…You even know that at the time, you weren’t winning the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas but the International Lawn Tennis Challenge.

…Besides, you call him « captain », not coach.

 

…You like fairs, bandanas and stupid songs "Popopopopopop pololo... OLEEEEE !"

 

…Tennis has to be played over the weekend. You’re busy during the week. Having a job and all.

 

…Your very own loser country is Argentina. Two lost finals, insane.

 

…You prefer bromance to romance. 

 

… You love going on tour with the lads. Bring on the stag parties.

 

…You’re proud to say that it’s one of the oldest competitions between countries. Copa America? Never heard of it.

…Your name is Mikhail Youzhny

 

…You take your Friday afternoon off, the Saturday you do everything in double, Sunday is made to pray, hands together around a racquet handle.
