Well I'm sure that already have been a lot of threads similar or the same as this one but I want to know if do you think if Venus and Serena can ever be back at their best.

I will be honest I don't like any of them I think they are too arrogants but lets face it if tennis is what is now is because of them they raise the level of tennis with their amazing power they were dominating 'cos nobody could reach them but now............................... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: they are worring more for the fame than for the game.

I don't think they'll ever dominate like they did before. Just too many big hitters today, plus they're not getting any younger so injuries will continue to be a factor. I think they can each win a couple more slams, esp. Serena.

I think they've definitely peaked, about 3 years ago. The problem is they've already played so much hardcourt tennis, and their bodies are just injuries waiting to happen, and they do happen frequently. Couple that with the fact that, with most athletes, hunger is the greatest incentive. Neither sister will ever be hungry again, and no matter how they may try, the incentive and hunger will probably never reach those levels again. When you've won just about everything there is to win, what's left?

Nothing, hon, nothing. That's why my career went into the crapper circa 1960.

Seriously, can you imagine what The Graduate would've been like with you in lead instead of Anne Bancroft? I sure as hell can see it.

You'll have to ask Flavia Pennetta about this.

Those were the days, hon! :D

I was chewing a lot of scenery by 1967, though that was a part made for such. I never found Anne Bancroft particularly attractive, but you could see any horny college student wanting to jump my bones. I thought Bancroft brought a certain sadness and pity to the part that I don't think I would have. That is a good thought! I got stuck with the Honey Pot and VOTD, but Bancroft gets the Graduate. :o

The role really needed someone who could say the line "be a good boy and wipe my glass" a la Crawford to John Garfield in Humoresque (1946). Anne had Mel Brooks to go home to, and if there's anyone who can take a hard edge off a tough broad, it's Mel Brooks. Can you imagine what some of these players like the Williams sisters and Justine Henin-Hardenne would play like if they learned to deal with the press and doing whatever it takes to win a good role? Somebody needs to tap into Billie Jean King (if they can afford her).
