I agree. Tweener is a vulgar word. Probably a case of Americans fucking with the English language once again.

Though it doesn't even come close to the word winningest. Whichever dipshit invented that term needs to smash their head repeatedly against a brick wall.

Always find it difficult to choose between the Dabul and Djoko one, but I'd give the edge to the USO one because it was a GS and led to game point in an SF match

True... I guess it just doesn't register as much as a GS match in that sense because it was an early round match

That "reverse hotdog" term surely must make our gay MTF friends salivate.

Roger's were incredible of course, but I'm always baffled at the tweener lobs (Blake, Santoro) and how you can hit the ball up going through the legs

I'm pretty sure a lob is what you'd naturally hit off the tweener. If you think about the mechanics of the shot I think it's actually more difficult to hit it flat and pass your opponent at the net. Maybe I'm wrong?
