How to make the loss of your fave a little more easy to stomach.......

OK, so I was thinking, what would make the loss of my fave players a little easier to take....well, for y'all who love top players, when they come into a close match (like Lindsay is against Venus) Bet all your Vcash on the person you dont wana win, then, if your fave wins you'll be happy and like....fuck this vcash shit, it was a load of bollocks.... but, if they lose, Vcash The loss will be loads better coz you'll have made some money



(This does not apply to fans of Kim C)

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

um...nope. I've thought about this before but then I see it this way - If I saw a fan of Venus betting against her, I would consider them a traitor and not a real fan. You can't soften the blow of a loss by betting against your fav, just doesn't feel right. That is how I feel about it anyway.

It's got nothing to do with being real fans or not, its just a method of making the potential loss less devastating.

i think that's bullshit. making money has nothing to do with being a real fan.

Just because you're a real fan doesn't mean you need to think your fave will win every match she plays. I don't think it makes you a traitor to bet or even predict against her - but in many cases it makes you deluded if you bet or predict for her.

After the initial sadness dissipates, you take refuge in the arms of your spouse and top it off with hot, vigorous lovemaking then sleep will take care of the rest.

Betting on your fav's opp is useful

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

A glass of red wine usually makes the trick!

When your fave looses - just think of all the times they have won and the types of players they have beat. Every player is going to loose once in a while - that's just tennis!

In a grand slam there are 127 losers and only 1 winner - but as some philosopher said "Its the taking part and not the winning"!

If your favourite loses then shun the rest of the tournament.

If your favorite loses, just come in to WTAWorld and criticize her opponent and give no credit whatsoever to her opponent.
