The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

rain and more rain and earth quakes, and tsunamis. you name it and we got it.

and new hampshire has been blanketed with more snow than ever before. just crazy weather patterns this year.

now lets hope its doesnt rain in acapulco.

djokovic is going to snatch that dubai title when the play resumes. e-gul has a shot at the title against fish.

and i do believe ferrero will use all his experience to get by ferru.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

I am looking forward to Dr Ivo v Fish. That could be a good one tonight.. You're right, Djok is all but locked it up, and I like JCF too.. he is on fire.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

fish may get by dr. ivo. he has a better ground game and a big serve of his own. we will just have to see. dr. ivo is weak on return of serve.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

I know, I like fish too and if he can hold down UEs he can take the Dr. out. Just hoping for a tight scoreline and some good TBs...

here is some info on the ferrero vs ferru showdown:

ABIERTO MEXICANO TELCEL

Acapulco Saturday Preview
Acapulco, Mexico
by ATP Staff
| 27.02.2010

David Ferrer has won five of his seven previous meetings with Juan Carlos Ferrero.
Spaniards Juan Carlos Ferrero and David Ferrer meet for the Abierto Mexicano TELCEL title tonight. It will be historic if Ferrero wins: no one has ever won three titles during the Latin American clay court swing (see below). Ferrero won titles in back-to-back weeks for the first time in the two weeks coming in, first capturing Costa do Sauipe and following that up with the Buenos Aires title (beating Ferrer in the final).

Ferrer still holds the overall head-to-head lead, 5-2. Ferrero is trying to become the first three-time winner on the ATP World Tour this year.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

glen did you get a chance to meet michelle (Meesh) last night? i had asked her to check out the castle. looks like she is comfortable here already.

we at the castle are just that easy going and we never meet a stranger. she may be posting some ansel adams photos when she gets a chance. i am looking forward to seeing some photos of yosemite. my little brother has hiked and biked this place twice. i have yet to make it there.
