Misleading titles again TF, you know Young won first match and not his first pro event. There is a major difference there in the wording.

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".

Congrats by the way for Donald.

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".

That was an error. You could have just called it as such.

I could have, but you have a history of creating some good titles to get people talking about tennis.

Btw, off topic thanks for the Mary-Jo Fernandez correction the other day.
