Which breaking of the mind, body and spirit was most impressive in 2008...?(nominatio

... with all the sh!t threads getting about I thought I'd start my own royally crap thread... i'll give it a couple of days before i post a poll on this subject cos for sure i'll miss some of the biggest events in the year of those at the top...

here are some of the landmark matches much talked about, and often quoted this year...



Tsonga announcing his arrival, just when Murray was set to announce his arrival at the Aussie Open... thereby delaying the Murray show by 6 whole months... ?

Tsonga derailing Nadal's best AO attempt yet in the AO semis, announcing himself as a GS threat and potential Top 5'er...?

Djokovic's demolition of Fed in the AO semi... perhaps marking the beginning of the end of the MUG ERA...?

Safin blowing out Djokovic at Wimbledon early on... showing Novak that he should not pay Mark Woodforde for volley coaching services...?

Or was it really at Hamburg where Novak lost his way for the latter half of 2008... with Nadal showing him who owns clay in the renown 'Battle for Number 2'...?

Or was it really Radek Stepanek who laid the foundations for Federer's ultimate **** of almost all of his titles, showing Fed how men with large genitalia roll in Italy...?

Nadal crushing Federer at the French Open final... comprehensively...?

Djokovic being hurt on grass at queen's by Nadal...?

Nadal summoning the spirit of 'sexy' once again to carstrate fed at Wimbledon...?

Djokovic's inner turmoil physically displaying it itself in the form of tears at an olympic loss...?

Simon's systematic demolition of Nadal at Madrid, where Simon shows Nadal that the 3rd set is Gillesville and Nadal had no place being there...?

Or was it Murray you took apart Nadal at the USO semis and first displayed the alarm bells for Nadal, having Nadal doubled over at the end of one rally, displaying to Nadal: This is the new benchmark for Defence.. b!tch...?

Murray crushing both himself in Federer in the RR stages of the TMC with the only interest of owning people... resigning Fed to his most sh!t season in years...?





nominate what i have missed... i'll poll the results in a couple of days...

Are you drunk mate?

Never expected some of those lines from you.

I'll go with Tsonga humiliation of Nadull.

You forgot Nadal killing Djokovic's spirit at Queen's.
Had Roger not won the USO, I would have said Rafa's double beating at RG and wimbledon

What a surprise...

My most hilarious memories of 2008 come from the Mickey Mouse-event in Rotterdam, where the tournament director, one Mr. R. Krajicek, kept on hailing his all-star-studded entry list, and even openly claimed on numerous occasions that he wanted to see a Nadal-Hewitt (HEWITT??? ) final there - to such an extent that the other players (the 'nobodies') openly started to complain about it.

Guess what? All of his 'stars', who were, as rumour has it, payed somewhere around the ***.*** digit appearance fee, were ousted before the QF. Poor Mr. Krajiced was forced to see one Mr. Llodra win the title there.

(sorry, btw, to all those who payed for the tickets to see their favs playing!)

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

i was there to see Sluiter play his last home match, at night, being knocked out by Llodra... was a nice 15 minutes presentation they gave to him...

but yeah... Krajicek has some way to go if he wants to be a competent tournament director... while i dont understand dutch and will never need to to get around NL, during that farewell to Sluiter, Krajicek had a few words that made a few cringe and murmur 'wtf' sounds...

I have to go with the tradesman's victory over Nadal at the US Open. The tradesman grabbed his tools, clocked in, did the job, clocked out and went home. No fuss.
