Well, we're supposed to be bilingual and have 2 first languages but admittedly, most of us are stronger in English than Mandarin/Malay/Tamil.

And believe me, a lot of people here would call him Gas-kett. I don't make the mistake only because I happen to learn French.

You are correct.

Most people over here think I'm female just because I'm a Richard fan. I mean, I am a huge Williams fan too, so does that make me a hermaphrodite?

Re: Slogan?

Thanking God everyday for he choose tennis over rugby...
Passenger of the Gasquet diesel car (slow to begin and to heat but then...)...lol i'm so bad for this kind of things
Practicing Gasquetists.
The new monotheist religion of the Third Millenium: Gasquetism...will spread over the world...lol
Chasing the injury prone Mini Fed lol#2
Sect of the Worshipers of the Goldsmith's Phallanxes lol#3
Believing in the Has been
Stamped fan of the always out of breath crippled Gasquet...
Bees # in the swarm around the guy from Sérignan
Clock/watchmaker's customers
We could make a joke because he'll always saying "fabulous", "voilà" and "tout ça" when he speaks
We could make a joke about all his numerous "tics"/"twitches" or mannerism, unconscious habits...(putting his foot on the line before returning, wiping up his racket grip, his constipated faces, his "minauderies", speaking to his coach during matches as if he could not be heard when the cameras and their close-ups show everything...)
The fact that he's always sweating like crazy ("bubles coming out his shoes" lol) ands always say he'll have to play the "perfect match" next round no matter the opponent...

These are not true suggestions but some things that could inspire those who have better knoledge of English and above all more talent and imagination...

Gaquettards?..."Bof"

You must have written it somewhere before.

Richard fans are supposed to be teenaged girls. And me. Apparently you didn't get that email forward. For that matter, neither did Swiss Mister.

Not a hermaphrodite, a bisexual - since sexuality is what people are basing the gender assumtions on in the first place. Me, I've learned that such assumptions are of no use here in the world of internet tennis chat, where question for the day on wtaworld becomes "So who here is actually straight?"

With that, I'm to bed.

REALLY!

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I don't know. I think it would be nice if we could base it on a pun of his (first or last) name. Eg. Paul en rit

Yeah, as if one couldn't like a player male or female because of his game style and personality...
But we should speak more about tennis in this Richard's forum, that's true...

Well, like you said, people tend to think that Richard fans are all teenaged girls, rather than teenaged girls and homosexuals like Fonsie, so IMO, it's gender-based because everyone assumes that everyone else is straight.

For the record, I AM straight.

If you're Gasquetblowers, as you really ought to be, you can take the word to mean one of the following:

1) People who are very explosive in their passion for Gasquet
or
2) People who blow Gasquet. Just so you know, "blow" is a slang term in english used to mean "oral sex"

Really, I think that those two options sum up everybody's interests quite nicely.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

This cannot be more true.

I am and when I hear jokes like the one about Richard having his hand under the table.

Re: Slogan?

silverwhite, can you PM me the code for your signature?

I'm lazy

Then I can change it when I wake up.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
