Thank you for your opinion... The whole seeding thing was a revelation... I thought they just played whomever showed up on a first come first served basis... Now please go and recheck the the results, injuries, training events, and watch the matches again.
Rehashing the same tired arguments about her sex life is boring in the extreme, and little more than a tool used to try and tear this community apart. Voicing it pretty much discounts an understanding of tennis, and deriding her choices precludes respect for her as a person, ergo why post here at all? Moreover, It is also way beyond the scope of reasonable debate about her performance as an athlete. I assure you I am not alone in this opinion.
A tip... If I wan't to call out a troll, I will. We have had more than our share here already, and we will deal with them accordingly.
Another tip. There is already a thread for left-field Caro related musings and non tennis trivia where such theories can meet the reaction they deserve without endlessly derailing this thread....
Ok lets compare results then. July 2010-June 2011 Caroline won 10 titles, made 3 finals, 3 semi-finals. July 2011-June 2012 Caroline won 1 title, made 1 final, 3 semi-finals. July 2012-Now Caroline won 2 titles, made 2 finals, 3 semi-finals. Given Caroline met Rory in July 2011, you can see why people may think their relationship has impacted her results.
Rehashing "the same tired arguments" maybe boring in your eyes. Yet you do the exact same thing just reciting different arguments about rackets, training and injuries. It's a discussion up for debate, there are no black and white answers.
You may not be alone in your opinion, but it's quite evident from reading this thread, the other side has plenty of takers too. Just putting it down to them having a lack of understanding for tennis is just a lack of all objective thinking. Everybody ultimately wants Caroline to maximise her on court performance, there are clearly many who feel she is not doing this right now. No-one, at least very few (there maybe a few out there I guess) are against her being in a relationship, it's not like being in relationship = decline, it's how you deal with it.
Jimmie48 (and the others you insulted rucolo, Chrissie-fan etc.) are not trolls, they have opinions. Just like you and I have an opinion. May I ask when you consistently bring in personal insults against users and pundits, how is that not derailing the thread?
