I'd accept late picks if it was up to me, but I've seen several ask already and all of them being referred to the rules in the OP so no chance here, I'm afraid.

Thanks I don't think I'll win, but I'll try. Have yet to win a tournament. The closest was in Shanghai when I had Murray in the final and he blew some match points....

bc i think ferrer lacks power in his game, he is just trying to get the ball inside, as a person i like him but as a player he is boring and thats why his h2h v the top is weak.

birdy took rafa to a 5 set last year, he is strong and a good player and if he has a little persistence he would have won a slam, ferrer has persistence but he is not that good to win a slam.
ferrer reach just 1 SF in a slam, birdy was a runner up on 2 different courst

Some fallacies in your argument

1) You believe there is nothing like 0% in tennis but still think Ferrer has 0%
2) Birdy never took Rafa to 5 last year . He lost in 4 and that match actually summed up why Berdych has 0% chance . He was hitting powerfully at the corners and because of the slow courts , Rafa got the balls back and Tomas made a unforced error . That is what will happen against Nole
3)Thats your opinion about Ferrer . I dont think Berdy has any chance to win a slam because he is just a mindless ball basher
4) I know for sure you dont follow tennis as Ferrer reached 2 semis alone last year and should have reached the final at wimbledon had it not been for that choke in set 2
Just to correct you Ferrer has reached the semis in 3 slams and was close to the 4th , same as Tomas who has also reached 3 semis

and still was unable to track down Berdychs fast balls . His problem is that he is half a step slower and as a result gets half a second later to the balls . In pro tennis , half a second is teh difference between an easy forehand winner to just getting the ball back in the court . Those balls are pounded by Tomas . Novak and andy dont have the power to hit through Fed

This is how fast Fed actually was against players who pounded the ball . See those passing shot winners which are non existant now

shame on me, i was sure birdy and rafa went to an epic 5 set.
as u can see im not a ferrer fan bc i dont like his game, his only real chance is RG and even then i doubt it.
i dont see birdy as a mindless ball basher and i think players will be more happy to play v ferrer then birdy and not just fed.
i know a lot of ppl think ferrer could have take out nole in USO this year but again i doubt it, i see him as a pusher who just put the ball back into court and he is super Persistence, that with rafa MIA gave him the n4 ranking.

asd you can see I an niether a Ferrer nor a Berdych fan Ferrer isnt a pusher , he is a player who hits some fantastic forehands and has a fantastic transition . Not what a pusher like Monaco can do

Tomas on the other hand has only 1 way to play . Hit hard and if it fails , then just hit harder . Classic defination of mindless ball basher

Players will definately choose Tomas over Ferrer because to beat Ferrer , you have to have a lot of stamina which just many players dont have . To beat Tomas , all you have to do is wait for the UF machine to come which is more often . They will have more chance to beat Tomas as a result as there is more chance he becomes a UF machine than them outgrinding Ferrer

Re: •°o* Ye Olde Castle Volume 61- Enjoy the Australian Open with us

I'll have an exam on thursday morning at 8am (i.e. 5pm Australian time) and it'll take a couple of hours. My biggest fear was that there will be an interesting match during the exam. And now I'm afraid that Rosol-Raonic starts when I'll have to leave to the Uni and Rosol triple-bagels Raonic faster than I do the exam.

What's going on here? Ferrer has reached 4 slam SFs!

Amber, looks like your thoughts on Ferrer are ripped straight from a Lenders post.
