02-29-2004, 03:04 PM

i love paradorn
02-29-2004, 04:15 PM
yeah, if he beats streaking hrbaty, id be happy

02-29-2004, 11:01 PM
What a dismal draw for him but Fight!!!!! You kick his ass before now You can do it again!!!!

03-01-2004, 02:18 AM
Paradorn is a confidence player-> obviously now his confidence is quite low but if he manages to get past Hrbaty then I think Ball may just go all the way!! Srichaphan success is crucial for further development of Players/Tournaments/Sponsors/Fans in ASIA-->> I'll always support him & hope that someday the Thai sensation may even manage a SLAM Win or atleast another big tournament like Masters(@_@).

Paradorn is so close to being a top 5 player he just needs to hang tough when the confidence goes or his A-Game goes slightly off. He's still improving but he needs a major breakthrough soon; hope he does some damage this week & makes 04 an even better year than the 02 & 03 where he made fantastic progress!!!

Cmon Ball Mate we're supporting you Down Under!

03-01-2004, 02:23 AM
well, not just cheering for him, even praying for him as well because Dominik is in a better shape this year winning 3 titles already, and winning most matches than any other players on ATP this year. so let's hope that Paradorn can display his best and beat him otherwise there will be a third straight first round lose for the Thai ace and fourth straight loses since the Australian Open.

Stay calm and focused , Paradorn !!

03-01-2004, 09:31 AM
haha, how politically correct of you. It was obvious he didn't mean it in a racist way.

03-01-2004, 12:02 PM
Don't be serious, tangerine. Paradorn is only Asian player on the top echelon of the men's side. He deserves to be Asian representative and ATP would be please to see him out there.

03-01-2004, 12:26 PM
I think so. Prodigy

03-01-2004, 03:25 PM
Why are people so hung up on being Politically Correct???!!! It really pisses me off when people think there's a problem supporting someone who's a great role model for Asians, especially since Asia has been notably without a top tennis player in history, except American-Chinese Chang.
Everyone has a sense of national pride, so long as it's in a friendly manner then it's surely a positive thing. For instance everyone in Australia was overjoyed for Cathy Freeman (Aboriginal athlete) when she won the 400m at Sydney Olympics, because everyone knew she was going to inspire others to success.
Paradorn Srichaphan is obviously a phenomenon in Thailand & they've already created a tournament in Bangkok due to the popularity he's brought tennis in that country. Don't you think that if Ball managed to win a Grand Slam it would increase the popularity, coverage, sponsor interest, inspiration...etc. for other young Asian players even if they aren't from Thailand??
#### Tangerine_Dream; please stop being a wanker & get over your self-righteous crap -> it's obviously clear to everyone that Srichaphan's success is bringing lots of positives to Asian tennis, just as role models do around the world!!

03-01-2004, 08:29 PM
As I see it, Paradorn needs cheering fr any of his fans, whether Asian or not, cos he hasn't been doing v well lately. He seems to be playing sloppy tennis, if his match vs. AA was anything to go by... I w like him to do better... perhaps he could use some additional help fr another coach. His father can't teach him everything. Maybe he's gone beyond what his Dad can teach him... which is fine.

I think it's great that an Asian player is doing so well in the world stage.

i love paradorn
03-01-2004, 09:06 PM
well said aussie
and tangerine, maybe you just hate asians, that's all, that's the way i feel about white people, too.

03-01-2004, 10:28 PM
I think pomnok was just trying to promote paradorn and the asian game, hes liked worlwide and he's like the david beckham in status in thailand so its important to get every asian following when you got a sporting icon like him thats come along, gets the game hugely popular so you get another paradorn to take up the game.

03-01-2004, 10:33 PM
I totally agree aussie, you have to watch every word and sentence in life today as it offends somebody or they pick stitches at how you put it together.

you can gurantee there is no good comedy on tv today as some people somewhere take offence and write letters of complaint so producers have to make stuff that keeps everyone everywhere happy and to do this it has to be weak and crap. so will the politically correct brigade CHILL OUT AND LOOSEN UP...your not on this life for that long so ENJOY IT !!!!

03-01-2004, 10:43 PM
its actually racist to take offence at a paradorn fan wanting asians to follow him as its saying I am not asian so I must be included in your rounding up support.

if new yorkers said all new yorkers please cheer for the new york yankees thats seen as ok but woooooo onc thee word asian or skin colour is mentioned theres tension for some people who call people racist !! how ironic !! to take offence and say someone is racist when they have said nothing wrong shows the offended person has many racial issues to deal with.

03-01-2004, 10:44 PM
GOOOOOOOOOOOO Paradorn, your form has been slippery of late so start getting some wins under ya belt you know it makes sense lol

03-01-2004, 10:49 PM
he could do with playing phillippoussis right now lol, he would lose to kermit the frog the way his results have been going (scud that is)

03-01-2004, 11:28 PM
Philippoussis is another favourite of mine so I would not like to see him & Srichaphan going head-to-head; but since Mark P has just lost 4-matches in a Row & Paradorn has just lost 3-matches in a Row ->> Atleast if they played each other it would guarantee one of these nice guys a chance to break their unfortunate losing streaks!!!

