Have you seen it?

Quote:
During Tuesday's official announcement that the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre in Vancouver would host the 2012 Davis Cup World Group tie between Canada and France, Tennis Canada unveiled a pair of provocative posters to promote the event. The Vancouver Sun reports that one featured Canada’s top player, Milos Raonic, with the tag line: "Hey France, I’ve got a 151 m.p.h. serve. Try returning that with a baguette."

Another poster has Canadian player Vasek Pospisil saying, "Hey France, Welcome to Vancouver. My hometown and your worst nightmare."

Tennis Canada’s Gavin Ziv said the arena will seat just over 4,500 and he hopes it will create a "loud and vibrant atmosphere while still remaining intimate. We’ve got to teach the people how it’s done around the world and we should do the same here. We are patriotic. We showed it during the Olympics and we can bring that here. Don’t come in with the mentality of ‘Quiet please.’ You’ve got to cheer for your country and make it hard on the other team."

Re: Dc 2011

"Break a leg" is an old theatrical expression as it's considered a jinx to wish someone good luck before they go on stage.
Anyway, I didn't think you were beng serious but it was unfortunate the way you phrased your post. Did you know that someone was banned here for posting a player could "go to hell" as that was consdered wishing death? Bit extreme I know! Anyway, no harm done
Team France

Of course i was NOT serious!!! I didn't say I WISHED injury on Rafa - just saying (or at least meant to say) that's about the only way someone could beat him. Rafa is actually one of my favorite players but that's not the point-I'm deeply offended that anyone would think I would wish injury on any player!!!!!!! BTW-ever heard of an old expression we use in America "break a leg" actually means "good luck". But thanks for the warning ...

Now for why I came to post - to Team France. It was pretty much mission impossible under the circumstances but still you guys worked hard all week despite the grim outlook. There's always next year.

Is NAdal first tomorrow? Now more interesting choices tomorrow for Forget. No way Richard beats Ferrer in Davis Cup so do you hope Simon can beat Nadal (big hope) and Jo play for richard in the 5th OR do you put Jo in for Simon, hope Jo can pull out the still VERY unlikely and then give Richard a brain transplant for a miracle in the 5th - or put in Llodra? Or better yet, break Nadal's arm overnight ....

First match tomorrow is Nadal so imo Forget has no choice but to play Tsonga and hope he is inspired cos Gilles's DC record is dismal and they have to get it to the 5th. If there is a 5th live rubber god knows what he'll do.

EDIT-apparently part of this post is misunderstood - not wishing injury to Rafa or suggesting anyone hurt Rafa. This is just my not so eloquent way of saying that it's pretty much impossible to beat Rafa.

Re: Dc 2011

Spain 2-1 France

Great performance from Llodra/Tsonga today!

It's likely that Tsonga will play instead of Simon tomorrow against Nadal.

Re: Dc 2011

We are up 5-0!!! What a start I believe Tsonga can beat Rafa because he is playing like he did at Wimbledon on clay But can Gasquet beat Ferrer if it gets this far?
