Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Jury Murray is queen, she ain't going to let some Aussie girl take it any time soon. Heather is sweet, but frankly Kim Sears is more of a British Tennis Queen than her or Laura.

Its the same with some of the bigger players all the hype let the player do something big and then you can hype them, sure robson got her biggest win, but it will get overshadowed if Li pummels her...

A mistake! Ironically enough Judy does look a bit like Judge Judy and I can picture her being on a tight lipped jury

"clap him in irons and lash him until death" she would cry.

As for Kim, what does it matter she gets more exposure and is the other half of a player who is x100000000(8) more successful than the other two

This was always coming of course, surprised it took over an hour before someone opened this thread.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Let a player EARN hype? What is this blasphemy!

It also won't get any less annoying when she's done more stuff that's worthy of hyping. As an example, Serena and Sharapova are two of the most successful players on tour (I'd call them the most successful, but ya know, Venus is still on tour so that's untrue) can you honestly say that their fans can't be annoying and overrate their preferred player? Especially when they're in the same thread and disagreeing with one another.

She could quit the game today and would still get a lifetime job at the BBC.
