    It's bizarre.

    The Klahn 'blinkered, delusional, head in the sand, divorced from reality' wannabees are equally bizarre. You included.

    I think its time to leave this thread - the amount of editing that seems to be going to 'big' this Klahn guy up is down right creepy.

    I have to say I'm with you on this. Fedace made some outrageous predictions about Klahn and a number of us called him on them. Neither Fedace's opinions nor those responding should have been removed. If posters can't say what they think either way ... there is not much use in having these threads. Later.

    Perhaps, a mod can tell us why seemingly harmless posts are being edited in this thread :)

    - - -

    What I find odd is some believing that an elite WTA #1 player like Jankovic can't school a college jock like Klahn on groundstrokes. At the time they were hitting (about a year ago), she was near the top and he was not on anybody's radar.

    it was my mistake. i really meant that Boggie was a tour veteran with lots of experience. so that is why he was able to handle Klahn so easily.....:)

    20-30 people have already discussed that video for 30 pages go read about it before trying to start up another discussion on it.


    You guys actually believing that Fedace is serious when he makes those predictions are stupider then the predictions themselves.

    For real, this is getting old fast. I don't care if we aren't supposed to Fedace seriously or not, and btw I definitely don't. His posts are ridiculous, and if we can't harmlessly give him a hard time about it, what is the point of this message board?

    LEAVE OUR POSTS ALONE!!!

    Dude, it's not bullying when you respond angrily to a person who arrogantly dismisses everyone's posts.

    Anytime we try to have a normal thread going about a college tennis topic, you will disregard, make fun of, or completely go out of your way to take away the legitimacy of other's posts. How can you possibly not expect people to get angry with you?

    We all have our favorite teams and players. We all have our own thoughts and opinions, but we all make an effort to go about voicing them in a respectful way. I don't have a problem with Stanford, but I have a problem with you. You time and time again go out of your way to annoyingly belittle the thoughts of others and then when you don't like the response you get, our posts are magically deleted.

    You've got to give respect to get it.

    I took the time to write this and would appreciate not having it deleted. It doesn't matter if it is deleted though, because I'll copy and paste it until the message is received.

    So you were apart of that discussion and you still choose to think Bradely was getting killed by Jelena?

    Not to mention if he actually was trying, that was two years ago and Brad has improved sooooo much.

    I think Brad was trying in that video. usually hitting partners are told to go all out and not take it easy. because even in WTA, hitting sessions are taken very seriously and you get more out of it if you hit against hard hitting men. Brad was probably little surprised how consistant and accurate Jelena was. :)

    Umm... ya and he was getting a drubbing out there :)

    He's improved dramatically in the past 12 months. However, when that video was taken he was a college nobody and she was near the top of the game.

    IIRC, that video was taken during the USO Series in 2009.

    I have images of you holding your hands over your ears and singing, 'Lalalalalalala' at the top of your voice in response to any negative assessment of him, or any suggestion that he's going to be cannon fodder on the pro tour. You must be his mother and Fedace must be his boyfriend.

    10/10 for your partisan support of him.

    0/10 for your grip on reality.

    it is a bit of surprise that Klahn is doing better than Thacher. Thacher was supposed to be next Ivanisevic. but i suppose the injury has a way of messing up the plan..:???:

    Hitting partners are NOT told to go all out against WTA players. Now, you are professing to know what goes on with professional players along with your vast knowledge of college tennis.

    GOAT, right!

    I'm a big fan of this video. This goes to show how full of smoke Fedace is.

    #2 Singles:
    Alex Clayton (Stanford, ranked 34) vs. Christoffer Konigsfeldt (Cal, ranked 111)

    This is in Palo Alto and was the deciding match. If you have already seen it, watch it again. This is better than Last Comic Standing.

    Do I think Klahn will go pro? No. People just don't know how much of a difference men are from women in tennis.

    Alex Clayton is the next Matt Bruch, and Ryan Thacher is the next Alex Clayton. I wonder what future blue chip will be brought in to follow in the footsteps of these tennis greats?

    You're always bragging about Stanford. How is that objective? You post so much pro-Stanford material, I need to post the opposite. There has to be a balance.

    The Aptos tourney where Klahn lost 2-6, 0-6, in the 1st round was a $75,000 tourney where the highest ranked player in the draw was #98. USC's Robert Farah just won a $125,000 Challenger tournament in Colombia where the highest ranked player in the field was #56. Farah also took the doubles title as well. You be the judge...

    He's got a good shot at making a run this summer.

    Great serve, all court player. He might get a wc into the open if he's successful.

    Klahn has about as much chance of getting a wildcard into the US Open as Fedace does....

    He is an american. and he is a NCAA champion. That is a automatic wildcard from USTA into US open. He might end up playing one of the top seeds though. He could give Federer run for his money..:)

    When are you going to quit posting nonsense? 14,000 posts and very few with anything intelligent to say.

    The best player in the history of the game vs. the NCAA Champion who is struggling in the first round of challengers.

    It's a real toss up, but I'm going off a hunch that I should stick with the Vegas odds. But then again, just a hunch.

    ^^^ Why post nonsensible stuff in the first place? It just ruins the genuine information and discussion cropping up in this thread. Instead of an genuinely interesting discussion about an up and coming college player, you get this deformed mess of a thread due to his 'mental' abberations. It incredibly disrespectful to the others who have spent time and effort posting about college tennis. Anyone else who spams and trolls to the extent that he does would get banned.

    I don't think anybody is truly upset with him. A lot of us have been dealing with his shenanigan posts for awhile now. It's just gotten to the point where I just make fun of him every time he posts stuff. It's a pretty good practice.

    I'm really surprised Farah took this challenger. He was a top college player, no doubt, and I thought he might have a chance playing pro but I didn't think he had the game yet... very impressive!

    It's surprising to see Klahn struggling in the first round of challengers and Farah winning the title... they were very closely matched just a few months ago in college, Klahn winning over Farah a couple times if I'm correct.

    $16,000 for losing in the 1st round of the main tournament. Khlan has no chance of getting through the qualifiers. Just too many guys who are better and hungrier than him. A minnow in a pool of big fish springs to mind. Even if Khlan were to beat Dayne Kelly - and that's a BIG if - he'll be facing Bozoljac and then probably Kunitsyn in the 2nd and 3rd qualifying rounds - he'll get bageled again...even double bageled by those guys.

    Where are Ryan "The next Ivanisevic" Thacher and Alex "The only college player" Clayton this summer? I would've thought they would want to showcase their pro-like ability before demolishing all competition towards the 2010 NCAA Championship.
