No offense, but a top 100 player playing a challenger on clay during the already short grass season is the ultimate defeatist attitude. Basically Starace&Co. are saying “we suck on anything faster so why even try”…

Champion number 1
06-11-2007, 11:39 AM
Well Starace really sucks on grass. hes ok on hard courts, but on grass I doubt hes ever won a set :) I suppose this is a way to keep his ranking steady.

dj_mercury
06-11-2007, 05:58 PM
yeah, weather is pretty variable here and the predictions for the next few days are similar. The rain falled was pretty heavy and this surely was not good for the courts, so is difficult to say if they will restart to play today or everything is postponed to tomorrow.

Okay, I have been informed thread became nasty because of my one sentence that is getting new stories built to it.

I only expressed my opinion of tennis feelings, with no second thoughts public making. My favourite players of all time are Rios and Capriati, if anybody dislikes them, feel free to do so. As much as there are sentences I can make as an anonymous tennis fan on a public board (not relevant if I'm a moderator or not, we are private people here, not getting paid and are allowed to have preferations, we are also allowed to gamble on matches and support the backed ones), I am a tennis journalist and a law student in my "real life" and regarding this, there are issues I would never touch in here. Basically exam session is what keeps me away from moderating the section these days.

Please keep in mind my fellow moderator (CooCooCachoo) removed from this thread posts containing any dope related content, as this is not an appropriate place to throw in whatever posters' fingers are about to type.

There is a forum section called "General Messages" where you can find more threads containing information you might be interested in, as long as we rule here, challenger threads are to discuss challenger scores and support or show the lack of support for a player, not to play the court of justice.

If somebody strongly feels the need of discussing off-court issues in this forum in particular, there is a "challenger chat thread" easy to find by forum search options. Yet no self allegations or insults towards other people or another nation (whether it Poland, Argentina or anything else) are allowed.

Life would be easier if people were reading the sticky thread to the challenger forum, but since they don't, we need to remind general rules in tournament threads once in a while. If insults don't stop, there will be actions taken against the misbehaving posters.
