:confused: 6 months ago, Forehand_Volley or whatever his name was was posting an article a day, and they were just a more present force on this board, for better or worse. Can't really seem to find any lately.

Now, it's constantly Sharapova can't play on clay or ridiculous polls like "Who can slide better? Sharapova or Jackie Robinson?" or constant bickering between WS and Sharapova fans or Ivanovic fans and Ivanovic haters/detractors. It seems like things have completely changed or is it just me?

Down the toilet. Just like her career.

ahahahhhh OMG:tape::help::lol::smash::haha:

I actually wanted to write this exact thread at the beginning of the AO. At that time Henin was still the best player around but you could sense that Sharapova was going to trash her. So the fans started disappearing... (except plantman that sometimes comes back and ninny that has millions of IDs).

I admit I miss them as they are probably the smartest fans around. All you have now is:

Williams fans: bombshell!!!111@@55$$$ Serena just flushed Isha down the toilet!!11144331!!!**

Sharapova fans: OMG Maria just beat the player ranked n.267 7-5 0-6 7-6 (15) in the Micky Mouse Island clay tournament!!! Like OMG Maria is on form and will win the FO!!!!:weirdo:

It's really depressing:tape::lol:

I think Henin is one of the best players around at the moment. If her hardcore fans only have an interest in tennis when she's playing then they're in the same boat as those fans of the Williams or Maria Sharapova who take it to the nth. Bear in mind that there are very cool fans of just about every player.

If she's not playing a lot they probably don't have much to talk about. She has only played like four matches in the last 6 weeks.

its like asking where are the williams fans post US open
if shes playing her fans will be around too
its only the williams haters and bandwagoners who have disappeared
not the true justine fans i think

They'll be back for the French Open, no doubt. But I do agree with you, things have changed in GM.

This part of the year is always a bit boring. We've had the exciting start in Australia and a few other moments in February/Match, but now I just want to get to the heart of the season (French Open-Wimbledon). That's when things really heat up. Well, for me anyway.

To be honest the criss-cross on the fence fans just became psuedo-Henin fans in 2007 partially to bash the players they hated.

While, Henin does have a true everlasting fanbase, I think her fan numbers were supplemented by anti-Serena fans that just rode a bandwagon. It's like when someone wins a lot of money.. lot of friends around they come out of nowhere. That person goes broke.. they're back alone.

A lot of Justine fans stay out of bickering, that's what I notice, I guess they're all in her forum waiting for RG :p

Whats the point in Henin fans bickering and annoying everyone else, when she isnt playing, like fans of other players do? :p They seem to be the most controlled a lot of the time.

Justine isn't playing right now, and they really haven't had anything to cheer about in a while. I'm sure they'll start posting again when the Berlin/Rome/Roland Garros trifecta begins. We'll probably see the "Justine is Over" threads bumped when she wins 2/3 of the above tournaments.

Ugh...

People dont get it...

of course we are here around the board reading stuff
we may not seem so visible because unlike other fanbase, we don't usually comment about things not involving our fave.

So was there anything to comment when our fave is not playing an event?
None...

Was there any article to post when there was no write up about our fave in the press?
nadah...


At least we are the only fanbase who are only vocal about our fave when she actually produces the results.

I think we are the only fanbase who are living in reality and not in delusion...

but with regards to our presence, 100% we are alive, you can check out the log-in listing, only that we humble ourselves in silence instead of trashing other players just because our fave suck at the moment!

I'm here, and I'll be her fan until the day I die.:) I guess I am in a strange place being a fan of both Justine and Serena, but for now, I am having fun seeing what Serena can produce (and I'm hoping for some great matches between the two of them on the red clay and on grass). I do miss Justine's presence on the courts though (I really wanted to see her play Charleston).

And with Ju out with injury, we dont get too much of a chance to post about her, cause she isnt doing anything!
But when she comes back we will dominate these boards haha.

Go Justine!

This fan is still here. Hopefully Justine will be winning tournaments soon! Looking forward to Serena-Maria today. I think Serena will win. Did anyone see the short highlight they showed of the Charleston final, I think in 03. Justine won, at the net they embraced and Serena bent down to give Justine a near kiss! A month later in Paris, there were no kisses at the net-lol!!

Get your facts straight, she did not. Sharapova has not played anyone out of Top 200 this year. The lowest ranked was Mattek. And that was 6-0 6-0.

Respect her for what she can do, and not what she can't.

Oh and if someone wins 7-5 0-6 7-6(15) I really admire them for the fight. Sheer drama.
