tennis is rly boring. DIScuss.
One vs One. Fast paced, test of wills, stamina, speed, strength. It's just great to watch.
and are generally articulate and pretty funny.
1. lots of shots of scoreboard.
2. taking ages to serve
3. missing loads of shots
4. silly headbands
r u watchin the same thing?!!!!1
Also: Is Fencing a contact sport?
though i AM naming my new cat navratilova.
I could ever conceivably have a crush on would be Feder probably, because he reminds me of Phil Elverum <3
phil is hottstuff.
fist-pumping, headband-wearing Phil?
No resemblance at all?
I WILL LOOK OUT FOR IT IN THE FUTURE!!
is pretty fit, i only just noticed. he's long hair and everything. dunno if he's beck or nadal.
Rafael Nadal is horrible looking.
He's so greasy and sexy and muscular.
the well known way of saying someone is unattractive
well, crly he's not rly my type. he's not nearly weedy and pale enough. but he's not horrible!
Phil Elverum, as an "entity" is about 56855675656296456945247562056207 times more attractive than Federer.
Even though Roger Federer could buy me more stuff.
Mr Massive Forearms
It always bugged me that I couldn't work out who he reminded me of.
to agree with me about a resemblance between people.
My suggestions normally get laughed at :(
i <3 u tom
That and Princess Diana jumpers.
just last WEEK i was searching ebay for diana memorial t-shirts.
britain vs america themed party as!! dont tell anyone IRL..!!!
+ I GET TO WEAR SHORTS. I LOVE SHORTS.
dressed as that union jack woman who's always at Wimbledon and shout "COME ON TIM!" all night. I expect fist pumping.
and i don't need no egging on...
or about something specific?
p.s. when i type in "g" into the subject line on here the first suggestion it gives me is that thing you wrote that made someone leave dis. icant'tbelievethathappenedonmycomputer.
I didn't know about this.
and it will happen ALLLLL over again......
"gave me a semi"
think that was probably you too lol
depends who's playing though. Women's tennis usually is.
they should get back in the kitchen
it's just that women's tennis is lacking in depth and the top players tend to just beat the shit out of the ball with no subtlety or touch. It's a pity that Henin retired and Mauresmo has gone to shit.
you make it sound almost exciting
But yes, not enough netplay or subtlety for women's tennis. The Williams sister are to blame for that. I hate them.
it's also the coaching methods and the fact it has become much more physical. In the men's game you get a good mix of power and variety but it's also a ridiculously strong and competitive era too.
Murray vs Santoro should be great. Santoro is so amazing to watch. Plays two hands on both sides and does loads of weird spinny/trick shots and is about 40.
Sounds like that awesome Iranian guy who does the Legends doubles.
playing with two balls!
going and sitting in umpire chair!
running round to the opponent's side!
hitting through legs!
hitting it to himself!
I went to see him one year. He was great.
it's really entertaining and I love the way it winds up people who take tennis very seriously. It's just he does the same things every single time.
it's something else. Heritage? I dunno.
i get to work from home for the next 3 weeks from tomorrow.
big wimbledon yay!
for wimbledon being good
it's something to watch but I just can't bring myself to care about it.
At least they don't spend half the match passing it around at the back.
Neither of us is going to win this argument.
too many balls. URGH, BALLS.
and never would dedicate time to watching it. But usually if it's on I get sucked in and end up watching it for hours.
So, I think I like it.
I think the only think I have a passionate hatred for is cricket. It makes me upset :'(
its amazing to watch and to play. tactics, strength, speed. its all there.
plus its one of the only sports im good at.
also, ana ivanovic.
and i was expecting some child-like blonde but she is actually well fit. shhit.
something to tip you back towards hating tennis.
i think this is the main problem with the sport.
but shes not.
The actress's name is Dichen Lichman.
she was quite good looking. and i enjoyed the whole crime storyline. jelena jankovic looks like one of those bond villain sidekicks that rightfully ends up falling into a pool of lava at the end.
I like her.
call it quits?
you realy finished it in style.
In an alluring way. She's the one who won mixed doubles with the other Murray, right?
She can do this:
1st picture = what's so impressive about falling over? eh?
lying on your back with your legs in the air is not that impressive?
(YEAH LOL LEGS IN AIR LOL)
but no really, it's not a very hard thing to do, right?
I bet even like, really old or pregnant people are capable of that.
if you dont understand by now, i dont think you ever will.
and didnt want to go out with him or something. that's gotta hurt a brother. being turned by someone who looks someones taken an iron to their face.
START ANOTHER THREAD IF YOU WANT WANK BANK MATERIAL.
judge sports on the sorts of people who like them. And people who like tennis are usually terrible, terrible people.
But if you took away all the context, it's a pretty good sport.
Do you read The Daily Mail?
Have you ever shouted 'Come on, Tim!' unironically?
Did you complain about the Heinz advert?
If the answer to all the above is no, you're OK. If not, you're scum.
But football fans are worse, right?
They all read The Sun and like Page 3 girls. And Carlsberg. And chanting. And beer bellies. And minor hooliganism.
My dad trained me up to hate tennis from a young age, though, so I don't claim it's a balanced view.
but maybe i faux like football out of some sort of working class pride.
because they cancelled cartoons for like a week or something.
but I can like you if you want? Deal?
i have spent far too long being dis's everyman. hate me.
fuck you i bet your face is as piggish as your foot.
i win. no word is as bad as cunt.
Now I just feel bad. I'm not really feeling that much hate for you. This isn't working at all well.
i'll round it off with a yo momma joke, and that'll be it.
yo momma so fat, when she put on a purple jumper kids thought she was barney.
in an advert. And a few people complained about it.
PPL COMPLAINED ABOUT THAT???????/ PPL MUST NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE. EVEN MY MUM AND DAD WOULDN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT THAT.
takin' our Euro 2008's!
to watch tv at night than during the daytime, so they get pissed off when the evenings are full of football and don't really care when mornings/afternoons are full of snooker/tennis.
tv doesnt care about unemployed people
don't care about tv.
like gorgeous george galloway
The sorts of people who love complaining think Wimbledon's the best sporting event of the year (along with the London Marathon).
WimbLOLdon is better?
(sorry if someone already did that one, can't be bothered reading the whole thread)
wimbledon is BORING?????
