WTF do you get off comparing yourself to him?
I am not a pro tennis player, mate. And I am certainly not comparing myself to him. Doing so would be insulting to me.
these are world class athletes- yes on MTF this means they are mugs if they dont win a slam but in REAL life- getting past round one of a slam if a fucking real achivement- it means you put years of hard work into the sport
Agreed. However, this sport decrees that players like Stakhovsky do not deserve the amount of money that this guy thinks he deserves...he can always go play golf
But of course that would conflict with the whole "playing the sport for the love of it" bullshit he is spewing, despite being just another guy out to make a buck.
MTF makes out winning a MM tourney as a BAD THING
he fucking won a world class tournament with world class athletes and he's treated like shit on this forum
Once again, it's not MTF that decides his salary. It's the sponsors, organizers and fans who vote with their wallets. I am sorry, but I would not pay my hard earned money to go see a final with a couple of journeymen. Public cares more about Federer, Nadal, Djokovic. Even WTA players like Sharapova, Williams, Clijsters will easily get a top spot over a scrub like him.
this site is the most elitest bunch of fucktards around
Incorrect, MTF is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. It's the public and sponsors that decide... And someone like Stakhovsky has not enough draw power to even outdo an average top 10 WTA player. Thus he gets paid less. Tennis is an elitist sport. You are either everything or you are nothing
if you're not the top 4 you're basically no one here
Correct. You may not like it, but it's the truth. The top 4 are there because they win slams, masters and destroy pretty much everyone. People want to see winners, not useless scrubs. Sorry if that offends your sensibilities
right now if my future children showed promise at tennis
NO WAY WOULD I ENCOURAGE IT- because the risks outweight the rewards
if the ATP fed the 50-300 ranked players and let them make a living out of tennis i would have been on tour myself and so would my children
