Nice one Dani!

Habib: That's why I have a love-hate thing with Soderling. I like him coz he's Swedish, but his attitude stinks sometimes.

But today I fully like him, no one can deny this great achievement.

affirmative, same with me, I admire what he did today, he has secured his place in history as the one who stopped Nadal the clay GOAT from winning his 5th RG, but wait a minute, doesn't this loss also affect Nadal's status as the clay GOAT? Borg still has the lead for now!

Re: •°o*Everyday is a Journey for the Warrior, and the Journey is Home/ the Castle, v

Hi there, Castle!

New thread so I see.


Well eh. What a day it was. I just watched a summary pf the Toad-Rafke match on Belgian TV... euh yeah, what is there to say?
Raf was sub-par, but moreover - Söderling played the match of his life, not unlike Kohlschreiber yesterday. All credits to him, for his attacking game, and most of all - for keeping his cool. That fellow was ICE COLD indeed!

It must be a bitter disappointment for Rafa, but as he said himself - every player is bound to lose at a certain point. If anything, I hope for him to bounce back soon, and IF he is suffering some physical discomfort, I hope he now gets enough time to let it heal and come back for the grass season in full strength.
I also hope that some of those ridiculous trolls in GM have now experienced how it's like to be forced to eat a bit of Humble Pie.
Rafa is, after all, just a human being, like all players - not a 'superman' or whatever... he'll be back anyways.

I haven't looked at GM, and I guess I won't until tomorrow at least. I guess the place is HORRID once again, with the haters celebrating all around because of a certain player's loss. Don't wanna see anything of that.

I guess many people will now conclude that it's now Roger's big chance to take the title, here. Let me just say that I don't know if Rafa's loss actually improves his chances. The pressure set on him right now much be HUGE, much more than if Rafa were still in the tournament. And he's not there yet either... plenty of players have been playing very well at RG so far, and I have still yet to see Roger make the final. So in all, I hope the Roger-fans (or Rafa-haters ) will not get overenthusiastic as of yet. It's still a very long way to go...

Damn, I wanted a Fedal final here. Nope, not happening. Strange idea, to know that it's Rafke spoiling the party this time, especially on clay...

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

It'll be good if it was two different players, but a Fedal final would be entertaining as well As long as they push each other to the brink

Thinking about betting on Tsonga... I have a hunch.
If you have a hunch Jose, go for it. Every time I ignore my gut, I get screwed.

The one match we have not discussed is Fed-Haas. Even though I have now stated that I think Fed will take this thing. It would not surprise me if this match is close. Specially based on what we've seen the last few days. When Haas is hot, he can trouble anybody. I still think Fed will take it, but 4, maybe even 5 would not stun me. Anybody think Haas could pull this off ??

What's with all the Swedish flags. I thought you were Swiss all the way from a support standpoint. Is it time for me to post one of my Bandwagon pictures on here.

Can't believe we are in a new thread already, heck, it was only at 700-800 when I came aboard. This is awesome !!!

Don't know if you caught my newest prediction after the last two day fiasco, but I now have a Fed-Murray final. For what ever that's worth, until now I had a Djok-Nadal final so you see how much I know.
