Ugh. Espn 2 gave a recap of today's men's matches at the start of their primetime coverage but didn't give a recap of today's women's matches.

About 20 minutes later Espn 2 finally gave a recap of today's women's matches. It didn't seem to last as long as the recap of today's men's matches though.

Players who would rather punch each other on the nose than shake each other's hand....it had something, but looking back now it was also a bit silly. Besides, that attitude has now been brought to a whole new level of excellence by players' fans on General Morons.

It's probably not that easy. Even Federer has never really figured out what to do with Nadal's topspin balls to his backhand. I too am a bit disappointed for Vera though.

exactly and that's the thing really...it was alot more interesting when it was just the player's themselves playing "the game" but now with (G Morons)
attitude/drama has been taken to a pathetic level that makes me sort of hate it.(and sometimes go there and make fun of it at the same time)

I always could sort of sense that with Maria. Aside from the grunting that aggravates me, her "distant, cold" demeanor was a main reason I could never really get into liking her.

For certain it is not that easy but still, Vera is a great player and it absolutely baffles me that Stosur has such a hold over her.

I'm not a big fan of her game, but I admire her fighting spirit. Often going into one of her matches I want the other girl to win, but she usually wins me over and I start rooting for her because she wants it so much.

Yes I agree that her "fighting spirit" is her most admirable quality. Agree also about the game. I've always been a fan of players like Caro, Jen and Kim who can be aggressive if need be but more importantly can play awesome defense, getting alot of balls back and moving around the court with great speed. With Maria...her shots are awesome and penetrating when she is "on" but her lack of defensive skills were always a downer for me. Same story with Davenport. Just hard for me to be excited about watching someone who will almost always lose the point once they are on the run.

It's a pleasant change to have a group of generally calm and respectful fans here in this section. Its not quite the same in all the player sections.

As much as I respect most players, some fan groups... well what can you say really. I guess they would mistakenly call me a pussy

Well, when I say that I think that many posters on TF are mentally disturbed I don't mean it "in a manner of speaking" - I mean it for real. That guy who stabbed Seles probably would have been a poster on TF if it had been around in those days. And some of the posters there are now are insane enough to do something similar if the right buttons are pushed and they would have the opportunity.

Dear god :/
This is the first and last time I venture in that section of the board, they are a disgrace to Serena's name(at least the posts after the one you quoted)..
