It's not unusual for players to bring little notes on court to remind them of various technical things their coach may have wanted to drum into their heads, although I don't remember ever seeing...

Yes, more often that not, that's true, but he does actually have a very effective attacking game, which I would like to see more of. It's just less fun to watch this sort of Hewitt tactic, but...

Come on, you didn't seriously fall for Elway's feeble attempt, did you? First he lied about what I said on the Federer v Canas match, then he lied about my general view on Federer, and then he got...

I watched the first episode. Excellent acting, as you would expect, quality production, ok story, but not terribly interesting. Didn't really grab me. I'll watch a few more and see how it goes.

You're asking a lot there. She's probably watching in some squashed mode to fill the screen, thinking that makes it actual widescreen. The ignorance isn't limited to tennis around here. ;)

It is anamorphic widescreen, but they have black borders on the sides, so you get the 4:3 image in the middle of the screen. The BBC sometimes do this as well, and like I said, they have broadcast...

I never said he tanked it, quite the opposite. I said he fought as hard as he could, but he was clearly out of steam.
