Re: Petition for Chris Evert, Pam Shriver, ESPN to Apologize to Serena Williams

Surely Jesus Christ, if he ever existed, would prefer you to dedicate your worries and efforts to more deserving causes than supposed gossip about a multi-millionaire tennis player.

Re: Hello Chris Evert... This is about Clijsters, not you!!!

Immature insults like this are an embarrassment to the forum.

The fact you are a moderator and can get away with it is even more shameful.

Re: Is Azderaki Making a Mockery of the Hindrance Rule?

Re: Best Ceremony Ever?

Empty VIP seats, my personal pet hate of tennis tournaments. Put the damn boxes up in the middle somewhere less visible, as if the fuckers care about the tennis anyway!

Williams' Sisters tournament withdrawals: A record?

I have often wondered over the years about the amount of tournaments V and S have entered and then withdrawn from, either before or during the tournament.

Do they rival Steffi? Her many...

Re: What's your most painful tennis memory?

I'll second the ASV beating Seles at Roland Garros, 98. Gutting.

Also, Seles losing to Hingis at the YEC in New York, 2000. Gutting.

Re: Everyones Crying and Laughing Thank You Francesca

Indeed, it reminds me somewhat of everything coming together for Jana at WImbledon in 98, another joyous moment for me watching tennis.

Re: Tennis WINS

I actually enjoyed this match, not expecting to either, what with having no emotional connection to either player. They both won me over though. Even though Sam never got into full gear there were...

Re: After Rome, Madrid, Why the hell stadiums are emply?!

I went to Madrid this Wednesday.

The stadium was around 90% full by the time Nadal was playing, and the atmosphere for the Ana Jelena match was great considering the time it started. Shame it...

Sam Smith has improved I suppose but I am stuck with my early impression of her, that of a dull monotoned lady who is always conscious of the fact that she is "COMMENTATING ON A MATCH", she seemed to...

Re: Henin: Sharapova here, Williams in Miami, it was difficult losses.

Failure to find inspiriation to bring your A game in important matches would be a clear sign to her that a break was needed, not the scoreline. She is, after all , a tennis player, it happens. If...

Not sure about the Lindsay comparison but watching the Justine match, I am really impressed by her spirit and attitude on court, and Lindsay never impressed me in that way!

Re: An Aussie title win by a non Belgian or Williams - good for WTA credibility?

The WTA can never win. Eras are only judged favourably in hindsight. If one woman dominates, the rest of the field is weak. When no woman can hold on the the number 1 ranking, it shows how weak the...
