Question What sports would your fav tennis player played if he weren't a tennis player?

I dunno if this has been asked ... but i'm curious and it's still a few more days before the 2004 starts...so...

This is two questions....

1. What sports would he have played if he weren't a tennis player?

2. And what sports would you like him to play if he weren't playing tennis?

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Roddick, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Ljubicic, Bovina, Li Na, Ivanovic, Chan YJ, Dementieva, Vinci, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Vaidisova, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players in the world!!!

With his amazing hand-eye coordination and returning ability, Andre would probably be great with a baseball bat.

Maybe Andre could halt the curse of the bambino! (not!)

I think it's safe to say that most tennis players would have been soccer players. And there are so many players who had to choose between soccer or tennis at a young age. Can't think of any right now

oh, yeah, some players would definitely have more time to surf! I love the surfer players

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Guga would be a surfer. Rainer would probably be more in his Tae Kwon Do!

Jan-Michael would be a professional beach volleyball player. He has a sand pit court at his house.

I think Marat would be a great football player (he really likes showing his skills on court too)

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Tim Henman would most likely be a football player, although he also loves to play golf (and quite good at it, too!).

David would be a rally car driver (or possibly a footballer), and Guille would definately be a footballer.

Dominik Hrbaty would be a skier, he had to choose between that and tennis.
Gaston Gaudio would be a footballer.

Marat wanted to play football. I'm sure he would've been very good...like that Miroslav Kl...somethinging tall guy in the German team.

Riding the 3AM Rollercoaster

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.

As has been said already, Marat would definetly be a football player, and a very good one. Thats the thing he wanted to do in fact as a kid and he loves it still.
