Back from vaccation.

Hey everyone!

After Federer's shocking loss against Safin in AO I decided to take a vaccation from tennis fro around 2 months when the clay season begins. As u see I couldn't stay away from tennis that long and I am back.

I won't hide from what I have said and what I have predicted. All I can say is that I never really overestimated Federer, but I rather underestimated one of his opponents, his name is MARAT SAFIN. I want to thank him for giving Federer a match we will all remember, the best match I have ever seen and that cost me 2000 US$, maybe 50000 if Federer goes and win the rest of the grand slams this year. Federer played nearly his best and Safin played nearly his best and the match was absolutely thrilling. I can't explain with words how much it hurt me to see Federer go down after having match point, after turning the match when all hope seemed lost and saving all those match points which made my feelings go up and down like a roller coaster. When Safin Finaly just let the ball go over the net in the middle of the court with Federer down on the floor (seemed to be the only way for Safin to win the match, knock Federer down like in a boxing match) the only words I had was "what a worthy way for a master to finaly loose", if Federer would simply have lost 6-3 and given up the 5th set it would hurt much less but I wouldn't feel as proud of him.

Now, time to look forward, I will save my signature for the rest of the year, I don't want to hide what I have said and how arrogant I have been against the other talented players in the atp tour.

Can't wait for the next match between federer and Safin...

Fair enough makro, but it does rather worry me that now you've turned up again, Federer's in danger of losing a second match on the ATP Tour this year.

Yeah, maybe I bring bad luck. I heard he had been winning everything since I took a break from tennis.

What is even more sick is that I came back exactly when it was 5-3 for Federer, that was the 1st result I have checked in tennis for 2 months. He was serving for match and lost 4 straight games against Zabaleta. Nice welcome back, Federer!

I just hope in future you'll be ending this talk of Federer winning 15 Slams and doing the Grand Slam twice... did you really bet that much money on the match? Foolish, given how close Safin pushed him at the TMC at the end of last year. I seem to recall you saying that Safin's head was going to make him lose the AO match in straights, it didn't quite turn out that way.

I bet 2000 US$ that Federer would win all 4 grand slams and I could have won 55-60k US$. If Federer wins the next 3 grand slams Safin's match against Federer will cost me 60k US$.....

Then change it, mak

didn't think it would happen, winning 4 slams is too difficult.

Welcome back!

If you choose to look at how much he has gained, you surely will be depressed. :)

Thank u, but I am not afraid to take critic from anyone even if I admit my errors and I am still optimistic. I think Federer will win 2 tmc clay titles and roland garros. Does anyone know any site where you can bet on the clay season, like combining the different big clay titles u think Federer will win?

betfair - someone will lay you such an option if you request it, heck after today i'm tempted to do it for you if the price is right

I keep thinking that says back from vaccination, because you've got the two c's there, instead of one!
