He is quite a slimey little shit, yeah. But you kind of understand why he does the lousy things he does. He reminds me of that rat professor from Harry Potter. He has a ratty face.

It's a drama? Why does Matthew Rhys sound so familiar...

Most likely Kevin from Brothers and sisters.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Respect man, apparently arm is pretty cool, so I can respect losing to her.

But I would give you a vote if I could

Sounds good. I like the part where you're not an ass

Don't forget to enter Mr MTF. Many of my favourite guy posters are too shy, so I won't be able to vote for them. And the defending champ said he's not participating this year, so you won't have to compete with his abs of steel

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

WOW I didn't even know for this contest and I'm a 25th seed.
I trashed a qualifier in the first round as well, 36-2. If only winning my ITF futures matches would be so effortless.

Thank to everyone who voted for me and try to push into the 3rd round at least. I have similar seeding and expectations as Seppi lately.
I will vote for you guys to return the favour.

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

The 3rd quarter proved interesting in that every single participant listed on the left side (the favourite) won. Not a single upset, even a small one. That must be unusual.

Actually, neither. My lenses were working fine but I've wanted to do the surgery for years (must be nice not to need lenses I thought) and I realized I had some money to spend for once so I did it.

Anyway, I like this contest. Even though some people (won't name names) are just trying to manipulate others for votes, I really like the popcon spirit overall. It truly brings out a positive (and surprisingly soft) atmosphere in MTF once a year... it's like MTF's own christmas.
And a white christmas it is.

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

Looks like I won my round with quite the comeback. I think my opponent was leading something like 7-1 at one point. Well, that's 2nd round for the 3rd year in a row. Not bad, I guess. Let's see if I live up to my seeding, though I probably won't

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 2 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 630-174...
TITLES: 44 and counting...
