My ankle is very sore I have no alcohol in the house. Should I go and get some?
I will stay up as long as I can... would be really nice if Rafa can finish it off in 3 sets. I really can't stay up much past 1am.

Just watched the vid, thanks for the link

What did you do to your ankle?

Is that good or bad?

Now I wish Fed had beat Toad I would not have been so nervous and not for the sure outcome but because I don't mind so much Fed beating Rafa as Toad

No idea. I wore very flat shoes to work all last week. Maybe that's what's done it.

I second scoobs, why are they bothered for adding clay on the court?

Re: Merton launches a coup, takes over thread Rafachat vol 25

Conspiracy theories already never in doubt.

Linda, go get some alcohol.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Maybe it's just general maintenance and some patches are getting worn.

I think it will probably make no difference, but I assume they (the Spanish press) think it will help Sod, who has stated a preference for slower conditions.

It seems an odd thing to do on the day of the final. I assume, if people are commenting on it, that their actions must differ from the norm

So you think the Spanish press are overreacting about nothing?

Why have you got that in your sig?

Meanwhile Boggo is about to qualify for Queens.

I mean the press have to find an angle to sell papers, this is a good one as any to suggest it's an underhanded tactic to prevent their hero winning RG.

They used to water the courts after each set on hot days, but they don't do that so much these days.

My sig, well it's true.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
