Who is serena dating in season 6
Women’s tennis does matter and Wimbledon now gives out equal prize-money to men and women!In the early 1990s, Dutch tennis star, Richard Krajicek put his foot in his mouth when he said that 80 percent of women’s tennis players were ‘fat, lazy pigs’.Evert, who played Martina in 14 Grand Slam finals and in more than 80 matches, says, “There is no rivalry at the moment.Martina and I were like night and day; it transcended tennis.” The legendary player opines that great rivalries, in individual sport, bring in more people, more fans and more interest.This isn’t necessarily true of team games like cricket and football.A Virat Kohli versus Steve Smith or a Messi versus Ronaldo match-up isn’t as intensive or high-stakes as a Roger Federer versus Rafael Nadal battle. In one tense Borg-Mc Enroe match, the latter was throwing tantrums after every point, when the Swede called him to the net, hugged him and said, “Relax, John! Let’s enjoy it.” That was respect for each other’s game too.The lop-sided record, perhaps, reveals a ‘mental block’ on the part of Sharapova, which she has written about in a recently released book — Sharapova, mind you, is no ordinary player. 1 and has won five grand slam singles titles; the French Open twice and the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, once each.
Then came the Borg-Mc Enroe and the Mc Enroe-Connors match-ups, followed by the Stefan Edberg-Boris Becker and Mats Wilander-Ivan Lendl encounters.” To this, Navratilova retorted, laughing, “I’d like to punch his lights out!” Humour apart, women’s tennis has, over the years, ridden on the back of some great rivalries: Margaret Court versus Billie Jean King, Chris Evert versus Navratilova and Steffi Graf versus Monica Seles.The Russian, who moved to the United States when she was seven, states in her book that she was never enamoured or overawed by the Williams sisters.She says she even refused to stand, like the others, when Serena entered the 2002 Wimbledon Champions Ball.
