1) What caused you to join MTF?
I was a long time guest, but wanted to see attachments.
2) Which are your favorite tennis players and why do you like them?
- Beautiful Game, beautiful character, beautiful man
and incredible to watch as you cannae predict whats gonna happen.
- Amazing grass courter, droolworthy backhand, volleys like an old styler and he is just a sweetie
- Lovely bloke, with an impressive game, parallels to Fed aren't wrong.
- Can't fault him, even the 'weak' BH is amazing. Just wonderful. His love of tennis really shows, and it makes him more watchable IMO.
I kinda pick people that do something interesting on court, so you'll always be surprised. I am missing Timmy, Goran and Paddy Rafter and fast grass, and S&V and am gonna miss Santoro now too.
