    I'm afraid we might have to merge the golden eagle thread with the tribute thread when fedreshs inevitably attains Poobian nirvana.

    LOL,
    Sadly Fed is just not as elegant as Sureshs. Poor Fed is flailing like an amateur. Looks like he is swatting a fly or catching a butterfly.

    Why does he have to be a Golden eagle ? why can't he be a bronze eagle ?

    Bronze is an alloy, you silly. Federer is too arrogant for alloys.

    OK, I'll do it. I know good reverse psychology when I see it.

    Please, anyone have clear pictures of Sureshs's mug from different angles (including sideways)? I already have his front shot which I've used in gems as the one below (No Country for 3.5's), but I need different angles.

    Nightmares on the way tonight for me with a slightly heavy and shadowy Anton Chigureshs standing at the foot of the bed and asking me if I mixed that lucky bagel in with the rest of my bagels.:eek:

    Well, let's just say in the leap years, SexiMasterClass beats Andrew in one slam final. (Wimby 2004)

    Nice catch! Brad Gilbert's protégés, current or former, always succumb to SexiSwissMasterLock in leap year slam finals. It's called "Beating Ugly".

    You heard it first from Ivan. Roger Federer is a human being with observable emotions. This is not tolerable by those of us who subscribe the a pre-WWII vision of manhood and a conviction that a certain range of the emotional spectrum is purely feminine and to be avoided at all costs. Although, comfortingly there is this.

    Well, firstly, that's tears of joy.
    Secondly, that was 2014, where Rafa's back problems started his decline.
    His victory over Novak was highly dramatic, since he was down in that fifth set.
    He must have known it was going to be his last victory at RG.

    Joy, yes. Also, resignation, no? Final major title, tidy little bow on things.

    I couldn't agree more. These are legitimate manly tears. I think I read unconfirmed reports that in a couple of these shots he actually had a compound fracture in his pelvis.

    That's what you get when you fool with Mother Nature...knees, wrists, shoulders, ab tears, pelvic fractures.

    The AO one is not "tears of joy". So yeah. Pot-Kettle-Black. At least Roger doesn't get booed by an entire crowd for taking a phony MTO in the middle of major a major final.

    You have a point.

    Roger would rather simply throw the match instead.

    No questions asked. :rolleyes:

    Better than taking a fake MTO, audience recognizing your shenanigans and then proceeding to boo you, so that you're reduced to tears by the end of the match.

    I have tears over this classic thread becoming a site for flame wars instigated by one particularly boring troll.:(

    Get well soon, SexiRogi. We need your MasterClass ways to restore The Beautiful Game.

    If the gilded avian rises from the ashes in man-ho form, will Rog applaud? Seriously, it's starting to seem like GD could redeem both himself and the entire game.

    People, i wouldn't want to spoil a party, but you do realise that fibrocartilage doesn't regenerate, do you ?

    5 more months won't do a thing for Roger's knee.

    He will have to play with a sore/swollen knee for the remaining part of his career.

    He might even never comeback at all !

    It depends on the person. Some people do regenerate it and some don't. I'd think most athletes do, otherwise they wouldn't last that long.

    A very merry GOATmas to one and all! All systems are go for a return to the team tennis holiday extravaganza that birthed little but pays handsomely. This year, event directors will be bringing proceedings to him. In lieu of the usual gold, frankincense, and myrrh, they have offered a flux capacitor, and he has graciously accepted the gift. He has courteously declined their offer to relocate the event to his Swiss chalet. He shall be arriving via DeLorean winged chariot in approximately one week's time.

    Has anyone melded bitter curmudgeonry and misanthropy into such an utterly charming persona as Sammy C?

    Old Sammy was a century or so ahead of his time in humorously documenting the original Ugly Americans in "The Innocents Abroad" but its sequel, "A Tramp Abroad" was even more dead on as a precursor to my own backpacking in Europe experience. To paraphrase him, I never spent a colder winter than a summer in foggy London Town.:cool:

    One of my earliest biographical forays in school was of said Hucklesaw. My dad was an enormous fan before me, and I determined to peel off even more layers of the onion.

    Took me years to fully grasp the depth of irony in some of his wisecracks.

    GOATherders, I feel moved to reiterate the warm holiday greetings. The shortest day draws nigh, and thusly, revelry is called for once more. The spirit of the season, and the rapid approach of an ever-lengthening dawn compel you:

    Arise!
