    Is Swiatek finished...?

    Fair points, but Kournikova wasn't dedicated because she broke her thumb. She was dedicated because she dug in and practiced her ever-loving ass off, every single day for 8 solid years until her body collapsed. Diving for a volley is a bad idea, but it's a symptom of someone who absolutely loves...

    Would Serena have 24 with Emma's draw?

    Nope, that's sadly not what they were talking about in college.

    Would Serena have 24 with Emma's draw?

    "Somehow," Schnyder had a winning record over Hingis. Now, Schnyder tanked every other match to Kournikova and never won once. Goes without saying, Schnyder could whoop some real ass when she put her heart in it.

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    Most definitely, that's what happened. Though there was a turning point. In the early-'90s up until '98, she was clearly a little starlet and loved it. It's gotta feel conflicting when you keep getting the praise and on the other hand keep losing. Your goal shifts to what you don't have, and I'd...

    Would Serena have 24 with Emma's draw?

    Statistics without context is something they'll tell you to avoid in the most rudimentary of statistics courses. Never minding who Court played, Navratilova and Evert played nobodies for half their careers.

    She attended college in Russia.

    All these next-genners are like crabs in a bucket

    This would be a good predicament, if it were only happening in finals, and the same NextGen were consistently denying each other in finals. Ultimately, you'd still have the NextGen winning everything, and that breeds rivalries and interest in the sport.

    Admit it, Tennis is boring AF without FEDAL, no?

    We need anybody but more of those two.

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    That's an interesting point, so you're meaning that being showered with attention earlier on would lead to less self-centeredness as you get older. I haven't heard that before, but I can understand where you're coming from.

    The truth is, Novak has it all

    Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it. His volleys were inferior. We're done here, I hope. Not the most pressing conflict.

    The truth is, Novak has it all

    One doesn't preclude the other. You're looking at Edberg and McEnroe, in his old age.

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    If there's one thing I can't do is listen to that guy's music. I respect who he now is, but I have my limits. But you don't see me going Kournikova had excellent footwork or the Serena serve either. What endears you is how cordial they kept their interactions. You rarely saw Kournikova in any...

    Emma Raducanu News

    I wonder who you're trying to insult, considering Kournikova finished high school early and almost immediately attended college.

    Would Serena have 24 with Emma's draw?

    84.9% is not bad, what are you dealing. It's not even close to bad. There are possibly three players in this new era with a year of solid tour experience and results in the 80s.

    The truth is, Novak has it all

    Pete himself didn't have the best volleys of his own generation. The posters here repeat talking points, is all that is.

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    @Booger @norcal I'll have to block your parents because they don't know how to keep their accounts locked from you. My lord, you see the same childish crap every day here. It's like I stepped back into elementary school. "Stalker! Stalker!" Grow the hell up. You all are embarrassing. This could...

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    Tell me when Swiatek became a former player. Though you're right. She probably should retire. Yes, by flirting with/dating the prosecutor who eventually lost his job? You sure showed me, kid. Now do you see why those teachers you hated told you to take those research papers seriously? A bit...

    Next Gen Stars Go Back To The '90s!

    Nonsense. Vinyls are more popular than they've been in decades. They would at least recognize what a cassette is. And they weren't rolling these dumb ass skits for record players in the '90s. Get off the cheesy antics and practice beating Djokovic.

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    Stop the whining. You gave a Like to each remark against me, with no regard for this thread or what Kournikova went through. You're not in high school anymore. I don't care that you weren't "talking to me".

    Would Serena have 24 with Emma's draw?

    You're correct. As for Serena, the reason for her failures isn't so much birthing Olympia as it is raising Olympia. I'll take a good mother with slam semifinals and finals to a s***** mother with one extra Slam.

    Emma Raducanu News

    Emma is injured for stupid reasons as bad movement in her matches and possibly improper stretching, along with a general lack of fitness. Kournikova's injuries were exacerbated versions of injuries she gained off the court, resulting from her factory-like practice sessions. Regardless...

    Highest measurable performance peak in tennis

    I'm not trolling, and you know I'm not trolling. You cling to that line because you're too prideful to admit you didn't recognize the various holes in Federer's game. I don't have time to play around with you if you're afraid to be upfront.

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    Look at this dunce @Aussie Darcy kissing up to anyone and everyone who insults Kournikova, because we've heard it a trillion times that the man blindly accuses me of sexist remarks and hates seeing them, unless of course they apply to Kournikova. Kournikova can be belittled, because Jason has...

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    She retired at 21, which is even worse to tell you the truth of the matter. She was never going to hold a trophy because she was never meant to hold a trophy. She was meant to rekindle a globally waning interest in tennis, and to inspire thousands of children and teens into playing competitively...

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    Shout your ignorance a little louder. The girl won ITF tournaments much more brutish than this here joke of a "Year-End Championships," injuries and flops and withdrawals and bagels left and right. Defend this s*** I dare you to excuse it. Then once you've covered for this absolute April Fools...

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    Be honest with yourselves precise: you'll never see this cruel circus of an interview allowed in '21 or beyond. What an amazing person she was for enduring it. We should show some respect to how strong Kournikova's post-conference tactics were. Compared to this spoiled era of softball questions...

    WTA Ladies: Please be humble like Kournikova

    This'll be the last thread of mine. Now, I was thinking twice about bothering the matter, given the atmosphere and current, very serious crisis going on with WTA player Peng Shuai, but I've found out a certain Swiatek, i.e., "The Next Polish Superstar" has just opted out of press conferences...

    If these new kids could achieve Federer/Nadal levels of success, I'd be happy to have those two retire comfortably and never return again.
