I was more thinking of the mens reults, live scores, and adulation postings being irrelivant to both a Scandi player section, a Caro thread, and WTF in general, so rather than this thread being flooded with such posts and used as a MTF live score toilet they deserve there own thread which those with zero interest in Fed, Puerto, Nole, and Andy can knock themselves out
Nielsen can't be Caro's Fed Cup team mate unless he has a sex change operation.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

So Britain's Andy Murray made the Wimbledon final. First British male to make the final since Kong Knud (King Knut) ruled the British Isles. Now we wait until Andy (likely) loses to Federer and Andy will again be Scottish ..

I should perhaps inject here that I kind of like Andy Murray. He's very grounded and work extremely hard and carries the weight on his shoulders from the entire British media well.

In men's dubs Løchte Nielsen and another Brit, Marray, made the final. Also for the first time since the days of King Knut.

Nielsen has career prize money of 'just' $324k (Source: Wiki), so RUP $100k or even $200k as winner, should surely tie him over until the next Challenger tournament

Well if Freddie and what's-her-name from CPH-Open (no disrespect - just bad memory) starts making noise, or if Freddies succes inspires Caro to double her doubles-tourney-entries - then their combined efforts may instigate as much as three or four times of relevant activity in said thread every year

I doubt her lack of interest in doubles is rooted in a lack of potential partners. Even though she isn't a experienced doubles player i doubt she would be having trouble to find girls to play with on the tour.

That being said, this is of course a great accomplishment for Freddie

To this thread, absolutely, unless slightly Caro related like her fed cup partners progress. For her doubles tennis we already have a Caro tennis thread.

In short when half the subject matter in this thread is about Fed, Puerto, Andy, and Nole and mens live scores, then its time to make a thead for that rather than risk this one with OT posting.

He has a shot on Sunday. That said, I hope that Federer wins because I'm a Fed fan. But people in the UK should be proud of the guy. He always gives it his best shot and he's having a great career but just like with Henman before him some people are always on his case. Why? Why not not criticize the other British guys that come a long way behind him and never do anything instead of someone who's been a top four player for years? If they think they can do a better job let them pick up a racquet and do it themselves. I wonder what amazing things they have done in their lifes themselves other than to nag about those who are actually out there doing it.



Photo added to make sure we stay on topic.

Such a thread would be immediately deleted by the mods. Calling a female player a bitch or a whore is no problem, but as soon you'll post a thread about mens tennis the mods will refer you to MTF which is even more vile than GM. They do more or less tolerate it on the "anything goes" threads of the player forums though.

looking at his past achievements it's closer to an unbe-f**king-lievable accomplishment

he's 28, he has one previous GS showing and his doubles ranking is 112. Marray is 76. They are there on a wild card .. it's close to the twilight zone (not that I'm complaining )

Any method to restore it to a more tactical sport again would be welcomed by me. Failing that, if it becomes all about power and size again, then I can as a spectator always fall back on Badminton (a much better spectator sport imho) and other passions like cup sailing and cycling again... Track cycling has to be experienced at least once if your a sports fan.

Are Angliru and I, the only Saxo Bank Tinkoff Bank, or track fans here?
I like track cycling.

It isn't the mens live score thread. Drowning out all conversations with mens tennis isn't the purpouse of this thread, rather its a thread to allow section member conversations and loosely related Caroline discussion without flooding the main tennis thread with it. You allready know this.

So why risk this thread? Call it what ever you disguised name you like... I'm glad to see that you apreasiate the concern.
