We're all scattered all over the place in terms of how we feel about Robin and other players.
Most of us are pretty tough on Robin too, although it is tough love.
Just wanted to let you know that I don't think that Robin's loss at Chennai is in any way a 'big deal'.
It hurt big time though.
I know logically we all were demanding that he get rest and that an ATP 250 is a dime a dozen when looking at the season points as a whole. So it will be really insignificant in hindsight. But since he was the #1 seed and this was his first real tourney, it felt awful at the time.
Dana said she was "shocked". I think that was proper feeling I had after the loss.
The AO, that's where it counts, not at the Mickey Mouses before. So, stay positive, all of you!
Blu came in yesterday and gave me the lift I needed to not feel so upset. It also dawned on me how the circumstances of his crowded schedule and all the promotional work he had to do for this tourney as the "poster boy" for it is a formula that is going to exhaust him and bring out his worst tennis.
Tim, where are you? I miss you!
I've been in Nole chat quite a bit and saw you posting once there about finding your missing cat. But I haven't seen you much online, not even in the Prog Rock thread, although I'm looking now and see that you have updated it.
I have nothing meaningful to add to the current discussion. I don't know Porcupine Tree that well yet. But I'm pretty easy to find in here.
Heads up! I'm requesting my nick be changed to one that is less controversial. I will appear as "Nolby" if it is approved reflecting Nole and Nalby.
