Re: The Overjoyed Chat Thread

Ah, I see. Good luck with getting that new project then. Fingers crossed. I guess in a lot of companies it depends on how senior you are. If you are senior and valuable enough they may bear the burden for a while without you having the project.

I want him to win RG definitely because that would be a nice record to have. But I really want him to also win the USO. That would be reall icing on the cake, and then I would sort of not like it if he didn't win Wimbledon again........ so I guess when you add it all up -- I want him to win everything!

Good luck with that kiddo.

Just more hanging black drapery and bemoaning the death of tennis and overuse of "mug." I'm hoping for something more witty. I'm thinking I should set new words to American Pie. "The day that tennis died So we were singing bye bye Federer guy. Took my Wilson to the tourney, but only could cry. The good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing this'll be the day that I die.

Couldn't really come up with anything for the last part there off the top of my head.

Thanks for posting that. I saw it during the tournament and tried to describe it here, but really you have to see it. "I met some nice people but they went home." It was very cute.

e) It's not fair that Rafa's a lefty so he has the advantage on break points.
f) He's got an advantage over me by playing me so many times on clay.

Probably there was more, I can't remember.
Yeah. You left out the "I was unlucky" parts.

Thanks I think if worst comes to worst I will ask for some unpaid vacation instead of letting them fire me. But it depends on the amount of time, of course.

I just turned on Ljubicic-Troicki. I'd never noticed the weird hip motion that Troicki does when he serves

Re: The Overjoyed Chat Thread

OK I don't want to send anyone into a paroxysm of joy or anything but... Pablin won another match!!!! Yes it's true, two matches in a row in a ATP MD.

Next is prolly Capdeville, which is good cuz they gotta put the homeboy on livestream but bad cuz... cadillac is playing v v well, at least he was when he kicked the shit out of schwankeleh monday...

Re: The Overjoyed Chat Thread

Hi everyone

Evita, hope your job will be safe

Did anyone see the news report I posted that Bangkok is trying to entice Rafa to play there? Do you think he will? Me, I really hope he does because, I can be there and watch him for sure. I am keeping my fingers crossed for that one.

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!!

And to keep up with you, Marcos AND Ferru won two matches in a raw too I couldn't be more happy And Pico won the 1st set. Is this bliss or what?
