Conchita you should play our Fantasy tennis game that we're hoping to set up, I think you'd really get into it. I've tried to get Herc to do it but think he's scared that I'll beat him too often  :rofl_2: If your interested Conchita have a look at the thread at the top of the page.

I will play it!
so mighty Hercules is scared that you will beat him too often! :)
can not believe it, he is the King of Clay! :)

Good stuff Conchita!
Ah Herc may be the King of Clay but the humiliation would be too much for him when we meet on hardcourts, grass courts and indoor courts haha  :)~

dream on. i have never lost on clay. cant play because of rotator cuff misfortunes now but can easily kick ass if i have to. i will just bring a large bottle of aspirin for pain.

i am not playing on anything except clay. grass is for cows.

Santana before winning Wimbledon he was quoted as saying "The grass is just for cows.", Kodes also said it and he won in 1973. :)

too funny. i didnt know about that. i know lendl and agassi have made negative remarks about grass in the past.

No Herc grass is where it all began and the place to be now whereas clay is just for those who want to get all dirty and mainly just keep the ball in play and play safe  :)~

i think chris taylor is right conchita. you will probably rule in that fantasy game.

i only play when i have a nearly 100% probability of domination. :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical:

Nah Herc conchita won't be ruling in the fantasy tennis lol, well that's my hope for myself anyway :) you should play herc and put that 100% domination right on the line.

Haha clay is definitely his surface but put him on the traditional grass court or the commonly used hardcourts and he's worse than a fish out of water  :rofl_2:

additionally, i think, as i suggested before, this thread can serve double duty by keeping the women`s tennis in spotlight. it is about to make a monster comeback in 2008.

Here's a list of all Maria's sponsors which make it easy to realsie just why Maria is the highest paid sportswoman in the world, and highest paid tennis player as well:
Maria's sponsors are Nike, Prince, Canon, Colgate, Gatorade, Landrover (now an Ambassador for them), Parlux, Samantha Thavasa, Tag Heuer, Tropicana and Motorola. So an impressive list which makes you realise how easy Maria can pull in the millions now   :)

That's a lot of pressure on her too. Almost like a performance based salary.
She can handle it however and has in the past.
Definitely adds to her motivation also.

yeah an awful lot of presure Swish, because if the performances aren't there then the sposors dont want to know, however, Maria also knows that if she does well they'll love to keep her and the millions will continue to come in for her.
