Weak comparison. Fist pumping is nothing like shirt ripping and doing the 'Tarzan'
From Fed's presser
Q. Regarding big muscles, we saw Djokovic ripping his shirt. What goes through your mind when you see a guy do this? Could you do this?
ROGER FEDERER: That's exactly what I won't do. Other guys do other things. I'm happy that we're not all the same.
I'm definitely not going to do that, especially with my little left arm. It would be a bit embarrassing to do that (laughter).
I wonder if he has his shirt specially made so they are easier to rip. Probably not though.
i knew you could be critical of the nadal... but this is getting better and better !
keep the good work going.
Actually: Nestorović renamed himself to Nestor (No idea, why, it is like to let yourself castrate...)
1/3 names are on: ev, ov, in, ac, ica, ski, cki, čki, ški, and hundreds that ends with other letters.
Sample with letter A:
Аврамов, Адамов, Александров, Андонов, Анђелков, Антонијев,
Антуљесков, Арлов, Арновљев, Арсенов, Атанацков, Аћимов,
Ајдин, Аксин, Алексин, Андрејин, Андријин, Андрин, Аничин, Антин,
Анучин, Арађанин, Арсенин, Арсикин, Арсин, Аћин, Ашанин, Адамац,
Азањац, Алпарац, Апарац, Аћимац, Аћимовац, Аралица, Ађански,
Азуцки, Арадски, Арађански, Араницки, Арацки, Армацки,Ачански,
Абаџија, Аврам, Агбаба, Адам, Андан, Анђус, Антељ, Арбиња, Арбутина,
Арежина, Аркула, Арнаут, Арса, Арула, Арчаба, Атлија, Ашкраба
I'm really amused that 1/4 of this thread is about the roots of Serbian names. It's an interesting history lesson
Like just about everything we talk about here, whether or not we like the shirt ripping is pointless. If you don't like it, no argument in favor of it is ever going to change your mind and vice-versa.
no one can tell you for sure. but estimated guess is that around 2/3rds are surnames ending on 'ic'. where 'c' is actualy a 'ć' letter (its pronounced differently)
Novak is the King! He gets a pass.
Did Federer rip his t-shirt(s) off after his 5 set match last night?
I still say I want to see someone have a downright goofy celebration like immediately taking their shoes off or licking their elbow.
Of course this shouldn't be sanctionized, players are allowed to celebrate in whatever manner they want, as long as they keep it, hmmm, "decent", if you know what I mean nutch nutch etcetera.
That doesn't mean every tennis fan will or even should approve of this kind of behaviour.
Personally I find this monkey-shirt ripping of Djoko's extremely repulsive, especially when it happens in a 4rth round match against an underdog player who's been playing great but just fell short eventually. A little more modest reaction would have suited Djoko a lot better at this occasion, imho.
Djokovic... some five years ago I actually appreciated him. Two years ago, I noticed I had become "indifferent" to him. Nowadays, I root for whoever is playing him. I'm afraid this celebration routine of his has played an important part in that development.
so as soon as he started winning and being dominant you've began to dislike him.
funny because this forum is a proof you're not alone.
Nope, has nothing to do with him winning or losing. Like I said, it has a lot to do with the way he still carries himself - continuously trying to draw attention to himself and his over-the-top celebrations.
I accept those from a young and upcoming player who hasn't yet found out how to "behave", I don't appreciate those from a "mature" player who's already been at the top of the game for a couple of years and who should know better by now.
As an example: I used to dislike certain elements of Nadal's celebrations in his younger days as well. In contrary to Djokovic, however, he's been toning it down and carries himself as a very polite and respectful player nowadays. See the difference?
what makes you think he isnt polite or respectful?
when you win match that moment at the end belongs to the winner, not to the loser.he can act however he wants. not to mention djokovic is extremely passionate and wears his heart on the sleeve.
people not from these parts simply can not understand that mentality, and hold it against him.
Still has a loooooot to do to have decent pectorals....
guys I have new avatar for you all
yeah, because a full pelvic thrust into leg-raising fist pump in the first game of a match is so much more classier.
oh, but Fingerwagger was sooo cute there :???::???:
No, its just to please his female patrons
Now the question is, if he wins in the final, does the shirt come off again? Only if it goes five sets?
I know you're hoping and excited for that.
I certainly won't complain if he does For the sake of the chatter on the board, though, I hope he keeps it on. Are players required to wear a shirt during the match? If not, maybe he'll just play shirtless and the shirt tearing will become a moot point.
Did Del Potro rip his shirt off after beating Novak at Indian Wells a week or so ago?
No. The guy is too classy for a move like that.
He's a Hulkamaniac brother!
Best post right here! Most of these whiners are emotionally dead! Most people love to see people letting out emotions. This is part of sports. It's part of winning. Some people are serious and most likely unhappy in their own lives I've noticed. Let these people sit in judgement and don't worry about them. They are irrelevant.
Dont talk ****
Idiotic. What a dumb concept dictating celebrations
I cannot believe this had a post at all
26.32 posts per day :shock:
have taken time off work to prepare for grad school + discussing matches as i watch them = lots of posts...
i won a friendly match today... my t-shirt is still intact
I doubt it lasted five hours
And this from someone who calls ALL his fans classless (maybe you know them all except me?) and ignorantly calls Nole cvac all the time.
No words for such a pubertal behavior. How old are you? 12?
I like it when Relinquis posts because then I don't have to. quoted for TRUTH.
However, I have referenced the WWF in a positive way in my comments on Murray's on court demeanor, but that was a different context. I don't feel I am contradicting myself.
this doesnt warrent a card in football. The match is over
Cmon it's nice to see his ripped physiche especially after beating another physical specimen ala the golden bull. :lol:
