He would have won more than 7 slams. Ditto Hoad who Whisper raves about.
If he was that good why was he a flop on the pro tour?

Is it McCain's another Russian shoe that would drop?
 
One White House correspondent, speaking on background, remarked on
the unusual nature of the entire morning: None of the press were
alerted that Kislyak would also be at the meeting until photos from
the Russian embassy emerged. At one point the pool was hastily
assembled at one point for what they thought was a photo spray
ending the meeting with Lavrov, but as the press filed into the Oval
Office they discovered instead former Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger sitting there.
 
A Kislyak morphing into a Kissinger behind a smiling Trump shaking
Lavrov's hand - hilarious!

"We have thoroughly discussed Syria, including those ideas about
creating de-escalation zones. We have a shared understanding that this
must be a step made jointly to put an end to violence in Syria,"
Lavrov said.
 
Lavrov added that he and President Trump did not touch upon the
subject of Russia's alleged meddling in the US elections in 2016,
calling the media hype around the subject an "orgy".
 
US officials are harming their own people by saying that Russia might
have influenced the elections and is standing behind US internal
affairs, Lavrov also said.
 
"I think this is even humiliating for American people to hear that US
internal affairs are being governed by Russia. How can it be that such
a great nation is thinking in this way?" Lavrov said.
 
However, reporters apparently would not let the issue lie, repeating
the same question several times. Lavrov was compelled to repeat that
there has been no solid evidence of any meddling.
 
After being asked about the issue for a fourth time, Lavrov looked
somewhat annoyed as he replied that he had "already answered".

Yeah, Trump's exclusion of the press is hilarious. Almost as hilarious as your naivete.

No it wouldn't have been if she had ties with Russia and Comey was investigating it.

Furthermore, I strongly disagree with the assessment that the FBI head
is "the most respected individual in all of the American government".
 
"I remember the Saturday Night Massacre," McCain told the mostly
European and American guests, referring to the 1973 incident when
President Nixon fired the special prosecutor looking into the
Watergate break-in, Archibald Cox.
 
"Probably the most respected individual in all of the American
government is probably the director of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation," McCain said.
 
This poster thinks the American people, generally, has a rather
negative impression of the FBI - too powerful, too intrusive, and not
particularly credible.
 
You don't believe me? Ask people about the FBI's role in President
Kennedy's assassination, in MLK Jr.'s assassination, in J Edgar
Hoover's role in persecuting American scientists ...
 
I personally also do not believe the FBI's conclusion on 9/11. I
believe that I am far from being alone since the term "truthers" has
long been around even before I started posting on these newsgroups.
 
Even the "voices" of the people don't respect the FBI head. Just ask
Hillary, she has blamed two people for her defeat - one of them is the
then FBI director Comey. Nor does President Trump seem to like Comey.
 
When neither of these two rivals "respect (in the sense of McCain)"
the office of the FBI head, millions of their followers don't either.
 
So, QED, McCain is just sucking up the oxygen in Washington and
wasting billions of the American taxpayer money to feed his personal
habits. One of the latest of the billions he is planning to grab from
your wallet and mine is for the alleged purpose of "containing China"!
 
McCain proposes $7.5 billion of new U.S. military funding for
Asia-Pacific
 
What a waste of my money - don't know about yours!

President Trump's sudden firing of FBI Director James B. Comey is bad
for the country and will not be the end of the Trump-Russia affair,
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told a group of foreign diplomats and
experts Tuesday night.
 
Although McCain did not directly accuse the White House of firing
Comey to thwart the FBI's investigation into the Trump campaign's
possible Russia ties, he did say that if that was the intention, it
would fail.
 
[Comey's dismissal may turn the anti-Trump wave into a tsunami]
 
"This scandal is going to go on. I've seen it before," McCain told a
meeting of the Munich Security Conference core group."
 
"This is a centipede. I guarantee you there will be more shoes to
drop, I can just guarantee it. There's just too much information that
we don't have that will be coming out."
 
