Not a Marion fan but glad she won today; Would have been an even more horrible travesty if someone like Lisicki won....Karma is a bitch
I just came across this remarkable posting No 596 which I found initially incomprehensible. So I took notes to help me comprehend the poster’s viewpoint. I like to share same for those who also may have difficulty in following this poster’s logic:
“Not a Marion fan but glad she won today;
This seems to be a case of the poster not being a fan of either of our finalists but seems to object to Sabine more. I can relate to that; as I usually don’t watch matches wherein I’m ambivalent to both players. But I will watch a match where I have a strong antipathy towards one player and thus cheer for the player whose fortunes I usually ignore.
“Would have been an even more horrible travesty if someone like Lisicki won a GS
Apparently this poster considers that Marion’s win is a travesty but that a Lisicki win would have been worse. I presume the justification for adjudging Marion’s win a travesty is the fact which a lot of posters have observed that Marion won the title without having faced an opponent ranked higher than 15. But Sabine faced opponents ranked No 1 & No 4 and who were last year’s finalists and beat them. So you can see my initial puzzlement in reading this post. But I started to realize that the poster’s conclusion that a potential Lisicki’s triumph to be a travesty is based solely on his animus towards Sabine.
“Lisicki thought she had this sewn up
Apparently the poster is a mind reader.
“and I am glad Marion thumped her today; rightly so; You cannot be that cocky and pull those Houdini acts over and over and over
Apparently it is unseemly to display confidence after successfully overcoming adversity,
“....No player like Lisucki deserves a GS;
Deliberate pejorative misspelling of Sabine’s surname surely identifies the poster as a Sabine hater; not yet a vast contingent on this forum. Sabine has not yet achieved a proficient level of success that would ensure to attract legions of haters on this forum, but perhaps her success in this tournament will inspire more haters to emerge. In any case I now know I can expect to read pure unadulterated venom.
“She shows up one time a year and sucks the rest of the year
One must be successful at all times, otherwise your infrequent successes are to be sneered at.
“and is always complaining about injuries, etc...No real champion is like that
Real champions are not hypochondriacs only the phony ones are.
“She has no consistency at all in her game, results outside Wimby
Well at least her results are consistent at Wimbledon that should count for something
“and clearly with her emotions/mental state...She strikes me as severely bipolar and I think there is something wrong with her
Apparently our poster is a licensed psychiatrist.
“One minute laughing, the next crying, the next fist-pumping, the next "c'mon-ing"...It is a rollercoaster of crazy with that girl
I am with the poster on that point. This is definitely questionable behavior on Sabine’s part. The WTA should be urged to implement rules that would put an end to such antics.
“She should seek a psychiatrist to diagnose her problem so that she can be properly medicated at all times
Ah ha! I knew it! This poster is a psychiatrist who is trying to drum up some business.
“It is too bad Aga threw away this opportunity
You win some you lose some.
"but Marion took advantage and did not drop a set...Will be interested to see how Bartoli responds now that she won a Slam;
Maybe the poster will become a fan of Marion.
“good decision to drop her dad
The secret to Marion’s success in this tournament revealed.
“Lisucki will go back to her slumping now and mediocrity and losses to random nobodies...That is her usual pace and I have no reason to suspect she will do anything relevant
Back to calling Sabine names.
“until Wimby next year where I hope she gets slayed
(sic) early on by a competent player
That hope might be in vain. Sabine’s worst result in the past three years has been last year’s QF loss, and we all are aware of Sabine’s penchant to defeat the freshly minted FO champions,
“Her professionalism in that match was disgusting:...Crying during games and before serves?..What a trainwreck
(sic) of a player
Women do not cry. They are not emotional creatures. Only men cry and are emotional. Gasp! What am I writing? The poster has unhinged me.
“You would never see Vika or Serena or Maria acting like that;
Stating the obvious: Sabine is definitely no Vika or Serena; not even a Maria.
“it was disgraceful how immature she is and how emotionally fragile..
Definitely jonesing for a paying patient.
"Serena and Maria would have laughed if they saw those antics; like "girl, wtf are you doing?
It is supposed to be a closely guarded secret but apparently the poster has learned that Maria and Serena got together to relax in front of a big screen TV in an undisclosed underground bunker sharing popcorn as they watched the championship match
”I knew Lisicki would come out and be an error fest today.
I wonder if the poster had put down serious money on Marion based on such prior certainty.
“She thought she won the tournament when she beat Serena
There we go again with the clairvoyance.
“and she was dead wrong; celebrating her opponents defeat, tweeting and partying and acting like the tournament was over
I think the poster is exaggerating. I am as certain as I know the sun rises from the east that Sabine was aware that after her victory over Serena that she still needed to win three more matches to claim the title. I find that the poster’s claim that Sabine was constantly partying before the title match to be dubious.
“Cost her in a major way today..
Yup. All that alleged tweeting sure saps ones energy and stamina.
“Loved seeing Bartoli thump her like the mug she is;
The poster is an undisguised sadist.
“Well deserved beatdown for someone who clearly had no respect for a GS final by carrying on the way she did
Awful sins committed by Sabine.
“Horrible and disrespectful display by Lisucki
Tell it brother!
"and she was rewarded accordingly
At least Sabine avoided the pitch fork and the tars and feathers.
“Karma is a bitch
Not sure that I understand the context of this assertion. Whew! This poster sure opened my eyes. I truly feel guilty for having desired a Sabine victory,
