The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

That's not really the English accent though Ush. That's a posh boys accent.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

My accent is a bit messed up.

I'm more West Mids /staffs accent than Worcestershire (I live on the county border) but I also had years of living in Wales and Yorkshire. So if I speak to anyone Northern, my accent goes Northern in about 10 seconds. I'm worse with that than Welsh. When I came back from Wales I sounded quite Welsh but I've lost that and it takes me a good week back there to pick it up again, whereas with the Northern it's literally 10 seconds.

Wilander cannot help but see the similarities between his journey 22 years ago and Andy Murray’s possibilities over the next four days...

...Wilander, the three-times Australian Open champion, said. “Though I won twice on grass, it was not until 1988 that I felt I had the strength and was fast and fit enough to win on a hard court. It makes all the difference in the world.”
Quote:
That is also the viewpoint of Darren Cahill, the Australian who coached Andre Agassi and Lleyton Hewitt at the top of their careers and is now part of the adidas group of roving consultants, as well as a much respected television analyst.

Wilander, STFU

You knew Rafa was fucked for winning the AO when Simon Reed picked him as winner before hand. I swear I'm going to hunt that man down and gag him.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Let me know and I'll get rid of the body or lent you some men

Dr Jules: i don't mind that commentators think Murray is the favorite, he's head to head with Roger in that respect, what I find annoying about Wilander is that he keeps blowing his own horn and hasn't gotten over the fact that Roger has done what he did (three slams in a year) not only but thrice

Envious and pretty annoying
