BG's story about Wilander's fitness

Raul_SJ

G.O.A.T.
Gilbert is getting ready to play Wilander on a really hot, humid day. Gilbert notices Wilander didn't pack any extra shirts. Gilbert asks "Why didn't you bring extra shirts with you"?
Wilander responds "What for?"
Gilbert is very fit himself. Both Gilbert and Wilander are going to be running around the court on the hot humid day. Some players sweat less. But it is not necessarily an indicator of superior fitness. Rafa is one of the fittest players and he sweats a lot.

I know there's no correlation at all, and that I have no leg to stand on, but I needed a quick description that didn't involve a gross thing such as sweating.

I know Mats a bit and have hit with him a few times and he is legendary for his ability to not sweat even in the worst conditions. it's kinda crazy and I can tell you it's very true!
Swedes are generally a very cool race. :cool:
