As I said before I was disappointed Safina didn't perform as well as she had done before in other rounds (it would have been more exciting if she'd played like she did against Kuznetsova) but there was clearly little left in the tank. I am more disappointed by the fact she only faced 1 top 10 in the tournament, who just happened to be my fav typically
I wouldn't say I'm bitter *read above if you forgot* but I am appalled by your conduct, preaching about hate etc when you created a thread targeted at people you don't even know, just because they don't like your favourite player, well unfortunately in sport there are rivalries, love/hate and if you can't get your head around that then I don't know what to say. After all, the very essence of this website is for discussion, and in discussion not everyone agrees.
If you can't understand why many people have disliked Ana in this tournament, just think I wouldn't like the player who beat Ana early on as I was convinced she would get far. Thanks to Jankovic, Pennetta and Srebotnik you haven't had to worry about that so I can understand your smugness.
As I said before enjoy it while it lasts, I mean logically there are other players who stand a much better chance on grass than Ana, major trophy or no major trophy. You'll insist you won't, but I look forward (not necessarily to Ana's next inevitable loss) but to your and other fans reactions to her opponent.
I say good luck to her as number 1, she'll definetly need it.
