Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

Do the following players really need their own forum?

Nicolas ' I only play challengers now but still have my own forum' Lapentti
Karol 'I take drugs but am still crap' Beck
Mariano 'my career is over' Puerta
Albert 'have I actually retired?' Costa
Alex 'no-one posts in my forum because I don't play anymore' Corretja

I don't mean to be cruel, but it's a waste of space. How about ditching these forums and giving a forum to the likes of Santoro, the Bryan twins etc.

It┤s something they/their fans earned time ago. You ARE cruel
In this case there┤s no need to take something away from someone to give to others

Where┤s Fabrice┤s forum???!

Should we have forums for Bjorn Borg, Rod Laver, and Arthur Ashe as well then?

I want forums for: Juan Martin del Potro, Jarkko Nieminen and Marcelo Rios. However John Mac wouldn't be bad as well and Michał Przysiężny deserves a thread in General Messages far more than Adam Chadaj.

Lapentti is injured and was forced to pull out of a lot of ATP tournaments this year (yeah, not challengers). Give him and his fans a break.

Was the internet invented when Nicolas Lapentti was good though?

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

I personally think players that are officially retired shouldn't have a Forum unless a special site was established here at the MTF for retired players. But the last time I said that I got jumped onto by somebody so I haven't said anything else about it For some reason here at the MTF I have found that if you don't agree with people that they are inclined to personally go after you instead of just accepting the fact that they don't feel the same way you do

I am glad you agree with me And I do think it would be nice if there was a special place in the MTF for players that are retired

I actually agree with you, Adam. While I understand the fans of these players have done some "intense lobbying" (I use this term loosely), there are other players who are equally deserving of their own forum.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

If the Puerta decision is final with no appeals etc. I do think the Forum should be closed. However, if he is appealing the decision and there is any chance that things could change I think the Forum should remain open until everything is final.
