Roddick, Coria, etc, etc..

I am perprlexed about the comments I read here about Coria and Roddick... Coria might never become number 1, Roddick might have won a shitty tournament in San Jose, but they have achieved much much much more than most of you. Have you ever played tennis? have you ever won a tournament at anything (soccer, pool, tennis, golf, rugby, whatever)? are you the # 5 in the world in what you do? Do you know what it takes to be # 5 in the world at anything?
Everyone might have their own fav. players, but they are all great players.

So I can dislike Coria all I like and don't care about his achievements. A bit of hating never hurt anyone

Julio, in any case, you don't pay much attention to the threads that makes Leena, she is all a "celebrity" here in MTF

Re: Roddick, Coria, etc, etc..

I'm #1 in the world in tennis trivia!

And I'm #8 in the Western New York tennis rankings!

I'm also #1 in your hearts!

I've even faked cramps on court like Coria and Justine!

Re: Roddick, Coria, etc, etc..

hyung taik lee has also achieved a lot more than most of us but people dont bang on about him. its good to have a bit of rivalry it'd be boring if everyone on this forum just heaped praise on players coz they're professionals.

You'll get used to it and learn which posters to take seriously, which to ignore, and which to revere as a Goddess despite their obvious insanity.

Love you, Leena!

RPH, you're right that you can dislike Coria. But you're wrong that hating never hurt anyone. Ask the families of the innocent people who were killed on 9/11 and countless other acts of hatred.

I think he was talking in a sporting context tenny.

"In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed and they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, 500 years of democracy and peace and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

Does it mean that only Sampras, Borg, JMac, etc are allowed to comment on players?

PMac, MaryJo, Chris Fowler, Brad Gilbert and whoever in Eurosport, etc better shut up?
