Well, I think that's enough

Thanks in advance for answering
1 Murray beating Nadal at the US Open, and that's my favourite matchup as well

2 My favourite coach overall is probably Peter Lundgren, cool guy.

3 I think this year's been a bit poor quality wise, but the first two sets of Murray-Nadal at the AO, Llodra-Soderling in Bercy and Djokovic-Federer in New York were probably the best.

4 I love it, and it saddens me that we don't have a team that can win it. If we did, I'd rather win it than one of our players won a GS. The Serbian celebrations did make me a little envious

5 Nadal, from tolerate to minor irritation to dislike.

6 My fave would actually be Simon Reed, despite his notoriety on MTF or making silly predictions, when he's commentating he's alright. My least fave is Mark Petchey, he's too fanboyish and not objective enough, favours certain players.

7 Grass be sped up and clay be slowed down, so that there's more of a diversion between surfaces. Would also have longer grass season.

8 Monte Carlo, Rome, Wimbledon, US Open, Stockholm, Paris-Bercy

9 Never been an actual ATP tourney though been to some exo's

10 I don't remember I think it was through searching for entry lists for tournaments, and steve g tennis was not working at the time. The rest is history.

11 Stefan Edberg, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Pat Rafter

12 Murray v Federer US Open final 2008, Sampras v Kafelnikov RG 1996 and Roddick v Nalbandian US Open 2003

13 I've read Agassi's, and would love to read one by Edberg

14 No though I'm aware one (Xavier7 I think) lives about a 20 minute bus ride from here

Thanks

Why do you rate DC that much that you would even prefer such a victory compared to a GS title?

The patriotism of the participating nations, what it means to the country to represent it plus the atmospheres are very comparable to football with noisy crowds, even hostile ones. Football ultras. If they were at Wimbledon for Murray's matches it would certainly spice things up.

Can't be too greedy. Besides, at that USO he played the best he ever played, dealing with Wawrinka the bogeyman, Del Potro, and then beating Nadal clean, which he didn't entirely do at the AO. If he'd finished that off and beaten Roger there, it would have been more impressive than Rafa retiring and a tired Cilic.

It was okay, I thought his honesty was refreshing but I thought he should have been more honest when on tour, he hid a lot of dark secrets for years.

What do you think of Glasgow Rangers demotion to 4th division?

How many bans have you had in your 5½ years at MTF?

How many voluntary breaks have you had from MTF of any length, and how long was the longest?

* Slams Do Not Exist!

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

1 Amusing, very. There's no way that 'sevco' could have started in the SPL again. Their fans continue to whine and spit the dummy out by not taking ticket allocations in the cup against SPL teams but how could they be let back in when the oldco was breaking a whole load of financial rules?

2 Two. One for breaching a wishing death rule privately in the chat thread. Since then cause of it I've had no sympathy for anyone else caught doing it. The second was a recent 2 week ban for infractions accumulated while helping save MTF from evil forces.

3 None particularly really, though when I go on holiday somewhere I have no interest in coming on here when I have lots to do elsewhere.

1 25
2 my student/university days are sadly behind me. I graduated with a BA Hons degree in Journalism
3 Dry witted
4 Most satisfied with is probably my social life. Most dissatisfied with I would say is my career, I wanna be a writer or work in PR and the jobs in that sector are rare and extremely competitive, and that makes it tough to find my way in so I have to settle for part time jobs at places like hypermarkets to pass the time.

5 3 best traits:
Passionate
Sense of humour
Intelligent

3 worst traits:
Naive
Stubborn
Over-thinking

If you could decide just one sports result in 2013, any sport, what would it be? (winning a tournament counts as one result even if there's many matches)

1 rocket assisted take off

2 My football team getting promoted would render absolutely any sports result imaginable invalid and obsolete. I'd swap Andy Murray's entire career to see my Rovers reach the championship.

1 Tranmere

2 I'm a fan, since 2007 when I saw him vs Roddick at the AO when he led 7-6 5-3. Still hope he can win a GS and that Rasheed can turn around his current predicament. When he's on his game I feel he can still beat anyone despite the slower surfaces he has to cope with.

3 I don't mind him these days. There was one point where his tards were rampant in GM going on about how Murray sucks cos it's 1-0 and he's part of a real big 4 but I enjoyed his play at the Olympics against Federer. He's definitely on the way back. Muzza winning the slam title should hopefully put an end to any silly tard games, as both fanbases are happy and content.

4 A fan Hope he reaches top 10 soonish and kicks on from there. He's got the game to keep rising.

5 Juninho Pernambucano

ACTUAL:

1 Ian Goodison

4 John Morrissey
5 Ivano Bonetti

Those 5 are all legends from my own team.
