I try not to be hater, I look only after my favs and do not touch threads of another girls.

Re: Don't deny you are a hater

Not sure that this attempt to label everybody as a hater is all that productive. The human factor is a large part of what makes sport appealing, and part of that is that there are always personalities that we respond to positively or negatively. Nothing wrong with that IMO.

Of course there are players I dislike, and I wont deny feeling a certain satisfaction sometimes when they lose. The greatest satisfaction is when it's one of my faves who beat them. In general I try not to gloat too much when that happens, but actually I don't even think that people who do are necessarily hardcore haters. Some of the funniest posts on TF are in-your-face comments celebrating the fact that a certain player lost. It's only problematic when the gloating tips over into serious maliciousness, as for example players like Bartoli and Kerber have had to deal with in the recent past. But the worst of that took place outside TF.

Re: Don't deny you are a hater

If I'm not a fan of a player, it's mostly due to their on-court attitude or their playing style. Hating is a waste of emotion, and I don't know enough about tennis players to judge how they are as people.

So really, I'm a fan of some players and not a fan of others without disliking anyone intently at all.

Re: Don't deny you are a hater

I'm also out of control.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

It's pretty easy to find out whether you are a hater or not:
There is at least one player on the tour. Every time she loses, it makes you happy, no matter who she lost to. Whenever she's playing, you are always wishing she loses.
When she wins, you are either indifferent, or you are disappointed. But when she loses, "oh yeah, it's great".
That's the definition of a hater.

Who is that player for you?
Alright, alright...You don't have to tell us. You don't have to print her name here. But she "makes you a hater". Just admit it.
Repeat to yourself 4 times: "Yes, I guess I am a hater"... and you'll be forgiven. It's like a secret confession.
I have repeated mine 4 times. And now I feel better. I will not celebrate her losses again.
Cure yourself today. Admit you are a hater.
Auf wiedersehen !!!!
Cool story bro.

So they get a free pass because they're bettors?

Not at all! You misunderstood me. Not excusing those sad fucks or anything. I'm just saying, they do this all the time if you check players' FB pages. The players probably don't really care by this point.

Rest in peace, Elena.

Just idiotic ramblings out of frustration sometimes. I don't really hate any player on the women's tour.

Is saying the current field is weaker really hating anyway? Idk..

Rest in peace, Elena.
