I thought this might be a fun thread to try. So here's how to play: take a statistic that is true, it could be any stat, and then use that stat to make an incorrect conclusion about a player. Here's mine:


Grass is Venus' worst surface because she only has 3 titles on it :lol:

Here's another one:

Because Seles had won 3 slams in 91 and in 92 she would have won 3 again in 1993 if it weren't for The Stabbing. :lol:

the French Open is Justine's worst tournament because she's had 3 early round losses there!(1st round, 1st round, 2nd round)

I heard that Angelique Widjaja only hit one winner against Anna Kournikova.
Therefore I assume that Angelique lost 0-6 0-6. :)

clay is myskinas best surface because she has won roland garros.

wrong ,because in 5 other years she lost 4 times in the first round and one time in the second.and in any other grand slam she has better results.

Just because Monica won 3 slams previous 2 years doesn't mean she wouldn't win 4 next year.

elena dementieva has blistering groundies so it's safe to assume she has a big serve.

Justine is short, small, and wore a baby-blue outfit in Miami, so that means she's cute and cuddly :tape:

Venus has the fastest recorded serve in the history of women's tennis, she has the best serve on tour.

sharapova has the best career W/L record on grass among the active players, she is the best grass court player on tour.

Conchita Martinez' biggest victory came in 1994 on the grass at Wimbledon, where she defeated 9-times champion Martina Navratilova with a barrage of winning shots.

Mistakenly read as:
Conchita Martinez clearly excelled on faster surfaces, playing exceptional grass-court tennis to become the new Queen of Wimbledon.

smashnova has 9 titles - misread as "smashnova is consistent"

Venus has only been the best player in the world for 11 weeks.

jen and maria have the best slam final records, 100% in them, they must have a whopping grand slam total.

Lol, when I first saw the title of this thread, I thought that it was going to be about posting misleading stats from matches of two unnamed players and then having people guess based on the stats who won.

anna served 31 double faults vs. miho saeki at the australian, that must've been an easy match for the japanese

Sharapova is unbeaten against Russians on Clay, therefore she must be the best Russian Claycourter...

Eleni Daniilidou beat Justine Henin-Hardenne so she is better then her.
Nadia Petrovas has never won a WTA title.
Serena Williams is back becuase she won the Aussie Open.
Jill Craybas beat Serena on grass at Wimbldeon.
The list just goes on and on.

If Graf were still playing today Gunther would be working overtime

Amanda Coetzer, Nathalie Tauziat, Jelena Dokic, and Daniela Hantuchova all have reached the top 5, so that means they are/were ever top 5 caliber players

I meant that just because she hasn't won a title doesn't mean that she's not a good player.

Kuznetzova has never lost a grand slam final. She is 100% in Grand Slam finals.
Hence she is the best in Grand Slam finals

aheee!!

Jennifer Capriati and Lindsay Davenport have both won 3 slam titles so they both probably have a similar number of total titles

(Capriati-14, Lindsay-47)

Since Serena, Justine, and Venus have won the three majors this year, they are the three best players of the year.

aheee!!
Jul 21st, 2005, 07:04 PM
Lindsay davenport finished last year at #1 and has been #1 all year so she must have won a slam last year or this year

aheee!!

ASV beat has beaten monica seles in the year end championships and in the RG final; therefore, she must have a good head-to-head against her.

(3-20)

when a so called fan says something you don't agree with, then that's not reason to hate, insult, bash etc. the player the so called fan is a fan of because in reality the player has nothing to do with it!
