I click the "Chat Live" link but the page never loads for me.

Me too. I think the tour was at its best when it was Anna K, Martina Hingis, the Williams sisters, Seles, etc. I still enjoy watching women's tennis but it's not the same anymore for me. :sad:

WhatTheDeuce
May 31st, 2008, 08:08 PM
monicAnna: Anna, what do you think of the state of the Tour right now? Do you feel at all like women's tennis was in a better place when you were around, along with the likes of Seles, Capriati, Arantxa, among other legends?

Anna Kournikova: what an awesome question!
Anna Kournikova: i definitely feel that it was so exciting. we had the legends like you mentioned and a lot of young people like me in the late 90s and early 2000...
Anna Kournikova: now anybody can win and there's not as many famous names...
Anna Kournikova: there's sharapova and the williams sisters but there's not as many recognizable names...
Anna Kournikova: so i definitely think it was a more exciting time when i was playing.


WOOOO!!!! ANNA SAID MY QUESTION WAS AWESOME!!! :banana: hahahahha I love her so much

BeckyBlair718 has entered the room "Anna Kournikova"
Anna Kournikova: i do love watching serena because there's something happening. sharapova, ivanovich (she's really cute too!) in the women as well. federer, nadal, etc. in the men..

Her toughest loss in a final was to Venus, but her absolute worst final loss was to Smashnova. :o

monicAnna: You haven't made an "official" retirement announcement just yet... is that something you plan to do when you're positive you'll never come back, or are you just gonna let things be?
Anna Kournikova: i never made a retirement announcement because it started as taking a break for an injury i had...
Anna Kournikova: and then it continued with me not wanting to come back until i'm 100%...
Anna Kournikova: i just wanted to avoid the hoopla and i don't know whether i'm retired forever or if there's a chance i might play 1 tournament, 5 tournaments, etc...
Anna Kournikova: i don't want to be one of those people who retires and then everybody talks about how they come out of retirement, even if i came back just to play 1 tournament.

She said that in onther words, but not fit...

Moderator2: Our first question taken from the message boards as part of the K-Swiss Win a Call from AnnaK Contest is a two-parter from dkolenz and jojoseph_ak. Have you thought about returning to the tour? Have you considered coming back to play doubles only?
Anna Kournikova: i have thought about it on and off...
Anna Kournikova: right now it'd be difficult physically and it would take a big toll on my physical health...
Anna Kournikova: so unfortunately right now i don't see it happening.

edwynx: if i may ask, have you ever dated an atp player?
Anna Kournikova: dated is a little strong. i did have a lot of friends on the ATP who kind of took me under their wing and there definitely was some attraction with some of them but i never dated any of them.

LMFAO "took me under their wing"

Thanks for trying. I wonder why your posts don't work, though.

Interesting comments about a return to the tour, although nothing surprising.

She asked for more personal questions, so somebody should ask what she thinks about Ashley posing for Playboy and etc, without being rude of course.

She was not a "legend" by any tennis measure. Frankly Jen wasn't, much as I like her. So I'm being objective here. But she did win 3 Slam singles titles and made #1. Anna's records were in things like calendar sales. :rolleyes:

You want to say she attracted fans (some of whom actually stayed after she left) and got more girls playing, fine. That's being an ambassador for the game, not a legend.

You didn't even see "it," your "friend" did.

When I was at Amelia Island, everyone who met her said she was the nicest player there last year and at the party afterwards didn't party or anything, she just wanted to sit down and meet people, like her fans.

Everyone I know who's met her says that she's very sweet, actually. I'm not really sure of the authenticity of your story, honestly.

But we're off-topic. Just PM me.

This was fun. I hope Anna holds another chat within the next half-year. :)

Her last match was in a $25K in 2003 May, where she lost to Bruna Colosio :sad:

I think she's going to be 27. I don't think she'll ever come back. But I wish she could come back and win a title just to shut up some people.


Great from her to chat with her fans :) Lucky What the Deuce :p
