Let's get silly! If the Tennis-Genie grants you 3 wishes, what would you want? For me,

#1. Miss Navratilova marries a healthy young athelete and gives birth to a couple of kids.

#2. I want to see more Serve & Volley action in ATP and WTA.

#3. Genie makes sure other wishers cannot change back the changes he made for my #1 & #2.

Seriously.

Tenny.

1. I get the spin and accuracy of sampras's serves and the speed of roddick's serves.

2. Pete comes back to play for a few more decades.

3. More S&Ving in the modern game.

lol this is selfish, but i would wish for

1. Federer's game (this includes movement, strokes, service return, everything except serve)
2. Roddicks 1st and 2nd serve
3. We could have a grand slam tournament with all the top players at their best such as Lendell, Bjorg, Connors, Sampras, Federer etc when they were at the top of their game

I'd just like to have a 5.5 version of the game I have now. That way, I'd be able to play varsity tennis at my school, and I could still play the way that I play. It also might get me a scholarship, and it would get me a good in on some coaching/teaching jobs. Thats it, just a 1.0 bump in rating.

I would have to wish for:

1. Federers' game (Everything except returns and serve)

2 Safins return of serve

3. Johannsons' serve

That's a complete player!

#1: I become the greatest player of all time winning the real "Grand Slam" 15 years in a row (thats 60 slams).

#2: I receive an endorsement deal from nike for $5,000,000 a year (I am not selfish).

#3: I get to bang Sharapova, Sabatini, Kournikova, and young Evert all at the same time whenever I want!

1) Weather is always perfect, high 70s, slight breeze, little bit of cloud cover so the sun isn't blinding during serves and overheads.
2) All of my partners/opponents stay healthy and available.
3) Kids get old enough that I don't have to find babysitters for evening matches.

No. 1 is certainly plausible with the whole surrogate mother thing, as well as artifical insemination (sp?). As for as marriage, the g a y thing might get legalized in the future.

1. I hit a harder serve.

2. There`s always an abundance of players readily available to play on free club courts in eterrnally perfect weather.

1. I turn 60 this year. I would wish for more years to play tennis.

3. See 1 and 2 above.

Camilio Pascual

1. Amanda Coetzer and I go on a date to a baseball game.

2. During a 17 year pro career, I am never ranked higher than # 24 in the world, am universally criticized by press and fans as a, in the words of Jon Weirthem, "...deplorable, inexplicable, and tragic squandering of potential talent...", and then win Roland Garros and the U.S. Open, barely get to #1 at year's end, and retire.

3. Injury free.

Kaptain Karl

2 - I modify Camilio's. Injury free with excellent effortless fitness.

Wow, I thought world peace was being ambitious!

I personally would relish a battle with aliens, think about it. If humans had a greater opposition, they would need to work together to fight them. Today we fight because the great differences we see in between nations. If a freakish race of aliens attacked us, we'd realize how much alike we actually are.

Yeah man, I'd love to be with Kristin as well. Wow, I really messed that up. (need to know raftermania to get this sentence).

If the tennis genie got amnesia I'd request three more things:

1. Banish shootermcmarco to hell for taking advantage of an amnesic genie
2. Stop people from running with scissors
3. $10,000 shopping spree at TW :mrgreen:

[while in hell]

1. unban shootermcmarco, bring him back to earth.
2. replace shootermcmarco with raftermania.
3. tennis genie goes back into his bottle to live in happiness for eternity (thus not accepting anymore wishes, which includes raftermania).

For certain womens matches (selected by us on TW) to be played best of 5 -> nude.

The 'certain matches' was included so some players could be excluded if you know what I mean.
