Angry Calling a player "garbage"?

Do you think that's something a sane person would do?

Especially when the "garbage" in question just beat the best player in the world 3 times in a row, on two different surfaces.

Re: Calling a player "garbage"?

I just saw a Federer fan calling the 2 times French Open champion "garbage".

Re: Calling a player "garbage"?

Nadal is garbage, that'd only be stating the obvious.

He'll never be in the same league as players like

Roger Federer
David Nalbandian
Marat Safin
Lleyton Hewitt

We're talking accomplished players here with enough game to hold up on all surfaces, regardless of the results of RG Final ... he remains inferior.

Re: Calling a player "garbage"?

people like to get all defensive when their favourite player gets beat (repeatedly)..espesh when its by a player they don't like!

personally i believe it tells me a lot more about the poster than the player they are referring to. If they feel that a pro level player is "garbage" lets see them make a better effort at playing the game! Losers

How do you explain "Garbage" beat Federer on 2 different surfaces this year?

Re: Calling a player "garbage"?

This thread should move to not-tennis section.
I mean it's not a player but fan calls him whatever.

Stan The Paris Man

Cheer for: Wawrinka Murray Ljubicic Gonzalez Mahut Nishikori Soderling Tipsarevic Mathieu Monfils Muller Tsonga Berdych Acasuso O.Rochus Kiefer...
