What is the secret of tournament/race skippers in all sports? Serena/Marit similarity



Serena Williams (USA). 30-time grand slam champion. 4 time olympic champion. Only tennis player in history to have both singles and doubles career golden slam. Skipping or withdrawing in early stages in almost all premier 5's. Skipping Indian Wells even after receiving apology. Skipping Asian autumn swing and Arabian spring season. Participating in laughtable number of premier tournaments. Never won international title.

10 of her last 15 tournaments won in singles were a Grand Slam/Championships/OG tournaments.

CONTRAST:



Marit Bjoergen (NOR)

3-times olympic Champion in cross country skiing
7-time olympic medallist
8-time world champion
14-time world championships medallist
3-time world cup crystal globe winner
record holder- 57-time world cup race winner

Skipping 2-3 of a 5 month cross-country season to prepare for world championships or major starts, allowed to use an asthma drugs as her all teammates, unlike only asthma-free member of cross country elite, Justyna Kowalczyk of Poland, which trains much more time in summer than her (confirmed).

What is the secret of tournament-race skippers in all sports that they have enormously larger muscles than all other athletes and yet they have 10x more stamina after long matches/races? Shouldnt we make a rule that bans a skippers from a major tournaments like slams in tennis or world championships in other sports for skipping 1/2 of the seasons?

Isn't it not fair for athletes that participate in almost every tournament/race with a threat of $$$ penalty for withdrawing? They are fully rest and crush exhaused rivals...

Where do you see abuse? I asked other users why they are both 2x like other rivals and they win almost all they participate...

Considering posters here could fling flaming turds at each other endlessly and still have green rep, while yours is well into the red, leads me to believe your posting history has ALREADY been wildly less than stellar prior to posting this particular thread which is obvious baiting, obvious trolling, and obviously will be closed soon.

So call it a hunch.

Because i have a courage to write about a biggest phenomena in sports and to have a serious discussion about the problem which it makes?

They can't ban me for not abusing and for wanting a discussion about serious problems...

...do you actually though? Because I read the OP. And it is actually a stupidly cowardly post, considering you never once say what you mean (and yet still completely lack any subtlety or wit about it).

Cowardice is the opposite of courage, BTW.

Is this because you are still upset about Aga not playing a tournament in Poland?

Quality thread. Is there any poster on this board with more posts and still a red rep bar?
