    Well, what's there to be pro about? But since you asked, primary reason is that now that malakas has been banned, somebody has to carry the anti-Canada banner on Talk Tennis and I like to be obliging and secondary reason is that the name tar sands annoys the heck out of me. First of all, it is so not tar and it is not really a sand either... I mean, seriously.

    Also both of my parents were born and raised in Canada and I had to spend a few summers while growing up in my mom's hometown of Happy Valley. Of course, a summer only meant 2 days since that's how long summers are in Happy Valley.

    Your wee lad Milos is just like a bit of anti-bacterial cream on a gangrenous wound... I guess you're welcome to such vindication.

    I'm a wo/man of honor and would never "secretly" do anything except vote.

    That's just CBC propaganda getting to you. I was denied my right to scowl and not listen to apologies when I shopped at a hardware store while in Cambridge, ON a month and a half ago. Also, the 402 near Sarnia was totally icy and not fun.

    I found it annoying during the week as well. Rather have a consistent stream that's medium quality than all the troubles associated with Veetle. It was also always behind actual play. Glad to have the last few matches on TV.

    Milos loosening up now it seems.

    Fantastic avatar. Too bad about the low quality restrictions on this board.

    Just a work of art.
    Beautiful. I'm getting a bit misty-eyed here.

    Verdasco looking fresh as a daisy out there. Sporting the pink sex t-shirt, probably decided to play this match in 3 just to stay on court as much as possible and please the insatiable eyes of the latinas that he and Lalo often gangbangs in the suburbs of Madrid, we could see some low/waist Vamos's in this one.

    Raonic to win 4 slams, according to the prediction of Veetle commentator. Agree or disagree?

    Ya I had done that before...ocassionally Veetle finds away to turn off the stream and says it offline! At least the stream is nice and it feels like you are actually there!

    LOL the Commentators are hyping Milos too much...3-5 slams...I mean one is enough!

    That's not happening where I am. It's probably not a quality level setting, but HD doesn't work for me.

    This commentator is a complete moron. Did they just grab some random spectator and put him in?
