Re: I like players from Argentina because......

True.

Anyway I like them due their style of game, and coz though the Argentines are well-known here in Latin America for their "hyper-ego", I don't find any Argentine tennis player ever like that.

At least that's my perception of them. That's why I loved them. But my faves are Guille and David.

Re: Re: Re: I like players from Argentina because......

E.g. Nalbandian the Andean, who I believe has Armenian ancestry - that's why it was interesting to see him getting thrashed by Sargsian in the first round of the US Open back in 2002. The equivalent of, I don't know, Simon Larose hammering Rusedski off the court in New York... not very likely, that one.

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.

Maxima, the stepdaughter of our queen, is from Argentina?! Weird question, if you ask me...
I don't like Argentine players, because of their nationality. I like Nalbandian for instance, but I highly dislike Coria. It depends on the player.. not on the nation!

I don't like them because they're doped, and because of their game.

But I like much better the football players

That was not nice.

And anyway if you dislike them, this is not the thread for it, ok? Just go on, and create a new topic called "I dislike argentine players..." and blah blah.

Re: I like players from Argentina because......

That is a strange reason for liking argentinean players.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.
