Re: Stuttgart SF Laura Siegemund def Simona Halep 6-4 7-5

Another fairy tale run for Laura in Stuttgart, too bad she is useless on other surfaces!

As for Simona, it's baby steps for her once more, she gradually progressed from a disastrous start of the...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

How is this any different from those who keep repeating in this thread that Romania is filled with vile, stupid and obnoxious people, who support sexism and violence, that is when they aren't too...

No chance for that, you guys are all civilized and crowds never create trouble in the UK!

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

I doubt that Sorana learned significantly more about what happened between the stoppage of play and the press conference, at least she was unaware about the full scale of the problem. My reaction...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

Go ahead, judge a nation by the actions of some immigrants! In most cases, those who left Romania to live in Western Europe are not among the well-educated, wealthy or most civilized of our...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

You are implying two very different things here - first you say the FRT is at fault for simply appointing him captain, then you say that FRT should be held accountable because he was acting as...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

I believe the referee only used the crowd as an excuse to allow Konta the time to recompose herself, seeing how the rules don't address such a situation and it all resulted from Nastase's outburst....

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

What behavior of the Romanian crowd, we should not play at home because of a couple of minutes of booing around the time Nastase was shown out yesterday (because people didn't know what was going on)...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

Because the crowd wasn't a problem, if a couple of members of the crowd were yelling obscenities, they should have simply been removed and that's it, there was absolutely nothing unprecedented going...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

You are talking about ideals here, but with a guy like Nastase, who made one bumbling mistake after another during the entire event up to his outburst yesterday, it is simply impossible to comment...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

No one in their right mind and I think no one here defended Nastase's actions, but apart from that nothing happened. The crowd was not rowdy even for normal tournaments, that is why everyone...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

So Nastase has more power and influence in Romania, why should that trouble Simona? Why are we even comparing their influence? What does she have to gain or lose if he or someone else is Fed Cup...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

The mentality is different and there is no shame in that. What makes us angry is people considering all of us inferior and backward just because of the actions of some individuals. It's the same...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

OK, but what do power and influence actually mean? Who has more influence in a Fed Cup team, the captain or the star player? Who would people rather see on the team (before yesterday's debacle),...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

It's not so much that he has connections, but the fact that despite everything he is a sporting legend and Romania doesn't have a lot of them. There have been long stretches when he had no official...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

You really have no idea what you are talking about. Simona has been the biggest star of Romanian sport for the past 3 years, while everyone knows Nastase is a silly old man, involved in all kinds of...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

My thoughts exactly, I get the outrage, as it was completely unwarranted from a Fed Cup captain and such words have no place being thrown at a member of the opposing team, but how could anyone...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

I understand what you're saying and you are right that a strong message needs to be sent after the incidents involving Nastase, but I feel the fairest way to do this is to punish the individual, not...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

I'm sorry, but for me Nastase's actions can hardly be deemed threatening to the point where Konta would fear for her safety. His entire behavior and the words he threw were abject, pathetic,...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

Don't make it sound like it was all Nastase's doing, Cirstea had just won a very long and disputed game on her own serve to lead 2-1 and Konta wasn't that affected by his abusive words that she...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

Do you really think it's in the competition's best interest to default a team because of some foolish words said by one man? He should be fined and suspended, but I really don't see how punishing the...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

She is absolutely not an idiot, the tide of the match had turned her way and Konta forced play to be suspended after getting broken, several minutes after Nastase had been sent away. It's natural for...

Re: Ilie Năstase sent off from Fed Cup match vs Great Britian

And just why exactly should any of the Romanian girls be banned because of what happened today? Just take a minute to think about how stupid that remark is!
