That's not very nice subby, how do you know what she smells like?!?  Does your TV have smell-o-vision?

That was really, really bad. Up 4-0 in the TB and... Well, whatever.

She should just do her last match at the US Open and call it. She brought a lot to the sport and dominated.

The algorithm that the bot used to convert centimeters to feet/inches is incorrect.

Tennis is a younger persons game and Serena is lucky she was on top as long as she was but there comes a time where you are not as fast as you used to be no matter how hard you train. I remember years ago I was watching a documentary about tennis and they were breaking it down from when people on the way up and how long they lasted once they were on top, sometimes it is just a few years and they are gone.

For not having played anything at all on tour this year, she took it three sets and damn near won the match.

That, to me, is pretty impressive.

I looked at Harmony's record, and she plays roughly 45 tournaments a year.  I don't know if that's a lot of tennis, but it feels like a lot of tennis.

Not new either, she was so dominant physically she would often use the first week of a tournament to get herself into match fitness. One of the things that bugged me about her. Well, that, and her game is just unappealing to watch. I have the nature channel, I don't need to see the tennis equivalent of baby seals being clubbed.

I looked up Harmony Tan and found that she's actually 6'6", which apparently is average for the WTA but tall for her family.

I also found she was 5'5" and 5'10".

Serena is 5'9", so I'm going with 5'5"

Weird. I looked her up and found out that she doesn't even have a height. I wonder whose info is more current.
