Who is/was '90s Clay'? What's his/her legacy on TTW?

Some of these beauties have sadly been deleted, but a quick list below - consider this a "starter pack" of legendary threads:

1. "Poor Murray, got destroyed once more, LOL" - started by some user called Buckethead. Celebrated all of Murray's losses from 2010 till about mid-2015 (when the thread was removed), just seemed to get funnier by the day, especially once Murray actually started winning Slams. Spawned several sequel threads for other top players

2. "Nadal is FINNISH" - started by Halba1 (a Rafa fan) in 2011 I think. One incorrectly spelled word spawned one of the biggest TTW memes going.

3. This - https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/where-is-nadal.526427/

4. This - https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/official-sureshs-tribute-thread.527002/

5. The 90's Clay "NO EXCUSES!!!" and "Federer should just forfeit the match" threads - started on 27 Jan 2017. Came to fruition on 29 Jan 2017. https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/fed-needs-to-just-forfeit-the-match.581652/

6. "It's a digrace, it's an scandal, its a outrage!" (deliberate spelling) - started by Cesc Fabregas, in response to Hewitt getting to play on Chatrier in 2010, relegating Rafa to Court Suzanne Lenglen - used as a basis for all future scheduling controversies and is another source of hilarity among older users. https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/its-a-digrace-its-an-scandal-its-a-outrage.329569/
Some good ones here.

Also let's not forget another famous TTW meme, spawned by this thread: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/nadal-is-the-moral-victor-of-australian-open-2014.489739/

Did you ever hear the tragedy of 90sClay?

I thought not. It’s not a story the Fed fans would tell you. It’s a TTW legend. 90sclay was a Legendary Troll of TTW, so powerful and so wise he could use Shiitposts to troll an entire fan base into a frothy rage. He had such a knowledge of Pete Sampras’ career, he could even make Federer contemplate forfeiting slam finals to save face.

The dark side of shiitposting is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be... unnatural. 90sClay became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he wagered all his shiitposting powers on the outcome of AO’17, then the mods banned him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save Sampras’ career from obsolescence, but not his own.

The world needs a Q and A session with 90s Clay.

I will start a gofundme to make it happen. Any takers? No excuses!!!


They say there are 4 elements to **** posting.

Thread titles.

Only the Avatar can master all 4 elements.

90's Clay was the Avatar of TTW

But right when the online tennis world needed him most, he disappeared

Amateur post above.

Pro's know...it is all about the gif.

I don’t know if 90’s Clay was as prolific a troll as the Bullzilla/Nadal_Slam_King/etc trolling of yesteryear, but he’s definitely an ATG.


I meant on TTW. "SetSampras" posted here too. Can't find that account now but here's him under "GameSampras" with the same avatar:
90's Clay was probably his 3rd account here at least.

LOL. Is "forfeit" his favourite word? :

Then why play Safin.. Just forfeit. Who wants to see u go out there and watch u half ass it. And its impossible? What happened at this very tournament 5 years ago..

Safin has serious mental issues. I would prefer an alternate play Federer. Not that idiot
