Alpha

Applaud a great shot by the opponent.

Clifford

How about....neither one stares down their opponent after winning a big game. Their focus is all on themselves.

Veglia

They don't but there's a bunch of other players who also don't.

Veglia

They don't "blame" the equipment

Stella

they don't shake their fists in the direction of the opponent

O

Double fault on match point.

BJ

They don't tighten their shoelace while playing

Stella

change their racquets at the exact time of the ball change

Jonathan

Apologise for points won when net cord was involved...

Rafakenya

They never choose to serve first?

Murph

Wears same shirt throughout match.

Murph

Sentence should start with "Never"

DSG

WHAT??

Dude

Smile

Claire

Look up to their team in the player's box.

Tennis Planet

WINNER: ALPHA.

Leon

"what (almost) every other player does during nearly every match"...
Oh, really? I wish I could see the corresponding stats, otherwise it seems a gross exaggeration.
Congrats to Alpha - first of all, for perfect reading your thoughts.

Stella

sorry but they do applaud other player shots. They often hit the racquet with their other hand to do this . Rafa applauds opponent winners a lot. I hate to disagree with the boss but I believe you are wrong on this TP.

BTW I'm beginning to think, from the style of writing and the opinions that TP and Alpha ( Alpha male on the site after all ) are one and the same person

I republish the post regularly so it shows up 'today' and doesn't get buried.

Last time it got 'refreshed' was yesterday (June 20th @ 6:41 pm).

STELLA

You may be right about them applauding but the occurrence is so VERY rare it seems compared to other high profile players like Djokovic etc. that it borders on 'never'. More so when you factor in their unique stature warranting far more graciousness.

"Federer and Nadal NEVER (very rarely?) do what (almost) every other player does during nearly every match.

Stella

maybe it is rare but perhaps , since they are so good, it is rare for their opponents to hit something worth applauding !!! Perhaps the proportion of applause to great shots is the same as when lesser players play each other

Stella

OK.

Manal


Hmm yea Fed almost never does that. Rafa busy wondering over at toni
