As wta-Amanda suggested this is the continuation of the bitterness of our wtaworld forum thread - which exists Here:http://www.wtaworld.com/forumdisplay.php?f=267

But now we're here -great.

Nymeria

You can change the length of the pages somewhere in your User CP I think... I'm annoyed at having to move as well :( We went from wtaworld to atpworld back to wtaworld and now here again *sigh*

Work was very shit and a very long. I was supposed to work til 5 and had to work like an extra half hour because people just would not get out of the store :( And then it's my time of the month and I feel horrible :o And i'm pissed off because some guy was supposed to come install fast interest here yesterday ( which was my day off) so I stayed home ALL day to wait for him and he didn't come :fiery: And they don't come today either :(

zanychick

Em I don't know sorry, an ex said it to me and I thought it was sweet - lol, no deep meaningful mind behind the posts here I'm afraid

Chesty Larue
08-06-2003, 09:46 PM
David Pelletier is a Canadian figure skater..pairs. He won Gold at the 2002 Salt Lake games. They had the whole big controversy about originally getting the silver medal..then they got the Gold later on.

Anyhoo I think that's what he said when he retired so I was just wondering if that's where you got it.

zanychick
08-06-2003, 09:51 PM
Oh I know who he is, well I didn't know his name but I saw him skate, in the grey outfit yeah? I surprise myself the strange things I remember sometimes

Chesty Larue
08-06-2003, 09:53 PM
Yup that was him :D

Looks like Lleyton might be playing pretty soon..Schuettler is destroying Kafelnikov :o

Intersting news from my town today: four known gang members have been arrested for the murders of Cody and Reymundo. :D I feel much better now, especially as Tami and ended up being right about the perpetrators. I'm glad we didn't have to call Crimestoppers or anything. I hope they're given the death sentence.

Murkofan
08-06-2003, 10:16 PM

I think I can sum it up by saying I'm angry at life :o I'm angry that I stayed home on my day off to wait for the high speed internet guy who didn't show up, I'm angry I had a long day at work, I'm angry that I'm still sick, I'm angry that I have my period :o, I'm angry my surgery has been pushed back, I'm angry my parents are going to Montreal in September without me, I'm angry that I'm angry :o Shall I go on? :p

:lol: @ The Costa Slam :p

Reymundo was just some guy in town, but Cody was a friend of mine, I guy I went to school with who was about 3 years older than me. He and Rey were gunned down in a gang-retaliation shooting several months back. My friend Tami has connections to the killers' gang, and I have connections to Cody's gang, and between the two of us, we were able to piece together who we thought the perpetrators were. For obvious reasons, we didn't go to the police, but the lovely Sherrif figured it out all on his lonesome and just arrested the guys. ;)

Angele

I'm glad the cops caught the guys Marly. I think it'll help a lot of people get some closure on a very, very difficult situation :sad:

Murkofan
08-06-2003, 10:46 PM
Don't tell me Kim lost :eek: :p I'm sure she'll do fine at the USO. By fine I mean getting to the SFs and losing a heart-breaker :p

I wouldn't be so optimistic if I were you, Angele :p Closure in the case of something like this, especially considering Cody wasn't even IN the gang, is going to be a long time coming. Personally, I would like to beat the shit out of one of the guys, Joey, whom we both went to school with. That would make me feel better.

You what I just realize, Ileana? We're going to have to start another soap opera thread here :p

Also, completely randomly, as of tomorrow I am doing my Good Deed for the Year. My sister and LG are going on the Atkins Diet, and as it would be horribly rude of me to eat whatever I wanted in from of them, I'm going along with it for solidarity :p No more sodas :eek:

You mean there's something there to see? :p

I don't know, though. I'd almost rather have a mostly nonexsistant program than one that churns out asshats like Aperas, DH, RodPrick, and the Predators. :p

Nada :p

:lol: When you put it like that.......:p

Ooh btw Jas won her 1st round match on the futures tour today :D In Wrexham (Wales)

Marly regarding my negative attitude towards Kim..I don't know..I just feel like there is this mountain in her way, and that she's doomed to another semi final loss in a slam :(

I guess I've just come to expect more of her..maybe too much :o

The trainer was kneading him like he was dough :p

He's not that bad looking! I thought he had very nice lips ;) Larose..I hate his hair. He's got that stupid shark fin thing going on :p but he too has a redeeming quality..nice eyes :)

Hmm. I agree with you there :p He has very full lips :p Larose's hair :p I was like wtf is that :p With the earing as well & the bandana, he is a bit of a fashion victim :p

Yay Jaslyn! :D :bounce:

Ileana, don't become a Jenglisbe :eek: :p Everything happens in it's own time. I believe that one day she'll win a Slam, but if she doesn't, well *shrugs* she's still had a great career and I'll always be fan. (I know you will too and I'm not suggesting otherwise. :p) I guess I just mean that while I would be overjoyed if she won a Slam, I really don't care too much either way.

