Re: Help translating small Llodra video interview

I'm french i can easily translate what he said in his interview:

I could have been a professional soccer player instead of tennismen.I've got that in my blood, my father played for PSG
The man i woudn't like to have a drink with? The germans like Kiefer or Kolshreiber cause they are very stone cold,lunatic, don't often say hello.
They guy you hate the most? Guillermo Coria above all, he has the behaviour of a cheater sometimes.
Best memory: Henri leconte winning vs Sampras in Davis Cup, my first great moment of TV
Tennismen it help to seduce girls? Yes, but i already got a girlfriend and things are clear in my head, you just need to know what you exactly want in life, set the right boundaries, etc...
Worst moment in your career? The davis cup final vs Serbia in Belgrad, i was undefeated befor in davis cup,i played well in quarters final. We knew the double would be important, we manage to reverse the situation with ARnaud Clement after being down 2 sets. In the final match, i play a guy who doesn't make lots of unforced errors and i took a beating in Straight sets. It was the holy grail for me, as important as a grand slam , it was tough to digest

Maybe. The chess playing Caruana's family lived in USA by the time the tennis player was born, though, so not a sibling.

It´s not the site, I used to have this problem in chrome, I solved it by resetting chrome to default but might have other causes like add blockers or network blocking flash

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

I don't if anyone else has had these issues or knows what to do but I've been having problems using the forum lately. A lot of the things I normally used to be able to do I now can't.

-Some pictures don't show up (just says "Attached Thumbnail") and avatars arent showing up
-Quick reply doesn't work, I click post but nothing happens
-Same thing with likes, I click like but nothing happens
-When trying to post I don't see any of the options, ie bold/underline/color/smilies etc and also can't post pictures because that button is also not there.
-Can't view notifications as there is no down arrow to click on

I wish I could post the screenshots

Can anyone help with this? It's driving me crazy and just started out of nowhere

Per ATP Profile

Liam Caruana

I have seen on some websites that he represents Italy, and others that he represents the USA. Does anyone know which of these is true?

They are in terms of ranking points if you are a direct entry. If you look at Roger's points breakdown, he has zero points from RG and Flushing Meadow last year, but both are included in his tournament count. Masters' are a different kettle of fish with the 1/2/3 exemption thing. There's a thread hereabouts showing how this works and who has how many exemptions.

Well, looks like it's more complicated than I thought: How Reduction of Commitment works.

Basically Federer is exempt from "Player Commitment", which includes participating in the Masters, because he has reached all the milestones necessary to be eligible for said exemption.

Nadal will be eligible next year and Djokovic/Murray the year after that.

Additionally, if none of the milestones apply and a Top 30 player (defined as "Commitment Player" by the ATP) doesn't participate in a Masters, his result for that master still counts towards his ranking. This should also mean, if that player has instead participated in smaller tournaments, they will not count towards his ranking.
