Anyway, glad he's back with a WC. Eastbourne is a very diluted draw, so it's a good place to ease back into competition. I've missed him a lot.

Simon is not a pusher, that's just how he hits. He thrusts his whole body into his shots especially his backhands, so it may look like he's pushing the ball but or course he's not. It's totally non-sense to say he's a pusher. I went to high school with pushers on my tennis team and trust me none of those pushers would be able to beat Fed like Simon has. Pushers are young kids who don't quite know how to hit or lack conventional instructions or coaching so they just end up hitting the way it felt natural for them when they first picked up a racket. We all have seen hundreds of normal average recreational players at public tennis courts who are pushers and Simon is not such a player so stop being silly everyone.

I, on the other hand, have issues who heavy topspin moonballers, that's the worst style in all of tennis!

Simug is a pusher, he pushed the ball, hardly puts any force into his shots (except for the odd shot here and there) and wait for opponent's errors.

Excellent post. Nadal's one of my favorite players, but I hate playing against heavy topspin.

He doesn't even push. He can fall into being too passive but that's when he usually loses. What he does well is using and redirecting the opponents power against them, using the whole court, great shot selection, baiting opponents into the net and then passing them, and also breaking up a rhythm by coming to the net a bunch of times every match. He is far froma pusher.

In my opinion the onus is on the adults to set the tone. What age are you? It doesn't make you even slightly uncomfortable to be having a slanging match (because that is what all Glory's "debates" descend into) with a young kid?

I suspect most people who do not enter slanging matches actually use the ignore button, at least I find ignoring him otherwise an attempt in futility unless you're Buddha incarnate. Be as it may, no one here is his parent and even if we were, treating him as if he's 3 rather than 14 is hardly good unless the aim is to produce a super brat. Plus, as I implied, I'm afraid your condescending tone will only make matters worse as far as Glory or whatever his nick is ATM is concerned, while having pretty much no effect on the other side.

I'm not sure how we are supposed to know how old this Glory kid is :confused:. The fact that he seems not to have maturity/experience/knowledge doesn't necessarily be a clue that he barely past tween. There are posters on here sillier than him, or her (and who knows if it's a she or he anyway) and I don't necessarily think their immaturity is an age thing.

Well you can certainly say that Simon is "boring to watch" and some may agree with you and some my disagree but there's no such thing as a "pusher' in ATP level tennis. The pace is too fast for anyone to execute their groundstrokes by simply just "pushing" the ball over the net. I know you don't play tennis because if you were a tennis player then you would have already known this. I'm a level 5 recreational player and even within my level you can't play by "pushing." Pushing is when beginners run so close to the ball that they don't even have enough time and room to make a full swing so they end up pushing the ball with their body and arm....that's pushing.

Simon is not a pusher. Wozniacki on WTA, now THAT's a pusher.

Roddick is a far bigger pusher than Gilles.

Oh please, most of the seven-year olds I know make far more sense. The fact that he's a tosser is not explainable by age alone. Aside from that, I highly doubt the above will have positive effects, rather than the opposite.

Guys, remember you are arguing with a kid barely in his teens when you get into a discussion with Glory. It's simply not fair to expect him to have the maturity/experience/knowldege required to make a coherent post. Cut him some slack :awww:
No one needs to cut me some slack. I don't make these posts because I am 14, I make them because I think them. There is nothing in my posts that has anything to do with my age.
If people keep in mind his age, they'll be less likely to bother responding to his silly posts and therefore he'll get into fewer debates that end in him insulting someone. Everyone wins.
I don't end up insulting people anymore, or I will be banned. I am smart enough to know the costs on MTF, I have been here for a year and a half, and seen many posters crumble :shrug:
It's okay to debate with everyone :yeah: just important to keep in mind that what might be percieved as immaturity/ignorance/obnoxiousness is actually just the result of the poster still being a child.
I harbour hopes of modship.
That immaturity/ignorace/obnoxiousness has nothing to do with age. Again, it is what I think on the subject.
I like how you're making fun of me being a kid, even though you act like one too, seeing as you think trying to get a group of posters banned because they either don't like Rafa, or like something you don't is funny and also gloating about getting them banned and acting as if it's an achievement :o Don't talk to me about being a child, when you clearly act like one too :lol:

Oh please, most of the seven-year olds I know make far more sense. The fact that he's a tosser is not explainable by age alone. Aside from that, I highly doubt the above will have positive effects, rather than the opposite.
Classy post from a classy poster, as usual :o
In my opinion the onus is on the adults to set the tone. What age are you? It doesn't make you even slightly uncomfortable to be having a slanging match (because that is what all Glory's "debates" descend into) with a young kid?

Planned ignoring is a good strategy.
Maybe it doesn't make them uncomfortable because they know it doesn't make me uncomfortable. I don't care what yous call me, it's an internet forum. Now, if yous called me these names in real life, then it gets serious. And BTW, since when was the argument a slanging match? There weren't any insults whatsoever :confused:

He disappeared. Did he get banned already?
No, I logged off. I need sleep, and do go to school, you know :rolleyes:

I'm not sure how we are supposed to know how old this Glory kid is :confused:. The fact that he seems not to have maturity/experience/knowledge doesn't necessarily be a clue that he barely past tween. There are posters on here sillier than him, or her (and who knows if it's a she or he anyway) and I don't necessarily think their immaturity is an age thing. But anyhow, I think you meant good, so I will gladly oblige.
I have plenty of knowledge and maturity, I just don't show them too much on an internet forum. I keep them for real life where it's more immportant.
Immaturity isn't an age thing at all, don't know why l_mac keeps thinking it is (I mean she's an adult isn' she? :shrug:)

I see your point. Still, considering the tone and direction's the thread taken and how devoted Glory is to saying age ain't nothing but a number (and l_mac to saying it matters), it also could be seen as some irreverent comic relief. For me it was, which was why I mock-genuflected. If you don't think so, I understand.

It's hardly the first sexual reference to make it onto Men's Tennis Forums -- it's the only kind of post I've seen from Doggy, who posts few and far between -- so the people who are offended here should be just as offended elsewhere when sex comes up.

Though maybe the phrasing was offensive, public figures male and female, athletes especially, get sexualized here and there by the media and fans. It's part of the job description. Simon, Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Roddick, and other players have a decent # of female and gay male fans on this forum, some of whom use slash references or make jokes.

Just the other week, the Lopez-Nadal result thread contained a post -- which I didn't mind -- by a (I think) female poster that was sexual in nature, and there were no cries of indignation. I think in this case it's the (hopefully consensual) aggressive gay language that's setting people off. As aggressive gay stuff tends to.

Anyway, how about that Simon. Such a MTF controversy magnet. It should have gone without saying that a thread devoted to his return would bring multiple tempests in a teapot.

I think his return is going to be tough. His climb up the rankings was gradual and very much a learning process the first time around and he can be cerebral when talking about his game, so I'm not expecting instant results from him. I do think he can reach the top 20 and maybe even top 10 again though.

The good side of his prospects is that his much-hated shotmaking is fine in terms of form. His groundies are clean and he hasn't really been hampered by shotmaking injuries the way some of his compatriots have. Like Nadal, it's the retrieving side of his game that has caused injury.

Simon isn't as strong as Nadal, so if he's going to decrease the amount of mileage he puts in on court, he'll have to be cannier and about how he constructs points.
