    Federer's feet are the scariest, ugliest feet I ever saw...he has toes as long as fingers and the toes are curled, very bony and look like talons from a vulture. I once saw a photo with him sitting with no shoes and his feet were the worst I ever saw. I wish someone could find that photo and post it.

    Nadal's feet aren't quite as bad...the photo shown is the bottom of his foot with blisters and some medication put on the bottom of the foot.

    Yes Backbored...that is the photo I was referring to. Thanks for posting that photo. Federer's got the most frightening toes I have ever seen.

    I love me some Fed, but his feet look like rakes. Toes are just long and spindly.

    May I refer you to this fantastic thread about Federer's feet? I am sure you will reconsider your position afterwards.:)

    Lol methinks all of Nadal is photoshopped in that pic.

    Looks like the "Federer Photoshopped" thread has invaded this one!

    Okay (giggle), this (giggle) is pretty bad. Also that pic of Amelie Mauresmo and the Middle Eastern guy-somebody on her old website captioned that as he's checking her out and she's checking out his wife!!!!!

    It is. Using google's "search by image" function, I have determined that this is the original image.

    Yes, it is Rafter! I think it was taken after his first USO win.

    ^Also, I agree! :)


    Gotta keep the thread going:

    We had friends over from Australia when he played Goran Ivanisevic at Wimbledon. It was one of the best times I ever had watching any sport.

    Is it just me, or do all Croatian guys look alike? (G. Ivanesivic, I. Karlovic, former basketball great Toni Kukoc) Ha ha ha ha!

    It really is amazing how great of an athlete she is. If she had Venus's body she may have been twice as devastating.

    Yes. And indeed, he invented it, in the late 60's.

    The shot was executed for the first time in 1974 at the courts of the Club Obras Sanitarias of Buenos Aires in an exhibition match against the French player Wanaro N'Godrella. In a official match, the shot was executed by Vilas for the first time in 1975 in the Indianapolis tournament on clay, against the Spanish Manuel Orantes. I don´t remember if I heard some time that he made it in a previous game, but anyway, it's true; and you can see a text of his book "Quién soy y como juego"(1976) in which he describes how he discovered that shot:

    I will try to translate it to english, It´s interesting to make a thread!

    ehhh... tennis has been played for many years, I bet that shot had been hit decades before the late 60s.

    Cab Callaway was doing the moonwalk in the 1930s.
