I will never understand how a fan of Steffi Graf - an authentic, humble and graceful woman - can also support someone like Screamerova.

Good post.
Well, both are blondes. And there the similarities end.

I don't get it either. Nothing appealing about that mercenary Russian bitch or her bashing tennis.

Not any longer. It used to be before she had a breast reduction. Actually, she has a nice toned body. It's her face that is a bit E.T.-like.

Says the guy who just called Sharapova a "mercenary Russian bitch" and has said all kinds of sordid and unkind things about Serena and her looks.

You're right. Sharapova is much better looking. :)

Whatever I might have said, you've said worse. And therefore my statement is true.

No, I haven't said worse, I've just said more. Also, I don't pretend that I haven't said these negative things whereas somehow you want to come off as some angel in this respect.

Hall monitors are allowed this latitude. I didn't make the rules.

Personally, I like the shape and color of her eyes.

No, be specific. Would you think it a big deal? And when talking about
criminality, remember, there's no evidence anyone near Trump knew that
the "dirt" the Russians had on Hillary came from a hacking source.
 
But tell me about both situations: A USA conservative group hacks
Hillary's emails, tells Trump that they have dirt on Hillary, but
doesn't say how they got it.
 
Big deal if Trump says "well OK, let's make a plan to release this
information"?
 
Or what if Trump knew the dirt came from illegal hacking- big deal?

Crime for a campaign official to receive any info, etc from a foreign source!

Any info, wow ...
But good advice would have been OK, no?

...and bageled John McEnroe in the '87 WCT Final, making Mac appear as
a befuddled hack.
 
Mecir was an effin' genius.

Surely had opportunities - Muster at the same time played practically "only-clay" -schedules.

Somewhat true but way less than some want to think.

If we do some deduction and want to build ultimate clay king -> the results would look like Nadal. He is that extreme. He is that great. And his clay greatness is shown on other venues too (bit like Borg - you are exceptional -> this exceptional stuff leaks to some other surfaces too).
 
Sampras actually did OK job on clay (Rome + 2 minor titles + SF/QFs at FO). Of course it feels retrospectively nothing but his game was so totally opposite of clay dogmas and clay instantly nullified his best assets.

6 FOs and 5(consecutive) Wimbledons for Borg. That's more than "leaking." Borg mastered two very different surfaces, which is hardly comparable to Nadal's 10/15 on clay. Lack of HC slams was Borg's only deficiency.

Clay season is typically from April-June. You cannot expect Sampras to play clay events when there are other, more prestigious tournaments being played at the same time. That is reserved for clay specialists.
AZ <arnab.zaheen@gmail.com>: Jul 11 01:44PM -0700

Has more Wimbledons than Lendl, Stich or Krajicek.
 
Has more USOs than Safin, Hewitt or Roddick.
 
Harsh to call him a one trick pony.
