If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

Speaking of woman playing, Hingis is playing Venus Williams at the moment.  And Venus is making alot of noise as usual.  Rolling Eyes

Again two sides of the same coin, Chris.
Its which way you want to take it. More competition for the top spot means more excitement.
Two things:

1) As unfortunate as it is, the appeal in the women's game stems largely in beauty, not ability.  More people are familiar with Sharapova and Hantuchova than they are Mauresmo and Petrova.  There's a degree of it in the men's game too, but not nearly to the extent that it features in the women's game.

2) Don't call me Chris, you don't know me, and not many people on this message board do either.  I don't call you Tim or whatever your name is.

I watched the match and I can't believe Venus came back AND she had cramp in BOTH legs.  Maybe she should have a wee word with Andy  Wink

My replies:

1) Sad truth, but I cant do much about it. Its very cruel actually.

2) I hate calling you 'TCK' but if you want it that way, Amen. My name is Arka by the way, although I wont mind it if you call me Tim. wink
