One more...

Did you know that... Angelique Widjaja won a her first WTA tour tournament on her first attempt as a WC in 2001 , becoming the youngest player to win a tournament all season, at age 16 years, eight months, 18 days; saved 2 mp to d. No. 2 seed Tanasugarn in QF and received a standing ovation after her two-hour, 57-minute SF win over Su-Wei Hsieh; came back from down 2-5, 0-40 to save four set points in second set against Kruger in final; became sixth player to win her debut Tour event and first since 1999 (Henin at Antwerp); was lowest-ranked player ever to win a Tour title at No. 579

Elena Dementieva has a lucky raquet also collect cactuses

Vera Zvonareva lists her most memmorable momment as losing 6-0 6-0 to Nadya Petrova...ironically in a pre-match press-conferance for their 2003 Roland Garros quater final, Petova said she didnt remember ever playing Vera....

Jelena Dokic, has many superstions, bounces the ball at least 5 times before serving, doesnt walk on the lines...eats half a watermelon, half a kilo of strawberrys, and pears everyday, and spends the rest of her time on the toilet presumably.

Nadia Petrova is a keen angler.

Daniela Hantuchova plays the piano

Venus Williams has her own designing company and moving company. She will also have her B.A. by the end of the year.

Also Jelena, upon winning a match likes to wear the same clothes and use the same raquet that she got the win with...seems to be avoiding personal hygeine issues by losing in the first round a lot.

No Serena was almost 18. It was 1999, the year that she won her first slam! It was also Mary Joe's last year on the tour.

Did you know that Serena lost only ONE match on american hardcourts in ´99 and that was to her sister Venus in the final of the Lipton, first all-sister final since 18..,?!

That Sandrine Testud was the only player to beat Serena twice that year?!

That in order to win her first Nasdaq title in 2002 Serena beat no.3, no.2, no.1 in three days and didn´t drop a SET??!!! Only second to player to this since Steffi beat no.3, no.2 and no.1 to win ´99 RG?!

That in order to win her first 4 majors Serena beat the defending champion in ALL of them en route to the title?! Lindsay at the ´99 u.s.open, Jennifer at ´02 french open and Venus at Wimbledon and u.s.open ´02. THAT is some record.

Oh, and about dokic, she always sits on the left side of the umpire, bounces the ball 5 times on first serve and 2 times on second serve.

The truth, the truth...and this holds true for most slam victories too. Not Steffi Graf but Margaret Court holds this record too.

DID YOU KNOW…



If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it.)




If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that's more like it!)


The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
(O.M.G.!)


A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)


A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy.)
(I'm still not over the pig.)


Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour
(Don't try this at home,maybe at work)


The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
("Honey, I'm home. What the....?!")


The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field.
(30 minutes..lucky pig! Can you imagine?)


The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)


Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
(I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)




Butterflies taste with their feet.
(Something I always wanted to know.)


The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
(Hmmmmmm......)


Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.
(If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)


Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
(okay, so that would be a good thing)


A cat's urine glows under a black light.
(I wonder who was paid to figure that out?)


An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
(I know some people like that.)


Starfish have no brains.
(I know some people like that too.)


Polar bears are left-handed.
(If they switch, they'll live a lot longer)


Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
(What about that pig??)

My cousin has been farting consistently for about 47 years. :eek: He could qualify as a global nuclear power.

Getting back to tennis, DYK....

...that former player Marketa Kochta's sports idol was Martina Navratilova, and that one of Martina's sports idols when growing up was hockey player Jiri Kochta; Marketa's father.

...Gabriela Sabatini once double-faulted 7 times in one game... and held serve.

...in the 1st round of Wimbledon in 1957, M.H. De Amorin started the match with 17 straight double faults.

...there were 10 different RG winners from 1954-63, and the women have had 8 different winners in the past 8 years.

...there were 10 different RG winners from 1954-63, and the women have had 8 different winners in the past 8 years.

Roland Garros hasn't been kind to its #1 seeds since 1996. No top seeded woman has won there since Graf in 1996. (AO: Henin-Hardenne in 2004, W: Serena in 2003, USO: Serena in 2002)

This year saw two of the four Slams have the lowest seeded winners ever -- Sharapova at Wimbledon and Kuznetsova at the US Open.

Actually, that's only true for one species. In other species, it might happen only in 5% of cases. The cannibalism of female mantises has been vastly exaggerated. Same is true for female black widows.
