did the h2h mattered much at the USO 08 final?

that stat is very helpful on giving yourself a general idea of how two players match-up against the other, but is seriously overrated by a lot of people, it isn't something written in stone and you have to consider other factors like mental edge, form, experience, etc

Laura Robson is AWESOME, she made Murray look cute by association

And as a player, she has a great future if she doesn't get the same hype Murray has gotten

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Why won't you go back to NOLA? It's a great, fun city. I like the gulf too.. We grew up going to the Destin beaches. I haven't spent any time on the MS gulf coast.. but I did go to the Biloxi casinos once in college..

As for the tennis I will be very surprised is Fed doesn't win it all. Murray might give him a good run but I think he will come out on top. Serena too.

you have the money to satisfy her? imo she hasn't a good character. she's just behind rich men and looks after filling her own pocket. typical rich russian wifes. we have enough of them here. but if you like those kind of women...

Physics Imperial College in 90's

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Why do you think this Bilbo? I have the impression that she has been with Koyla for a really long time - way before he was rich.

so lemon custard will open volume #26. she will open the new volumes for a little while and after that, we can ask another lady castler to do the honors. castle growth and its values must be preserved and i believe this is the best way to do it.

as for pwc, i have asked jose to run it going forward. if he doesnt have the time then we will let somebody else run it. we can move that around as well. this gets more people involved and its best for the castle. its merely a matter of transferring ccrf to those who will be running it.

at some point, we probably will run out of all ccrf v cash.

She will not have to suffer it because of Murray. The spotlight probably will be on Murray for next 5 to 10 years.
