Fedsampras_thanksgiving

By Jackie, TW Social Director

(I know I had a Federer picture up last week, as well, but this one was too perfect to pass up!)

Happy Thanksgiving, TWibe! Before I get into the meat and potatoes - or turkey and potatoes? - of this post, I thought I'd go off-topic for just a moment (appropriate considering this is our OT space!).

First, I was pleasantly surprised to see some tennis coverage in a couple of mainstream publications this past week. The latest issue of ESPN Magazine features a breathtaking aerial photo of Ana Ivanovic and Elena Dementieva playing their exhibition in Doha, to kick off the year-end championships. People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" issue also showcases some tennis hotties of its own - Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Rifling through the issue, I wondered how only Fed and Rafa made it to their pages. Have they seen Feli?

Next, as promised, I present to you my year-end award recipients! You won't see anything that wasn't already expressed in last week's comments, but hopefully this is still of some interest to you:

Most Valuable Player
ATP: Rafael Nadal.
WTA: Serena Williams ... but Jelena Jankovic put up a good fight.
Most Improved Player
ATP: Andy Murray.
WTA: Oddly enough, I feel compelled to go with Elena Dementieva.
Breakout Player
ATP: Juan Martin del Potro.
WTA: I'd put Dinara Safina here, though she's just as worthy of being Most Improved.
Most Disappointing Player
ATP: Richard Gasquet.
WTA: Svetlana Kuznetsova.
Best Rivalry
ATP: This one's tough, but I'm going with Nadal vs. Djokovic because they had some real knockdown-dragout battles this season.
WTA: Jankovic vs. the rest of the WTA. Seems no one is happy she's #1!
Match of the Year, Best of 5 (excluding Wimbledon final)
Federer vs. Tipsarevic at the Australian Open, just because I nearly lost consciousness during that match.
Match of the Year, Best of 3
ATP: Nadal-Djokovic, Hamburg semifinal.
WTA: Serena-Venus, U.S. Open quarterfinal.

Who's excited for 2009?

Finally, as always, please check out our TennisWorld > Real World Facebook group and consider joining if you aren't already a member.

At this moment, I'll bet that the majority of you are either eating or recovering from your Thanksgiving feast. As Pete noted in his "Giving Thanks" post, Thanksgiving is synonymous with food, perhaps more so than any other holiday. They don't call it "Turkey Day" for nothin'! Yet, for vegetarians like myself, the day has nothing to do with turkey.

While I enjoyed the Thanksgiving sides more so than the turkey itself in my meat-eating days, I never thought to take the turkey out of the equation altogether. Yet that's exactly what came to pass the day my family and I took up vegetarianism. Our Thanksgiving meals are still lavish and delicious - we'll have stuffing, mashed potatoes, assorted vegetables, rice, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and more - but it does seem like an affront to the Thanksgiving Gods to not have that bird on the table as its centerpiece.

Yes, I've tried the meatless wonder that is tofurky and found it to be a poor substitute for the real thing - and pretty disgusting to boot. (To be fair, the one time I tried it was several years ago, so I imagine it's improved over time.)

Still, Thanksgiving isn't only about turkeys, pies, and elastic waistbands. It's a time to celebrate family ... and, of course, to give thanks. While I'm on the subject, I'd like to thank you, dear TWibe, for welcoming me as Social Director and for bringing these Deuce Club posts to life. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

(Okay, I can't lie. This year, I'm not doing a big Thanksgiving dinner. Heck, I'm not even with my family. They're out of town, so I'm spending the day with a co-worker and her parents ... and our Thanksgiving meal is taking place at an Italian restaurant. Not a traditional celebration by any means, but it'll do.)

Now it's time for you to share! What does your Thanksgiving meal look like, and what's your favorite dish out of the spread? Do you have any special recipes you're willing to give out?

We can also use this space to discuss today's football action. As I speak, the Seahawks and Cowboys are going at it, and later tonight the Cardinals and Eagles will be in action. Who are your picks?

Before I sign off, I wanted to mention that I plan on reprising the Annual TW Awards, where we give out awards to members of the TWibe. I can't do this alone, so please take some time to think of your honors, and send me an e-mail with your thoughts. Remember, they can be whatever you want them to be - the more creative, the better. (Some examples from last year include the Man, This Is So Creative and Funny I Just Wish I Knew What It Meant award and the It Really Blows Being a KAD for Someone Whom So Many People Dislike award.) I'll be compiling the awards over the next few weeks, so make sure you get your ideas in!

I didn't, Master Ace. Shall I? Was it highly uncomplimentary?

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 07:29 AM

Gauloises,
The comments were interesting to say the least.

