Da Caro Brigade!

What up, mi posse. Let's make some noise, yo.

Got backhandsmash on beats, DIAH rocking the mic-ro-phoooone. MC Chrissie-fan and DJ protoss provide some crucial rhythms. Cap420 and marineblue representin' up front of the house. Bruce and Schiller givin' no disrespezzy.



And many thanks to Burisleif for allowing us to play at his superbly refurbished venue.

Who's Louise Hazel??If she's Sabine Lisicki's personal fitness trainer,then she deserves a long stay in the unemployment line.Then again,Sabine probably has a perfectly legit injury that she got from carousing with a male exotic dancer at the Auckland player party

I think the celebrity lifestyle's become so deeply linked with the concept of the professional athlete so much now that the issue isn't how many matches you win, but that you appear to win the 'correct' matches and 'correctly' disregard other tournaments which, now you are a 'celebrity', are too much for you to lower yourself to the level of playing in.
Yeah, and then they're wondering why oh why there's few rivalries and why womens tennis isn't as interesting as the mens.

She's a heptathlete and also hawt. Won the Commonwealth Games gold medal. Although, granted, that's not particularly difficult.

As for the exotic dancer thing, I have no idea whether that's true or if it's one of your jokes.

Indeed.
I respect Hazel's athletic endeavors then;that's a nice accomplishment

Aye ALSO don't know if Sabine managed to injure herself with a male exotic dancer;I meant it as a mocking comment yet it's certainly plausible in her case

As for the tired,dinosaur-age myth that men's tennis is better,see sig below: Wake me up when Nole,Fed and Rafa are playing against each other...before THAT,

I really like Murray and Mayer. Fine, they haven't won any slams yet but they're great to watch.

Have some vague recollection that some guy named 'Mayer' plays in the ATP;all I know about him is that he's virtually zero threat to challenge the Triumvirate,and it's hard for me to rate someone like that as "great".

As for Murray,there's no question that he's a talent but--and I hope that I'm not offending patriotism for your adopted U.K.(I promise to never insult any South Polar players)--he went into total chickens--t mode when he faced Fed in the men's AO final(was that 2010?).It would've been different if he had been some inexperienced teen in his first big match vs. the living legend.He just 'pushed' the whole match as if he were waiting for Fed to beat himself with UEs;he was scared to even go for his shots,a totally cowardly strategy.He'll have to redeem himself somehow for me to EVER consider him a great champion

Good thing, he's hired Lendl then. He lost like his first 4-5 GS finals, but still won a crapload later on. Seems like a perfect match for Murray.

Aye, I think Lendl's a good choice.

As for Mayer, he's probably not going to win anything major but he's sorta in the Santoro-vein of tricks and stuff. Well worth watching if you're into that sort of tennis.

That's not a bad argument from you two;good luck to Murray in his quest for the big breakthrough

The mods finally had enough with the crap in the Woz-Petra results thread. I even contributed at the end with some stupid off topic posts. 500 posts for a Hopman Cup match...wonder what happens if next time they meet, it's in a slam?

These are the kind of posters who watch a Roadrunner cartoon from the edge of their seats,not discerning what the result will be.Somehow,monotonous repetition on the same theme just doesn't register with them
