Uncle Toni vs. Simon Reed

Will Rafa win Roland Garros?

Here's my bet....

If Rafa wins: he becomes my avatar, and my sig will say "Rafael Nadal - the true GOAT. So good that not even Simon Reed can beat him"

If he loses: Reed becomes my avatar, and my sig will say "Simon Reed - the true GOAT. So good, he can even knock Nadal off at RG"

So, will it be the Spanish Mafia or a jinxing Pommy commentator?

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Hope someone is there to take pics

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Uncle Toni vs. Simon Reed

I don't think Reed applies in this case. I mean you can't make predictions/jinx if it's fixed

Re: Uncle Toni vs. Simon Reed

I don't care how good he is, there is no way in hell he's going to win this. Even if he manages to beat Raonic+Isner/Ferrer+Murray +Fed/DelPo - which is already doubtful - after them, he's going to be too exhausted for a win over Nole.

So, I voted No.

Federer, Raonic, Tsonga, Monfils, DelPo ...

He won't have to beat them, they are in Novaks half.
