is it me?

but in the last few months the standard in GM has plummeted. i used to joke about the length of posts from people like sjengster and others, but at least it was tennis related and generally insightful. there are some incredibly knowledgable posters here but where are they at the moment? they have been replaced with posters moaning about philippoussis and his gf. that or just absolute crap about players they dont like and constant vomit-provoking drooling over the ones they do. maybe i'm just being really miserable, i dont know....

Re: is it me?

I think we're just in a lull between the random indoor season, the random clay court season, the random hardcourt season, and Davis Cup

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: is it me?

i do agree the level of threads has been decreasing daily. i've been trying to liven it up with my tennis lookalikes and so on, but it soon gets swept away by "federer beats ......" and "congratulations to federer" or ...... def ......i've only been a member for about 6 months but i have noticed a decline in interesting, funny posts

Re: is it me?

To be fair, the "FEDERER WINS!" threads had some validity last week, as many of his matches were quite close For the most part I do agree though. "Roger df Ulirach!!!!!" does not need to be a thread.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

i know...its unbelievable. what is there to say about a result like that? but everyone seems to think its party time when it happens. federer seems to have some of the most stupid fans. that might be harsh but most on here that support him seem incapable of talking about anything but him. and i wonder how many of them had the same obsession when he was losing to horna at the french, before becoming so dominant

Back then it was more dissapointment at all his untapped potential. And I tended to agree with them back then. His fanbase is bigger now, but he's always been quite popular.
