Which Grasscourt Gimp will win the most matches at Wimbledon?

Since we had one for the claycourt clowns at Roland Garros, it is fair to have a thread for the grasscourt gimps and to which one of these will win the most matches at Wimbledon.

Tursunov was the winner of the Roland Garros for the clowns.

Since I only had 10 options there were some unlucky players to miss out like Horna, Hrbaty, Chela, Wawrinka.

But there are some quality grasscourt gimps here. Gaudio is only here so he can get some cash and then go to Germany to watch Argentina play in the World Cup

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".

Davydenko can make a third round and I also voted for Gaudio but that's just a joke.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

PHM isn't that bad on grass.

Why isn't Rafa on the list, apparently he can't play on grass

Ok, you are getting a seed for the arse clown contest.

Mathieu is poor on grass, but not as bad as some.

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".

Gaudio is taking the piss. I hope he plays 10m behind the baseline.

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".

Isn't the Roddick sharing a shit ride out of Wimbledon with Ljubicic? They always give favors to Federer. At least until the year 2009.

PHM has won a couple of indoor titles which isn't too dissimilar to grass. He gave Fed a reasonably decent match not so long ago at Wimby if I remember correctly.

Fed cruised past Mathieu 2,4 and 4 in the first round last year as far as I can remember. Not a total thrashing but not a close match either.

Re: Which Grasscourt Gimp will win the most matches at Wimbledon?

Grass gimp most likely to watch the world cup and forget to turn up for the tennis match: Gaudio

Grass gimp most likely to be beaten by Bilbo’s grandmother in the first round: Beto Martin

Grass gimp most likely to end up needing a psychiatrist after one grass court match: Pashanski

Grass gimp most likely to be slapped by Gimelstob’s wife: Almagro

Grass gimp most likely to play Oscar Hernandez in the Wimbledon final: Mathieu

Grass gimp most likely to try to “clay slide” on grass and end up going head first into the strawberry & cream cart: Ferrer

Grass gimp most likely to assume grass court tennis means it is time to smoke weed: Calleri

Grass gimp most likely to smash the world record of unforced errors on grass: Davydenko

Grass gimp most likely to compete with dementieva for the slowest serve award: Volandri

All others will obviously lose to lucky loser bye
