Re: Mikhail Youzhny receives PhD in Philosophy

Good for the game.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Re: Tennis Players' educational achievements?

I don't know how much schooling Juanqui and Ferru completed, but they are far from dumb. Juanqui has multiple business interests and Ferru reads a lot and from a wide variety of sources. Youzhny, Tipsy and various players on the women's tour show me it's possible to overthink things. I remember Youzhny being quite a headcase, smashing himself on the head with his racquet and drawing blood.

At the bottom end, as far as I know, is Fernando Verdasco, who quit school at 11 to concentrate on tennis. One source I read said he was diagnosed with ADHD. I don't know how true that is, but it's not an excuse for his crass on court behavior.
