You will be missed, Esther. You're a true sporting legend.
@49 Larry-the-lamb You are an idiot.
Classy woman and a legendary tennis champion! Somehow I expected her to continue for a little bit longer and go for the 500 consecutive wins but in the end that's just a number. When it's time it's time.
@43 As previously stated, someone saying someone's achievements are good but at the same time throw in some objectivity are not WUMs. A difference of opinion is still allowed in this country to my knowledge.
All this user's posts have been removed. Why?
At 44 peter.It would prove nothing - but give the rest of us great pleasure to see you being whooped!
43. DutchjimboWhat would that prove? I don't see how the tennis ability of one of the contributors to this discussion has anything to do with the notability of Vergeer's achievements.
I suggest to all the WUMs who try to belittle Vergeer's achievements should try playing tennis against her.My money would be on another 6-0 6-0 Vergeer victory....
Agree with 40. 32 you're just completely wrong. What gives tennis, or any sport a better of meaning of significance than another job? You're meaning of mediocre then, i presume is two fold. 1. You don't get paid a lot? 2. It doesn't get sports coverage. By doing that you are de-valuing charity and aid work as well as any person who has ever tried to support a family. Disgusting thing to say.
A brilliant player with, for a female tennis player I'd say she has one of the best 10 service motions of all time. She has an amazing service action which enables her to dominate her service games against other wheelchair athletes.Hope she works in disabled tennis coaching in future and not just in the Netherlands.
