Not even the fourth or the fifth.

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

He's one of the best players around on grass, but not second.

No...not even close. We have people like Oscar Hernandez to consider.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

I expect Mario to improve his performances in Wimbledon. I like him as a player and I think he wil do very well there, let´s see. And I don´t think he´s too far from being the 2nd best player on grass, honestly.

He is far from it at the moment...he has yet to have consistency in his results (hasn't had the chance yet admittedly). If he reaches the QF then he is well on his way...I always consider him to be just a major threat, on a par with Karlovic and Joachim etc

Maybe in the future, but not now or close to it.

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

Yes I know I can´t back my opinion with long-time results, take it as a prediction, let´s see if I´m right, I´d be surprised if he doesn´t make semis again in the next two Wimbledon.

You still cannot forgive him that he defeated Henman last year!
