I'm not complaining. This is an internet forum, and I can assure you I don't take it seriously. I'm definitely one of the few members here who enjoys lengthy and reasonable discussion about anything regarding tennis. Not once in any of my posts did I insult you. I stated that I did not want to go around in circles, repeating myself for you to then reply with the following: "But I see that you've decided to refuse any reading/listening to me and arguing anyway, which is a popular method at the moment, OK let it be."
All of my posts in that thread were constructive and based on solid reasoning, I don't except someone who has absolutely no expertise in the field of physiology to tell me otherwise. It's a shame that you got insulted, maybe your interpretation through the internet of my tone was misconstrued, because it certainly didn't mean any harm.
here's what you said :
And about the 24 year old vs. "youngster", carrying the potential to be more physically superior is also completely irrelevant. I'm not going to repeat myself, so I shall leave it at that.
I have covered every detail of your post in my initial posts, which are based on scientific evidence and educated analysis, unlike yours, so if you'd like to have a sensible discussion, I'd suggest you address my points instead of ignoring them and stating what really is guesswork and in regards to the doping comment, juvenile and ignorant nonsense.
you blamed me for not reading and trying to understand your post, did you try to read and understand my one yourself ?
I had really made an effort to try to bring something new to the debate (maybe I was wrong but I had really tried, I can tell you, and still feel I may have brought something new) and all you could say was that I was redundant ?
If you had given any attention at what I wrote ( Where are the teenagers ? (Top 100 getting older and older)
) , you would have seen that I had agreed with you on the physical aspect but I had tried
to talk of something different through "mental endurance" (which includes being tougher at working), solidity (I mentioned many young players who got injured) ... aspects that you had not talked about imo.
But no you just reacted "what you say is completely irrelevant, I'm not going to repeat myself, so I shall leave it at that"
As for the doping topic, you reacted with your usual reaction ( I saw that in your other posts) "this is a juvenile and ignorant nonsense". Didn't understand that either
I had tried to add something and you just left me there saying that there was nothing new in what I said, I was redundant, juvenile and ignorant
In my eyes, it's the definition of closing a discussion and not paying attention at all to the other one, treating him with contempt.
OF course I could have answered you with "what about mental endurance ?", etc ... but I didn't feel at all that you were opened to keeping on the conversation, besides I had already made a long post and reflexion to receive that
reaction then I didn't feel encouraged in keeping on
PS : I'm sorry for you not being able to give me a red dot, you had given me a blue one when I had given you the link to http://tennis.matchstat.com/
for head-to-heads. Sorry I know that later on the red dot you can give me will not have the same taste
