Re: Rubbish you hear at tournaments.

Today in Katowice during the Pironkova-Peer match I overheard two old men talking about how excited they are about Goerges-Craybas match. One of them said Julia was going to play a certain American and added that even young American rising stars need to play such small tournaments to gain points for their ranking

Re: Rubbish you hear at tournaments.

I was watching Maria/Errani QF at Indian Wells in the front row, and this moron behind me asked his friend if the two had ever played before. His friend said no

It is like that with almost every sport I guess.
I agree. Tennis is only fun for most of people who visit the tournaments. I therefore find it ridiculous that someone mocks the casual fans for not being tennis experts. They don't follow tennis for a job
