    huge is an overstatement. It's slightly larger than average.

    sadly tennis season is over for me- i'll have to wait to see Federer again in the French open finals

    i gotta agree wif dat, federer makes things look so easy, dat when he hit a ball his face dont change, whereas other players they either have the wide-eye look, or cringe, or look stressed. actually i hate watchin the women's replay for the same reason (yes im shallow too, but im not the only one here cough*sparky*cough)

    There's a thread in the ACTRESS forum called "Actresses who have changed your mind over time"

    To bring this to TENNIS, who are some players that you really liked/disliked previously but over the years have grown to like more/less?

    For me, the obvious one is RAFAEL NADAL. The first time i watched him play he was 17, definitely not as into showing off his muscle, a fighter, wore normal clothing etc. I liked him back then, but over the years, i've come to dislike him more and more... not sure why (maybe coz he beat Federer last year at French), but it's probably because the personality he exhibits has changed.

    Another player is ANDY RODDICK. I never liked him when he first jumped to no. 1, but he really earnt my respect in the 5 set match he played in the Australian Open, which he won, 21-19 in the fifth set- a very impressive scoreline.


    Another question: Which tennis NICKNAMES do you like and which ones do you dislike?

    For example, i'm not a big fan of "RAFA" as a nickname, or "GONZO".

    I also don't like "ROGER" even though it's not a nickname, just for information sake. BUT, i have to say that i'm not a huge fan of "FED EXPRESS", although it's not bad compared to the two i listed before.

    Now the nickname i like the best happens to be "A ROD" which i think is clever and catchy.

    1. Initially I disliked Andre Agassi since he is a middle-aged bald-man , but later on, his gentlemanly style in competions and the touched love between him and his wife, Steffi Graf, changed my mind. He became one of my most favorite tennis player. Unfortunately, he stopped playing tennis.
    2. Now my tennis idol is Marat Safin. He has such an impressive and formidable nick name: Safinator.

    ROFL do they really call him that? i haven't been paying much attention to him, but Safinator? LOL! That goes on my list of bad nicknames for sure. How can you not crack up just looking at it

    LOL,
    Safinator = Safin + Terminator.
    Safin will be back to his old self again, and will destroy all his opponents, including the Huge Nose Swiss Guy, to be deserved with the nickname Terminator.

    Safin is awesome. I also like Roddick too but he's been inconsistent lately

    i don't know what everyone's problem with Federer's nose is. It's not noticeably huge -.-

    Federer--> Pig? you gotta be kidding, i can't think of a less likely candidate.

    even safin is more like a pig than Federer.
