You don't have to tell me, I'm from there myself , I think I'm pretty aware of the mentality. In any case, Vika gets treated awfully harshly, especially when Belarus will most likely never have a tennis player as successful as her forever (and some might not realise it until after she's retired). I don't think she's completely lost passion for the game either, as it stands she's at a lull in her career which is something every top player will inevitably have.

Historic to win three individual golds in the same games.

Sad for Matt Cronin. Although he is not always kind to us, still wish him good luck...

What do you mean?

EDIT: Just read it...

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Yes. It's weird. When I tried pasting the article link here, it turned to some messy codes.

That particular Radwanska fan in GM is so pressed that y'all called him out on his Vika bashing and then Agatha gets hurt and tried to delegitimize Flavia's win.

Who needs reality TV when you have TF.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

Haha I know I was quite immature in that thread but I very much enjoyed us Vika fans finally banding together after all his shit since the AO .

It's really quite sad how annoying those fans are, I enjoy watching Lady Aga play but they have made me cheer against her lately . I guess I just need to learn how to deal with them better, it took me a while to learn to ignore some of the crazy Williams fans and it seems like the Lady Aga bunch is the next nuttiest.

Every fanbase has a poster or two who's just crazy/has a bad reputation because of their hate on other players. There are a lot of players I just don't care for but I don't ever begin to actively root against them unless they A.) Beat my favorite or B.) Have arrogant fans.

All I could think of during the match after Aga called the trainer how "Aga was delegitimizing Flavia's good play and now victory." If you're going to talk the talk, you have to walk the walk. This website is so huge and with so many posters someone is going to call you on BS if you screw up and go hypocritical.

Personally, I have nothing against Aga and I hope her knee is just worn out, it's probably just tendonitis. That said, I have tendonitis in my shoulder so I can be very sympathetic to how frustrating it is to not have something technically wrong but be unable to do anything but rest. If she's smart, I believe she is a smart girl, she'll withdraw from Miami and rest.

Not trying to hate on Lady Aga here, but she really is an idiot for not withdrawing from Miami. Her knee is one thing, but I haven't sen her play without shoulder tape since around 2011; not listening to her body is another reason she falls apart in the latter rounds of tournaments.

EDIT: Actually have seen her without tape on the shoulder, but it still is clearly a recurring problem for her that she should address.

Well, a positive spin would be to say she's a hard worker.. but yeah, it's not smart.

I wouldn't read too much into the tape as such though, many players just become accustomed to taping if they have worn it for a long time, it's sort of a psychological thing. It does not necessarily mean she has constant issues with the shoulder.

Regarding the discussion above: Yeah, her fans somewhat made me dislike her as well even though it is not fair. I don't follow her closely but every time I catch bits of interviews with her she comes off as pretty nice and likable. Aside from that early 2012 feud with Vika (which both seem have gotten past them a long time ago) I can't say anything bad about her.

But boy does she have some of the most annoying and outrageous fans in GM. Often times it's pretty hard to remind oneself that a player can't choose their fans and it's not logical to dislike them for their fans.

You get the feeling like the only thing that would stop her from playing is a broken leg or something similar. I could imagine that especially now, with Vika and Maria injured/slumping and Serena apparently not being at her very best either, she's extremely determined to make the most out of every opportunity she can get. If she doesn't listen to her body and ends up being more seriously injured then it's her own fault though, as harsh as it may sound.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.
