    He's a great footballer, but a truly awful tennis player. Looks like it's the first time he ever picked up a racquet. Here he is having a 'hit' with his friend Delpo at the O2 (WTF, and, WTF.)

    Saw this in Skysports on Fox Soccer Channel last week. Had to laugh out loud. I'd love to see delpo's soccer skills though. Bet he could have been a good goal keeper.

    Tevez is overrated as a footballer. Glad that Man Utd got rid of him; he was to cocky and arrogant for someone who isn't talented at all.

    Tevez has no arm coordination w/ tennis, but his feet are magic!

    He's as talented as Rooney at least. They play the exact same style with near the same effectiveness. Though Rooney's probably a bit better at finishing and Tevez a bit better at passing.

    I'm sure if Tevez picked up a racquet first he'd be a competent tennis player.

    Probably not a top player, but if he went pro he could survive on the challenger clay circuit- he's got the build for a dirtballer.

    Good thing he chose football, making a decent living- for a hobbit, that is.

    He didn't play that well, SWP was the one.

    Yeah SWP has been possibly our best player so far this season..100% deserves an England call up based on his form so far.

    Thought the free kick was for a high boot? Eh I'm not complaining great strike for the untalented one :)

    He was great yeah, as was Richards.

    Nah it wasn't a free kick, Tevez was nowhere near the ball and he didn't even challenge for it, he knew he wasn't getting there so he jumped infront to try and block the clearance, Carvalho kicked him up the bum on his follow-through.

    If that's a free kick then watch out for everyone throwing themselves in front of players follow-throughs next week.

    These things happen though I suppose, Terry was thrown to the ground by Lescott from a corner, Drogba got the same treatment, Toure handballed in his own penalty area. Man City scored from a handball and a free kick that was generous at best, it happens I suppose.

    I should have said Forlan is a professional soccer player too! It's not well known as Tevez is.
