You know German? I love Roger, but not to the extent that I'd learn German just to read QfT.

Me too, otherwise I probably wouldn't have thought he was gorgeous and therefore wouldn't have became a fan.

Anyway, I just popped in because I didn't think it was worth putting in the articles thread, but Fed gets a mention in this article about coffee/beer/curry-splattering moments in sport : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/foo...-the-sofa.html
That point at 5-6 down or whatever it was in the first set tie break on Monday would probably have done it for me!
if I were to make a list of such moments, it would probably never end. But that hot dog was incredible, as was the point that you mentioned.

My dad is a big hater ; he enjoys cheering against someone more than cheering for a favourite. He liked Borg and he was a big Sampras fan. He was mad at Fed for ending Sampras's career. But then Rafa came along. He really hated Rafa so he cheered for Fed for a while. Also he liked Roger's graceful playing style. Then Djokovic came along and he decided to support him because we're also Serbian (he's not sure if he would like Djokovic at all otherwise). He also likes Ferrer.
Like Doris said, what's his MTF username? This means that your tennis knowledge is deeper than I'd thought. Time to school some of those clowns in GM, especially the ones that claim that the current crop of players would beat players from previous eras easily.

This case was a rather nasty one though, I fear many folks fell for it, as they looked pretty decent... it was only after I started adding 1 + 1 = 2 and not 3 myself, when I discovered I was actually dealing with scammers.
What's a freelance lawyer? Do you work pro bono? Or do you not belong to any law firm in particular?

But there are all sorts of ballots you can enter for Wimbledon tickets. Just don't trust online resale agencies for Wimbledon. First of all, it's illegal, secondly, it's way overpriced.
Do you mean the official one? The ticket allocation is random, no? I was referring to those travel agencies that sell sports travel packages. I used this company called Keith Prowse when I went to Melbourne - got good seats + hotel, that sort of stuff.

Seriously? They don't have anywhere to sleep? I'm living in central London right now so I have a room here but Wimbledon is quite far away.

Omg what if I meet Roger again and I'm all smelly and gross?

I lost by a margin, after all my efforts!

And a loss hurts, even at the ACC!

Yes, you blew my cover. Brilliant detective work.

I REALLY want to go though, after considering it. Probably can only go Friday - Sunday, assuming he makes it that far. He should, right?

Doris, what sessions did you buy?

Did you find it difficult to learn? It sounds and looks so difficult.

The only German words I know are 'danke', 'auf wiedersehen', and 'Federer'.

German is a tricky language to learn. I gave up after a few years of trying.

Hi all. I have to share what a dream I had some nights ago.
I'm still involved in it and ho nice it was

I was playing the doubles in a tournament in the tennis-club.
So I had to change my partner - I don't remember the reason.
So I had that new one and I wasn't yet concious of who he was but we were in the court and we had to decide who where receives and who serves as 1st. So I turn back and I see Roger but in my dream or he wasn't the GOAT or I wasn't concious of it. But he seemed to be more a my level player that I as good as he is He wasn't able to decide who to serve and I remember I was telling him that we have to serve one time he and one time me and that it was better him to start because as a man he had few possibilities to be broken even he played not so bad tennis as his tactical ideas
Of all this I have only a flash and not a clear image. Just the idea of what happened

After I remember I was at the net and he at the baseline.

In that part of the dream he seemed so real as he all was reality When sometimes I turned back to see what was he doing (all about the game) I noticed (I didn't know it yet in the dream ) how handsome he was and all his charm was amazing me. So I knew I had to focus more on the match and not on him but his presence was instigating and terminating me

Unfortunately than I woke up and all finished but whit this nice sensation. I still continue thinking of it smiling


BTW. Today I played a nice double match with another partner but anyway I had a lot of fun.
We played a great shots and I could sign some of them.

Actually I have them sometimes. But I've never dreamed Roger so live. To be honest I dreamed him after the WTFs final. I was dreaming that match and he was hitting a killing FH so I was thinking. "Don't wake up.. don't and this time he's going to win the match" But I woke up and I couldn't change the thighs. After I felt as sad as I was after he lost

It's not the easiest language to learn, certainly - all those cases, endings, and most of all their habit of sticking the verb at the end of a 200-word sentence (drives me nuts at times) - but I'm told that Russian, Mandarin and Japanese are worse . I had to do a crash-course from zero to "O-Level" standard (the exam you used to do at the age of 16) in 2 years! Yuck.

I lived in Russia for a while, but didn't pick up that much of the language at all. It is a rotten language to learn and much worse than German. But the latter is tricky to get the hang of, and you're right, the verb is always at the end, no matter how long the sentence is!
