    Yeah I'm going for quarters through finals! It's great every year, though there haven't been too many great matches in the past few years.:(

    I'm gonna be there Wednesday and Thursday, so should see a decent amount of matches but still hopefully some good tennis. I went back in 2005 only for a day and it was awesome. Got to see a 19 year old Nadal face off against a 19 year old Berdych under the lights. Amazing. I hope Nalbandian keeps kicking ass.

    Roger says he wants to win 20 Slams before he retires. I hope he uses Cincy as a nice warmup to the Open. Of course Nadal will win, but Roger can still try and hope that Nadal gets injured or something.

    If it was so awful, how come you guys enjoy the joke so much that you still remember it?

    I think you have been retelling the joke to your friends as if it was your own.

    not sure if that's going to be the case in Cincy

    LOL. Don't listen to the haters. Actually I think the joke is really good. :)

    Later that day, Isner walks into his apartment and he finds Mahut playing Doctor with his GF. He looks stunned for a moment, and then he says: "Hey, man, aren't you the guy I met this morning at that bar?" LOL.

    Proof that Cincy is the ream Slam (from Yahoo Sports):

    "The top six men in the world will all be in action Wednesday in Cincinnati"

    I have been a lurker for a very long time now and got an account just in time for the "real slam" this year. This board truly rocks and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all kinds of discussions here.
    And I feel truly honored to make a first post on this GOAT thread.:)

    Well, among the top 4, only the guy with elegant strokes made it to the semis this year :)

    The joke was indeed awful, but the pettiness that motivated it was indeed funny in a perverted way. Don't know other people's reasons but that's why I remember it.

    From this post, I will have to change my mind and hope that Fish will win tomorrow to prove how failed this thread is. Oh, was it meant to be a joke? How foolish of me to think it was serious.

    welcome welcome.
    Know this, new user, that THIS is the GOAT of threads, and sureshs is the GOAT of posters.

    And beware of the banhammer, new users tend to fall under it when they create trollish threads ;-)

    Time for Roger to retire and putter around on the Champion's Tour with a Babolat Pure Drive! He's achieved his goal of 20 Majors!
