Red face Do you all ever meet irritating 'tennis' fans at tournaments ?

I'm currently at the SWTE waiting for the winners to come up and sign . Sam lost so she will only appear tomorrow morning to sign instead .

While queuing it was made known that only Flavia is coming up . And I hear irritating comments by this boyfriend who tells the girlfriend 'Are you sure you want to wait ? It is only Flavia not Sam . Sam is the US Open champion while Flavia only won two matches in Singapore ..'


Sorry but that statement irritates the hell out of me! Hello , so a non grand slam winner does not deserve the wait ? What is this ? I mean Sam was great to win US Open , but that does not mean FLAVIA is useless and does not play well ....


Other useless comments are like ' I don't know who is the world #2 , she is the tall and ugly one ...


'the number one is the one who wear Adidas ....' Irritating ppl !!!

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

Re: Do you all ever meet irritating 'tennis' fans at tournaments ?

I was sitting next to a guy on court 12 at Wimbledon who bitched and moaned about what total shit women's tennis is, how they don't deserve equal prize money, blah, blah, blah. A good 20 minutes he went on about it. Then unfortunately Petkovic came on court and treated us to some pretty poor tennis. Well that was enough for him to go off again - here was living proof of what he was saying. Stupid tit didn't even have the decency to confine his commentary to the changeovers...


It's later than you think...

I'm not at all surprise. Singaporeans are extremely annoying and kiasu. I'm so embarrassed by their behaviour.

Tbh, I never yell when I'm in a stadium but only in front of my computer. I don't want everyone to find out that I'm paranoid.
