You're a veritable treasure to this site and tennis humor, can't wait for the YEC edition and whatever you have for 2014.

She was going to be the star of the Aussie Open episode next year but then she retired. It was going to show her going through her whole routine - jumping up and down, running on the spot, practice swings - and taking out scores of Australian insects as she did so. The plan was to do it from a bug's point of view, with Marion cast as the terror of their existence.

In the end I shortened it to a single panel and did it as a tribute when she hung up her racquet:

I have something planned for the off season which will feature a bunch of former players but Marion won't be among them I'm afraid.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room

I will miss Marion's running in place while swatting flies with her racket. It was as mesmerizing as it was annoying.

I'd love to do Hingis. The stuff I've got planned for the off season doesn't include her at the moment but I might be able to work her into it.

There will be some very familiar faces from the last 15 years though.

No more clues.

I think they'd be more likely to edit the content, to conform to their unique standards of blandness.

Heaven forbid that the WTA should ever admit that its players are anything less than perfect angels at all times

I feel like there needs to be a Hingis appearance in one of these now Bobito

There almost certainly will be before too long but it won't involve her beating up her ex if that's what you are suggesting. I tend to steer clear of players' private lives. I decided that around Wimbledon time when Serena and Maria had their little spat.

Hingis was actually slated to appear before the US Open. It was an on court coaching gag with her and Pavlyuchenkova. But then she came out of retirement and was presumably no longer coaching Pavs. With quite a bit of rewriting, that cartoon turned into the Li Na & Carlos Rodriguez one.

As I mentioned before, I have something planned for the off season that will feature a few big names of the last 15 years and I'd like to include Hingis in there somewhere. So I'm working on it.

It would be a waste if I didn't feature her. I think you'll agree that I draw a pretty good Hingis
