American bluesman Robert Johnson was reputed to have made a deal with the Deval si he could play the blues better than anyone else. Onne aspect of this is that it's rumnored that it took him under two years to go from picking up the guitar to being a master musician and songwriter. The other apsect is he died at 27. It's not terrbly surprising he died young. Selling your soul to the Devil never works out. But he DID play the blues better than anyone else.

Which brings us to my question.

Which player would you say sold her soul to the Devil so she could play tennis better than anyone else? Remember, selling you soul to the Devil doesn't work out, historically. So you could pick Hingis. Or Tracy Austin. Or Chris O'Neill.

I'll tell you who. Conchita Martinez sold her soul to the devil in exchange for the 94 Wimbeldon title. I mean come on, beating Martina on your worst surface and her best? I know the old bat was ancient and all but still she's the fucking Martina Navratilova at fucking Wimbeldon.

yeah... Roger = too good!

I remember people always saying how the womans game had dominate figures and it was no fun. But look at Roger on the ATP! :eek: He can't keep winning like this, right? :scratch:

Well, she went from ok, to good... to really strong and really fit... too like an illness and a mental breakdown and a broken bone! If that ain't Karma, what is! :shrug:

OMG, OMG :scared:

I can actually see Justine standing there, dialing 555-DEVIL, making a deal to sell her soul. And he is tryna get rid of Pierre-Yves... And Justine saying: Zo When I Marry Ze Thing, I Will Win All Ze Matches??? :bolt:
