Ana looks anorexic. It's painful to even look at her face. I wish she would cut her hair shorter to make her face seem less skinny.

Murray. For two simple reasons:

1) I would be more confident he would win a final here vs Murray than vs Fed.
2) I would much rather watch Murray win it than Fed.

I think this is Fed's last big chance to win a World Tour Finals, but I sadly don't see it happening this year.

Nobody is playing really well this week, which is annoying.

It would be a great achievement for Novak to be the one to dethrone the double-defending champion.

Covering your bases, I see. Fair enough.

And to be honest, it doesn't really matter who he beats, it's just about whether he wins or not.

They charge such huge prices for these tickets and it's SOOOOOOOO boring the way they drag it out ad infinitum.

The round robin format is cumbersome. If someone is playing horribly, we have to endure them way too long. It's an indoor tournament which automatically takes half the fun out of it. You only get to see two singles matches each day, and don't sing to me about doubles because it's clear when top singles guys play doubles they are better than the "specialists" except for maybe one or two teams. Oh yeah, and then they split the singles matches between day and night so you have to figure out what to do with all that time between matches.

I have been reading this: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthrea...441970&page=26

And I found this:



Didn't know she was once so skinny.

Also what was she thinking? traing in Wimby with her PJs?

star, going to watch the videos now.

Wow, so skinny!

That's not good at all. I hope she gets the he she deserves.

On a side note, Raquel, I'm ticking off the days until I can get rid of this avatar. Now down to 13, which is an awfully long time.

I like the doubles in WTF. The way the match play very different from singles because those are all good doubles team. And the matches are much closer than singles. Most of the matches are decided by superTB. Well, it's even closer this year because the top 2 teams are not playing their best.

This clip gives an idea. It's about slavery conditions.




This brings me to tears every time I hear it, and I have heard it many times.



Best overview of the Civil War is by Shelby Foote.
Now I want more!! Are there any movies about it? Other than Cold Mountain?
