What Was Your First Post?

I was surprised to not be able to find a thread about this, so what was your first post on MTF? It'd be good if you quote it by the way Mine was very boring, it was just my FITD predictions for Doha

Re: What Was Your First Post?

How do you find it?

Federer will win another grand slam.
Cilic is not a one slam wonder.

The last 12 months Rafa and Fed has played a similar amount of tourneys, Rafa in fact one more than Fed. The #2 ranking will be very well deserved indeed, if he can find a way to beat Berdych tomorrow.

Looner, Fed have an excellent chance of #1 come Wimbledon, but if not there he could esily get it later - with very few points to defend from Rogers Cup and Cincinnatti and just an SF in US Open. If we look at points post US Open he has a commanding lead over Djokovic.
I had not learned to qoute at the time, in fact I learned most tricks around here slowly. Didn't discover User CP until July.

"Advanced Search", "Search by User Name" (your own), and "Sort Results by Ascending Order" is the easiest. Descending order is default so you'll have to change that.

Lleyton played a very good match, with great highlights, he really wanted to win the match.

Also I want to salute everyone in the forum, it's my first day here

Nobody answered me.

Nobody answered mine either. Could there be a bias against 1st posters? Freak3yman84 was lucky there, his was the kind of post where you don't expect an answer. Maybe that's a theme for a different thread: "What was the 1st answer you ever got?" A little more difficult to find, though.

No idea. But there's probably an inner-thing that makes you subliminaly respect the user a bit more if he has more than 1000 posts. (In big forums, of course).
It has been discused in some blogs. I know I've read those things in the past.

Examples: Andy Roddick, Igor Kunitsyn, Igor Andreev, Dmitry Tursunov. Roddick loses a valid 45, Andreev a valid 10 and Tursunov a valid 15 because the 0 from the Team Cup takes precedence.

Was this always so, or is it a new rule ?

Re: What Was Your First Post?

My first post: I was so sorry that Robby lost over in Thailand. He had really been playing some good tennis. I hope he doesn't get discouraged about the loss. And this was my answer: i'm sure he won't mae! robbys been very confident recently he'll be okay.

So, Ivan is great player, and he apsolutely deserves to be #3 tennis player in the world, Roddick lost last year in 1st round of USO too... SO WHAT?? IT HAPPENS!!! Lopez played great, like Ivan said... I'm Croat, and I'm proud of him... No matter what happens I'll be with him... It's not shame Ivan to lose, it is shame that you all do not understand who is Ivan Ljubicic!!! Like it's easy when you are 27 years old, became #3 in the world?!? And win DC!!! IVAN RULES!!!
Happy to notice my English skills are quite a bit better now.

Re: What Was Your First Post?

Mine was saying the Australian Open was my favourite slam.
Surprisingly no mention of Man City or hot girls like most of my posts

Favourite ATP players: Federer, Gasquet, Ferrer.

Hottest WTA Girls: Goerges, Ivanovic, Kirilenko, Sharapova, Wozniacki.

All-Time Hottest: Anna Chakvetadze

Good place to come in and make your first post here saying 'this one'

Bet you'd get a warm welcome and a ton of good reps. Come on lurkers, we know you're out there
