Vamos Berasategui what a guy.

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".

He won 14 tournies, all on clay.
He also played 9 finals including a GS... Roland Garros'94, he lost in 4 against another great player, Sergi Bruguera.
That year he won 8 tournaments, reached his best ranking (7) and played the Masters cup.

Retired early due to various injuries.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: WTF! Hawiaan Forehand Grip!!!

there is a girl in my club who uses this grip. it creates a lot of topspin but her backhand sucks bec re-adjusting takes so long that she rarely changes the grip in time. her knees are shot to hell but i'm not sure that that has anything to do with the grip.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: WTF! Hawiaan Forehand Grip!!!

Oh yes, Berasategui ..he was very good on clay , technically and powerfully ..and i still remember him being a big surprise doing very well and reaching the final at RG 1994..but i guess that was his biggest achievement in his career..he retired at the age of 27 i guess..

a single (pair) of a male and a female,
and made you into nations and tribes,
