lmao, Tursonov popped the collar, lets see what happens here.
Yeah, you're right, Safin hits the tar out of the ball. He's just so inconsistent that he is frustrating and entertaining to watch all at the same time.pstour90 said:sorry tiamat if my reply came off angry. i am a hardcore safin fan, so that's why, but i apologize if it came off that way.
Hey thanks a lot. I like safin too by the way. Lots of talent, just needs more between the ears. Thanks again for the score update...looks like bye bye dimitry.pstour90 said:big server the score is 3-0 federer he is serving, so up 2 breaks...not lookin good for tursunov
Hahahaha...it's funny how he can just turn it on and say, ehhh, I'm ready to eat something...i'll just win now...8PAQ said:Fed up 4-0 in the 3rd. He obviously had enough of this match and wants to go watch TV now.
To bagel or not to bagel. That is the question.
Yup,Newberry said:Did anyone else hear Fed let out that swear? He just smiled after he let it slip. The commentators seemed to get quite a chuckle out of it.
Thats the first time I've heard Fed "let one fly".
This is why I get so annoyed about certain posts. I've been watching Fed since Junior Wimbledon, and am fortunate to have been brought up in the lively days of Connors/Mac/ Borg/Nastase.SteveI said:Yup,
Got a code violation... and everything.. and then he was laughing his assss off about it. Knowing Fed.. he just wanted to try it to see what would happen. Guy is best there ever was. By the end of the year (or early next year) he will have the record for most weeks at #1 in a row. Nadal/Fed is the best thing that has happened to tennis in the last 10 years or so. If Rafa did not come along.. how many GS titles would Fed have in a row???
What are you babbling about?whealben said:This is why I get so annoyed about certain posts. I've been watching Fed since Junior Wimbledon, and am fortunate to have been brought up in the lively days of Connors/Mac/ Borg/Nastase.
They were (the first 2 especially) wonderful to watch. They, like Billie Jean and Martina, issued a whole new era into all tennis.
IMHO Fed is the nearest to THE greatest ever. I never thought Sampras could be overtaken so quickly.
So, how great that he can laugh and have a joke.
Equally, at this moment, how many rivals has he got except Rafa?
Rivalry is essential. I can see a few youngsters who'll challenge him, Berdych, maybe Dokovich(Sp?) Gasquet...haven't got the measure of Monfils yet. (Oh, and yes, it wouldn't be a "whealben" post if I didn't include Andy-though not for a year or two. )
So, for the sake of tennis, please let an American get into a pole position to win games. ( Sadly, except for football, if it aint popular in America, then it's not a sport worth supporting. )
And please dont knock this Island nation. We're tiny and tennis until recently has been an elite sport. ( *mad*) There was zero funding, zero suppport from the old farts that ran British tennis.
This is why they're breaking their bones to pay Brad a colossal sum of money. Gawd knows Andy slummed it during his fledging years.
Amazing that at 15 he got himself away from the LTA to Barcelona. His older brother, Jamie, who showed all the signs of being as talented, went with the LTA, and is only just recovering from the horrific experience.
I say it time and time again, you Americans love winners. Oh that we did too. Instead we try and knock them down to size almost immediately.
How sad. Be grateful for the terrific coaches/stadia/ scholarship grants etc etc.you have.
They dont happen here.
Let us go overboard about our Andy. Hell, he aint bad for a Scot.
Am I that obtuse? Do we speak the same language? I was commenting on Newberry's fascination that Fed could swear and let rip, together with some eejits who think Murray is a no mark who "just manages to keep the ball in court".psp2 said:What are you babbling about?
This guy is a mature (oldish) female. Sorry to disappoint. I have explained what I was commenting on in my last postSteveI said:Thanks...
I was just thinking that.. thanks for posting.. what the heck is this guy talking about???
Are you some kind of wizard who can determine a poster's home country based on the content of their writing?whealben said:Ah, dont you just love the all welcoming, all polite Americans.
I'm so glad you aren't representative of your country.
ps. Do you know what "pompous" means? Just wondering.
Have a nice day.
