Okay now it’s the women players turn as far as Christmas gifts are concerned. Santa has made the suggestions for the men but what do we give some of the biggest names in women’s tennis. So with apologies to “Love Actually” and Mariah Carey who wrote “All I Want for Christmas” we continue … I won't ask for much this Christmas I don't even wish for snow I'm just gonna keep on waiting Underneath the mistletoe Holding on to me so tight What more can I do Baby all I want for Christmas is you SERENA WILLIAMS – like Roger Federer here is a lady who has it all, from the Serena Slam to the Olympic gold medal and she loves her fashion thrown in. So what about we give her a gift to have free reign on creating her own nail polish colour. She is with O.P.I. and Gatorade so the suggestion is she put the two together to create a colour. CAROLINE WOZNIACKI – she gate crashed Rory McIlroy’s, her boyfriend, press conference and wanted to know what “special gift” he’d be giving her. Last year it was a ruby and diamond heart set like the Danish flag, but we thought a special gift would be to give her a Grand Slam title, any one of the four, so everyone gets off her case about not having won one. LI NA – this lady is a barrel of laughs when you get to know her so the gift for her is her own sit-com TV show and her co-star would be her husband Dennis, the poor pestered soul LOL. The show could be loosely based on “I Love Lucy” which starred Lucille Ball and the show would be titled “Life with Li”. VICTORIA AZARENKA – give her a louder grunt every time someone complains. Get over it people, the situation is not going to change. KIM CLIJSTERS – the lovely lady retired this year and we miss her personality so we are asking Kimmie if she can provide the gift to everyone and bottle her personality for the future of women’s tennis, or maybe even think of coming back. MARIA SHARAPOVA – she recently lost out on her engagement and we are all sorry for that so she should get a diamond factory and she can engage herself at any time with sparkles. No longer would she need to breakfast at Tiffany’s. SARA ERRANI – the gift for this spritely Italian would be high heeled shoes so that her opponents can see her from the other side of the court and it would help her with playing volleys. MARTINA NAVRATILOVA – the gift for the all-time legend is a part in the glorious TV series “Downton Abbey” alongside the likes of Dame Maggie Smith and Shirley Maclaine who, like Martina, are two outspoken women in the show. The series has been coming through the age when women have been starting to get a voice. Martina would be perfect demanding the vote. MARIA KIRILENKO – the very lovely Russian has a passion for reading many of the classics and listening to classical music so let’s take her out of the comfort zone and give her the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy along with Eminem CD’s to listen to while reading. MARY CARILLO – ah lovely Mary, funny, insightful and certainly one of the best tennis TV commentators in the world. She needs her own show and for a long time I have had the idea to do a tennis show based on James Lipton’s fabulous program The Actor’s Studio. So if I were to be producing it, my gift to Mary would be to host the program interviewing players in front of students at tennis academy’s in different places. Okay so have you got any thoughts? Well let us know.
