Re: Wimbledon R1: Steve Darcis def.  Rafael Nadal 7-6 7-6 6-4
A routine win for the Belgian He played a decent match, hit some big forehands, and was clutch at net.
A good performance from the inexperienced Spaniard. He will have to work on his grasscourt skills though if he wants to be a top te4nnis player in the coming years.

The only way something can have no consequences is if it has no effect. The only way something can have no effect is if it doesn't exist. It's completely paradoxical, therefore, to claim that something can exist and simultaneously have no effect.
People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.
