Well if you got Almagro-Berlocq the match would end the same day. It could turn into a four day affair they get Monfils and Simon playing in the final. It would be an epic pushfest of 61 shot rallies with players jostling linesmen to return serve 10 meters behind the baseline. And it would only last three sets with a score of 6-4, 6-2, 7-5.

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.
