JHMatches is no longer available

Bad news...JHMatches is no longer available on youtube, I've got the third copyright strike by WTA Tour Inc. Looks like we're still living in a very restricted rights world. Let me make this clear here: I do support copyright as I think there's a need for it but sometimes I feel that there should be a limit placed too. I have never, not in the least bit of intention trying to make money by uploading Justine's tennis videos onto youtube, I did not make a single cent out of it, it was pure intention of sharing the good stuffs, but there will always be $$$ suckers out there to destroy it.

Good bye to my account JHMatches, and I can't express enough how disappointed I am at youtube, WTA officials, wasted my countless of hours trying to upload Justine's beautiful tennis matches, and the end result is this.

I wanna question youtube this: why is it that I still see many other matches out there and not taken down? Why target me? Why target an account that only uploads matches of a retired tennis legend?Is it because I didn't help youtube make money from it? Goodbye WTA forever (well, I haven't been following much anyway, the current generation sucks, the game sucks, it's boring and uninteresting, not even one of them will attract the attention of mine like Justine does)

I just hope Justine's artistic tennis can still be seen through all these videos and let more youngsters adopt her style and make the game more interesting, to let them see how tennis should be played and not just brainless ball bashing with no tactics but only trying to over power opponent which is not the right mindset at all.

I am still not keen to find other video platforms to spend hours again to upload Ju's matches, not when now I'm working and getting busy. In the past, I still have the time to upload her videos as student but now, it's hard for me to do the same, I'm very sorry. But well, never say never right? I still bear the hope of wanting more ppl to get to know Justine, especially her tennis. Trust me, it's really a delight and no regrets to watching her play. I don't care much for Serena and her achievements, her way of playing will never interest me forever, this, I can say never.

Thank you Justine very much for your tennis, letting me appreciate the true art of tennis.
