For Star, one Malisse pic during his practice session before Rafa's match on Sunday (a very bad pic because it's from too far away):


See what I mean with blurry?


For Andreea, a craptastic pic of Ferrer just to prove that I did try to get him on picture.
(that's from his practice session with Rafa on Saturday)


Okay, I'm done.

Companies should not hold more then 10% of the market each to ensure healthy competition and a true free market. the fact that this shit firm holds 60+ % already shows that there is no real free market but de facto a monopolist situation. the perfect condition for bad business.

She-of-the-delicate-nose making her opponent wait. More than Rafaesque.

Where is Saumon? I miss her.

hilde!! omg, you rock thank you for the pics

cd2, this is faulty reasoning. some industries do not lend themselves to competition because of the huge infrastructure costs or other high barriers to entry. network-based industries often fall into this category and i belive jm works for one such company, no?

natural monopolies are not inherently evil but only a function of the market. plus there are forms of regulation that can be used in such cases.

Sometimes we think of as natural is only what we are used to. People used to talk this way of the phone company (I say "the" because There wad only one) I don't know if destroying that monopoly was good or bad, but certainly we function without it. Also, I think the regulatory system tends to be corrupt. If there is truly an organization that should have no competition, it seems to me that the gov't shoiuld run it and not a profiting company.

Even more bad luck that I'm at the tournament already and my condo is prepaid.

Well I suppose I should get back to tennis now. Btw v v strong winds. Gusting up to 65 mph. That nearly as fast as the second serves I'm seeing today.
