lol. Good thing you weren't (judging from your displayed age) around in the days of Cassius Clay, You would have suffered greatly during the heyday of the Louisville Lip

Re: Who is the Usain Bolt of tennis?

No one, but Nadal looks a lot like Blake. Hard working, not as talented as Federer/Bolt, most of the time are 2nd. The difference is that Nadal beats Federer almost everytime in slams and Bolt beats Blake when it matter.

James Blake would be the obvious answer for a "who is Blake" in tennis

I always cringe when I hear this kind of comparison, truly idiotic.

OTOH, Usain Bolt is the Roger Federer of sprinting.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Yeah anti-doping is taking over in this era. I'm waiting for the new superdrugs to come out to start taking sprinting seriously.

Borg.

Serena in many ways, though she isn't universally loved.
