I don't understand it either, but I always try to act my shoe size.
Now I am looking forward to being 70 and the youngest player in the provincial 70+ tournaments. Right now those 65 year old kids are kicking my ass in the 65-70 year-old bracket.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

The child within comes out online, so it's usually difficult to judge the age of people on the net.

I just judge people by their avatars. I have a strong desire to throw mud at your face currently.

Calling myself ''buddyholly'' should have been a clue. So I don't think it is much of a revelation. And I gave my real age in my ''spotlight'' thread. But probably nobody ever read it.

I listened to Buddy Holly a few years back. And I like James Dean. I didn't know that a spotlight thread existed.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Our coaches hunt people who come to court in crocs. We have huge signs that say you can only enter the court in tennis shoes, otherwise
