Re: RIP Henry Chinaski

Funny, intelligent and knew a lot about different subjects not just sports related. Loved his metal music as well.

There were some health issues, but he kept that stuff to himself.

“ 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".

Re: RIP Henry Chinaski

I thought this was a joke, he posted a couple of days ago. One of my favorite forum members. It was always interesting reading him and he was a helpful guy.
Sad news really.

I'm really sad to hear this. Big loss to MTF but nothing compared to his personal friends and family.

I'm in shock. I wasn't reading his blog, but I never skipped his posts here. He was funny, witty and really knew his tennis. RIP Steve.

Re: RIP Henry Chinaski

He just stood out in this place full of lunatics because he was a very smart guy. Never had a row with him, even though we disagreed the odd time here and there, he was just too intelligent to pick him up in some nonsense and even if you caught him, he still knew how to shrug off it. I´m sure he will be missed by many people. RIP H

Re: RIP Henry Chinaski

Unreal. I am trully shocked. Cannot say much right now. Just that I am really sad to hear this. Hope he RIP and all the condolences to his family and friends which are the people who are going to miss him more (even if he's a huge lost to MTF itself).

Re: RIP Henry Chinaski

Really? That's a shame. I remember having some fights and arguments with him in the past, but for the most part he was a great poster. Good knowledge on tennis and a funny guy with what seemed to be many friends on here. May he rest in peace
