Re: AO F: Princess Vika def. Li Na 4-6 6-4 6-3 DEFENDS TITLE!

I feel like my soul got injured in that match. I had to keep reminding myself that I watched the infamous Kuznetsova v. Chakvetadze USO SF in person to make myself feel better.

I honestly thought...

Re: Why isn't Schiavone more popular in the media??

I think tennis media would cover her more if they could. But there's probably some marketing person telling them to cover the pretty or IMG faves. I remember reading, years ago, an interview with...

Re: What's better: Unbeatable # 1 or great spectrum of top players?

1998-2001. I loved that collection...and that was before my favorites were "dominant."

Re: RG R2 - Rus def Clijsters 3-6 7-5 6-1 and causes Tennisforum to crash! Congrats R

Davenport beating Clijsters at RG 2005 was more shocking to me.

This is just much, much sadder. Sad for tennis, that is. I care about as much for Clijsters as Clijsters cares for RG.

Re: Is F. DEWULF implying that CLIJSTERS will loose her Sydney SF on purpouse?

How doe Filip Dewulf keep staying relevant in your country?

Re: Serious Question: Are the players allowed to take anti-depressants?

IIRC, there was a case of Mirjana Lucic and anti-depressants in France. Not sure if this was also part of the whole "IMG put me on Wellbutrin and tried to ruin my career" case but, whatever.

At...

Re: History vs Reality: Schiavone and Zvonareva

I watch quiz shows in the U.S. and there have been questions on "Jeopardy!" or "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" and no one knows who the heck Kim Clijsters is...even when they had this guy Ken...

Re: Serena's Foot fault and penalty point

In the poll for this thread (as it currently stands), over two thirds of those who responded think they know what the call was. And most of them think it was a foot fault, rather than not. I don't...

Re: Why is Serena being punished so harshly?

Try going to your school or workplace and say the words while making threatening gestures to a co-worker (without jest) and see where it takes you. Doesn't matter if you're going to actually do it...

Re: Why is Serena being punished so harshly?

I'm amazed that some people are excusing the act of verbally threatening violence against another human being. If any of us did that in our schools or workplaces we can be thrown out/fired,...

Re: Sharapova vs Oudin

The more prominent Saturday, Sunday and Monday Labor Day matches are always played during the day (for CBS). It's nothing new.

Re: CBS/USA better than NBC/ESPN

Everyone's biased and certainly obnoxious about certain things.

You just had to hear it to understand how bad it was. And it came after that rumor that Dokic had called her a "dirty old lesbian"...

Re: If Serena wins this tournament (and I do not think she will) ....

I was about to say the same thing.

Even 2003 was better at this point. (And that was before the Clijsters match. Somehow, it's like everyone forgets Emilie Loit.)

Re: Bud Collins: Kuzzy always finds a way to lose

I really like how ESPN uses Bud Collins, as opposed to how NBC relegated him to two-minute anecdotes and the one interview after the match. (And then they dumped him.)

Seeing him get into it with...

Re: Could I ask this board not to call Sveta by this awful nickname kuzzi? Svetik is

Ow!

I like Kuzzy (and, like others have said, she hasn't complained about it).

When she disappoints/screws up, I like to then call her Lose-y. Or, you know, Losenetsova.

Re: All four AO semifinalists from same country

Serena beat Davenport in the QF.

Serena got 100% first serves in in one of her two sets against Martina Hingis in the semifinal.

Re: AO QF:(3) Safina def. Dokic 64 46 64

That was a lot closer than I expected it would be, yet it was so close it was very disappointing to see Jelena lose. So many missed opportunities and dumb line calls. (Though I'm still hesitant to...

Yeah, the crazies are hiding their hurt. It also helps that they lost 3 times on the same day (Serena lost once, Serena lost again in doubles, then Justine gets served a bagel) and the whole time...

Venus is far from my fave. Very far. And I still chose it from the ones on the list.

I'm one of those insane weird people whose faves are Justine and Serena (contrary to what a lot of Justine...

Out of those choices, I don't know how anyone could not choose the 2005 Wimbledon final. (Yeah, yeah, I know people are voting for others because their faves won them.)

If this were for a slam in...
