What do you have in common with your favorites?

Alot of fans are drawn to players because of attributes, traits, skills, backgrounds etc. that they also share.

What's the connection between you and your favorite(s)?

:wavey:

David Kenzie

The palyer who's shares the most of my attributes is Safin
- He's tall
- He's got a two handed backhand
- He likes to play agressive tennis
- He gets easly angry with himself for missing easy shots and smashes his raquets because of it :(

-Service of Safin
-I like pornstars like Capriati... ;)

David gets really tight on the big occasion (serving for sets, matches, playing in Finals etc). I also suffer really badly with "nerves" too, when it comes to things like exams, job interviews, driving test etc. I really feel for him on the big occasion because I know exactly what he's going through.

My serve is like Andy's but a little faster . My forehand is like Rogers but with more variety . My backhand is like Marats with more power and my volleys are like Tim Henmans . Unfortunately I haven't been discovered yet so nobody knows about my hidden talents .

Tim and I are both skinny. We're also not sore losers (well, he used to be but not anymore). Also we're both frustrated about him not yet winning a slam.

Well, I don't play tennis, so I don't have anything in common there...

Let's see... Tommy likes to ride horses, I love horseback riding. I've done it for 7 years, but unfortunately I had to stop because it got too expensive and time consuming :sad: Carlos and Feli are both lefties, as am I. And Rafa and I are both archangels!

Never really looked at it like that! :lol:

well, my fav (see left) is hot and sexy, and so am i.......... :haha: NOT!!!!!!!!!

try again

he's nice, kind, and loyal. ;)
he works hard to overcome a lack of talent ;) ;)
he's cheerful, funny, hopeful, positive (i wish)

it's nothing about the tennis really, but he can play some, make a living out of it, and is grateful for his good luck :lol:

And this month I'm going to break that and so will he. :fiery:

We both like to fire up the lawnmower. Though granted, there's actually a lawnmower in front of me when I do it. :)

Me and Prince William?

We're both born in June.
My Dad is two years older than his dad, and my mom is two years older than his mom, giving our parents the same difference in age.
In the summer of '99(without consultation) we wore the same brand of Nike sneakers (Air Terra Grande).
Venus, the planet of love is in dignity in the sign of Taurus in our charts.
We both have a younger brother who happens to be a Virgo.

Um, well i'm exactly the same height as him, we both have good forehands, we both cheer for the same davis cup team, until he changed we both used prince racquets, we both like tennis, thats all i can think of.

Probably the net game.... though I'm not good enough to serve volley, I like playing at the net. So that's what I have in common with Jonas Bjorkman and Tim Henman, except they're actually good enough to move in behind the serve.

Ferrero... I don't know really.... I'm pretty skinny like him... that's about all I can think of

I hit the ball like Gonzalez ;) Well, on my level at least. And I often don't have the patience to wait for shorter balls, so my skills of hitting winners from the backcourt are pretty good already. Also I play attack on opponent's attack. The tactic is unreasonable on my level when a large margin of error is important but who cares if I enjoy it? :)

This thread is great! :)

My favorite player is Marat. I don't play tennis. But, the trait I have in common with him is that I get extremely upset with myself when I don't perform to my standards or meet my goals.

I usually hang on to something until the bitter end before I'm forced to throw in the towel.

Rogi and i are both Leos and have lucky numbers based on our birthdates. I'm almost certain that Nalby and i have the same size boobs.......that's a guesstimate though. And although he's not near the top of my fav list, Andre and i have the same taste in earrings.

That's a very interesting combination :eek:

You obviously haven't seen Nalby shirtless

It's not that, it's just that I see Nalby's face (with his head shaved a-la Andre) when I think of you, instead of a Carrebean chick! :mad:

Andre is naturally born attacker & fighter!!!
He is attacking even from backhand!
He Rocks, fires the tennis and crowd!!!
Andre plays most beautiful tennis!
I have same roots with him! I fill tennis like he does...

lol, that is a pretty disturbing visual and thankfully i don't look anything like that. It's hard for me to imagine a nose bigger than Rogi's..... :p

Jurgen - we both like skincare products made from natural products. "Shaving is like a daily attack on the skin!"

Jonas - Both lighten our hair... born in same month... we both love it when he wins :scratch:

Jarkko - we're both dags :P

Marat loves to read and so do I. I would love to now what type of books he reads. :)

02-07-2005, 12:49 PM
Good call *~kat.
Next tennis season, should I expect to see you wearing an oversized sleeveless shirt, with sunglasses on (when it isn't sunny!) white shorts (not coordinated) and/or with gravity-defying hair!? (Now that I'm actually picturing you looking like this, it's hilarious! :tape: )

**DISCLAIMER - Just in case anyone who speaks to Jarkko reads this**
I've put together a number of the 'endearing' Jarkko qualities together, and while he may have done one or two of these things, he most definitely has not done them all at once :angel: (I hope!)

Kat!
02-07-2005, 01:38 PM
LOLLLLLLLLLL love that disclaimer >> and these are the endearing qualities aka the reasons why we adore the man.

hmmm I was going to just do the squinting actually! maybe I can squint when wearing sunglasses when it isn't sunny! :D

Hmm... I have a single-handed backhand.

My serve isn't much to write home about either.

That's just about it. We don't look the same, play the same, act the same... I do not share his dubious tastes in 80s rock music.

we both have tattoos
we both are surrounded by beautiful women
we share same sense of humour
but on the court we are different:I play at the net a lot,I have a one handed backhand and play a lot with slice.

Lets see:

- I have a big nose like Roger :eek:

- I have a pony tail like the one Roger used to have (cop-out :fiery: )

- Height and body build is more or less the same

- I like to think of myself as calm and easygoing taking things in my stride (although that does not always work out 100% of the time :tape: )

- We are both shy people who do not like to be surrounded by masses of people but prefer spending time with close friends and family and just chilling out without too much pressure.

- When there is something that needs to be done I focus on getting it done with as little fuss as possible, like Roger.

- We both have single-handed backhands

That's all I can think of for now :p
