That's Google translate for you. I'm just glad that it didn't come out completely nonsensical.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room

I know it would be out of chronological order, but I feel it would be a missed opportunity if you didn't do something on Linzgate. There is SO much material to work with there.

These cartoons are amazing nonetheless.

Does this mean there are no more tales to be told?
I'm sure there's a lot to be told about the WTA players vacations Jankovic getting married and all that!

Film, a mirror of the society. A good half-and-half mix of indie & mainstream.

What's more interesting, Jankovic taking her future coach to sleep in her house in the USA. Husband, wife and coach.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room

I was leafing through an old copy of Tennis Head magazine a while back and came across this step by step illustrated guide on how to play a forehand like Caroline Wozniacki. Most tennis magazines have these, where a coach uses a series of pics to teach you how to play like a pro. This led me to wondering if such guides were really telling readers what separates elite players from us weekend hackers. In any case, who wants to hit a forehand like Wozniacki?

With that in mind, I present Tips from the Locker Room in which a series of top coaches will reveal what really make the top pros stand out, using some legends of the game to illustrate their lessons.

So, without further ado...





Next week Jimmy Connors on the art of intimidation!

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Off season tomfoolery

Of course, even the very best get it wrong sometimes. This is surely not an effective technique for smashing a racquet.

It's all a learning curve isn't it?

Great work Bobito!

I had the basic idea a few months back and it seemed like a good way of featuring a few players who are either retired or no longer very active. There will be a few more to come this off season.
