You don't? Well, that's a relief. That means now that you've said Ferrer is toast no matter seeding or ranking, you won't mention this again, nor any of the other statements to similar effect.

Btw, you should rememeber - the threat is often stronger than the execution. Imagine the effect if you actually allow someone to discuss Ferrer's prospects realistically without you entering the discussion.

No, it doesn't. I will repeat it when the discussion is about Ferrer's seeding or ranking, I just won't spam - which would imply posting that in threads that have nothing to do with the subject. If voicing my views on Ferrer in every thread where Ferrer is discussed is considered spamming, then we might as well infract/ban every prolific poster on this board, you'll hardly find any who hasn't repeated the same opinion a few times. We can start by banning a few Fedtards who keep 'spamming' that Federer is the GOAT, often in threads not even about Federer

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Internazionali BNL d’Italia Rome Draw

Nadal in Djokovic semi! should be VERY interesting. the result of Rome could have a big impact on Roland Garros, I doubt anyone will be going soft on this one

also, WOW, really bad break for Novak, Wawrinka, arguably the most in form player right now, in first few rounds?

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: Internazionali BNL d’Italia Rome Draw

Djokovic should not be too worried about Wawa. I doubt playing 3 weeks in a row will help Wawa perform to his best in Rome.

Fine, fine, in the future I'll treat your posts the same way I treat the other endless repetitioners. If you don't want to be a constructive poster that's your choice. I thought perhaps running for appeal mod would have softened your stance. Obviously not.

I don't know, sometimes you get that weird adrenaline when you're tired, if you know what I mean. plus early in week is not to taxing, Wawrinka (potentially) will have had a day off to hopefully rest up.

Stan could be very dangerous. just imagine if he won the title in Madrid, insane confidence level

Re: Internazionali BNL d’Italia Rome Draw

Djokovic has a tough draw once again. Must probably beat Wawrinka, Berdych and Rafa back to back to reach the final. It can potentially get even worse if Gulbis is placed on the top among qualifiers (assuming he qualifies). But I really think Djokovic will be tough to beat in this tournament. I guess he is pretty mad about his Madrid performance.

Roger has a nice draw. Haas is potentially tricky though, but on slow clay Roger should be better if he can find his game. Haas has also played a lot of tennis lately. Roger has not played well since Australia though. Actually his last really good tournament was Cincinnati, where he played great the whole tournament. I wish he could find that level back soon...

Wawrinka might beat Nole on clay. I would not be surprised.

His last great tournament was the AO and before that the WTF. The IW event was sabotaged by his back but he was playing well before the Wawrinka match there.

He's certainly unlikely too after playing to the finals two weeks in a row immediately ahead of this tournament. At some point fatigue will have to be a factor. And it's not as if he would be favourite even if fully rested.
