    I sat in WLo yesterday and my exact notes were:

    (Original post by my notes)
    I must concentrate in WLO.
    I must concentrate in WLO.
    I must concentrate in WLO.
    I must concentrate in WLO.
    I must concentrate in WLO.
    I must concentrate in WLO.

    Things I have learnt in WLO today:

    1) The periodic table.
    2) MR= P - a/E > 1
    there's no point attending if it's the first or last lecture of the day.

    Arif Jamal called me Austin's reincarnat last tutorial. I love him.
    I dont know who Mr Lewis thinks he is to dismiss UCL's first professor of jurisprudence and the guy who invented jogging.

    This guy deserves to win this competition, I've said it before that only him could give Federer a good match in the final because he's got the hunger.

    Call me a cynic but i hope this isnt a Puerta-esque repetition re: Baghdatis.

    You just never quite know, also athletes as proven, can take drugs unknowingly.

    But wasn't Puerta 27 at last years Roland Garros final?, plus he also tested positive 2 years earlier.

    Considering Baghdatis's age, 20, I think the only substance behind his drive is adrenaline.

    Ok...but understandably so, there will be cynicism. It's been a huge sudden leap for Baghdatis. You surely concur with this? Ok..he's young, feeling fresh, but these arent valid reasons for why he simply wouldnt take drugs, knowingly or the anti-thesis - that's just not a valid argument.

    I understand those arn't valid reasons against drug taking, the only solid proof is a drug test. I'm not sure how these things work but will he have to give a sample after the final?

    People are aware that there are some Tennis players who take performance enhancing drugs but another thing that's well known is players who take competition by storm. Ivanisevic at Wimbledon in 2001 for example.
    It may be a sudden leap but he's been in form since October 05, beating the likes of Hass and Nalbandian in Basel.

    If he took anything we'll hear about it but in the meanwhile, people should appreciate how well he's done so far.

    Yes, Puerta was asked for sample after his final in French Open 2005...just as rowers are asked for samples at the Olympics, i.e. Pinsent following on from winning gold @ Athens. Of course, people will abuse me for cynicism but it does happen, Puerta is proof of it. I just hope drugs aren't involved, and if unknowingly consumed, like Alain Baxter Bronze medal taken away after winter-olympics in 2002...thats very sad, unfortunate and has my sympathy to a degree...but of course athletes have to be aware and alert of what they are consuming, whether a new food/drink or old and regular product.

    Im from Reading and Burnsie's death was harldy mentioned at all in the local press....Reading chronicle only had about 2 lines.....i find it completly scandolous that somebody who achieved as much as he did hardly got any mention in the paper where he was from. Im big into the WRC,my dad used to go rallying in the 70's and ive grown up loving it, i knew Richard had been ill for a long time and the signs wernt good but even i was very shocked to here of his untimley death at such a young age, we'll miss ya Richard...i think a statue in broad street would be a fitting tribute to England (and Readings) only rally world champion.
