I don't think the money motivated her, but the losing did.

This will definitely help her win a TREMENDOUS deal with someone, hopefully Puma.

I want that Cameroon outfit to come back.:D

No doubt the money motivated her. She wants a contract to rival big Sis's. Plus I read she is about to sign with Nike. :cool:

So what?! What´s the point?! If she can begin winning all of sudden just to land a contract more power to her! This does tell you that when she wants to win nobody can beat her!!

I don't think Serena was motivated by money. It's not like she was improverished. She knew she should have won more slams since '99 and she had to prove to herself and everyone else that she could. A new contract with bigger bucks is just gravy.

of course. with Serena it's not about the tennis, it's about the fame, money, glamour, etc. she's kinda fake and it's pissing me off

I think it did. Maybe it helped "motivate" Venus to ;)

Hi ANTON!:D

and no, to answer your question. Serena said on Oprah that when she got hurt at the begining of OZ that she was so motivated to win as much as possible.

:D :D Dawn, I too think it was more of a "personal thing" with Serena!!! The Sista was just "tired of losing" to players she knew she shouldn't!!! Nothing more, nothing less!!!:D :D

However, as someone else already stated, "the rest is just gravy"!!:D :D

Venus signed the 5 year, 40 million deal in the Fall of 2000. So it will conclude at the end of 2005 :)

deng can't a sista get paid? Of course she did it for the money, and the fame. :rolleyes: :D. lol. Serena likes to shop, and she has to take care of her doo, and all her mutts. Did anyone see on MTV diary when she went pick up her dogs and her credit card was denied. LMAO! Well after that Rena wen't on to spank Jen in Miami. All she needed was a little motivation. Thanks American Express.

Also, I've heard that Monica was motivated by money also. Just a rumour though, don't know how true it is.;)

:D @ harloo!!

Monica is the Money Hungry Queen. When Steffi and Kournikova both pulled out of an expo in Memphis in 2000, who played? Monica and Mary Joe.

She didnt do it for the money. She was already rich enough before she started winning, she only did it because she had a bad year last year and was really motivated to win, especially after her injury. Some of the crap people come up with to take credit away from Serena is just ridiculous :rolleyes:

Wait wait wait. Serena started wining? she's become a boozehound? I'm not really sure how you guys can think that hittin' the bottle is going to get her a better clothing contract.

Gee, I guess the same thing could be said about Venus in 2000. Serena started winning because she was sick and tired of losing.

Dawn Marie

Come on now it was all about getting tired of losing. Her last injury woke her up and made her "MAD". She knows that in tennis time is short that this year was the time to start winning the big ones again. Her contract is added bonus.:):)

Serena started winning because her groundies were more consistant, her serve was outstanding, and those angles drew errors from her opponents. Serena's GAME was the key factor imho.:)

Experimente I hear yah, on what your stating.:)
FEARLESS SERENA RULEZ:)

Serena put Puma back on the map.. at least in my mind.. I bought a pair of Puma last year because I know Serena wore Puma.. gonna pay again this year if they just find a way to get more styles like Nike..

Anyway, I think Puma will do there best to keep Serena as I do not want to see Serena be anther boring Nike, same dress for all player.
