I am not a deluded to think that Nalbandian is THE best player in the world, but I do think he is among the ones with most god-given talent. Nor I think that when he really tries and plays his best he is unbeatable (you can see it from my posts about his bad match-ups, like Wawrinka in general or Almagro on clay in best of 3). Even when I do feel sometimes different about certain things, when I post I am trying to be objective to the max, although I can't deny that sometimes my judgment might be clouded a bit, for example after some huge disappointment, but that happens very very rarely because I try not to post while I am being still emotional about some match.

I meant it to a lesser extent what your posts imply, I'm sure you don't overrate him that badly. I mean everyone knows he's inconsistent. I can't find my post anymore, but I think it was made before Monte Carlo and Barcelona. Anyway I accept your explanation and I think I've said pretty much what I've wanted to. I wouldn't mind discussing with you individual matches in the future here, I don't mind disagreeing with people and I consider it a good discussion as long as we listen to each other (or whether we all just write our own separate reports, whatever).

I really don't like that fat-fit parallel the others are using that much. Never even used the word fat in any of my post.

This place has turned into a fuckin' wasteland. We were doing fine until a certain interloper came along. Like Claudia asked, HeretiC, could you please state the reason you came here? We'd love to have your response.

I did it couple of posts before but I won't mind doing it again. Main reason is that I realized that the best place to talk about players is in their adequate fan base place in MTF instead of in GM where you will be almost certainly crusified by many oportune posters who are not interested in talking tennis and are interested in starting a quarrel. Second was that I found my name in negative context and I was curious about the reasons for it.
If this is not the right place to talk about Nalbandian then plase tell me that I was wrong.

As I said before I have no intention to post anywhere where I am not welcomed, and you are trying to insult me all the time. I don't get it, did I do something wrong with posting here or did I insult someone?

Just remember I caught you out during the Andreev and Almagro match at Monte Carlo and I was proven right, that you started that thread too soon and you admitted it. You aren't the only one to have done it and I have caught them as well.

This is why I called you a clown, you could not wait for the match to be over, before starting a result thread of a match that I was watching and it was 2 minutes early before it was completed.

As for being a Nalbandian fan, yes do overrate him quite a bit.

You accused me of starting every thread before it ends. Of course that I admited that I started that thread prematurelly beacuse I've mistaken the MP ball for an out and thought that the match is over and I explained that (never denied it), but accusing me that I am doing it all the time was out of line. Acctually your accussations made me record that video to show that feeds are indeed lot faster then streams and regular TV's (not even mentioning SB, huge time difference). If admiting the only mistake that I made and defending the truth makes me clown then so be it.

Considering that I know about delays, especially since the umpire has to talk into a microphone, while pressing his key pad, when the set is done and that takes time for the message to come through.

It shouldn't happen, starting match threads before they are over, seems to be overeagerness at best. It has happened quite a lot and considering I do have access to these TV channels that show tennis at times. I know when it's been started before matches are done.

I'm not the only one to have accused you and if you have done it once, there is a chance it could happen again.

Come on 2 minutes before isn't funny.

It happened once cause I thought that the match is over(on MP for Andreev Almagro hit the ball and it looked wide but it caught the line) and not because I tend to start the threads before they are over, I don't like that either.
I am following the lot of channels that are showing tennis. And it depends from the tournament and the broadcaster. MC for example the stream on bet fair and bet365 was faster than any TV I've checked. And the stream was behind the AMS feed 2-3 sec. Hamburg was different story, the satellite feed was just a sec or so faster then stream, and the stream was just a bit sec faster then TV's. That happens because betting sites use the the stream directly from AMS feed. For other tournaments usually the stream is slower then TV's. But never ever happened that stream or TV's are faster or even remotely close to direct raw satellite stream (if there is one of course).

Thanks, finally someone who is not trying start a quarrel.

P.S Back to the topic: which quarter do you think is the best for Nalbandian in RG draw ?
