I suggest we all, um, do Martina type things until she comes back, try and keep yourself active, withdrawal symptoms are a bad thing.

It's going to be alright, everything's fine <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Aloha Jomar,

I am way past my homework era, all I do now is enjoying myself and try to sleep as much as I possibly can. I would like to quote Mr David Bowie here; 'If the homework brings you down then we'll throw it on the fire and take the car downtown' From the song Cooks taken from that wonderfull album Hunky Dory.

Look where David ended up, its a good advice and its free.

Cheerio

McEnroe: Don't Write Hingis Off

<br />Martina Hingis By Richard Pagliaro 10/22/2001

A hobbled Martina Hingis will try to climb back to the top of tennis after she rehabs her right ankle. Hingis, who tore ligaments in her ankle during the semifinals of the Porsche Grand Prix two weeks ago, will have her ankle brace removed this week and should be sidelined for eight weeks. John McEnroe believes the future health of Hingis' game depends on improving her soft serve.

In an interview with the media, McEnroe praised Hingis as a winner but criticized her serve as a subpar shot. Though Hingis has not won tournament since February and hasn't captured a Grand Slam championship since the 1999 Australian Open, McEnroe believes the Swiss star is capable of winning another major. "Anyone who has already won five Slams and is only 21 certainly has the chance (to win again)," McEnroe said. "You can't count her out."

Identifying Hingis' shallow serve as her greatest weakness, McEnroe said the former No. 1 should spend most of her practice time working on improving her serve if she's serious about regaining the No. 1 ranking she held for 209 weeks.

"Her serve is abysmal right now," McEnroe said. "I don't think she works on her serve at all. It looks like someone who just starts a point. There's no attempt to actually gain an edge, it seems like, with her serve. It's easy for me to say watching from above, but certainly that (the serve) would be where I'd start (to improve her game)."

Ho Humm,

While Martina is recouperating from her injury, I think my attention will drift towards figure skating now. Thank God it's an Olympic season. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

<br />As for John McEnroe, I always felt he admired Martina's finesse game and court strategy, but his comments regarding her serve are old hat. Everyone and their grandmother knows Martina has to improve her serve. If she has the will and desire it can be accomplished. <img src="cool.gif" border="0">
