Interesting and entertaining reports, Gerhard. You guys are certainly passionate tennis fans. And it's nice that Jelena is so good to you. But you guys really should give Elena Bovina credit for beating Jelena. Jelena is the better tennis player because she has had a better career than Bovina has had to this point. But Bovina knows how to play Dokic and has beaten Dokic more than once so it's not a fluke.

What did you think of Tatiana Golovin's game?

Gerhard, the insulting descriptions of players are just "Typical Tennisrulz" ala slice calling Lisa "Fatty Raymond" etc. The fact that you're the kind of fucking idiot who's so easily fooled by Rainer Hofmann is worse.

well. we did not say nothing bad about Bovina, did we?
like Bovina did nothing special to beat Jelena that day...
believe me, it would have been easier for us, if Bovina would have played like hell to beat Jelena. So we would have know a reason for that result....
but Bovina just played her usual game......

its pretty similar to Safinas game. not much entertaining......
also Groenefeld is one of these kind of players: perfectly fit. perfectly trained. perfect strategy. but no creativity on court.
i mean, they still show emotions, but they have that game plan and stick to it, whatever happens... no stupid ideas. no useless net attacks. no surprises.

for former Steffi Graf fans definately great to watch

For Jelena Dokic fans:

I like more players who surprise their opponents and fans with nearly every shot they do... and sometimes even surprise themselfes

I don't think that Dokic has much more variety or 'creative spirit' than Safina.

ALG has a coach that sucks in Rafael font du Mora (builder of a player without a backhand named Meghann Shaughnessy).

Sister Safina has One Of the elite in "Hu-Bear" Choudury, and in Paris Pasted Peppermint Pupil he coached in '01-02.

Gerhard, no you didn't say anything bad about Bovina. And women's tennis isn't very creative and artistic these days. The power game is here to stay. And that's unfortunate because power tennis can be boring.

Once a Steffi fan always a Steffi fan! You obviously know little about her game outside the fact that she probably spanked your favs. ass more times then not.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

hey, i only said that people who liked Steffi Grafs game will probably find it more entertaining to watch Safina, Golovin or Groenefeld as others!!!!!!

whats wrong with that?

i gave no statement if anyones game is better or worse as others. i just compared the styles.

there is a russian girl named Maria Arkhipova who plays very much like Jelena Dokic. Maria is 600something in the world. Of course you cant compare their tennis, but their styles are pretty similar....

and Jelena never played Steffi


-----------


to katrientje: if we would just like to see girls we would have gone to the moulin rouge and not to the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium.

Of course we like tennis in the first place

You do call the rather trim Lisa Lisa that, correct?

And I know enough about Hofmann (including his "acting skills") to know from what Gerhard wrote that (like any # Of Others) he got conned by Rainer.

Lastly, I GET fucked; you ARE fucked.

Rainer likes Jelena-Dokic.com! (And Patty likes this website, too!) Whenever he sees one of us, who makes the site, he says hello to us.... Rainer is a computer-freak himself, and he knows how much work it takes to create a good website and update it almost every day.

He appreciates all people who support tennis in those little ways!

I give a f**k if its "acting skills" or not. if someone stops bye and says hello to me when he sees me, i call that friendly!!!!!!!!
