Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro:Off-topic 4 the POPULAR #1

Sorta seems to be the attitude of a fair amount of tennis 'fans' though. Only events that matter are major tournaments.

I think the celebrity lifestyle's become so deeply linked with the concept of the professional athlete so much now that the issue isn't how many matches you win, but that you appear to win the 'correct' matches and 'correctly' disregard other tournaments which, now you are a 'celebrity', are too much for you to lower yourself to the level of playing in.
