Are you a xenophile?

and if so, of what country?

Actually I'm not really a xenophile or anything, but I really like Brazil. I mean: great music, beaches, women, food, fighters, and even tennis players. What more could you ask for?

P.S. 2016 Olympics, I'm so there!

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

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've never been a fan of Brazil, I don't really understand this current global fascination.

It's all about carnival, naked chics and beaches. People think Brazilians are having fan all the time. And "they are all nice", as one poster here thought once.:retard: Take our fellow poster GlennMirnyi for an example.
