ATP 2005: YEAR IN REVIEW

- Nalbandian awakens potential, captures the year's biggest title
- Federer dominates the quick courts
- Nadal dominates the slow courts
- Roddick avoids Roger at any cost
- Hewitt continues to deny that there are players more talented than he
- Agassi blames every loss on injury
- Argentina is the target of Drug reports
- Gay Croatians fill up these boards
- Disturbed release their third album

Breakthroughs of the Year

1. DaveMeister, Nalbandian
The most talented Argentine, the best player to have never won a slam.
Most had thought that Dave would never win the big one, let alone face Federer in the final of the Masters Cup;
end up winning and putting a stop to half a dozen records, all the while sky rocketing his ranking 6 places.
------------------------------
2. Ljubicic, Ivan
No doubt about it, Ivan belongs where he is.
Throw in a poor 2006, and he'll still finish among the top 10.
------------------------------
3. Ginepri, Rob
He's like Lleyton.
Yet with bigger ground strokes, a powerful serve, and a badass gimmick. You can't go wrong.
------------------------------
4. Blake, James
'Dramatic career-threatening injury' bullshit aside:
Jim has shown us that he's able to go toe-to-toe with the best on fast hardcourt.
I doubt he's capable of making a splash anywhere else. Besides, 75% of tournaments are played on slower surfaces.
------------------------------
5. Davydenko
Who cares about this guy.
He deserves to have made the top 10, but someone should really show him the door.
------------------------------


Scams of the Year

1. Performance Drugs
Anyone in the business will tell you that half the players within the top 50 are filling up on performance enhancers.
The only question is; why take action against the Argentines, not the Russians, Czechs or Americans?
After all the Argentines are home to half the world's top 10 line-up.
------------------------------
2. Roger Federer
Notice how the press loves to praise Roger's every move, while not making a mention of his on-court arrogance.
Sure Rodge is a fine and dandy guy during interviews and easy match-ups.
But when he doesn't get his way on court, the bitch flings balls anywhere and everywhere; including ball kids.
All the while swearing at linesman, and somehow maintaining his perfect 'ambassador' label.

It's easy to be a nice guy when you're setting records and going undefeated for six months on end.
But every once in a while, when his opponent has the upper-hand, the Rodge from the 90's tends to appear.
------------------------------
3. Roddick seeded ahead of Hewitt at Wimbledon
One word, WTF
------------------------------


Jackasses of the year

1. Tommy Robredo
Boy, shave that monobrow. And easy with the high-riding, you're the geek of the ATP.
------------------------------
2. Alfonsojose
We know you're a fag. Get over it.
... Its gay to be gay.
------------------------------


A look into 2006

The 2006 line-up should look a little something like this:
1. Federer
2. Nadal
3. Nalbandian
4. Hewitt
5. Ljubicic
6. Coria
7. Ginepri
8. Berdych
9. Roddick
10. Gasquet

This is taking into account that Safin and Agassi will be sidelining the majority of '06.
And that Nadal will be trading his clay boots for a pair of sneakers (indoor hardcourt).

Besides, we all know Robredo is the hottest thing in the top 20.
Disagree.

It starts babbling and ends babbling. It's just based on who he likes.

You really could have done with this. It wasn't necessary.

Or Hispanics or blacks. Hell, I'm surprised that you took the time to spell Nalbandian right, rather than "Nalbino".

My prediction: KarolBeckFan wil call you homophobic and then want you banned. Chloe will bitch you out and call you a homophobic piece of trash. A piece of advice, don't try to argue with Chloe, you'll never win

I don't think this is a matter of opinion.
