Re: Tennis Hall of Fame 2006 Nominees

I always liked Pat, but have a hard time considering somebody who only won 11singles titles as "Great". But who cares, it's the tennis HOF, they've lowered the bar so much already that it's not worth my going on about any further.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Tennis Hall of Fame 2006 Nominees

I assume it was the multiple Slams and no. 1 ranking that did it, then (although he was, of course, the briefest no. 1 in the history of the game). There's no doubt about it, while he's not quite in the Pioline/Ljubicic league, he'd have been a truly great player if his record in finals had been better. 11-14, I think, including those two consecutive Wimbledon finals. Ljubicic may have blown the Madrid and Paris finals in the space of three weeks, but there is any other player out there who has ever lost the Wimbledon, Montreal and Cincinnati finals back-to-back in the same year?

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.

The closest is probably Roddick in 2004 when he lost the Wimbledon and Canada finals and the Cincinnati semifinals.

If Gabriela Sabitini makes the HOF, it will officially become one big joke.
