In all seriousness, that's too harsh on Sharapova though, if only Caro had half her determination and work ethic.

Does that mean that when Azarenka does the same thing you'll jump in another player's bandwagon?

And stop bringing Sharapova into every comment of yours, you're embarrassing yourself.

I've got news for you: They ALL value fame and money. Just tell Vika or any other player that she won't get payed and I don't think that she will show up just because she loves the game so much. And if they don't like fame they've chosen the wrong job.

Re: Andy Roddick: Support Caro on twitter!

This thread is a mess.

And about this outrageous assumption that McIlroy has been slumping whilst with Karolina, I mean you have to be kidding He has won a major and gone to no. 1 whilst with her whilst she's plummeted from no. 1 to outside the Top 10. Give me a fucking break. People are truly delusional. I mean to say and kid in passing that they're causing each others slumps is one thing, but then to have professionals endorsing that view and one sidedly I must say is absolutely laughable

Yes its very bright, wasting your best tennis years following your boyfriend around instead of trying to hone your craft and win some tournaments!

With fans like you, who needs haters?

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

Are you kidding? It seems like 70% of the members here like to kick people when they're down. And then rub salt in their wounds.

Re: Andy Roddick: Support Caro on twitter!

Gary Player is not knocking McIlroy. He's a 77 year old who is trying to help him.

Gary Player ‏@garyplayer ... 29 Jul
For the record, I am a huge @McIlroyRory fan & supporter. Period. I think @CaroWozniacki is super & good for Rory. I wish them all the best

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Andy Roddick: Support Caro on twitter!

I have always respected Roddick for the way he speaks out in support of tennis players, male and female.


I hope Caroline can show people she's still got what it takes.

Re: Andy Roddick: Support Caro on twitter!

This maybe noble from Roddick, but it kind of misses the point. Journalists, news outlets are going to write about what sells. In the poll on ESPN website*, 53% think McIlroy's golf has been affected by his relationship with Wozniacki. Now there is no such poll the other way around about if he's affecting Wozniacki's game, but what this shows is that a lot of people believe this story. It's a story that sells, it's dramatic, and people are believing the story, so of course people are going to write about it. Rory is a big deal, the fact everyone knows he signed a $250m deal with Nike puts all the spotlight on him. When he keeps playing rubbish week after week, people want answers for reasons why, and there are 2 main ones instantly for your story, his relationship with Wozniacki and his Nike clubs.

Wozniacki is lucky in that sense. Notice how the majority of the spotlight on this relationship is how it's affecting Rory. Yet arguably results have got a lot worse for Wozniacki. Wozniacki hasn't faced any real barrage the way Rory has in press conferences about are you distracted, there isn't another ex-player coming out every week saying she's distracted. There is less spotlight on her, she's fallen down the rankings, she doesn't have any hype machine behind her (Nike), most ex-player's thought she wasn't that good in the first place so her fall was inevitable. Nowadays journalists and the media don't even really care when she loses early, very little about her actual tennis is written, she's not really in the spotlight, so there is no story to write.

*ESPN Poll is here: (http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/post...ing-distracted).