There is a reason that I am called upon by Ingrid and Tinne to be a calming influence when Kim is playing :p

I guess I feel all the pressure she supposedly has :p I just hate hearing negative things about her and until she wins a Slam..they'll all still be there. Not that it'll all go away with a slam win..but it'll sure make it a bit better for her..plus she derserves it so much!

Plus now with her getting upset with Justine..i'm even more confused about how that's going to effect her...or if it will at all :confused:

Scott should be happy; Karol Beck won.

Ileana, I bought the coolest book today: The Ultimate Guide to the X-Men, updated as of 2003. It's big, like a coffee-table book, and full of glossy, full-color illustrations. It covers every X-Man, all the X-teams, and all the major villains and storylines. Aaaaaand, most importantly, it was only 25 bucks! :D

I was :lol: @ Dillon..poor guy didn't really know what to do :p

Nice chest though ;)

It's kinda hard to see how he and Georgie go from this to almost doing the wild thing on Friday..I mean she's bound to be pissed :p

Lleyton breaks! C'mon!! Hold now!

Edit: He held :D..LL 5-3

Go Ll :bounce:

My guess is that Georgie is kind of pissed, yes, but that Dillon is able to explain it pretty well and she believes him. Then she figures that, as a teenaged guy, Dillon is going to want sex, especially since he's almost just got some. So she decides to go ahead and mark her territory, so to speak.

At least, that's the reasoning I would give her if I was writing it. :p

Hey Jane :wavey:

Luckily for you in this forum Angele made a thread that has everyone's username with their real name ;)

Hooray for Angele - I shall go and find it later.

Yay Lleyton, this is more like the Lleyton I love :)

Lovely choice of words :p

but yeah that makes sense..

deuce..C'mon LL pull your head outta your ass and finish this set off! :fiery:

Yeah that's probably what she'll be thinking..she's not the most secure girl it seems..

Edit: btw was it just me or did Faith look like she was about to do something else to Dillon :o

:rolleyes: Lleyton..he blew 3 set points and Max broke :(

5-5 :(

Yes, poor Georgie is full of self-esteem issues.

Flonqing Lleyton. :rolleyes:

tiebreak..

I have a feeling he's done for :(

Murkofan
08-07-2003, 02:08 AM
Ditto that. Ll is rather crappy in tiebreaks, first because he didn't have a big serve, now because he is under the delusion that he DOES have a big serve and df's all the frickin' time :rolleyes:

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:09 AM
Change ends..3-3

LL 6-4 :D Set point..on Max's serve

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:12 AM
Woo Hoo he won the tiebreak..7-4 :D

Just as well. Is he trying to give me a heart attack?

Murkofan
08-07-2003, 02:15 AM
Go Ll! :D I hope he let loose with a big "Come on!" :D

Thanks for keeping me updated, lleana :kiss:

Ll and Kim specialize in that ;) :p

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:18 AM
Ll and Kim specialize in that ;) :p

Indeed..mainly cause they both have serious issues with big points :p

Ooh I just noticed the live scoreboard is presented by Casino de Montreal..hehe all our sports are supported by gambling or beer companies :p

Murkofan

I still say Ezel used some sort of Ugly-Girl Voodoo to switch her choking problem to Kim :p Not that I think Kim has a choking problem, mind you :p

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:37 AM
3-3

Let's get that break Lleyton!

Well that Ezel theory accounts for Kim but what about Lleyton? :confused:

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:42 AM
Wow it would have been nice to have tickets to tonight's session. Usually by this time most people are gone..they don't stick around that late..and in a few minutes Lleyton will probably be the only match still going..I bet you could get awesome seats easily!!

4-4

Murkofan
08-07-2003, 02:42 AM
With her devilish ways, Ezel chose to infect Ll as well, simply because he is Kim's boyfriend :p

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:47 AM
LL 5-4

Now would be a great time to break Lleyton..

