Re: Why hasn't there ever been a tournament here in the NT?

do i need to know oz's administrative division and acronyms in order to be able to read and write on mtf?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).


After losing to Nalbandian in 2005 TMC final...

Re: Why hasn't there ever been a tournament here in the NT?

There are big countries without A tournament, or countries like Argentina who give the sport so many great players with just a bitchy 250. Countries like China who never gave any good tennis player to the world have a MS1000.
Come on, don't complain dude! You have so many good tournaments across your country, and a big grass arena.

Money talks.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)

aussies are running on borrowed time/money. the kia open should obviously be moved to serbia in recognition of djokovic's GOAT legacy

Re: Why hasn't there ever been a tournament here in the NT?

why isn't there an ATP tournament in BC

repeat 10 times except replace BC each time with the following

Alberta
Saskatchewan
Manitoba
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia
PEI
Newfoundland & Labrador
Yukon
NorthWest territories
Nunavut

be happy Australia has as many tournaments as it has, it could be worse
