    I can see them sponsoring you not to endorse their business. Would that make this blackmail?

    What you are saying is they might even pay a competitor to sponsor me?

    Seems I get no respect (like Rodney Dangerfield).

    With the demise of LuvForty and Dozu, we do need someone to fill the HUGE shoes left empty.
    Welcome to the used shoe market, Suresh.

    Always tough to find a willing and dedicated volunteer, whether to hold the bucket behind the elephant or to drive the bomb into an office building, so we should salute Suresh, THANK YOU.

    Upload a video so them can judge if you are a worth it.
    I guess in 25,000 posts you have one but it would be easier
    if you post the link here , to avoid everyone here to do the search.
    How old are you by the way ?

    There is no age requirement for the position of bucket holding behind an elephant.

    Can't we all just chuckle a bit in the spirit this was intended? While he has strong opinions, sureshs has been very clear that he is not an elite level player, so he's basically just poking a bit of fun at himself. Laughing at oneself is a good thing.

    What is the oldest age at which someone went pro? I know the actress Elizabeth Shue tried at the age of 40 but couldn't.

    I don't know but if you need rackets I have four old Wilson Blade 98's I can give you. I just got the new Blade 98 -- I will never use another racket again. This is the best racket Wilson has every made.

    hehe this is pretty funny stuff, suresh. Thanks for some good laugh.

    While this thread may sound like a parody, I have a feeling that "suresh" type of player actually identifies with more TW visitors and customers than those that compete in serious tournament do. I mean, you gotta be a little nut and impulsive and doubtful about your game to keep looking into buying all the new technologies and whatnot. :)

    I buy 4 frames at a time, fearing it would be discontinued, as if I need that exact racket for ever to maintain my level.

    Why would you want to be another run of the mill sponsored players? You need a different niche, man, like how different wrist bands would help or hurt a 3.0 pusher's game. I'm also dying to know if the FO apd is going to increase my forehand's rpm. I think my 2012 apd is overdue for replacement.

    Young sureshs is a great player with talent. However, since he is a Nadal fan, he gets little respect here.

    I'd happily sponsor him if i were in the US and had money. However, I seriously suggest that suresh try his hand at a more intellectual career -- his talents are clearer superior there. I am sure Google would be proud to employ him.

    I was sort of reminded of Sunset Boulevard.

    Henceforth, in polls in the Match section the last poll option should be "suresh" instead of "Connors in 5".

    Suresh,

    I just noticed that you are gaining momentum on the thread count than the TLars thread.

    Congratulations!

    i happen to own a well-used pair of shoes that have seen serious ITF action over the years.
    i would happily let go of them if suresh agrees to stop posting here for a month:)
    btw, wrong forum

    I'd happily sponsor Suresh, but I don't want Federer losing to a Qualifier in Round 1 of a slam.

    Suresh could be the next Federer.

    Looks like his issues had consequences. Did not seem to take much at all to push his buttons causing him to lash out. It's almost as if he was deliberately trying to get himself banned. Perhaps he will resurrect as arch4.

    Being that's your IQ and your waist line as well, there are a couple of foundations that might sponsor you.

    I can see sureshs walking onto the court in Monte Carlo, screaming "They're all foot faulting, I see it!"
    Then getting escorted away by security.

    I say yes, but only if you wear a visor mounted 'shot cam'. ;) Perhaps the visor itself could bear the "TW" logo? Talk about great video!!! BHBH