He called Trump's actions against Comey "unprecedented" and said the
position of FBI director has held special meaning in American public
life dating back decades.
 
"I remember the Saturday Night Massacre," McCain told the mostly
European and American guests, referring to the 1973 incident when
President Nixon fired the special prosecutor looking into the
Watergate break-in, Archibald Cox.
 
"Probably the most respected individual in all of the American
government is probably the director of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation," McCain said. "I'm very sorry that this has happened."

Trump scored his most prominent defender on Wednesday when Senate
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) noted that Democrats had
previously criticized Comey and supported Rod Rosenstein's deputy
attorney general nomination. "Our Democratic colleagues [are]
complaining about the removal of an FBI director whom they themselves
repeatedly and sharply criticized," McConnell said on the Senate
floor. "That removal being done by a man, Rod Rosenstein, who they
repeatedly and effusively praised.

Genie grew up in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Montreal called Westmount. Her childhood home was there. Her father is an investment banker. Westmount is as far from a rural lumberjack/unsophisticated area as it gets. So skriptis*, the ignoramus who probably lives in a hovel in Croatia (where the annual salary is below the average in many developed nations), please shut up. Let's not compare Canada to Croatia in terms of wealth.

More specifically, she is from Westmount one of the most affluent areas in Montreal. In fact Westmount is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Canada. Toronto has wealthier neighborhoods but in Montreal Westmount is the tops.

May be thats why is she is such a brat. And is not concerned with winning as much unless it is against someone whom she bitched about on twitter.

Kyrgios off the court is actually supposed to be the polar opposite of how he is on court. He's supposed to be a mama's boy and is very respectful of his girlfriend publicly which is important.

Yeah I do. They are no Kim Clijsters for sure.
>I like Sharapova too though.
 
> Seriously, who wouldn't rather watch a Bouchard-Sharapova match than any other current WTA match-up? They draw in spectators.
 
I like to see any match which features aggressive tennis and not the granny tennis what Wozniacki, Radwanska, Halep, Cibulkova etc play and any which does not involve the Williamses.
 
So that leaves only Sharapova, Pliskova, Muguruza, Konta and Keys as worth watching. Bouchard has been crap, so doesn't count. Kerber has been Bouchard level this year.

For someone so individualistic you're so funny now comparing
countries and collectives. :)
 
So tell us does Canadian national wealth make poor Canadians feel
better? Doesn't make much sense.
 
It's nothing we haven't expected from you. When did you post
anything logical?
 
The issue was Bouchard, repeat after me, Bouchard? Are you saying
there are no lumberjack towns in Canada? The way she behaves it's
not like she was receiving ballet lessons in her youth. I know
there are big cities there but I didn't get the vibe she was from
such a place.
 
The issues was her upringing, behavior and lack of class. Not her
money, not even Canadian national wealth, have anything to do
with.
 
Money doesn't buy class.
 
 
:rolleyes:
 
 
 
 
As for us, I'm quite satisfied with my country, you name it,
public safety, social cohesion, climate, good looking women (I
get sad and depressed when around ugly people, I've experienced
that feeling of anxiety abroad in a country I won't name). And
yes, with living standard too. Educated people live just fine.

 
 
Quick Google, big mac in usa is 3.57, here it's 2.50, so smaller
salaries aren't that much smaller if the prices are smaller too.
Of course it's not the U.S. or UK standard, but then again, if it
were we'd probably enjoy benefits of diversity, ghettos, trucks,
bombs and machetes too.
 
So, actually, thank God for us being *bellow average to average
first world country*. Being B on a world scale economically with
many As in different criteria is wonderful actually.

The journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that
we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back,
and all turns to silver glass, and then you see white shores, and
beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

Nothing controversial there.
If there was no revolution, of course America today would be more
similar to Australia or Canada in terms of cultural mentality and
politics. It's a fact.
 
And of course, it would encompass whole north America, being huge
state.
 
Otoh, Russians would probably not have sold Alaska to the British.
 
 
Anyway, history is what it is, if someone is speculating it
doesn't mean they're haters.
