The power of five - was Fed destined to lose?

Ok, I was a little bored...

Standard disclaimer (this is MTF after all) - THIS IS A JOKE!.... or not

All are divisible by 5:

1) Played on the 20th of the month
2) It was Fed's 85th match of the year
3) He would have crossed Muster's 35th win
4) This would have been his 25th straight win in finals.
5) This was the last match of the year 2005
6) It was Fed's 15th ATP tournament of the year (excluding Kooyong and Davis Cup)

Need ideas for a new signature...

You have way too much time on your hands.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

You know, if you're interested, I have a Stats assignment sitting here with your name all over it. Influential points? You know you want to.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

This could be a Stats assignment only under the title "Data Snooping". Influential points do not cut it.

Tell that to my upper year Stats prof. I'd be more than happy for this crap to not have to count.

I lack direction.

Yeah, it counts I have to scan various plots and some charts of blah that we calculated in order to determine if a point is influential. You clearly know what I'm talking about, or you would not feel my pain.

Could you use your deep insight to predict the winner of the Australian Open. You know a supernatural force has already decided.

Well, a newspaper stated that David won because of the N°8 So you shouldn't be ashamed of it
Apparently they say that in China, the N°8 is the lucky one: David was seeded 8, he travelled to Shanghai on the 8th, and blah, blah, blah
