Q. Marcelo, in the last press conference Capriati said that your remarks on women's tennis were stupid and ridiculous; what do you think of that?
Pretty funny about Venus vs Karsten Braasch! ROTFLMAOQ. Capriati said your comments on women's tennis and the lack of depth in women's tennis were stupid and ridiculous?
A. I'm not going to start arguing about what anybody thinks, I just said what I thought about it and in the locker room everybody was agree. Like, everybody was talking that thing that you see a match and everybody is winning 6-0, 6-1. Coetzer is 12th in the world and she lose 6-0, 6-0 in 20 minutes. It is ridiculous what is going on in women's tennis, and I think everybody agree. But I'm not going to start arguing with every girl that says that it's not true, it's ridiculous. Everybody thinks different, and that was my thought and I mean it, and good for her if she doesn't think like that.
Q. If Hingis wanted to be on court with you to show that you are wrong, do you want to play her one set or not?
A. I think they are not understanding what I said. I'm not saying that the girls are better - that guys are better than girls and all that, I said I think until quarters, girls win too easy. I'm not saying that if a guy beat a girl - I think they are understanding wrong what I said. Just tell Williams to tell Karsten Braasch he can play her again, like she did like three years ago. He is playing a little bit better now, so she's going to have a little trouble now - maybe 6-0 now.
