No way

If Rafa loses today I'll totally blame you. Fair warning

Thanks Andreea, I suspect Linda does not want to open the thread for jinxing Rafa. I don't nelieve in jinxing.

Jinxing is for wimps.

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".

Yes, the Man delivered. Kasparov crushed Short 6-1 in wins, a huge score for that level in chess.

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

Merton don't you dare change the title to something unpleasing

Maybe we should stick to "Rafa fangirls and Fedtard fans"

*nervous*

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

That's a beatdown Merton and who ended up winning that chess match with the Indian guy and the Bulgarian dickhead.

I like Bulgaria, very nice country good food and it's cheap.

Don't worry Linda, I will behave

Besides, certain posters will avoid the thread because they will not know the meaning of the word coup

George, Anand won decisively in the very last game of the match. Best part was the Bulgarians using excused and whining afterwards.

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

Wonder if there was much betting going on this match Merton, if so was Anand the underdog?

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