Yeah, and I mean you will have a phenomenal time even if you are the most irrelevant javelin thrower there is. But just try and imagine being one of the top tennis players and extremely famous in your own right unlike 99% of the athletes there. I think it would be impossible to have a greater time....

I think it's the opposite. Those guys at the top have to be zeroed in on what they are doing and I'm not sure they are really having a blast like the others. Plus, those olympians have additional pressure on trying to get endorsements and they only have once every 4 years to nail it.

Then again, I really have no idea what the top dogs do there lol. I just look at tennis players and I feel like they just live on the court and in their hotels. Very little time for screwing because they have such expensive fares.

It probably depends on them individually. Federer and Nadal obviously are in hotels far away from the action, but other guys that are single probably can't resist. Plus, they can hang around for a couple days after they lose

And while I agree about the Olympians and their endorsements, it never stopped them before

Can you imagine Marat in his prime in 04 losing to FLo in straight sets in the second round and being focused

Brian's movement is kind of a mess today, and so is the scoreboard...

Oh, no question if they lose lol. Some may on purpose due to some nice locations, like umag.


P.S. Brian is playing like absolute shit. This should be routine.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary Thread

Baker has a nice slider out wide on the deuce court. Unfortunately it's the only thing he has right now.
