I don't think he badrepped me for that reason, because I didn't say "moonballs are right" or "moonballs are wrong". I just said that it's something different, and the reaction to it wasn't positive. At least I thought that the reaction wasn't positive. He seems to disagree. That's why I added that, since women's tennis already has many detractors, we should support everything that can gain attention and appreciation to it. I wasn't bashing (I like both girls), I wasn't disagreeing with him. I just wanted to show support to women's tennis! I like variety and changes of pace, even if the moonballs in that rally were a bit too many and this rarely happens in real matches, especially between top players. That's why the crowd was laughing. He tought that I was trying to impose my opinion, but I just wanted to show support. It's a different way of conducting a rally, but too many moonballs this time in my opinion. That's it. My post was probably a bit ambiguous/cryptical. That's why he probably bedrapped me. I still think he's a good poster
I swear I'm not trying to monopolize the thread with this topic!
