That thread is full of nonsense and a total tards vs tards extravaganza but by calling out only Rafatards and Djokotards for being silly and blind in their defence (as you have been doing a lot latelyfor some reason) while staying totally quiet on all the utter nonsense written by others - esp. as a moderator, you're showing your bias. I can understand that sort of bias from fans and tards but a moderator should be able to smell the on both ends or just not enter the debate at all.
Lately? For SOME reason? I think we all know the reason.

How is that not Rogie being his holy self with the added bonus of a subtle dig at Rafa.
He's been doing that (not just to Rafa but to all his main opponents) for years. Gamesmanship. That's what that is. If he'd really be concerned about the rules, he'd tackle the issue in a different way.
As I said earlier, he knew what he was doing by specifically mentioning Rafa.
Let's hope Rafa will trash him in the IW semis again for this. Vamos!
Have a good weekend everyone!
Why does Federer keep talking about Rafa this days?
Rafa plays doubles just as soon as these guys finish, Cleo. Feddie talks about Rafa cause Rafa is young and cute and Feddie's not.
The azarenka match was crazy. The crowd turned against azarenka and it became a Davis cup atmosphere with the crowd cheering vika's double faults and unforced errors. Barthel got mad cheers when she lett the court. I don't know what the serve percentages were, but they had to be LOW. It wasn't a good match but the crowd made it fun with the crazy cheering.
The men must have been cursing while waiting in the locker room to get on the court. Azarenka was broken serving for the match TWO times. Last two sets went to tie breaks. Now all the air is out of the crowd and they are barely applauding the men. Doesn't help that the US team is down 1-5.
Haha I did have a quick chat with him on the last day of qualies... but he was with Ramos and Egli at the time and I didn't want to interrupt him. But that was basically the only day I really saw him. Although I wasn't actively searching for him
Actually, first time I was going to go say hi some 'random' other guys went to him first and chatted for ages. I was annoyed cos I wanted to go say hi before I left to go somewhere else... when the randoms eventually left him alone I realised one of them was Alex Corretja
Maria, I did go to Rafa's doubles match. It was fun. Rafa and Marc were reved up from the beginning. Neither of ten could be still during the pin toss. Rafa got a warning for delay, but seriously Marc would not leave h to go to the net vendors the serve -- just talking talking. After the warning Rafa appeared to be telling him to go away, and Marc walked backwards to the net talking all the way. Then after the match, Rafa told the announcer who was interviewing him while Marc stood by uninterested that Marc wanted to take the opportunity to address the crowd in ENGLISH. Marc did speak but in Spanish which a number of the crowd understood because many in so cal are bilingual but the announcer said that Marc said that he wanted to kiss all the women because they were so pretty. . As he walked off the court, Rafa was laughing and talking to the announcer enjoying their making fun of Marc.
Rafa tried to hit a ball to some fun people in the upper stands who had been waving flags and doing funny things with Pom poms but. Instead he hit the ball out of the stadium. He was embarrassed and autographed yet another ball and hit it up to the supporters. This one fell short.
The match is hazy now but as I recall Rafa had to come from behind to win the first set. Rafa looked much sharper than last year. He hit se amazing ground strokes and Marc made some nice volleys. Nenad had a tough time on serve and had at least two doubles. Rafa doubled once.

Thanks for the report, star.
I swear that I posted something about Malisse in this thread earlier. I posted something in GM but also here. Odd.
