Just venting

Sorry, I'm opening a new thread as I feel a little bit frustrated

I was checking GM looking for some info regarding DC (Big Mistake ). Somebody (a Roger fan) bumped all these old threads.
"Why doesn't Federer like Djokovic"
Federer: "i dont trust his injuries...i think he is a joke"

plus few more new threads (started by Rafa and Murray fans)

"Djokovic hasn't won a title since May"

"Djokovic is being written off? How many majors will he win?"

Pathetic, there is no end to this crap. . As much as I like Roger, Rafa and Murray I'm getting sick and tired of some of their fans who have nothing else to talk about. They favorite sport is "let's trash Novak". I guess it makes them feel better.

Why does it feel so good to bash Djokovic now? Why are they so obsessed with Novak? I guess he must be still very good as they are so scared even when Djokovic has been losing left and right to Nadal, Murray and Federer in last few months. I don't get it. Sorry, I had to vent.

We know and sympathise. As Oscar Wilde said, consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.

And on the bright side, the Large Hadron Collider appears not to have caused the world to end.

Have a fun day.

Not yet, they're still working on it.

But look on the bright side, if the world ends so will all of our problems.

Re: Just venting

yeah but the problem is I agree with part of that threads, I'm a Nole fan, it's true but imho he has to change some things and sometimes he has to change his behaviour on court too

I'm waiting

and btw it's true after AO he did not won anything special, imo he had to work harder instead trying to be a public personage (this is important yeah, but working hard is always the first for a YOUNG athlete)

Completely disagree, course.

Alex, leave it. Utter BS. Novak 'fans' worries me more.

Re: Just venting

bumping the first two, yes is a problem...

..but as for the second two, I've seen those for other players as well in the past when it's been a while between tournament victories or it appears a player is in a slump. MTF is first to overreact to everything I haven't actually read the threads in question, but I know I have seen similar ones for other players in the past.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Just venting

Yes, for example "Djokovic hasn't won a title since May" with Maya's (gio's) posts/explanations is quite ok for me. Who wants to laugh...well, let him.

Re: Just venting

Alex Sorry - have been really busy at work all day, and no time to access MTF or read your thread til now

Sadly things like this often happen on the Internet - there is a kind of mob mentality - mainly because people can be bullying, viscious and spiteful towards their "target" without having to face them in "real life". Nole is not the only one that suffers abuse to be fair - GM is full of cr*p against players be it Federer, Nadal, "Boredo", Davydenko or whoever - words like "faker", "doper", "cheater" etc are thrown out by people who would run the other way and hide if faced with the object of their abuse in the real world. Having said that, I do feel Nole is the target for most of the "hate", and it makes me too, but answering them and getting caught into some slanging match is just lowering down to the attackers' level, so I always ignore it

In many ways, it is a compliment to Nole, as stupid fans from ALL fan bases see him as their biggest threat to their favourite - be they Federer or Nadal fans - and many others too And the more people who say they "hate" him, proves he has got into their consciousness whether they accept it or not!

So please try not to let the fools worry you

My smarty Of course that's compliments. Talking about someone every day so much...whoever he is must be very important. But you can see many Fed hatred threads, reborned. Sadly, nothing new.

Re: Just venting

Roger finally gets his moment of glory and the only person the Fedtards want to talk about is Novak? I'd take that as a compliment, it shows they have a lot of fear and respect for Novak's tennis abilities. Nobody wastes time bashing on players who pose no threat.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Thanks Tangy, you have a good point. I feel great today. I was just cranky last night after a long day at work. The discussion about Novak is still going on in GM. I still don't get it but whatever. I'd expect them to talk about Murray who had a great run in New York. Nobody is talking about him atm, I find MTF to be very bizarre sometimes. I'll stick with my decision not to participate in GM. Cheers everyone .

I will . I was just surprised by what I saw because Novak made it to the SF 'only'.
