Vince Spadea is the David Hasselhoff of tennis

1. Both are extremely talented in the chosen careers (Spadea - tennis - will be no. 1 next year BTW; Hasselhoff - acting).

2. Both are unusually gifted musicians.

3. They are both massive hits with the ladies.

4. They have both achieved a degree of credibility and coolness that no one else can ever emulate.

What do you think?

Re: Vince Spadea is the David Hasselhoff of tennis

I think you have A LOT in common with your avatar right at this moment


Is Vince also popular in Germany?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Vince Spadea is the David Hasselhoff of tennis

I tend to agree. Supposedly, Spadea has a cult following in Bangladesh, much akin to Davide Hasselhoff in Germany.

The real question is which one of these renaissance men can come close to eclipsing Chuck Norris and his stranglehold on the world's popularity contest.

Indeed, that really is the real question. That will be an even bigger struggle for Vinny Ice than challenging the top 10 next season.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Vince Spadea is the David Hasselhoff of tennis....yeah, and I'll win Miss America next year.
Thanks for the laugh, though.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

He's a Hasselhoff alright... because he's a mediawhore!

Oh, my stomache hurts.

My only problem is with number 4. Clearly Chuck Norris and Horatio Caine lead the way in this regard! I see that Jole beat me to the Chuck Norris reference. Boo.

Otherwise, well done

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Vince Spadea is the David Hasselhoff of tennis

Vincent wasn't personally responsible for the downfall of communism like Hoff was, but otherwise a solid comparison.
