Yep, just changed in the weekend. Previously it celebrated Czechs' Davis and Fed Cup double and before that I had a president Homer avatar.

I didn't even recognise my own posts when I switched to this avatar at first

Really had to look closely. But I seem to have spent enough time on MTF to know just about everyone by their user name

Well, at least I've got a few votes this round facing a user who has 10 times more posts than me.

Yes. Very good.

It finished some years ago but now they decided to make a new season and a movie (will come out next year).

What was your previous avatar?

Hope I get where you are now eventually. How long do you take to pick up on someone changing both name and avi at once? Like Rafarta&Grigorior who suddenly became Naudio Spanlatine. That one threw me for a while.

Not sure, I've had this one for quite a while. But I usually change it when Rafa wins something big, so my guess was a picture of him winning the Davis Cup.



I think it was this one

Interesting picture, that. Actually looks like a pickpocket is sneaking up on him. Don't suppose he had a wallet in his back pocket, though.

One of the most underrated matches of recent years this one, imo. Great contest, truly befitting of a Davis Cup deciding rubber. Shame Del Potro wasn't fit enough at the time to extend it to 5 sets as he outplayed Rafa for large chunks of the match, but still a great effort. Rafa was his usual self, weathering the storm and coming through with his superior fitness and defense, not to mention some spectacualar shots from seemingly impossible positions.

I don't know how anyone still left in the competition dare vote against me while I'm counting most of the votes. Deliberately miscounting is so easy...

Seriously, thanks for the kind words I'm am already at the stage where I have to vote against people I like a lot, so you have my complete forgiveness and I hope for theirs.

It wasn't his fitness, it was his mentality. I remember he missed those easy FH sitters at *5-3 30-0 to get broken But +1, it was truly a sensational match.
