Re: Rules of Tennis - Rule No.26: Hindrance

I think if they just announce at the beginning of the match whether it will be played using official rules, or Serena's rules, there really wouldn't be a problem. Stosur won the U.S. Open playing...

The Wozniacki Virus

Sammy: So Serener, I heard you caught that 12-hour bug called Wozniacki the other day. How did you get rid of it so fast?

Serener: I crawled across the court, made it to my purse, reached in...

Tarpaulins

I posted this in BFTP, with 30 looks and not one response:

I know this doesn't deal directly with a particular player from the past (but it could put a damper on legends play), but why, with all...

Re: End of Era?

I think most players will admit that when Serena plays her best tennis, she's still the best player in the world, and you'd have to run her over in the parking lot for her not to win a match. The...

Re: The last 4.. WWWW? Who will win Wimbledon 2011?

I'm hoping for an Azarenka / Sharapova final under a closed roof. Just the thought of all those screams and shrieks multiplied by the echoes inside under the roof makes me chuckle in advance. It...

Re: The five best and worst dressed players at Wimbledon 2011

Venus' toga is one of the worst I've ever seen at Wimbledon. The deep cut shows when her undergarments are sagging (among other things), and from behind it's hardly a flattering look when the skirt...

Re: Mats Wilander: Best player in the world? - Don't look at the rankings!

Me, of course. When I put on a dress and decide to grace the throngs clamoring to see me, they don't even pay attention to the competition, let alone what's happening with the ball.

Re: Famous Lesbian Tennis Stars

I'll buy that (to a certain extent) because most straight guys I know are busy going around trying to make something happen with anything that moves. However, I don't think getting a girl or girls...

Re: Famous Lesbian Tennis Stars

"Meanwhile all the girls in the locker room are drooling over Steffi's legs". You have to give it to Navratilova, sometimes she comes up with gems in the commentary booth!

Re: Empty stands on Chatrier when ladies matches are on

Personally, I think it has to do with the quality of tennis. Sure, the girls are trying, but so many (most) are afraid of the net, and actually back up when drawn in (Sharapova and Hantuchova are...

Re: Famous Lesbian Tennis Stars

Maybe someone out there can shed some light on a subject I've aways wondered about. Admittedly, I'm generalizing, but why do many straight men consider it a fantasy to have or watch two lesbians go...

Re: The Obligatory ESPN Bitching Thread

In answer to your question- money. I'm sure ESPN has a lot more at its disposal. And besides not caring about Manchester United, did you see how many people were packed into that stadium. Oh to...

Re: The Obligatory ESPN Bitching Thread

It was 7:25PM in Paris when ESPN finally came on with their taped "coverage". I don't know, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I was only at Roland Garros during the daylight- I don't think they have...

Re: Why do people understimate Margaret Court so much?

Oh, Billie Jean has dissed most of her rivals' games at some point, but she usually picked on a player who either beat her or she knew could beat her on a good day. Virginia Wade comes to mind. The...

Re: Why do people understimate Margaret Court so much?

Arrogant isn't necessarily a bad trait, especially when it comes to being the best. All #1s have this sort of self-awareness when they step onto the court. It doesn't come out of the mouths of the...

Re: Why do people understimate Margaret Court so much?

All of them with the notable exceptions of Margaret Court and Steffi Graf, neither of which engaged in denigrating others. Sure, you can find the odd quip or jab made during a response (usually...

Re: Serena Williams pull out of French Open

It's unfortunate, because the game really needs her to shake up all this one-dimensional play. She would pound Caroline right off the block (as would Justine Henin if she were still playing). ...

Re: Why do people understimate Margaret Court so much?

Forgive the spelling of the name, but I believe it was Kaarsten Brasch. All you had to say was weird serve and I remembered him immediately!

Re: Why do people understimate Margaret Court so much?

My point is that if you include "69-71" in the mix, which you clearly are, during those years King lost in several majors that had great fields. She didn't lose because of her off-court activism,...

Re: Why do people understimate Margaret Court so much?

I'm not so sure you can say losing to Ann Jones at 69 Wimbledon (Pipper defeated Court in the semis in a great match), Court at 1970 Wimbledon, and Goolagong in 1971 were depleted fields. Those...
