Why so much bitterness and conflict between Serena and Justine fans ?

Admittedly, i've posted my fair share of comments about Justine, but nothing too major.
I just don't see why the two fan bases have to be so bitter to each other. After the match there were like 5 new threads, a bunch of them bumped and all caused conflict.

Sure we all get pretty intense during the matches as we wan our favourites to win and it is fun to have bragging rights, but it's just a tennis match.

I'm glad that Justine is back and she made the final. It gives Serena extra competition and i love it when they play each other. I enjoyed this final so much more than some of Serena's others finals.

So, what i'm trying to say is that we should be grateful that these two tennis players have the opportunity to play against each other, because it certainly makes tennis more exciting. I do not like Justine's game at all, but she is a champion and i respect her.

It's time to move on from the petty arguments now. I hope they play many more matches this year.

Re: Why so much bitterness and conflict between Serena and Justine fans ?

I don't think there any more bad feelings than any other opposing fans bases who wittnesed higly constested match.

However, there are 2 issues that will not die as long as Justine fans pretend they do not exist.

The illegal coaching, and "The Hand Incidecnt". Yea the Hand Incident.

I don't need to expand on the illegal coaching beause all posters know about.

The Hand Incident is included, because the illegal coaching pattern strikes the same theme of cheating that WS Fans had accused Henin of, following The Hand Incident .

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

It's sports. They are rivals. We are fans.

Is it so hard to understand?

Re: Why so much bitterness and conflict between Serena and Justine fans ?

It's definitely not a representative sampling. It's only the most stupid, most intellectually challenged, no-life, no-own-achievement fans, who totally take this _other_ people's success as their own.. It's them who'd go to the boards right after the match to in-your-face celebrate with only purpose to humiliate the other player's fans, to gloat or to bitch. They are, undoubtedly, a minority here. But also, admitted;y, they are the most vocal. That's life. Everyone got the happiness of their own.

There are a lot of Justine fans that have acknowledged "The Hand Incident" as well as the AO final against Amélie. Fans who were not thrilled with Justine's behaviour and expressed it. However, though some recognize Justine is not perfect, that does not mean we should stop being her fans or talk about "The Hand Incident" every single day.

I think you're 7 years too late to be asking.

This eloquent post, not withstanding it condensecnding tone, would have carried more weight if you were not known for participating in the same trimphalism you accused others of.

I don't recall you calling people to task when it is the other way around.
How would you? You were in the middle of it.

This false and manfucatured modesty or if just crap.
