Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

Well, if he can't defend that Genie is being overhyped (which realistically, he can't), the next best thing is to attack other players that are. He seems to want to avoid the mere notion that Genie is overhyped, which is why he dubbed me KeysisGOAT, not GenieisGOAT or BouchardisGOAT.

It's not the first time Blue's been an insufferable shit when Laura's done badly or one of his favourites has done well.

Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

Anyone with Camila Giorgi in their sig should not be taken seriously.

I remember going back and forth with him over something Laura related a while back. Can't remember what is was but I remember thinking his obsession with seeing Laura fail was just bizarre. Now I find out he's an avid Genie fan? Makes more sense. Some people feel the need to pick a side and bring the other down however they can to make their fav look better.

I like Genie. She's good for the game and I wish her success. But it's frustrating to see Laura being left behind after years of being the front runner among her generation. Genie (or Stephens, Keys, Muguruza etc) may bare the brunt of some of this frustration, but really it's aimed at Laura underachieving.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

So, I've mentioned that I'm a cheerleader a few times on here. My team had its first competition of the season yesterday. We won our division. 8 weeks, then down to Nottingham for Nationals/my birthday. Going to be a fun weekend.

Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

I notice that Laura is entered in the following tournaments:
Feb 24th - March 1st - Abierto Mexicano, Acapulco
March 3rd - 16th - BNP Paribas Open - Indiana Wells

I guess there will be a hard court spring cheering thread posted soon?

Hope this is a springboard to Laura's season this year and that she has a good run. I think if she can remain injury-free then I am optimistic.

Laura has withdrawn from Acapulco.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Spiceboy, you seem to bring bad news just when we had some hope again.

Makes sense I guess. She only started hitting a week ago.

I just hope she'll be back on court by Indian Wells/Miami. She just needs to play some matches right now, she won't know how she really feels until she's in real match play.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

Shame she's pulled out but hardly surprising.

Do you have any cheering thread title ideas up for sleeve, Royals? The last two have been genius

Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.

Can't wait

And regarding her post-Miami schedule, I really hope she enters Kuala Lumpur, same week of Fed Cup. Is Kris Plis still the only top 100 player to have entered there, Spiceboy?

Kuznetsova

Karo, not Kris

Usual suspects Nara and Hsieh have joined the list too as the only top 100 playing there.
