Default Re: In the Spotlight - You! 2009 Edition

1) What caused you to join MTF?

Firstly i was looking for a livescore in early 2006 to follow Gonzo and Massú matches and founded MTF and as a great tennis fan i've started to post here and it's difficult to stop xD.

2) Which are your favorite tennis players and why do you like them?

Marcelo Rios. No one can equalize him. A true genius, a chilean living legend, when he wanted he could be unstoppable. Incredible shotmaker, so underrated cause he's southamerican and not american or european. He played the game the way tennis must be played, a mix of all, talent, touch, imagination, creating angles from nowhere. One of the 3 best talents of all time. Too bad he had many mental issues, a so inmatured guy with a rich family who give it all, when he started to mature he got injuried badly and never cameback.

Also i like some great players like Sampras, Courier and recently Nadal, never been a fan of Federer, but his game is amazing. I'm a fan of lefty players like Rios, Muster or Ivanisevic, i can like some ballbashers, some baseliners or even a S&V players.

Finally for sure i like Gonzalez and Massú, but they aren't like Rios. Gonzalez is a great player and probably will past many years and Chile will not have a top player like him, but he's an amazing choker and it's almost a lock that he'll never win a big tournament, he missed many chances. Massú never was a great player, but he's one of the biggest overachievers of all time, winning 2 gold medals and being top 10 with having only "huevos" and a big heart is so incredible. Athens Olympics was amazing, probably the best sports moment in chilean history, the week when both became legend. Still we have a shot in next year DC to do the last miracle before both retire.

3) What are your 10 favorite songs?

Oh man, impossible to do a rank with my 10 favorite songs. I like all type of music. Latin i like Arjona, Juan Luis Guerra, Soda Stereo, Los Autenticos Decadentes, etc. Also like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Guns 'N Roses, etc.

4) What is your philosophy of life in general?
Not a specify philosophy of life at all. Love what you do, and that's all imo.

5) What are your best and worst traits?

Best: Loyal, authentic.
Worst: I'm very shy.

6) If you had to reccomend a book(s) and a movie(s) to other people, which would they be?

I'm not a great book reader and not even a specialist of movies.

7) What would you have written in your epitaph?

Who knows

8) Which other sports besides tennis are you a fan of?

Fútbol!!!! I like also F-1, NBA, NFL, Athletics, etc...

9) What countries would you like to visit and why?

Maybe Spain, Italy and some parts of Europe.

10) If you had one piece of advice to give to others, what would it be?

Think first, act later.

11) Which are your favorite quotes?

Never in doubt, expected one, good for the game, etc... Naah, i dont' know really.

12) What is that you most love and hate?

Love: My family and sports.
Hate: Arrogant and stupid people.

I seriously don't remember why I joined MTF, but I think I found it while googling for tennis news... I started visiting more often though after I first saw Grisha play and found out there's a thread about him over here
Which are your favorite tennis players and why do you like them?
Rafa Nadal, the fighting spirit, the fact that he can turn around a point if he really wants to..
Grisha Dimitrov, I don't know what it is, but I just really like his play, it's elegant yet powerfull.. a mix between Rafa and Roger
Roger Federe, pure elegance, love watching him playing when he's at the top of his game

I like all kinds of different genres: from pop to hiphop, and from rap to soul

What are your best and worst traits?

Default Re: In the Spotlight - You! 2009/ some 2010 Edition

1) What caused you to join MTF? I think I just googled Ferrero and this came up. It was so long ago though
2) Which are your favorite tennis players and why do you like them? Ferrero, Monaco and Robredo are my top 3. And its because I like their games, and then later discovered their personalities were top notch. And yes they are very good looking guys, but thats not the most important thing
3) What is you favorite song? Luna by Astor Piazzolla (can't be stuffed naming 10)
4) What is your philosophy of life in general? Don't expect anything, but take any opportunities with both hands
5) What are your best and worst traits? Best, well apparently I'm a good listener, I'd like to consider myself somewhat intelligent (at least academically). Worst traits would be that I'm a total stresshead, and can get very jealous
6) If you had to reccomend a book(s) and a movie(s) to other people, which would they be? 'My Life' by Fidel Castro and Ignatio Ramonet
8) Which other sports besides tennis are you a fan of? I don't mind soccer, but I'm not a big fan of sports other than tennis. I do enjoy watching the Olympics and seeing sports that aren't often shown on TV though
9) What countries would you like to visit and why? Spain and Argentina have always been my 2 priority destinations.
11) Which are your favorite quotes? "Condemn me, it does not matter. History will absolve me" by Fidel Castro. Its just so dramatic
12) What is that you most love and hate? Strange question. Other than my mum, I love my ex-boyfriend more than anyone else in the world. He also treated me really badly after we broke up, so I really hate him for the pain he's caused me, but I really can't help but feel that he's my 'one true love' if that actually exists, and I've lost it all now

1) What caused you to join MTF?

