Hey guys!

Hope everyone enjoyed the French Open Final I'm sure the site will be crashing on and off for awhile, but hopefully it doesn't interfere with getting a chance to read this thread.

We noticed that you guys were looking for a Moderator for this Player Forum, so the Admins and I talked about it, and they've decided that I'll be Moderating Caroline's forum from now on.

I expressed interest in taking the responsibility for a few reasons. First of all, I'm a huge Caroline fan; it really is only fair to the fanbase to have someone who likes the player be in charge of handling edits/deletions/quarrels in the respective forum.

Second of all, I think Caroline (and her fans) do take a lot of crap in GM etc, so it's important to have a place where you can go and "escape" that. For the most part Player Forums are pretty respectful, but sometimes other people can come in and be rude. So I just want you to know that I'll make sure this is a respectful environment; anyone can come in here and post, but rude or disrespectful posts (from fans or non-fans alike) won't be tolerated. If there is a productive discussion taking place I obviously won't stop a "non fan" from coming in and posting, but there will be a line that people can cross.

That's pretty much it, just wanted to introduce myself to you guys (most of you know me/are HUGE fans, I'm sure ), and let you know my thoughts on Moderating here.

If there's ever an issue with something, PM me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Reporting Posts is really the best way to report a problem; if I'm not online, an Admin can make the change requested as well. So between PMing me and Reporting Posts, things should go pretty smoothly I hope.

Now you can all tell me how happy you are to have me here. Right? I'm sure me not being mentioned in your shortlist of potential Moderators was just an oversight.

Seriously though, I think its important to have someone who is a Fan, but is also impartial, Moderate here. I won't cater to anyone or any "camp", and will do my best to Moderate fairly. Thanks guys.

Wasn't she a bit injured there, last year? Or was she past that, when she lost that match, we don't mention in here?

I couldn't say one way or the other but if you are referring to the ankle injury she suffered in Charleston I think she must have been over it. I think the injury occurred on April 17. She made the quarters at the French Open (she was eliminated on June 1) and made the fourth round at Wimbledon (she was eliminated on June 28). If she did that on an injured ankle her result this year at the French Open is even more disappointing.