WTA 10 list made it to tennisforum.com

http://tinyurl.com/5zy5ge

Posted by Bismarck 11/28/2008 at 07:31 AM

the pic they chose for granollers is a bit ... weird.

i hate querrey. and nishikori too i think.

i´ve never seen stakhovsky play (or any vid of him period) so no feelings yet.
granollers tennis is ugly but i don´t hate him.
hanescu, montanes kunitsyn and petzschner ... i´m indifferent here.
which is not a compliment i guess. would i notice if they retired tomorrow? okay, yes, i would, cause i´m tennis crazy, but that´s not the point...
i like delpo and jwt, though delpo more than jwt.
and marin is just ... on a whole different level, jejeje.
he has the power to bring sadness into my soul if he sucks next year.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 07:38 AM

Master Ace, that's some quality analysis and high-level discourse they have going on at tennisforum.com, no? That thread was fairly painful to read. Stick to TW, that's the lesson I took from that.

Bismarck:

No, 2009 is going to be the year of Marin! (Also: Ernie, Elf and Mandy.)

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 07:40 AM

OK, I'm out of lemon and ginger tea. Lunchtime for me. Back in a while.

Try to keep the tumbleweed ticking over in my absence, Bismarck.

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 07:41 AM

Gauloises,
I had a few laughs especially the part where it said I do not watch many matches.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 07:43 AM

Little do they know you ARE the matches, Master Ace. It's basic tennis quantum physics. Like the tree falling in the woods, no tennis ball that is struck anywhere makes a sound or wins a point unless Master Ace is there to observe it.

OK, really going to lunch now.

Posted by Bismarck 11/28/2008 at 07:47 AM

that comforts me a bit, gauloises.
your *nole = god of the YEC* prediction turned out to be true so i hope your powers are still intact in that regard.
2009 = year of the marin!

i´ll have some lunch now myself...

... but before i go: hi, Master Ace!

*gone now*

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 07:55 AM

Gauloises and Bismarck,
Enjoy your lunch.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:16 AM

Hello, if anyone is about.

*provides tea and biscuits as inducement*

For some reason I thought reading The Remains of the Day was a good idea this morning.

How did everybody's Thanksgivings go?

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:21 AM

Master Ace, you must ignore people who make stupid comments on other forums.

TW loves you!

*through a mouthful of sandwich*

GIVE THAT BACK!

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:24 AM

It's raining AND there are no people.

I want people!

*adds chocolate cake to the tea table*

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 08:25 AM

Jewell,
Thought some of those comments were hilarious. Just saw NP link of Chennai and Rafael/Carlos was battling. Speaking of Thanksgiving, I had a peaceful one watching American football blowouts and eating a decent meal.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:25 AM

*loves gauloises*
*hands back crown*

I just borrowed it for a second. Honest.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:27 AM

Master Ace - good. :) What'd you eat?

I'm not really expecting an answer. :)

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 08:28 AM

Jewell,
Guess some people are still sleeping after Thanksgiving. Speaking of the Aussie crowd, guess Aussiemarg is getting ready for her trip as she will be internetless for about 4-5 days.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 08:28 AM

Mmmm, hunger and hangover cured.

But all is not well in my world. Sainsbury's had no lemon and ginger tea so I've been forced to buy some sort of blackcurrant and ginseng crap. Boo.

jewell - why was reading Remains not a good idea?

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 08:30 AM

Jewell,
Did not eat turkey but ate the other traditional Thanksgiving food with family.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:34 AM

Master, Ace, an answer - thanks! :)

*faints*
*recovers*

gauloises - because I am halfway through and Stevens just organised the whole peace conference while his father was dying and now I'm sad. And I just know the whole thing is going to be unbearably sad. Unbearably being a sign of how good it is.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:37 AM

Ack - internetless for four to five days? - I will miss her comments.

*shivers*

Although Aussiemarg does have a strange idea that I will spike her tea...I can't imagine why.


Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 08:38 AM

jewell - it is indeed magnificently, heartbreakingly, gutwrenchingly sad.

Have you not seen the film? You MUST. Hopkins and Thompson on absolutely cracking form.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:41 AM

I haven't seen the film, gauloises. It's on my list though.

I meant to ask you, have you read any of Alan Garner's stuff?

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 08:43 AM

I'm sure I did, but none of it sticks in the mind except a weird impression of ... being quite disturbed. I think I might have found it quite scary as a child, unless I'm thinking of somebody else?

I'm halfway through The Book of Lost Things at the moment and while I was initially keen, I'm not loving it so much now.

Also, this blackcurrant tea smells like crumble and tastes like nothing.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:43 AM

Bissy, when you come back:

Hi people!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!.... I'm feeling CRAZY!!!! Surprise, surprise.

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:46 AM

Disturbing is right. The Owl Service is my favourite.

The Book of Lost Things? - ha, one I don't know!

Master Ace, you have probably answered this already, but have you compared this year's Wimbledon final with the 1980 one? Which one would you say was best?

