Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Where are the moderators of the tennis forum, I complain about the treatment of Martina Navratilova by the horrible Williams fans, it goes on for a couple of years now and nothing is done about it is pure cyber bullying.

I guess it is okay to bully Martina but not the William sisters race is so sensitive in the US but hidden homophobic behaviour is allright. I know many blacks are homophobic they showed it in California by rejecting gay marriage years ago it had to go through court. Martina is bullied for fun as they say themselves.

I understand your frustration but let's not bring race into it. These WS fans are just crazy people . Of course some of them are homophobic as well but I don't think that has anything to do with their Blackness.

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Yes, I would agree with Anna4077 that race really doesn't have anything to do with it. I understand your frustration as well but I think you have to keep in mind the nature of humans. Insecure people put down other people to feel more powerful and mask their own insecurities. If it's not Martina they are putting down this minute it will be Caroline's forehead, or Genie's chin, or whatever else they can find that next minute. Don't let them get in your head. I'm sure Martina doesn't.

Hi Wimbledon.

"Fans" of any player base usually drive me nuts. As the two previous posters wrote, a lot of this is human nature. Marry that with people who have no sense of history and welcome to General Messages!

There are some crazy Williams fans.
But I also see some crazy Williams haters.

Try not to let it get you down.

At any rate realize that I have no control outside of the Blast From The past Forum.

And here we encourage debate as long as it goes with general respect for others to have a different point of view.

Having said that, "Admiration" threads are just that, for those who admire the player named in the thread.

If anyone EVER disrespects Martina in this thread please let me know, as
inside the forum I can zap posts and posters like Zeus with a lightening bolt

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Changing topics-at least one of Martina's matches from the Aussie is still vieable on ESPN's replay

Go here:

http://espn.go.com/watchespn/index


Then Australian Open (under replay section)


Then find the match. Bartoli/Navratiova vs Fernandez/Majoli

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

A short but nice article :http://www.updatesnews.com/leander-p...nd-by-a-cross/
I didn't post for awhile but i needed to take Martina's defense in GM ,it's was too rude .Of course as i told i'm too old for that ,members in GM are younger than my sons and their tennis culture began in 2000 and more .We all know Martina very well and that's why we like her ,seeing such a good human being attacked and not respected hurt me .
And now she's a bad ,bad coach because Aga lost her 2 Fed Cup matches ... A never ending story

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Very sweet Calou.

I never knew she and Leander had such a personal connection. The part about the cross was very touching.

And talk about good timing for the mixed final! I was very excited to see Hingis and Paes win.

I wonder if he set some sort of record by winning with two women with the same fist name.

The coach-pupil relationship is, to me, very much a leap of faith. It can also take time to bear fruit. We will see if Aga is willing to go outside her comfort zone. I have my doubts.
