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).

There is a small chance Nadal will not win RG, but it is a small chance.

Phew! Nadal struggled but won!
Now on to Novak.

Yeah, I also hold a grudge on Melzer for beating Hewitt in Las Vegas one year.

Re: o*Ye Olde Castle vol.32

he is winning near 99% of his matches in a best of 5 sets foremats. so that is something like 54-1 on clay in a best of 5 sets foremats when he is relatively healthy and fit.


here for the non-believers is his record on clay. you may want to consider this before making crazy predictions. folks he is going to keep winning here for at least 2-3 more years to come. you better get used to it. looks like he has finally learned to cut back on his tennis to collect the much needed rest and recovery in between tournament. you cant always demolish your opponents. almagro even took tsonga to 5 sets on hard courts in australia. the dude has major game and it was on fire today.

almagro played out of his mind today and still lost in straight sets. he had no other choice but to go for broke. his shots found their mark with incredible regularity and still he could not manage a single set.



clay warrior`s updated clay-court win-loss records:

In his ATP Tour career: 200-16 (a 92.59 winning percentage)
Since the start of 2005: 174-6 (a 96.67 winning percentage)
Since the 11th April 2005: 160-4 (a 97.56 winning percentage)
At the French Open: 35-1 (a 97.22 winning percentage)
Career 5 set record on clay: 53-1 (98.14 winning percentage)
