Murray - no chance as he is a feminist.
Federer - too nerdy and not sure which way he really swings.
Nadal - too weird.
Djokovic - lived through a war and seems the most normal out of the lot, also more of a man’s man.
Nadal is weirder than the guy who had a "spiritual guru" as part of his entourage. Okay, lol

Easily Murray. He seems really funny and friendly in real life and no-one really has anything bad to say about him as a person. He's also passionate about lots of others sports and enjoys video games which completely fits with my interests so i think we would have lots to talk about over dinner.

I personally think Nadal and Federer would be kind of boring to go to dinner with, Rafa would probably sit there folding his napkin over and over and Federer seems like he would run out of things to talk about and get a bit too awkward. Not sure about Djokovic, he seems like he would enjoy a good laugh but his interests seem a bit too far out for my taste and any mention of spiritual stuff would have be escaping through the bathroom window.

Only dinner/drinks? Or dinner/drinks with some hanky panky afterwards?
Depends on how much swag you have :p

Lol Nadal is the life of the party man. And his perspective on tennis is fascinating. Plus i'd have so many questions about big moments in his career that he's not been asked.

Murray - British, funny, would be the most easiest to understand due to the British lingo and get along with, looks to be the most relaxed and chilled
Djokovic - no chance with all the spiritual, vegan ****
Nadal - just to meet my Tennis idol, sure, but language might be a barrier *shrug* ah well
Federer - i'm black and he seems the uppity elite white class type sipping champagne with a fedora hat, no chance

so Andy
If you watch any of Federer's interactions with others, bar some of his altercations with umpires, Federer is not uppity in the slightest. Not in interviews, not with fellow players or fans. Despite the cool demeanor on court and (likely) business relationships, Federer is one of the most light-hearted and communicative guys on tour at the very least.

Nadal...as presumably his fiancée would be also present and to be sat close enough to smell her perfume and see her eyes and gorgeous soft skin and even just to hear her voice would be just super awesome fantastic.

* going for a cold shower now.

You are right - Rafa is the life of the party man. :)

Fed all the way. I have a friend who did car-service work at RG (picking up/dropping off players) and she said he's so goofy, gracious and always invites her in from the car to eat with him when he is running late. Also always remembers her name when he sees her around the tournament. It's exactly what his fans think he'd be like.

either murray or fed. I'm a foodie and I know fed loves food too,also i feel like he's just a natural chatty person and I can be awkward in person and an introvert and so i feel like he'd never let the conversation die. murray, because i think he is probably the most aligned with my views, atleast from when has been vocal, so it would be interesting to chat with him.


tbqh part of me is curious to sit with nole only so i can ask him about vibrations, telekensis and all that, and i'd be probably need a decent amount of alcohol too while having that conversation.

I don't like to have dinner and drinks with any male, not that there is anything wrong with that.

damn who is this friend and I can be friends with this person. he definitely seems to be very easy going. I do think I'd be slightly intimidated because its fed but i feel like after a few glasses of wine he'll be talking about god knows what and I'll at be at ease.

ofcourse i totally get why you might have that perception but i mean nadal is also a white guy who is rather wealthy and heck has ties to royalty, so idk why fed represents the elite but nadal doesn't

I know I've already gone with my options, but I'd like to elaborate a bit.

I totally see myself having an interesting conversation with Andy so he'll keep me engaged the most. Next is Djokovic because he's a ton of fun and can easily be one of my best friends. I can see us giggling together as is with Andy too (he's fun too). He also has a very strong mind and can be vulnerable at the same time, so I'd probably like to know more about that. Understand his psychology etc.

Nadal has a very attractive life outside tennis and I dig that. If I could speak Spanish I'd spend a lot of time with him. Also, I find him quite interesting. He comes off as an anomaly (but I think they all are more or less) so that's interesting itself.

As to Fed, I think he's a simple genius. I don't know if there's such a thing called simple genius but that's what I am going with. I'd probably observe him more and perhaps, cook pasta together as I enjoy cooking too. He seems to be into food and that would be the common ground between us. But I won't mind taking a closer look into his mind as well.

definitely fedr

he’s by far the most interesting guy out of the bunch

although I’d have to get him drunk so his answers aren’t that PC
Precisely.

Which is why I'd pick Murray probably, to figure out why he is so ultra-PC, whether it's a choice or he's just naturally susceptible to brainwashing.

Does your religion forbid you from dinning with feminists or what?

Nadal weird? If anything he is boring.

Murray of course. Smart guy with a good sense of humor, and a nice person.

I don't know what I would talk to Djokovic about, we have not much in common, and his primary school level jokes would probably make me leave the table before the main dish.

Nadal just seems like a boring company to me.

And having dinner with a faker would be my worst nightmare, so no thanks.

Novak, because that's a guarantee of going to a place with gluten/lactose free options that wouldn't **** my stomach.

My friend is a woman, and a very attractive one at that, so that certainly helps.

She also doesn't fawn over the players which also helps.

Basically this one time they sent a car for Fed, which she drove...and when she got there, Fed & family kept her waiting for a bit (they were at dinner).

So he felt quite bad, and came out to give the driver a sort of "OK, we know we're running late, but please just wait for us and we'll make it up to you" kinda thing.

When he came up to the car and saw it was her, he remembered her immediately, said "Oh hi M_____!", broke into one of those huge doofy smiles and asked her to come on in and have some food and drink with him and the family. She refused, because she understands her credibility depends on not fawning over/intruding on the players even when they offer.

But man, I don't know if I could refuse a dinner date with Fed. Anyone else, sure. But him? I admire her resolve.

From right to left, or left to right, depending on where the ball comes. I guess I see your dilemma.
 
Why on earth would you want to meet these guys? Aside from tennis they have no personality

But it's better for us not to know the kinds of sacrifices the professional-grade athlete has made to get so very good at one particular thing. Oh, we'll invoke lush clichés about the lonely heroism of Olympic athletes, the pain and analgesia of football, the early rising and hours of practice and restricted diets, the preflight celibacy, et cetera. But the actual facts of the sacrifices repel us when we see them: basketball geniuses who cannot read, sprinters who dope themselves, defensive tackles who shoot up with bovine hormones until they collapse or explode. We prefer not to consider closely the shockingly vapid and primitive comments uttered by athletes in postcontest interviews or to consider what impoverishments in one's mental life would allow people actually to think the way great athletes seem to think. Note the way "up close and personal" profiles of professional athletes strain so hard to find evidence of a rounded human life–outside interests and activities, values beyond the sport. We ignore what's obvious, that most of this straining is farce. It's farce because the realities of top-level athletics today require an early and total commitment to one area of excellence. An ascetic focus [37]. A subsumption of almost all other features of human life to one chosen talent and pursuit. A consent to live in a world that, like a child's world, is very small.

The article you posted was written by a Fed worshiper. Rafa has always said:"Tennis is a very important part of my life, without doubt, but is not everything. I have a lot of other things that make me happy..."
