View Full Version : Serena's Childhood Ambition To Be #0

Jul 5th, 2002, 07:31 AM
She said after match today that she wasn't very bright (her words, not mine!), and she wanted to be "number zero". I thought this was pretty funny, myself.

She's one step away from realizing her dream now!
Watch out WTA - SisterSerena will be ranked 0 very soon ;)

This beats the other "quote of the day" by a LONG shot.

Thanks for the bit.

Yea I saw that too. Bud Collins interviewed her and she started crying and was very emotional. After the zero comment, Serena said Richard said no, zero is not the best, 1 is the best and that was her dream since then to be #1.

Serena also said she would prefer to win Wimbledon to being number one.

I think it went somthing like this after the 0 comment:
-My dad asked me. Serena what do you want to be when you grow up?
-I want to be the best.

:D I too, was amused by Serenas' little story to Bud Collins, when he interviewed her after the Mauresmo match. I remember thinking, "only in a childs' mind would zero be better". It was truely funny.:hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

The way Serena's been playing lately, maybe we do need to classify her as something other than #1.

Ahhhh child's mind! So pure, so clear! After all, Zero does come before One. Even the Ancient Romans couldn't figure this out: they called year-0, year-1; and we've been stuck with that mistake ever since.

Tennis Power, persond--ditto!

I thought the same thing when I heard Serena say that. Only a child would see zero coming before one and equating it with being first and the best!

Good one, Serena.:)
