    24 year age difference between them. Has there ever been a bigger gap in an athletic, non pub based sport?

    Has the grunting calmed down a bit now?

    Not watched it since Borg v McEnroe. They all seem devoid of personality apart from that Kiriakis (sp) bloke who has a personality of a complete tool. As for women's tennis, is it any good? The grunting is pathetic and spoils it as any kind of watchable event. At the end of the day, who gives a Fcuk who wins? It's meaningless. Or is there anything/someone worth watching it again for?
    Roll on the Tour de France!

    Just on the border of your waking mind.
    Yes, because taking the months of their births into account there is a 23 years, 9 months difference. When Bernard Hopkins fought Joe Smith Jr. in 2016 taking the months of their births into account, there was a 24 years, 8 months difference in their ages. Feel free to call me a sad old bastard.

    There is a few! Though the way they're protected by the team management these days regarding interviews etc can be a little tiresome. Still, it p1sses on two people batting a ball to each other! :)
