1 Normally my fave list fluctuates but the same four guys- Steps, Gulbis, Isner, Murray, just tends to vary and Steps was the one I had at the top at the time, he's pure entertainment.

2 For yesterday he is a legenda.

3 Semi finalists, think Brazil or Spain's flair might just undo us, or if it goes to penalties they won't miss them.

1 No, it is unique and diverse, or it used to be, that's what disappoints me about clay now is that most guys play hardcourt tennis on it, the days of Guga playing Corretja are days I miss, though grass tennis is the same, no serve-volleyers or grass court players making the deep end at Wimbledon.

2 Maybe, but the courts are homogenized and the passing shot standard is great nowadays, though that's all I would say is better about the current crop of players compared to the 90s stars. That said the quality of volleying is a lot worse now except for Stepanek, but his forehand breaks down too much and is mentally frail at times and that stops him from going any higher than he can.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

1. Do you think the ATP season is too long?

2. Do people think you are Scouser even if you are not from Liverpool?

3. Is Stevie G the most overrated player in the Prem League? If not, then who is it.

1. Yes, a little. Reduce it by a few weeks. Too much hardcourt tournaments, which cause the most wear and tear on the body. IW/Miami would not be there if I ran the ATP.

2. Not really as my accent sounds more Chester-like than Liverpool-like, despite the fact I am closer by the crow flies to Liverpool. Sometimes people will make the odd joke comment but that is all it is.

3 Up there, but there's a few, for example, Dimitar Berbatov, Emmanuel Adebayor, Joleon Lescott, all were paid way over the odds for.

Far from it, just because he doesn't forget tennis existed before 2005 does not make him like this.

I'm 22

I first watched a tennis match in 95, and didn't follow the sport hugely but watched Wimbledon and the big tournaments. I only became hardcore around 2000.

I just preferred surfaces when they were different and styles were different and it took different challenges to win the different slams, like even in 2001, Guga/Costa/Corretja going deep in RG, Henman, Sampras, Ivanisevic, Federer at Wimbledon, and Hewitt, Safin, Roddick and Agassi at the hardcourt slams.

When guys like Djokovic and Nadal are blowing people over on Wimbledon Centre Court to make the semis and the final there's something wrong, imho.

1. If you had a chance to live in another country where would it be?

2. What is the worst place you have been to?

3. Is Steve Smith the former English high jumper a cool guy?

4. What tournaments would you like to go to, but haven't as of yet?

Far from it. Anyone who watched tennis before that and appreciated it for what it was then is accused of being like that.

Haha it's not about that, it's about the "t'was definitely better in the old days" refrain that some like to chant around, Rocketassist being one of them (but a good one and he knows I'm merely teasing here )

1 Brazil- hot women, amazing accents, Copacabana, football mad.

2 Oldham, Leeds, Birmingham city centre, north London, all shitholes full of tramps and smackheads.

3 Yes he was, he did as well as he could in the big events, hard worker.

4 Estoril, Miami, US Open (though Miami shouldn't be where it is on the calendar)

Some questions for you


1) What’s your favourite match of your favourite player and who is the opponent you enjoy to see him play against the most?

2) Who would be your favourite coach for your favourite player?

3) Which matches do you consider the best of this year?

4) What's your opinion about the Daviscup?

5) Have you ever changed your opinion about a tennisplayer (either positive or negative)? If yes, what was the reason for it?

6) Who's your favourite tenniscommentator and who do you like the least?

7) What would you like to see changed on the ATP tour?

8) What are your favourite tournaments?

9) Which tournaments have you been to so far?

10) How did you discover MTF and why did you decide to join?

11) Who are your favourite retired players?

12) If you could change the outcome of 3 tennismatches which would you choose?

13) Which was the most interesting tennisbiography you have read?/ Which biography would you be interested in reading?

14) Have you met an MTFer?


Well, I think that's enough

Thanks in advance for answering
