LISTEN U BLOODY MOTHERFOCKING RETARD OF A FANBOY. U BETTER SHUT UP THAT SH!THOLE OF A BIGMOUTH BEFORE U CALL SOMEONE LIKE shrapi A RETARD. U BETTER LOOK AROUND BEFORE U POST SOME NIHILISTIC BULL 'COS WE LIKE DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS HERE, SH!THEAD(AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT...EAT IT). WITH THOSE 17 NONSENSE-POST U'RE A NOBODY, A PIECE OF CRAP AND WE NORMALLY DON'T RESPOND AT A PILE LIKE U. BETTER NOT FOCK WITH ME "COUNT", U COULD REGRET IT. GOT IT??? [:@]


[/quote] Hey, give the guy a break, I know that what he said was stupid, but it is kinda hard to keep you're head at a time like this, especially when on this site, some people are giving her so much hate, and seem to enjoy doing so.


Shrapi is a respected member no doubt, but let's admit it, implying that Maria doesn't eat properly so as she can sustain a career in media was an unreasonable criticism, afterall, Maria has had pretty much the same physique throughout her career, so it seems somewhat irrational to accuse her body as being the reason for some of her losses.


NB: A message to all you guys, beat the haters with reason and rational discussion not insults.


[/quote]INSULT??? Like BILL said to Beatrix KIDDO "I Overreacted". Maybe a tiny "overreaction" there, no insult (L)[;)][/quote]


Cool.


BTW, the last sentence of my post wasn't referring to you at all, I was referring to something completely different there.[:)]

I honestly don't mind people criticisning Maria, but only when those crticisms are reasonable.


Maria knows that the failure of her season has been that she has not got the points when she needed them -- set points against Serena, break points against Justine, match points against Kim, and countless break points against Caroline. Failure to perform at the big points has been the death of Mara's year. This is a reasonable criticism supported by fact. how mnay times has Maria emphasised the point that she 'did not take her chances' in matches?


However, to say that the game has moved past Maria, I feel, is not a reasonable suggestion. You simply don't have so closes matches against Justine and Serena is you are past it like some people suggest. Likewise, it is unreasonable to suggest that Maria lacks dedication. We can all see how much it hurts Maria when she loses; if she did not care, then she ought not to look so dissapointed when she loses. Maria is no Vaidisova.


The difference between the good and the great, is that the great are willing to get back on the horse every time they fall. Did Venus crumble when she went four years without a slam, and when people were writing her off, to claim three more Wimbledon titles? Did Mauresmo and Schiavone crumble when for all intents and purpose it looked like they would end their careers without ever making an impact on the sport? Did Kim crumble when people wrote her off for as a contender after giving birth? No, no they didn't, because these women are great, and that's why they will always be better than these internet commentators who find nothing better to do with their times but to spew hate. Even the girls ranked 500th in the WTA are 1000 times the people than these haters will ever be. I have every faith in Maria, so to those haters, I am immune to their poison. History has been decided by people who overcome those who hate and criticise.

Yea great post and I mostly fully agree!!!!! Maria is going to work even harder now and I expect that she will get back to the top sometime.


    She was fidgety and nervous at her post Princess press conference because she was extremely upset and disappointed!!! So get off her back Philli. I also think that she is only a few important points away from beating Serena, Henin and Caro in the last grand slams, so the game has not passed her by. I tghink the wind was also a big factor in her loss to Caro, as she couldn't manage her points to accomodate it, as she needed to go for it to get the ball past Caro and thus it affected her more. I think when she next meets up with the Princess in better conditions, she will have revenge.


   Quite the thread folks!!!!! Now, now kids don't fight!!!!! I think Maria will do well in Tokyo and China!!!

Masha is my #1!!

These are from Elena's site. She jumps Li and Henin is out, then Elena moves to the 10th place. A win or at least some semi's will be necessary, but i see her play that YEC.[H]

[quote user="yvonne08"]God Bless Sharapova in her next match. After her disappointing US OPEN. I am sure she's a bit down right now. But she'll be able to cope up with it. She's getting better and better. I expect that next year, she'll come out firing again. So sure of it. Too bad, I don't think she can join YEC this year. :(

Yeah, God bless her! [A]

No worries, I'm sure he was screened. Security around celebrity clientele in those places is tight. Gotta be--don't call it LA Babylon for nothing. [;)] And she's got Sasha right there.

Ishizu received Qualify Wild Card and this tournament will be her first participation of SEWTA Tour Tournament. Kurumi Nara and Misaki Doi, both age 19 will also participate Qualify. These young players will bear future of Japan's Women's Tennis."

There'd be no point in her staying in and moping around -- if anything, dwelling on past failure/misfortune only makes you more prone to choking. You can't change the past, so there is no point in worrying about it.

I agree with Liquid... no worries about the past .... make the future a pleasant one....  and i think in one way it is a good to see her happy ...cuz this means she managed to move on after her loss and look ahead with confidence to the next tournament. :)

SERENA CUTS OFF LEFT FOOT IN FREAK ACCIDENT


Reuters - Tue, 14 Sep 14:51:00 2010


The world's number 1 tennis player suffered another freak accident today while celebrating the birthday of one of the players of the Miami Dolphins.  Apparently while she was cutting the cake, the knife slipped out of her hand, fell to the floor and bounced thereby cutting off her left foot.   She was rushed to the Medical Centre at the Stadium where doctors managed to re-attach the foot.  A spokesman for the Dolphins said ' We were able to re-attach all the nerves and with a new advanced method of cosmetic stitching we were able to repair the skin damage so that, in three weeks time, when the stitches are removed, there will be no sign of a scar.  Serena said she was really disappointed that she would not be able to play any tournaments until the YEC.
