"I Am Glad To Witness, Your Greatness"

Anyone knows who said this to whom?

It was barely two days ago, too easy I know, but it resonated very well with me, both Speeches in Madrid after the final, lots of warmth, clarity, and genuine respect. Wawrinka btw has also said that Novak was a great inspiration for him, a number of years ago, as did Tsitsipas a few days ago.

In stark contrast to Nadal's imo below the belt jabs in the PC after his loss to Stefanos.

Threads are created with regularity how on earth people can hate Nadal so much, mr Humbleness himself, passing by the fact that people might for good reasons have a dislike for some stuff from him and his madly ambitious, obsessed team. Not to even mention some of his "supporters".

I decided to post this thread to mainly highlight the friendship and respect among many top players, Just a sort of statement placing more weight on positives over endless flaming, inciting mannerless behaviour all too often. Again in stark contrast to all those players laying it all out there time and again, in those semis and finals we all like, and need, so much.

Yeah I want to hear this. He did the same to Kyrgios. Guy is such a sore loser, only gracious in victory.
Rafissante ridiculed Tsits for not knowing that a ball touching a small part of the line is "in", and some more 10-year-old stuff. Just watch the vid, Search for it, Kyrgios said the same thing recently, as you point out. But it's been seen and heard before, so settle the differences on the court, which Nick and Stefanos have done.

good point! ;) (lewbonacci ? lewclid ? archilew ?)

still, needless to say that none of those guys, whether mathematicians or physcians (or both), come close to lew's mastery of random numbers... :)
It has all been hidden in plain sight. He is obviously Lewis Carroll.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (/ˈlʌtwɪdʒ ˈdɒdʒsən/; 27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898), better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English writer of world-famous children's fiction, notably Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass. He was noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy. The poems Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark are classified in the genre of literary nonsense. He was also a mathematician, photographer, and Anglican deacon.

It matches then his other claim about having lived also in the past two centuries etc.

:cool:

grade A passive aggressiveness with a large helping of self-righteousness as well.

congrats, I didn't know such was so easy for some.

The active aggressive version is much more in usage around here, I'm sure someone with your obvious bright mind and observational skills notices "such", as is the case here in post 13351156 by member 51892.

If you don't respond to the content of the original post and instead just pull out some unsupported ad hominem then you will be reported for being both off topic, as well as rude.
