How to improve the popularity of tennis

I know we all have our own ideas about this, but I thought to myself, surely a promotional campaign upon these lines would work wonders?

Do let me know your opinion.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

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.

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

Fair's fair Glenn, this is the Top 5 as they stand at present. And I'll tell you, it's actually mighty difficult to find a goofy picture of either Nadal or Gonzalez, intensity is usually their watchword.

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

To improve Glenn's project, I'd add - after every moonballed ball, a guilty player has to take off a clothing item.

I will burn
And you will die...

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

Those pics remind me of when my boys as toddlers were trying to go on the toilet Very funny. Especially the Roger one.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

it is disgusting that the most attractive photo in the entire compilation is of De Villiers

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

And Glenn... you've posted a lot of shit that I think is almost appalingly stupid recently, but I will always forgive you because you are a Tim Henman fan.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

Well, what you think about what I say doesn't really matter, as you're wrong about them, for sure.

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

Glenn sucks, he is always ruining the mood. He wants to change reality and have guys like Mrynyi in that compilation

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

Hey, if I'd done a Masters of the Universe-themed compilation he'd have been a cinch for the role of Beastman.

Re: How to improve the popularity of tennis

Glenn's cool. He likes Tim, and honestly, that's all that matters to me. But ultimately, he is wrong about a lot.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.
