Re: Does Anyone Think That the US Open Is Boring Without Sharapova?

^^ Sorry my dear, but I wasn't attacking you at all. I didn't change my posts, so you can quote my ''attacks''

And if you believe or not, I haven't heard anything about you until now. But unfortunately my english is too bad to waste time with arguing.
And yes I see, shouldn't even start.

Seriously...?

Why didn't you reply this way to begin with?
And contrary to what you may have heard about me, I'm always willing and open to discussing any player.
But not with posters who attack first, then engage later.


And btw,
Why did you completely change your previous offensive post to me?

Sorry. Not falling for it.
@ you playing the victim. You're attacking Maria and her fans in almost every post of yours in this very same thread.

True. Not in this thread.
So I stand corrected.
However, you have in recent postings in reply to me.
And hey, I'm man enough to admit that I'm wrong it in this instance.

Why are you sticking your nose where it doesn't belong?
Plus, I already admitted fault.

Because you were already in here throwing shade to Maria so why are you acting all surprised when some fans of her caught you and "attacked" you

I know. I'm so entertained by RVD's projection, it's just hysterical. Every time I come onto this board I have a good old laugh @ RVD. So entertaining. You should do the same. It's really funny if you look at it as someone who sees themselves so different to how they come across to others.

I am a very intense fan of Maria...getting close to a decade, now. I am seeing signs that you might get your wish.....something about her photos lately....kind of hard to pinpoint. There are shallow reasons......I think it is too bad for tennis that Kournikova was not a better player.....I can say this....Maria is kind of boring without the US Open. There needs to be a solid world class player foundation to justify that level of commercial success....just ask Kournikova. She did well....but not 30 million a year well.

I say again...
I admit fault when shown to be valid.

But let's not confuse personal attacks with criticism of a player.
And I will continue to criticize any player if they deserve it. PERIOD.

Re: Does Anyone Think That the US Open Is Boring Without Sharapova?

No..in fact I can't wait until she official retires so I wouldn't have to see her clumsy ass on a tennis court ever again. The noise emanating from her mouth is disturbing and to watch her clunky movements on the court is annoying. So no; not missed. Enjoy your paddle boarding Maria, don't hurry back.

Doomsday, you don't seriously want to go down this road do you?

As often as you yourself have thrown "shade" and worse against Serena and her fans, NOW you are pretending to be offended.
Dude, just stop.

You can't throw stones in a glass house, and not expect people to remember the damage you yourself have caused.
Just a bit of advice.

Pretty sure you mean the other way around, right? ...unless you've been hangin' out with Maria

Anyway, I tend to agree that she's on the edge mentally regarding what she wants to do. I have a feeling though that time away from the game, a little mental refreshing period, she'll find herself back on court and hungry for the challenge. I think it's good for the game that she remain in the mix. Not because all of the corporate bullshit, but because of the quality of tennis she's capable of bringing.

Also, the thing that's missing is the additional storyline she provides.

Drama is about conflict and tension. Maria provides that. But that's true of any elite player. Unfortunately for Maria, I don't think she would have remained around long enough to maximize the conflict and tension she brings.
