This may be a growing problem on the tour that could be as detrimental as abusing drugs.
A few of the known drinkers are Capriti, a heavy drinker, Kournikova, Hingis, Davenport and Mauresmo, who maintains the French tradition of drinking wines.

Added to this group are Raymond, mentioned she drank in college, Seles has been know to drink beer and Dokic has plenty of acces to booze, though I hope that maybe because of dad she will not over indulge in the drinking habit.

Phillipousis was plastered at the player's party after he was outted at the AussieOpen ;)...Patricia Wartusch smoked cigarettes and drank, alot of the lower key players do but i guess it doesn't make too much difference with them

Iva Majoli likes to party so dont forget her! But there is nothing wrong I think if you have 1 or 2 drinks socially and are 17+ or - and you are responsible. 21 is silly. Nobody in the USA waits that long to drink.

I think I read Marat Safin drinks a bit, but not too much as well
wow I didn't know Monica drinks, but I am sure a few social drinks doesn't hurt

Iva is a real party animal LOL

Yes Marat drinks for sure, and I'm pretty sure 90% or more of both tours. Of course all in moderation. I'm sure none of them are alcoholics :o

NONE of them? haha yeah right..out of approx 2000 cumulative pro tennis players im sure there's a fair few with a substance abuse problem ;)

This thread wouldn't be a thinly veiled excuse to have your 932nd dig at Jen Capriati would it Mr Rexx???

Do YOU drink Mr Rexx? Or are you Amish?

Tee Rexx spreads the word about the demon drink...

The Great Conchi is a known heavy smoker and drinker.
And womanizer as well. :)

Chris Ba should be on the tour because he is usually plastered, especially when he is posting on this board.

That doesn't surprise me. He strikes me as the life-of-the-party type...and I read somewhere that Mauresmo actually has her own wine cellar!

No-one said she does. TeeRex just said that she would have a lot of access to it because Damir is a known drinker

but u really need to define what a drinker is...

I agree! Having that kind of father as example could lead to totally oposite direction.

Here is a few of the girls at a dinner having drinks, but that doesn't mean that they do it very often, and I'm pretty sure that it's not to the point of intoxication. They look like they are being responsible and having fun. :)

:rolleyes: I'm sure almost all the players drink at least a little. How many teenagers/adults do you know that don't/didn't drink at least a sip here or there?

It all depends on the individual. A lot of the adults that I knew growing up were always smoking or had a drink in their hand, so for that reason I have never smoked, or taken a drink, not even casually. I don't see anything wrong with casual drinking though, as long as it doesn't develop into a problem. Smoking on the other hand is something I can't understand why they would do. It makes it very hard to breathe, and it will affect you out on the court. It can make the difference in whether someone wins or loses.

I went to a bar/restaurant called Pussers (!!! not a typo) in Fort Lauderdale last year. It was during spring break 2001 and the Ericcson Open was being played close by in Miami. Venus was playing someone on the tv above the bar and our waitress said that Venus and Serena had dined and drinked on more than one occassion, as the art institute they studied at was just a mile away. She said that Venus had beer and Serena like caribbean rum drinks like Plantuer's Punch. We asked if they got intoxicated and loud and she said no, they just had a drink with dinner and quietly giggled.

Tee Rexx: We all know what this post is about because you continue to get less amusing and more predictable. I would love to hear of your firsthand knowledge that Capriati is a "heavy drinker". Surely you are not making this accusation on the pics we saw of her getting funky with Iva on one occasion. Because if that were true.. let's see..you'd be a hypocrite. Those that make false accusations or veiled comments about your faves seem to be the devil incarnates...What does that make you?

Chris Ba: Love the pic.

Griffin: your post is classic, as usual.

I for one do not have time to worry about the personal lives of tennis players, ecspecially those that are not my faves. I figure they've been doing just fine without my input...

Celine Beigbeder smokes close to a pack a day when she has coffe..guess she hasnt lost those old secretary habits;)

I can't prove if its true, but I heard Capriati goes out and has several beers regularly after a tough loss.

Monica, Venus, Serena, Davenport have occasional drinks, but very very rarely get drunk (venus and serena probably have not yet)

Stevenson does not drink..mommy wont let her:rolleyes:

Someone told me each player in the Top 100 is a raging alcoholic/chain smoker. This is why they shortened the season. All that nonsense about getting rest and working on their games was b.s. They needed the extra weeks at Betty Ford to dry out for the next season.

DID YOU KNOW...

*There is an AA meeting (not automobile association) at every single WTA event that currently exists on the tour.

*The WTA is the third biggest drinking sport association, behind the World Darts Organisation and (naturally), the International Alcohol Sports Federation.

* Heineken who help sponsor the Australian Open also provide the player beverages in the bottles on court, although this doesn't really hinder players concentration as it is p*ss weak anyway.

* In a recent survey of all top 100 WTA Players, the response to the question "What do you spend your earnings from tennis on most", 95 players replied "booze".

*Although boozing amongst female tennis players is becoming more popular than ever, the tour's doctors are increasingly warning the players about the dangers of their alcohol "abuse". Excessive drinking can lead to kidney failure, heart attacks, brain damage, lung cancer, AIDS, the clap, and Kebab Elbow.

