Re: WWW SF Rotterdam: Berdych (2) vs Del Potro (3)

I do happen to like Roger's forehand (see my sig) and I agree with some of your points but overall, I'd still take the DelPo forehand or the Berdych forehand over his. Is it a matter of personal preference? Perhaps. Federer has a great rally shot and he can do some crazy angles with his forehand. But DelPo and Berdych can kill a point with their forehands much more effectively.

Put it this way; these guys can hit 145 km winners off their forehands all day long whereas few other players can do that. Sitting on top of the baseline, you see some of their shots and think "How did they do that?" With Federer it's more of how he constructs the point rather than the physical execution of the shot itself, if it makes any sense.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.
