OMG...Players DO read TF

I know this has been speculated in the past...but Courtney Nguyen confirms in the latest No Challenges Remaining podcast that a lot of players, especially the younger ones, DO, in fact come onto TF and read stuff about themselves...

scroll to about 00:26:50

i was completely shocked when I heard TF being mentioned!!! i really didn't think any journalists paid attention to TF, let alone, players! With that said, def should try to be considerate and mindful of what's being posted...especially about the younger players...

Pretty stupid of them.

And it's no secret many "journalists" get a lot of their information from TF.

Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

How is this surprising that some of the younger more inexperienced players may look themselves up on Google or whatever and find a topic about them here?

If they have any good sense they'll know to avoid this site after reading some of the more idiotic posts.

that's true, but i guess i'm just surprised that TF is this known entity that players, journalists, media, etc. actually know about...just assumed that they wouldn't really give it much attention...

What a waste of time, TF's full of !&$%#@, No wonder most of them are flopping left right & centre because they take stuff seriously & it gets inside their head

Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

It's not surprising considering there are players who used to be active members of the forum (e.g. Jamie Hampton). I mean, if a player was to google their own name, there's a good chance a thread on TF is most likely to pop up in the first page.

Dinara Safina has stated that she has browsed her player's forum only to end up reading her own fans bitching about her.

Re: OMG...Players DO read TF

nthing new. there's no doubt players - and tennis commentators - read their GM, MTF and TT. These are the biggest tennis discussion sites. Loud mouth Shriver definitely gets ideas from GM. Over on TT, it was even once rumoured that one Brad Gilbert was a poster.

Of course they do. And for the ones who do not their agents do it for them.
