She just told Serena that she has 13 major titles and how nice would it be to win her 3rd US Open.
Serena was cool and after making a surprised face, said I lost count.

Julia Cohen? Melanie Oudin? Irina Falconi? Lauren Davis? Alexa Glatch?

Those are the only 5 americans between Top 100 and Top 150 right now :lol:

Judging that you are friends with Laura and Heather and the age, I'm guessing Lauren Davis? :lol:

She meant her doubles titles. She has 13 doubles GS titles and 2 of them are USO titles..
Next time you need to prepare for making a thread better..

MJF would never make such a mistake. What is surprising is that she didn't qualify her statement with the word "doubles" to ensure clarity.

I clearly heard "singles titles". It was on my laptop speakers and it wasn't very loud, so there is a possibility I missed a word or two, but then so did Serena, judging by her expression.

No http://imgsrv2.tennisuniverse.com/wtaworld/images/buttons/blue/reputation.gif to the lower left of a post. Anyhow, Jamie Hampton and Kimiko Date have posted here in the past, and I presume others have anonymously. Also some parents, like the father of Alexus Jones.

Regarding Mary Joe, I hope she doesn't mess up on the record of a present IMG client, especially one of her agent husband, Tony Godsick (like Masha). :help: Serena is no longer with them, though Venus still is (I think with Carlos Fleming).

ESPN3 put the match on the replay cue.
So, the way Mary Joe worded the question was very ambiguous.
She said: "Serena, what would it feel like to win another title, it would be your 14th and your 3rd US Open".
Serena: (looking surprised) "Fourteenth?"
Mary Joe: "Fourteenth major and it would be your third US Open"
Serena: "It would be great... I.... I.. lost count? (laughing)"
Mary Joe: "It's so many!.....I guess it's a good thing"
Serena: " No, it would be a really, really good thing. I would love that. We haven't played here in so many years. It would be really special."

I now see that Mary Joe meant doubles titles, but the way she directed the question to Serena alone, it implied she asked about Serena's titles, not the pair's titles. That's why Serena and viewers like me were thrown off. In the end Serena probably made the connection to doubles titles, and answered the last question correctly, but I, as a viewer did not see the meaning right away. Mary Joe should have inserted the word "doubles" in the question. Then it would be clear to everyone watching what she meant. The word "your" can mean personal and exclusive or shared. That's what caused the confusion in the first place.

Roger Federer recently left IMG, and he took Tony Godsick with him.

I know right lol, it was probably a lunatic that wanted to be "cool" and be a player for a few minutes. OR it was Julia Cohen lol

I clearly heard "singles titles". It was on my laptop speakers and it wasn't very loud, so there is a possibility I missed a word or two, but then so did Serena, judging by her expression.

Serena always makes a face when you talked about her number of wins or title or random facts about her. You can't really say it was because someone made a mistake or not.

exactly, that poster never said something like "congrats Julia" but more like answering the topic lol like saying "It's a great achievement" or "work is the key" lol. On the other hand, I don't see how Julia could be friend with Robson and Watson :s

Lol, that poster was obviously fake. In almost all of their 9 posts they somehow mentioned that they were ranked in the top 150 or were friends with WTA players. Aint no real WTA player going to be name dropping in every post like that.

Why would you think she was banned. She said she couldn't start threads. It's because she is too new. You can't start threads right away.

Mods automatically ban members that have multiple accounts...it was likely a sock puppet account for somebody else here.

The fact that so many people bought the story, though. :sobbing:

Well back on topic, MJF is probably the best American commentator out there. I love her focus on the players' games, and most of the time, she provides insight and doesn't bother to stoop down to Pam Shriver/Chrissie Evert's nonsense

MJF or Tracy Austin (if I'm not missing anyone) sounds good for the Americans. Though in contrast to MJF's kool, no nonsense demeanor, Austin's urgent tone can be off putting to some.

I know Hampton posted here in the past (even though she deleted most of her posts), but Date??? Proof please.

As she had her membership erased (she probably used it just to "revive her name" B4 her comeback) I can't "prove it". She certainly was unpretentious though, which makes it seem genuine. (Unlike the supposed Nathalie Tauziat who was so inyaface, until I stumped her on something the real one would have known).



Roger Federer recently left IMG, and he took Tony Godsick with him.

Thanks Darrin, interesting about Tony. I think I erred about Masha anyhow, and seem to recall that Max Eisenbud was/is her IMG agent. Serena originally left the "tennis stuff" there, and only went to Wm Morris for her acting gigs, until they diversified into sports (initially just for her, I think).
