Pete Sampras. He almost beat Federer in NY this year.

Marcos Baghdatis Forever!

Through the good and the bad, always my #1, no matter what the rankings say

Magnus Larsson

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

For sure, if his back were to hold up. His hand eye coordination is the best ever and his return game would still be potent.

Agassi & Rios easy.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)
