    Thanks man. As I keep saying, I am new here and therefore a bit tentative. I am sure it's just a matter of time before I'll be yet another raging, bile-spewing ****.

    Thats a huge compliment man. Thanks a lot!

    Although I would argue all the big players have fans on these boards who are dripping with class. Not all their fans of course. But some. Thanks anyway.

    Thanks very much. Yeah they're all super Nadal fans aren't they?!

    I recall there is a user on these boards who is a real legend at sniffing out multiple accounts. On the other hand I am but a humble beginner, so if someone claims not be a multiple account user, I shall take it at face value, until such time as I know better!

    Originally from Pakistan; lived almost a decade in the US; living in Europe for the last 3 years.

    Saw His Elegance for the first time at the WTF final, from up close. Will try and watch as much of him as I can while he's still playing. Rotterdam is the next time he plays anywhere close to me. So if it works out with classes etc, I may try and make it out.

    Test cricket is what I grew up watching; it is a unique, complex and utterly absorbing sport - if you know what to look for.

    If you don't, it can be mindless tedium for days on end, with no guarantee of a result. I like to think that it is a test of character for the audience as well as for the players!

    Thanks man! Nice one!

    Well I can do the first in spades. Doubt I'll be doing too much hating on Nads. He may not be my favourite player but I have tremendous respect for his hard work, dedication and achievements. For any pro player really; these guys give their lives for the sport; I feel uncomfortable sitting on my arse pronouncing judgement on people who have all likely achieved more than I ever will.

    That's just my two bits. Clearly most internet poasters disagree. But hey, I'm only here to make friends with like minded people!

    Ha - nice one dude. Hadn't even thought about that!

    Takes a very specific mindset to catch stuff like that, and judging by your avatar you have it in spades....