Posted by jewell 11/28/2008 at 08:46 AM

Hey Maha.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 08:48 AM

Stupid computer swapping. Now I feel better. Although perhaps I should say 'please'?

*fights gauloises for crown*

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 08:49 AM

Quite recent and by John Connolly. It's about a boy who gets sucked into a fairytale. Sort of. Basically, it's Pan's Labyrinth, but with a boy and set in WWII London. And hopefully it's got a less disappointing ending.

Maha! One of TW's own cubs shows up right on cue.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 08:49 AM

In a pacifistic way, of course.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 08:51 AM

Thanks, gauloises.

I am so having fun making up award categories.

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 08:51 AM

Heyya jewell!

Hi gauloises!

And hello, Master Ace!

Since you three seem to be the only ones here...

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 08:52 AM

jewell, you don't get the Tumbleweed Queen crown until you've posted five times with AT LEAST two minutes between posts and nobody else has replied.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 08:53 AM

jewell - Knew there was something I meant to do.

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 08:53 AM

Jewell,
No, I have not compared Bjorn/John to Roger/Rafael. Good question on which one was better 'cuz it is tough for me to answer.

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 08:54 AM

Hello, Maha.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 08:54 AM

I will plan my campaign for tomorrow then...

...but maybe I'll content myself with all the precious stones.

*laughs stupidly at self*

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 08:56 AM

*eagerly anticipating Master Ace's answer*

Why do I do this to myself?

Posted by Nic 11/28/2008 at 08:57 AM

Hi :)

So what are some of the categories so far?

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 08:58 AM

Hum, so far I've come up with one poster award. ONE!

I blame the tea.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:00 AM

It's not the tea, it's the bromide.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:00 AM

Hey Nic!

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:02 AM

Yeah, I guess I shouldn't have bought 'blackcurrant, ginseng & sedative'.

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 09:02 AM

gauloises... "cub"???? What's that supposed to mean!?!?! >:P

I'm not happy! My Roger Federer poster hasn't arrived in the post yet!!!! They said it usually takes 24 hours. It's been.... 39 HOURS!!!!!!! AAAAARGH.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:03 AM

I was referring to jewell's link upthread to the lion cubs, maha.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:04 AM

gauloises - why 20 years?

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 09:05 AM

HEYYY!!!! When ARE the poster awards being given out!? Can I have the privilege of being the announcer for one of the awards? Like Academy Awards and those other fancy award ceremonies where people come dressed in fluffy clothes and read out the names of the winners with much suspense????????

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:06 AM

jewell - it's from the Leonard Cohen song "First We Take Manhattan".

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 09:06 AM

OOOOH ok, gauloises :D I was just kidding around anyway.
Oh no. NOW you've made me start wanting a LION CUB. I WANT A PET LION CUB. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:07 AM

I really, really want to see the Academy Awards where all the people are in fluffy clothes...dressed up as kittens and puppies and little bear cubs...They should definitely do that instead of all those boring glam dresses.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:08 AM

Maha, was that GRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrr you, or the lion cub?

I want a donkey foal.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:08 AM

RIGHT. I have an important question for the small panel empanelled here:

If you had to name the manliest man on the ATP tour, who would it be? Not the most talented, not the hottest, not the one who looks like he would be best in bed. Just the stone-cold testosterone-fuelled MANLIEST MAN.

Who would it be?

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:08 AM

Thanks, gauloises. Do you say, gorloyses, or can I say it the French way?

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:09 AM

Rafa.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:10 AM

jewell - you can say it however you like, it'll still sound like sweet music to me.

I sort of pronounce it "gool-wha-ses". But I don't really know how it's supposed to be said.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:11 AM

OK, jewell, then who's the second manliest?

And I'm assuming by the time I will have posted this, Maha will have said "Roger". So I would like her second choice too please.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:11 AM

Good-oh.

Don't think you're getting away with it - who is your MANLIEST MAN on the tour?

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:12 AM

gauloises - there are other players on the tour?

Posted by Nic 11/28/2008 at 09:12 AM

Deep breaths Maha, it will come :)
About a year ago, my Mum went to this charity ball thing. So anyway, she tells me "They had this lovely framed and autographed Fed memorabilia for auction." Ear prick up. "Yes, I thought you'd be interested." Breathing becomes shallow. "And I thought I should buy it for you." Begin to bounce in seat. "But then I thought, that's really more of a boy thing, isn't it?" Slaps palm to forehead.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:13 AM

*thinks seriously*

What makes a man, though?

*thinks less seriously*

Er...

Andy Roddick.

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 09:13 AM

LOL gauloises, I pick... oh dear, this manliest man thing is difficult.

Jewell, what I meant by fluffy was... umm.... all fancy and all! But we should have a special awards ceremony where everyone wears proper FLUFFY clothes!!! LOL.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:14 AM

I don't know. That's what I'm trying to figure out.

