    Bill tilden all the way he made tennis famous in America and brought glamour to tennis. Big bill was also the first American to EVER win Wimbledon. Nobody in tennis history has crossed over to Hollywood and pop culture and is still talked about in the history books as Bill Tilden.

    As far as I'm concerned, what Bill Tilden did to teenage boys negated everything he ever accomplished on the tennis court.

    The individual clearly has some mental problems. He was making about 60 posts a day considering he was banned over half the time, and had half of his posts removed while here taken down for trolling purposes.

    LOL, this is rich!
    NadalAgassi, there was once a poster (Davey25) who made several accounts, and all but one has been banned. would you consider such an individual to have some mental problems as well?

    I saw that Cup8489 had a discussion with 6:1 6:3 6:0 and after that he was banned. :) I don't know about Forza. Prisoner of Birth has ruined GPPT section with old threads...

    Yeah, I know what you mean. That whole "Wawrinka actually won the match against Djokovic" thing was utterly childish.


    edit: Wait are you talking about POB or NSK? I think both are obsessive and annoying.

    I doubt it. He mentioned a month ago he was threatened with a permanent ban.
