Agreed that he needs to go fishing, see the family and friends, and go to the cinema -- Perhaps Iron Man .

Now for MIT, repeat after me:

I will not underestimate Rafa again.
I will not underestimate Rafa again.
I will not underestimate Rafa again.

I'll write this 100 more times

Metis, I'm going for the big, cry inducing, clay rolling, Borg matching

Re: Time to attain BORGian status on Clay- The Nadal RG Thread

No need to wait for the draw ... Please, Metis, put me down for the win. Besides from Thursday I shall be traveling not returning after Nadal has finished his first RG match. The crystal ball is clear on this prediction and I don't want to miss 200 MIT points :-)
Hopefully, Djoker will fall in Federer's side of the draw and he will help Nadal get closer to #1
