Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Lisicki just posted a tweet that made the WTA website in which she thanked her fans for supporting her during her recuperation and said how much she "looks forward to competing injury-free very soon(paraphrased)..."

From a purely human standpoint,I wish Sabine all the best health...yet,while she looks forward to competing in good physical shape,injury free,there are a few things that AYE look forward to as well....Such as our municipal police force going the rest of the calendar year w/o accepting or soliciting a bribe...A complete end to major narcotics traffic in Mexico by wintertime....And the absolute disappearance of warfare on the face of the Earth.....I wonder which of the four above scenarios is most likely to happen

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Caroline definitely chose the more prestigious of the two tournaments;we're less than 5 days away from the release of the Qualy draw,and Fes doesn't even have their website up and running correctly.If you click on the link now,you get a scarcely-detailed,monolingual(French) blurb on LAST year's event.As I recall,this is par for the course for Fes;they're basically saying,"Yeah,we're an MM---WTF is it to YOU?If you had any money or power,you'd be buying a ticket to that Premier in Germany,wouldn't you schmuck?So sit there and be glad if we're in the mood to give you any tourney info by the end of the decade!"

Someone should tell Sveta that GP SAR stands for "Go Play Stuttgart,Abandon this Rinkydink!"

Eh, Svetlana could definitely use a win and I don't believe she would get one in Stuttgart.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Well,I can appreciate the Building Confidence Thru Winning Strategy,but I wonder if Sveta is dropping down a bit too far in level of competition to achieve any greater goals.She's a two-time Slam champ who could certainly win another,yet she's playing a SUB-Mickey Mouse event in Fes(it's more of an Elmer Fudd or Wile E. Coyote tourney)....they're so freakin' lame that they're less than three days away from the normal posting time for the QD...and they don't even have a current website.Any clicks lead you to the 2011 website...which might be due to the Rubber Band breaking on the server over in Fes.I hope that poor Sveta can find a dependable horse-and-buggy to chauffeur her to the stadium

"This could be good news for Chelsea. This could be a groin injury for Messi" .. Word for word correct quote from on of the commentators and yes I admit, if hating Chelsea was people, I would be China ..

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Turns out that Fes was canceled because one of the typical fundamentalists took over the tournament and demanded that the gals play in burqas.When Sveta and the other seeds balked at that,the wackos-in-charge had to call the whole thing off because there weren't enough gals who'd agree to those terms

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

So, does anyone care about the Monte Carlo final between Djokovic and Nadal? Djokovic did not play there last year so Nadal was able to keep his streak going and I think he will finally beat Djokovic again. Of the two of them Nadal has looked much better this week and he has to feel confident on that court, if he is going to beat Djokovic that seems like the perfect place for him to do it.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Well, Djokovic can't afford to lose concentration when in front, like he did in the QF vs. Haase. Leading 4-1 and then lose 3 games in a row (and it could've been 4 even) before getting somewhat back on track. And in the 2nd set, being up 4-0, it seemed like the same was almost about to happen.

I didn't watch the SF, so I don't know if there was any improvement.

I never thought I would be pulling for Nadal to win, particularly on clay, but such are the vagaries of life.

YES!!!!!In fact,we should start a whole new thread---We could call it "The Caroline Fans' Man-purse Posse"---devoted strictly to the ATP.....Seriously,though,I have a lot of respect for Rafa's sustained success and his managing to win every Slam...and Nole deserves major kudos for breaking through so impressively while competing against two legendary contemporaries.Federer's somewhat lower current level doesn't diminish Nole's accomplishments that much,IMO....Having said that,I'd still fork over some money to watch a few ATP'ers get forced into playing a rugby match...or Aussie Rules football

So has Ivan Lendl actually done much for Murray's game?

It looks like his only contribution is giving Murray a hair style to emulate.
