Re: Re: omg, LMAO at the new yahoo poll

Wish I could see it, but that link just takes me back to this page over and over again - wonder why?

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.

lol omG!!! that's just ridiculous...
but if you can believe it, i think their poll about "Who's the Greatest Female Player of All Time" was EVEN worse...
i think it left out monica seles and margaret court while throwing in serena, venus, and martina hingis...
but andy has 1 slam... so this is right up there with the worst tennis polls of all time.

oh, and the voting for that other poll was horrendous... chris evert and bjk (who are way way up there imo) had a combined total of less than 5% of the vote... serena and martina (each) had more than both of them combined and won so much less.

Re: omg, LMAO at the new yahoo poll

They left out Rod Laver! Oh, and Federer has more of a reason to be in that poll than Dickhead!

yeah, that's pretty bad. Here's the poll, for those who can't reach the link:

Who is the greatest male player of all time?
Arthur Ashe
John McEnroe
Bjorn Borg
Pete Sampras
Andre Agassi
Lleyton Hewitt
Ivan Lendl
Andy Roddick

And here are the voting results as of today:

*
1577 votes since Dec 12 2003
Arthur Ashe** 2% 39 votes
John McEnroe** 2% 46 votes
Bjorn Borg** 11% 181 votes
Pete Sampras** 56% 884 votes
Andre Agassi** 20% 320 votes
Lleyton Hewitt** 1% 31 votes
Ivan Lendl** 2% 44 votes
Andy Roddick** 2% 32 votes

Ashe was a great man, and a very good player, but his results don't allow his inclusion in this poll (unless they mean "great" in the sense of all-around humanity, but I highly doubt that's the point of this poll, lol!) Hewitt and (especially) Roddick have not been around long enough to have earned this distinction either! And where's Rod Laver, that's a good question! And Connors? among others...

Re: omg, LMAO at the new yahoo poll

I couldn't get to the poll by copying and pasting the URL either. But I did a search for polls and got it.

Ashe doesn't belong in the poll if tennis achievements is the basis. Hewitt and Roddick don't belong there either, but at least they are the two with the least amount of votes (when I checked).

I agree that Connors has the legitimacy to be on there. Laver as well. Other than that, they have the usual suspects. Sampras is leading the poll, which is deserved.

i was waiting for someone to say this. none of the new balls deserve to be on this poll, but you saying Roger needs to be there in replacement for Andy, well he didn't get #1 so there's your answer. but yet another stupid poll, when they have a decent poll on there it's gonna be the end of the world

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

"At least" those players have all reached #1. (Ashe was before rankings were created)

Re: omg, LMAO at the new yahoo poll

Well they need to include some recent players because a large amount of fans only know recent players. So I suppose it is to dumb it down. Not having Laver on there is a very big error though
