I've seen her twice this year. Against Ana in Warsaw and Pierce at RG. Her game was very average with no weapons and didn't challenge once at all and of course she cried her way through the match. I grew sick when I saw her crying again :mad:

Serena!

Mary Pierce. I just think she is a bad sport.

Mary Pierce. I just think she is a bad sport.

I think that applies to Venus better:

"Navratilova was far from happy with Williams' on court victory dance following Venus' win over Lindsay Davenport."

"Venus Williams strutted in victory, pumping up the crowd with an on-court dance that looked like an NFL end zone celebration."

"Williams won the final six points of the tiebreaker in her 6-1, 7-6 (7-4) win over No. 12 Mary Pierce, celebrating her win by shimmying to the net."

There are a few playing too many events. They need to rest up a little more.

Is it true Benesova has played 20 already? :confused:

Jankovic = 19-20 Tournies.

Dechy & Hantuchova = 18 Tournies.

I think poor Daniela has played 5 weeks straight! :eek: :sad: She needs a good rest.

Petrova & Zvonareva = 16 Tournies. :o

Luckily Bepa, due to her injury is taking a few weeks off. :worship: Petrova needs some decent rest.

Pennetta has also played a big amount this season. :sad:

I'm bored of Mauresmo too...she doesn't make BIG BANGS like some of the other people do. She never loses too early in a tournament, which makes you go :eek:, nor does she ever win tournaments consistently, which makes you go :worship:

She needs to play as many tournies how else will she eventually win a title :tape:

Mary Pierce. I just think she is a bad sport.

Ei leave Mary alone. Atleast she turns up to tournaments fully fit and atleast she does not make excuses for losing becuase of it. Serena can't hack losing. She retires when she knows she is going to lose. (vs. Jankovic and Farina Elia). I was shocked she didn't retire against Craybas

How is Mary a bad sport?I think she always treats her opponents with respect.

i think mary will be with us for a few years yet.

was bored with Martinez (like navrat', I thought she should retire) but this recent resurgence cuts that down

wich players i'm sick of watching?

serena, not a fan of her powertennis
mary, sorry she's a really nice person :) but i don't like watching her. she takes so much time and it's getting on my nerves. don't have the patience to watch her :o
nadia, just don't like her game and mentality on court, she keeps getting more mad and mad at herself even when she's winning. she just doesn't has the mental of a champion.
vera, for obvious reasons...

As nice and lovely as she is, I'm sorry to say it but Kim does bore me :yawn: I find her tennis pleasant but dull and like somebody already said here, it like every time Eurosport air some matches from a tournament, it is almost certain that Kim will be featured in one of them, if not all :o

I'm tired of Amelie too. I find her game, dare I say it, bland :eek: and like Kim, too many of her matches are aired on tv. :(

Maria Croft
Aug 18th, 2005, 10:04 AM
Jankovic and Dechy, they seem to be playing almost every tournament there is and I really don't like to watch them play, nothing special about them

Aug 18th, 2005, 10:06 AM
I am afraid its Kim ,shes a nice girl and one of the best players no doubt and I certainly dont hate her ,but shes SO BORING ,she almost ALWAYS wins the lower matches and finals as long as not Davenport ,Justine etc she is one of the if not THE most consistant players and that makes her boring ,a little drama would be nice ,sure she did lose to PEng so it can happen . Her game style is boring too ,defensive ,defensive ,defensive ,but like my fave Elenas game has been lately ,and it just aint exciting when u know her opponent will simply make error after error (Dani are you listening) and more or less let kim win..

Kims a greal gal ,but for me not interesting at all...she not fragile enough!!
as far as most irratating palyer goes well that would be Maria..

I don't understand why there is so much criticism of these girls who are playing a lot of tournaments.

At least they are supporting the tour especially Kim Cljsters. If Kim hadnt turned up all to those hardcourt tournaments this summer there would be no quality players there!

It would be nice to see Henin vs Serena or Maria vs Venus every week but its not Kim Cljsters or Nadia Petrova's fault that they dont play...

:wavey: Hi, cilly

1) she gets happy when her opponent makes double fault
2) she screames
3) she is a copycat
4) she punches her self in the chest
5) she is so selfcenterd
6) she acts like she envented tennis
7) i've never heard her speaks highly of her opponents
8) people over here hate you if you say something bad about her

Want some more? :)

I'm not sure bored is the right word here, but Mary always makes me switch TV channel. In the past I did not care much, but now when she tends to go deep in tournies...

