Serving with 4 balls is also tough



so I just got back from Scotland, in the 48 hours I was there it did not stop raining and snowing heavily for even a minute, we also had sleet and hail. Must've been about 35mph winds as well, truly horrible weather

Re: Chat Thread "The Den of Spite and Iniquity"

I'm at work now and I can't give you the link but I red a blog yesterday how about the H2H is actually 27-17 in Roger's favour because he won more tournements when Rafa was in the draw than the other way around

There was a meeting for the whole Scotland squad for this tournament in the summer, so I had to go up for that. My dad still lives there as well so I saw him. How was your weekend? I saw Rafito struggled with the transition back to clay

Yes, Serbia captain took advantage of Rafa's weaknesses and won 12 games in two matches

Yes he did. He himself thought he was bad on Friday.
Nadal annihilates Tipsarevic 6-1, 6-0, 6-2, Spain 2-0 Serbia

So people here might be righfully scared about him defending the RG title. He migh as well gift it to Rogi as a token of his eternal love. And WG would be happy then.

Well it depends on who you talk to. The Swedes are always having a go at the Finnish language, but I think it's cool.

Here is something in Finnish.

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".

Thanks for that link, George. I'll listen to it when I get home (my work computer doesn't have sound )

He is one of Finland's best ever hockey players, but Maria is the expert on the Finnish language in here.

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

GWH! Teemu is a legend!

Btw do you know that another Finnish legend Janne Ahonen will make a comeback next year and try to FINALLY get that individual Olympic medal in Vancouver. It was one of the most improtant sports news on Finnish TV this morning.

Re: Chat Thread "The Den of Spite and Iniquity"

Teemu is a legend and he used to play for my old ice hockey team, well the one that I used to support anyway, before they got moved. At the same time, I was able to find their jersey and it doesn't cost as much as I thought it would, which can only be a good thing.

No, I didn't know that thanks Maria.

Yup. That's me.
I'm as unbiased as Adam when talking about Fedals.
