only to winning a Best Actress Oscar.

umgh he is 57, not that, that is a whole lot better, well from just playing the game she has over 5 million and from commercials and what not while she has played I would say she has over 10 million so, I dont think she needs the money to much, If she is happy she is happy thats what matters.