I'm bored of Mauresmo losing/choking in Quarters/Semis of slams. It feels like she's been doing that for about 100 years. It's like watching a really bad movie over and over again.

Probably she feels very upset when there are 2 tournaments the same week :lol:

I change my mind, she could play 2 tournaments the same week. A loss on monday for the first, a loss on tuesday for the second :) That makes 2 ranking points, yes? :bounce:

I agree!
Unfortunately the same players are playing every week & there is so many tournaments that nobody wants to play so the Petrovas & Clijsters have to make up for those people.
I'd love to see Serena or those other girls play a Tier Two for once but I understand its pointless & they are doing it more for the love of the WTA than their own gain

I liked Venus' dance after winning Wimbledon. It made me happy to see HER that happy,and I'm not even a fan. Sure beats the look on Myskina's face after she won the French. I don't dislike Myskina,but she looked as though winning a slam was the worst thing that ever happened to her. :smoke:

I think that applies to Venus better:

"Navratilova was far from happy with Williams' on court victory dance following Venus' win over Lindsay Davenport."

"Venus Williams strutted in victory, pumping up the crowd with an on-court dance that looked like an NFL end zone celebration."

Nastya gave a big smile up to her box, but she didn't want to celebrate too much because she just beat one of her best friends. I don't blame her for not celebrating much, but it still meant a lot to her. :angel:

Chrissie-fan
Aug 18th, 2005, 06:34 PM
I don't blame her for it,but I prefer to see some emotion at times like these. I mean,this is supposed to be the highlight of a players career. I know,my fave Chris Evert wasn't exactly the type to start doing the funky chicken when she won a slam either,but at least you could see she was happy. Looking at Myskina without having seen the match I wouldn't have known if she had won or lost. In fact,my bet would have been that she had lost. Not meant to be an anti-Myskina post or anything,just using this as an example to make my point that there's nothing wrong with showing off your happyness after winning something big. Makes it easier for us fans to be happy for them. :smoke:

Nicole Pratt (those teeth :unsure: )
Dechy (i cant bring myself to look at her eyes when she is serving :scared: )
Maria (overrated, ugly, boring, stupid, etc.)

Kim (i see her too much. show somebody else espn!!!)

Dechy and Kuznetsova...

dechy's game is boring and I am bored with Kuzzy cuz she fails to meet expectations week in and week out.

AND KIM!

Not cuz of her game but because the summer hardcourt tournies is probably my favorite part of the season and all it's been is KIM KIM KIM.

Sharapova....way to much publicity, self-centeredness and hype
Navratilova....she is boring to watch, she COMPLAINS ABOUT EVERYTHING, she thinks she is the smartest thing ever to hit the courts...among other things...
Kuznetsova....boring to watch, plays too much and makes awful sounds when she plays
Davenport....borrrrring....
Clijsters...she's on TV way too much and is a bit over-friendly/cheerful....bordering on phony....
Schiavone and Mauresmo cause i don't like them....

Dechy, Likhovetsva. Golovin, Hantuchova - Boring games. IMO do not belong to the top 20.
Venus - Glad she's back but not a fan of her game.

you obviously didn't see today's match :haha:

anyhow, I don't see enough tennis to get bored by any tennis players!!!

but I will say that I'd like to see other players in tv commercials than sharapova and roddick (although when I was in France I saw some with Federer) :p

God I wish Mary Pierce would just fuck off sometimes. Her grooming marathons before each serve just pisses me right off. And the sooner the BBC drop that **** Inverdale like the sack of shit he is the better.

Williams Sisters of course...

Why "of course".?

You make it sound that it is widely acceppted and known that they are broring.
Of course they are the furthest thing from boring.
No tournament is the same w/o Venus or Serena.
They bring cachet and a Je ne sais quoi to each tournament they enter.

For the WS haters that's natural to say they are boring so the " of course " comes from that.

i don't really like to say who i find 'boring' bc i can't really back it up. i like variety in the women's game as a television spectator. but at the same time, some of the players with a lot of 'variety' bore the hell out of me.

:tape: i still watch though... bc tennis is beautiful.

it's really a moot point. there are TONS of people who find roger federer boring, and i really think he's QUITE the opposite. he's easily my favorite men's player to watch ever. he's also the nicest player i've ever met.

we just like who we like. i think dementieva's matches are a trip! some people get bored with her. to each their own.

You know what...me 2 only recently though, i am starting to think during commentery she makes comments for effect, like be controversial for the sake of it.
