What was the deal getting rid of this forum??

Well i thought i would kick it off again... News in that Mark Philippoussis wont be playing at the Tennis Masters Series in Monte Carlo next week as he is in Melbourne with girlfriend Delta Goodrum and will partner her at the Logies this Sunday night.

Flip and Delta were spotted at Bells Beach together yesterday ( photos in todays Herald Sun newspaper) holding hands and cuddling. They were there to watch the Rip Curl Pro except it was cancelled as there was no surf! Television sources confirmed that the Scud is definitely coming to the Logies on Sunday. Delta is the hot favourite to win the Gold Logie.

re: circuit gossip #1

i had MANY complaints by people regarding that thread!

where the problem arose was that what was said could be very detrimental to the player's concerned in that i am sure they themselves and/or their friends and family could have come across this! we are here to support the girls, talking about non-tennisy stuff is ok to a degree but we are here to support the girls and not defame them!

Are you serious? this is a player forum. People come on to this site to discuss things about Aussie Tennis Players. If some posts are a bit offensive then they should be deleted. But i think most of it is just harmless gossip and most of them rumours. When they start getting personal (i.e player talking about other players or person who knows the player) then thats a bit of a different story...

So anyone got any good gossip on the aussie tennis circuit?

Is Delta having a bad influence on Mark's game? He has been spending alot of time with her over the past week from all reports and hasnt been seen at the practice courts of Melbourne Park or Albert Park!

How do you define which gossip is harmless and what is offensive? Truthfully all gossip is offensive, and people should be careful about what they do say as much of what was said on the previous thread could be considered to be libellous. I know the intent of those posting this gossip is probably a bit of harmless fun, but remember if it ever came to a court of law the onus would be on the poster of the allegations to prove what they have said. I think people should consider before they post how they would feel if the same thing was being said about themselves.

More circuit gossip, the single Anastasia Myskina has a crush on Todd Reid, check out this quote from her interview with a French tennis mag.

TM: Which players do you prefer to watch on ATP ?
I love to watch Roger Federer. He's a great player. All he does is sensationnal. Forehand, backhand, everything. Physically speaking, i'd say Todd Reiid, the young Australian (laughing).

:p :o :)

As was reported on another thread, Pat Rafter married long time partner Lara Feltham in a private ceremony in Fiji on Sunday. It is believed 60 people attended the wedding at a golf resort in Fiji. Rafter's good mates Josh Eagle & Paul Kilderry would have been among the 60 people to attend. Lleyton Hewitt may have even flown from Monte Carlo seeing he was knocked out on Thursday and is not playing in Barcelona or Munich this week.

OK a story about Evie. Didn't know she was sick (as mentioned here before) but she was training with her coach in Melbourne recently. Her coach, knows another coach who knows a friend of mine. Apparently Evie's coach asked the other coach, whether one of his tour hopefuls, a 15 year old male junior (stress the word hopeful) would like to hit with Evie. The coach so does not have an opinion of her and of her coach either as they are sort of in competition with each other. Anyway coach2 said: can she hit more than two balls over the net now! to which Evie's coach stormed off.

No huge goss... but I'm sure the best thing Evie needs is a tempermental coach... really compliments her :)

Good to see Mark back on the tennis court in Rome. Did you hear there was a big fire at the players hotel in Rome! Andy Roddick helped save some people but lost all his racquets in the blaze. Marat Safin and his girlfriend were trapped in a corridor but escaped. Apparently Hewitt and Philippoussis were both arriving that day. All the players have now relocated to the Shearaton.

I saw him at the Davis Cup after party Jess. He had about 4 girls after him & he was the last tennis player to leave. He likes to party, I guess he has the potential to get a name like Mark's. :lol: But still he's only young! ;)

When i spoke to Jaymon in March he said he would see how the rest of the aussie circuit went for him and then how he played overseas, then he would make up his mind after aussie events at end of the year, i think he will play on, he's starting to find some relaible good form again but will wait and see how is feeling closer to the end of the year, will let you all know when i get another chance to talk to him.

Depressing thoughts from Dubravka :sad: she was saying she is but isnt lookign forwards to next weeks grass tournie in GRB Quote " yes because its grass and its more my surface then clay..no because i dunt know if i can handle losing another match after palying well. " i just told her to think positive on court all the time and she sayed quote " i knows i havent played but ive worked so hard and it feels like im going no where.. like in cartoons..they are runing but not going anywhere "

i told her this Quote " Dubz! u just came back i mean its gunna take a few matches before u can get some match play doubles is good u should keep playing doubles to get more and more matches dw ul be back ive seen u play ur very good "

she sayed thankyou

ive seen her play too...

i met her at a local tournament here and shes really cool. i congratulated her for thrashing my annoying ex-coach 6-0 6-0 ;) but i couldnt tell how dubz could play then cos the girl she played was shocking lol.

i also saw duz play her quallies at the aussie open but she lost decisively that time to bondarenko something like 6-3 6-2. dubz totally overpowered her :) and i think she has a CLASS serve and is soooo powerful off both wings too. so yeah i think shes got game but too many errors..

anyway shes heaps young it will take years for her to get some consistency i think...with her power game it will take longer to learn than most ppl i guess
