In the Hewitt Tipsarevic match right after the serbian hits a flat backhand winner, the romanian commentator on ES tried to appear more smart than he actually is and stated that Tipsarevic hit " a perfect topless ball".

On winning DC and its overall importance in the discussion for all-time greats

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
I remember during the Australian Open a few years ago Wilander said something like "Wawrinka has the best one-handed backhand I've ever seen" and then a few days later during a match he got asked who he thought had the best one handed backhand in the game and replying Gasquet.
Was something similar to that but still what the fuck?
