Re: The Lleyton Llovefest

Jane's Favourite Things About Lleyton

1. His backhand down the line, especially when hit on the run to a ball no-one else would get to!

2. The fact he never gives up. Not ever. Never.

3. If he can physically walk, he'll jump on the nearest plane and make it to a DC tie anywhere in the world, however inconvenient, and then produce great tennis.

4. His compassion for children and disabled people.

5. His favourite tennis player is Pat Rafter

Re: The Lleyton Llovefest

Thanks for starting this great thread!

Here's my list:

1) His fighting spirit and "never say die" spirit. He consistently "fights above his weight" and never tanks a match.

2) His on-court enthusiasm, including the "vicht", the "lawnmower" and the bellows of "C'MOOOOON." While others think it's poor sportsmanship, I know that he's just completely "in the moment" and that's he reacting to being in a winning position, no offense to his opponent.

3) His lobs -- I love to hear the crowd go "awwwwww" when they kiss the line.

4) His work with Special Olympians -- Lleyton displays tremedous patience with them and continues his work, even though almost every sportswriter ignores his involvement.

5) His sense of patriotism and his commitment to Davis Cup.

Bonus favorite thing: His great cheekbones and cheeky smile



C'mon, Lleyton!

20. His Volley - he has great hands at net. I love it when he does the drop volleys especially.

Re: The Lleyton Llovefest

I love the way he takes defeat. He gets everything he has out of himself so he wins no matter what the result.

I also love the way he puts the fear of God into linespeople. lol

Re: The Lleyton Llovefest

24: I really love how he respectfully takes off his hat at the net after each game, win or lose. It doesn't seem like much but no one else really does that!

[COLOR=Blue]I bow to the feet that are Landon Donovan's![/COLOR]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LANDON!! 3/04/82
