Re: Do You Think Something Fishy Is Going On At Indian Wells?

I think the players can send a message in a much more constructive way.

Things like this will happen every once in a while. AO 06 was a bit like this.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Re: Do You Think Something Fishy Is Going On At Indian Wells?

I'm not sure what the conditions are like so far this year, but in the past Indian Wells has been known for often very difficult, windy conditions. Perhaps thats an issue this year too? This tournament has had its share of past surprises through the years

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

The ball just flies more here than elsewhere and the top women have obviously not put in enough work to adapt.

Plus no WS means why should they bother playing well since nobody is even interested in the womens side. Watch the mens over on Sky Sports if you want some quality tennis.

well, according to your logic, the women should actually play better here since they don't have to face the ws and, therefore, should have a better shot at the title, so...

Re: Do You Think Something Fishy Is Going On At Indian Wells?

Jelena has not played well yet this year.
Elena just wasn't ready. She needed some down time after Dubai and just couldn't get ready.

Every other contender is still there, playing

Dinara
Ana
Vera
Amelie
Dani
and most of the young stars
Caro, Vika, Alisa, Aga

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I think they are tired already from trying to meet the requirements for the Road Map.

I think they all should flunk out, and let a no name win. That'll definately send a message.

When did anyone ever play flawless tennis? You don't need to be perfect to win.
