At least we don't spread European biased articles throughout this board trying to make a point

Well, I would pay to see that happen.

You haven't figured out by now that Tennis Tool is our resident MTF troll?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

No charisma = No press

Sorry Fed get a personality then we'll care.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Re: SI cover: Sharapova makes it...sort of. Fed who?

It takes something truly earthshattering for SI to devote a cover to anything other than basketball/football/baseball. Federer won his 9th Slam, but did he break any precious long revered records? NO!. GS 14 or 15 or a calendar year slam would probably be the only achievements that would get him an SI cover. Not that I give a damn. SI is a fairly entertaining and informative magazine, and I do enjoy reading it (as long as they don't devote too much of any issue to boreball, hockey, or golf), but it's definately geared towards an American audience. How many covers has Ronaldinho or Zidane been on? The best players of the most popular sport on the planet. But a 17 year old high school phenom basketball player? Instant collector's issue.

Hi Lsy You finally decided to take a break from cutting down Roger's opponents to venture into GM, eh?
