He gave us such wonderful memories in that tournament. Hope for a repeat, or something similar, at the USO.

They're televising Haas-Nalby over here, never thought I'd see the day they show a masters tournament properly. Gunning for the winner to take Toronto.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Here's a tip. Don't regret nothin'. You ain't got the time. Before you know it, you'll be 60 something years old giving free advice to some cheapskate runt... Then going home and regretting it.

I do, but only rarely, on special occasions. Can't stand the taste of anything but cider and colourful extremely girly drinks

I love wine and Champagne. I guess maybe I should be French!

How do they normally show a Masters tournament? I'm all tennised out at the moment. It's lucky Roger withdrew, or I'd feel obliged to follow the tournament.

They like not showing early rounds and ignoring great match ups to show the top 4 maul some poor soul instead. Then they randomly show golf on other days. It's not too bad otherwise

Golf. We get whatever's on centre court, which means it's usually the top 4. We get Masters and slams from Round 1 though. How was the Haas/Nalby match?

Re: The Lurkers Melting Pot - Sponsored by World's #1 GOAT!

Great quality in the first set and most of the second. Got patchy at the end of the set and the tie-break with errors flying all over the place. Should have taken it in straights, but took it relatively comfortably in the third. Haas just looked fresher, fitter and pretty much younger than Nalby. Dunno how his stamina is these days, made a final last week didn't he? Worth the semi's at least if he holds out.

Re: The Lurkers Melting Pot - Sponsored by World's #1 GOAT!

I went to the tennis on Tuesday night
Raonic/Troicki and Isner/Andujar. Both were actually pretty good quality. Considering there were two "serve bots" there was actually some nice tennis, too.

Going to the Djoko/Tomic match tomorrow
Ajde!

You saw Isner. So envious.

Have fun at the Djokovic/Tomic match. That should be a good one.
