Seeing that people enjoyed this thread that mike s. started I was thinking we should have a thread with pictures from various tournaments. Mainly off court pictures. Sure, these pictures could very well go in the respective players' threads, but this would be too much trouble to update.
John Isner, the No. 8 seed at this week’s Rogers Cup presented by National Bank, enjoyed a fun night in downtown Toronto on Monday as the American went to check out the Toronto Argonauts game at Rogers Centre.
Prior to the game, Isner took to the field for the ceremonial kick-off. Following an on-field interview, the 6-foot-9 big man known for his powerful serve showed he could perhaps make a career as a kicker as well as he booted a field goal from the 25-yard line. Argos officials said afterwards that they couldn’t remember the last time a ceremonial kicker actually scored a field goal.
When it comes to backhand slices, Bernard Tomic is your man. This is the kinda guy who can slice bread with a tennis racquet and leave it in an edible state. Bernard's slice backhand isn't just a groundstroke; it's a complete overhaul of the very fundamentals and mechanics that build tennis. You thought Nadal could get high RPM? This thing has so much slice you'd swear you're playing in hurricane. Bernard's slice is the most lethal shot in sport. It'll hit you like a spiked drink in a Brisbane nightclub.
