Re: Montpellier R2 WWW: Richard Gasquet vs Gael Monfils

I find it funny that Mug Lenders is a Gaeltard since Clownfils is a much (and I do mean much) bigger pusher than Ferrer. And also a worse tennis player.

I, on the other hand, find it funny that you criticize other posters and claim the moral high ground so often and then bump a match thread with the sole purpose of attacking another poster and not discussing the match in any way. Maybe attacking isn't the right work, but rather baiting - only very lame bait with no grounds on reality

MArk how can you root for Monfils? He is such a pusher. And such a waste of talent and a headcase. Even Gasquet looks offensive against him

Richie in 2, without real troubles. Too big challenge for Monfils now.

Gasquet is next №1

So Real Madrid-Barcelona is not a derby?

Two hugely overhyped players. As for the winner, it's a toss-up IMO.

No grounds in reality bla bla come on gael and delpo legends of the game meanwhile ferrer vulture only wins because of opponent choking bla bla I still deserve respect although I troll like an idiot most of the time bla bla bla. You're a broken record mate. And actually, I rarely claim the "moral high ground" - yet you keep repeating that crap like a mantra. However I admit I do make fun of some clownish posters (e.g. you) from time to time... but that doesn't have much to do with morality really.

You have some nerve to accuse me of being off-topic in threads, but whatever. You want my input on this thread? I don't know who will win this match and tbh I don't care much. That's why I didn't say anything about it in my first post, see. I am still allowed to post though.

Yes, it isn't. Crvena Zvevda-Partizan (Belgrade) is. Or Sparta-Feyenoord (Rotterdam), Manchester United-Manchester City (Manchester) (don't know any more, I hate football).

Can't think of any from the same region? Maybe München versus another Bavarian club?

So in short you're admitting that you have no interest in this match nor an opinion about it and you only posted here to attack/bait me, in other words to troll? And this deserves respect because?

Regardless of what people think of my views, at least I most definitely do not post in GM threads with the sole purpose of attacking the OP, but rather to talk about tennis. You are of course allowed to use match threads to push your agendas against certain posters, the mods could maybe have a problem with it, but I certainly don't. However, it's a little funny that, while doing that, you then accuse other posters of being 'clownish' and 'trolls' And no, this is not the first time you bump a thread with the sole purpose of baiting me, nor will it be the last in all likelihood.

Re: Montpellier R2 WWW: Richard Gasquet vs Gael Monfils

Big ask for Monfils, cos Gasquet is pretty solid at the moment. He even didn't choke in the Davis Cup :-)
