Favorite video game that doesn't involve a fuzzy ball and a racquet: 
Donkey Kong Country Trilogy, Mortal Kombat 2, Pes saga, Skyrim

After a tough loss, have you ever broken a controller, kicked the dog, awoke a neighbor: I called Chuck Norris to destroy the monitor with his roundhouse kicks.

Does your wife/girlfriend/significant other support your gaming habit: Yes she undestand my love for videogames and in recent years she plays too, but I destroy her without mercy when we play against (each other).

Describe your style of play: My style of play is defensive with a good serve. I fight in all the points without give any free point to my opponent. I like to play long matches to prove de mental strenght of my opponent.But on fast surfaces I like to end the rallies in 3-4 hits too.
