The identity of the suspect, described by authorities as mentally disturbed, was still unclear, a day after he gave himself up to German police and released all 55 people aboard the plane.

The man is accused of commandeering a Cairo-bound Boeing 737-500 at knife- point Tuesday night, shortly after takeoff from Turkey, and demanding to be flown to Germany.

I know that,but i can't like her even she's from my country.

She had many controversies in her little career,there were may be really her mistakes or others misunderstandings.
She recently got married a Pakistan player.He divorced his 1st wife because he wanted to marry Sania. Offcourse they had lived seperately for a long time,and there wasn't no connection of Sania ,but he gave divorce because of Sania.This is a reason for why many people stop liking her and another reason is he is from Pakistan(you know India-Pak wars). and most of people turned her fans because of her beauty,fashions and not for her game.

To speak against anyone is not applicable to me,but i clearly tell you that i'm not a supporter of her and only hope she should win if she's on court and i hope this only as an indian.

thanks for the link, Seleção82.

@djul14,
I knew that why you do not uploading videos on youtube.i mean it takes lot of time to finish the process.

Although,i request you that please try to upload 1988(it's already on youtube,but quality is poor) and 1989 wimbledon finals only if you have good quality.

It's only a request,not an order.(

where is Irma,we miss her a lot.

Isn't it already on youtube ?
Last time I uploaded a whole match, it was really really too long, and I have a laptop at home, i can't let it plugged all day long while I am at work.


@Seleçao, yes Mirza is a big fan of Steffi, I remember reading a little news, in which she said she met her in Vegas in a parking while she (Mirza) was leaving after a training(with the other adidas pros there), she said she was so impressed that she only managed to mumble some words
Mirza is not the only one, a lot of young players are Steffi fans, sometimes on the WTA website in the section "getting to know" they ask young players about their favs.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I watched the last few games and the tie-break of this match back then, and I was so pleased that Steffi controlled her nerves and lack of confidence to close it. And more so when she won the whole event and proved what a trememdous champion she was against the new generation, who were the first to act as if the previous generations could not hit a ball or played feathers as shots. Happy Graf hit them on their face!
