    Does raise the question - would she have ever broken through into the top 20 if she hadn't been a drug cheat?

    He may be to a degree but he has achieved more in tennis than what you will ever achieve in chess - he has defeated world champs. And he does not play for two pence prize money. Without him tennis in OZ would almost be dead. And with our other favourite "our Lleyton ".

    On the net there now shows a vertical white tape which divides the court into left and right sides. Has it always being there?

    As I stated only yesterday in another thread I make allowances for brilliant chess players. That's tennis over until next grand slam.

    The Maria Sharapova Concern: Hold or fold her tennis career
    JANUARY 23, 2020

    ... But Sharapova is creating the reputation of having her third straight loss at opening rounds of a major and unable to go the distance anymore at any tournament. Four years ago she was suspended from play for a positive drug test and her tennis world had came to a screeching halt. ...

    Shoulder injuries and a few other ailments abound and now she's ranked No. 145. At the end of this Melbourne Slam she will be in the 300s. The Australian Open last year saw Sharapova through to the fourth round and last season she's barely went past the second of any tournament entered. ...
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    The guy is exhausted and sore and you want to pick on him?? He was okay - he lets his racquet does his talking. He is a star you are a nobody get over it. You have adopted the OZ tall poppy syndrome on Oz day, good effort.

    Compare with Federer Interviews ...or even Novak or Rafa interviews (Rafa is speaking English as 2nd/3d language) ...the differences are obvious. This is why I wonder if English is his first language.

    Good point, I think his first language is Oz French. Come on Michael open your wallet and all your fantasy questions can be answered at one sitting around Peking Duck.
