less than 10 years, 7 or 8 years. Never see Sampras' full game so it must be began when ROddick or Lleyton was no.1.

Black/white or colour TV, which is better?

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".

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

I can easily tell by looking at their posts if they play tennis.
