To sokk) The reason that I found your posts extremely unpleasant was not your pessimistic prediction but your absurd accusing and constant gloating over his loss (like "Hahaha, I told you", "I knew it"), as if every one of the rest was boasting about his chance, or the way you were making such a big deal out of almost nothing. Last week you kind of disappeared, while he was collecting three wins to qualify for the main draw. And then at the exact moment that he dropped the 1st set to Seppi, you came rushing here to laugh at others, even though nobody expected him to win and it wasn't like he was blown off the court by any means. You wouldn't know how I felt, reading that kind of comment and watching him fighting like crazy at the same time. Seriously who cares about who was right/wrong about predicting the outcome. We're not on a betting site.
That said, I hope we drop this conversations for good and move on.
I was gloating NOT because he lost, not because I was right either, but because I think some people on here have too high expectations of him, hyping him up a bit too much... like I said I think some fans here are a bit deluded with his chances and his capabilities to beat other players.. he's a bit overrated if you will. It's fine to root for him, of course, and I expect any fan of any player to root for that player and support him, however, there's a fine line between rooting for him and hyping him up to the skies. I mean.. maybe not to have so high expectations of him..
You can say or feel however you want, we all live in a free country. But it probably would be better to be a bit more realistic from time to time, and lower your expectations, not to end up disappointed.. just imo.
That said, I do apology for how I came across.. I stand by what I said, but I'll try to turn it down a notch. Also, as I have mentioned before.. I am kinda pessimistic by nature, I have been burnt by being a fan of Rafa too many times, so that's why I'd rather stay pessimistic than optimistic, that way I won't be disappointed or upset if Vasek loses. but maybe that's just me.
Oh, and about me not being here in a week.. I have been working 9-10 hours every friggin day, plus I have been sick. So yeah.. I disappear from time to time because I have a life outside of here.
The most important thing is that Vasek won
I don't expect him to win against Ferrer, but I expect him, if he plays as well as he has lately, to at least keep it competitive, and to play a good match.
