Oh you're into tennis! I know tennis a bit! Who's your favorite player and why? You follow it all around the year? My family usually watches tennis, but they mostly follow it during high season(Grand Slams mostly).
Do you know Opeth? That's an important question. T_T
He is a good racer and it is harsh he has not won a championship yet. Why ferrari made him Shumachers shadow I don't know. But next year he has his shot.
It was also bad luck he got a puncture which made him go a few positions down :\
My favorite of all time is Pete Sampras, Marat Safin, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. I like all of them 1)they are really good sportsmen, the most basic thing in the sports is sportsmen spirit. I can't stand players not appreciating and respecting others 2)really talented athletes, 3)they are great for the game, etc.
Yes I do follow it through out the year. If its not on TV, then I look at the results on the net, daily. My father had the opportunity to watch Wimbledon this year. He even got the opportunity to watch the final, Federer vs. Roddick. Sadly I couldn't watch it. The ticket at the final were sold at even £ 20,000, though he got it for free. May be next year I will, I have though watched Dubai Tennis Championship few years back. Its was a wonderful experience to see all the top players.

All I have to say is that Lewis Hamilton performed the best yesterday without a doubt. This just shows he has a lot of talent and I am sure if next year Mclaren give him a good car then Hamilton will take the title ship back FOR SURE
Lol, I get it. Barrichelo gotta be one of my favorite F1 driver on the grid. He is respected by everyone in the grid.

Other than that, when hockey season comes along, everything else is second in my house soooo

They're awesome manga. Women fighting, boobies, and etc. :O
Yu Yu Hakusho?
this shot when Federer played Djokovic in the US Open semi-final? Anyway, it's good to see another tennis fan on MH.
Aizen, Gin, and Tousen, have disliked them since the begining of the series, even when they didn't show their true colors.
The final was amazing, and that shot was epic. I am happy to know, people here at MH know Tennis.
What other players you like Gecko?

It saddens me to see that you don't have Andy Roddick there. He's my like, biggest source of inspiration when it comes to tennis!
I have to agree with you that to be a successful tennis player, you need to master all elements and to be very strong both physically and mentally. I can't imagine the pressure they have during matches.
For example, let's say it's a us open semi, it's 1-1set, 4-5 gems, 30-40 and you have one serve left. I'd wet myself before hitting my 2nd serve...
Nagato (before Peace speeches)
Madara (before he revealed his plan)
And I am busy these days and haven't heard anything new. Currently listening to my all time favorite song, "The stories of the leaves" by Thorns of the Carrion. Epic epic song with best flute ever played.
True indeed, I was playing a local tournament (club) against some outside club, and lol it was like my hands and feet have gone heavy. Shots were so slow, embarrassing was it. The pros are giants, sometimes I wonder, is it even possibler to play so hard with so accuracy. They are so so tough.
I am bit old-timer, like to serve and volley. When you serve and follow it up with a good volley, its really satisfying. Strength, I think my volley and overhead was decent. Weakness, backhand from the baseline. By the way, I am not playing Tennis anymore, only on my Xbox , life has gone hectic and busy.
