Do a lot of the pros use AIM/messengers?

Obviously with all of the frauds out there, it's hard to really tell, but do you think a lot of the pro players out there use AIM? I figured most of you already knew about how Roddick's AIM name was leaked not long ago and how I guess he got kind of frustrated with people constantly IMing him. What other pros do you think use online stuff like that, if any?


Serena Williams
Martina Navratilova
Steffi Graf



Andy Roddick | Roger Federer | Venus Williams | Lleyton Hewitt | Maria Sharapova | Justine Henin-Hardenne | Kim Clijsters

lol, I'm surprised there arent a ton of threads about the roddick AIM name thing. I was one of those people that annoyed him LMAO. he only responded to say "who is this" and nothing more but I imagine he'll change his screen name if it keeps up.

Monfils, according to Tursunov:
"Gael Monfils is nuts over MSN. A couple of days ago he was sitting in the lobby and, I’m not kidding, talking on six MSN Windows at the same time. The guy is like Neo in Matrix. He has no idea what he is writing anymore or who he is writing to. He just puts “lol” and moves on to the next window. The girl is probably telling him that her kittens died and he just says, “lol.” At the same time he is listening to Bow Wow and tries to sing along. The funniest stuff on Earth. A French dude is trying to rap! Impossible to watch without a condescending smile!"

Re: Do a lot of the pros use AIM/messengers?

Which one of Andy's screennames was leaked?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

the one that i've found on every website that has talked about this is AndyR82 and it was for AIM. i bet he's changed it or changed the privacy settings by now though. especially since its been broadcasted about globally lol

Tennis players are people too.

I'm sure as many of them have screen names and e-mails as the rest of us. Of course the younger ones would be more inclined to have them.

I really hope this thread wasn't started as a way to fish for names.
