The noonday train will bring Federer
If I'm a man I must be brave
And I must face that deadly killer
Or lie a coward, a craven coward
Or lie a coward in my grave.

But Bharath Purohit and TT say otherwise. This is like watching "Rashomon".

Would you lose to a woman for a blowjob????

Lol Gracchus you are funny. I am sure her friend would be humiliated to lose to her and would not have ranked. And from what I have read Helen Wills hit her forehand extremely hard.

You won't address this specifically though.

What exactly do you mean by "research"?

I've tried to explain various aspects of 9/11 already and they were futile.
 
It's best at this point for you to do the research yourself.

My adored Sharapova? You must have me mixed up with Raja?
 
I was never much of a Henin fan for a few reasons. I found her to be a bit of a cheater w/ a bit of an attitude. Each to his or her own. And I might be in the minority but I tend to prefer the aesthetics of a two-handed bh. I do find Federer's bh beautiful though.

Well you're always going on about her "tremendous fighting spirit" and rooting for her against nearly everyone. I think Raja is fixated on certain other aspects of Sharapova. :)
 
> I was never much of a Henin fan for a few reasons. I found her to be a bit of a cheater w/ a bit of an attitude.
 
So she cheated Serena a little. That's ok. ;) What other terrible things did she do--deny that whiner Mauresmo her moment of victory? Attitude for sure, like many players. Sometimes she was less than gracious but not always.

I don't see any aesthetics in the two-handed backhand. In general, it's a more stable shot, and obviously can be tremendously effective. But IMO it's about as elegant as a monkey wrench.

Not to me. I find it very elegant. It's a personal thing. Remember I'm a Borg and Evert fan(they were both extremely graceful players.)
 
I even find Pipe Cleaner's bh to be a lovely looking shot. :)

They were graceful in a machine-like way. I saw their backhands as just very efficient tools. Same with Connors, even though he was one of my faves. But as you said, it's a personal thing.

Lovely? Hmmm.

Two nights ago on Colbert, McEnroe said Serena was perhaps the greatest athlete of all time, man or woman.

Serena did not ask him to leave her alone then? With all these unproveable assertions? :)

Well remember, Fed lost to Haas in Stuttgart (not that that loss meant anything.)
The Nadal-Haas match was an exho match. Exhos mean something now?

Depends on what day it is and who is playing. Some days on RST, exos mean everything. Other days they mean less than nothing. :)

Well she's in London and has confirmed that she will be playing.
