Red face Wertheim raps Nalbandian

Limerick by Jon Wertheim:

There was one a player Nalbandian,
A swift-footed, mulleted Andean
No one's one-hit wonder,
He rends foes asunder
With stamina and winners forehandian

Re: Wertheim raps Nalbandian

This was pretty lame, but I kept thinking, "David has a mullet"

Re: Re: Re: Wertheim raps Nalbandian

Well, he used to have one back in the glory days of 2002... Wertheim hasn't kept up with his latest fashion changes. More importantly, he also hasn't kept up with the playing situation of Nalbandian since he describes him as an "injury-free" competitor, which he most certainly isn't at the moment. Word of advice Jon, leave the rapping to someone who knows his stuff (and I don't mean Vince Spadea either).

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

That would be totally scary, hearing Vince rap.

David does have a mullet-long hair ala Agassi circa 1988. And yes, David has gone through some interesting fashion changes-the tattoo being the most notable....

No I haven't, I'm just going by reports of his rapping skills (or lack thereof). It is indeed a frightening thought...

That would be the first viable argument I've heard yet against getting the Tennis Channel.

"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."

Re: Re: Wertheim raps Nalbandian

Did he display a scintillating grasp of the musical medium, Naldo? Were his lyrics pearls of rapping genius? Will he be making it to a record store any time soon, d'you reckon? I wonder if he ingeniously incorporated his trademark dying-animal grunt into the song...
