I don't think I know what you're talking about but I don't even want to hear/see it. And I hope there will be very few of this crap (zero would be great) , at least here.
These people deserve to be tortured and beaten till they had enough and would quit doing that.
Ah, OK, Nightcrawl3r I have just seen a similar post of yours on another Simona thread and I realise you are talking about torturing and beating journalists who mention that, not torturing & beating me. Phew!
. And I hope there will be very few of this crap[I]
You are so naive. Of course they will. For non-tennis fans Simona is known only because of this, that's for sure. Life is life - It's normal
My friends absolutely weren't showing any interest in the results of the Kremlin Cup until i said some fact about the winner ))
I said here , on this Forum. Because of course, in other places I see them (without my will), very often or in others people's minds (such as your friends , as you mentioned)
Yes, we always have to keep in mind that TF is completely different from the reality around us. It's a place full of tennis fans, but not only casual ones as to say that here we have people who know the names of every single 10k journeywoman who is battling it out in Turkey week after week.
Now taking into account that many just get their daily info out of GM which is first of all very filtered and in other aspects even more hate spreading than the Romanian yellow press, perspectives on certain topics defer a lot.
Last night I was rewatching Simona's Semi-final in Sofia against Ivanovic. I had forgotten Simona was 3-0 down in the third set but then just reeled off 6 straight games to win, taking 25 of the last 32 points in the process. Awesome!
Serve2Win, I think this was the match you described when you talked of her ability to close out matches on her serve. You're right, it just seems sometimes she is fearless and feels no pressure. Though, like all players, I'm sure she does get nerves at those moments and feels pressure, it's her mental strength and confidence in her game that is so impressive.
Just over 3 weeks until Simona is in action again. I can't wait!!!!
