Re: Canadian Players 2

im back..had to take a little break and focus on school there for a while

would just to make a few observations:

1. nice to see milos doing so well,m however unexpected(for me) it may have been

2. peter...what the hell can i say? for a while i thought that the pressure of being the top canadian was starting to hinder him, i thought maybe he felt like he had to do something but now with the spoitlight on milos he still isnt doing anything. Dont know when he will get out of this slump or if he really is destined to just fade away.

3. frank..just dissappointed . i expected him to be top 100 again by now and frankly he's pissing me off

4. vasek has been making slight progress but he still hasnt had that win that truly makes you say WOW

5. philip..i actually expected him to be able to do better in the challengers but from what i have been able to see he has struggled

Agreed, I think he should go back and play a few futures, get some wins under his belt.

Re: Canadian Players 2

You may have noticed that Canada will not have a sub-forum this year again (though Milos gets his own)

http://www.menstennisforums.com/810-italian-player-forum/

What an awful, awful decision. There is no justification for this. 75% of the European country sub-forums have so little activity you wonder why they are there. 50 people approved the option of a Canada sub-forum - you have to go back months in most Euro sub-forums to find 50 different posters. Why have a poll if a result like this is denied?

Some days I really dont understand MTF. But whatever - complete Euro-bias as usual we have to live with

Re: Canadian Players 2

Sorry

Try again in the post Wimbledon polling, though.

As it stands, it's nothing to do with euro-bias. You might have a lot of posters but not a lot of elite players to talk about. Other countries who now have very quiet forum probably did have much more activity in the past. Not saying, no - never - just not sure what the need is for one right now - but willing to be persuaded

Scoobs respectfully - I dont think there is any point because this decision wasn't based on facts. The activity on Canada threads has exceeded for the past two years the current sub-forums of most of the Euro countries that have one. There are 10-20 regular posters (daily) - and there were before Milos became a rising star - plus many others who post off and on - and not just for Milos. Additionally, we're adding new posters weekly.

I mean, look at this and tell me how Canada doesn't deserve one

http://www.menstennisforums.com/139-brit-pack/

ONE post in the last week.

Or this sub-forum

http://www.menstennisforums.com/435-romania-tennis-chat/

No posts since April 12

Or this sub-forum

http://www.menstennisforums.com/385-slovakian-tennis-chat/

No posts since January 22

To me, this is a clear decision based on the fact that Canada still isn't taken seriously as a tennis country. Because based on activity here, the decision has absolutely no merit - and it takes 5 minutes browsing the sub-forums to come to that conclusion. Virtually every Euro country has a sub-forum while the rest of the world either is denied one or else is grouped as an entire continent.

Thanks scoobs.

Re: Canadian Players 2

Is there anyone who goes for starting Vasek thread? I'd love to though, it wouldn't be a good idea, as I'm not a Canadian nor a native speaker.
