And yeah it is a fact he nearly always does that. The most reasonable posting there was the one I quoted, of Trollicki, saying "yeah Rafa, you will have to learn to cope with the pain, but that is the toll you pay for your playing style."
I said it already for years that Rafa won't get old on the courts with his way of playing tennis.
The other thread I had a look into was the match thread after the win of Zeballos... Nice to see I wasn't the only one who was surprised to see him win.
On in GM there are few threads, I'm suprised there are thread with lot of intelligent posts without trolling.
But few of them are terrible, nothing but trolling.
