I see Veronique is back to her old self, stubbornly disrupting the thread.
Isn't it odd that a word whose derivation means blood, is an adjective meaning cheerful or optimistic? Just a thought.
It makes sense to me. Blood is bright red, a vibrant color, it flows through the body giving life.
I'll respectfully disagree then. That's against the spirit of the forum. Otherwise there would have been an invite system set up to that effect.
Oh btw, I was actually invited to this thread.
Who was it that invited you? Just curious.
Hey! They let Canadians into this contest! I think there are three in the finals.
Youngest girl in in the competition just spelled apolaustic -- never heard of that word before.
It's a Greek word of course.
In Greek it means something that brings great delight and enjoyment.
Veronique didn't like what Andreea said about Gael. Andreea didn't like what Veronique said about not liking what she said. Veronique said tough.
This paraphrased, of course.
Veronique completely misunderstood Andreea's post which was sarcastic and was inspired by this:
Thread for RG crowd unappreciative posters. And calimero - Rafachat vol.71
When you're not a regular and you don't know people well, better be careful before you start picking fights.
I should be able to watch Rafa's match live since it's on first.
I don't think I will be able to watch Federer/Nole, which is probably for the best. If Rafa wins his SF match, it would be best if Federer won as well because Rafa beating Federer in a slam final is always
the best possible outcome. That's just my rational analysis, though.
If I actually had to watch Federer/Nole, I would probably not be able to convince myself to root for Federer. (If I thought Rafa had zero chance against Nole, then I could do it, but I think Rafa can beat Nole--and that victory would be only slightly less sweet than beating Federer.)
If Rafa loses to Muzza (
), I'll have to back Nole against Federer since I would have zero faith in Muzza beating Federer in the final. I would definitely support Muzza against either Nole or Federer in the final if it came to that.
If Rafa wins tomorrow and on Sunday, I don't know which scenario I prefer:
1. Rafa wins RG and keeps his no1 ranking.
2. Rafa wins RG and beats Djoko.
They're equally appealing.
If Rafa loses in the final, losing to Federer and losing to Djokovic are equally unappealing. Consequently, I'm not going to root for anyone in the 2nd SF. As I said earlier I wish they could both lose.
