"He said it was all about putting a good week together. He said Monday, Tuesday and the first half of Wednesday aren't great days, but you work hard and do well. Then, come the second half of Wednesday, you can get a smile on your face, you've done your 2½ [bad] days but combine them with the 2½ good days and it made a good week. Put 52 of those together, he said, and it's a good year." - Gavin Robertson [ex-cricketer], on some career advice given by an anonymous gent. http://www.smh.com.au/sport/cricket/life-after-the-baggy-green-isnt-always-plain-sailing-20120107-1pp83.html

Jimmy Connors' statement: "In an era of specialists, you're either a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist, or a hard court specialist...or you're Roger Federer."   :king: :king: :)>>>> :)>>>>


I can cry like Roger; it's just a shame I can't play like him.
— Andy Murray after losing to Roger Federer in the final of Australian Open 2010


I know he'd like to win the first for British tennis in, what is it, like 150,000 years?

"In an era of specialists, you're either a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist, or a hard court specialist...or you're Roger Federer."
With the emergence of Rafa, Novak and Muzza among others, this quote seems outdated, no? :confused1:

2 Corinthians 1:3-5  3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.
Be the change that you seek.

"The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility and out of self interest for himself, his family, and the future of is country, to resist government abuse of power.  He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state."

Andy Roddick had a contentious clash with Djokovic during the 2008 US Open. Djokovic’s many retirements prompted Andy to riff:

“Both ankles, back, SARS, bird flu, Anthrax, I don’t know, he seems to have everything.”

"It makes no sense to me that we (civilization) keep trying to recreate the “miracle of life” in laboratories as we (civilization) daily destroy the plenitude—we’re learning it’s not an infinitude—of miracles that surround us all." - Derrick Jensen, 'Endgame - Volume 1'.

"CIVILIZED MAN SAYS: I am Self, I am Master, all the rest is Other—outside, below, underneath, subservient. I own, I use, I explore, I exploit, I control. What I do is what matters. “What I want” is what matter is for. I am that I am, and the rest is women and the wilderness, to be used as I see fit." - Christina M. Kennedy.

Sexual attraction or not to a specific race is not a free pass for making what some considered a racially related comment.

Substitute into Llodra's a number of other races instead of chinese and see if it garners the same reaction...... :whistle:
