Re: Who will you miss more Andy Roddick or Kim Clijsters???

Kim definitely. Roddick is a dick, and I'll be really happy to not have to see him acting like such an asshole.

Re: Kim Clijsters: a true champion!!!! (41 titles in pictures)

I think it's probably true to some extent that people will never find a player they like as much as the player they first loved, but I think some players transcend that. If someone asked me who my...

Re: Kim Clijsters: a true champion!!!! (41 titles in pictures)

Her first mixed doubles match with Bob Bryan just ended a while ago, and I think the crowd there somewhat made up for the half-empty stadium for her last finals match. Kim looked like she was having...

Re: Kim Clijsters: a true champion!!!! (41 titles in pictures)

Thanks! I think it's harder on us than it is on her! She's leaving with no regrets, feeling like she accomplished all she wanted to, and looking forward to the next chapter in her life, while we're...

Re: The Dumb Stuff ESPN Commentators say

chill out. Yes, I am aware that the Olympics is considered by some as a fifth slam, but the fact is that it is not a slam. If she had said that it is considered a slam, I wouldn't have had any...

Re: The Dumb Stuff ESPN Commentators say

My favorite dumb Chrissie moment from this USO was during the tuesday day session when she spent 15 minutes babbling about how the Olympics is different from the other slams because during the...

Re: Kim Clijsters: a true champion!!!! (41 titles in pictures)

Yes, she is. As much as I loved how she could seemingly move from defense to offense effortlessly, I will remember how nice she was more than anything. I had the pleasure of meeting her at Stanford...

Re: Olympics R1: Suarez Navarro def. Stosur 3-6 7-5 10-8

Nope, not a new fan, I've been a fan for several years. I like doubles quite a bit, and I became a fan when she was playing with Lisa Raymond. I live in the U.S. but if I lived in Australia, I might...

Re: Olympics R1: Suarez Navarro def. Stosur 3-6 7-5 10-8

Yeah, I know what you mean. :lol: I was just giving you a hard time, I didn't really think you could think she has no skill at all. Although on GM, it is hard to tell...so many will say that...

Re: Olympics R1: Suarez Navarro def. Stosur 3-6 7-5 10-8

Why are you bringing this "compared to her peers" thing up now? That is not what you wrote. You didn't say that she has less skill when compared to her peers. You said she has no skill. There is...

Re: Olympics R1: Suarez Navarro def. Stosur 3-6 7-5 10-8

I'm not blamimg her topspin, I'm blaming her lack of the weapons needed to succeed on grass. In case your reading comprehension is too poor to understand my first post on this thread, the one to...

Re: Olympics R1: Suarez Navarro def. Stosur 3-6 7-5 10-8

Federer is the greatest player ever, and has such a great variety of shots that he can hardly be considered as someone who is known primarily for using a great deal of topspin. As for Nadal, it took...

Re: Olympics R1: Suarez Navarro def. Stosur 3-6 7-5 10-8

No, the surface does not suit her game perfectly, and I can't understand why so many people here keep saying that. Having a big serve and a powerful forehand does not mean ones game is suited to...

I'm getting Nalbandian - Tipsarevic on that one. Anyone got a link for the Clijsters - Vinci match?

Re: Can Serena win 10 Wimbledons

You don't know me at all, so go fuck yourself. If she won the next 9 slams in a row I think most would consider her the best ever, but since it's not gonna happen, I guess we'll never find out.

Re: Serena is the Greatest Player of All Time

Having the greatest power does not equal being the greatest player. Yes, when you watch her you know she is very powerful. You also know that if her serve is working, that will carry her through a...

Re: Where are you from? Why are you a fan of the WTA?

I am from Chicago, IL, USA. I am a fan of the WTA mostly because I love the game of tennis. When I was a kid, I watched tennis when it was on tv. I had an aunt who worked at Wilson Sporting Goods,...

Re: Can Serena win 10 Wimbledons

Yeah, I think her lack of FO titles is one reason I don't consider her the best ever. Even if she did win the FO again, I don't think I would consider her the best ever. The current players just...

Re: Can Serena win 10 Wimbledons

yep, and she could probably win one more US Open and Australian Open in that time. Even though I'm not a fan, I still think it would be kind of cool if she ended up tied with Evert and Navratoliva...

Re: Serena is the Greatest Player of All Time

She didn't say that Serena is the best ever. It might appear that way when you choose to enlarge and bold "is the best woman player I’ve ever seen", while failing to enlarge and bold "at her best...

There were more grass tournaments. If I remember correctly, before Wimbledon there were a couple of others in the UK before Eastbourne. Also, the Australian Open was on grass up through the...

Re: Can Serena win 10 Wimbledons

I am surprised that no one has started a poll asking who the best player ever is, and listed Serena as the only option.
