In For the Long Haul

World No. 3 Victoria Azarenka tells reporters that it’s possible that she, No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and No. 2 Petra Kvitova could hold the top three spots in the WTA for a long time. Those three players range in age from 20 to 22 years old. "Three, five years, it's such a long time. My God, I don't know," she said. "But I think Petra, me, Caroline, we have been pretty consistent and showed some great results this year. I really stepped it up, especially Petra who won a Grand Slam, really made it to the elite, I would say. I think the way the game is today, it's unpredictable, but definitely with the consistency with the game we have, we have a chance to dominate the game."


Get used to seeing them, guys.

Well, seems Angry Bird's beak is yapping A)I like on what she said about the Ostrich. B)Dead wrong on what she said about the Bunny. C)I have mix feelings about what A. Bird said about herself, C1)No one should toot their own horn, it makes them sound like a jackass. C2)How could A. Bird be consistent when she is snap, crackle, and pop? Probably she thinks she will get healthier as she gets older. *I'm being sarcastic* C3)A. Bird should learn how to win matches on all big stages only winning in Miami is not going to cut it. C4)I know this really well, no matter how she much she controls her anger at some point she will blow up. It is not something I'm wishing on her is something that has the possibility of happening again at any given moment; like in a losing streak. C5)Cockiness always comes back to bite, now her rivals are going be more determined to prove her wrong.







Captain and Clefairy, I would like to apologize for my behavior on a previous post. Never mind the bad history that I have with that individual as you know, but I wasn't going to seat there and have that someone insult everyone on this blog. I know everyone who is a blogger or comments on this blog (Caps321, Clefairy, and you Captain) have class not to engage in a war of words but I'm just a punk with a big mouth, I know it is not an excuse but that individual crossed the line. It may be strike one for me but frankly it felt good, you know why Captain. Let me know when I cross the line.

Carlos, I thought it was rather humorous seeing that we seem to like more foreign tennis players than Americans.

I think Angry Bird has wishful thinking. While I believe she's a bona fide top 10 player, assuming she'll reside in the top 3 for years to come is shaky at best. Especially considering her snap, crackle and pop history. I mean, if ya can't defend points...

Carlos said...

Thanks Caps.


I think it will come down to the doubles match, and I'll give the edge to the Russians.


Is hard to root for one side because I like the Princess and Ostrich.

Marine said...

Hello Carlos :-)
I suppose that I am that individual in this case but since I know you from other blog I know I am not the first person you have had the issue with.
As far as crossing the line is concerned you are absolutely right...about yourself.
And since I am from Europe I know that you'd agree... Cheers.

Carlos said...

Typical you "I think I'm better than the rest of the world because I'm European" Marine, head hunting. As we say in my native country "I was talking to the owners of the circus". After this post I'll ignore you, talking to you is like wrestling a pig and when a person wrestles a pig, all the person gets is muddied and the pig likes it, but you knew that already. Yes, I did had my war of words with the "Lack Luster Genius" at WTB. Like you the douche couldn't handle the truth, come to think about it you both are from the same rotten pus ilk. I'll dedicate you a song in honor of one of your favorite players, Hingis: Eric Clapton's "Cocaine". Lastly, "eat it" and buen provecho. Toodle.

Ostrich takes the first set rather easily.

Ostrich wins with drop shots, finesse and power.

Marine said...

I'm glad to hear I will be spared of your garbage Mr Angry Bigmac. Your ability to handle conversation can be beaten by a five year old child.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova will sub for Maria Kirilenko in the fourth singles rubber of the Fed Cup final between Russia and the Czech Republic in Moscow, Pavlyuchenkova said on Twitter. Kirilenko was beaten by Czech Petra Kvitova 6-2, 6-2 in the first match of the tie, and has been practicing with Elena Vesnina in doubles, so it appears that Russian captain Shamil Tarpischev wants to give his-highest ranked singles player a shot at the veteran Lucie Safarova. Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated Safarova 6-2, 6-3 in the second rubber to even the tie at 1-1. Kvitova will play Kuznetsova in the first reverse singles.

Ostrich gets the early break on Kuzzie and is up 1-0 on serve.

Angry Big Mac said...

Caps I still believe it will come down to the doubles match and the Russian Captain knows it. The Princess and Vesnina makes a lethal doubles combo, at least on paper. If Safarova doesn't pull an upset the Russians take the cake.


