My post (and goodness, I did not mean to cause that chain reaction, it was a casual comment) - had nothing to do with giving Mirka extra credit, if anything, I was reffering to Roger - in HIS world, AKA - the pro tour, such an involvment from a girlfriend who is also... well, all the things Mirka does for him - is rare. The point I was trying to make - is that any serious issues between them could have negetive affect on Roger's tennis in more ways than just plain break up with a girlfriend would.
That's kinda like Justine Henin getting a divorce AND firing Carlos Rodrigez at the same time, I bet she wouldn't have won 9 titles in a year after that.
a. My point being made earlier is that it is NOT rare. Many women do the same thing for their men on a daily basis.
b. I don't care who you are, once you've been in a relationship with someone for more than 6 years - and lived with the person - it's never a "plain break up".
Look, at the end of the day, we all wish that Roger's private life never seriously affects his profession.......we're all on the same page!! I'm just not feeling in the mood to sugar coat things
