For RIP clan

I'd just like to say your pessimism is going beyond boundaries, including your comments and avatars and everything.

Come on guys, you're not the only disappointed here. But being fan means being it full time, for better or worse, winning or losing. Unfortunately, we've got the worse part lately.

Come one, cheer up guys!

Re: For RIP clan

Well I'm by no means giving up on Ana as a fan, I'll stick with her till the end.

This is just a way of mourning and expressing severe disappointment.

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović

Re: For RIP clan

A whole thread for this? Really?

Nobody is leaving Ana.. we are still here, supporting her and watching her matches. We are just truly disappointed.

There is one thing I'll never understand.. why can't a fan criticize his/her idol and be disappointed? Nobody is less of a fan for that..

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

Re: For RIP clan

OK. If this subforum is going to turn into the kind of 'only optimism allowed' theocracy that Don is running over in Ana's official forum, I'm out of here.

This is just a way to show our disappointment and sadness. It has nothing to do with not supporting her. In fact, I'd say that it is PRECISELY because we support her so much that we are using these RIP avatars - because every loss Ana suffers stings, hurts and burns. We care too much, perhaps, but we can't help it. Perhaps we are overly pessimistic - but being a fan doesn't mean we have to celebrate every backhand she hits into the bottom of the net, or laud each ball toss she sends two feet to her right.

To make it brief... I think you have misunderstood why we are using these avatars. But that's OK.

Re: For RIP clan

It's really not that serious.


However I do think YOU have gone beyond bounderies by opening a thread just to critisize other fans and they way the chose to express themselves

Re: For RIP clan

As you may have noticed, I did have an RIP avy, but I just fell in love with this new picture so I had to change it
I have absolutely nothing against them, after all, I had one myself. The people who use them care about Ana just as much as everyone else.

Re: For RIP clan

The "How many slams will Ana win?" thread never ceases to give me a good laugh, it shows how ridiculous the posters are.

I think I predicted the lowest with 3-5 about a year ago, now even that seems like a gross overestimate

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović
