Why is this forum so bipolar?

Everytime a player wins a hard-important match suddenly they're GOAT/the next #1!

Woz was a ball pusher, a hasbeen, had no talent before beating Rena, now suddenly she's a GOAT, super talented and an amazing player who iwll destroy Maria!!!!!!!!!!!1111111111?

Re: Why is this forum so bipolar?

Sharapova has been playing consistently subpar despite getting great results, thus Wozniacki beating Williams in a convincing way makes people believe she's the favorite.

Why? Well, retrograde amnesia. People are unable to remember anything more than 7 minutes ago. That said: Wozniacki will beat Sharapova because 5 minutes ago I saw a replay of Wozniacki beating Williams and the Li/Sharapova match. Wozniacki is the GOAT, Williams is useless, Li is no tennis player at all and Sharapova is a pusher. Or near enough to make no matter.

Re: Why is this forum so bipolar?

Too many haters in GM. The other really stupid aspect is that people pretend they know the future to insult players.
I've seen that with Wozniacki. They act like they came back from 20 years in the future and Caroline never won a major. Thats it is definate she'll never win any.

Its just BS to insult a successful player. Stupid idiots who want to hate on successful pro athletes

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

Re: Why is this forum so bipolar?

Because you're only as good as your last match. So currently Woz is GOAT, future slam winner and will be returning to #1 in a month, while Serena is obviously a mug who should retire.

If Wozniacki wins a slam I've lost all faith in women's tennis.

Re: Why is this forum so bipolar?

Actually only half of TF is bipolar. The other half is so completely obsessed that they perpetually rewrite history to make their faves look good and throw crap at the players they dislike, no matter what actually happens on court (see the post above). Not sure which is worse.

Yeah, well, straight from the horse's mouth. You make the same statements about a whole host of other players as well. As if you're any more clairvoyant.

Re: Why is this forum so bipolar?

The overall tone of GM is different than it was 3, 4 years ago. To me, it seems more petty and "dumb and dumber" like. But it is what it is. Others might see it as being more fun

Yes, Woz is coming for Maria's wig next. It's okay to be pressed.
