Re: Sculpting a victory: A Pygmalion Slogan for the Australian Open! SF v Ferrer

Wow. When does he play like this? Is there a trigger (?) - we should make sure he turns it on for the Final.

Nole, because I am magnanimous, I will allow you to lose twice as many games as you lost today in the final. You're welcome, dear.

true, his FH that night was a just a winner every 4 seconds - though Nadal wasn't moving particularly well iirc, the abdomen? Nole won 16 straight points or so though, I think?

I only caught the final games of the match but if you guys are being accurate with what you are saying, then I you Novak. I take back all my insults this past week!

Main Husbands
The Serbian Moron
That Pasty Scottish Bloke

The side pieces
The Sweet but Dopey Argentine
The Bulgarian Headcase
That Douche from Australia

And when the daylight's fading we're gonna play in the dark til it's golden again
