When did they start working together, the end of 2011? Maybe you should give them a bit more time.

I'm not sure that great players make great coaches, Jimmy Connors didn't really do much for Andy Roddick's game.

Wow, I thought Nadal had a chance but he really took Djokovic to the woodshed! 6-3 6-1 Roland Garros is suddenly looking much more interesting.

Shame Novak couldn't make it 8 in a row, but Nadal could. I like seeing Nadal getting beat for some reason.

Usually I do also but Novak has been so dominant that I've started feeling sorry for Rafa. I will be rooting for anyone but Nadal at Roland Garros.

That or the beginning of this year. I suppose so. I wonder how long Murray will give him though.

Yah, that's often the case across sports.

I just read a bit of the main thread and it sure looks like DownInAHole wants to be considered the most negative poster on here.

Their hatred gives me strength!

Eh, I really don't see it as being negative, just realistic. Some people get into a herd mentality and have trouble accepting opinions that differ from their own. Terjw and I often have very different opinions but we can still have friendly debates and see each other's point of view. Some other posters are much more rigid. I think it is a lot more fun to be open to debate and exchanging different views and ideas rather than having everyone be of the same mind and their opinions all in lockstep with each other.

I can be very critical of Caroline but I never attack her personally and my criticism is intended to be constructive. I also never attack other posters. People may vehemently disagree with my posts but I am always respectful to everyone here, even our "friends" in GM. Certainly I have never come close to posting anything that would warrant banning so I really don't see what the problem is.

Well,you utterly confused someone into thinking that you were encouraging mockery of Caroline...when you were probably just stating a basic reality---that Caroline was no more likely to escape mockery than any other player in the bashing mayhem known as TF.

Of course,the onus is on the befuddled to at least try to decipher the message somewhat with sound reasoning skills...or directly ask the poster his/her intent...so you get a free pass on THAT one

If anyone is interested I am starting a collection to get some cash together to pay Jimmie48's bail after he inevitably assaults Rory with his camera today. We may not all approve of violence but let us show some solidarity and let the world know that Caroline's fans look out for each other.

We look out for other fans, but we don't give a fuck about Caroline's loved ones.

Baaaayernnow take out the Cowards in blue ....

Allow me to predict Cowards' starting formation, the famous : 9-0-1, but flexible enough to quickly become 10-0-0 ..

Jesus christ, I hope Chelsea prevents the unthinkable.

Pathetic losers Real, what the heck has happened to Kaka? Wasted a big chance in overtime and the penalty was beyond pathetic.
