does anyone know how this usage of "tree" came about?
to credit venus, she did refuse to blame her loss on her ankle/leg/whatever ... she just blamed it on her play.
i certainly don't watch as much tennis as you guys, but i think it's pretty harsh to call someone a hooker based on her appearance. i don't like richard williams either, but personally i have no problem with the sisters' press conferences. call it arrogance, or call it the confidence of champions. sure, it's PC nowadays to give "credit" to your opponent, but if serena truly believes that no one can really beat her, then more power to her. maybe as she ages she'll learn that there are reasons people boo her, and she'll soften up.
thank you susan! pride and prejudice
is actually my favorite
