I'm pretty sure it was in the richie chat thread, and Dani *bgt* was the one who mentioned it, if memory serves me correctly.

Your entire perception of the sport will change when you see these guys live. TV does this sport no justice.
Until last year I hadn't seen a live match since 94 and I was amazed (unless my memory is just distorted) at how much harder the ball is hit now. Also the amount of spin that is put on it (by most players not just people like Nadal) is amazing. You just don't see that on the tv. I also didn't realise the athleticism involved. Can't beat live tennis.


I'm not a player of tennis. I used to play badminton a lot when I lived up north but now I just go to the gym and run. I do like playing badminton more than tennis though. I find tennis frustrating I just can't make the ball do what I want it to.

Isn't it awesome. I've been very fortunate in my life and had opportunities to be involved in big time tournaments all my life. There is nothing like seeing it in person. The real beauty of this sport is anybody can play as long as someone close to their level is on the other side of the net.
As for making the ball do what you want it to, no one can all the time. That's the challenge, just increase the number of times you do. In the beginning, it only takes a good shot or two to keep you coming back.

Tennis live is the best thing, the only GS I've never been to is the Australian Open, but thankfully I've gotten the opportunity to go to the other three and it's an amazing experience, now I'm slowly starting to take my kids to tennis events

heck, I LOVE live sports, whether is pelota vasca, soccer, handball, you name it and I'm there, my husband once told me that if I got the opportunity to go and watch live the third division of the Vietnamite handball league, I would!!!

has anyone else read this article, it had me

Quote:
Physically, the players are opposites: Nadal's golden-umber skin, deep-set inky eyes and prominent cheekbones evoke 19th-century paintings of Mayan chiefs; Nalbandian's blond ponytail, long stubble and messianic blue eyes recall a pirate on an extended binge.
Quote:
Nalbandian saunters over to Nadal, his insistent machismo lending the meeting of the two camps the air of the Jets confronting the Sharks, but with high fives all round. Nadal is friendly and polite, but he's subdued, probably because of his history with Nalbandian, who is known as King David in his native Argentina and is a strike-first player who can beat anybody when he's in the mood, which he isn't all that much.

Does this woman write Mills and Boon in her spare time or something.

Vcash bets are up for tomorrow. Some tough ones. I just checked my stats and I'm 15-1 in the last 16 bets. Looking at tomorrows match ups, I have a feeling that will change soon..

it's so awesome to check the differences in venues and crowds, I like the german crowd a lot, been to Hamburg and Stuttgart several times, sadly there's no big tournament on Germany any longer

I dislike the french crowd in both RG and the BNP Paribas Masters, they are really rude and loud and obnoxious

the Wimbledon crowd is more mixed, less tardish but a bit boring sometimes

the USO crowd is different whether is day or night: day crowd is the usual retired/tourist/fan based one, very respectful and knowing, night crowd is more rowdy and basketball-like, people swear and drink there

Haha, thanks nadine. I'm 99.9% sure it was in the castle thread. I think BGT or Dani popped by one time.

Bercy is weird. When I've watched it on tv I've always found the crowd really really rude but when I was there I didn't notice it at all. I would love to go to the Aussie open the crowd there looks great fun.

something about lengths and cleavages and ragged breathing?

and Nalby might be blonde and blue eyed but is nowhere near handsome

the whole "messianic blue eyes" made me remember the crappiest ad I've ever seen a player on (even if the Nole supermarket and Misha Chupa Chups are quite close )





Tori: did you go when a french or spanish player was on? , the tardism/rude levels shot up big big time, I remember a Grosjean match back in 2001, the crowd was , even Seb looked embarrassed
