    5/10 so far, and one of them was a shocker: Tipsarevic actually won a match!
    Oh Tipsy. I remember when he was ranked #8... where is he now? Who do we think is going to make the Race for London? Where do you think Roger will end up? :/

    If Fognini really did what the internet says he did; purposely foot faulting on MP against Stepanek as they kept on giving him footfaults that is just crazy

    Horrible day for me on the ATP fantasy, Baker performed better than I expected and Fish didn't, also forgot to pick qualifier matches. At least my man Tipsy Finally won a match. Also does not seem like Nadals pulling out so that is great news

    Race for London seems to be the usual suspects so far, although Tsonga hasn't played since Wimbledon I think? What happened?

    Janowicz don't do this to me, we had a deal. you would live up to your potential, fire some crazy serves hit ferocious forehands and then then suprise me with a delicate volley give me that cute smile and in exchange you would be in contention to becoming my favourite youngster ahead of Tomic.


    If this relationship is to work you have to make me not regret the trust I place in you

    phone conversation between Fed and Nole a day before Montreal starts:

    Nole: Hey Fed, what's up?..

    Fed: hey djokester! I'm about to board my private jet, I'm playing Montreal you know..

    Nole: great! I've been here for a week now, practicing hard and I'm enjoying the media attention too..

    Fed: haven't seen the line-up yet but, are there good players participating this year?..

    Nole: the usual suspects, you know how it is. DelPo is here, Murray too, Raonic and Jerzy and oh, Rafa has decided to show up....

    Fed: RAFA's there? He told me he wouldn't make it...

    Nole: what time are you arriving at the airport, if you want, I'll pick you up...

    (long silence)

    Nole: Fed? are you still there?...

    Fed: yeah yeah I'm still here uhmmmm...

    Nole: shall I pick you up at the airport?...

    Fed: you know what...uhmm I forgot my golden bag... I'm not gonna make it to the tournament after all.

    Nole: don't worry about the bag, I'll get you a new one..

    (long silence)

    Nole: hello Fed?

    Fed: yes, still here..

    Nole: well? shall I pick you up?

    Fed: you know what, maybe I should stay at home because Mirka told me I never help her with the kids. Can you believe that woman? So I should probably skip this tournament.

    Nole: admit it man..

    Fed: admit what?..

    Nole: you're afraid to become the first to be beaten 21 times by Rafa..

    Fed: c'mon man, I need to see my kids...

    Nole: whatever. you're scared. anyway, talk to you later after I've beaten Rafa...

    Fed: hey good luck!..

    (after the semifinal, Fed calls Novak)

    Nole: hello, Rog...You know you were scheduled to play Rafa in the quarterfinals right?..

    Fed: so everyone has a huge record now. Mine is 17 majors, Rafa has 9 consecutive years and you are the first man to be beaten 21 times by Rafa. hahhahahah bye!


    Nole: hello, hello??

    Lol, it's funny but I don't think it makes much sense considering that Montreal wasn't played on clay/slow HC but on faster HCs. Federer would happily play Nadal there, infact he would play him anywhere. He isn't a coward.

    Tipsy is world No. 18 at the moment - what a fall from grace he's had over the last year or so.

    I just can't predict who will end up at the Tour Finals, it's been an odd season so far (hopefully Roger stays at No. 5 or maybe even pushes for No. 4)

    That is unlucky - the Montreal/Cincinnati and Madrid/Rome turnovers are pretty quick, so it's best to try and fit in all your picks on a Saturday.

    I'm a little annoyed that Gulbis has gone out to Youzhny - I picked Murray to lose in R2 to him, but he will beat Youzhny with ease and probably mess up the bottom half of the draw for me if he does really well.

    Never bet on Murray to beat someone with ease. :laugh:

    With Gulbis out early it means he won't be seeded which means he will be a very dangerous floater in the early rounds. Pospisil vs Goffin is actually happening!!!!! really hope it is on one of the televised courts

    To be fair he has only had unexpected losses to decent players ie mahut on grass, gulbis, janowciz, raonic and i guess chardy in the last year or so.

    I somewhat agreed with your joke. Maybe with the exception of Federer nowadays, Murray is the most unpredictable player in terms of performance in the top 4. The game gets controlled by the other too often.

    Murray looking better today than against Gulbis, although Youzhny is contributing a large amount of UE.
