Talking If none of them played tennis, which do you think might have been their occupations??

I mean ordinary jobs, the regular people we meet in our daily lives...

I just pictured:

Roger Federer as a librarian or in a movie rental shop
Guillermo Coria working in McDonald's
Agassi working as a plumber....



Oh, Lleyton and Andy unemployed (yeah they can be unemployed too) I imagine they might be pretty lazy for work

Re: If none of them played tennis, which do you think might have been their occupations??

This is going by appearance rather than aptitude, correct? I cannot see Coria ever crossing paths with his wife-to-be in a McDonalds joint...

Gonzalez would be the crane operator who uses a ball and chain to demolish buildings.

Hewitt would have found gainful employment in a prestigious Aussie PR agency.

Volandri would be the typical rude waiter at an upmarket restaurant - stylish and temperamental, but ultimately offering very poor service.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

yeah by appearance mostly, I know none of them personally so I don't know their talents and skills.