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:53 AM
Max broke :rolleyes: 5-6 He's serving for the match :(

LL :fiery:

Lleyton :fiery:

I can't believe how he's playing this year.

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 02:58 AM
Mirnyi won :rolleyes: 7-5 in the third

Murkofan
08-07-2003, 02:58 AM
Flonqing Lleyton :rolleyes: What are the bets on the number of times he df'd during the game he lost serve? I'm going to be optimistic and say only twice :p

Scotso
08-07-2003, 02:59 AM

Stats say he double faulted 4 times and was broken 3 times..

Angele
08-07-2003, 03:00 AM
That was heart breaking :sad: :sad: For a while there I really thought Lleyton had him but alas, it wasn't to be. I wouldn't say Lleyton played awful but he sure as hell didn't play great either :( His serve :rolleyes: In the game where he was broken late in the third set, he might of gotten 1 first serve in. Also he double faulted to give back his break in the second which ended up not really mattering for the set but worth mentioning I think :(

Max played well though but watch him bomb out in the next round :rolleyes: He came to net over 100 times and was just playing unreachable shots. But also it seemed like Lleyton was half a step slower than he was last year :( Shots he usually made were going into the net and those great dtl shots were just slightly out :(

You know looking at the USO kiss pic..it's pretty surprising Kim didn't fall over the railing :p I mean she's leaning pretty far over...

Angele
08-07-2003, 03:06 AM
Also Max was being very, very aggressive on Lleyton's second serves. He was swatting those things like flies :o And note to Lleyton: You should never, ever attempt to lob a guy who's 6'5" :rolleyes:

You mean 6'5..cause 7'5 is approaching Goliath like status :p

Yeah right! He tried to lob 6'10 (tallest guy on tour!!) Karlovic!! :rolleyes:

Angele
08-07-2003, 03:08 AM
Yeah I just edited it :o 6'5" but still :p Everytime Lleyton tried to lob him and Max got to it, it was like Max was hitting a serve.

Chesty Larue
08-07-2003, 03:10 AM
mmm indeed..he at times definatly doesn't pick the right shot..oh well..there is always next week..Cincinati I think :confused:

Angele
08-07-2003, 03:11 AM
Apparently, Lleyton has a new fitness trainer... did you hear about this :confused: During Lleyton's first match I noticed somebody that I didn't recognzie sitting next to Roger and he was there again tonight and Sebastien said it was Lleyton's new fitness coach :confused: He didn't name him but he said he had already worked with Roger Federer as well as working with the wta tour.

Chesty Larue

I was thinking the same thing... and it's weird that it wasn't reported or anything. It sounds kind of suspicious but the guy sitting next to Roger has to be somebody :confused:

You know looking at the USO kiss pic..it's pretty surprising Kim didn't fall over the railing :p I mean she's leaning pretty far over...

Oh.....this is my all time favourite Lleyki Kiss. I just love the way she leaned down and he lifted himself up to get to her :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: I can't believe you beat me to that avatar Ileana :p

Lleyton lost :eek: :eek: :mad: :mad: :sad: :sad: I wish I got some tennis coverage on TV :(

Hope your bit better now Angie after your long day at work :D

Wow QG, that's a lot of.......erm....anger :p

I don't think the thread is as bitter now as it was a few days ago :p The animosity has subsided somewhat :p


I think it's resurged Cilla. Lleyton, I know it was tough but God, this is depressing.

Well I can guess who this is! How's your German coming along ;) ?

I am very upset that Lleyton lost. He seems to have developed a sudden crisis with tall players. I don't think he loses points because he lost early in Canada last year too, but some extra matches would have been nice. Sigh :( .

Oh well, go Kim. Go practice a lot Lleyton (go find Flip and practice against him for a start!).

i did not see anything, but from what i read it seems that LL is no longer able to finish points :eek:

some players needs to work hard on that, but i thought that when you got this ability you did not lose it bec it's link to the vision of the game

LL total mystery

indeed; speed (explosiveness?) is essential to LL game; how do loose that (ok by getting older, but i don't think it applies to him yet)

duck
08-07-2003, 08:41 AM
You need to be tuned in imo -your brain has to be moving five-tenths ahead of your legs so that you're on your way to make the return shot even before your opponent has hit the ball. Ll's anticipation and general thinking on court (the best part of his game) has slid dramatically. He isn't dialled in.
