If you were Santa Clause what would be your gift to some of the WTA players who would you want to give some presents.

Of course we all want them to be healthy all year, but aside from that plsss...

Lindsay: I will give her more mental strenght and more belief in her self.

Martina: I will give her more time for herself and her life and and security of what she already had and accomplished. And of course I will give her better serve.

Kim&Justine: I will give her more confidence and experience.

Seles: I will give her more endurance.

Kournikova: I will give her more time to concentrate in Tennis.

Williams: I will give them more time to play tournaments.

To make it more challenging, I'll give each player one gift. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Venus: more widespread acceptance

Lindsay: more self-confidence

Martina: a more aggressive attitude

Serena: the ability to see big sis as just another opponent

Kim: more confidence against the top players

Chanda: a coach with better tactical knowledge

Justine: more mental toughness in the tight stages of big matches, so she won't back off in the crunch

Monica: a bit more speed afoot

Jelena: a draw without having to face Lindsay

Anna: a title of some significance, won over a field of top players

Elena: the abilty to come forward as well as she moves laterally

Maggie: an indoor slam to play in

Sandrine: a breakthrough win over a top player at a slam

Aina: a breakthrough into the top 100, so I can hear the announcers tackle her surname (okay, this one is for my sadistic side)

Conchita: more consistent motivation

Arantxa: a few years off of her age

Amanda: 6 inches

Iva: a solid season

Jennifer: peace of mind on court, so she won't behave in a way that draws criticism

Tia Clara: appointed official clothing designer for WTA Tour

I've missed a few. I'll have to add them later.

Here goes nothing:

1)Serena- confidence, desire, and mental toughness<br />2)Venus- new, better working wrists and knees. Lots of love from tennis fans. And a kiss on the lips.<br />3)Lindsay- a new knee<br />4)Jen Cap- a kick in the mouth, really hard

[email protected] if you would give Jen a kick in the mouth, she might look better; so that's a nice present there (to all jenfans: just kidding, just kidding, please don't hate me!)

I would give

-more experience to Kim<br />-a better serve and more confidence to Justine <br />-a new knee to Lindsay<br />-Lindsay's knee to Venus (to all williamsfans: just kidding, just kidding, please don't hate me!)

I would give them all (Venus included) a healthy and injurie-free year.

A grand slam for Coetzer <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

A Wimbledon for Seles (though any grand slam would be a good stocking stuffer) <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

A US Open for Capriati <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

<br />A nice French surprise for an underdog. Hingis, Pierce, Davenport, or one of the Spanish vets <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Why would you give her that. I think she won't be happy with that, she has already the best one.
