That would be awesome!

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

So I'm not surprised that he has a lot of fans there.
A bit far-fetched but not a bad comparison.

Fed's tennis = GOAT-style

Barcelona's football = GOAT-style

I actually find it more interesting that there aren't any younger Swiss players, male or female, on the tour. Federer wasn't the first from his country, as Hingis made a mark years before. Federer himself admits the effect of Marc Rosset winning gold but there doesn't seem to be any from his country following his path. We've certainly heard enough idolization from young players from other countries.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Re: Potential Future Spanish Star: Idol is Federer; likes Tomic

Well... I think 70% of young tennis players prefer Federer over ANYONE.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)
