Re: I know we all love Pim Pim but...

hmmm...the bad thing is that rusedski would have been Canada's best male player ever if he still played for Canada. That tells you something about the tennis talent over here...

But ya, Rusedski would have been our best. And a lot of Canadians that I talked to are a bit bitter that he left us. Same with Mary. But then Canandian tennis is suffering a bit, monetarily. So I can't blame them if they chose to play for countries with richer tennis opportunities and better programs. But then I think to myself that without good talent here, inspiring people to play,.. we will never get up a good enough tennis program that can develop a new talent if there is no one good enough in this country who is pushing the barriers and fighting for improvements. A good canadian tennis player would for sure inspire new players and well as donations by the public and public intrest in general,... things that are right now lacking... (WOW..wrote a lot there).

LOL.. yes we have figure skaters... but have you seen our recent preformance in the Olympics? a handful of medals! The whole country was quite embarraced.......

meh...our figure skaters are all right....
but i'm quite proud of our hockey talent here ...we can always rely on them to bring home some trophies

As for the tennis talent here, i agree with Jexy. We need some good Canadian tennis players to break the barriers. Maybe Nestor will do some of that, but the fact that he's mainly a doubles player means that he gets less coverage.

Re: I know we all love Pim Pim but...

Nestor is great, but he's already too old. Canada needs some new and fresh talent.

hehehe... no problem really.. I actually prefer on the forum to be called Jexy, since Anna is such a boring common name... in my women's tutorial class of about 25 people there are 5 annas!!!
