Camille Pin bashing??

I noticed this has become a habit on this board to make fun of Pin... and to be honest I had never seen her play until today, but I got to say its seems really unfair to me.
Yes her service is slow and she lacks some power, but overall I think she DOES have some weapons, can hit some good forehands for example.
I mean I think she does deserve her ranking. Didnt she prove it today anyway...

Re: Camille Pin bashing??

It seems her strength is ball direction and taking the ball on the rise.

Re: Camille Pin bashing??

I'm not entirely sure why people bash her, but I'm sure she's earn most of the respect here after that match she's played.
She's a really nice woman, gave little kids some tennis balls she practised with last year at AO
I hope the year would be a good one for her, cause she really deserves it.

Re: Camille Pin bashing??

Yea i have always been in her defense,even when she was thrashed by serena in her only other two "tv"matches;i feel sad though cuz she's had some rough slam losses:1rd 04 US Hantuchova 1/6,7/6(5),7/6(9) had 3 match points,1rd 06 US Loit 5/7,6/4,7/6(4) 2 match points and now to Sharapova 6/3,4/6,9/7!!!

Re: Camille Pin bashing??

I had never seen her play and I have to say that I was VERY surprised to see how good she played, after all those comments that were said here numerous times. I mean, she has a terrible serve and she lacks power, but she is an excellent mover, really quick, and has a good forehand down the line. And damn, even after two and a half hours under extreme heat, she kept running and running, returning all the balls, and almost beat the #1 seed in a Grand Slam. She earned a lot of respect from me and from a lot of people on this board today.

Go Brazilian girls!

The bashing was started by a certain fanbase of an American player. But that's normal for them, they ridicule players that lose or attempt to try hard in beating their favorite.

Who did she beat?

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

She's fantastic! Bashing her is the most gratuitously hateful & stupidest thing ever...

Re: Camille Pin bashing??

i have more respect for her. I was a basher. She def held her own and I sorta wish she won that. Kudos to her though for fighting that hard

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.
