Re: what exactly is a `'journeyman'?

A journeyman is an unfriendly expression for a player who is on his "journey" on the tour for a long time, but not doing well there (winning titles etc.) I think the expression wants to say that the player is just "travelling" without achieving anything.

Re: what exactly is a `'journeyman'?

like Vince Spadea until this past weekend...

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
