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! :hug:

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. :sad:

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..

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. :)

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:)

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 :p
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.

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 :o

I'd be a mess if she could only win one more slam :sobbing:

She is no more than a WAG at the moment :sad:

Ana's forum is a bit insane for my liking. And there are too many "Ana, you're the best!" or "Ana is so beautiful" or Ajde Ana" :rolleyes:

Yep thats exactly it!! If you dare say anything bad about Ana or fellow member...your evil post gets deleted & you get an "official" warning!! :rolleyes: :lol:

It used to be good, but the ppl in control there now are trying to turn it into a feckin kids disneyland where everyone is happy and best friends etc!! And all is good & amazing & Ana is great and will be no 1 again soon "kids" bla bla.

I used be a member there back when it was enjoyable and you could at least have a good chat and debate about Ana and even other players. But it has gone very very wrong in last few months and its proven as many of the long term members have left!

But the likes of McPie who wouldn't know what a tennis ball was if it hit him from a Karlovic 1st serve in his balls still remains...says it all really!! :rolleyes:

Ana deserves better than what her forum has become really!! I bet if she ever bothers to look at it, she would cringe at the crap that is posted there by so many!!

I understand being frustrated as a fan and venting. What I don't understand is why R. I. P. doesn't stand for recovery in progress, or something like that. Why retire if you don't really want that? As to her site, I stopped going there before she won in Paris. Some fans were getting weird about her FHM shoot.

Yeah, I agree, I hardly go there anymore and if I do I always wonder why I bothered going back. Ah, those good old days...
(I am Fiskje88 from the Ana forum.)

And personally I do think a fan can be critical of his/her idol. Ana knows she can do better than this.

Jesus Christ in a sidecar! Give the girl a break! I'm pretty sure she's more disappointed than all of her fans ('cept the unbalanced ones). I've been hoping for so many tournaments that a light would go on and it'd be business as usual. Some people consider me a wet blanket and I was still hoping she'd win the U.S. Open. Anything 'tween now and AO would just be balm. I'm very disappointed, but r.i.p. seems to be writing her off. She still tries - I still hope.
