The final in the Olympics wasn't a final the tradition of Olympics Games deserves

Re: Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

I think the AO final was embarrassing. The Olympics was expected. When was the last time Maria didn't get totally fucked over by Serena? The AO final was just a disaster

OWNED

Cheers JN

So it's OK for them to do it to people, but when someone does it to their fave they don't like it

BTW - do we add the China Open final to that list

If you are talking about the MODS closing threads they don't like, I gotta agree!!

I opened threads talking about TENNIS, WOMEN TENNIS PLAYERS AND THEIR RECORDS and they get closed or deleted!! WTF!!

But, somebody can open a thread about who got the biggest BOOBS in the WTA and it goes on forever!!

I am lost on this kind of fairness, but then again, I am a hair from senility, so it must be me..

Istanbul was closer than people expected

Olympics final. Without a doubt.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Um, if Serena was "breaking at will", wouldn't she have avoided going down 40-0 in Maria's service games in the first place?

In any case, even if it is "worse" for Maria to lose her service games from 40-0 up, it doesn't change the fact that Bradbury's statement that Maria was "struggling to win points" clearly isn't true - WHICH IS WHAT THE WHOLE ARGUMENT IS ABOUT - and that if Maria was "struggling to win points" then logically Serena must also have been "struggling to win points" in the USO final before her stunt.
My God, talk about grasping for straws.

Because it was at a slam semi.against Serena, but.people seem.to overlook because.it was.in a tier I tournament and everyone forgot about it

The were also.some drama with Sharapova and Schnyder in Roland Garros I dont remember the year

The difference is that Maria was never going to lose this match no matter what happened.

2007 and here Maria did nothing wrong she hit her serve and Schnyder wasn't ready but she raised her hand too late and the umpire gave the point to Maria.
Anyway it's all in the past, can't you guys move on ?
