Does anyone have anything positive to say about tennis/tennis players?

1. Great win by Djokovic. A well-deserved first Slam. Your have come a long way and your tennis skills are simply superb. You're the real deal.

2. Great AO by Tsonga. Whether or not he goes on to bigger things, it doesn't matter. You are a breath a fresh air, fun to watch, and the semi v. Nadal was unbelievable. Best of luck the rest of the year.

3. Fed's an awesome player. The competition is establishing itself, but I know you'll win some more Slams.

4. Nadal's game is fine and should have a great year. You ran into a buzzsaw, who virtually no one could beat in that form. You made your first harcourt semi. Nothing to be ashamed of.

5. The AO was very exciting, best slam in a while IMO.

6. Sharapova played great. You put in the work, and it shows. You're moving much better, you can play defense better than before, and your serve has gone from liability to weapon. Kudos.

7. Ana Ivanonic - not the result you wanted in the final, but you've made 2 of the last 4 Slam finals, and you're still very young. Just a matter of time.

8. Tennis is awesome. I've been playing and watching or 25 years. There are always things to complain about and I'm not expecting anything to change. But, the TW boards have been overrun with negative posts.

I just try to appreciate the tennis. I can want Tsonga (or Fed) to win and not "hate" Djokovic in the process, and still commend him on a great win. Same with any match where I have a favorite player.

I'm depressed the first major is over. It's been a great 2 weeks.

I have a lot of positive things to say. For one I am so happy we have 3 contenders for every single title and one brand new face in Jo Will here, so this year seems like its going to be by far the most interesting in last few years if not more - since the Sampras - Aggasi era.
 
I'm sorry, but if you say anything positive, it means that you are naive, ignorant, or delusional.

In order to appear smart, knowledgeable, and wordly, you have to be critical of everything. Remember when you were in high school? You wear black, smoke cigarette, act cynical, all this to appear more matured. This hasn't change. We now drink lattes, and say bad things about everyone.

Saying nice things about people are for little kids who do not know better, didn't you get the memo?

Djokovic and his fans positively annoying.
Thank you. I will just add that I like both Federer and Nadal and would hate to watch tennis without them even if that would mean Novak would win every GS. Tennis first, then everything else.

You are forgiven this one time. Don't mess it up but I just know that you will let everyone down and start spouting nice things about the players. I have given up on you.


Remember, picture a French person, sitting in a cafe in Paris, smoking a cigarette, eating some fromage, and criticizing Tsonga for his numberous failings.
Correction, they don't allow smoking in French restaurants anymore :)

^^^ They can come to Belgrade. We are allowed to smoke. Still. ;) I dont think they would be satisfied to celebrate with us but with 29 players in this years AO main draw,its bound to happen, some French guy will win a major soon. ;)

I like the idea of this thread.
Welcome our greek friend, to what seems to be the best spirited thread here. We love Baghdat cause he brings a new dimension to the game and we love his inside out forehand. Also his apearence is striking, like Aggasi's was in early days of his career.

Hope Bag will not lose hair and hope he can challange for majors like he did in 2006, great first two sets in AO final against what turned out to be godlike federer mode.

Good on you for the thread. It's too much negative on this forum with most of us trying to find some ridiculous things to criticise. IT's been a good two weeks of tennis.
What's up next?