Let me introduce myself I'm Angry Big Mac. I'm angry because I can't stand elation of "Happy Meals". :P

BTW I'm in no relation to Mark "Big Mac" McGuire.

PS: Big Mac combos for everyone! My treat!

PSS: HaHaHa.

Emily or as Carlos likes to call me "Captain" said...

How nice you to join us, ABM :P I expect my Big Mac combo in the post soon. Super sized, of course.

caps321 said...

Have to agree with that doubles talk....

Meanwhile, Ostrich just lost the first set to Kuzzie. And this is their first meeting as well.

The set lasted about an hour and it was rather close but I'm unsure of the exact score. Probably something like 6-4.

Anyway, I don't have the sound on because my feed is in Russian, eh.

caps321 said...

SQUAWK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Ostrich wins it in 3.

Angry Big Mac said...

Doubles! Mr. Cap.


Captain it will super sized for everyone! Buen Provecho!


Should I keep the ABM? :P

Angry Big Mac said...

Surprise, surprise, it comes down to the doubles. I'm still sticking with the Russians.

Angry Big Mac said...

Czechs won.

Mr. Caps I bet your smiling seeing your woman the Ostrich lift the Cup.

caps321 said...

Didn't even realize the doubles was played today. I'm not very happy about Vesnina/Princess getting worked over. (Not sure if they've teamed before but both are pretty good at doubles, IMO.)

I don't really care about which country wins just the individual player results.

caps321 said...

Can't wait to hear what Carlos has to say about this:

via tennis.com

After winning the Commonwealth Bank of Champions in Bali for the second consecutive year, Ana Ivanovic tells reporters she can reach No. 1 again. The 24-year-old Ivanovic is projected to rise to around No. 22 when the rankings are released on Monday. "I believe so, " Ivanovic said when asked if she could return to No. 1. "My new team can help me to get there.” Ivanovic was last No. 1 in June 2008, right after she won her sole Grand Slam at Roland Garros.

The Serbian hired former LTA coach Nigel Sears after Wimbledon and also rehired her former physical trainer, Scott Byrnes.

"It will be difficult [for Ivanovic to be No. 1], but she has the technique, physique and mentality. Why not?" said Anabel Medina Garrigues, whom Ivanovic beat 6-3, 6-0 in the Bali final.

Carlos said...

Thanks Caps, this article got my juices flowing.


What in the world is Anabel Medina smoking? Or was she being too nice and polite? Hell no! The Fist Pumping Imbecile doesn't have the mentality. All you have to do is win the first set and she will fold like a cheap hooker. If the Imbecile wins the first set all the opponent has to do is play hard in the second, from that point the Imbecile will give the opponent the second set, by the third she will be there like a bump on a log. It doesn't matter how fit the imbecile gets again -and that is code for shedding the extra pounds that gained- she doesn't have the ovaries to engage in a fight on-court.

If any of her Imbecilites say, "But she has won in Bali two years in a row", well whoopie doodle doo! Last year when she won this tournament the Imbecile was ranked in top 20, this year before Bali she was outside the top 25! "Projected to rise around 22". To have the same player win this tournament back to back while the ranking of that player is going downward only shows this tournament is a total human waste. The Imbecile doesn't have the chops to take top opponents much less top opponents on a back to back basis. The more her team changes the more she stays the same.



I agree with you Caps the Russians doubles team of Vesnina and the Princess should have kicked butt. Like I said, on paper they were the better team and to lose on home field takes it to the "Double Ouch!" factor.


Speaking of Russians, did Ms. Lickitongue file for retirement?



Captain, Clefairty, and Caps should I keep using the Angry Big Mac name? :P

caps321 said...

Is Angry Big Mac married to Angry Bird? Where are the wedding photos??

Concerning Lickitongue - If this whole politics thing doesn't work out one would assume she'd be back for tennis action. However, guess that depends on how much money she has in the bank and if other income opportunities make themselves known. Because its painfully obvious she probably isn't going to get well enough to compete w/o pulling out of tournaments left and right.

Concerning Imbecile - You can rest assured she will never, ever be #1 in the rankings again.

Angry Big Mac said...

