Lol, really? It must've been some experience, did it snow a lot?

It depends on how much you are willing to spend. I recommend the Stary Hotel, the one the English team was staying in during the footie eurochamps. Classy interior, should easily woo an out and out beautiful woman, The downside is the service.

As far as pubs and clubs go, the only thing that's important for me is good beer, so I'm not really an expert on club scene . I've heard that Bomba at Plac Szczepański is very hip these days.
Well I'm not willing to spend €500 a night, but money is no real major issue here since Poland is pretty cheap in general for me. Checked that one out, has a 4,5/5 star rating for €121 euros a night for a room. Seems nice pal, thanks for the advice.

I like some good beer as well, but in general Eastern European countries do produce good beers so I'm cool with that. Probably won't go drinking and get f*cked up when I'm with her, but I'm not gonna spend all my days over there by her side. What do you mean with hip? I like places with nice music, approachable people and skanks beautiful women.

The World Championships won't be all that interesting if it's just frame after frame of Selby grinding and grinding his way to victory. But he traditionally doesn't do well at the Crucible, so it could be a open tournament.

I definitely remember them playing in the World Championships the year Selby got to the final. My excuse for watching it is that I was very young and very naive back then, and didn't know they were the two dullest players out there.

They probably played a few more times before that, and definitely since.

Re: The Attention Seekers - Tomic the next #1

Makes you look at any Simon-Monfils in a new light, no?


I remember watching once Selby playing Ronnie and I was like Seinfeld Elaine: Die, die, just diiiiieeeee!

I think one of the best ever Ronnie victories was beating Selby in the Masters final in 2009 by outgrinding him. The match was over around 01.00 AM and next minute AO started, which Rafa won. The best three weeks in my sport watching life

I suppose so. I don't mind watching Ebdon because although he has that 'gentleman' image, he can be a bit of a dickhead sometimes and I quite like that sort of drama. Selby, he's too much of a goody two-shoes, has a dull style, and is a boring personality. His nickname is most inappropriate, because I've never so much as laughed while he's been playing, except when he's lost, of course.

Didn't Selby win the Masters the next year, pulling a Houdini against Ronnie? I must admit, even with my attitude towards Selby, that was mighty impressive.

I want Ronnie to come back and annihilate Selby at the World Chamionships, but I fear he's just going to come back to piss about, or not come back at all.

AO 2009 was a great tournament, one of my favourite Grand Slams. So many great matches!

Looks like you let Arsen post again even if you have restricted him to GM.

Andreea will enjoy this quote from Tsonga:

Q. Do you have any sense of why it's not that much on the women's side?
JO WILFRIED TSONGA: You know, the girls, they are more unstable emotionally than us. I'm sure everybody will say it's true, even the girls (laughter). No? No, you don't think?
But, I mean, it's just about hormones and all this stuff. We don't have all these bad things, so we are physically in a good shape every time, and you are not. That's it


This Sloane Stephens can play tennis.
