I am straight. Never felt attracted to a woman, or a RL one, at least, but I wouldn't say I am absolutely sure I am part of those (7%).

But that is just one of many theories.
I would say likewise. Never felt attracted to a boy in real life. Only girls, but I don't think that makes me as straight as an arrow.

Watch him blow this tie-break.

But I'm sure Nole will do his best to eliminate Murray.

Oh look, what's going on in this tie-break?

I am always optimistic. But I never think about whether my favourites win or lose. I just try to appreciate their efforts and enjoy their matches.

Usual Nole Check his TB record this year. Really pathetic for a #1

As a number one, he doesn't really have to play many tie-breaks, or at least should not be expected to, given the quality of his return of serve.

But you're right, he's lost tie-breaks in important matches this year and to some unlikely foes.

Thank God Berdych is awful in big moments against Djokovic.

Berdych did it all himself.

Bollocks to that. Deep down, Nole wants Tsonga to win in straights.

Djokocoaster.

It was evident throughout the match that Berdych did not believe in himself.

I doubt it. I would rather Murray goes through so that him and Fed can kill each other off in the semis. Why give Roger an easy semi?

He only believes in himself when Roger is on the other side of the net. And I don't mind it.

Who would you rather have Nole face in the final (assuming he gets there? Murray or Federer?

Roger may still finish second if Delpo wins in straight.
