just wondering...

I mean, of course not the words themselves, but I just recently notice Roger and Roddick doing it in the same way Serena does it.

In a kinda like confident way right after winning a game, you know.

Just correct me if I'm being delusional.

Didn't Jimmy Conners used to say it? So if that's true than neither Serena nor Lleyton invented it.

Serena does it best. The Hewitt, Federer's come ons seem so contrived.

Vamos.

Hewitt was the first of this generation to use it and he was the one who made it one of the best known catch phrases in sport...

Lleyton Hewitt is the 'inventor'.

His only notable contribution to the sport.

So Disrespectful

Yeah, Hewitt's been using it for longer than Serena, but I'm sure it's not the first time those words have appeared alongside each other.

:tape: Im sure tennis players have been using it for years. You know, people like Hewitt, Seles, Hingis, Agassi, etc,etc. And Roger and Andy do NOT yell come on like Serena. She bends over and clenches her face like she's giving birth, while Roger is mnuch more conservative with it and Andy does a little skip, haha.

According to Wikipedia, she invented "Come on!" and toilet paper in 1997.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serena_Williams

It's in bold under the 1991-1997 portion of her Wiki page.
If it's on Wiki, it must be true.

YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

:lol: i heard that Serena travelled back in time and invented the wheel too. but it's not on Wiki, so it can't be true :(

Yep, Connors used to work himself (and the crowds) into a frenzy with his come on's and fist pumping.
