Re: Tommy playing in Vienna this week!
Are we supposed to be lifting his spirits here? If he reads this he'll most likely wanna jump out of the window! Alright, so he DIDN'T have the greatest of seasons, but like he said once, the # 2 thing and all that is behind, part of a different moment in his life. Now he's got to keep up with all these new young and very powerful players Nadal-style and that's not easy task. Still, he continues playing his classiest tennis, which -let me say this- many of today's players ABSOLUTELY LACK! (including -let me say this- FedEx, who bores me to death everytime) Tennis is not all about winning points and getting on top, it's the pleasure of watching an amazing tennis the sort of players of Tommy or Andre can only give, and that's why I support Tommy's tennis so much. He gives something that makes people stick to the match (exceptions are rare)
He took Germany back to the WG this year, and won the WTC for Germany too. He did a lot this year, considering he injured his ankle in the middle of the tour, and it ain't easy coming back from that like he did. I admire him for his endless optimism, his energy and his "never giving up" attitude, even though he may not be playing his best lately, which, btw, I absolutely disagree with.
P.S.: I'm not pissed off, btw...
