Connors is unattractive, Roger isn't. Still, the new hairstyle with the funky-ass center part is pretty awful...no worse than Rafa's shapeless mess, but pretty bad.

They do not look like twins - right. I mean, when Roger finally decided to cut his hair and doen't wear this headband he reminds me Jimbo. Dunno, maybe I'm blind or should consider visiting a doctor, but as the time goes, he's becoming more and more similar to Connors

yeah - Six Feet Under.

Sorry, but Rogi is prettier than Jimbo could have ever have hoped for during his entire life!

The true consecutive wins record is Lendl's, since rankings were calculated differently back in the 70s.

EDIT: I mean weeks ranked as #1. Sorry for the confusion.

Merton, I don't understand your post, you refer to consecutive wins by Lendl.

By the way, the earliest possible time that Nadal could take over No.1 is after Miami.

Sorry, I refer to consecutive weeks ranked as #1. Connors has more weeks than Lendl on paper, but at that time the rankings included results of the previous two years, not just the past year, as is the case today.

I guess that is similar to the way golf rankings are computed now.

Either way, in a matter of weeks Federer will undisputedly hold the record if I'm not mistaken.

Re: The closer Federer is to Connors's record of consecutive weeks as ATP No.1...

connors looks better than roger, i mean, when he was young

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
