Q. A couple years ago when the Williams sisters came in here, it was sort of a foregone conclusion they would reach the finals. They might play in the fourth round. From your perspective, what's happened to Venus and Serena?

MARY PIERCE: I don't know. You know, they're the best people to ask.

Q. Do you sense they're not as engaged in the sport as they were before?

MARY PIERCE: You know, I don't know. I think Serena and Venus are really interesting girls. I like them a lot. I have admiration for them and respect. I think they're doing a lot of great things for women and sports on and off the court. Very interesting.

I think that they're really the best ones to ask I think of what's going on with them.

Q. Sometimes the Williams sisters are criticized for all their off‑court activities as a distraction. You had a very nice positive comment a moment ago about them being good for sports and for women. Can you expand on that a little bit, please? >

MARY PIERCE: Well, I think also for their color, it's great. You see a lot other girls that are coming out now, young girls in the USTA that are coming out and playing. I think that was great. We had Zina before and Laurie. You know, just for young girls in general, to get them out there and play sports and have confidence in themselves.

I think Venus and Serena do have confidence in themselves and they go after what they want and they know what they want. I think those are great qualities to have. To dream and to know that things can become reality.

Q. The off‑court activity has a plus side to it?

MARY PIERCE: You know, I don't know. I don't look at things that way actually. I look at things totally differently. If you're happy and you're doing what you want to do, it's great. That's all that really matters.

Yeah it's for that reason, some journalists don't like to interview Mary, she never says bad comments about a player, she is always nice with everybody!!!

:lol: you would not be able to find many active high profile players that would say such glowing things about Justine, Venus and Serena in a few short weeks.

Mary is the best. Anyone who dislikes her is a moron. I'm sorry but it's true - I can understand disliking Patty but not Mary.

That's so sweet of Mary. A lot of players could learn a thing or two from her about not disrespecting your opponents.

Mary is a smart sportswoman. She refuses to get into gossipmongering and saying things that aren't necessary.

wow this is very interesting coz I saw an article on teletext today or maybe it was Ceefax but with it's info based on this Mary interview and the article went on about how Mary was sounding the "death knell for the Williams sisters". :rolleyes: Some journalists can just twist anything into being negative :mad:

Ive always loved Mary. She's wonderful. And Venus and Serena took after her in the on court fashion. Before the sisters, she was really the fashion diva! Kudos Mary!

I am so happy to see Mary playing well again. Hope she will go through QF and beat one of the Williams! They are not in their best shape.


I think it's true that the Williams pay more attention to other things else. But that is life. We, tennis fans, will be sad...but it the players' right to enjoy what they like.

You see Anna K.? She is not a tennis player anymore :sad:

Mary Pierce had a long hard road to happy. It's not very likely you're gonna find her dissing other players now. She knows what its like to be miserable and a GS champ.
