Agreed that he needs to go fishing, see the family and friends, and go to the cinema -- Perhaps Iron Man .

Now for MIT, repeat after me:

I will not underestimate Rafa again.
I will not underestimate Rafa again.
I will not underestimate Rafa again.

I'll write this 100 more times

Metis, I'm going for the big, cry inducing, clay rolling, Borg matching

Thread title change please! The last time I (unwisely) gave a positive thread name he tanked 1st match

I will wait until the draw to give my prediction

But it won't be Winner.

No need to wait for the draw ... Please, Metis, put me down for the win. Besides from Thursday I shall be traveling not returning after Nadal has finished his first RG match. The crystal ball is clear on this prediction and I don't want to miss 200 MIT points :-)
Hopefully, Djoker will fall in Federer's side of the draw and he will help Nadal get closer to #1
