IMO, I think she can. But it will be tough for her. For some reason i see a Capriati/V.Williams final, i'm hoping for one though. But i want Jennifer to win of course..maybe get back at Venus for once ...but i think she will have a lot of close matches when she gets there. Oh well, guess we'll have to wait and see...
Good Luck in 2003!!
"I just made the decision that it's now or never..Just, you gotta have this positive self-image of yourself and otherwise, you know, your not gonna survive this life, I mean, you're gonna go through living depressed and sad and not being able to look at yourself and always degrating yourself..You know the most important thing is, is that to love yourself, you know, walk around with your head high and not take anything from anybody!..There's no other way than to just try to be happy, to try to smile, 'cause you know it's just..your wasting time if you're not!"
Of course she can defend her title. Defending her title in Oz this year must have given her that added boost of confidence to defend in Paris. Plus I think it will take a lot of the pressure to defend off her. She has already done it once and has nothing to prove.
