comparisons to super heroes

obviously, i'm just musing for i'm not that busy today... hehe

1. fed = superman.

superman - mild mannered. has almost every super power in the book. almost unbeatable. faithful to lois even if he can have every babe he wants in the DC universe.
fed - mild mannered. has almost every shot in the book. almost unbeatable. faithful to mirka even he can get any babe he wants in the planet.

2. roddick = superboy

superboy - young and brash. inconsistent and lacks the whole package compared to superman. always on the look out for babes

roddick - same


3. hewitt = batman

batman - cold. almost friendless. works alone but has a very close group.

hewitt - almost friendless on the tour. unreliable on commitments off the court. but keeps a tightly knit group on tour

4. nadal = spiderman

spiderman - jumps, scrambles, taunts enemies, has uncanny agility

nadal - scrambles, grinds, can taunt ("vamos!"), uncanny agility

Re: comparisons to super heroes

Can we use the ninja turtles? I mean, there are intelligent players out there, and party animals. I would loooove the tennis player version of Donatello

Re: comparisons to super heroes

Nadal is Spiderman and takes kryptonite showers before playing Fed...

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: comparisons to super heroes

Dent might be Shrek as well. But only if he isn't serving.

Hi Louise! I'm afraid we Rios fans claimed Zorro for Marcelo years ago Or a baddie in a James Bond film - and we also called him 'The Prince of Darkness'

I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

"Rios ... he has a beautiful game, great forehand and great touch," Federer, World number 1
