Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

It's hard to say, I guess so, I'm making the assumption that although its perfectly fine to be a fan of a player, you must also like the sport somewhat. In my case I most probably would watch it, but maybe with less intensity.

Is there any rule in tennis you would like to see changed?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

Does it count as a rule - but bring back the best of 5 modus at Master finals.

And allow players to have 5 minutes before they serve - some of the players already do it anyway

(j/k of course)


Same question

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

I agree with Doris about the 5 sets in Masters. Also, more time for rest before the tie-break. Double the usual rest time between points for the 13th game.

Do you get emotionally attached to clothing? I mean, do you choose what to wear based on emotional resonance with an item, or just color/cut and sim.?

Not really. But I do have a pair of Vans which are falling apart which I just won't throw away. Only cost me 50p at a flea market but I have worn them practically to death.

If you could live in any period throughout history, which one would you choose?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

This changes with my interests, right now I'd lean between Ancient Greece or in Catalonia during the spanish civil war.

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

The willingness to think deeper about people's motivations / trying harder to understand where they're coming from and what they've been through, probably.

Same question.

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2



Simialar to what has been said. Basically the ability to think about things. I see so many people going about there lives with so little thought and wonder about life, it's sad and frustrating. People just walk without much purpose...I'm not saying that we all need to think as deeply as Plato, but some thinking is necessary.

What subject are you interested in that you would like others to like as well?

Don't like any, cause' I don't like emperors or leaders.

What is your favorite word?
