    Danny, Danny! I can admit that you are very good in the trials of sliding somebody. As I know you very well, "the issue is forgotten" phrases are coming every time when you have been caught wrong. Yes, the issue is forgotten for me, don't worry. I don't think day and night about Mozart. I...

    Give a proof, Dan! I already gave you. I don't want to read just somebody's statements. Present your proof that says mine is not right. It's simple when two people have different statements - presenting proofs.

    When you say something give some proof. I can give you several from the times saying it's Schikaneder ONLY. In one of the letters to his father Mozart says that he "loves Schikaneder's libretto". Hier is a copy of the announcement for the premiere of the opera in the Schikaneder's theater. In...

    One should know at first side what is the meaning of the word "dialect". It comes from the Ancient Greek and means ... language. The linguists since many years make a clear difference b/w a language and a dialect depending on syntactical structure, morphological structure and pronunciation. When...

    But of course, Danny. When you are going to work and live in France for example you need to learn and use French. Your English in France doesn't really matter. Mozart's native language was NOT German.

    Danny, Danny, Danny! Again interfering without at least reading what were the facts. More embarrassing is the like of urban who at least can check your words. So, Danny, to the facts and to see how many errors you have. First of all the opera is called "Die Entführung aus dem Serail" ("The...

    No revision, Mr/Ms Schweikart! Personally I don't want to prove anything. I don't change the history. The history is just in the papers. The only thing is that this history has to be read. In details and analytically, from the proper sources. I told you before. If you don't want to read...

    You can continue with your doubtful sources. Instead of that you may see that BERLIN was the capital city of Prussia (and then Germany) from 1701 to 1947 !!!!! Changed from Königsberg (today in Russia). "90% was Poland and Lithuania" but they chose Berlin for capital city !!!!!! Think, dude...

    Good that you put some efforts to find it. I told it's easy. Even though you repeat the same wrong words. The Prussian word "kurpi" which means shoes is TOTALLY DIFFERENT to the old Germanic word "Schoh". This is what you need to see. They were very very different languages. And maybe you don't...

    Hmmm. You are driven by hard patriotic feelings. I understand that. Unfortunately you don't know the history of the multiple languages spoken on the territories of today's Germany and Austria. But don't worry. You are not alone. And internet can't help you. Many many Germans, Frenchmen...

    Ha-ha. You are representing "All Germans"!!! Wow! Maybe you didn't read. The historical facts say about "the language" of his mother and "the language" of his father. OBVIOUSLY they were not the same. Yes, you should know but you don't. The history speaks about the "famous" Prussian language...

    Nope. This time you are wrong. This is the easier contemporary presentation of his life. Already available and confirmed are historical facts that Mozart preferred to speak the native language of his mother, a native Salzburger. He refused to speak "the language" of his father, a native...

    Dan, Dan, Dan, there was NO Germany and even NO Austria in Mozart times. Salzburg was back then an independent city within the Roman Empire, ruled by an archbishop. Vienna was the capital city of the Empire. The Austrian Empire has been founded in the early 19th century during the Napoleon...

    Everything is correct what you say. But the activists do their actions not because of the nationality of Mozart. I mentioned what they said. Re the nationality issue of Mozart the simple facts are that the whole world considered, considers and will consider Mozart an Austrian. At first place the...

    What is your source about Yokohama? Because Sydney Morning Herald from 2 May 1986 says this: "EXHIBITION MATCH In Tokyo Jimmy Connors (US) b Bjorn Borg (Swed) 6-0 4-6 6-3" At the same time a Memphis newspaper says on 3 May that Connors beat Borg in Tokyo 4-6 6-2 6-4, also not specifying whether...

    Calm down, KG! When you have a definite position on something it's fully normal that you can defend it. By just saying that something is absurd is definitely not a defense of your position. First, when using such strongly individual terms like "aesthetics" and "beauty" you need to know that they...

    Whats your top 10 of all time right now?

    Frankly speaking, I read for the first time that aesthetics and beauty of a player are more important than achievements. I am just shocked if you are on a casting for mannequins. In fact, such factors could be mentioned by people not interested in sport but fascinated only by the physics of the...

    KG, we have discussed this issue for a long time. I think you are making one basic mistake about the so called "bonuses". Every reasonable human being needs to make a differentiation between marketing of a product and contents (quality) of the product. Want we or not, the players are also...

    Whats your top 10 of all time right now?

    Unfortunately, until the people don't know (the worse is they don't want to know) full careers and full achievements of the players they would prepare such illogical and non-analytical conclusions. Working with such items like "game style", "impressions", "feelings" or limited data is just the...

    All-time players’ top performance by surface (with a constant update) (hard indoor)

    All current tournaments and most of the past tournaments have / had selection criteria for players' participation. The main criteria is the ranking, using also an "invitational" element like wild cards. That does not mean they are invitational. PGS was a kind of a rewarding tournament where the...

    All-time players’ top performance by surface (with a constant update) (hard indoor)

    Invitational meant to be inviting players without any criteria, just choosing attractive players who get the attention of the audience, TV. Pepsi Grand slam did not invite players (names). It attracted the winners whoever they are of 4 specific tournaments. They invited other players only when a...

    All-time players’ top performance by surface (with a constant update) (hard indoor)

    In fact not the 4 players with the best results at the slams for the previous year but the winners. If a player had 2 titles out of 4 or if a winner had an injury, another player had been invited. For example, in 1977 Orantes played while he has no slam titles for 1976. He was invited as the...

    Fully understandable is that some tournaments were invitational. The organizers, the sponsors, the public, the media want to see the best players on the field. Adding to that also the top money these tournaments were nothing else than a good copy of the year-end finals (Masters). Even more they...
