I was at the US Open last year. I seen Thomas Enqvist practicing with another player. He went to sit down and relax and I seen his racket. At the time, it looked like a radical. But if you get close enough, it was an i prestige mid with the cap system. Everyone knows that most of the rackets that players play with today is a paintjob. As he rested, I asked him,"Is that the head prestige racket....Yea is that the prestige"......Enqvist replies,"Yea it's the prestige".......5 seconds later..he turns around to me and replies," Oh NO NO NO NO It's a radical". I found it very funny catching a player in the act of lying. So does anyone else have any good stories on players lying to you. Come on, I know there are some great ones out there. Come join the Art of Lying.

A horrendous miscarriage of justice-a veritable TRAVESTY...imagine a tennis player actually adhering to his contractual obligations.

"Dwarfs even Watergate" screams the 50-point type New York Times headlines...

Get a life, Jaydog.

I once saw J "the Hand" Double H and asked her, "hey, are you really just a 15 year old boy?" And J "the Hand" Double H nodded her head for a second and then was like, "oops! I mean no, of course not."

Phil, I can loan you a thesaurus if you'd like.

P.S. Don't confuse a thesaurus with a dinosaur, a thesaurus is just a book...
