Re: what is the most overused word on MTF?

Yes, I'd say it's choke, followed by joke. Kind of reminds me of highschool, everyone following along like little sheep using words that a ringleader has invented or made mainstream. I use the word only where it is needed.

Re: what is the most overused word on MTF?

Federer and choke.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Paulo = choker. And it will take more than a win over Canas to change this.

Re: what is the most overused word on MTF?

A bigger problem is the continual misusing of the word choke.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I felt so bad. I didn’t break a racquet for like one month. They are putting so much effort to make the racquets and an idiot like me goes and breaks them
