I have chosen to ignore this thread up until now, because I personally hate these "fangirl" type threads about players' private lives........... but as it doesn't seem to want to roll over and die, here are my comments for what they are worth.
I have met Dima many times - but I would never choose to discuss any conversations I have with him or any other player on an Internet Message Board, because I feel it violates their privacy. I like to watch him play tennis, I like his personality, and I happen to like him as a person - but who he is dating is absoltuely NONE of a fans' business, and I wish people would just let it rest
For your information, sunnyday, yes I have been to Monte Carlo, also to Rome, Hamburg, Roland Garros, Moscow, St.Petersburg, Estoril, Wimbledon, Queens and very many other tournaments too. Some people are not so fortunate and it doesn't make me any more important, nor my views any more valid, than anyone else here, though it may give me more insight into "behind the scenes" stuff than some. If you have been to so many - I am surprised I have never met you. Perhaps I have
Anyway - I know for a fact that Dima does not like to talk about his private life - he is a human being too, and deserves the privacy that all other human beings take for granted when it comes to his family, his friends and his sex life. Can we just give it a rest please?
