Re: London Tube Stations renamed after tennis players

Oh, don't be upset, it's such a teeny little station

Much bigger is RogieGOAT station, due to the fact that he won gold in doubles not singles in an individual sport, no doubt

This not counting the station Roger Kingdom which I'm pretty sure refers also to His GOATness

They should have put the tennis players on the green line, going to Wimbledon.

Also, I think Lindsay Davenport deserved a station. She was both a gold medal and Wimbledon winner.

Agree. But overall great!

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Re: London Tube Stations renamed after tennis players

Love that Rafa is "Angel" - it's not "The Angel" by the way - just Angel. While Fed is Old Street.

Angel's one of the trendiest parts of London - the place where a lot of young people live - great to live and shop. Old St. is far grungier - massive roundabout and a bit dodgy at times - probably a few more hipsters about though. Not where you think Fed would hang around at all. Surprised they gave Rafa the cooler station

Also odd that they didn't put tennis on the line which actually has Wimbledon and Southfields (the station closest to the tennis club).

Good to see the 2 titans of the sport next to each other though.
