What do you want him to do to make you happy? Apologize to you and ask for forgiveness?
Are you seriously comparing us to those who sent mean/nasty comments to Marino on twitter/FB?! If you do, then you are an idiot sir. Mona's fanbase is much better than what you think. Most if not all of us here will always support her no matter what. We will always be her fans even if she loses every match in the rest of her career. We support her because we love her beautiful talent and her personality not because we have an emotional investment in her game or whatever stupid reason you would like to believe. Therefore you better stop making these stupid baseless assumptions.
None of us loves to bash Mona when she loses, clown. If that was the case, then we would be her haters not fans.
you need to listen to yourself:
'Listen troll, you are just embarrassing yourself. No one is on your side in this case....Mona is a smart girl. She would easily realise that we want the best for her when we criticise her sometimes'
you like to criticise but dont like to be criticised. Am i right? Do you think Mona likes the sort of comments ive seen posted?
1. some samples of upset fans
'Wow, don't really know what to say about this...we didn't see it but how the match went sounds awfully familiar. She needs someone to wake her up. Now after Fed Cup this imho could be Rittner like someone (crazillo?) suggested. Her attitude is horrible, one "I don't care" match is bad, 3 is unacceptable.'
'I think she is very absentminded.She just hits the ball but she never cares whether the ball is in or out. when she returned the 2nd serves, she just wasted the chance to be dominated. So irritable, so negative.'
(comment: its some of the fans who are 'so irritable, so negative'; now why was Monas irritable and negative? )
a sensible comment:
';Firstly, Flipkens has been, in the last year or so, in her career best form, and she is ranked 8 places above Mona, so this hardly is an upset, although it would be considered a winnable match.
We also didn't see the match so we are lacking something in being sure exactly what happened.'
'Wandering through the Laberthread I see that Mona's troubles are at the forefront of many people's minds.'
(comment: thats for sure, but thats what happens when we get too attached)
'I think she has very high expectations of her game and if they are not met in a match she tends to suffer a complete emotional crash. She seems to be poor at handling disappointments during a game and she needs to work at this weakness."'
in fact, this observation applies more to the fans!When Mona loses matches she should win, the fans suffer emotional crashes.
Mona doesnt suffer from poorly handling disappointments; there are many cases shes been stoical,and accepted her defeat; she does suffer when she cant find her game. The tete-a-tete with her mother people are using much to much.

'It's almost as if her game is an "ally" who gives her support, and without that ally she feels lost.'
(comment: now this is quite a shrewd comment! it has some merit. It goes back to the old idea of genius as a presiding spirit,which may abandon a person for a while.)
'For the same reason it was psychologically much easier for her to play the doubles in Stuttgart, since of course there you have an ally, your partner, right by your side'
interesting! But shes played doubles before and lost early.
'You don't even need to be a tennis coach to see that, under certain circumstances, she has no clue what to do on court'
(commment: what circumstances? this is like the fan who was irate with Li Na; to whom Na replied she didnt need to be coached by that person...
Mona is quite capable on court under most circumstances, where she falters, are issues she will resolve as her game matures
2. 'eiko (Tecumseh) already said that his post was inappropriate'
yes but that was in response to me comment, as u say, i want the best for Eiko.
so why are you bashing Mona? who a you to take her to task for losing?
'she would easily realise that we want the best for her when we criticise her sometimes'
if i were her, id be annoyed by the presumption of this statement: you want the best? why not listen to her.
So when will we seen an end to the 'inappropriate posts' then?
The problem is her 'fans' want her to win...when she doesnt they get irate. Thats the sort of fan behavior she doesnt need.
