I went with Serena and Justine. Although, Serena and Maria is a close second. I like the Serena/ Justine because they do have a bit of a difference in style. Plus, there always seems to be a bit of...

Wonder if they'll ask Hewitt if he cried? :lol:

Anyway, it was a great tournament for Amelie. She did well. I think all four women in the semis were playing top tennis.

I'm sure Paola and Vivi are nice people and all that but frankly I think they're over rated. By that I mean when you compare them to the best doubles teams of all times. Sure, Paola and Vivi have...

Well, I wasn't there but I have read that when Suzanne Lenglen defaulted her match against Mallory in the 1921, US National there was a lot of booing. Also, in 1933, when Wills defaulted in the final...

If women can compete, and they do, in things such as the Triathlons they can certainly go 5 sets in tennis.

You can't compare tennis to a 9-5 hour job. It's not the same thing. The fact is no one male or female is paid an hourly or how many sets did you play wage. Money in sports, just like entertainment,...

Thank you Brian for making that clear. It's amazing how many little "stories" start getting around about the BJK v Riggs match. There's also the "claim" that Riggs bet against himself and now there's...

Well, let's see, Alice Marble is dead and Portia de Rossi doesn't play tennis :shrug: So, I guess we'll have to wait about another five years.

Seriously, I can't understand why Amelie doesn't...

I didn't get to see this match until it was 3-3 in the third. From the little I saw I was impressed with both Serena and Maria. I agree with John that Maria did NOT choke. Serena simply was tougher...

I tried imitating Pete Sampras's serve. I'd lift my toe of the ground, rock back etc., but it kept throwing my timing off and I would release the ball too soon. So, I then tried serving more like the...

I'd go with Serena as number one and either Justine or Jen ranked # 2. It seems when ever you put Serena on court with either Justine or Jen you get just about everything you'd want in a tennis...
