I don't dislike her as a person. I'm not like the crazed Pova fans are with Serena -- I don't want her to get injured or die.

I just don't support her as a tennis player. And its fun riling Povatards up.

That being said don't try to figure me out Svetlio it will take you centuries.
Kinda realised that you basically confessed that this is your 273 account so had to go back and edit. Don't worry I ain't a kiss & tell kinda gal.

In any event, we have all fallen short of the glory of the Lord at one point in time. As of 2013, I still want Lucifer's daughter to lose every match she plays.

You know I would do everything for you.

First of all, two of the quotes date back to 2008 when you congratulated the Satan's daughter on her AO crown. This was 4 years ago so I sincerely hope for your sake that you ain't majoring in something connected with maths, Justy.

Secondly, it saddens me so much to find out that you are a backtracking wannabe bitch like Miss Reetard, I thought of you as a real heterosexual man.

Thirdly, stanning for Miss Gurl is beyond being classified as an unforgivable sin. Once you worship the daughter of Satan you are marked for life.

oh NOEEE.. you are so getting banned for yet another month for calling a player "satan", considering you were banned for referring Goddess Vika as "demon"

Do you do anything other than bitching about the mods and indirectly trying to get them to ban posters you don't like? That quote in your sig couldn't be more accurate.

Re: Serena's 2013 Clay Court Strategy

There's no real formula or accumulating a backlog of matches that can really prove fool-proof to peaking at RG. Quite simply she has to perform better there. She has to prioritise her best tennis for that event.

That said, I've always maintained that a heavy clay-court schedule is a pre-requisite for maximising one's chances at RG. Especially for someone like Serena, where the transition isn't a natural one compared to other surfaces.

I agree with your first opinion, but wonder about the second one when discussing Serena. But I can definitely understand your logic.

I'm of the opinion that simply practicing on the slow red stuff (Mouratoglou Tennis Academy) will be enough for a player like Serena.
History has already proven this to be the case. And she has already vastly improved, as her latter season results have already shown.

Personally, I'm not a bit worried about actual tournaments she will, or needs, to play leading up to the FO. As long as she takes adequate time to train her body to adjust to the slow clay conditions, footwork, and taking her time to patiently constructing points, she will be a force.
The only thing I see her possibly having a problem with is the 'patience' part.

Yes, apart from contributing absolutely nothing to GM, I also screen cap posts from other sub-forums, stalk twitters of posters I don't like, trash talk posters and players in a sub-forum and throw shade, read them down, spill lukewarm tea 11111, etc etc

Good sis Akil is such an inspiration to me

Shall we pull out your receipts from the Olympics final, skinhead? The ones that got you banned? You have no room to talk about exposure.
Yes, I liked Pova in the past, but I don't like her anymore. Is that NOT my right, to stop liking a tennis player?

All these bottom feeding assholes are so obsessed with LBV and he does. I understand that I keep you bitches pressed, but you should at least publicly pretend that I don't.

Well you should have been. For the rank stupidity and feeble mindedness you seem to take pride in, if nothing else.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Oh you weren't? I confuse the Stormfront members sometimes, my apologies. You weren't the one that said they wanted Serena to die, its was another one.

In any event, stay pressed bitch.
