Question Why are posters coming down so hard on players?

Lately ive been hearing alot of talk, mostly about Venus, about how players are not able to fix the weaknesses in their games. Many posters are slaming these top ranked athletes and not understanding why the cant fix their backhand,movement, or serve. My answer to this is the "flaws" in their games really aren't that major well at least when your talking about the top 20. They rarely lose so usually there is no incentive to fix their game, and when they begin to lose they may want to change some things however it is extremly difficult to change how youve been hitting a forhand your entire life. I know we all want our favs to improve, but lets be more realistic and not come down so hard on those who provide great entertainment to us all.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Because if a certain player doesn't fix the "flaws" in her game, and stops losing 1st round every week... she won't be in the Top 20 after Warsaw.
