View Full Version : Why is "boredom" the main feeling when pro players get their asses kicked?

Is this why Venus and Serena are kicking players butts? Seriously, if the loser is "bored" with the trouncing then wouldn't that make them kinda weird? Why "bored"? Are they in fact really "bored" with their performance or what? Personally tennis players who lose against a top player shouldn't feel so much as "boredom", but maybe determination. Maybe this is why Venus and Serena have good "HEAD"2"HEAD'S" with players they beat before?

Hmmmmm "boredom" huh? Hell if I lose a match I am alot more INTERESTED!! INTERESTED in kicking your ass the next time we play against one another. But "bored"!! wtf?


Top players need to cut it with their "boredom" act because it only takes a "BORING" person to become so damn "bored". It really doesn't reflect so highly of the person who is claiming "boredom", Imho it doesn't say too much about one's "HEAD" or mental frame of mind. Especially for a tennis player at that.:)

If I'm understanding what you're insinuating.
I think she said she was bored with those two playing each other...not that she was bored playing them.

And if that doesn't make sense to what you're asking, then just disregard as my crystal ball is in the shop this week.

:p

They couldn't possibley be anymore bored with them playing each other in the finals, then I am with these threads.

You didn't understand what I am saying, read my title. "Why is "boredom" the main feeling when a pro player/s get their asses kicked? I am also not refering to any CERTAIN player, but to those who claim "boredom" when they just got sent on the first flight home.

I am not insuinating anything, I am plainly stating that players who get their asses kicked and claim boredom AFTER they get beaten in a match are not so focused on beating that player they lost too in the near future.

I am refering to those who are on the tour who really think tennis will be boring in the future. They are basically saying my game will be boring, because Venus and Serena will dominate. If a top player says a player they lose to is "boring", than what does that say about how they feel about their own game? Was their game more exciting?

Rebecca where were you when the board had a million Seles topics two days ago? lol:)

I think all of us must read thread like Choco did.

Let's take this moment in a positive way:angel: please...

It is a nice match that final on saturday, I take the sweetest memories from this kind of matches for myself and makes me feel very good.

This great moments will give women's tennis more attention than they use to have.

Boring, fixed, power, ZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzZZZZZZZ stop it;)

I posted in some of the Seles topics actually.

Perhaps if someone would have responded to me in them with insults, than I would have written more in them.

I like to do both, enjoy the tennis and make my threads that I think bring up solid points. :)

Dawn - girfriend, those are my sentiments as well! :)

Matter of fact, I didn't start hearing or seeing the words 'boring' or 'boredom' associated with tennis until Venus and Serena ascended to 1 and 2 in the world.

Oh well...:D

Choco - People said it about Steffi and Monica back in the day. You've been following tennis a long time have you not? I would think that you would remember the flack they got.

Rebecca - seriously, I didn't hear nary a word about 'boring' during Steffi's or Monica's reign. They both played an exiting brand of tennis.

I must confess that I did hear the word 'boring' whenever Harold Solomon and Eddie Dibbs used to moonball each other to death.;)

Choco - I would have been ten at that point :p But from what other posts have said, I was pretty sure that people were also bored with Steffi and Monica's dominance.

I still don't think that Serena and Venus, should even be mentioned in the same breathe as Steffi and Monica yet, mind you - maybe in time.

And moonballing is boring, no matter who does it ;)

Whenever players dominate,.....Navratilova, Graf, Seles there is always going to be people who resent the dominator and consider it 'boring'. Prime example; Seles has been quoted that when she was growing up, she thought only 2 women played tennis - Martina & Chris as they were the only ones playing on tv on the weekends (in the finals). So, for the other 1,038 player (or so ;) ), things would get boring. It's a cycle of life being so good. When you are at the top and winning everything, people become complacent and resentful. I don't know if anyone hear remembers, but pre-Hamburg 1993, Monica Seles was *not* well like AT ALL. I watched in person her 1993 Ameritech Cup match versus a very very very well known and immensely popular Magdalena Gryzbowska. Needlesstosay, the crowd was behind Magdalena very vocally. Clapping double faults, screaming out when Monica was about to serve. Anything to throw her off so she wouldn't win.

Guess what?--- She won.

So, it's just a cycle. When you're the best, people get sick of you winning everything.

And as a side note - I really resent people who disliked Monica in April of 1993 and now think she's just wonderful. I've been a fan of hers through it all, and it just makes her whole accomplishments to date seem too cheap to have people jump on her bandwagon because she's proved to them time and time and time again that she's a survivor. I'm glad she's wildly popular, don't get me wrong. But growing up, my arch tennis rival absolutely hated Monica...and now he thinks she's the best thing ever. Fairweather fans at their best.

So...there's a tangent. Sorry, I'm getting carried away tonight.

Forgive the typos there, and the bit about MagGrz being popular was sarcasm. I don't know if that bit came thru clearly.

This my be a biased statement but why does it seem that so many Canadians get BORED so easliy? At least in here so it seems.

"By George this thread, just MOCKED you". So bored it made you appear. Remeber their is ALWAYS something to do. One should never be bored, as it makes for a boring person.

I truely thank you for my laugh tonight:) Needless to say, I was quite entertained.

"What? a sweet college gal like yourself Becca isn't somewhere getting laid, no parties on the holiday? Your young it is the Fourth of July.. wtf?"

WHy should I be out getting laid and going to parties, simply because I am in university? SOme of us have to save up for the september semester, that we might not even be able to afford.
Some of us don't feel like getting laid by people that we aren't interested in.


"Girl you need to "live" it on up, dance, party, stay away from the computers.wtf is wrong with you people? "

Partying costs money. See point A.


"You're young , have a normal fun summer, why don't yah."

my summer is consisting of work, breif visits home, and sleep. The ONLY things I have to look forward too are tennis.
Perhaps if my parents spoiled me with a never ending money pot I could have one of these "normal" summers that you speak of.

Seles - (not sure if you were talking about me or not, but regardless) - you can say that MOnica etc got critisized all you want, and make as beautiful points about it as you want.

But *certain* people just don't want to hear it.
