Remember? :devil:

http://www.tennis-x.com/story/2005-03-11/h.php

The outspoken Karatantcheva made her WTA Tour debut as a 14-year-old last year at Indian Wells, advancing to the third round. The Bulgarian's win this year earns her a meeting with world No. 1 Lindsay Davenport (http://www.tennis-x.com/playernews/Lindsay-Davenport.php) in the second round.

In 2004 Karatancheva said she was going to "kick her butt" prior to a meeting with Maria Sharapova (http://www.tennis-x.com/playernews/Maria-Sharapova.php), but this year "The Mouth" is more subdued in her approach.

"I'm going to approach things more professionally," Karatancheva said. "Besides, I was 14 (last year). I have a right for one strike."

Virtually everyone says something they regret later at 14 years old. I certainly don't anything from way back when against her. I'm sure when she was 4 years old she had a few things to say too. Most 4 year olds do.

Perhaps a quote from 2010 would be more useful.

People really need to get over their holier than thou crap... she was an excited (and talented) 14 year old who was goaded into saying something newsworthy by media desperate to generate rivalry and controversy. I'm sure Sesil cringes at this the way all honest people cringe at a pile of stuff they said and did when they were 14 and thought they were grown up and knew everything...

But, Pova shouldn't let Sesil present too much of a problem.

*JR*
Jun 10th, 2010, 08:50 PM
Sesil supposedly said it because she felt that Masha had been afraid to play her since their days @ Bollettieri. BTW, Sesil was even more resentful of Nikki (who's much closer to her in age) as she felt that the IMG agent based there favored Vaidisova. I uh, "wonder why" (though of course Nikki's career has been "put on hold" for the time being).

JamieOwen3
Jun 10th, 2010, 08:51 PM
yes she was 14 at the time but still she shouldn't have said that she was going to kick her butt when she hadn't played her before keeping quiet is the best thing for her because talk like that usually fires up maria anyway or talk about how you beat her remember agnieszka's comment after her win in 2007 us open? what happened in doha 2008? and everytime since then :lol: it happened to sesil also 2005 australian open and 2005 wimbledon meetings against maria were beatdowns hopefully sesil has matured im sure she has she's 19 or 20 now isn't she? and i hope it's a good match

Yet there are more coming attractions, and Karatantcheva and Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic, both 15 and both training at Bollettieri's, are two teenagers that must be followed this season.

"We're good friends, and we're both just starting out. It's good to know someone who is in your shoes, who knows what you feel like," Sesil said.

The only time they have played was in the final of a small tournament just before the 2004 French Open. "I won. You want to win badly, and you do everything you can to win. But out of the court, that has nothing to do with life on the court," she said.

"After the match, we were just chilling and talking, laughing because we both got leather jackets for reaching the final. Mine was orange and hers was purple. We never talked about the match. We're just two teenagers talking about stupid stuff."

Vaidisova, who turns 16 on April 23, had an earlier start in professional play and already is at No. 75. Karatantcheva, who turns 16 on Aug. 8, stepped up her professional play after winning the 2004 French Open juniors.

Somewhere along the way she's going to play Sharapova again. I doubt she'll be ready to do any derriere kicking for a few months, but who knows? If confidence can take you halfway there, she's already into the second set.

Jun 10th, 2010, 09:03 PM
Bollettieri is convinced Karatantcheva's name will be rolling off the tongues of American fans before long.

"Tommy Haas said it - she's very competitive. She has great wheels, man. And a great attitude. She's not afraid to hit the ball, and she's beginning to get a little spin for control."

Bollettieri said Karatantcheva and 15-year-old Nicole Vaidisova, who won the Vancouver Women's Open last summer, could develop into the next Sharapovas.

Her serve has seemingly improved now, though it is still technically a nightmare. Her backhand definitely isn't the weapon it once was but maybe that had something to do with the drugs? Anyway, I just love watching her move around the court more than anything, it's beautiful.

Oh, definitely. I have always seen him as more talented as Federer and I think their 2005 Australian Semifinal was probably one of the closest we will ever get to a "Peak vs Peak" match from two players of that talent. What Marat achieved was great, but it's sad that had he just put a little more effort into his tennis, he could have achieved so much more.

I always felt the subsequent decline of Safin wasn't very well considered.

At the end of '02, he slaughtered Hewitt in the Paris Masters final, and helped Russia secure the Davis Cup. Then in Australia, he injured his wrist and was out for basically the WHOLE season. Then amazingly he reached the final of the Aussie in '04, and had a surge towards the end of the year, winning back to back Masters events, beating Agassi, Hewitt etc.

2005 could've been the zenith of his career, but that knee injury effectively wrecked his career. Was never the same after 2005 IMO. Lost the timing and fluency on his superlative backhand, and had to rely too heavily on his forehand, which inconsistencies are well noted. Really hurt him mentally, and he'd lost a lot of his innate agility too.

But his win over Sampras at the USO in '00. Fucking A*.

Talent is a matter of interpretation. It doesn't mean anything at all if you don't have the work ethic or mental strength to back it up, which Federer does and Safin didn't. :shrug:

Do you even know what you're talking about. Shut up.

Safin's movement was superb pre-2005. He was always praised for his movement especially with him being so tall. Safin had a huge serve, clubbing backhand, and raw effortless power. Safin could display a wide variety of shots in his game not limited to volleying/slicing.

If Sisi (her real nickname, Special K was just intended for marketing purposes) told me that "the sky was blue on a sunny day, I'd verify that on a color chart". :shrug: When I used to communicate with her regularly during the suspension, she was insanely jealous of Nikki (who was then a rising tennis star with bigname sponsors like Citizen Watch).

Don't believe all the the "Player A: Player B and I are such great friends" spin. ;) Even Ana and JJ used to pretend that; if not for being from the 2 rival regions of BEL (plus the late Lei Clijsters having all but accused Justine of doping) she and Kim probably would have too.

Del Potro moves as good as Safin, has a far superior forehand, actually has a good backhand (whereas Safin's forehandhand was a liability) has volleying skills at least as good as Safina's, and has a better serve.

The outspoken Karatantcheva made her WTA Tour debut as a 14-year-old last year at Indian Wells, advancing to the third round. The Bulgarian's win this year earns her a meeting with world No. 1 Lindsay Davenport (http://www.tennis-x.com/playernews/Lindsay-Davenport.php) in the second round.

In 2004 Karatancheva said she was going to "kick her butt" prior to a meeting with Maria Sharapova (http://www.tennis-x.com/playernews/Maria-Sharapova.php), but this year "The Mouth" is more subdued in her approach.

"I'm going to approach things more professionally," Karatancheva said. "Besides, I was 14 (last year). I have a right for one strike."
Anything that comes out of the mouth of someone 16 and under should be easily dismissed. Can you imagine if someone held any one of these posters accountable for the foolish things they said as a young teen (which some of you still are)? It's simply not worth the time.

Agreed.

Federer = Graf
Nadal = Seles
Safin = Pierce

Of course, some argue that Pierce is the most talented ever, and at her peak she could probably blitz anyone.
But this just shows the severe limitations of Peak vs Peak discussions IMO.

You could have posted the words quoted in bold 5 years ago. Sesil is "stuck in place" (and will never get sponsors unless she wins @ least a WTA Premier event). On that long Ad she had for break in the last game, she couldn't reverse the sequence, from her fh to Masha's to trading bh's instead. Good riddance, Sisi. :bigwave:
