You make it sound like he can be excused because he's so young, when he's not really all that young. He's twenty years-old, it's time for him to grow up.

Besides, some kids are sensible! *cough* *cough*

sorry, I was part of a thing here on MTF where I played Tennis Tipping Hopman Cup and I joined Team Ireland (and we won, btw because I am pretty awesome at the game of Tennis Tipping ) so I was rotating Irish men in the avatar I can switch back to something else now though

Not planned yet I still want to do May but now my London peeps are talking about getting tickets to the NFL game in October and I'd love to do that. It would be mostly people from the MTF Fantasy Football league, I think me, adee-gee, jayjay and Bibberz, so it would be fun but I'm not sure if I will do both trips or just one or the other I'm more likely to do both if someone lets me sleep on a couch or something so I can cut my costs

That's it though
You can sleep on my couch. It's not that far from London for US standards

20 for men is rather young. Now imagine a 20 year old kid who finds himself rich and surrounded by girls interested in him? Only the best survive these circumstances immune...

Problem is, if he does end up being successful in tennis, we will never see the end of it. He will be too full of himself. RF 2.0

Dom I guess we can all agree on that.

Although we never know, he might surprise us, like Nole surprised the whole tennis community back in the day.

I have no problem with him being a playah, that's part of being a relatively famous young man. He can get up to whatever he wants to in his personal life.

The problem I have is with the garbage that comes out his mouth. I don't think he actually believes he can achieve the stuff he claims he will. Deep down he knows he's not good enough.

He won't be that successful. Don't you worry.

Agreed.
He doesn't have to be as successful to be as arrogant. And I think he might be better than most people think. I am not saying he is the next 10+ slam winner, but looking at the whole field... I don't know... It's not like Nole and Rafa are going to be around forever.

He's going to end up stuck between two great generations. The players that are my age and younger look really good, while Tomic's generation isn't that promising.

I think Nole, Andy and Delpo will defend the fort for another half-dozen years, which is long enough to meet the mid 90s generation, which will hopefully take over.

Tomic will be going places. And his comments are nothing short of hilarious IMO

NOT DELPO?!

Hell yes Delpo. Not Andy

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer
