deydreemyn I'm kind of lost here but not being familiar with any of cybell previous post I took the post for a joke. What's up? Why all the bashing? I haven't been out here that long so I don't have a sense of other posters favs and dis likes yet. What has this person done in the past? Just curious.

Thanks

Hingiswinsthis I have a feeling Martina will pick Lindsay Davenport pretty soon, as Corina Morariu plays with Kim Po reguarly now. IT STILL is so interesting Martina Navratilova has never played with Martina Hingis.

Philbo cybelledarkholmexx - Hey m8, ive been labelled a racist for disliking Dick Williams, so I was just making a similar point..Its very easy for me to sit here and just write all Martina-criticism off as homophobia...

Sadly only becca 'got' it!!

It only does if you put down *all* African-American players. *all* lesbian/gay players amd *all* players who do not hail from the country of your birth. If you answer "yes" to this, then, indeed, seek help!

(hey if all non-williams fans are racists, 2 can play that game)...
I was initially going to respond to the topic, but LMAO @ this

Sadly, it was so good, yet the point was missed

Cybelle Darkholme No its not logical to be labelled a homophobe for talking about martina. If I talk about players from other countries am I xenophobic as well? Get a grip people. Don't you know homophobia when you see it? GO turn on one of those religious revival gospel hour television shows and you'll see homophobia.

marsha You may write "this is all in fun" but the tone of your post and what you said sure did not seem at all "light" or "funny" -- to me, anyway.

And just to add here -- you left out Srebotnik and Tulyganova as Martina's partners along the way and, as others have pointed out, you added Panova when you shouldn't have. Some of those you mentioned (Jennifer comes first to mind) were never thought of as "permanent" partners but, as all doubles players do, just "pick-up" partners for a tournie where both players are entered and feel like playing doubles.

As to the "homophobic" remark, I think the point was clear -- IF, when anyone posts anything that is even slightly against one of the Williams sisters. they are labeled a "racist", then if someone posts anything even the slightest against Martina, it only follows logically that that post would be labeled "homophobic" as an illogical beginning premise only begets another!

TheBoiledEgg Martina only played with Natasha to get her out of wilderness and back on to the circuit.
Natasha had be persuaded back, now she is back, she's happy playing with others again.

no one tossed Natasha aside

jenglisbe Let's not forget that she first came back playing with de Swardt and said she wanted to find someone quicker and then went to Arantxa...

Anyway, I don't see the big deal; you don't think every doubles player wants the best partner they can get??