It's a coincidence that both these players are virtually unbeatable when they find top form & hitting winners all-over-court>> but as soon as their confidence dips they really struggle to win even 1st Round matches anywhere. Also Mark P & Srichaphan are both coached by their respective Fathers ->> I think it says something about their loyalty to family(nice to share success) BUT it's probably halting their development as players!!
*Imagine if either Philippoussis or Srichapahan were to get a coach like Brad Gilbert or Cahill;~ that would trasform them overnight into street-fighting hustlers who could win matches even when their A-Game drops to 60%.
....As an Aussie I want to see Philippoussis make the most of his potential with the right coach*.
....As a lover of World Tennis I want to see Srichaphan make the most of talent by getting a better tactical mentor**.
Anyway it's just the beginning of the year >> we'll see what happens in the next 9months(@_@),. please let one of these guys win something big!!

03-02-2004, 02:13 AM
Hey guys, in a way as a Thai I do understand what tangerine_dream said. Actually there is no need to try to encourage "all Asian people" supporting Paradorn. Any people from different nationalities can support him if they like him and tennis is well-known as an individual sport, so I'm not that proud if Paradorn's winning some tournaments but I would be delighted if Ball can display his great tennis during the Olympics or something big like that. Then we can call it "Representation".

Paradorn represents all Asian people?

It's just something that Paradorn is trying to promote TENNIS to his fellow Asian kids, so that they would come out and try to hit the ball. That's all. Don't be that serious.

You know I'm a bit upset here in Thailand because Thai people watch tennis because they want Paradorn to WIN. (which is not a good idea) They should watch and then learn from it and try to improve their game. And that hurts Paradorn because all the pressure is under his belt. There is no need that you are Asian people, therefore you should support Paradorn or Lee Hyung Taik or Leander Paes. That's very funny.

03-02-2004, 07:45 AM
hummm..This week im suppourting Hrbaty...Go Dominik!!!..

I think that he will beat paradorn in the first round in two sets.

i also think that sargsian can make a good tournament..

im in a big mistake??...humm lets see the matches first..

Is a pity that nalbandian is injured..i hope he can recover soon..'cause the TMS events start the next week

03-02-2004, 08:48 AM
It's understandable why thai people feelling so proud of him and want to see him win. They didn't have any sporting superstar like him before.

But finally they will accept that winning & losing is very normal.

If Paradorn still has ankle injury and Hrbaty stay hot, I'll not surprise at all if he lose at the first hurdle again.

03-03-2004, 04:35 PM
Paradorn needs to construct points better. I don't think he is smart enough to make the most of his talent. He just seems to be a ball basher for the most part which is sad.

i love paradorn
03-03-2004, 09:38 PM
When he "bashes" the balls, they usually go in. He really doesn't need to play what you call smart tennis in order to win. Anyways, he can't change his style of play this late in his career. Just like Gonzalez is never going to invite defense into his game.

03-03-2004, 10:28 PM
"well said aussie
and tangerine, maybe you just hate asians, that's all, that's the way i feel about white people, too."

How come no one has picked up on this^^??

03-04-2004, 02:57 AM
No no he makes errors because of his ball bashing. He has moments of nailing winner after winner but he also can get very sloppy and put himself into a hole that he can't climb out of. He just lacks patience and enough brains to put together point construction to beat the top guys. He could get better but I think the one guy is right. He needs a real coach. Someone that will hone his shotmaking, because he is really solid overall, just gets lost out there.

03-04-2004, 03:23 AM

No.. that's not true, at least from the match against Hrbaty yesterday.

Here's my opinion after watching him play against Hrbaty yesterday.

- still relying on his first serve , trying to hit aces (come on ! placement , not just power)

- no patience like Dirk said, overhitting the ball at times and sometimes trying to hit the ball too early and too hard. (That's why Paradorn did hit the ball into the middle of the net several straight times, while Dominik waiting for his opportunities.) That's why he won 3 titles already.

- There was only one game that Paradorn did close out his service game easily which was the second game of the whole match but since then he struggled to get through while Dominik (who was sick) finished off the points easier.

- I would say he was lucky yesterday because the very fist game that he won, Dominik handed the game to Paradorn. Ball did not do anything. Let's hope he can find his best shots against IVan today.

03-04-2004, 06:14 AM
Paradorn has slam potential written all over him. He just needs tactics to and a brain that works for 3 out of 5 set or 2 out of 3. I think he needs a new coach because he is so close to becoming a consistent top ten player.

03-04-2004, 09:05 AM

I really agree on this. Paradorn is a great player but sometimes he's just bashing balls all the time. The one good match I saw him playing was this year tata open final vs Moya, he shots were solid and was patient in constructing points but finally lost it when again became too anxious at the last few points.

Maybe a good coach can give him guides on playing his game more effectively. I'd love to see him climbing up to top 5 one day.

I can't believe I am saying this Dirk, but I agree with that, he has the talent to do very well in Slams, he just needs to move to that next level which requires more consistency.

He needs points now, as the clay season comes up he won't do that well, he can't just go for winners on clay and expect success.

03-04-2004, 10:26 AM
Um yeah George it feels good, you should try it more often. :devil: Paradorn is always going to be screwed on clay. I don't think he really cares about doing well on clay either.

03-04-2004, 12:57 PM
Go go ASIA!!
