LOL!

Maria Kirilenko: "I'm happy the way I played at the end of the match, I was so aggressive. I took a risk. That last game was a tough, tough game. This is one of the best wins of my career. I'm expecting a tough match (against Francesca Schiavone). She has too much spin, she plays kind of like a guy. "

I'm sure she meant it as a slam. On this board that's a compliment.

Nadal and Schiavone are secret lovers maybe?

?? That is a compliment. Spin is the difference between ATP and WTA. To say she creates spin like the ATP means her shots are heavy and powerful.

If she plays like a guy, then Kirilenko will get destroyed. Which is probably what will happen in any case. Muginenko was lucky Kuznetsova is slumping otherwise she'd lose 6-1 6-2

Is there any player you don't bash who's not named Henin? Or Nadal?

I like Kirilenko, but glad Schiavone sent her packing. Stupid remark, and dumb to give Francesca more ammunition before the match.

She is right, in comparison she is much more feminine.

"Plays like a guy" is in no way an insult. Especially when it's prefaced with a remark about her spin.

Saying your opponent is "half a man," (Hingis, re: Mauresmo) is a b!tchy and deliberate slam. Saying she plays like one (Davenport, re: Mauresmo) is not.

You seem to have something negative to say about almost any player, and it's always in a patronizing and demeaning way.

<your image>That is wrong on so many levels. But I did laugh.

Someone got some major pwnage today... I assume they didn't French kiss at the net... :)

I made it for the Fed Photoshopped topic. There are some really good ones in there.

Oh, and:

I think I saw that thread - they have Fed Photoshop'd as Zoolander - pretty sweet.

Schiavone is going to have to get a higher percentage of first serves in against Dementieva. She is much better at attacking than Wozniacki.

Schiavone surely has no chance against Dementieva. Seeing her name is a grand slam final would be shocking to say the least.

Bartoli beat Henin at Wimbledon.

Kuznetsova and Myskina won slams.

I've been saying this for years lolz, it's not a woman named schiavone it's just Fernando Gonzalez in a dress!

In all seriousness though, I hope she beats Dementieva in the semis.

I mind seeing a Stosur v Schiavone final.

Afraid I can't. I'm sure guys find her very appealing.

I like her. I wish she would've stayed around longer, because she's a fighter. But, I didn't think Francesca would take her statements lightly.
