How are you Linda my dearest? I see you sensibly ignored GM's comments about Rafa and doping

Are you playing football?

I am fine. I have decided just to ignore the doping comments this year (okay, maybe a few :retard: smilies for the really stupid comments) and the next step will be not even to click on the threads.

My heart sinks when I read that Rafa has been speaking out against WADA I read the newest one last night on vb, and it was only about 40 minutes later that MY posted it on GM. Of course she was supportive of Rafa's stance, and I'm sure she can't have expected some of the respnses the thread generated.

Yeah hopefully the game gets called off or something, if not I've got the problem of whether to Sky + it and not find out the score or just check the score on my phone before kick off, at half time and full time

NID when I saw the thread that Glenn would pipe up with some original comments.

I'm sure MY's sole intention was to show her support for Rafa too

Aren't all 3 guys left your numpty?

I'll presume you mean Verdasco. He does, if he carries on playing the way he has been. I don't think he will though, partly because it's his first slam SF and partly because Rafa is a bad match-up for him, he's been using the swinging serve out wide a lot this week but it plays into Rafa's forehand nicely.

Most slams are made for you, you're a Fedal

Surely it's better for you if Nando wins, it gives your real favourite the best chance of claiming the title

Deuce court is the side of the court they always serve to on the first point of the game - if it goes to deuce, they're always serving to that same side e.g. Right to left (on 0-0, then 30-0, 30-30, deuce).....Advantage court is the point they'll always be serving to on the 2nd point of the game and when it's advantage e.g. Left to right (0-15, 15-30, 40-adv). Did that make sense?

Re: The AO Battlefield Chat Thread

andreea

i always think of it from the server's pov, the ad court runs diagonally from his left side to the receiver's right. the deuce court runs diagonally from the server's right side to the receiver's left.

maybe this diagram will be clear?

Re: The AO Battlefield Chat Thread

I think Andreea has been on the tonight




Ok Andreea think of it like this. You know they switch sides where they're serving to after each point? Well the first point will always be from the red arrow on WG's diagram. So will the 3rd point of the game. And the 5th. So basically all the odd numbers. The advantage court, as shown by the yellow arrow on WG's diagram will always be where the 2nd, 4th, 6th etc. point of the game is started from.

This Fedal thing is like tossing a coin and picking either heads or tails. Now Verslutsco is added to the mix, WG?

Come on for once- declare your loyalty for ONE of them, or I'll start spamming your inbox with really bad things.

EDIT: Tennis cred saved by the addition of a visual aid.