I thought maybe Moya. Anybody who looks that much like Kurt Russell must be pretty manly.

Oh, Nic, that's terrible!

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:14 AM

Oh, Nic! Mothers!

*shakes head in sympathy*

Posted by Master Ace 11/28/2008 at 09:15 AM

Maha,
I would not expect that Roger Federer poster until Monday at the earliest.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:15 AM

Master Ace will know.

Seriously, though, I pick Rafa.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:17 AM

jewell ... I'm shaking my head in despair at you right now. Roddick?!

Master Ace, who do you think is the manliest man on the ATP tour?

Nic, you too.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:18 AM

gauloises - I have weird ideas of gender, I am probably not a good judge. :)

Also, I just scored nothing out of 7 on the BBC's quiz of the week's news.

*feels stupid*

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 09:19 AM

"And I'm assuming by the time I will have posted this, Maha will have said "Roger". So I would like her second choice too please."

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAA gauloises, you do know me well, don't you!!!! Too bad I beat ya this time.... I DIDN'T say Roger by the time you posted that! Although yes, he IS my "Manliest Man". Like I said, this is hard... I don't HAVE a second choice! Too difficult to pick!

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:20 AM

So do I, jewell. That's why I need second, third, fourth opinions etc.

Most of the players I think of as quite manly I tend not to like. Kiefer's manly. *shudder*

Posted by lulu B 11/28/2008 at 09:20 AM

"Just the stone-cold testosterone-fuelled MANLIEST MAN"

Honestly, manly man and tennis is not something I would often associate. But if I had to choose, either Canas or Starace. For sure Canas, mmmm

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:21 AM

Do you want justification for choices, gauloises?

Kiefer isn't manly. He's sort of spaniel-like.

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 09:22 AM

True, Master Ace. :( Must wait and count the long, agonising days...

LOL Nic!!!!! My mum knows I'm obsessed with him! Luckily she finds him awfully attractive too, so she buys me anything Roger-y she sees! Which isn't a lot, but... I get by :D

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:22 AM

Starace! Brilliant :)

Not from what I've heard, jewell.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:22 AM

Spill the beans, gauloises!

I knew there was some history to account for that dislike...

Posted by Maha - Freak of the 90s (Long Live The Mighty Federer) 11/28/2008 at 09:23 AM

You guys are cracking me up.

OK gtg for afternoon school! Quadruple Chemistry! NOT fun!!!!! BYEEEEEE. C'ya in a couple of hours!!!!!

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:23 AM

Starace is a good choice - he has a Manly Dirk Pitt-like Jaw.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:24 AM

Bye Maha.

I'm thinking Exploits of the Chalet Girls...

Posted by Nic 11/28/2008 at 09:25 AM

Hm, first thoughts went to Moya, then Roddick made sense, and I considered Haas but for fun I'm throwing in Nalby. Wait. Gosh I don't know. There's something about Youzhny that reminds me of Viktor Krum and makes me wanna grunt "Ug" caveman style. In a good 'beating of sticks and marching into the grand hall impressively' way. So I'll go with that for now.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:27 AM

Moya is a good choice too.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:28 AM

Why has nobody said Marat yet?

Posted by lulu B 11/28/2008 at 09:29 AM

Moya is not a bad choice, real manly but a real man does not cheat on Flavia Pennetta, sorry! :)

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:29 AM

Nic - Youzhny is so Krum. Good catch!

jewell - I have no evidence or experience of this whatsoever, but I'd always heard that Kiefer was supposedly the best endowed man on tour.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:30 AM

lulu B - good point.

*throws Moya back onto the heap*

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:32 AM

gauloises - so perhaps we should call him Cerne Abbas Giant from now on?

How do you get to hear these things?!

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:33 AM

Yeah, Marat.

Although I think Gilles "a man stands up" Simon should get an honourable mention at least.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 11/28/2008 at 09:36 AM

How about Murray? He swears.

Posted by gauloises (sentenced to 20 years of boredom for trying to change the system from within) 11/28/2008 at 09:36 AM

jewell - I don't know, I've heard mention of it a couple of times on blogs or something ...

... how DO I hear these things?!

Posted by Bismarck 11/28/2008 at 09:37 AM

nice lions, Jewell.

watching this catfighting over the diadem of tumbleweed has made me think: what does the queen of tumbleweed wear on her head?

The last one, definitely. I'm wearing that right now.

Bissy, you darling! - do you mind me shortening Bismarck?

I want them all!

But if I had to choose...the turban and scarf type one.

That was my choice, jewell.

And I don't know how they know. Maybe none of it is true. Google 'nicholas kiefer well endowed' and see what comes up, if you really want to know.

You google it, gauloises...

I got into enough trouble last night googling 'shower scene'.

I can't help it...cute animals and pretty sparkly things just do that to me. :)
