laslo Says:

One thing you can say about Bethanie, she’s such a lady.

Skeezerweezer Says:

Obviously, Fed is not only GOAT of fans , but here, proven time and time again, pro players as well.

dari Says:

That’s really nice to hear his fellow players be amazed at his achievements! CONGRATULATIONS!

Also, a question- I saw roger kept putting the Barclays ribbons inside the trophy. Does he have to do that because he has sponsorship with another bank, credit Suisse?
Just wondering if anybody knows. Can’t think of another reason why he would do that.

scineram Says:

Yes, I loce Dr. Ivo.

grendel Says:

Ivo for President of the World!

Jose Acasuso, now there’s a name I haven’t encountered for couple of years or so. Moment I saw his name, up popped a vision of his funny face. He has that sort of face that even when he is not smiling, he looks as if he is, secretly, smiling at something.

jane Says:

Ivo, lol. Must look at his twitters from time to time.

Mike Says:


a man who should have knocked Federer out from 2nd round in 2009 roland garros in straight sets

Ben Pronin Says:

They counted Federer’s win twice (probably because it was so epic) so apparently their h2h is 10-17. Hah. Silly ATP.

RZ Says:

So where’s the updated Funk with Roger at the top of the list?

Nadal Says:

You’re the best Roger, proved it once again!
