Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5
About the GM hatred: A lot of people are bitter. Even though we have great lives compared to what people went thru before lights, cars, radios, tv's, smart phones, computers...
For some reason people are still bitter & dont deal well with other's successes.
GM isnt only anti-Caro. Messageboards & twitter are loaded with hate for athletes, politicians, entertainers.
You cant stop all the hate because you dont like it.
I was happy to defend Caroline in GM because what she was doing is extremely difficult, both physically & mentally.
She was in 15 semis in 19 tournaments, with 12 finals 9 titles.
To me, thats much harder than winning a major. Players like Sveta, Fran, Li, Stosur will never come near 15 semis in 19 tournaments with 9 titles.
What Vika is doing, with 8 finals in her last 9 events, is also is extremely difficult.
I'm interested to see if she can hang in there. It seems like the mental & physical wear & tear took a toll on Caroline. Just like the 2nd half of 2007 took a toll on Henin.
To play well & go deep into almost every tournament is extremely grueling and takes a lot of mental toughness.
And maybe it wears players down
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
