Henin loses it's because she's 'small' in stature?
Venus loses it's because she was injured?
Monica loses it's because she's fat?
Serena loses it's because Venus withdraws?
Martina loses it's because she never beats the 'big babes'?
I thought that when you lose a match, that means the player that beat you was at least marginally better than you on that particular moment in time? Why do some people never think that perhaps a netcord at break point, or a double fault on match point, or an ace or service winner on game point may have just made the difference. Why is it always categorized in some people's minds that if a certain playter loses that it's unequivocably and undeniably because she's '_______'. Tennis is not about adjectives, folks. Wake up and actually pay attention to the subject that you think you are so informed about.
Ennis and Jack found something most people don't ever find in this life...true love, the deepest, purest, most beautiful thing in the universes. Ennis and Jack have TRUE LOVE. They are SOULMATES. They have a love so deep, so pure, so strong, that it transcends everything, it's eternal.
Because fans can`t accept that their fav lost so they make excuses
In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
Good post, freedesigner. There is a difference between looking for reasons for a loss/win and making excuses IMHO. Otherwise we should all accept everything as a fait accompli and not have questioning minds.
Interesting thread. I think we're all guilty of making up excuses rather than accepting they were beaten by the better player, I know I am!
I hear Pam blames her doubles loss last year on the over-excitement of her fans distracting her confidence...

If I could just go back... if I could rub everything out... starting with myself.
"Her enduring legacy is far more emotional, instead of statistical..."
"To watch Arantxa Sanchez Vicario play tennis was to rediscover the reason why we fell in love with the game in the first place."
Originally posted by the_ancyent_marinere To try and avoid injuries is a major part of the game. So, I don´t consider withdrawals, walkovers etcetera as anything else than losing the match, or the opponent winning it.
I think that way too. The WTA doesn't though...when it comes to their win streak records.
The "journalists" do it too (come up with those "reasons")...which annoys me even more. Sometimes you get the feeling they didn't see the match.
Like when they almost always say that a Big Babe "overpowered" her opponent and that's why she won. When you watch some of those matches you could see the smaller player countering and holding their own and often dictating play and it's small little things that determined the outcome.
Venus only loses because she is injured. We won't mention the infamous bead incident in the Aussie semi' against LD or the bad line call "YOU KNOW IT WAS OUT, SHE KNEW IT WAS OUT, EVERYBODY KNEW IT WAS OUT!!!!!" incident at Wimbledon against Jana or the 6-1,6-1 debacle against Hingis last year at the Aussie Open semi last year and the . . . .yada, yada, yada. . . .
Unfortunately some people are too fanatical over their favorites that they have to make up excuses when they lose, even if the players themselves don't! I just don't see why people can't just enjoy the tennis. Let the players make the excuses instead.
