or maybe not




it too extreme for you? nah, was an indirect way of honouring stefan, roger's resplendent practice partner

Quite trolling around you two.

I'm a Federer fan myself.

From what I've read on the subject Fed made a choice to associate himself with mostly Swiss companies. I'm guessing though the largest chunk of his endorsement $$ comes from Nike.

Re: Federer's fortune is worth $210-$315 million USD

PC aside, from the top 4, this is the scale of whiteness

1 - murray
2 - federer
3 - djokovic
4 - nadal

the spanish were colonized by the moors and the serbians by the ottomans (iirc) so there's probly some of it around nadal and djokovic respectively.

i have a lot of spanish blood myself and im pretty sure i must have some moor blood just because of it.

as for fed, i've heard people claim that he doesnt look 100% white and he kind of doesn't in the northern euro sense of the word. his features and skin tone seem to indicate that there could have been some non-white ancestors in his lineage.

Thanks for the response Abraxas.

That's exactly what I meant.

That's also one of the reason why people don't like to categorize Spain (geographically part of Europe) as part of Western Europe in terms of culture.

The other users should also be aware that the word "Caucasian" has nothing to do with Europe either, Caucasians are actually groups of people from the Caucasus, not descendants of Celts, Germanic, or other groups, etc.

spain is part of western europe culturally speaking. i dont think i've ever heard anyone suggesting otherwise. if racial tones were definitive to that matter, then places like southern italy or greece wouldn't be considered part of western europe either...

Yeah, I used "white" in a specific context few pages back. The context in which I used it was in reference to people with Western European culture (English, Irish, French, Germanic groups etc.)

But of course things got blown out of proportion.

Which is kinda unfair, considering Serena is a much better and more talented player than the Shrieker.

Women's tennis is more screwed up that way, at least with Olderer he has 16 slams.

I stand by my blondes theory. Imagine how much more Rog's fortune would have been worth if he had stuck with this hair:

getta, i didnt mean you. i've only read bits and pieces of this thread and i dont mean to read it entirely. it's just that it happens that i've encountered many people in real life that insist on being white or whatnot.

anyhow, not that it matters much. i feel that in this topic i should better make quiet or otherwise i might have to end giving endless explanations about what what i say.
