:lol: The thing that gets me most about him is that he's such a pretentious twat, with a pic of Anna Karenina in the original Russian in his sig and some crap about pre-sectarian Buddhism on his profile. Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against people being interested in anything like that, but do you really need to flaunt it like that? And if he is such a great intellectual, you'd think he would be capable of putting together some coherent arguments to support his case that Sam is a disgrace to the WTA. His posts are just rabid rants really. Which don't seem very Buddhistic to me, pre-sectarian or otherwise;)

Yeah, this will be key I think. If Sam can really get on top of Sara's serve the match cold be over very quickly, but if Sara serves well she can make things harder for Sam I think. Solid as Sam's serve is, she has shown that she can throw in a shocker out of the blue from time to time, so if Sara holds serve a single break of Sam's serve could be costly.

Not very Buddhist at all! I am Buddhist, and while I am not perfect, I try to not have irrational negative thoughts about anyone.

Regardless as to whether he is non-sectarian or follows a particular sect, there are basic tenets of Buddhism, such as being compassionate to others, and treating others with love and respect. It is sometimes hard to do, and I struggle with disliking aspects of others, but his hatred of Sam is not one of those things that is difficult to stop as it is clearly a choice he has made.

Apparently he is doing quite poorly following the noble eight-fold path, particularly right intention, right speech, and right action. No one who is seriously interested in Buddhiam would be so hateful to someone they don't even know. Like I said, it is sometimes hard to control ones irrational feelings aboout others but his hatred is at a great enough extent that it is a choice, and the nasty things he says are certainly a choice.

Well there you go, we have a Buddhist right in our midst and I didn't even know.:lol: I couldn't have come up with a better illustration of the difference between following as opposed to flaunting your interests if I'd tried.:yeah:

I'm also glad to see that my stereotypical view of Buddhism wasn't too wide of the mark. Really, I have only the sketchiest idea, but always had the idea that it was mainly about making yourself a better person, and your description seems to pretty much confirm that. Nothing very noble about the path our friend is on, that's for sure.

Nothing very noble about the path our friend is on, that's for sure.

It is also about the energy you project outwardly, such that thoughts and actions have an effect not only on yourself but on everything around you. There is a mantra, namyo ho renge kyo, that while it has a great deal of meaning, basically boils down to cause and effect. It is a pretty basic thing in Buddhism that our negative actions and thoughts have consequences, and again, while it is hard to control that, no one even remotely interested in Buddhism would so blatantly and willingly speak so hatefully of another. You should see our discussions at Buddhist temple, "I killed a spider, but it looked like it might have been a brown recluse, but I feel so bad about it!"

There is no way SamL has any legitimate interest in Buddhism. He is, as you said, just a pretentious twat. Actually Sam seems to me to project the essence of Buddhism as she is very peaceful and respectful. Buddhists do not proselytize, and the Dalai Lama said, "You should respect other religions. The essence of all religions is basically the same: to achieve a true sense of brotherhood, a good heart, respect for others." Sam is a great example of having a good heart and being respectful of others, and if SamL were truly interested in Buddhism in any way he would be able to recognize that in her instead of basing his opinions on things that are irrelevant and based only on hate.

I'm not the greatest at that myself, as I really don't like the players who scream, but at least I don't constantly speak so hatefully about them, and I certainly don't hate them, I am just not a fan.

American tv is showing a rerun of Federer and Del Potro. They reran this match three times yesterday, and the Nadal match three times as well. You would think that given that the matches on todays are women's matches they might show reruns of the previous women's matches, or maybe highlights, but instead they are obsessed with showing the men's matches repeatedly.

Why do you always go that way Sam??? The court was open?

Sara to serve for the set :( :(

SilverPersian
Jun 7th, 2012, 03:03 PM
She's not making good decisions at the moment. And she has no confidence in her BH.

She is playing too tight and making far too many errors. She needs to settle!

SilverPersian
Jun 7th, 2012, 03:08 PM
Oh dear.Sam seems really tight and down on herself. She's going to have to mentally reboot in this set, because Errani is certainly not going to give it to her.

This really feels exactly like the 2010 final.

Ado.
Jun 7th, 2012, 03:08 PM
She is not playing smart tennis. Time to use her brain!

she really has to loosen up and let in rip - only way she will have a chance.

Sam needs to rethink here strategy on serve. Sara is returning really well. Maybe serve and volley on a couple of points to break her rhythm.

Toughed out a hold, but unless she can get a break soon this is going to be tough I fear.

SilverPersian
Jun 7th, 2012, 03:17 PM
Is it a bad sign I've broken out the vodka?

stromatolite
Jun 7th, 2012, 03:17 PM
More like it, but can she string a few of those together? :unsure:

Break to Sam! Sam looking better in the rallies now, but she really needs to tidy up her act on serve. Can't afford to gift the break back again.
