pepita just raised the bar high for heya

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Match-up. Don't tell me you don't believe in match-up, too?

They say Stupidity never goes to woods it comes to people . If you can not get a comparison that i made between languages and many styles of play then
it goes to say something about you. Maybe you and many here have missed some years at school,

I never said I didn't

But exactly, if his worst match up is a defensive player it shows that Federer playing his best tennis can lose to a defensive player. He sometimes struggles when his rival can get everything back. Not only with Nadal, with Murray too. Against Cañas in 2007 he lost 2 times in a row after 40-something matches unbeaten.

They also say that if you're stupid better not to talk at all than say something and remove all doubts.

Man, you are totally losing it, you don't even know what you're trying to say anymore. Get some language lessons

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

I prefer Boris "Captain Obvious" Becker to Mats "WTF?" Wilander.
