I know, it's awful. I don't know how the hell anyone thought it was a good idea
I spent the week willing Sam to lose
At least they all seem to have come through relatively unscathed. I never thought I'd look forward to the 'real' clay season so much. Bring on Rome............
On a different note, I'm really pissed off so many of my girls are playing in Rosmalen and not Eastbourne this year
Well, Sam certainly seemed happy to be in Rome - did you see the pic on her FB page of her giving two thumbs up to the "real clay" court in Rome?
And yeah, I'm very, very glad everyone made it through without serious injury. What a shambles!
No, not at all, Devotee!
I got steamed, too... bunch of a-holes. And I think they're all missing the point - it's all about the grass, not the clay. I'm betting Vika's just flitting through clay court season with no particular expectations while working on stuff for Wimbledon and the Olympics. And who better to have in her box for that? Also, get a clue (to those idiots): if you're going to make significant changes, it takes more than a couple of weeks to do it, and there will be uneven results during the transition. Duh.
Having said that...I firmly believe that SW's success has less to do with her tennis / athletic ability than with her undoubted talent for intimidation and self-belief. (Not that I'm saying she doesn't have the first two - clearly she does - but others have been far more talented in those areas. No-one has ever come close with the third one.
) I'd love to see someone, some day, just blow her off and spank her around the court. Sadly, I don't think it'll ever happen - or at least, not by someone we'd all want to cheer for (given what sort of personality it would take...)
Nice to see you on the board again. You going over to Eastbourne again this year?
And you're so right - there is a never-ending supply of Hatorade out there.
Thank goodness for MomoSapiens!
to all of you.
