We obviously don't take ourselves seriously, otherwise we wouldn't be posting on MTF.

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.

That's true, but we're a lot less relevant than the ITF is supposed to be.

Common HGH Side Effects: The most common and severe side effects are visible water retention, middle ear infection, and Acromegaly. The last item in that list is a disease that starts with the overgrowth of connective tissue and facial bone, which then leads to an altered look due to protruding eyebrow and jaw bones. This condition can also result in abnormally large feet and hands as well as increased growth of body hair. Ironically, instead of increasing life expectancy, HGH-caused Acromegaly can shorten one's lifespan significantly. As for common yet less severe side effects, they include muscle and joint stiffness, fluid retention in your limbs (hands, arms, feet, and legs), and flu-like symptoms (fever, muscle aches, chills, extreme tiredness, and so on).
Very interesting. I've noticed a lot of players have puffiness around the lower eye, I wonder if that has something to do with water retention. Also I've noticed several players have large hands relative to their bones structure (Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Youzhny) could be a coincidence though.

What does it say when a player gets heavy cramps during a press conference after an easy victory?

Great toons.
As had as it is to believe, those cartoons were made to educate players, not fans.

Yep, the cartoons are by Bang Cartoon. Really good.

bangcartoon.com

great NFL cartoons, it's hilarious because the cartoons and podcast are really non-pc, littered with expletives, and piss-taking of everything. They're like shock jocks. And yet he's making this stuff...

Re: ITF wants you to know they take doping VERY seriously

I read some articles about Stuart Miller, and the guy is an absolute gem

He's responsible of the anti-doping policy and he said that "anyway I don't think tennis is threatened by doping as it would not be useful for that sport"

The anti-doping program in tennis has an awful reputation among experts comparing to other sports.

Probably such a gem director had such a gem-idea as those cartoons

useless old guy

Re: ITF wants you to know they take doping VERY seriously

Wouldnt be surprised if many in the top 20 doped, it seems farcical.

yeah, Duong, Miller is a tool. couldn't agree more. all of his answers about doping in tennis are pretty lame. He is pretending he doesn't know anything about 'silent ban', but it did happen so many times in tennis history. They covered up Agassi etc.

I just want to stress out again, this is not about Rafa, it's more about ITF/ATP being hypocritical in mine opinion.

yes clearly, I thought it would have been more serious when the ITF replaced the ATP for the responsibility but it seems it's not the case at all.

of course all tennis is concerned, not especially Nadal.

Re: ITF wants you to know they take doping VERY seriously

riiight....and I'm the emperor of Holland

the doping regulations and checkups from the ITF/ATP are an embarrassment. And them thinking they could fool us in thinking otherwise by offering us cartoons.... makes me wonder if they hired chimps to do their work..seriously
