I remember watching Sampras, Edberg, Becker, Navratilova, Graf at Wimbledon every year when i was really young but not really caring about tennis

my most vivid memory always goes back to Henman v Kafelnikov in the first round one year when Kalashnikov was #3 and Henman nowhere, and Timmy took him out in 5
was 96 i think.

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

I became interested in tennis since the day I accidently watched Montecarlo tournament and got quite taken to Richard Gasquet. Since then I have observed other players games too. I like tennis in general and Gasquet in particular. There are several other players I like and nobody that I hate.
