Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

I think that the letter of the law should not ever supersede the spirit of the law.

If you had to perform an ATP tournament staff position, which would you choose?

Massage therapist. But I don't think I would last long in that position.

You?

Player courtesy driver. Van preferably

What is something you like that is stereotypically associated with your opposite gender?

I suppose being somewhat more sensitive to people who are not having it that good in life (although this applies to both sexes, women tend to be more sensitive )

What would you criticize about "western culture"?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

A lot, but probably mainly arrogance. Pretending to be better or more important than other cultures and to have the right to attack them, because of "democracy".

Who are your favourite tennisplayers and why? Both ATP and WTA.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Rafael Nadal, All Czechs

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

ATP- Nadal (always liked his fighting spirit, simply does not give up, and I admire that)

To a lesser extent: Hewitt (for the same reasons as Nadal)

Blake (I've always liked his game when on, hard hitting and brutal)

For the WTA: I'd have to go with Henin, I think she's the only one that has a pretty game.

You?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

I tend to like players because of their personalities, that's the main reason why I support my favourite players Stosur and Nadal. I love to watch Sam when she's on fire and Nadal has indeed an incredible fighting spirit, which I like a lot. Plus I started to support Nadal when he was still a junior and only 14 years old. It's nice to see that he's now the best player in the world.

Predictable question, who are your least favourite players, and why?

I don't really have any to be honest.

I mean If I were to say by personality, I don't particularly identify with Soderling, but I don't dislike him.

In the same way, I am not a fan of Roddick's game even if I like his fight, also his personality can range from quite good to brat-like.

But again, I find it practically impossible to dislike or much more hate a player.

Do you find it somewhat suprising to see people split in tennis along Nadal-Federer lines to the extent that if one likes Nadal, the other hates Federer (and visa-versa)?

It's not really a surprise considering the fact that they are huge rivals and would have achieved a lot more as they already have if the other player wouldn't be around. Beside this they are totally different from their game styles.

I think nobody should hate a tennisplayer actually - I mean it's only sports anyway

Same question.

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

Yes, I did not expect for fans to follow these players like if they were football teams.

I do understand the rivalry between them, and that they have different styles, but it is ridiculous to equate there on-court rivalry to fans becoming off court lunatics.

Do you think Murray will win a Grandslam?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

Yes I do...I don't feel like he's hit a huge mental block yet in terms of that, and he's too good a player on hard courts to not snatch an Aussie Open or US Open. That being said, he has to play well every round if he wants to do so.

What color are your eyes?

Blue/grey.

Are you a person who prefers to be alone or to have company?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

Most of the time alone, but company is necessary at times.

What is your opinion on Air Conditioners?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

I don't really have an opinion on them, I only know that they cause me a sore throat They don't seem to be very healthy.

What do you think of gay-marriage?

Re: The Ask The Replier A Question Game #2

It's fine. Anyone can do whatever they choose to do, although In general I think marriage is an out-dated institution.

What do you think about religion?
