Sharapova's Cockiness

Sharapova's cockiness has always been a topic of discussion on tennis boards. As long as Sharapova doesn't start doing a Mike Tyson impersonation when she's trash-talking, I'm all for her brand of cockiness. I wish the players would do it more as long as no one is belittled or threats are made to their family (eg. Eating their children. ).

Personally, I think cockiness and trash-talking can both be linked to either having great confidence or great insecurity. Cockiness due to confidence can lead to complacency. Cockiness due to insecurity can lead to undue pressure. That's just my take on things.

you fail at spinoff threads

Your troll quality has been poor lately. I suggest you take a break and then come back strong.

I am simply responding to your crackhead post. You see sharapova is just as cocky as Serena. Enjoy.


I also find it funny that you say my post is not strong and yet you come into the thread to post.

You = Shitslice

Its just to point out that Sharapova is just as cocky as Serena. So as Martina. So is Jennifer.

Now if you have a problem with cocky then I guess you have a problem with Sharapova.

Personally I dont mind that she's cocky. Its one of the few traits I like about her.

Maybe then you should have picked someone else besides Maria. You DO realize that Serena And Maria are the most debated players here right?

I like cocky players too, butI think that this thread isn't gonna do anything besides piss people off and you're just adding fuel to the fire.

You know this thread will be deleted, even though the one about Serena's won't.

That would probably be because this one is just a spin off of that original one which was created just to shift some criticism from Serena onto Maria and bring Maria fans into another arguement about Serena which they are yet to be involved in (aside from a post from Julia)

Whether a spin off or not, the original thread was a thread created to criticize a player, so it's the same principal. If Serena fans can take it, so can Sharapova fans. Sharapova nor her fans are absolved from criticism. If one thread gets deleted, then they both should.

Uhhh, this is not the Serena thread. But, if you're talking about other threads, it's probably because some Maria fan is criticising Serena. It's called tit for tat. If you say something bad about my fav, I'll say something bad about yours. That's how it works on this board. Sad, but it's true. It's not just Maria that gets brought up all of the time either. I'd say the word Williams' is brought up in a thread they have nothing do with 9 times out of 10 by people who feel the need to bash them going and coming.
