Classy Serena and Justine fans after dissapointing losses

Well, for the first time in a long time I have seen nothing but total class from both fan groups after two very disheartening matches. No big fights or drama at all and I know we are gutted that out faves lost but we recovered. There hasn't been two many excuses, fights, etc., we just know our girls weren't at their best and the better player won. Especially with Justine fans who have been nothing but respectful after that loss.

Re: Classy Serena and Justine fans after dissapointing losses

This thread feels like a real positive thread as opposed to other thread praising Justine fans for being classy. That thread felt like it was really a backhanded insult to Serena fans, whereas this one seems more genuine.

Don't be surprised to see this thread fall like a stone and not generate responses like the other more divisive thread. Good threads don't have a good shelf life on the GM.

Ain't that the truth.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Re: Classy Serena and Justine fans after dissapointing losses

Im not gonna be classy Serena played like shit.

This was her worst match in a long time probally since Hantuchova at 2006 AO

First of all everything that was working for Serena went wrong her Serve and her Footwork she was moving great until today.

Second Jelena didnt play that well...yesterday Serena moved worst then Lindsay Davenport all Jelena did was get the ball back in play and pass Serena on her poor drop shots or an attempt to come to net.

Henin didnt play as bad as Serena did but she served pretty bad Sharapova had to win the point so many times and Justine had great defense the first set was close but Sharapova did everything better then Justine yesterday

Jelena is a good player though i wouldnt be as dissapointed as i am now if Serena would have moved around the court and actually played tennis

I see...giving the winners some real credit is really asked too much from some people. Sad.

Obviously Juju played much better than Serena:
1st serve % 48 (Juju) 59 (Serena)
Aces O (Juju) 4 (Serena)
DF 5 (Juju) 5 (Serena)
W 11 (Juju) 34 (Serena)
UE 21 (Juju) 36 (Serena)
W/UE ratio -10 (Juju) -2 (Serena)

Congratulations to both Jankovic and Sharapova.

Life is so gloriously improbable

Re: Classy Serena and Justine fans after dissapointing losses

As a Justine fan, I'm trying to avoid any nasty threads, but I am glad to hear Henin fans have been gracious (if they have!) as Justine didn't have too much to be mad about. Sharapova was just outstanding today. The big difference was the serve. Maria dominated on hers - and on Justine's. I do think Henin's serve is getting to be a bit of a worry. It's not got going in 2008, and was always such a strength. However, I thought Justine's running defence was superb. Not seen anyone race around like that for ages, yet it wasn;t enough! Sharapova was superb, and I didn't even get depressed as a Henin fan. I don't think this loss will be too painful for Henin - unlike the Bartoli loss. If Henin had served better, the match might have been closer, but any Henin watcher knows she hasn't been in her best form for a while. To be honest, She's been on a bit of a decline since the US Open. But she'll bounce back, and it's good to have others pushing for the slams. Makes the women's game interesting.
I was shocked by Serena's loss as Jankovic hasn't been impressive. However, watching the match later, Serena was very subdued, and her movement was not good. I watched it straight after the Henin match, ( and I bet Henin wishes she'd had Serena in the quarters again now!!) and the movement of Serena and Jelena was very sluggish. JJ improved once she detected Serena's lack of mobility, and you could see that she realised she had a chance of winning. Congratulations to her for taking that chance, but any Serena fans who will bemoan her loss due to injury, well, she didn't look at her best at all. Was it the blister? Like all the players, she struggled to serve with the sun. EVERY player has found it tough in the early afternoon matches with the sun overhead.
I'm more of a Jelena fan than a Serena one, but it was a good battle. If I were a Serena fan, I would be worried about her long term future as she seems to be having problems with fitness. Jelena will be given little chance against red hot Sharapova, but every day is a new one. Sharapova approached the Davenport and Henin matches like finals. Maybe she'll be a little more complacent?
As WTA fans, it's great to have the Williams, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Sharapova and Henin in the last 8 playing each other. Radwanska and Hanchukova are the less starry ones, but one of them will be in the semis. Bet Sveta really is kicking herself now.

"Classy" is a word often used to describe hookers.
