Quotable Quotes: Even Rod Laver bullshits.

On 2008-09:

“Roger went back to work,” says Rod Laver, the last man to accomplish the single-season Grand Slam, in 1969. “He developed a slice backhand to counter Nadal’s heavy-topspin backhand. One thing about Roger: He remembers. If someone does something once, it’s logged in his brain.”

– ESPN magazine.

There’s a reason why the Rockhampton Rocket doesn’t commentate. What and WHAT?

    In defense of the Rocket, I wonder if the ESPN editorial process eluded a few things. Every one hander including the Rocket himself knows a high bouncer is their kryptonite. A more subtle observation (“Roger worked on his footwork to his BH and will slice if it bounces high”) could easily have been turned into the above by the trolls at ESPN. This is the crowd that thinks ‘no one’ cares about Wimbly 2008.

      I have to visit a grief counselor every time anyone says Wimby 2008, you know the match where it was too dark for Hawkeye!
