View Full Version : Can You tell me why ...

VENUS and SERENA play each other in the US OPEN FINALS, on prime time broadcast, after crushing most of the top ten on the way and it is, "Oh well, no big deal".
Capriati wins because Hingis nearly passes out from heat when she was TWO points from waxing Little Cuss and it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

VENUS moves in to the #2 spot, but the web page headlines were:
"Hingis Moves In To The #3 Spot On The Rankings"

VENUS wins her match easily and has ONE picture on the Yahoo site;
But Kournikova LOSES AND HAS five pics on the same site!

THAT'S why I'm angry sometimes.

Well, the Jen vs Martina match was a greater spectacle cos it was so close ....

Martina had won a tournament to get up to number 3 sport whereas Venus hadn't....

It's newer news and therefore will be in the news now ...

We all know that Kournikova gets too much media attention(especially considering her results),compared with other players.I do not like her very much but it is good because she attracts much attention on women tennis!;)

But it is right that sometimes Venus and Serena donīt get the press attention they deserve.The all-Williams final was phenomental(maybe historical) event.But the media were not very interested in it compared to other events!Now if the 2002 Aussie Open final is shown 5 times(6 included the live one) on eurosport at one week-end Iīm not only getting bored but also a little angry!
