Which monkey is devouring these tennis clowns?
Posted by tennisplanet on December 9, 2007
Federer: French Open? You think!!!! Tied to that is the calendar Grand Slam. He knows, all this domination and fanfare, falls a little short, without at least one calendar Grand Slam.
Mirka issue is starting to get prickly. If he has made up his mind against the union, he is running out of time, to continue to push it away. It has to be weighing heavily on his mind, as it has gained momentum and ‘weight’ with every year. It’s freaking what eight years?
Nadal: How to take the No. 2 monkey off his back? Being so close and so good without reaching the peak is painful. Knees are becoming his bigger obstacle than Federer, in getting there.
There is another: Clay court monkey. How to master other surfaces, without relinquishing the clay throne? It is difficult to be counted among the greats with just the clay court theatrics.
Djokovic: Is there any other way, other than the blatant goatee to mask the ever expanding chin? Master fitness to win against Federer, despite being on a string from one corner to another. Overcome ‘big stage’ nerves that showed up at the USO final. Get McEnroe on his side.
Roddick: One word – Federer. Or is it two – Room Service?
Nalbandian: Just ONE freaking Grand Slam, please. He is on his knees, with a bowl, ppplleease. Finals at Wimbledon and all those semifinals are just too much to swallow.
