Sorry guys, but what happened today...

... was really unacceptable.

Guys... I have to say some of your reactions considering Elena’s loss really surprised me. What happened to the "Lena's already reached the fourth round on her least favourite surface" and "a loss vs Nastya won't mean the end of the world"? I'm kind of disappointed in you guys for reacting like this...

Yes, I know Lena should have won this in two sets with the MP's in the tiebreak, but the way some of you reacted was rather appalling to me and certainly to others here as well. Not to mention unacceptable. To be a fan of someone means you stick with him or her no matter what the circumstances are, and that is not what you did. I can really understand that you guys are upset and disappointed by this result, but this is not the way to express your frustration. Being a fan of Elena means you support her every time no matter what. No matter whether she wins or loses, no matter whether she serves well or double faults, no matter whether she lives up to your expectations or fails to meet them. You stand by her NO MATTER WHAT! That's what being a true fan is about. After RG I thought everybody here got that, but apparently I was mistaken...
And if you think you cannot handle that, then maybe you should reconsider your presence here...

And now think about what this means to our reputation on the board here. Any other member that comes down here will now think we are a bunch of very, VERY bad losers. Because it aren't my or Evin's or Northa's posts they'll remember, but it will be the bad posts some of you posted here that will be remembered and which will be talked about.
Being a decent fan of someone means you express your frustration in a mild manner, not in the way some of you did today.

I myself also find it too bad she lost, certainly given the possibilities she had, but that’s life! I know I shouldn’t be saying t o much because I myself too made kind of a bad post after her loss against Kim at Indian Wells or Amelia Island (The one where she lost in the semis), but at least I learn from my mistakes and certainly you could have learned from mine as well.

This is the first time since my joining here that you disappoint me, guys. Don’t make that happen again.

(Please bear in mind that I am not visualising anyone here, this is just a general point I'm making here.)

Thank you, Elena

I wouldn't worry about reputation (of Lena fans) on this board though

there are always some bad apples

Well Hablovah, maybe I shouldn't, but this is not helping to put across a good image of Dementieva-fans anyway...

well I agree with ya Alenyaa 100% ,unfortunately things got a little out of hand ,I may have been one of the worst offenders ,but was provoked my Hant ,no excuse ,but I agreee ,that of course we always stick with Lena 100% which is why sometimes people get annoyed ,we care so much about her ,looking back at her match today I see lots of posatives (hell I sound like Tim Henman now!!) she served pretty good only got 3 dfs and was the better player until the very last game!

The nature of the defeat kinda made it hard to swallow ,Lena had MPs but there we go thats tennis!

Excellent post Alyenaa. I agree with your sentiments 100%

Lena has great fans and this was just a bad day for many of them. I don't anticipate it happening again.
