Talent:

2. Ability of making smooth-motioned and good-looking shots, no matter if a high percentage of those shots happens to send the ball to the parking lot.

Talented player:
~noun
1. Favourite player (of a specific MTF poster) who doesn’t win as much as that specific MTF poster would like to, but he’s still better than the rest.
2. Favourite player (of a specific MTF poster) who once did beat a big name, so he proved his superiority for ever and never and that won’t change no matter how many bagels he eats from big names in the future.

Headcase:
~noun
1. Talented player who smashes rackets.
2. Talented player who gets pissed, depressed or just quits when he´s losing a match, and who could have *clearly* won if he wouldn’t get pissed, depressed or if he wouldn’t quit.

2. When a specific MTF poster’s favourite player had an advantage (match ball, set ball, break ball, point ball, or when he’s just talented --> see “talented”) and doesn’t capitalize it. That proves the player is better than the rival, no matter if the rival is actually able to capitalize his own advantages.

1. Best and most effective, reliable and powerful style of tennis, no matter if a S&V player didn’t win a challenger for 700 years.

UK: Spoiled moronic brats that just aren’t good enough for the freakin’ sport they freakin' invented.

Germany: They used to be good at tennis, but since Berlin Wall was removed, they don’t seem to have a practice place. For God’s sake, build the guys a wall again!
Italy: Really? I though he was from New York, mainly because he doesn’t win a freaking match. He looks moronic anyway.
Japan: I swear I witnessed a promising Japanese player, I saw him, I’m dead serious, but I don’t know what happened to him. But damn, he was good.

My humble contribution:


Mug
1. Any player that loses a match.
2. Any hated player.
3. A clay-courter.
4. Rainer Schüttler.

Pusher
1. A player that makes less UEs than his opponent.
2. A player that doesn't base his game on a blasting serve or a powerful forehand.
3. A clay-courter.
4. Post-2004 Andy Roddick.

Moonballer
1. Rafael Nadal
2. A player that hits the ball with topspin.

Fluke
1. The stage that follows mugness and precedes luck.

Luck
1. Rafael Nadal's middle name.
2. A mysterious force of nature that makes your favourite players lose and/or a hated player win.

Tennis is dead
1. And it won't be alive again until my favourite player wins again.

Never in doubt
1. Maybe by saying this I'll make people forget I said the other guy would win.
2. It was a close match but I knew the winner would end up winning. I just didn't say anything cause I didn't want to spoil the party to you guys.

Nadal middle name is luck.He slides by with his moonballing abilities and the choking of the opponent.

This is the same kind of shitty humour Letterman uses. :zzz:

Quirky, stupid and obvious remarks about the use of words in MTF. How clever and insightful.

So? :shrug: Let people have a laugh. :lol:

Oscar "The King" Hernandez
the most generous and kind tennis player human being of all time, the GOAT and winner of the calender GS annually if bothered, for further illustration, check his MTF 10 commandments:

1- Oscar Hernandez is the GOAT, you shall have no other mugs besides him, and you shall not make for yourself an idol, but The King is ever generous and allows for a huge poster of The King hitting a divine backhand.

2- You shall not make wrongful use of the name of The King, perma-ban is your punishment.

3- all days in which The King plays a match are holy, keep them sacred.

4- The King was not bothered to complete the list of commandments, for he has better things to attend to, oh and you are so bad!

all hail the King!

I assume you have reached that article in wikipedia after discovering you project your absolute desire to be anything different than yourself, the usual simpleton with a lack of capacity to do anything relevant in life, cheering for top players.

That's what gloryhunters are all about.

Lol, I've reached it since you talked about being childish, and you are the only one childish here, with your dull insults. :p
It's not important who I cheer for - whether top or bottom player I can enjoy watching a tennis match. Something which you, with all your big tennis knowledge, seem almost unable to do. Judging from what you write everything is just an endless sequence of mug matches, even Steppa is not safe if he doesn't play well. Kinda sad, no? :p

The Big X (n)
- The set of players still playing tennis that are... "Big."
- The set including all players that have won three matches in a row.
- The set including all players that have won a QF match.

On it's use and history:

Immediate inclusion into The Big X is granted to player Y if Y beats a member of The Big X. Because all players will eventually lose to someone, it is projected that "ATP" will eventually be replaced by The Big X. Because The Big X is an MTF term that has been used for only 1.5 years (some would correctly say that such is in fact a long time at MTF), the collective opinion is not yet concerned with the eventual self-defeating fallacy due to overuse within the framework of the above accepted definitions.

Red hardcourt (n)

- Madrid's center court.
- Any "clay" event at which Nadal loses.

Similar to the grass of Wimbledon, red hardcourt continues to baffle the pros by playing like a different surface. Red hardcourt is slow. It takes spin. It is easy to slide. It doesn't offer a true bounce. Yet it is hardcourt, red-colored. Affirmative.

Wimbledon was faster than usual.
Hardcourt is bouncing balls too high for Federer.


Fast clay plays somewhat like a slow hardcourt.

It must be sort-of the same reason why Roddick performed so well on this clay-
I don't respect Mug Roddick and can't believe Federer got lucky against him. I just don't say it in public unless I want to betray Federer fans.

Where both players have a -20 negative balance of W/UE.
