I also wanted to say this:
I use TF on multiple computers and devices, so my "subscribed thread" list can get skewed since it doesn't always register on every device as the same list, so one computer may only have 2 subscribed threads, while another has upwards of 10 (don't ask me how it does this I have no idea).
Last night I went on a computer I don't use TF for very often, and I didn't have this thread subscribed. When I searched for it, it brought me to Volume 13 on like page 50 or something, and it was all the way back last year, in Montreal, and all the comments for about hoping for a good draw, and how just that day the draw came out and she was to face either Hantuchova or Wozniak. I read ALL THE WAY TO PAGE 264 before I stopped (this was last night, and most of the day today). Over 200 pages of comments, reading about our beloved JJ.
I didn't even know about player cheering threads, because I would've been RIGHT HERE WITH ALL OF YOU IF I HAD KNOWN
It feels like I know each and everyone of you posters. I really wish I was here during those matches. From Potato going to the Dallas slam, and the other poster who went to the US Open and got some kind of candid picture with her before security rushed her out of the venue
All of you went through the emotions I was feeling at the exact same time, I just didn't know about it since I didn't know this part of TF existed
It's like every single one of you was speaking fore me. All the heart break, all of the wasted break points, set points, and match points. There was point for a brief second I wanted to give up on her. I think it was either the Peng Shuai Cincy loss (FFS Jelena I was at work I was in such a bad fucking mood because of you for that loss) or the CSN Beijing loss (everyone jokes about WTA players up 5-2 and usually say something like: inb4 5-7 loss) and then she goes and doesn't hold serve for like 500 more games after that epic choke
But, I prevailed! As like most of you, every win gave me life (insert YOU. GIVE. ME. LIFE. gif here), and every loss had me so confused with life, as well as exhausted with heart palpitations. I'm not the only JJ fan who goes crazy during her matches
I was CRACKING UP with some of the comments being posted
x 1,000,000 doesn't even show how hard I was laughing. It was at good times, and at bad times. Since I knew about every match going on, I was laughing being happy seeing pages of her winning the first set or something, then went to sad mode seeing everyone sad and mad that she choked away a match she should've won
Also, something that literally had me in tears (not from something here, but reading about her Dallas slam run to the finals reminded me) but Jelena during her runner-up speech uttered, "I just want to say thank you to my coaches, who are making me a better player every day..." and I LOST IT. I had so much bottled up emotion because that match was SO FUCKING FRUSTRATING I had to let it all out. I was crying with laughter, and maybe a little bit teary eyed knowing she blew another opportunity at a title. I mean seriously, OUDIN? VINCI? Jelena are you kidding me...
Anyway, that was the past.
I just had to relive her BOGOTA SLAM MOMENT because it brought me so much life. Her winning showed me how emotional I got during her matches. I have never been so negative during a match as I was during her SF against Knapp. Every error she hit I got so angry; it really wasn't like me. It showed me how weird I was whenever she didn't win certain points, but she started grinding out matches LIKE A BOSS
so that's all I could ask for
Sorry for the length of this post, I could go on for hours because I love Jelena that much. If you read this, congrats!
I love how the best tennis player in the world brings so many people together
PS: I really need to learn how to speak and write and understand Serbian
