General discussions about the 1st version of Tennis Elbow Manager

Postby manutoo » 02 Mar 2007, 18:04

Hello,

a question to the native English speakers around...

In French, when a player lost many time against another player around his rank, we say it's his black beast.
Example :
- Gaudio was the black beast of Ferrero till Ferrero beat him in Monte Carlo before to win Roland Garros
- Nalbandian was the black beast of Federer in 2003 (he very likely made him miss the year end 1st rank place, by beating him 4 times this year, including the US Open & Melbourne)

So my question is :
What is the good way to say "black beast" in English ?

We actually use the french expression - bete noir - sometimes. (eg Nalbandian is Fed's bete noir)
Alternatives would be to say that (the one who keeps winning) has got the other guy's number, or he is the other one's nemesis (Bandy has got Fed's number / Bandy is Fed's nemesis)

Thanks Rob4590 ! :)

Ok, I just finished the Beta 0.90 , so just 10% more to go to reach the full beta version !

Here what I did today :

It's one of the several rankings that will be shown at the end of the game, when your player retires...

The Beta should be there in 2 weeks or less, I hope.
I'll need quickly some good testing, as I should release the final version before April !
