Re: To counter that other disgusting thread
Great thread, pigam. Congrats to Justine and Amelie for showing the tennis world what you are capable of.
I understand that some Justine fans are perhaps a little over-excited about yesterday's win, but there's no need to rub it into everyone's faces and engage in mudslinging. Like every other Justine fan, I'm elated that she got one back on Amelie.
But I know the next time they play will be a new chapter in their fledging and hopefully long-lasting rivalry, and there's no guarantee that Justine will always be the winner. They are both far too talented to let the other figure out a formulaic solution for victory. So unless we want to foster an environment of unfriendliness, with arrogant demeaning threads after every victory (and that goes for all fan bases) ... it's always good to practise a little humility.
Let's hope that they will push each other to greater heights.
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
