matteo berrettini is going to halt djokovic's train in new york under the lights in an epic battle.......i think the italian is finally ready to topple the current king of tennis.......time has come to stand up and display the power and exuberance of youth, time to remind the world that nobody can win the race against time........time to leave a signature statement to people that berrettini opens are no longer easy grabs.......

I agree, it was fun but now Djokovic needs to stand aside and let the next ATG take the stand.

Matteo "Mug" Berrettini is ready.

Stop with the f***ing wrestling garbage!

Enough already. It's just as nauseating as people who need to make everything political.

Some of us don't watch wrestling or anime but we do like tennis. I'm seriously wondering what I'm doing here sometimes.
Wrestling was Amazing in the 1995-2003 period, the golden era.
Almost all the kids who grew up in the 90s watched it, it was a surreal phase of life.

I understand the politics part yes. But was it so difficult to ignore one sentence while crapping over entire post?

That's great and I'm very happy for you. But this is a tennis forum.

Wrestling isn't even a sport. It's entertainment with a predetermined outcome. You guys aren't even making good analogies with it.

Enough already.
I support your crusade.

Definitely verges on spam.

Just make sure you take it to the biggest abusers.

I've been ignoring wrestling content for years now and I'm tired of it. I'm here to "Talk Tennis" and in order to do it, I have to sift through/ignore a LOT of wrestling content. I have not seen anything like this on any other forum I've been on, where the content that people come here for is obscured by something completely unrelated and irrelevant.

I like @MichaelNadal but the mods have allowed him to make this into a WWE forum and I don't like that. My impression is that he's simply a fan and not a player himself. And as such, is most likely not a patron of Tennis Warehouse's real moneymaker.

Meanwhile, meaningful discussions get locked all the time. So TTW admin are allowing this childish wrestling banter perpetuated by a non-player, which is annoying serious players who are also paying customers.

I will happily share my order history to prove this point. I've given TW a ton of money in the last few years. Wonder how much money MN, Sunny, et al have spent here to justify their ongoing indulgence?

I don't post any wrestling stuffs anywhere, plus even if I discuss The Vampire Dairies with @Nole Slam / @NoleFam then those just 2-3 comments at max and in random posts, not in any serious match thread or anywhere that derails any serious discussions going on. Plus I don't post gluttony food pics either. @MichaelNadal does that :p

You might be a valuable customer to the forum, but then you should also ignore a few comments in between that are just harmless. Why does a reference in wrestling bother you so much mate? @nachiket nolefam just mentioned Brock Lesnar once and you got all angry on him. Brock is a former heavyweight champion of UFC and one of the greatest athletes ever, you think he is fake ?

Just because you are a valuable customer doesn't mean those who don't spend money on the forum have no rights. If money is everything then you agree with my signature?

Federer is the GOAT for life ?

90%+ of threads on this forum get hijacked by aimless and interminable squabbling about the Big 4.

When the vast of majority of discussions on TTW get overrun by fanbois/fangurlz who have formed unhealthy parasocial relationships with top tennis players, then I think that extraneous comments surrounding wrestling, politics, etc. should be at the low-end on your list of concerns about this forum...

GOAT discussions, while perhaps circular and repetitive, are at least ON F'ING TOPIC. That is what we are here to discuss: tennis and tennis players.

Wrestling is not part of this forum's mission statement.

Not to mention, the GOAT conversations drive a ton of traffic for TTW. People who really want to discuss wrestling are doing it on wrestling forums.

This is a private business my friend, not a charity and not a Constitution.

If I were the owners of this private business, I'd be wondering if all this wrestling talk is really serving my bottom line.

I come here for serious tennis talk because most people IRL can't hang. If I wanted to talk about wrestling or Hitman's favorite action movies or terrible CW/SyFy shows, I wouldn't come here.

lol final nail ? Even if he does beat Djoker, it might not even be a nail because he will play at least another 2-3 seasons
Think about what happens when a hammer meets a sturdy, but ageing, screw.

