Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

I really can't be f**ked anymore since Lindsays gone. I've loved tennis since I was a little kid before Lindsay arrived on the scene at all and I still went to the French and Wimbledon even though Lindsay didn't play but my interest is severely waning. In my opinion the game is not going in a good way and I don't feel any excitement anymore about it. Does anyone else feel the same now that Lindsay has gone or have you continued to follow the tour with great interest? (btw Lindsay was my one and only favourite player)

It's awful without her, I like a lot of player but none as much as Linds, but no-one can go on forever, at least we don't have to look forward to a heart-breaking three-set defeat in the quarters-semis-finals now

Re: Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

It changes for me everyday. While I have a few "secondary favorites" none are anywhere near as important as Lindsay is to me.

I'm nowhere near as nervous or excited as I would be if Lindsay was playing. I miss the anxiety before and during her matches and the joy of her winning. And the losses of the said secondary favorites don't hurt nearly as much too.

It's just a completely different feeling.
I love tennis still and enjoy watching it. But the excitement isn't the same.
I have pretty much figured out that I'm not going to be able to love another player as much as I love Lindsay. She'll always be my favorite player and while some people may be able to replace their retired favorites with another I just cannot do that.

Lindsay will always be my favorite.

Re: Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

No other player ever would incite as much emotionally histrionics from me.

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Re: Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

I've still enjoyed watching the tennis for the last fortnight but I don't get emotionally attached to other players like I did with Lindsay matches. I've missed her though but I'm just going to have to get used to tennis without Lindsay.

Re: Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

Tennis without Lindsay is no longer worth watching ...I just see the current players and ...well ---> Mary, Venus, and Martina are pretty much gone as well... and why do I feel Serena won't be able to hold the younsters for much longer....and if I have to see another Slam where Justine, kim, or Maria win *sigh* no true Lindsay fan would ever like those three


ps:
Lindsayno1 you avatar is fantastic

Re: Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

I always knew when Lindsay retired i'd lose a lot of my interest in tennis but not the way I have I don't care anymore I never check results or the rankings & I only ever come on this board once a fortnight. Lindsay was magical to me she just had an essence & charisma that no one else could match on tour I don't care about tennis anymore it's boring without Linds she was so special

Re: Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

Watching the Dubai final made me remember the 2005 Dubai final which Lindsay won. Thinking of Lindsay just made me bored of Amelie and Justine....I would rather have seen Lindsay smacking a double-handed backhand down the line Just every now and then when I watch tennis I just get bored of it when I remember Lindsay I would do anything to see (and hear )her hitting a tennis ball again. Does anyone else get this now when they see tennis

Re: Is anyone else here bored and fed up with tennis?

Yeah, seeing all the Justine/Venus fans celebrating this weekend made me really miss her, and made me miss celebrating her wins, what I'd give for even a Tier IV win now

Btw, we've not seen pics of her in ages, has she gone into hiding You'd think she and Gwen would attend some event or something

^^ Well this is Lindsay we're talking about, so I'm not surprised we haven't seen her
