    I am convinced that given the right arrow you can become the best indian.

    It's Davydenko (for starters).

    Is this some kind of proverb for best racket = best player?

    If so then no. A racket is only as good as its owner.

    Haha my dad told me this when he taught me how to play. I was only little, so it took me a while to figure out.

    "It's not the arrow, it's the Indian."

    I just read in an interview that Davidenko (spelling?) changed to a racquet with 18 mains and that his control of the balls was amazing. Same indian different arrow. Right?

    How much the actual racket affected his game I do not know but not everyone is talented enough to become a professional tennis player no matter how good their racket may be.

    Actually the racquet would be functioning more as he bow in this analogy. The ball is like the arrow.

    BTW how hard is it to spell Davydenko? Take the time to at least spell his name right if youre going to start a thread about him.

    LOL I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. No doubt this will give rise to 20 thteads spreading rumours about Daddy Venko's wife being pregnant. Ooooops, forget I ever said that. LOL

    I think a lot about the Miami win had to do less with the racket than with the big sigh of relief he must have had when they decided to leave him alone after the gambling fiasco (persecution?)

    Being relaxed and feeling good must have helped him produce his winning tennis.

    Come on guys. I made a serious observation about the "indian vs arrow" subject and you guys make fun of poor me and poor "Daddyvenko" jejejeje. Caramba.

    i think the racket change is just as much a psychological help to davydenko as it is a physical help. If you really feel a certain racket makes your right arm complete, then it does. Get my drift?

    Not really. Where I come from is called ignorance exposure.

    It doesn't bother me. If someone wants to communicate in another language I don't have a problem, I don't have a stupid remark about terrorism to make. That's was my point.

    E naduvas my jaja. Pa ako mozes nadji prevod right back at you.
