ATP website refers to "Uncle Toni"

Who runs the ATP website? It's strange enough when commentators keep calling him Uncle Toni as if he's everyone's uncle but didn't expect it in an ATP article.

In this rather boring write up http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...-Briefing.aspx setting up the H2H of Fed/Delpo and Rafa/Nalby it gives the main career stats of Nadal and Nalbandian. Nadal's coach is apparently "Francisco Roig (Uncle Toni not here)". Amateur hour. The article is totally pointless anyway - do we need a round up of Nalby, Delpo, Rafa and Fed's year so far - all 2 months of it - for the buildup to a QF?!! Why not write some articles about lesser known players - give us some insight into the tour - not this rubbish that a 12 year old could have written better.

Re: ATP website refers to "Uncle Toni"

Uncle Toni is a universal concept. Like War, politics and pizza.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Ton Toni runs ATP I thought you knew

You may not know this, but Djokovic recently found a broken Head racquet under his bedsheets. We shall see the result in the final.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: ATP website refers to "Uncle Toni"

When Rafa ascended to the tennis throne his Uncle Toni became our Uncle Toni, and then he became the world's Uncle Toni.


"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

uncle toni is everyone's uncle in the ATP. in the lockerooms and more private circles he's universally known as the gothfather, though.
