I suppose it must be less painful living in a delusional world than living in reality ... so I suppose I can try and understand.
So what exactly was not true about his post?

Oh finally she is listening, I can see that you found your place. Enjoy your fight against Pusher fans and maybe next year you will come back in the elite group but for now you're stuck with them.

What are you talking about? You're more obsessed with

Just no. She was in the peak period of her career, but this was hardly her peak level of play. To be honest, she only just gutted that one out. I felt off the ground Sharapova was just better and Justine was not finding enough variety to hurt her. Of course, there are factors like it being indoors (where Justine could get rushed) and Sharapova playing at a level she was not prepared for, but it also was a really busy end of the season for her.

Despite everything though, I did not ever think she was going to lose the match. The epic fight she put up probably caused her to declare it was the pinnacle of her career or something when she retired the next year.

I think in terms of her game AT THE TIME (which I am still over), Justine's loss to Serena in the 2010 AO final is an example for the OP.

All players who are more than 24 yo and still didn't manage to enter at least top 30.
