Whatever Happened To … Vince Spadea?

The Playa Spadea Aint Afraid-a-Ya!

Veteran Vince is tennis’ Renaissance man. Clothing designer, rapper, author (Break Point), TV presenter, Twitterer, you name it he keeps himself busy when he’s not on court. Aside from the losing streak, he’s a pretty good player. He’s the only player to win a love-set against Federer in a Grand Slam as well as one of the biggest rankings comebacks working his way from the 200s back to his high of 18. If Vince is a journeyman then he is the greatest of all time, beating the likes of Agassi, Safin, Sampras, Rafter, Kafelnikov, Krajicek and Enqvist in their prime. Hell yeah!
