Re: Do you really think women's tennis has gotten worse for the past years?

To get this thread back on topic, I like this article from 2010 summing up the last two decades in tennis, both men's and women's. It seems to ask the same question the original poster is asking. It...

Re: Do you really think women's tennis has gotten worse for the past years?

I thought about this comment on aesthetics not being relevant for you when you talk about tennis. I knew it didn't sit well with me, but I didn't want to resort to drawing from literary theory to...

Re: Do you really think women's tennis has gotten worse for the past years?

No, it was an informative and thought-provoking answer. Exactly what I was looking for. Sometimes this board frustrates me because I make some points based on my observations and I expect a...

Re: Do you really think women's tennis has gotten worse for the past years?

I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on this (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=22054182&postcount=63). Is that a reasonable "rebuttal" of the argument that women's tennis improved and...

Re: Barcelona Final: (7) Sara Errani [ITA] def. (3) Dominika Cibulkova [SVK] 6-2 6-2

Oh well. I was wrong again. Regarding my comment about this discussion (the one I made privately), I take it back. Listen, I'm not 19. I dropped sarcasm and world-weariness before I went to college....

Re: Barcelona Final: (7) Sara Errani [ITA] def. (3) Dominika Cibulkova [SVK] 6-2 6-2

I think you misunderstood my point. It wasn't based on nostalgia. My point is: women's tennis is boring to watch these days because it devolved from a three-dimensional game into a two-dimensional...

Re: Concerning marketing strategies and popularity of women's tennis

Another thing about the lack of popularity of women's tennis -- it's two-dimensional and boring to watch: http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=22054182&postcount=63 . Also, I disagree with the...

Re: Barcelona Final: (7) Sara Errani [ITA] def. (3) Dominika Cibulkova [SVK] 6-2 6-2

There was recently a thread asking why women's tennis doesn't draw big audiences. Is it any wonder? Just watch this match. This match is a perfect example of why women's tennis is boring to watch...

Re: Concerning marketing strategies and popularity of women's tennis

I watched on old Hingis quarter final against Sanchez-Vicario at Wimbledon in 1998. They were playing to a full stadium. Not an empty seat in sight. And then I watched Radwanska's quarter final...

Re: CIN Practice Session R3: [2] S. Williams def. U.Radwanska 6-4 6-3

Keep trying. One day you'll get it right. Meanwhile, I don't think you should make a career out of reading people's minds because you suck at it. I watched the match because I was channel surfing and...

Re: CIN Practice Session R3: [2] S. Williams def. U.Radwanska 6-4 6-3

What kind of an argument is that, seriously? Are you 12? I watched it so that I would have something of consequence to contribute to the discussion, even if it's just commenting on Serena's atrocious...

Re: CIN Practice Session R3: [2] S. Williams def. U.Radwanska 6-4 6-3

It's one thing to play at 10% of your capability, but how about showing some respect for the player on the other side of the net? Serena didn't bother moving, serving, running, and she was visibly...

Re: How many slams would Hingis have if she worked on her fitness like Henin?

Is that all you have? How about some actual arguments? Because I refuse to argue with children and people with the mentality of children. And I definitely refuse to "argue" with people who substitute...

Re: How many slams would Hingis have if she worked on her fitness like Henin?

First, is this a serious question or are you trying to get a rise out of people? Because if it's the latter, I don't see the point of this discussion. If it's the former, I'll try to tell you why I...

Re: Unpopular Opinions

I have absolutely nothing against Serena Williams as a player. In fact, I respect her as a player. But I read posts by some of her fans on this forum (not going to name any names) who hijack other...

Re: How many slams would Hingis have if she worked on her fitness like Henin?

I agree. Her passivity in some matches boggles the mind because then she'd be aggressive in other matches. There's something else I've been thinking about, though. Sometimes she was in the match for...

Re: Best match between Hingis and Davenport?

Not my favourite one, but I just watched it after 10 years and I have two shallow comments to make. One, I love mischievous Hingis. I love it when she smiles/smirks when she either misses a shot or...

Re: SERENA WILLIAMS 101: Why Is Serena Williams So Darn Better Than Today’s Opponents

Nope, not a troll or an alternate account. Just coming out of a 10-year hibernation and trying to find my footing in a sea of players whose style of play is not only completely unfamiliar but also...

Re: SERENA WILLIAMS 101: Why Is Serena Williams So Darn Better Than Today’s Opponents

I didn't think your comment was meant to offend, but the 'hysterical' emoticon is misleading (you can take it both ways) and I sort of wanted to make sure just in case. Not that it would've made any...

Oh, I was serious. Well, half-serious. I'm not a troll, but nice try. It doesn't bother me, though. If you can dish it out, you have to be prepared to take it. I enjoy watching good tennis and hate...

Re: SERENA WILLIAMS 101: Why Is Serena Williams So Darn Better Than Today’s Opponents

So I don't follow tennis. But I was reading about this girl Caroline Wozniacki because someone with one brain cell compared her to the person in my avatar (which I now know is insulting to the person...

Re: Which player(s) do you like watching the most

Same here. I already commented on this in another thread (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=21985612&postcount=104) so, without repeating myself, I'll just add that she had this lightness and...

Re: Which RETIRED player do you miss more?

Just a short disclaimer: The following comment is not meant to put down Serena Williams. I think she's a terrific power player and obviously these days she's pretty much untouchable. She has power...

Re: Martina Hingis - Matches - 1994 Wimbledon (Juniors) QF vs. Anna Kournikova - MGe*

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I don't suppose anyone could re-upload any of those to mediafire? Or are they available on Youtube?

Also, I don't want to start an entire new thread so I thought...
