I've been enjoying the various Castle season premiere reviews (some media representatives have already seen the episode) and various promotional pictures like this or this. Can't wait for Sept 24th

It was just 20 minutes, sorry that the teacher had to wait but well, worse things happen. Tallinn is like a village with barely 40,000 people but traffic here is IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!! OK I better not start ranting but watch Ferru vs Tipsy.
Btw now I always look carefully on Google Maps when I have to go somewhere new.

Hottttt Castle promo photos btw!

I survived just fine - was quite entertained by the second set masterchoke.

Yeah. That's awful. I know you apologized. It wasn't like you decided to go shopping or something.

I was supposed to get Anna from daycare once and it was the day I was moving out of my house, and I totally forgot about her until nearly closing time. So awful. She was fine with it, but there was only one other child there.

Petru just loved to be picked up the last from kindergarden

My mom, God bless her, went once to pick him earlier to take him to the park and he threw a terrible tantrum nobody dared to tell me about

I don't know if anyone can beat Nole, I haven't seen him play here, but probably not. Still, it would be great if we had a new slam winner again. Murray probably deserves it the most but I would like Berdych or Ferrer more.

Re: Rafachat - vol. 79. we all want Rafa back, even the haters :angel:

Ferrer would rather have Rafa than high ranking
The title is a bit misleading, I'm guessing (I'd have to read the full transcript of the press conference/interview it is based on)

Quote:
David Ferrer might have had more Grand Slam success if Rafael Nadal were not playing tennis, but the 30-year-old US Open semi-finalist is happier to have Nadal on the court than a higher ranking.

"I think Rafael is very, very important for us because he's the best player in the history of Spain and one of the best of the world," Ferrer said.

"I don't care if without Rafael I was the No. 1 of Spain, because I think I learn a lot with him, being close to him.

"I think in Spain people are looking more at tennis because of Rafael in these moments, and I think it's very good for us (and) for the other players."

Ferrer matched his best Grand Slam showing by reaching the last four on the Flushing Meadows hardcourts on Thursday by defeating Serbian eighth seed Janko Tipsarevic 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7/4) in four hours and 31 minutes.

Nadal, who missed the US Open this year with a knee injury, is staying in touch with his compatriot by telephone and e-mail.

"I talk with Rafa these days, like text, private conversation," Ferrer said. "Of course Rafael is always happy when I win matches. If I will win Saturday I will talk with him for sure.

"He texted me today. He say, 'Good luck'. Nothing special."

Ferrer says he owes a lot of his success to having learned from Nadal.

"I learn a lot of him," Ferrer said. "I learned mentality, and he's a very, very great person. He's one of the best and he's a normal person."


Still...dammit, I miss watching Rafa on court.

Hi, my first post in this subforum. A Rafa fan girl here. I hope he gets better soon. Ferrer's words about him are really nice.