There can often be a lot of effort and time involved, but the hammer will always prevail in the end.

@Rosstour maybe qe should start a joined petition to moderators to put the wrestling & other unrelated spam stuff in the category of "unallowed", inshallah if they agree, this forum would be much better.

I had the same thought. I feel like it shouldn't have to come to that, but maybe it has. The amount of likes I get when posting about this is far beyond the engagement I get from anything else so clearly a lot of people agree

Berrettini is a hard hitting MOFO but Djoko will prevail I believe. Father Time will catch up to all players including Djokovic but not today.
Berrettini will need to redline for 3+ hours and I don't think he has the fitness to do it. I like Berrettini a lot but Novak is too good.

I equate this match to the one that happened in SUMMER SLAM in 96 when the UnDERtAker jumped off the ToP RoPeS against ManKiND and hit hIM with a ChAiR that was hIDDeN in his SHOE!!!! OMG!!! When i saw that I knew that WRASSLIN' was my passion!

But seriously I agree with @Rosstour . Wrestling is total garbage and the lamest form of entertainment on earth. Sorry not sorry to all the wrestling fans here.

There's a dedicated thread about a user (Sewretch) of these boards, lol.

And if I'm not mistaken, there is actually a dedicated pro wrestling thread!

End of the day, we're bringing this place free marketing. But Odds & Ends was probably intended as a solution for this kind of sh*t.

Everything is not as black and white.

If the forum was only for paid members then the forum would be completely paid and not having free membership.
Secondly, 1 comment or 2 here and there where some member brings a reference to something cannot be that disturbing enough to be completely banned, that would be like controlling the thought process of members like saying you have to only mention tennis players and stuffs related to tennis only all the time, not a word other than that.

While I agree that any business should always cater more to the interests of the paying public but as long as it is not restricted entirely to the paying public, the so called freeloaders also have rights.

You can take it up with the administrators and they shall take action when they see due fit, however officially you do not have any extra rights here more than me/MichaelNadal or anyone, so mentioning that you buy a lot is merely an attempt at self aggrandizement that shall not yield you anything.
 
We should try to at least get wrestling banned here, it's the only right thing to do, it condones violence. If we can prove that posters verbally have fights as a result of the wrestling content we may have a chance.
This is tennis people !

I normally agree that touting your purchases is a wanker move. But, the bottom line/$ is what TTW care about and that is why they lock up any threads that get remotely controversial.

So we cannot discuss the controversial reasons that Becker no longer coaches Nole, but we can sit here while every other thread about Rafa gets sidetracked into a WWE discussion or your Vampire Diaries analogies.

You guys are 30+, grow up.

It's not Wrestling as such that is bad, and also not talking about some fun stuff related to it from time to time, but rather creating artificial connections to it. Wrestling is scripted and tennis is a real competetion where nobody needs a "push" and nobody deserves one if not achieving something out of the own capabilities.

That said, I also don't think Zverev is the guy to build on something. Sometimes he will be there and beat the big guy and also sometimes he will totally lose it and go down to a nobody. I think his whole career will be that way.

But they're not really meaningful GOAT discussions, are they? What parameters are being used to even quantify the concept?

It's just the same people with motivated reasoning, using the same uncritical arguments, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.

Unless you are responsible for the TTW brand, then I don't see why measurable traffic should be of any importance here.

How many threads/.posts have you seen about those Vampire Diaries analogies from me?

1 thread that day had some comments and when you were whining I quickly stopped it to avoid any inconvenience to you/anyone here.

Yes mentioning purchases is wanker move and it yields nothing, if you think it does then do raise a petition to ban wrestling/other talks, I don't have any issue with it.

By the way how old are you? 30+ ?

Maybe we should create a TVD thread in the Odds & Ends section.
I agree, that day when he complained I quickly stopped anyway, today he is trying to prove that he is a more valuable customer and so we should consider him an aristocrat here while we are peasants ? haha.....
