Re: Nadal could be a Dai-Yokozuna after the French Open, Djokovic a Yokozuna, and Mur

A sumo fan? ..

.. Well, I've seen stranger.. a Mayerfan for example. God that was shocking.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

You must be shocked quite often on MTF then Even Boredo has fans, player like Flo has plenty

Thanks for the info. Though if this was a Sumo fight, nobody would stand a chance against Nadal (Baghdatis, maybe, he does sport an impressive potbelly).

Berrer will win all four slams in one year definitely.

Yes, yes. I wear my Scream mask and trusty Robin Hood hat while reading through the content of MTF to hide my shockery. I also invent words.

Re: Nadal could be a Dai-Yokozuna after the French Open, Djokovic a Yokozuna, and Mur

this blogger is a great man... i am sending out a big 'Get F**ked' to those who are taking the piss without reason... you obviously haven't spent much time opening your mind to seeing the greats rated in such a way or probably havent even given time to reading it, for if you weren't such half wits and had a fraction of an idea about the history of the game you could see the system is actually a fantastic look at rating all time greats...

so f**k off...

I've been following this blog since Nadal was promoted to Yokozuna in 08, very interesting read. Would love to see him get a final promotion. As for Nole, I thought you needed to win at at least two different majors to qualify?

14.
