Why all this bashing?

I mean, come on, rafahaters? fedhaters? safinhaters? and so on... Why cant you just enjoy tennis? Im watching tennis since i remember(to be true when i saw for my first time women tennis in wimbledon and noticed the short skirts ) and i like watching the tennis games whoever the opponents are. Of course i have my fave tennis players but i am not like "e.g Fuck you potatohead ljubicic". I see no logic having a "player tennis camp" and act like you are on war with the opposite "camps"! Whos with me?

Tennis is to enjoy for!

Sharapova vs Mauresmo...

Before game starts:
Sharapova: You are so hot today Amelie.. Wanna go for a drink after the game? ^^

Result: Sharapova - Mauresmo 2-0 (6-0 6-0)

Re: Why all this bashing?

Not a bad post, except for the Sharapova pic.

MTF is about 96.7 percent fanboys/girls and it could stand for Mens Tennis Fanboys/Girls. WTA world is worse and that is scary.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Why all this bashing?

Yes, you are right, all of these sexy men running around in white shorts, what more could anyone want?

But seriously, disliking certain players is part of the spirit of the game. You don't choose to like or dislike a player, it just happens, otherwise you are not being true to yourself. It's all in the way people decide to portray those feelings, and some people are more vocal than others. There's nothing sweeter than seeing your favourite player pummel your most hated player, is there?

You trying to fool people, that you actually watch the tennis?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I don't have to prove anything to anyone. If people think like that, they're probably not worth my time anyway.

The biggest mistake you can make is to underestimate someone. There's no real way to know how intelligent someone is without actually being them.

Nice thread. But the picture of Sharapova on clay is kind of random.

Re: Why all this bashing?

I think this Fedtard / Rafatard thing is incredibly *childish*, not fun at all. I shudder to think what the outside world would consider the average IQ or age level of this board sometimes....

By the way, great thread...telling what needs to be told

Re: Why all this bashing?

Shriekapova would be fine if she had a 'mute' button somewhere.

Other than that, she has nice proportions for a woman that tall, and a cute face.

Re: Why all this bashing?

An excellent post, although you undid your good work slightily by posting a picture of Sharapova who is vastly overrated in the looks department.
I agree that the Fedtard V Rafatard war is incredibly tedious. Not all, but a proportion of the fans on both sides of the camp are glory supporters anyway, that only started supporting either player after they began to win big titles on a regular basis.

Agreed. If she were anything but a tennis player, she'd get no attention at all.

Do you really want me to go into it.

Her antics at RG against Schynder, well the 3 000 000 decibels when it comes to the fake grunting, the plastic and very manufactured personality and the brainless ball bashing, these will do for now.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
