I don't think Serena faked it, Gulzhan. She was really in pain. I would have preferred Daniela to win though too :awww:

gulzhan

I know she was in pain, I saw her leg :shrug: All I am saying the time out was outrageously exsessive in violation of the rules and it is unfair to Hantuchova. Plus, I am sure Serena had only cramps, nothing like a strain, otehrwise she would not be able to play as she did....

whoever saw her demanding the toilet time out 3 games after the rain break, would agree that she is an arrogant person who thinks she is entitled to anything she needs, regardless of rights of the other players :eek:

i just asked SW, why he thinks she is better than Henin? as to trainers and diagnoses, what did you expect, SW? US said Serena had strain, Britain answered-- yes, sir! :lol:

The diagnosis by actual medical professionals was that the cramps caused a strain. :)

Simple logic. When you cramp, you drink water. When you drink a lot of water, you feel like going to the toilet. :)

She doesn't retire from Grand Slam finals or cheat, although I've given up on trying to convinced biased people who cannot see past their hatred. :) Yeah, sure. It's a conspiracy. The Wimbledon trainers are all pro-US. :haha: :tape:

be an example, SW :angel: do i need to cite what you say about henin? with not so much of grounds btw... or about sharapova? with no grounds at all :ras:

i don't hate serena :shrug: i was laughing watching her latest show :o

but you do hate maria and insult her :sad:

admit at least this, please! say-- yes, i hate sharapova, so you have right to hate some player too ;) that will close our discussion nicely.. until the next serena's trick :p or masha's lost match :sad:

No grounds about what I say about Henin? RG 2003? AO 2006? :tape: And the reason I dislike Sharapova is not really gamesmanship. :)

Sorry to say this, but you're looking really silly. If even players like Hantuchova and Kuznetsova believe she was injured, who are you to say she wasn't? And could you explain why she would fake an injury when she went from 2-5 to 5-5 and had the momentum? :retard:

I dislike Sharapova. Never denied that. :shrug:

anyway... richie wasn't that bad today-- he did as much as he could... and in any case, what's important he won his first match from 2 sets down and he won 2 tbs from a player who has one of the best tbs results :yeah: it has got to add him a lot of confidence, it has got to prove he belongs to the top 10 :rocker2:

at least i am going to pick RRH for my paw :o

silverwhite
07-09-2007, 05:05 PM
He must be physically and mentally very tired. As it is, the transition from grass to clay is very tough. To make to it worse, he has so few days to adjust. RRH will get a lot of balls back and it will be really frustrating for him...

Yeah. If he weren't the defending champion, I think he would have pulled out. :lol:

gulzhan
07-09-2007, 05:09 PM
he needs to defend his points, he needs to stay in top 10 :sad: he was getting in there for so long...

well, he went through the first round only in stutgard last year :confused: so it might make sense for him to take it easy in gstaad and then do his best in stutgard? is he in entry list? i have not looked :o

in any case, it's not that important as US TMS and USO...

With Robredo losing today, he has a better chance of staying there. :p

Anyway, I thought it would have been more sensible to skip Gstaad and try to get the points back in Stuttgart. Anyway, Stuttgart offers more points. :shrug: Yes, he's on the list but he may pull out if he wins a few matches in Gstaad. I hope he loses to RRH then. :o

I don't think it has anything to do with tennis. The USTA are trying to help. I mean, US immigrations are a bit paranoid sometimes from the stories I've heard. :cuckoo:

Hello does anyone here know of a good place to learn tennis (group or one on one) in Singapore? Quite affordable too? My friend suggested Kallang. I feel kind of weird...cos like I'm 14 and the beginner classes usually consist of lower Primary kids. I really want to learn tennis though. Where do you guys suggest?

PennyThePenguin
07-12-2007, 02:23 PM
kallang :lol: where the practise courts and stuff are. or sometimes, you can look at the classified section of the newspapers, because people advertise in there. or I think some condominiums with tennis courts actually have tennis instructors teaching the residents there. OR, if your school has tennis as a CCA, not for like competitive purposes, try joining :D that's how I learnt tennis though I still suck at it :p

as a person who was denied a visa, i can tell you-- the immigration services abuse their power for mere humiliation of people! :eek: my friend who works in US State Department told me that all the officers in the consulates are losers :tape: it's not top job at embassy, for evil women with failed personal lives :o :lol: no one can tell tarpi is a potential illegal alien :haha: so why all this circus? :mad:

no, he won't :p

and? :shrug: what a bullshit! :mad:

paranoid :shrug: lame excuse.. they are arrogant and unprofessional :eek:

only once before i had a problem with visa, US, i was sitting in line, hearing all the nonsense the consul asked, all the offensive and humiliating questions, and naturally i was angry and did not hyde it :ras: when it was my turn she told me she won't grant me visa cause i had no right to enter US for 3 years after study on the US State Dept grant :haha: i told her she was wrong, as a lawyer i knew the regs, i could not get a permanent residency visa but business visa was more than logical cause the purpose of US grants was to teach and train specialists for themselves :lol: anyway, i said her i was happy she denied me a visa and i'll report to the World Bank whose project I needed to work on in DC... my friend from USAID called me next day and asked to come to pick up the visa, i was very tempted to refuse ;) i spoke perfect english and certainly was not related to mafia unless she could classify the World Bankl as mafia :tape: :lol: where is paranoia here? pure and clear arrogance! they simply like playing gods, not rare :shrug:

i did not visit the eifel tower :lol: next time i guess ;)

