Canadian MTFers Members Introduction Thread
Hey guys, I figure I start up a thread about ourselves and why we like tennis, and particularly, get to know all each other since all of us support our fellow Canadian players. So I'll start with myself,
Well, I'm originally from Quebec but moved to BC a year ago. My real name is Tommy. I've been following tennis since 1999. Ever since then, I've been suppporting the Canadian pro players like Nestor, Lareau, Niemeyer and now, the current crop of players we have.
I myself enjoy playing tennis. They got courts here in Quesnel, British Columbia. Whenever the season is right, I got out to play. I've been playing tennis since I was 15. Last summer, I played lots of tennis, like 3-5 times a week every week. My style of tennis is serve & volley. I like to charge the net.
My favorite players on the ATP tour include Patrick Rafter, Pete Sampras, Goran Ivanisevic, Sebastien Grosjean, Marat Safin, Andre Agassi, Robin Soderling, Roger Federer, Daniel Nestor, Milos Raonic, PLD, Erik Chvojka, Peter Polansky.
I'm a staunch supporter of Canadian tennis. If it were possible, I wish Canadian players could win Slams every year and populate the ATP Top 10 every season but realistically speaking, that's a lot to ask and not too possible but I got high hopes for Milos and Vasek. Those two guys will be the rock core of our Davis Cup team for years to come. Also, I would love to see more ATP 250 events in Canada like one in Vancouver and another in Calgary and then another in either Montreal or Toronto. I think we should embrace grass courts as our national surface.
Anyways, anyone else's turn?
oh yes, mods if you see this thread, sticky it.
