his behaviour yesterday made me like him a bit less, may be Pete is a glory hunter himself so he likes Roger to win more, and look down on poor Roddick

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: The Chat Thread: Part 2

Pete is a great guy, but he usually exaggerates talking about Roger. As you said before, he is too gracious

Re: The Chat Thread: Part 2

Yes, Roger is a great champion, he is unbelievable player, but Pete is still great (in my heart he will be the best tennis player ever - always!!!). Pete will be the greatest for me despite Roger will have 18 or even 20 Slams. It doesn`t matter for me. I have a big respect for the Swiss and his achievements, but Pete is Pete.

I think Sampras was playing in the toughest 90s era with wonderful champions like Agassi, Becker, Edberg, Lendl, Ivanisevic, Rafter, Courier, Chang, Krajicek, Kafelnikov... Roger has only Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and maybe Roddick. It`s not the same. He is a legend, but he is also very lucky winning every Slams.

I`m staying at home, but my summer holidays began three days ago when I passed all my exams

great passed all your exams, I wish you are going to get good results, are you planning to travel? i used to travel once every year, but may be i am getting aging, i did not travel last year, and this year, at first i was planning to go to Switzerland, but i am getting lazy and don't have strong will to travel, may be I will stay at home and watch us open since i have coverage this year? but due to time difference, i don't think i can watch too much

Re: The Chat Thread: Part 2

he definitely will have at least 19, us open this year and you know, our pete who is less injury free and physically fresh as Roger, still won a slam at 31 and roger is ony 28 this year, presumably that he at least won 1 slam for the next three years, there will be 19 , why why why , Roddick, Nole, Murray all are so useless in winning slams

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

But that is probably why we like Pete so much.

He won his last Slam as not being a favourite and put all his efforts to make it. I can understand why he really doesn't care the record, because he played the tennis for himeself, not for the record.

Sometimes I think Federer is too eager to win something and he really wanna broke the record and being a great great player etc. He doesn't care so much about his opponents, like AO this year, he cried when Rafa won. I don't get it until now. If he is mature enough, he should try to hold it like Roddick did yesterday. It's Rafa's big day, he can cry but not in that ceremony.

Another stupid reason for me not like Federer is he sometimes badmouths to my another favourite player, Djokovic. His remarks are just a little bit sour grape most of time. For me, Federer is gracious only when he won and it is not true gracious.

No matter how many GS he will win finally, Pete is just simply the best. His spirit is the best. He is my standard to rate a great champion, and no one can compete him even Federer won 15 GS now, in my opinion.

Sorry if here is anyone like Federer.

Re: The Chat Thread: Part 2

I am like Serena, i prefer winning slams than being no.1, i don't mind if rafa stays at no.2 coz he already reached number 1 before

yup, i will give some special gift to roger when i could meet him, i will give him rafa and pete's posters to sign, lol

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

don't worry, none of us like Federer here , and as you said I do agree that Roger is a great champion, and i do think he is friendly off court, otherwise he won't be so popular, but he does have to mind his mouth a bit, sometimes a bit too arrogant and sour grape as you said and especially when he lost

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Re: The Chat Thread: Part 2

And one more thing. I like serv and volley tennis, offensive tennis like Pete presented throughout the years and Roger is too passive for me on the baseline. Yesterday Roddick was offensive and really better player, but he finally lost.

Of course Federer sometimes plays beautiful tennis, has magic shots, but he is too defensive and that`s why I don`t like it.

Do you remember mimi Sampras vs Federer match from Wimbledon 2001? Federer was Pete`s copy, grat server, great volleyer, but now? Maybe he is more effective now, he changed his game and won many Slams, but you know he is so different than in the past.

Re: The Chat Thread: Part 2

I think he understood that we have a new and different decade of tennis And better for him is staying on the baseline than going to the net after every serve. Between 2001 to (June) 2003 he didn`t win any Slam when he was a strong volleyer. He changed his tennis and I think it helped him.
