exactly, he's an egotistic tennis aristocrat

truth is he just hates players than can stand up to him and beat him, he loves the Kiefer's , Santoro's and Roddick's who roll over for him.

Haha. NID.

And Gab, did you notice GWH never got back to us to tell about the 3 serious Safin fans. I'm desperate. Way more hysterical than last night.

Andrea, the Maderian dickhead = Cristiano Ronaldo. The cockchimp who does nothing in international matches and bangs in the goals against San Marino, Liechtenstein, then does nothing against decent opposition.

Very similar to that donkey Raul.

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".

Of course Muzza pushes when he plays against Federer. He pushes a lot of balls to the backhand, and bigman gets all prissy and wound up and starts spraying like a lawn sprinkler.

I've never said Muzza isn't a pusher - he does push when he thinks the tactics require it. I've never said pushing is wrong either. The object is to win the match and to play the way that best assures that result. If that's pushing, fine, if it's moonballing, fine, if it's bashing, fine, if it's serve-volleying, fine, if it's bombing down aces, fine, if it's ballet tennis, fine.

Whatever works.

Some styles appeal to me less than others but the idea that there is such a thing as a "right way to play tennis" is proper bullshit.

Maria, this is your answer Tupu, Hupu and Lupu.

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".

if only it had worked out that way in the uso final but then again, muzza was so tired because of the scheduling

anyday now, we're all waiting for that first slam that will eventually make him goat

Actually I think he'd be respectful to the point of adoration if Gasquet manned up and beat him regularly with "beautiful tennis".

It's the playing style he's contemptuous of, whether it beats him or not. The fact that it does beat him, though, doesn't improve his mood.

I wouldn't call Feli's BH beautiful but I like his serve and God knows I'm not a fan of this kind of players

Hey, Federer won it fair and square, he played better on the day. Murray's tiredness or whatever was partially his own fault - he didn't need to enter doubles and he might have done better to avoid epics against Llodra, Melzer and Del Potro. Doesn't matter. Roger has won the meeting between them that counts the most and I don't take anything away from him for that.

Scoobs, your Murray fixation is growing.
edit: and no, that's not a "double entendre".

People buying a ticket here will have to give an oath that they will be supporting for Belgium (and they will keep records of it in case of trouble).
That plan has been ridiculed quite a bit here.

Mikey, he has always been like that, remember his press conference after losing to Mantilla, that was almost Tangy like bitterness.

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".
