I sure hope not especially for the top players. Confidence is what they thrive on and they don't need to see all the ignorant negativity that has become so prevalent on this board.
They are some great posters who keep us informed and give this board some dignity, but a player would have to wade through alot of filth just to get to some meaningful support.
i particularly hope and pray that Venus and Serena never come in here. There were times when this board was safe for players like Kim, but since she became successfull, she is not exempt anymore.
I once read that Jen says she visits the ESPN board, she must be very brave.
Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
