I posted something similar in US Open...

I respect her a lot....but....it sounded like someone was choking a cat...

It has a lot to do with acoustics of the big stadium...Remember Patti LaBelle last year? Why has Monica's name come into this thread. Making fun of people's physical apperances is not nice.

Sigh, she has gained weight, but she is a legend.

I guess not singing live for years has affected her voice maybe?

Honestly all that entertainment crap that comes with US Open is tiring. I mean please, this is tennis, not NFL or NBA or whatever.

Plus Venus and Serena did NOT look pleased at having to wait during all that glitz and glitter ceremony to warm up.

Seles: about your sig. Venus could hardly move when Seles "beat" her. She had a pulled hamstring and left the court after the tiebreaker for treatment. That is not something to brag about. How would you like it if someone was rejoicing in one of Monica's toughest losses?

Don't insult the queen of Soul. She is and will remain a legend.

Sep 8th, 2002, 11:54 AM
who is she????

Sep 8th, 2002, 01:56 PM
whatever anton.seles was just better than VENUS get ova it! it was vintage seles that day irrespective of how VENUS' condition was...she was outgunned!...in fact i think she wa slucky to take her to 3 that day

but that kinda of play has been quite a rarity from seles against players like the williams..so why shouldnt they rejoice? GO SELES!

and btw - only venus knows the severity of the injury..she mightve looked slow but a seles on fire does that to her opponents

Lots of people gain weight when they quit smoking. Aretha will always be beautiful to me. She is a legend because of her talent, not her looks.

Sep 8th, 2002, 06:15 PM
It osunded liek the had a cat down her throat, man that was bad.

Sep 8th, 2002, 06:53 PM
Although this has nothing to do with the topic, anton... If you're fit enough to start the match - you're fit enough to accept the result. Face it - Venus lost. Get over yourself and your excuse making. It's a game - sometimes you win sometimes you lose. There is no reason for you to be insulted by my signature because:
1. it's the truth
2. it's most likely temporary
3. it's what i want to say
4. it's not demeaning to anybody; in fact i find it highly complimentary to V&S that nobody else has beaten them in a Slam in a long long long time.

Please get over yourself and knock that chip off your shoulder. The world is not out to get you, I promise.

Now, back to the topic:

As far as the entertainment; If I was a ticketholder, I'd be glad that had a little pomp, circumstance, and some singing....that final was only what just an hour and a little bit? If I had paid big $, I sure as hell would want my $s worth.

As far as Aretha. Don't hate. Maybe nobody read my post.... The acoustics in Ashe Stadium are dreadful - not fit for singing, concerts, etc. Anyone remembe Patii LaBelle last year?

Sep 8th, 2002, 08:35 PM
I was thinking the same thing.I couldn't hera the words the backing singers were so crap!And why was she singing to the chune of God save our queen?
