Since I've got the idea for my AAA ("another amazing article" - supposed to be a joke
) which is friendship in tennis, I cannot concentrate on learning for tests tonight, until I'm creating this thread
. And the "search" options didn't give results to me.
Do you know the players on tour who are the real friends? Acts of friendship?
From what I've noticed, players don't want to talk about it too much, they say they try not to keep too close relations with the others, because it disturbs in playing that person in future. But the Argentinians stick together, so do the Spaniards.
What we have, is my favourite sentence by my favourite Marcelo Rios (Germany, end of 1998): "Having friends is to harm yourself. You can't have friends in tennis".
And by Elena Dementeva (Filderstadt, 2005) who said she wouldn't go for a dinner with other players before the match. Asked, what she would do after the match, she kind of avoided the answer, saying: "Then I am generally thinking about the next match or next tournament".
Thanks in advance, you can also PM me,
best greetings from Poland,
