Re: What Might HAVE been - The Former Roman, Austro-Hungarian and Byzantine Empires

The Austro-Hungarian Empire would have been a powerful force in world tennis with its Davis Cup team of Ivanisevic, Muster and Mecir. That is until the Moo-Man paid a ceremonial visit to Sarajevo, got shot dead by the anarchist Djokovic and, well... you know the rest.

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.

But at least Staflin would be around to restore order in the east later on.

Re: What Might HAVE been - The Former Roman, Austro-Hungarian and Byzantine Empires

Charles V ( Holy Roman Emperor ) and also being Charles I ( King of Spain ) had a vast empire where it was said that the sun never set on his dominions ( Europe+South America )

It would be a tennistic empire

The only problem is, Davis Cup would perhaps suffer a little, in terms of competition.

the teams would have to be a lot bigger, and perhaps the stakes would be raised slightly.

The Roman Empire Armada would have done a bit of damage too
