So, we all know that Vince Spadea is awesome and he's got a special place in the hearts of everyone in this forum. Am I right?

As his um, wife, I think we he needs his own thread in here so we can talk about his stunning good looks, his gangsta rapping skills, his charming ways with the ladies...need I go on?

:o: Pro Tennis Player Vince Spadea Guarantees Top 10 Ranking
with Help from Sport Psychologist

PALM BEACH, FL (PRWEB) September 18, 2005 -- Vince Spadea promises that the best is still to come. This is a promise from a player best known for his determination as a tenacious scrambler on the court. To prove his new commitment, Vince recently began working again with his sport performance psychologist. He now guarantees that mental coaching will help him achieve his highest career ranking ever, top 10 in the world.

Spadea, rarely a stranger to adversity, recovered from the longest losing streak ever (21 straight) before winning his first ATP Tour title in Scottsdale last year. He beat James Blake and Andy Roddick en route to victory. In his comeback, Spadea rose from 229 to a career-best 18 in the world.

Injuries and adversity returned this year as Spadea dropped to 49 this week even after reaching the finals in Newport, RI a couple months ago. "Rather than get discouraged or depressed, itís a gift that Iím as high as 50 compared to where I was when I began the previous comeback," Spadea declared.

"My rise will again be accomplished with help from my sport performance psychologist, John F. Murray, who formerly helped me back from my longest losing streak." Spadea got the idea of daring to make a public guarantee after thinking about great accomplishments and history. "Joe Namath guaranteed a Super Bowl victory when no-one believed in him; the 1980 USA Hockey Team truly believed; nobody thought David would slay Goliath. Even my performance psychologist stuck his neck on the line and lost 64 pounds after he made a public guarantee."

Spadea claims that his public guarantee will help strengthen his resolve and commitment. "Comebacks are never easy, but they are a part of sports, and Iím quite ready and excited about this new challenge. I will achieve Top 10 in the world. I guarantee it!"

Spadea was known as the "giant-killer" a few years back after compiling the best record in the world against top-10 ranked players. He has beaten many legends of the game including Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. His backhand is regarded as one of the best in the game.

more classic Vinny as Tennis Week asks different players who their fave commentators are:

Vince Spadea: "I like Patrick McEnroe and Luke Jensen. I like the former players. The guys who are young and hungry and excited about doing it. And they know the information and the players. I like enthusiasm and personality into talking tennis ó not just the exact match. Patrick's a very interesting guy. Been around a lot of years, obviously had a great career himself. He has a brother who is a legend. There's so many aspects about tennis that he could kind of dig in from. He's from New York, so he's got great personality. Luke is high energy. He's inspiring. He comes up with little, funny phrases. Little nicknames. Little, inside stories about each player or certain individuals. I think Bud Collins has something to contribute also. He's been there so long. He's a historian ó not only for tennis but other sports, writing for the Globe and different coverages like that. He can provide more of a legendary insight. I thought Chris Evert was good. Articulate and smart and obviously a legend in her own right."

So like, Vinnay's ghetto website updates quite often...and these updates are of WAY more importance than those on ar.com ;)

November 25-Vindawg arrived back in South Florida on Wednesday evening and then had a delicious dinner at Max's Grille in Boca Raton. Thanksgiving Day Vince was having a traditional Turkey dinner with all the trimmings at his home. He'll be joined by his parents, sister, niece and nephew among others for the festivities. This weekend Vince will be attending the wedding of longtime friend and tennis player, Jason Applebaum. The wedding and reception will be taking place on a cruise ship in the Port of Miami. Those guests that signed on for the optional "honeymoon cruise" will be departing for the Bahamas. Although Vince did not sign up for that part of the celebration, if he "celebrates" too much, the next thing he could hear by accident may be "Welcome to Nassau"!

Um, yeah. :o
Gotta love the Vinnay.

Spadea no tell-all
Book, coming in March, is `not going to be that bad'

Charles Bricker
Sports Columnist

December 4, 2005

DELRAY BEACH∑ If, as Vince Spadea claims, he's going to name names, he's not ready to name them yet.

His self-styled "behind the scenes memoir" of the men's tennis tour is scheduled for publication by ECW Press in March and, as you might expect from anyone trying to sell a book, Spadea says it will be controversial.:o

But pressed Saturday for a preview of Break Point, he backtracked. Come on. Just one rip job. One provocative locker room story.

"No, no. It's not going to be that bad," he said after playing one of those purely-for-laughs doubles matches on the first day of Chris Evert's annual weekend charity event at the Delray Beach Tennis Center. Work on the book has already become something of an excuse for Spadea's 2005 season, in which he won 22 of 48 matches and had his ranking slip from No. 19 to 78.

"It took a lot of time. I must have written 700 pages," he said. "This next season, I'm going to concentrate completely on tennis."

At 31, the long-time resident of Boca Raton has enough moxie to compensate, at least in part, for whatever 11 years on the ATP tour has sapped from his body.

But if this book puts a few players in an embarrassing light, Spadea is going to find himself fighting some locker room distractions that could disturb the complete focus he requires for his game.

Another comeback needed

Spadea played doubles with Sebastien Grosjean against the antic Jensen brothers and Grosjean, too, needs a comebacker. Once again, injuries were a factor in his season, with a hip this time setting him back for most of three months.

He finished 30-23 but only 10-12 on his best surface, hardcourt.

