Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

I remember Federer being booed off court in Monte Carlo once.

However, to suggest that this crowd reaction had to do with a Rafa partisan crowd is forgetting the past in Madrid and in Spain. Rafa has been beaten in Spain without the crowd being hostile to his opponent.

Roger defeated Rafa in Madrid a couple of years ago without any hostility from the crowd.


Neil Harman is a joke as a tennis journalist these days.

Really? Arturs Irbe is in Helsinki with our team these days, he's coaching the goalkeepers, and this morning I read a short news bit that he had left the team because of some "family circumstances". I never imagined a car accident I hope she recovers soon.

The trouble with many of those journalists and twitter to me is:
1) too much arguing and insults on twitter so most journalists need a thick skin to be able to handle the mud being thrown at them
2) Most of those journalists are too convinced of their own viewpoint being The Truth that you can slam facts in their face and they will still ignore it and repeat their own viewpoints.

That was a weird match from Rogelina, I didn't see much, saw the end, Kei is so cute. And Rogelina looked fabulous.

I saw some of the second set, Kei made many mistakes. I was surprised to hear that he won in the end.

In other news, I had my first cold soup of the season I ate it and thought about our discussion last year

I didn't believe the announcer when he said Roger & Kei was the match to watch, that there could be an upset. I said, sure. Anyway, I don't think these lead up tourneys to Roland Garros mean that much to the top players. I'm just happy Rafa is getting plenty of match play.
