Meet The Fools or Meet the Fanboys/Fangirls.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

And putting Djokovic next to this: 'Events which Points Vultures may attend include ATP 250 Series and ATP Challenger Level events...' and the guy has played 1 250 in last 2 years and hasn't played 1 in over a year, played only 1 ATP500 this year and 2 last year. He is the most anti-vulture you have on tour, not like Olderer who got to no1 with points from Doha and Halle. Just fucking
It's funny because you care

Do you know off hand anywhere he does get called that?
Well, I cannot tell you for sure, but I'm pretty certain that I heard it on French TV at least once during Roland Garros. At least, I remember hearing it and seeing it in articles / Wikipedia, enough times to start wondering why the hell they would call him "Pics".

Then I googled it, found the "David Pics Ferrer" post, laughed my ass off, and then through this thread, I discovered other "tennis memes" such as "Well Start Fena" and "Where can I get Southern grips"...

And that's how I decided to join MTF.

Not only the first page...

What I don't understand is : has anybody who writes such things ever checked the rankings breakdowns of these players ?

Ok Monaco won Hamburg, then I guess Haas who was finalist also was a points vulture.

Monaco played two Masters 1000 semifinals, this is something which very very few players have done.

This "Points vulturing" notion and especially the association with defensive tennis has no reality of any kind.
