Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

Youtube is way worse, just browsing random tennis videos, if the player is of a certain ethnicity or nationality and the video has at least 10,000+ views, there are people making racist comments etc. , it's vile. Players obviously want to study their opponents so I'm sure plenty of them have browsed Youtube before... obviously they just don't scroll down to read comments.

At least TF is moderated. The thread the other day about players having "accidents" on court got deleted, not just locked but deleted completely. I had this feeling it was a bit too risque.

Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

Hmmm ... players and journalists follow TF, about 80% of which is devoted to picking apart and over-interpreting comments made by players and journalists.

Bit too incestuous for my liking

She'd probably agree tbh, especially after that doubles match.

Not surprised.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

The new posters binge on this first page.
In a few weeks, the GM Bitterness will settle in.

Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

They certainly do. Just ask Miffedmax.

Going off on a tangent but didn't a betting site once use the PYW scores for their in-play livescoring?

it was 2008 Dubai or Doha Qualy, i think. Livescore was completely broken that day.

Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

You guys dont know vicious...You should have seen the Sanex WTA board back in '99...2000...2001....Posters regularly called Venus and Serena monkeys...The "Martians" and the Williams fans were at war...throw Lindsay's fan base in there (Tower of Power) and it was bloody hell...We really have evolved....

Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

It's very tempting to read stuff about themselves but I don't think it would be good for their career at all.
