Nadal humiliated in front of home fans by Gilles Fugging Simon.


Vamos RoboRafa!


Because this is the first ATP tournament he has played since reaching #1, Rafa is going to recieve some award/trophy for reaching the #1 spot. It will be presented to him next Sunday on the Centre Court by .... Mr Disney

Also he is playing doubles with Moya

Rafa is currently at 101 matches (singles and dubs) for the season

The draw is next Saturday at 6pm CET (allegedly)

Linda I saw this thread on the first page and I would have bet my arm you had created it.

Nice suit Rafa I think he just wants to make sure noone sees his ass this time

Rafa is playing doubles? I guess it's for the entertainment of the masses.



Hey, I'm sure everyone is jumping up and down now that the MIT competition is starting again.

BRB...

Re: (Bored waiting for someone else to open) The Madrid Thread :mad:

OK, I said BRB, but when you are 'borrowing' the neighbor's wireless internet, things don't always run smoothly...



Only 3 tournaments left in the season and it is crunch time for those in a position to win the coveted Metis Invitational Trophy.

GuiroNl and Xoman are in the lead but they are far from safe as Foxy and Tnn74 could surpass them in Madrid. I am sorry to say that contestants with fewer than 600 points don't have a realistic chance to win this (barring withdrawals, retirements or doping allegations) but please keep playing in order to improve your end of the season ranking.

The trophy will be presented to the winner(s) in a special ceremony (date TBD) where all will be invited and will receive souvenirs according to their ranking. As for those who will have participated consistently without winning any points at all, they will receive a commemorative coffee table book, illustrated with all the FAIL and PWNED photos that will have appeared throughout the competition.

Metis, I think you and I should be on the table. I am proud of my 0. I think it has contributed greatly to Rafa's success this year.

You're right. I edited the table. Even Agassi Fan who only posted once (and probably wasn't even participating) got one right.
