Laura Granville : Something I always wanted to say about her..

I have to get it out of my chest. I don't like Laura Granville Here's a short explanation. At last year's Canadian Open in Montreal, during the match between Capriati and (Sarah) Taylor, I was sitting right next to Laura (Laura was sitting with another player...but sorry..I didn't know who it was...). During the entire match, Laura was shouting "Let's Go Sarah !" and she kept making fun of Capriati. She was saying things like "Look how fat she looks that bitch"..bla bla bla...I was sort of intrigued but disgusted at the same time. But the worst thing is when the man sitting in front of Laura turned around and started joking with her. The man didn't even know who she was...and at one point, he asked her "Who are you? - Are you from Montreal ?". And she quickly responded "I am a player...you idiot!". I was SHOCKED. She had that spoiled-brat attitude that I simply can't stand.

That is certainly why I always get a BIG kick whenever I see her loosing now.

Every time I have ever seen Granville (twice in person and several times on tv), I have never ever seen her smile.

She looks like she's got a big stick up her ass, lol.

I shouldn't really judge, but she looks like the type who would do something like that. She looks like a snob and does not have anything to be snobby about. She should not call Jen fat because she looks bigger than Jen so she should talk. That is why Jen kicked her rear end.

I really don't remmeber what she looks like but I didn't think she was pretty, not that it matters, nobody should be that mean.

No she is not attractive she always have this look on her face like she is mad with someone. I think it was at the 2001 U.S. open when she was somewhat introduced. She was talking about how great it was to be at the Ash Stadium. She had played in some tournment against Hingis and Hingis beat her. I think she also played Venus at Pilot Pen or Pen Pilot whichever it is and Venus beat, I think she also tried to hit Venus with the ball and Vee gave her a dirty look.

I dunno, but I find it hard to believe that she actually said those things.

Was the Capriati-Taylor match played after Granville had beat Farina-Elia? She had already taken out Arantxa in the first round, so I could imagine she was on a high when firing off comments like that. Not to defend her, but a sudden boost in confidence may lead some to cockiness.

It's certainly presumptuous to reckon that some random Canadian spectator should be able to identify her from appearances alone.

I've never met her or heard anything about her and the comments like they are unreal. I dunno but I think the author of this thread needs to verify that they are not a capriati fan.

I dunno but those comments sound kinda made up and I figure that the author would have ran to their computer and sqealed like a pig going to the slaughter house if she had really said those nasty comments. I don't like tarnishing someone's image before I actually get to know them.Why wait a year to tell us this?

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

Sorry to disappoint you maccardel but you can verify all you want, I'm no Capriati fan. You are entitled to your opinion and sarcasm, too.

Still love you buddy

An experience like this would make me dislike her, too. She is on my "Alert" list now (like she cares about that....)
