When is Rafito playing. I expect a full SB transmition
Rafito is playing the evening session, starting 19.30 CET.
Although the Italians don't seem to be in good shape lately we all remember the Seppigate from last year.

Rafa is playing at 19:30h this evening.


Janet Evanovich...IIRC, dr. Sue mentioned that she's a good friend of her husband. I've read every book of hers and I usually can't wait until she brings out the next Stephanie Plum book.

According to Dutch tv, the Rafa-mania there is overwhelming with lots of people throwing themselves at him, wanting something from him, pushing, shoving....with a very calm but tired looking Rafa in the middle of all that.
Or...to use the words of the guy on NOS tv: "he gets neither hot nor cold from all the fuss around him."

Quite a few of the local journalists have commented that he's taking the pressure of being the number one with aplomb.

Yesterday, they showed a bit where he's playing with a wheelchair tennis champion (I think that it's something the sponsor wanted). The girl had brought a second wheelchair for him to play in but Rafa said "it's too difficult"...*girl chuckles* with Rafa probably realising how daft that sounds because he added: "she's a pro"...(the commentator said: "he really doesn't like to lose").

It's the first time the ABN AMRO tournament also has a wheelchair tennis event and the sparring with Rafa was a promo effort to draw attention to it.
She added that Tommy Robredo is interested in organizing a wheelchair tennis event as well.


I think that Richard Krajicek is going to have a fit if Rafa drops out early. The amount of ass-kissing from Richard is amazing.

The media reporting about this event is great. I remember some nice reportages last year and this year I already saw some equally good.

And while I'm busy giving info nobody is interested in probably......next book is the latest Val McDermid. (she has a very dark style so I'll be going from one extreme to the other).

I've heard of Stephen King but I've never read any of his books. I'm not very interested in that genre. I don't know the other authors you mentioned; what do they write about?

Edit: Does anybody in here sometimes read the talk tennis forum? I don't do it often but that place is an odd mixture. More people who actually play tennis seem to post there (which can be good fun to read but on the other hand, a lot of them consider themselves as total experts just because they know which way to hold their tennis racquet) but it's mostly tard-paradise.
Is that the tennis warehouse forum? I don't really have time to visit other forums so I can't say.

For their sake I hope he reaches the QF at least.

It sounds like he's too tired (mentally) to get excited by all the craziness. He probably wishes he had a 3-week break in Mallorca.

Janet Evanovic's Stephanie Plum series is about a female bounty hunter and it's a comedy: wild, crazy, looney, but fun.

Val McDermid is a crime author (serial killers, lots of tormented souls..): very dark.

Yup. I usually stay away from there but sometimes, it's fun to venture over there but you have to take that forum in very small dosages because it's
