Drucker: Without Serena, WTA isn't the same

There are 8 comments on the ESPN story from Mar 9, 2011, titled Drucker: Without Serena, WTA isn't the same. In it, ESPN reports that:

Serena Williams has not played a WTA match since Wimbledon last year. But after Williams' announcement that her absence from tennis is the result of something even more troubling than the foot injury that's kept her out since Wimbledon, it's a good time for a deeper look at what's lacking in a tournament when she's not on the grounds.

Joe Drucker, I beg to disagree with you. I agree that Serena is an excellent, hard fighting and
electrifying tennis pro but the tournaments are still exciting and thrilling without her presence.
(Also there is one less grunter to listen to.) Kim is a sight to behold when scampering around the court,minus the grunts;Sam Stosur's serve is a delight to watch,without grunting; Jelena Jankovich'sp)gruntless hitting down the line is amazing. I could go on and on as there are
many others that bring so much to tennis.

Do you really hear yourself. One person makes or breaks the sport of tennis.

What about the hundreds of women that are on the circuit every week trying to win a tournament Sounds like you would be happy to just see Serena even without an opponent!

Give the other gals a chance and maybe you can still enjoy the game!

I'm, glad that we don't have more tennis players like Serena.She is a disgrace to the WTA.She has an ugly mouth,,and thinks that she rules the roost.
We need more Sharapova's.They are ladies.

Some people can't just accept the fact that The william sister are the best two sisters that have ever played the game. There is no coach too in the histtory of the wta game who has brought up two players to be both the number 1 players and reached the finals of all grams slams and one winning all four of them. Name one. Remember too that the man made the prediction and it all came to be true. Now you show me one white man, parent or one white coach who has ever come close this feat. He and his daughters don't need to be in the tennis hall of fame but in the tennis gods of fame. Compared to the the number of tournaments played per year and the number of wins Serena is arguably the best player of all timne. Do the math if you know some. Steffi graf, martina and Chrs played like on billion tournament to win 12 ground slams. White people are happy that the Williams sisters are out or hurt so their little white pushers can win too. You know it and that's a fact. You critize the williams sisters and yet you can't admit that every white girl is out there compying their style of play since they introduce power and speed tennis into the women's game. You go on insulting as much as you like but it doesn't change the fact that more people watch tennis and the rating get higher when the williams sisters play. I never heard you guys critized the drug head jenifer capriati and many others like who have been suspended for drugs use which is worse than serena's cursing who is constantly cheated. The Hawkeye was introduce because of the number of time Serena was robbed rememger? It tells me you're nothing but jealous hypocrites and to hell with you all. Without the williams sisters the WTA is just an all- white only nonsense. Take that.

Dogon_brains, You hit them with those facts. Some people at one point were trying to push the druggy Capriati as the best thing since slice bread even though they knew she was a thief, a druggist and a juicer. Much more worse that Serena's cursing mouth. I wonder where she is now.

Dogon, you are right, Many white players and white people are praying for serena to retire so white players can have some opportunity: Hypocrites. Mr Drucker is some one who is not ashame to tell the truth unlike many white trash who on this planet.