Sadly Angry Big Mac is not married to Angry Bird, but ALL the rumors that you heard Mr. Caps every single one of them are true! The midnight rendezvous, all those tryst, the secret vacations, have happened! O_O It was A. Bird's tongue won that over ABM's heart, he finds it strangely attractive and worked wonders on those special moments. ;) :P ...and I always wanted to talk in the third person haha. :P



Back to the Imbecile: somewhere after she won her slam she lost her game, her confidence, and focus. She is now more interested in doing photo shoots than hitting the courts to correct her game. Her mind is somewhere else when she is playing a match, either she is thinking walking down a red carpet, a new pose for her next photo shoot, or maybe a party; in the mean time her opponents are taking advantage of her mental lapse. After she loses she blames everyone (her team), her health (she makes up illness or injuries), the journalist who point out the obvious, or any other factor. I haven't heard the Imbecile take responsibility for a loss. At best she can crack the top ten again, at best, but to be ranked number one? I don't see it unless she uses the Bunny's formula, in that case I will really throw a fit. I hope I'm not giving The Fist Pumping Imbecile any ideas.



Why is it that women Russian tennis players all want to go into politics after their tennis career are over? Money? Power?

caps321 said...

Angry Bird has a magic tongue? What about Lickitongue?

AO12 should be interesting assuming Kimmie, Serena and Ostrich are playing!

Angry Big Mac said...

Aaaaah Mr. Caps you are pulling all the dirty laundry and skeletons out of the closet. Ms. Lickitongue now my ex had an extra ordinary tongue, ;) sadly we amicably parted ways. What I have with Angry Bird is what is called "something on the side" since she is already in an official relationship. We kept it a secret for as long as we could to protect her reputation, from the media, and an angry boyfriend. But now I have set my eyes on someone new, care to guess Mr. Caps who that is?



I already have a dark horse for AO 12 and I'm going with the "Trickster" Aggie. Depending on the draw I have her easily in the QF possibly SF.

I don't know about the Kookie Monster since her return to tennis she has been very inconsistent.

What I question with Serena is health an age which go hand in hand.

I would love the Kookie Monster and Serena to prove me wrong, but most importantly I want to see high level tennis from them and everyone else.

caps321 said...

Mr. Angry, who is Birds regular boyfriend? Sounds to me like she was just a booty call.. Not anything wrong with that!

But now I have set my eyes on someone new, care to guess Mr. Caps who that is?

Is she in the top 10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100? Which one? I need 1 in 10 odds to guess.

Yeah, you never know which Kimmie is going to show up. But, my money is on her winning against Serena if that comes to pass and an Ostrich match should be superb assuming Petra is on her game.

IMO, if Aggie's shoulder is 100% (still not sure exactly what her injury is?) she should do very well. But, still can get overpowered when playing well.

Angry Big Mac said...

Mr. Caps Angry Bird's regular boyfriend was a guy that once dressed in women's clothing...whatever rocks his jollies, I'm not a judgemental person. I think the Captain and Clefairy can give you more information on the gentleman.

The secret meetings or "booty call" as you say Mr. Caps were very frequent raging from once a week to three times a week, now the whole world knows Bird/ABM's personal business. All I can say is Ms. Angry Bird is one hell of a "booty call" aaaaah that tongue. ;) In those moments she was able to put a smile on my face, I was simply "Big Mac" not "Mr. Angry" or "Angry Big Mac". :P

Your hint Mr. Caps she is ranked somewhere 10-20. Good luck!




I don't know the intensity of the Trickster's injury. If it is not serious with the lay off that she will get her shoulder could be healed. You are right Caps she has to learn how to handle the big pops. I think she needs to go to the gym and gain a strength not muscle. Also she must not allow to be over-tricked like she was at the USO 11.

caps321 said...

10-20, eh?

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova?

Angry Big Mac said...

Cute girl Nasti Pav is, but is the wrong answer. I'll give you three more clues that will point the girl that has capture ABM's attention:

1)The Captain gave her the nickname and 2)her nickname is related to the movie Mr. Bean. 3)She is a blond of course.


What about you Mr. Caps? Rumor has it you will join the Aggster this off season, a "hook up" as kids call it today. Nothing wrong with a "hook up" Mr. Caps, remember every rumor is true.


For all the talk that I like blonds but three women that blew my mind the first time I saw them were brunettes: actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, Oxana Fedorova (first Russian woman to win the Ms. Universe pageant), and the Beautiful Boss (WTB blogger).

caps321 said...

I would've said Lickibean but thought you already discarded her!

No hooking up with Aggie for me.

Angry Big Mac said...

Too bad you are not going to hook up with the Aggster Mr. Caps. It could have ben fun.


Why did you think I had already discarded Ms.Lickibean?

How about an advise Mr. Caps should I still keep Angry Bird on the side?
