2012 RIT Competition /// Stay strong Rafafans :hug:

Hi :-D

I've decided to take care of our beloved MIT (Metis Invitational Trophy) from now on.

The competition is renamed for RIT (Rafal Invitational Trophy)

Initially conceived as an idea by Linda (l_mac) and Metis (and run by Metis in previous years), it has grown in popularity and prestige over the last years. Kudos to Linda and Metis :worship:

I thought it would be more convenient to have a separate thread to post the results of our competition. Things will still go on the same way as last year with updates after each round in the tournament thread. However, after the completion of each tournament that our dear Rafito plays I will post the final results here and update the rankings table.

And now I want to call your attention to the RULES OF THE COMPETITION:


- In each tournament Rafa plays, people predict how far he will go by posting in the respective tournament thread started in the Nadal forum (or by sending me a PM). Everyone is welcome to participate.

- No predictions will be accepted after the beginning of Rafa's first match. You can change your prediction until that time.

- The posters that picked the correct round will receive points equal to the ranking points awarded by ATP to the winner of the tournament. The rest will win zero points.

- At the end of the season the poster(s) with the highest score will win the ...Rafal Invitational Trophy!

Restrictions: none for today :p


Have fun and take care
:wavey:

MariaV

Thanks b_o_c! :hatoff:
So we could make all our predictions here too? Actually why not, would make it simpler. The predictions would not get lost in the tournament/cheering thread.
Hmmm, I really don't know what to predict, I soooooooooooo want to say WIN but SF is more real. WIN or SF, WIN or SF, WIN or SF.......
Alright alright, I say WIN. Vamos!!!!!!! :rocker: :bounce: :bigclap:

01-13-2012, 05:24 PM

It really doesn't matter where to put your predictions. I'll browse both threads anyway :)

01-13-2012, 10:55 PM
I hope he loses to Federer in SF, I just want him to stay the fuck away from Djokovic!!! :unsure:

So I'm gonna say SF :)

And bring back the win and fail pictures pleaseeeeee :bigcry:

Xristos

VAMOOS.

:lol: You're right, I didn't think of it that way.

I hope he loses to Federer in SF, I just want him to stay the fuck away from Djokovic!!!

That would surely be a bigger disaster then a seventh straight loss to Djokovic, after the humiliation at WTF. If he can't beat any of the other top 4 anymore then we can only look forward to Barcelona :lol:

Almost said WIN but in the past it has taken Rafa until MC to stop the drought, so F.

Tsonga and Fed shouldn't be too difficult on this IW court, would like to see Fed become Rafa's turkey just to see the fun that ensues in GM.

03-20-2012, 11:18 AM
Rafa's own fault he lost, was terrible against Nalbandian too. More bullshit about being aggressive in the presser, why did it take him until a double break down to figure this out? :o He needs to go on court with it as his gameplan, if he did he would have won, and won in Australia too :mad:

My pick for Miami: Semis

that's so true...
he's constantly talking about agressiveness but still playing too passive especially against Federer :wavey:

Ben.
03-20-2012, 03:40 PM
Well against Fed he has to break a winning habit, so it is going to be harder but it has to be done. He's had two bad defeats against him in three matches and Fed had plenty of chances in RG and AO. If he starts to lose to him outside slams more often he will start to lose at the slams too.

Plus he doesn't take advantage of the space on Fed's FH side enough, sometimes hitting to Fed's BH to his own detriment and when he does take Fed out wide on the FH he doesn't come to the net, so he gets a short ball back on his BH and we all know he can't do shit to a short ball with his BH. Happened a good few times on Saturday.

If he doesn't have a successful clay season things could get ugly.

Tough to call this one because of the surface. Davydenko and Berdych will porbably trouble him but I expect him to come through anyway. Delpo/Isner both gave him close matches on clay last year so it would be a tough semi. Still, I'll say Final.

Raonic R2 :unsure: Worst possible first match after that choke. Going to be ridiculous pressure on his serve if things get tight.

Fuck it, I'll say win anyway, just because any other result is a disaster.

Grass season is upon us! My favourite time of year to watch Rafa play. I'll say he makes the semis of Halle before needing some well earned rest and celebration!

Ben.
06-11-2012, 05:44 PM
Is he still going to play?

Tough to call as I can't see him wanting to lose to Berdych in the SF as he has such a strangle hold over him but at the same time I can't see him putting in a 100% effort. So SF it is.

I'd love to see another Fedal match on grass though.

MariaV
06-11-2012, 06:12 PM
Uhhhh that was tough b_o_c! *wiping sweat like Rafa*

For Halle, God I don't even know what to say, OK let's say SF then. He needs some match play and hopefully he's not too exhausted from RG, he didn't have any too long or exhausting matches really, more like being stupid and nervous yesterday to finish the match. :o