I used to watch, play and talk alot about tennis with my father, when he died 4 years ago I couldnt share my love for the sport with anyone around me. Most of my friends hate sports or only like football and my brother is completely ignorant on sports so I felt like I had to share all my love for the sport with people, even if I cant see and dont know anything about these people.

2) Which are your favorite tennis players and why do you like them?


Edberg, he is the reason I started playing tennis and watch tennis. I have incredible memories when I was 7 allowed to sit late watching Edberg matches in USOPEN with my father.

Guga, I spotted him winning against Muster and said to my father that this guy will win the whole tournament and my father said that would be impossible. Something about him really got to me, he was completely different from the rest with colorful clothes and a messy surfer style and his tennis was so powerful and different from the spaniards and defensive tennis played on clay at the time. How he won RG 97 just made me a fan forever, beating all the greatest claycourt players in epic 5 set marathons and out of nowhere winning his 1st title in RG of all places!

Federer, I saw him in Milano 2001 and said to my father this guy is one of the most talented players I have ever seen, he will be one of the greatest. IN WImbledon 2001 I saw him beat Sampras (who I really wanted to lose all the time) and the performance made me belive this guy had the potential to be the greatest of all time. My father was a big fan of Nalbandian and it turned out that Nalby was beating Federer all the time and making more progress than him in 2002, in 2003 I knew Federer would win Wimbledon after QF and betted with my father who thought Roddick was too big for Federer. After the SF and F by Fed 2003 I just couldnt belive the kind of shots he was hitting and I knew this player would be a legend.

3) What are your 10 favorite songs?

Idont know, I will say 10 songs that come to mind but prob there are tons I like even more...

Beatles-A day in the life
Radiohead- How to completely disappear
Tom Waits- All the world is green
Bob Dylan- The Times They Are A Changin and It Aint Me Baby
Tom Jobim- Aguas de marco
Chico Buarque-Construcao
David Bowie-Space oddity
Neil Young Don't Let It Bring You Down
Portishead-The rip
Cat Powers-Sea of love
Yann Tiersen-Rue des cascades

4) What is your philosophy of life in general?


To never look back and never worry about tomorrow. I am inclined to have depressions but have found my way to find happiness and inner peace. I try to do things that I am afraid off (many things), I hope to be the kind of person that has no regretts and nothing to hide when I will be in my death bed. I am an atheist so I know I only have one life to do all the things that I like and no other life to undo the wrongs I do to other people in this life.

5) What are your best and worst traits?


Best trait would be that I am very reasonable and calm in stressfull situations, I consider myself also to be a very logical person.

Worst trait would be that it is very difficult for people to become friends with me and I dont open myself up with people I dont know very well.

6) If you had to reccomend a book(s) and a movie(s) to other people, which would they be?


Book: Blood Meridian, Or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac Mccarthy

Movie: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Milos Forman

7) What would you have written in your epitaph?


Life happened too fast, my death will take a while for me to get over..

8) Which other sports besides tennis are you a fan of?

football and hockey

9) What countries would you like to visit and why?


I have visited France, Brazil, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Argentina, UK, Spain.

I would like to visit India, Japan, USA and Iceland. I dont even think I need to explain why, I am just interested in these exceptional places and cultures and it would be lovely to find mew experiences in these countries.

10) If you had one piece of advice to give to others, what would it be?


Live for the moments and dont waste time on people and things you hate, just ignore it. Try thinking and talking about things you like.

11) Which are your favorite quotes?

“Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be.”

"a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"

"life is too serious to be taken seriously"

"We were given two ears and one mouth, so we can hear twice as much as we say."

12) What is that you most love and hate?

I love most my family, then comes sex with women I love, then comes competing about anything with anyone, then comes my mother's food, then comes great litterature, movies and sports, then comes learning new things about life and the world around me, then comes sex with women I dont love.....

I dont care about what I hate, I try to ignore it. But now I guess I have to say something then I say I hate people who are obsessed about things they hate.

monica was such a great competitor, i couldn't help but root for her. i love del potros clean ball striking, chakvetadze is such a clean hitter to and when playing well can make power hitters look stupid. simon is fun to watch when counter-punching and is smoking hot, pierce was the best 'ball basher' i've ever seen.

6) If you had to reccomend a book(s) and a movie(s) to other people, which would they be?

i hate that everyone doesn't have an equal chance in life.
after reading that i feel like i was in a happier place than i am right now. i have been doubting who i am, and what i want from life a lot lately.

It's pretty normal that we go through different stages in life and feel different. Hopefully you can solve whatever is bothering you and feel happier again soon

How about having 10 new questions?

1) When did you start watching tennis?

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

3) What's your favourite match-up in tennis?

4) Do you have any quirks (for example having to check 10 times whether you have really closed the door)?

5) What's your favorite smell?

6) When did you got your first PC? When have you been using the internet for the first time and do you remember which information you searched there first?

7) Which 5 internet sites do you visit regurlary?

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

9) If you had lots of money to spend, which charity would you donate this money too and why?

10) What do you think is the meaning of life?
