Any time I look at RR, guests of RR outnumber currently active members like 3 to 1. Why don't you join us, guys? We'll like to have you here..
What do you mean by "join us" ? I am a member of this board. Where's the difference between being "guest" in RR and being "member" in RR ?
In general, to answer your question as I understand its meaning, I am no fan of "Russian Tennis" nor a fan of Russian players. I am a tennis fan and Kournikova is one of my favorite players. Tennis is an individual sport, I choose my favorite players not by nationality, but by style of play.
As soon as I can watch some more tennis of Kirilenko, she might join my list. Certainly not because she's Russian or was born in Russia, but because I watched the French-Open match against Serena and I was glad to see a player using brain + shotmaker abilites + touch-in-hands + speed-in-feet.
I don't think that Vera would have the patience to read the paragraphs of nonsense that I write about her
I do know of a (non-Russian) player who visits her own forum, and people changed the way they talked about her upon learning this fact. I think it reduced the vibrant discussions because people are now afraid of offending her
And if any players read this, I want to say that when you look back, years from now, you want to feel that you tried. That you were true to yourself.
It's not about success. Materialism is fool's gold.
You want to know that deep in your heart, you gave it your best try. That's really all we can do in life.
And then we move on.
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
