Too late, Linda.

Ania used to be part of the optimistic lot until the MTF Nadal Fan collective got to her. Assimilate, resistence is futile.

It was the Loss That Shall Not Be Named that broke my resistance. I was reasonably optimistic until then.

I'm pretty sure Rafa's awful form is the reason for the wave of pessimism sweeping the Rafafandom.

I think he should handle Werner!

I'm here to join your army Hilde, I'm tired of all these pessimist Rafatards plaguing the forum, and I'm ready to fight dirty if need be

I have faith in my Rafito, he'll win IW for sure

Re: Rafa in IW - Come and play the guessing game!

Ania, fear not I've got a new recruit for you, she's a Djokotards but she's got the perfect mindset to become a Rafatards :

I wouldnt say it is that easy.

The Nadal Fan Collective before a draw:


The Nadal Fan Collective when the draw is known:


The Nadal Fan Collective when Rafa loses:

How did I do, Ania.
