Tennis Idols

It was always interesting to me that while sampras, mcenroe etc. always speak of their tennis idols, people they modeled their games after, Nadal never mentions any of that stuff. Looks like that's because nadal doesn't have any tennis idols!

Real men dont need an idol.

They are their own heroes.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Nadal's idol is Ona Zee.

“Only Tiger can do something like this,” Nadal said. “Tiger is probably my idol.”

Oh yes, she is very, very talented.
She has some incredible action in her movies. Very good body positioning, before and during the action

Re: Tennis Idols

Roddick's idol is Agassi. He didn't model his game on Andre's. IMO an idol is just a person you fanboy.

There an only be One Nadal

Re: Tennis Idols

Whilst we are still talking about tennis idols, why isn't the great Federer someone's role model. I mean upcoming players are modeling their games after the likes of Nadal, Roddick or Djokovic but why isn't there another Federer in the making out there? Like R=FK would say: no self respecting man would be inspired by the fluke wins of a pansy who decided to try out his luck at tennis when he should have been a ballerina.

It's because they don't have the talent to model their game after Federer
