So just as with Roddick and some of the other current male players, it does become treadmill to watch after awhile...except of course, with Fabrice Santoro
I have to admit, I can't stand Fabrice Santoro's style of play (human backboard- anathema to a serve-and-volleyer's mindset), but those buns of his are a work of art!

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
