Sometimes I almost feel bad for her because she seems so desperate to be embraced by tennis fans like most legends are in the twilight of their careers. Someone I know who was in the crowd for her match against Lisicki at Wimbledon said that, towards the end of the match, when the crowd was really behind Lisicki and cheering wildly on every one of Serena's errors, Serena was looking round at everyone and seemed to be almost in tears. And I still think her meltdown against Razzano at RG was in large part because of how hostile the crowd was. But, despite all her efforts to appear like a decent humanbeing, she just can't stop putting her foot in her mouth (e.g. the rape comments) when there's a slight sign people might be warming to her.

Those were even less funny than Maria's mockings and giggles. And the clownest thing I have seen was when he put on a wig and danced at Montreal this year Stop that Novak. Be a villain or whatever. I don't care. At the end of your career, no one cares about that. Just focus on your tennis. Let's be someone like Vika who doesn't need love from the crowds and only focuses on her tennis and doing well.
None of that has anything to do with his tennis though. It's not because he wore a wig in Montreal that Nadal beat him in the USO final. People always look for external reasons when their faves lose. It's the boy or girlfriend, they spend too much time selling candy () watching golf () or partying. Their mind is not on the job anymore or they don't train hard enough. Fact of the matter is that both Nadal and Djokovic are great players and that inevitably one of them has to lose. It won't always be the same guy that ends up lifting the trophee. Sure, this is not the Djokovic of 2011, but that season was always going to be a hard act to follow. He's not that far away though. He'll win more majors, don't worry.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I agree that too many look for external excuses when when their fave loses. But tennis is such a mental sport, especially when the top players face each other. The margins are so thin in this particular match-up. So, criticizing Novak's social on-goings I don't believe is out of line. The only thing that can really be pin-pointed instead of speculated about is Novak's reaction to the crowd. His play shouldn't be so determined by whether the crowd is for or against him.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Nole fans shouldn't complain about his tennis season, you all talking like you are Federer fans tbh...
Must feel good to be a Nadull/Sarin fan right now, but nothing stays forever, that's just sports. Think of where Nadull was just one year ago, things change and what he did is nothing short of admirable.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

GM is sooooo bad now. If I read another thread created by "douchesanders" from 2010 I swear.

It speaks volumes how they claim Serena to be the greatest ever (which she very well may end up being) but still feel so insecure about Maria who's career isn't even comparable to Serena's. It's almost sad to see, you'd think they'd be happy or at least satisfied with their favourite player doing well, but no.

And did you see they brought back the Wozniacki Miami match result thread? FOR WHAT?


the desperation.

I never read GM and as far as I am concerned they can rant about Maria 24 hours a day.
But they will never take away the fact that Maria has been the most successful new player of the WTA coming out over the past 10 years. And in addition - God bless her - drop dead gorgeous, smart, darn rich.
GM can drown in its own spit.

Is this really how Serena fans celebrate her win ? By bumping old threads, they're miserable.

the desperation.
It's always the same.

You read my mind with this post.

They** are bad winners. No humility. Your'e fave just won, be happy!

Instead it's all arrogance and "dragging". It shows an inner insecurity

Mashabators are actually very humble and appreciative, and most like and respect Serena. On the other side it's the opposite. Their fave owns Maria and has 17 slams, but it's somehow not enough for them

**I say "they" but I mean the bad ones. The majority of Silliams fans are smart and decent people.

Talk about a few bad apples
