I am just not even remotely ready to wrap my head around this. I know for a fact that I will be distraught.

Relax, my god.

You badrepped me for a statement i wrote in May this year in that thread without giving any arguments. I never badrep others for statements they make. I'll try to argue about that statement or if i think it's dumb i will occasionally say so. But if i'm badrepped myself without argument i will sometimes return that favor, call that childish, apparently that's how we are.

As i said before i don't see the sisters as an unseparable pair. I like Serena more, you like Venus more, NP.
1. If, and this is a BIG IF, if I bad repped you May, why would you wait till freaking December to bad rep me? Sounds like you have a problem of holding on to things. Move on!

2. Unless someone hacked into my account, I did not bad rep you or anyone for that matter in the month of May because I can prove it:

jrollaneres25(me) did not even KNOW that good or bad repping existed until last month(November)!!!

Please don't pass on to me what has happened to you from previous people(again, a sign that you hold on to things, Let it go man!) on Tennisforum or in your personal life.

And to make my point that I thought I had made clear(but I guess not), Serena would not be as great as she is now if it hadn't been for the bar that Venus set( Again, THESE ARE HER WORDS!)

You badrepped me 4 Dec for a post i wrote in May. This is what you wrote:



I understood your point, i just don't (fully) agree with it. We don't know how great Serena would have been so we can only speculate.
