I don't understand it either, but I always try to act my shoe size.
Now I am looking forward to being 70 and the youngest player in the provincial 70+ tournaments. Right now those 65 year old kids are kicking my ass in the 65-70 year-old bracket.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

The child within comes out online, so it's usually difficult to judge the age of people on the net.

I just judge people by their avatars. I have a strong desire to throw mud at your face currently.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

What on Earth would make you want to do that?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Do you play tennis ?

Calling myself ''buddyholly'' should have been a clue. So I don't think it is much of a revelation. And I gave my real age in my ''spotlight'' thread. But probably nobody ever read it.

Re: Do you play tennis ?

I listened to Buddy Holly a few years back. And I like James Dean. I didn't know that a spotlight thread existed.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Our coaches hunt people who come to court in crocs. We have huge signs that say you can only enter the court in tennis shoes, otherwise

Clearly I wasn't asking you dear. Obviously I already knew your favourite brand was Crocs.
