One Thing I Hate About the Clay…

Is the umpire coming down from the chair basically once every game. It’s quite frustrating, I like having a doubt about the call instead of having the umpire come down, halting the game and having to check the mark almost every point.

When you're in the SF of a grand slam, you're going to want to win every point you can.

Did I say "One Thing I Hate About the Clay in Semi Finals"? No, I didn't. The checking of marks happens in every game of every round.

If it's Sandra De Jenken coming down, that I don't mind it at all on the contrary

Let me guess, you bat for the wrong team?

It might be frustrating but imo it's better to slow down the match a little and get the calls right vs. not checking any marks and getting some calls wrong. Personally though I don't find it all that annoying or frustrating. It doesn't take a whole lot of time, no more than something like 30 seconds to come down and check the mark.

OK, so I was wrong in assuming your post was inspired from the current SF going on at RG.

Anyhow, I think "every game of every round" is heavily exaggerated. And once again, players only want to do everything in their power to win a point, and ensure fairness. No one is going to want to give away free points.

Well, first of all ---> does not equal

Second of all if I find a woman/girl to be goodlooking I'm for sure a lesbian ? dude, 90% of the girls are lesbian then

Thirdly, I don't think that if your gay your batting for the wrong team, you're just batting for your right team.

As for me being a lesbian or not, that's my buzzynez


And Sandra still rawks

Allez.
