I liked all those matches except Dent/Arthurs - YAWN

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I wish that I shared your enthusiasm. Most of those matches bored me to tears.

Well, let me clue you in, Nimi--this has been the most boring match of the tournament

Seriously, though, serve/volley is okay but Pete Sampras bores me to death. He's so predictable

Thank God Wayne Arthurs took care of him today.

I began loving serve and volleying alot during the last year of Pat's tennis career.

It's too bad, because the only true serve and volleyers left are Sampras and Henman.lol

I like serve/volley tennis as well, I prefer sort points rather than say a clay court style rally with about 20 plus shots, but that's just personal preference, most people probably do prefer the longer rallies.
The reason why I like the short points and big servers, is it makes your serve extremely important and that's how it should be, if you lose your serve a few times in a set, you don't really deserve to win the set.

i'm just thrilled that both Henboy and the Android lost today... not to mention Linus...

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
