View Full Version : Martina to win the French Open?

May 2nd, 2002, 11:26 PM
I just received my latest edition of Tennis magazine. And for the first time in a long time, Chris Evert, on her page there in the front, predicts a Jennifer/Serena final. I won't go into all the details of her article, but maybe the "Chris" curse on Martina is lifted. Fans of Jennifer and Serena need to worry now!

And, for those of us who view Chris' "expert" analysis as no better than ours, Chris concludes, "I still don't have a clue in 2002." I think she's trying to say this year has been unpredictable but the sentence can be read in another way that is quite comical if you're not a fan of Chris' commentating (I loved her as a player, she, imo, stinks as a commentator/predictor).

Another bizarrely ominous thing here, I'm not sure Chris meant to say this, she writes, "If she [Martina] wins another Slam title, whatever and whenever it is, it'll be very sweet." Notice the use of the word "if" rather than "when." I'm not sure this was something Chris did intentionally or not. Given her statement I mentioned above, I think it's just an oversight on her part!

Speaking of curses, I just realized that Iva "cheated" the Curse of Sandrine Testud when she won Family Circle Cup. Iva always is breaking the rules, lol!

I just hope Chris continues her anti-Williams campaign.

YES! *feels the curse around Marti being lifted*

Now Martina can FINALLY do it! It's about time Evert gave the kiss of death to other players!

OMG Chris didn't predict Martina to win?! :D

aww, shucks, she predicted martina to win the french open since 1997, why stop now? ;)

Why the hell did she have to go and mention Serena's name. Chris stick to what you do best. Keep predicting martina to win.

Chris concludes, "I still don't have a clue in 2002."

First time I agree with Chris :)

Chris's curse doesn't work toward the Williams family.:D

Venus won US Open last year, and Chrissy said she would.:)

Everytime I hear about Chris, I think about her Wimbeldon remark, commentating about how a one hand backhand is a LIABILITY on grass. I just want to ask her what does she think when she watching tennis??
