    Gee, I guess Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King are lucky they played when TALENT was important.

    It's almost like women athletes are treated like women actors or women musicians or women professionals or...

    What a can of worms this is. Women's tennis is just collapsing - maybe they'll put them in bikinis to play. It's just like the ball girls being models in Spain during their open. Totally insulting.

    I don't watch women's tennis anymore anyway, the men play a more interesting game. Not sexism, just my opinion.

    When the Williams sister retire the women's game will be so boring.

    The current players all have similiar game plans and have become too obsessed with their image. I miss watching the likes of Graf, Henin

    Thankfully we still have men's tennis to watch - at least the guys have some talent.
