general miura was at the top of his game today but he usually is.

we also have shankar in the castle today. he is a big fan of the clay monster. and Manuel is around also.

the mack attack is back also. he had been working out in the gym somewhere.
Are you religious?

Can't believe we're on the new thread already. Awesome time in the CASTLE..

well done with the v action. i also managed to get a few right for a change.

i really should have put some big v cash on Santoro. didnt realize that Kendrick is such a clown. thought he might come through with his rocket serve on grass.

Wow, me too, I was nervous about that one too. I ended up 5 for 5 today and had cash on Zverev, but saw it was Abandoned. What happened ?? Can't find anything on the web site yet, but still looking. Just had to restart to install some new software..

You?
I still haven't wrapped my brain around the "official GOAT" thing.
Luckily, there's always Gilles and his amazing Rd1 losses to keep me frustrated and with my fangirl feet firm on the ground.

I'm starting to feel a little nervous about Wimbledon already, it seams to me he might be a little too high on the FO coming into it...
Also, I feel a little bad for ROB. I don't know how right I am(hopefully not), but I just feel that this year's AO was his career's high-point and there's nowhere else but down from there. Poor thing, imagine having chronic pains at the age of 23.

will make sure to check this one out, thanks Maya

if you like this genre of music you might as well love some Uzbek songs as well, they don't sound much different
I think I would, yes, I LOVE traditional near eastern music, a lot!
The older and more stripped down to basics, the better. Also I am a huge fan of near eastern styles of dance, and they go together, so it makes for a wonderful fusion of senses, I love the approach to music they have in that part of the world.


I'll be off now, so let me do a short Muller picspam, since I'm on topic...


This is how bad things are with getting a decent Muller pic. If I had a close-up of that, it would have been a beautiful pic.(Gilles on the left, opposite Nishikori)



Crosscourt.


This is to show how mean and intimidating he can look.
I have it saved under but I love him anyway.



Hugz(w/ Mucho)



And this is meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeow7.


Hopefully I'll see more of that.

I read Also Sprach Zarathustra in German. Very interesting book.

CONGRATULATIONS !! Good bet on Santoro, I knew I should have bet on him..

Do you know what happened in the Zverev match. It shows on vcash as abandoned, but I can't find anything about it on the wedsite, and their "live" scoreboard doesn't even show all the matches on the Today's Results tab. Has to be the worst updated site ever.
Draw sheet is way behind too.

I've always admired tennis, and I've played it since a young age (though I suck at it, Blaze-2004 can confirm that).

One day my uncle told me to turn on ESPN and it was Nadal vs Federer the Miami final, after watching that I became a Nadal follower.

Since then I've learned to like many players including Blake, Hewitt, Tsonga, Youhnzy and many others.

I never understood why liking Federer or Nadal automatically makes you "hate" the other in this site. It's not like they are teams, they are just players.

I certainly admire Federer's record, but I think Nadal is more fun to watch. Why the success of one player ought to bother me, I don't know.

Anyway, enough about me, which are your favorite players?
Nice. I do secretly enjoy Nadal's matches every now and again too. Not a big fan of his game, but the intensity and competitiveness he brings to court is enough to keep it exciting for me.

I have loads of faves, but Fed first and foremost. He was my first tennis love as it were, and the first full match I saw of him was his loss against Timmy Henman in Wimby 01. I had seen those last 2 sets of the Sampras match before that and I was rooting for Fed as my brother was all for Pete, and you know how it goes with sibling rivalry. / Wasn't a big tennis fan back then though, only watched slams as that was the only thing shown on TV back in Sweden (where I was born and raised up).

I have a thing for all Swiss guys it seems, it does help that all have beautiful single handers: Wawrinka and Marco Chiudinelli.

Massive fan of Gasquet (), Mario Ancic (), Jeremy Chardy, Nalbandian (), Marcos Baghdatis, Tsonga, PHM, Santoro (), Pico (on clay only ). I have a soft spot for Blake as well, I don't know why. And I genuinely am a fan of Alex Bogdanovic.

OK I'll stop there before this turns into an essay, but this is by no means my complete list.
