BoC, do you really think it's best to start the thread when Foxy was so instrumental in leading Rafa to three consecutive GS titles? I'm superstitious about this, so think he might take Rafa to all four.

Yes, I agree with you. WHERE is Foxy. Because if he's not going to be around, we have to have one.

Foxy was not successful at ensuring Rafito's win at the WTF. Clearly his luck has run out.

Our concern should be his week service and poor backhand.. not the thread opener

The only thing I can influence is the thread starter. I leave the rest to Toni. Toni leave to us the starting of the thread. Of course, he worries about it, but he knows that we will do the best we can.
