    MaliVai was built like a body-builder... more than any pro I've seen so far.

    "lost respect for him" because he seemed "disinterested." Was there some particular reason he should have been interersted? Sometimes we expect too much exuberance from these people. I'm content if I meet one of these guys and he isn't notably rude. Life in public can become a bit of a drag.

    Thanks Sticklacer

    Wow. That is a high tension. Thanks for the offer, but I was just wondering what setup he used when he played Wimbledon. Thanks.

    lol well the fact that no one noticed him except me i thought id at least get a standard "hey nice to meet you", it wouldve been nice. he was just standing there it wasnt liek he was busy...when i asked him for a picture he sarcastically said "whats in it for me", i know he wasnt being serious, but that combined with him not even paying attention was a little wierd/uncomfortable. after the picture i said thanks and i got a "yeah...." as he turned away.
    i mean i still like the guy, i just thought he'd be, eh, nicer
    anyway, thread carry on

    Do yourself a favor and string your RD-7 with a nice quality co-poly, around 50.
