In Finnish it's "to make a bull/ox out of mosquito", but that's just bc it sounds better in Finnish than the elephant I think.

I was trying to learn it at one point I actually started two times but both times I abandoned it... I guess it was too hard. I should start again, I really want to learn it, I think it's a fascinating language

He sporadically posts in this thread and in the vbetting thread. He's actually an all right guy but for his JM-bashing.

I actually don't mind it. I'm a Rafa fan first and foremost, but Federer's weeping during the AO trophy presentation was and still is pretty damn compelling. Federer is definitely a never-let-them-see-you-bleed sort of guy--which is commendable--so that AO meltdown was very noteworthy in my book.

Fed's kept such a low profile these last few weeks, and the episode is understandably still on everyone's minds. I don't blame them for asking Rafa the odd question on the matter--even if Rafa's WTF response was expected. Hopefully the media grills the hell out of Rogelio during IW and we get some classic responses.

Jesus Christ. What time is it?

The Dutch DC team received a ton of criticism after this weekend (unprofessional,...)

Apparently, Krajicek advised the Dutch players to go to Spain in order to get tougher.

Jesse Huta Galung seems to get annoyed with all those former pros giving advice to the new generation because he figures that things have changed sinced they were at the top.

Finnish is a beautiful language apparently (but I don't get to hear it often). Isn't that the language Tolkien based his elvish language on?