"One more win at Wimbledon or the French Open could have made a difference," he said, explaining his tumble from No. 14 to 26.

Grosjean will continue into a second year with California coach Brad Stine and will play Doha and Sydney before the Australian Open.

Excerpt from Vinnay's book:
http://www.sportsmediainc.com/tennisweek/index.cfm?func=showarticle&newsid=14402&bannerregion=

"Hey Vince," Alex says, "I'm going to hit with John McEnroe tomorrow. Why don't you two just hit instead." I said that sounds like a great plan. My brother-in-law, married to my sister, Luanne ó together they live in the city with their young son ó comes to my hotel and gives me plenty of cash for expenses. So the following morning I cab it out to Tennisport for the big practice with Mr. Manhattan.

I arrive a few minutes early to stretch and not long after the main entrance to the club opens and through the door steps a salt gray-haired man with a bag of tennis rackets in a backpack. He looks like an older man ready to go to school only with rackets and not books in his bag. He greets me with a confident smirk on his face, shaking hands in a manly arm-wrestling grip, like we've known each other for a while and have been through some great experiences together. Which is not the case, but I know John to be cool, frank, intelligent and opinionated. Yet he still comes off as generous and warm.

"What bring you to New York? A rap video?" he asks sarcastically as he likes to tease me about my rapping interests. I tell him Iím here to hit with him and he says, "You want to hit a few balls and grind? Iíll move you around and give you a good workout." I grin and say, "Sure man, bring it on. I'm going to hit the ball heavy today. Itís the clay court season."

He laughs and moves off into the locker room for a few minutes. We start off by hitting down the middle, but hitting in any fashion with John is intense. He goes for every ball, even if I hit the ball outside the lines. He's digging, coming to net, starting a new rally from any part of the court, hardly taking any breaks; itís non-stop hitting. He goes for a forehand, down-the-line winner and misses long, "No! Make that shot!" he bellows. But he says it with a smirk almost as if heís mocking his own famous reputation for being a perfectionist.

A few shots later he misses another and says, "Can someone tell me what I did wrong on that shot?" His comment is directed at the eight or so people who have gathered in the bleachers to watch us hit. They chuckle, but no one responds, as they assume correctly that itís purely a rhetorical question on Johnís part.

Does John McEnroe really want theirs or my thoughts on the state of his tennis game or is he just frustrated after missing a simple shot? You donít have to be Jim Loehr to come up with the right answer.

I can still see the competitiveness in his eyes. His footwork has slowed, but his will hasnít. His shots still have pace, depth and consistency. His volleys are crisp, effortless and efficient, though he misses more than he used to. Even so, his reflexes are still second to none. Iím hitting fierce heavy- spinning ground strokes in a grunting tireless mode and he could have a Pina Colada in one hand as he easily responds to my shots at his body without a flinch. His volleys cut into the court with minimal bounce and hurry away from me as if Iím trying to run them down on a treadmill.

His serve is as accurate and consistent as ever. His classic stance, with his back facing me as he manipulates his left arm and slices his serve out wider and wider into the service box, gives me a dťjŗ vu feeling of watching the video tape of his brilliant 1980 Wimbledon Finals match against Borg.

John floats into the net smiling as he swats one of my duck-like, returns away with an angled volley that paints the lines. Thirteen years after his last year on tour, I still can't get a lob over his racquet ó McEnroe was famous for his lightening first step when scooting back for an overhead. His conditioning is at a high level especially for someone 46-years-old. His running out wide for balls isn't vintage anymore, but somethingís got to give.

Heís generous and helpful with tips as we play, complimenting meósaying, "nice shot" ó on my winners. On our water breaks we talk about tennis in general. I ask him, "How many majors will Federer win? Will he beat Samprasí record of 14?" Mac responds, "If he stays healthy, he can win 10 maybe 11."

Interesting, Johnny Mac doesn't think Federer can break the record, but he does think highly of him. "Ten ainít too shabby if he stays healthy," he says again. I ask him about his television talk show, The John McEnroe Show on CNBC, that was cancelled at the beginning of the year not even six months after it debut on July 4, 2004. He says the problem was that he had sat through thousands of interviews, but he had been the person receiving the questions and responding. He had never been in the position of asking the questions and listening for the responses. He says that he was just getting the hang of it when they canned him and the show.

"Maybe I should have had you rapping on the show," McEnroe says.

"You know, that would have changed your ratings, John," I say. Actually, the producer for his show came to the 2004 U.S. Open looking for possible guests and I told my agent to try to get me on the show, but his producer said they were only looking for semifinalists or better. That was low, and guess what? Now thereís no more show. Because John wasnít the CEO of flow. Iíve got more dough. My nameís Edgar Allan Poe.

"Hey John," I ask him in all seriousness, "How can I develop a big weapon at the age of 30?"

He doesnít hesitate in responding, "You're better off honing what you have. Consistency is rare in todayís game. But go ahead, try to prove me wrong. You already did by coming back from your losing streak and making a great comeback. The youngsters can learn from that."

Why did you leave this part out!!!!!!!!!!

I check into the hotel and call Paola, a Brazilian-American model I know from Florida, who is living off and on in New York working. Paula and I are just friends so far, but who knows what lies in the future. She's 19 and a girl who defies the word "flaw." She's a 5-foot-8 brunette beauty with brains. Uncharacteristic for a model, she exhibits a voluptuous rump region, too. We get together and have lunch, then go for a little shopping and story telling.


Oh dear. :o
