Well "spanked" isn't exactly right, because he did win the first set.
I think Rainer is burnt down to a crisp, and I don't think carpet suits him. But, I have a soft spot for Pavel because he essentially gave up his chances in the FO to be with his wife and baby, but yet he sacrificed himself to get back to Paris to fulfill his obligations there. I thought that was wonderful. So, I can't ever wish anything bad for him.
