Re: The RafaChat for the Banned -- Past, Present, and Future. Vol. 70

The great man Berasategui doing commentary at Barcelona, this event wins.

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".

I'd have to scan it as it's an effort to type it out, though I might do it over Easter.

Is it true that you prepared for the Olympics by water skiing, going to pubs in Geneva and playing 1 hour of tennis with a 15 year old junior?

Yeah, I didn't practice so hard for the Olympics because afterwards I had to go to the USA for 5 weeks, then the DC semi in Geneva. So it was important for me to take a break. Because I hadn't played the week before. I was really enjoying playing at the Olympics.

So we're without the Barcelona thread? Maybe we could continue WG's Monaco thread, Sjoukje said the other player forums don't have a new thread for every tournament but they use one thread for many tournaments changing the title.
Andreea, I won't be posting much either, I guess most people are in the spring-summer mood already and not posting that much.

Where's minn? Maybe she can start the Barcelona thread for us?
Or Metis, should she return in time.

If not, Andreea, you can still start the thread and we can all contribute to it to find articles (and note for the "excuses, excuses" bunnies around here: "all" is more than "one person" )

I'm personally not a fan of a single cheering thread Why isn't one of the "true" fans opening it?

They better not or I will have to insist that all the tournament threads in the Nole/Fed forum are merged

Anyway, we need seperate threads for MIT

You are the only one they think is real.

I don't know how to tell them you are actually a pure-breed Safinette
