Boiled Egg,

You see the heated debates on this board about the status of the ATP.

What do you think???

More precisely,

what's your opinion on the status of the game?

I wouldn't call them debated.

I'd call them you making a new thread every 5 minutes about how mens tennis is sad, and everyone else telling you how wrong you are.

But different strokes for different folks.

Pete doesn't count as a nobody TBE, but nice try ;)

So, why say Year of Mr. Nobody?

Maybe, if you think everything's fine with the ATP, then it's a great year for men's tennis as there were 4 Grand Slams and 4 different winners.

Maybe Year of the Atp? or Year of Everyman?

*sigh* If you don't like the terminology used tennis FOOL, stay out of threads. The ATP is fine, contrary to what you think. TBE is just saying that two unexpected people won slams, hence the term "nobodys".

ATP is brill as you never know who is going to win each week.

you got more chance winning the lottery than predicting the winners of tourns.

thats why its highly enjoyable.

Tennis Fool, I'm sorry but I thought this was a message board where I was free to respond as I chose - much like you are.

So why did you slam me by saying "You post every 5 minutes, blah blah blah."

Does the word "hyperbole" mean anything to you??? Hmm????

No tennis fool, I'm illiterate :rolleyes:

I'm not slamming your opinion, I merely question it.

As you are free to question mine, or I wouldn't post it.

hehehe, i should thank those people who keeps on bashing pete, these pump him up, pistol pete is always pistol pete, always shot down people at cruical moments, thanks pete ;D:D

yeah, Men's tennis is doing just fine. 4 different winners this year. Who'd want to see the same person win every slam? ;)

I start to like men's tennis now :) It's so unpredictable to predict the winners. Not only we have four different grand slams champions in 2002, we also have four different finalists :)

Australian Open: Thomas Johansson def Marat Safin
French Open: Alberto Costa def Juan Carlos Ferrero
Wimbledon: Lleyton Hewitt def David Nalbandian
US Open: Pete Sampras def Andre Agassi

It's much better like this than what happens in women's tennis now... For me, to have for Williams sisters final in the last 3 grand slams is so unbelievable... Will other players ever get the chances to be a grand slam champion??? I am not Williams' fans but I don't dislike them either... But to see them playing the final everytime is not interesting anymore... Well, hopefully some players will be able to raise their bar and challenge the sisters, then WTA will become interesting again :)

Pete has made this US Open so special to me :) For me, he is not "Mr Nobody"... Pete will always become a contender evertime he enters a tournament :) Congrats Pete, and hope you may win many more grand slams in the future :)
