Searching for … The Changeover? Existential questions, how to get Nadal’s “assets,” and Benoit Paire has a new website

Welcome to the fourth installment of your bi-weekly look into what people type in that pesky Google box and somehow arrive to our site. If you missed the first three episodes of this series, you can find them here.

As always, these are actual terms that people typed when searching on Google, Bing or Yahoo. Somehow, they were lead to our site. Let’s see what people have been up to in these past two weeks:

Existential Questions


Let’s see … Hawk-Eye … competitions on various surfaces, umpires that sit in silly chairs … rankings that actually mean something … anybody have more answers?


Yes they do! Just look at this:


I … have no clue. Play a lot of tennis?


You use Google to see what they look like … and then realize that they don’t look very much alike.


I don’t know … do you?


They do? I had no idea!


Yes he did, given that he lost all of two games. A nice nugget: both the first point of the match as well as match point were decided by backhand down the line winners by one Rafael Nadal Parera. Who knew.


Is that you, Victoria? Weird question, since you were both at Madison Square Garden the other day.

Speaking of Redfoo …


Lindsay, get off the laptop …


The answer is already in your question.


The Paireover? The Benoitover?


I did not write about this aspect of Buenos Aires at all!


A child? RoDger? Seeve? Is there a video of this?


The entire David Ferrer Experience


Is this really a bad thing?


Lindsay … we all know this is you:


Is this a thing?


A pretty great definition of what The Changeover is:


Awwww … and SCENE!

Juan José loves a well struck backhand down the line, statistics that tell a story, a nice lob winner, and competent returns of serve.

    I think the person asking about the child returning federer’s serve is a video on his youtube channel. When he went to South America he challenged a group of kids from a poor community to return his first serve and if one did they would get a tennis court. It really is a nice video and shows some really happy kids who just love tennis. Fed is an awesome dude. Anyway gosh the other posts are so funny. Except I’m not too sure if you want Rafa’s hair, it’s falling out!

    I refuse to believe googling “I unknowingly ignore my friends” leads you to this site. It’s not among the first 50 hits, and who looks beyond the first 5 pages (hell, the first page) of a google search result these days?

    Hawkeye is not unique to tennis. Cricket has been using it since 2001 I guess. And the Benoit Paire result was someone searching this site for Benoit Paire.

    I really enjoy your website, and this is kinda unimportant, but it really bugs me how you say “bi-weekly”. Bi-weekly means twice a week- it does NOT mean every 2 weeks…

    Oh wow! I actually looked it up and both of us are right! Okay, coolio. Now I can get back to really enjoying your website 😉
