He's the same turkey who said that Maria is the presence that women's tennis has been waiting for. Then today he says that Maria beat Serena when Serena was playing as well as she ever has.
He must be a fool.

Fortunately Mary Carillo cut that crap short and basically said that Serena has a lot of work to do. Anyone who knows Serena's game knows that she is nowhere NEAR playing as well as she has or can.

Yeah, I heard him too. I think his name is Jimmy Roberts or something. He's an idiot for saying that. Carillo almost swallowed her mike when he said that. She knew he was way off, but she didn't embarrass him on the air.

That's one of the problems with the major networks. The seem to dig up these folks who don't know their butts from a hole in the ground when it comes to tennis. I'd have preferred Johnny Mac and Mary to this know nothing.:(

His name is Jimmy Roberts and while I didn't hear him say that, I think he is expressing a sentiment that most in the sprots world feel. For some reason, they were bothered most by the Williams sisters being on top of tennis world for the time they were (spring 2000-early summer 2003) and need an attractive blond to get intersted in tennis again.:rolleyes:

I say what I think and I don't care who is bothered by it.

Just wait until the Accura Classic starts (which is supposedly Maria's next tournament). There will be more media attention and more men who don't know shit about teenis in the stands.

I agree with that, but so far, of the top players she has played and beaten, she beat a person who coulm't more to save her life in a three setter (Lindsay) and a person who was playing her best, was off the tour for eight month and is only playing her sixth tournamen this year. It will be intersting to see if she can beat a Justine, Amelie, Jennifer or even a Venus (who I expect to get back to the top ten by the USO).

Maria sharapova WILL be a big deal for tennis. A 'glam' slam champion. she will generate outside interest. I guess that was the point, a "new" player with the potential star quality to attract interest from outside of regular fans


FYI the term 'gomer". Its a cynical medical phrase form a book called the house of god its an acronym for "Get Out of My Emergency Room". Its aplied unkindly to the old, confused, ill and generally hard to deal with.

Actually, my dear Arcus, if you will notice I used the term "goomer", not "gomer".

Those who are fans of The Beverly Hillbillies (apparently you are not) will recognize this term as one that granny used for someone who just fell off of the turnip truck. Example: Jed. who's this goomer? :lol:

LizChris, your stupidity and racism never fail to amaze me. Davenport played the match of her career post comeback, and Maria played the best I have ever seen her play to win that match. Serena had just beaten Amelie, only to be destroyed by a SUB-PAR Sharapova in the finals. But Maria is just another fluke, huh? It is only because she is white that you say this. If she were black, we would have a different story from you.

YOUR stupdity and bigotry doesn't fail to amaze me, mainly because I know you are both stupid and a bigot (for those who don't know, this asshole said that Venus was number 10 in the championhsips race, even though the projected rankings have her at eight and I had to post it for him/her/it to see). Maria even admitted that the rain delays saved her because she said that Lindsay was playing so well that if not for the rain delays to retool her game, she might have lost.

I never said Maria was subpar; I said in another thread that Serena was outplayed by her, but let's get real about another thing; the absence of Justine and Kim (moreso Justine) was a major factor in her getting to the final (even the commentators admitted this, even thoguh they didn't want to). We don't know if Maria is a fluke or not, though this is her first non-Tier III titles, but we will see how she does in her next tournamet, which is supposed to be the Accura Classic, especially if most of the top players, who can play on the hardcourts as well or better than her, show up.

Oh, and 6-1, 6-4 isn't being destroyed, beating someone 6-1, 6-1 is. Ask Jennifer. Another thing, I never expected Serena, who won her first Slam at 17 and is black, to ever win any clay court titles or to win Wimbleon and I thought her Slam win was a fluke. I was proven wrong, although it took three years to do so.

As I said in the other post, check yourself before you wreck yourself becuase hos like you are bad for my heath:fiery: .
