Isn't it interesting that Wimbledon now leads the favorite poll, and is the lowest in the least favorite poll....  :innocent:

 :rofl_2: Good isn't it

Here's the only interesting upshot

Wimbledon 7
Not Wimbledon 14

2 to 1, that's pretty telling. It just makes me  :rofl_2: in your face when you talk about Wimby the way you do, almost insisting everyone believes the same.

You keep hanging on to that Wimbledon vs every other slam mantra. It's not Wimbledon vs every other slam. It's a four way poll.

Looking at it your way we can also say it's US Open has 6 fans and 14 haters. The French has 3 fans and 20 haters. Oh, and Wimbledon now has 9 fans to 14 haters. But really it's 9 fans and 1 hater.

Wow, aren't you my b*tch! of late :laugh-bounce:

Look, if I wanted to use this poll to compare the votes for Wimbledon to the layers of sh1t between your years, you'd have a point. But I can (I really can!) use the results of this poll to draw other inferences.

Capisce? (I really don't care at this point what you do or do not understand. I cannot help you here. You seem to be stuck on stupid.)

Anyway, I've said this much in bits and pieces, but I will state my observation/inference clearly and concisely. You may choose to read it, it should sound familiar.

How many times have we seen this poll? How many times have you/I seen this poll elsewhere? How big a margin did Wimby win in each previous poll ever take? A large margin. The results of this poll speak to how people's attitude toward Wimby has changed over the past couple of years. And this trend isn't likely to reverse itself as grass court tennis becomes increasingly irrelevant.

Chil-lax, 3 of 7 don't count. You goofs can't be objective.

And just remind us which one the goof from Chiago picked? Surely it can't be 'your home Slam'?  :)~

RG, should have looked that one up before you asked. The ROW can be objective. Brits are still tethered to the teets of the Queen. Your fondness of pomp and pageantry serves as a symbiotic bond to Wimbledon that can never be severed.

Another moment to join in on. Someone just got TOLD (by Babblelot) :)) :rofl_2: :yahoo: :lol-sign:

Hey, what time did you get out of bed this morning? That's unecessary to come in and sware at someone else on a nice site that should be on tennis and not killing or arguing with each other! And I don't like Wimbledon that much either but why are you so Anyi-Wimbledon and so badly wanting to be right? :confused1:

Dmast has something up is butt and is an irritant once again. I may be anti-Wimby, but, as you've done here, Dmast invites me to respond by commenting on everything I say. If he chooses to mangle what I've said and put words in my mouth--he did this in a political thread the other day--I will set things straight. At some point, I'm not concerned about his feelings.

In the current format...Grass tennis is irrelevant, the ATP instead of actually having a grass season........they stick to hardcourt events; can we say cheap?

one MS event or 1000 whatever you wanna call it on grass after Queens and before Wimbledon would force today's players to develop their game to accommodate to this surface...........but NOOOOOO let's not mess with the calendar; look at the clay season...is a joke, in 4 weeks they have 4 BIG tournaments......that doesn't happen on hardcourts.

Put me in charge of the ATP and ITF....I will fix this s**t with common sense!

One of my peevs with Wimbledon is that they are a sacred cow in their own minds. If you can get them to move their gd tournament to accomodate a legit grasscourt season, my attitude could change significantly. But grasscourt tennis remains the ultimate "specialist" surface. It never was clay (RG). That's just what some idiot said and the masses--mostly Americans--repeated over and over because they don't appreciate the fact that clay is the surface of choice of the ROW.

Totally agree.........when you f**k up the players themselves to preserve middle sunday tradition despite the forecast calls for more rain on Monday....well, you get the point!

The nature of grasscourt tennis and the maintenance required to up keep the courts makes it second rate to claycourt tennis and that's why clays is the surface of choice.......if you want to learn and master all the dimensions of tennis, you do it on a claycourt NOT on grass!

BTW, I'm happy to see the Americans giving more emphasis to training on clay down in Florida........all those academies figured out what the top players in today's tennis have in common.

Sadly, however, all of those courts are that second rate, American har-tru green crap. I can't believe someone like Chris Evert, 6 time RG champion, decided to go with har-tru. I know of only one tourney, Houston, that brought in red clay. I don't know what kind of shap it's in now, but initially it was attrocious. But I don't see why the academies aren't red clay. Har-tru must have some kind of exclusive contract, I don't know.

Probably is cheaper than real clay?

Wow, aren't you my b*tch! of late :laugh-bounce:

Look, if I wanted to use this poll to compare the votes for Wimbledon to the layers of sh1t between your years, you'd have a point. But I can (I really can!) use the results of this poll to draw other inferences.

Capisce? (I really don't care at this point what you do or do not understand. I cannot help you here. You seem to be stuck on stupid.)

Anyway, I've said this much in bits and pieces, but I will state my observation/inference clearly and concisely. You may choose to read it, it should sound familiar.

How many times have we seen this poll? How many times have you/I seen this poll elsewhere? How big a margin did Wimby win in each previous poll ever take? A large margin. The results of this poll speak to how people's attitude toward Wimby has changed over the past couple of years. And this trend isn't likely to reverse itself as grass court tennis becomes increasingly irrelevant.

Hey, what time did you get out of bed this morning? That's unecessary to come in and sware at someone else on a nice site that should be on tennis and not killing or arguing with each other! And I don't like Wimbledon that much either but why are you so Anyi-Wimbledon and so badly wanting to be right? :confused1:

Dmast has something up is butt and is an irritant once again. I may be anti-Wimby, but, as you've done here, Dmast invites me to respond by commenting on everything I say. If he chooses to mangle what I've said and put words in my mouth--he did this in a political thread the other day--I will set things straight. At some point, I'm not concerned about his feelings. Can I say that?

I really don't get your anger. You are the one with something up your butt. I am just pointing out that you are interpreting the results to suit your own opinion, or agenda. I'm just trying to set the record straight. I'm pointing our that I can come to a completely different conclusion using the same faulty logic you are using.

ok let's chillax! i cannot bear watching two people fight........... 

Dmst and Babblelot -> you just got OWNED!  :rofl_2:

Looking at it your way we can also say it's US Open has 6 fans and 14 haters. The French has 3 fans and 20 haters. Oh, and Wimbledon now has 9 fans to 14 haters. But really it's 9 fans and 1 hater.

The fact that you attribute things to me doesn't make them mine. The things you've tried to pin on me the past couple of days are the product of your dim, dismal filter. Here, let's do this. It will help, I promise.

Babblelot: Obama won! Woo hoo!

Dmast: So now you're insisting that Obama is the second coming of Jesus Christ. So now you're saying that Obama is above politics as usual, huh? Obama's hands are as dirty as any politician's. You are in denial, Babble. So according to you, Obama will solve the financial and auto crises, and that he will end both wars and heal leprocy in his first week as president. Babble, you are delusional.

Babblelot: *expletive deleted* (I kept it clean for JBfan)

Anyway, say what you want to say, and as long as you don't attribute it to me, no one will care.

The U.S. Open is my favorite for several reasons in no particular order:

1.  The final slam of the season.
2.  It's the one slam I may actually attend someday.
3.  Can you say 'night matches'!
4.  Excellent T.V. coverage.
5.  Did I already say 'night matches'?!!!
CONK da ball!!!
