    Alright, let's get this going. If you could coach 3 players about their game, who would it be and what would you say? To make it fun, be sure to include a WTA player.

    Federer "Roger, you need to give yourself a bigger margin on your first serve, you need to get that in 70% of the time and take opportunities to close out points. Take aces as they come, don't try to be overpowering with the 1st serve"

    Roddick "Andy, let's work on a new rhythm on your serve. A more relaxed approach will help you focus a little bit sharper and calm down your motion. I think your accuracy will improve and your serve will become sniper rifle effective"

    Jankovic "No more photo shoots until you win a slam, разумети?"

    Federer: Stop being stubborn and change your playing style. Come to net more often - all commentators have said this for the last 2 yrs but he won't listen, which takes us back to square one. Secondly, believe in yourself - you're federer, after all!!!!

    The entire WTA: Please return to your day job (modeling or whatever nonsense it is that you do).

    Taylor Dent: Please continue to play the way you do.

    Very funny! Also to the poster who told the entire WTA to go back to modeling. This is turning into a funny thread.

    Federer - Time to put your feet back down on the ground

    Sharapova - Straining your vocal chords will not give you a deep sexy voice

    Novak - Just go back to the old racquet

    Ana Ivanovic - Are you really here to play tennis or are you just after Rafael?

    Davydenko - smile a bit, enjoy your game :)

    Monfils - Flashes of brilliance are not going to get you far.

    Rafael - Please just play in your undies so you have no pants to pull down, The TW posters are driving me mad by only seeing that and not your tennis :)
