Where I come from, it's spelled 'moxie' and it means something completely different. Like they perform under pressure, even if they don;t look good doing it.

Guess I've aged out of social relevance.

BTW Do you not see the areas that you really do - constantly - go overboard in?
How you reached that conclusion is beyond me.

People don't often see what others do, so why don't you tell me.

I'm fairly old myself, I just learned the urban version a few days ago.

Did you just start following tennis last summer?

The rap on Serena Williams for her whole career has been 'too MANY outside interests'

And Maria Sharapova makes literally four or five times money in other ventures than she does on the court. That 25 million a year is mostly NOT made as a tennis player. And when she retires, most of those chances to make money will go with her. Seen Anna Kournikova recently?

If somebody gave Agnieszka Radwanska the choice of making an extra ten million a year doing the endorsement circuit, or going out partying with the other players, what do you think she'd pick?

Re: Do Sharapova and Williams Lack Moxy?

Serena and Sharapova lack determination and nerve? Girl no. It's the rest of the top 75 that lacks moxie.

And don't be throwing attitude around. It's not everyone else's job to deduce what your erroneous definition of moxie is. Open a dictionary before you open a thread.

Agnieszka is a beauty. I would want to marry all 3 players if I could.

There ventures off the court have nothing to do with other tennis players, is what I meant.

Why do they not chill with other coworkers?

I don't know that they don't. I know we don't see pictures of it.

I'm quite sure both of them try to do their socializing away from paparazzi. Any off-court pictures of them we see are pictures they wanted seen.

You think Caroline Wozniacki wanted this photo to be seen?



They sometimes don't get to choose, and photos get taken to make other men hornies.

Does anyone agree?