Me! I finished it on Sunday. :lol:

well, i was sure about snape and i just wish harry had more time with him to talk before he died, and i was picturing snape saving harry and telling him about his love to lily :sad: the looking into harry's eyes were very touching though...

i did not like the story on dumbledore :o not at all... did not like her making his family so tragic and did not like him being fascinated by an evil friend :eek: and i did not like dumbledore having this elder wound :o he was a great magician, no need of superpower i think....

i loved harry calling voldemort "riddle" this was the best for me! :worship:

in fact, i expected more deaths :o i mean, it was a deadly fight and i thought many would die, but apparently JKR did not want Harry to carry such a burden :sad: i've heard fred would die but did not expect both lupin and tonks to die too :sad:

when i read harry was a horcrux i was -- no, no, no, not harry please! :scared: so, nice surprise after that :lol:

The Snape storyline was quite predictable to me but it was satisfying to read all the same. :lol:

I think it gives his character more dimensions. A perfect character is a bit boring. :lol:

I actually wasn't that surprised that Harry didn't die. After it was revealed that he was a horcrux, it felt like JKR kept harping on about the inevitability of his death so I kind of expected there to be a twist. :lol:

BTW, Alex (Bubba08) has entered the Mister MTF contest. Since he's the only Gasquetaire there, we're trying to help get the other Gasquetaires and other Frenchies to vote for him. Voting hasn't started yet but when it does, could you ask the group of them on MSN to vote (like you did with PYW)? :p

gulzhan
07-30-2007, 03:23 PM
Bubba is on contest? wow! :rocker2: of course we will vote for him! oi, what about genci? :o well, i think they will vote for him, but i have to have a look at pictures :p just kidding :lol:

silverwhite
07-30-2007, 03:26 PM
There will be two finalists from Europe, I think, so maybe you can vote for two people. But if not, Genci has the whole of Nathii's thread voting for him, so... :o

I think you won't be disappointed when you see his picture. ;)

she is a baby, 11 y.o. only.... :secret: and she is not that good... but she was on tour and they had lots of fun, she also has a short video of her going into central court with the noise of cheering crowd :lol: who knows, it could add a little to her ambitions....

silverwhite
07-31-2007, 05:09 PM
I don't like him much either. :lol:

I don't think he'll be there of Friday. He has to leave for Montréal. Richard left/is leaving today and PHM will leave tomorrow. :p

gulzhan
07-31-2007, 05:15 PM
yep, he probably will leave today or tomorrow..

finally, tennis! it's been so boring since wimble :o but i won't see much of montreal :crying2: at least i'll be back by cinci :)

and no good wta tourneys too :sad:

silverwhite
07-31-2007, 05:17 PM
Don't they telecast Montréal in France? :lol: I'm very worried. I don't know what sort of form my favourite players will show up in. :o

There's San Diego this week. Your Maria is playing. :p

gulzhan
07-31-2007, 05:24 PM
no idea :shrug: i never saw any match when i was there :mad: well, can't have everything i guess :lol:

maria is playing? cool! i missed seing her! does she need to defend title :scared:

i am worried too, no idea how marat will play tonight (will lose i am sure!), how richie will play in montreal, he needs to defend his final :scared: and maria is probably even worse than at wimble :crying2:

did you see the schnider's husband at the chakvetadze match? :eek: what's going on? do they talk about that on wtaworld?

silverwhite
07-31-2007, 05:27 PM
I'd rather be in France and not watch Montréal. :p

Yeah, she beat Clijsters in the final if I'm not wrong. ;)

Richard will probably drop out of the top 10 after the tournament. :o

I didn't see but they talked about it on GM. You can visit if you're not afraid. :bolt:

gulzhan
07-31-2007, 05:36 PM
yep, i prefer real france to the tv montreal too :lol: but i don't like to miss tourneys richie plays at, he does not play THAT often :sad:

i don't like to go to the new sites, i am not a big inet user, but i'd like to know what people say :o what is it? i heard anna's dad was mad when he was asked about why this guy attends her matches :eek:

silverwhite
07-31-2007, 05:38 PM
Actually, he has played 14 tournaments this year. Just one less than Davydenko. :o

Anyway, it's just as well you won't be able to watch. I have a bad feeling about his form. :tape:
