I'm also following football, but I'm reliably informed that Verkerk is winning the baseline exchanges ... for now, anyway.

If you haven't seen him play, check the GM thread "who pulls most ludicrous faces" (someting similar) :D

Well done Martin, I think its his first title

Nymeria
02-02-2003, 03:52 PM
yeah, yesterday they said it would be his first final, I think then it must be his first title :D :D :D

Sjengster
02-02-2003, 04:43 PM
:bounce: :bounce: Martin!!! :bounce: :bounce:

This only lends weight to my theory that the Dutch will be slight favourites against Switzerland in Davis Cup next week... even if Verkerk isn't on the team, the others will surely be inspired by his success.

Zhenya, I'm honest to my word. I'll never forgive you for this.

This is why they called him Face:
