Re: The Asado Thread: Chat (and Chew) Here

You know the worst thing I was accused of making up facts.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It's all a joke. I read the PM that said me with that link to the thread about when trainers should be called. I couldn't believe what I reading.

Bring on Bastad and the summer clay court season (although I hate the fact that they'll be 28 man draws).

Next time it gets bought up, could you please confirm and shut the clowns up, as you would have better access to medical journals than myself.

The summer clay events have been pissed on big time and 28 draws are just a joke, but de Villiers is a big joke. Tomorrow actually I will be doing 2 blog entries, because Wimbledon has been of interest and also the ATP thing as well.

I feel sorry for the tournament organisers, as their events have been treated as inconviences on the calendar which is hugely unfair.
Mark Miles got a lot of criticism, but he is nowhere near as incompetent as this Disney clown.
Yes I've enjoyed Wimbledon a lot during the first week too (aside from the contributions of most of the pundits and commentators over here).
Roddick and Sharapova both losing early was brilliant.
I look forward to the blog updates.

The video in your signature is awesome. Genius commentary there.

Miles was a tool for sure, but he was there to establish the tour, he did that, but didn't do much else, especially after the collapse of ISL marketing deal.

Greatest piece of commentary of all time, and every Norwegian child must know this.

I have completely not noticed that there have been posts here.

Congrats for doing really well in the practical exam. A book token is so not appropriate for such a high achievement!

I've also really enjoyed this Wimbledon, there have been a lot of enjoyable matches and loving the fact that there are no rain delays. The upsets have been good too, Djokovic and Roddick losing. It was about time Djokovic lost early in a big tournament and Roddick losing when he had a favourable draw is good too.

I got a look at about 15 matches on Monday and 14 on Thursday (only a few of them in full). It's a pity about Nalbandian's terrible peformance on Monday, but despite that I've still enjoyed Wimbledon so far.
I had an outer court groundpass on both days, but on Monday I hung outside Court 1 after the Hewitt-Haase match had finished. Plenty of people had seen enough tennis for the day and were going home early, and I persuaded this woman to give me her Court 1 ticket for free rather than slipping it in the red resale box. This enabled to watch Nalbandian-Dancevic live from start to finish. I really didn't want to miss out on watching a match involving my 2 favourite players, and it was my first experience inside a Wimbledon showcourt.

Also 3 days ago I got the results for the my 2nd year exams at university, and I passed. I even got the highest mark in the year in my practical exam and got a prize (which turned out to be a book token but still ).

A ground pass ticket during the first week is great. So many matches and so many players to see; however not enough time to see them all. Great value for money even if the prices have gone up from last year. Enjoy Toronto and the tennis.

Re: The Asado Thread: Chat (and Chew) Here

Hi everyone !

I hope you are all OK
Here are the news for me : after waiting 3 month I got the result for the engineering school I want and I had to take an interview which was yesterday ! 15 people out of the 40 selected to pass the interview will join the school so it's tough ! Anyway being among the 40 people selected is a great achievement for me even if I want more

Stress is raising lol

VAMOS DAVID AND COME ON ANDRE AND ALLEZ JO !!

Re: The Asado Thread: Chat (and Chew) Here

Hi ! Yeah I got the results this Monday and I'm admitted !!!
So it's a 5-year degree course in the engineering school of Lyon specialized in Telecommunications. I'm really happy because now I have no pressure for the rest of my studies expect to work

Maybe I will go to the tournament which take place in Lyon this year

Congrats, Viken.

Suppose you're prepared to pursue such inspirational and demanding studies in engineering. Definitely not a 5-year vacation.

Thank you Getta ! But don't worry I've already done the first 2 years in another school so it's only 3 years to go ! Anyway it's great to know I will make the studies I wished to do, it's like a dream which come true - maybe overdoing it a bit about the dream part but I think you got it lol -

Re: The Asado Thread: Chat (and Chew) Here

Great work Viken.

LeChuck, if you are bored and want to read some comedy. Go to the Court Surface Speed theory. These bean counters not having a clue at all. Monte Carlo slower than Hamburg.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
