Talking The "Dun give up on your favourite players" thread!!!

I was cheering and not giving up on Rainer the whole year. But I should be happy that Safin and Coria did well to Qualify for the Championships, but they lost their respective matches, so here it goes!!!

COME ON MARAT!!! YOU GOTTA TRY TO BEAT TIM!!! You can do it!!! It's the only way to qualify now!!!

Coria I know you were injuried and lack in match play and all, but just do you best and try to end on a high note, try to win or take a set from Andy, even though it's not gonna be easy!! Hope you recover fast for a good 2005 year!!

As for Andy... well you qualified already...

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Roddick, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Ljubicic, Bovina, Li Na, Ivanovic, Chan YJ, Dementieva, Vinci, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Vaidisova, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players in the world!!!

Re: The "Dun give up on your favourite players" thread!!!

Buddy, do you mean 'don't give up'? I only ask because there was a time when the phrase 'he dun given up' was used to indicate the past tense, a vernacular for 'he has already given up.' It's entirely possible that I'm the only one who was confused by this at first glance.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

GO MARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I aint giving up on philippoussis, this year has been as bad as it could ever get, so i look forward to next year! Mark is back working with the military fitness dude (marcus heon), and also training with john mcEnroe which should be really helpful.

Can't wait for the aussie summer and watching a fit, determined, and sexy mark!

Goooooo, Marat!

Nope not the only one Fee. Dun Give up, is kinda Afro American Slang which means, I can take it anymore, i give up on this player.

My faves are still my faves. I usually pick some lesser player as my real faves; Ive always been a Nalbandian fan, but after that i like Scud, and i like Jérome Haehnel and a few others. theyd have to rob a bank or do something really bad for me not to like them. i dont switch loyalties for no reason

Re: The "Dun give up on your favourite players" thread!!!

I am just hoping that David can have an injury free 2005 after this past, dreadful season, but I am still so proud of him for ending the year at Number 9 despite all the injuries, and I will never give up on him

Re: The "Dun give up on your favourite players" thread!!!

Thanks Frog Burger.

As for the topic, well I'm a JanMike fan with a website, so obviously I'm one of those fans . On top of that, I'm pretty fond of Flip too, yikes. But on the other hand, Haas and Kiefer both came back and had good seasons so overall this was an evenly balanced year for me. Cheers to all of us die-hard tennis fans/nutcases. Where would they be without us?
