Favourite Jewish Players?

This is a bandwagon thread and maybe we can have favourite Muslim players, favourite Protestant, favourite Roman Catholic, Jehovas Witnesses and etc etc.

I will attempt to try and include as many current players as possible, but it won't be easy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Favourite Jewish Players?

Anyone but Gilbert.

This is a serious thread and Master Gimelstob deserves his name spelt correctly as Gimelnob is not fair for the purpose of this thread.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

"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."

Gottfried and Solomon made Slam finals, something Gilbert never did. Gilbert was a joke in the Slams.

Re: Favourite Jewish Players?

Amir Hadad is one of my favourites for emotional reasons.

Roger:
Rafa:
Roddick ~ Baggy ~ Blake ~ Chucho ~ Coria ~ Dima ~ Gask ~ Gaston ~ Guga ~ Haas ~ Juanqui ~ Marat ~ Delpy ~ Tsonga ~ Murray ~ Moya:
Most ATP players:

~ Passenger on the Federer Express #111 ~ Resident of Denaon's Den of Misfits ~
~ Member of Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society ~

"Most of the greatest evils that man has inflicted upon man have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, was false." ~ Bertrand Russell

Re: Favourite Jewish Players?

Must correct. Massu does not consider himself Jewish. He was raised Catholic but identifies with his Arab side more. And I vote Andyoni anyday.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Whether Massu likes it or not, he is still part Jewish
