Re: Player forum request thread

No new forums will be opened until the end of Wimbledon 2013 I think?

Yes, after Wimbledon is correct.

Mona was awarded a forum (and Kart never blows smoke).

Re: Player forum request thread

There has been a bias for a long time in the allocation of subforums.

Shvedova (multi slam winner and popular player) has no forum yet Watson/Robson do when there is every chance they could potentially turn into Oudin 2.0. Now look at the Oudin forum

Re: Player forum request thread

Well if 10 people had asked during AO for a forum for Shvedova she would have gotten one probably.

Shvedova simply didn't get enough REQUESTS,why are you coming in here disrespecting other players just because you haven't got what you wanted?

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Don't bet on it. Before AO more than 20 people asked for Petra Martic to get a forum (myself included) and, you guessed it, she didn't get it

Re: Player forum request thread

Us Slava fans have been requesting for one since Wimbledon. I think we just gave up

This. After RG Slava fans, and everyone else, requested heaps but she still didn't get a forum she is a lot more deserving of one than Laura and Heather tbh.

Because she hasn't been achieving enough

They don't look at popularity of player only, but also at her results/consistency.

Hmmmm...no, that's not it either. Petra stayed inside top 60 in both singles and doubles pretty much the whole year in 2012 and hasn't been outside of top 100 for two years. That's more than we can say about many players who do have their own forums.

The decisions have been made, get over it.

Doesn't mean they're good decisions.
