Hi everyone, long time no see.
It's been a while since I left the tennis scene. I have been having a perfectly normal life since.
I just figured it's a high time I had some time with my fans.
You can ask me anything you want to!!

Well.. I might... I'm not going to Paris this year as a commentator. I won't be even doing any commentating work for RG. Honestly I was sacked after the last broadcast that included my commentating got a lot negative responses from the viewers.
As for your question, I'm not too interested. But if she does play, I wish her very best of course.
No, that rain delay... I don't think that affected the match as much as a lot of people made it out. I still could have lost as possibly as I could have won. Didn't you see me walk off the course? I don't think you have ever seen or will ever see anyone as gracious a loser as me. I don't like talk about "what if" things too much but in all my honestly, it wasn't nice of Steffi to ask the chair umpire to suspend the match. It wasn't bloody dark at all. We still could have carried on. I felt cheated and had that match snatched. I had always thought she was the most gracious and fair champion....but since then, I gotta shake my bloody head. I still have some time to reflect on the match and can't help shaking my head wondering why she acted the way she did... I must say I felt like she was a coward. Oh well... I still respect her... but to be honest I hardly knew or know her as our communication was always sloppy due to the fuckin language barrier.

No she wasn't distracted in the slightest by that guy's proposing. It was me who stepped it up and dominated her since. She didn't play any worse than before the screeming as far as I could tell. I still think it was her tactic that she wanted to start the final set fresh with no memntum on either side. Given I was a fuckin slow starter, that worked perfectly well.

I noticed she was coughing a lot. But either way, I didn't think it was too fair...
by the way I'm already sick of talking about that match.. there's no end to it. I'd rather talk about something other than tennis.

What do you think of Jennifer Capriati?
I don't know her well. I have nothing against her. It was great to see her come back the way she did. She started her professional career so young and dropped out. That made me wonder how great a career she would have had if she had delayed her debut by a few years. She's one of the most talented girls I've ever seen. When I first saw her, I was like "What? Is she only 13?". She was big enough to look like 18 then and hitting the ball so hard. I was barely in the top 100 and she passed me by so fast and easily. At the end, it was a pity that we couldn't face off in our respective primes. I think my game would have matched up with hers well.. you would have seen a lot of fast rallies if not too long.

Oh. Hello. Kimiko.
In the 1995 USO when you completely unfairly beat me, is it really true that you were totally unaware that your lob on the penultimate point of the match was out by 6 WHOLE INCHES? :fiery:

It's very sad when people are bitter and dwell on the past like that, isn't it. ;)

Kimiko - I remember you playing Gigi fernandez at Wimbledon (and got truly smacked) and because you were so angry with her supporters after the match you smacked a ball at them. True or False.