I've been known to take a few nips in my day (that means sips of alcoholic beverages, not nipples as in lady breasts because those don't turn me on AT ALL!!! I am way too crazy about the dudes, man if I could have a big johnson inside...but I digress) and I remember one incident back at the Slims of Oakland in '91. Me, Cappy, Conchi, Wendy Turnbull (huge LUSH by the way), Chris, Camille Benjamin, Sandra Cecchini, Andrea Leand and Rene Blount all went out to Hooters to check out the fellas and show off our own HOOTERS!!! We were so man crazy that night! I was chasing anything with a handlebar mustache that night!!! We got tanked on my favorite drink, they are called Green Lanterns it's one part Creme De Menthe, One part Gin, and One Part Listerine. Well after 40 or so pitchers of these babies there wasn't nothing we gals wouldn't do! Wendy was mooning everyone, Chris started shaving her arms right at the table (little known piece of trivia about Chris-she shaves her arms, always has) and JennCap hooked up with a fella that bore a striking resemblance to Mister Bernie Kopell aka Doc from television's "The Love Boat". It was a crazy night and I think I DID about thirty dudes one after another I was so plowed and SO HETEROSEXUAL!!! GOD I LOVE MEN!!! I really do!

Well the next thing I know, I wake up in my hotel room and the walls are covered in blood and vomit. Wendy's lying on the carpet in nothing but a pair of Torn size 98 Hanes her way panties with Conchi right next to her (LORD KNOWS WHAT THAT WAS ABOUT!!!) while I was in the sack with a hobo named Clauderoy that I picked up behind of Sub shop at 5am.

Ah those were the days!

PamShriver
Sep 13th, 2002, 06:45 PM
Helen, I knew you wouldn't approve. After all you've always said, "Broadway doesn't have time for BOOZE and DOPE!!!". So I would hardly expect you to understand.

I've loved you since I was a little girl though (please don't stab me in the back!).

If you ever have time I'd love to hear you sing your big hit, "I"ll plant my own tree". Those are some of the most intelligent lyrics I've ever heard.

i.e. "It's my yard, so I will try hard to welcome friends I have never known..." Did James Joyce write the lyrics for that song? Truly inspiring.

Helen Lawson
Sep 13th, 2002, 06:59 PM
Darling, my line was "But Broadway doesn't go for BOOOOZE and DOPE" not "have time for." Stick to tennis Pam! Well, I brought down the house in New Haven with "I'll Plant My Own Tree" so I stick to the classics.

As long as you leave my wig alone, Pam, I think I can give you front row tickets to my next musical. I'm Blanche DuBois in a musical/comedy adaptation of a "Streetcar Named Desire." If you thought the lines were deep for "I'll Plan My Own Tree" wait until you hear my lyrics in this beauty!

PamShriver
Sep 13th, 2002, 07:12 PM
You are so right Helen!!!

I'm very excited to see your new show it sounds fantastic!!!

I'll never forget the time I saw you perform at the Pepperpot Playhouse in Moline. It was "MIRACLE", the musical version of The Miracle Worker, you were, of course, Helen Keller and played it beautifully!

I have to say you brought tears to my eyes when you sang the balllad "lsdkjraowidthaowdtfawpdiojfasdkfja[owdit" As well as when you sang the showstopper, "MWAAAAAAAAAAAA!"

Sheer brilliance.

btw, Helen, Wendy T. says hi, rumor has it you two hooked up Hershey when Wendy was playing the Slims of Hershey in '84 and you were touring in "GodSpell"! Ssssh...I won't tell if you won't.

Kisses,

Ah, the memories, so many shows, so many roles, so many songs. Hershey, what can I say? I usually "got a man waitin' for me" (unless it's the movie trailer instead of the actual movie, then I "got a guy waitin' for me") after each performance/cocktail party held in my honor, but it was slow that night and, well, Wendy is Wendy, so what can I say? I have at least maintained my figure.

Not to be impertinent Helen, but that's a switch from the FAGS you're usually stuck with!

But Helen, Wendy did say that you got up off the orange beanbag chair that you two were making lady love on in the HoJo's of Downtown Hershey put on your lime green pantsuit and fire engine red wig and walked out of the room the way you came in...WITH DIGNITY!!!

Agree that Old Wendy T has packed on a few since her glory days, but she recently played a tough three setter against Alice Marble and almost took a set off of Alice, so she's still got the shots-ALL THREE HUNDRED POUNDS OF HER! Though if you are to believe the WTA Legends Media Guide Wendy is still the same 5'4 120lbs that she was back in '77 when she first set the tennis world on fire at Forest Hills. You know, the year before a certain MOP TOPPED DUDE LOVIN TEENAGER from Lutherville Maryland set the tennis world on it's ear with her inspiring run to the finals of her first U.S. OPEN!!! They still show highlights of my dream run at homeless shelters across the country for inspirational purposes.

But I digress!

Kisses,

I would suspect most players "partake of the grape" on occasion. And generally behave like adults. (Not a word about Sundowners, Bea.:p)

Until there's a "Girls gone wild: WTA edition" video released, I'd find it hard to believe they were any different than anyone else.

Yes, my dear Wendy is just a biscuit shy of 300 pounds, poor thing.

The question may not be so much as who is drinking, but who is abusing alcohol and becoming a wild woman when she indulges.

Social drinking may be fine, just as long as one does not start peeling their clothes off and/or engaging in other negative social behavior after over indulging.
