I think the problem is NOT with the true critical notes on the game of the player in her special fan forum. These notes can help us to see clearer what to expect and in what time-scale from our favorite - and what to appreciate from her regarding the difficulties and troubles she has to overcome. (For example, my biggest favorite is Halep already for more than a year, and I still have my notes on her game.)
Unfortunately, some people here in the forum are only ABUSING, and when they are questioned, SIMULATE that he/she made only meaningful critical notes. So, what makes the difference? In my view, if that "critical notes" are random negative things, or are valid.
It is quite obvious to me, that only those people can make the proper differentiation, who are following the player's matches, tournaments, seasons, etc. closely enough, and have eyes/sense for tennis. According to my observations, there are really surprising number of failures here, even among the so called "experts"
. However, some of them might feel that there is a problem with his/her "oracle" abilities, and thinking that everybody else is this blind and clueless. They preach that praising of a player is only right AFTER she has run "deep in slams", "won several larger than MMs tourneys", "has beaten all the big players many times (and when they were "ON")", "has won at least 1 GS title", and "reaches the No.1 ranking only AFTER she won that GS title".
I find all these requirements quite bizarre
. In case of Halep, whose fast rise in 2013 was awarded (after 6 titles and coming up to the No.11 position from 60 something), and is best described her achievements now as "meteoric rise" (properly!), and who not only lived up to the expectations and saved her points in 2014, but emerged on a larger scale as a "rising star" (now almost a steady marker of her like in the old Greek dramas
), and captured the No.2 position in the race (and soon in the ranking), and who knows, but by the end of the year she even can fulfill all the other "requirements", so my question is this:
Just to be "politically correct" to those blind and clueless people who cant's see the TALENT and the WORK IN PROGRESS in front of their eyes (only the LATER RESULTS which are always lagging behind), we must wait for a minimum 1.5 years before we allowed to praise her?!? Never
