Bettyjane

Sampras?? : )

Mircea Bumbesti

A gnarly coach that everyone used to hate, but a funny person that garners more respect than Becker and McEnroe put together.

Stella

and the answer is ????????????????????

Tennis Planet

ALEX

You are not far. So you get another crack at it - with another hint:

Last letter of the first word is 'E' and first letter of the second word is 'F'.

Note to salivating freaking opportunistic vultures: You cannot win now. All you can do is help Alex. If he chooses your answer and wins, you DON'T win with him. Or if fails to choose your answer and that happens to be the right one, you STILL don't win.

Stella

Alex --- secure family

Stella

it doesn't matter if you win or lose it's how you play the game.

Or according to Snoopy -- it doesn't matter whether you win or lose - until you lose .

Or according to Rudyard Kipling and Wimbledon

“If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, and treat those two imposters just the same…”

Personally, I'm with Snoopy !!

Alpha

If that's the answer, TP is big time barking up the wrong tree. That one (Murray's) mom was worth 10 dads. Plus you'd think, by this theory, a single mom could never bring up a son to compete with a kid who comes from a two parent home.

So, I'm guessing it's some play on "scream primal"

Ricke

I agree with Alpha. I was going to say "supportive family", but then I thought of Judy and his brother, Jamie. They more than make up for his father's absence.

Stella

and Nadal's parents split

Bettyjane

Yeah I just assumed the divorce in the Nadal family would disqualify him as a "secure"family unit. Silly me.

alex

Man what can it be??

Surrogate Father??

Man my head hurts. Thinking toooooo much.

alex

TP you are freaking something else. But why do we like you, that beats me.
Answer please.

alex

What is the answer??

Tennis Planet



Stella

appreciate I didn't win -- Alex was closer first. Can he have half of a WOF.

But I think my "secure family " is the same as "stable family "

alex

Thank you my poetess !! Yeah this sounds more like it.

alex

Me too !!
I don't think Kipling really knows what he is talking about. Or it is just "he wishes that he can".
