RG 2009: The Borg Curse Strikes Again-Unexpected loss in 4th Rd to Soderling!!!

Yes, it's that time of the year again!!!


Will Rafa win his 5th consecutive RG title, breaking Borg's record (stay at home Bjorn ), or will the resurgent GOAT () spoil the party again? We'll know in 3 weeks (or maybe earlier than that ).

In any case, big MIT points are awarded for this tournament, so make your predictions with care.

I won't wait for the draw If there is a tournament I'd pick a WIN at the beginning of the season it is this one.

Let's have Paris one more time, Rafa although those Frenchies are soooo ungrateful

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

WIN for me please...no need to see the draw for me as well...but it would be nice if nole and verdasco are BOTH on Fed's half...
