    By far the funniest post, even though I've backed his opponent in the prediction league, if Paire wins, I'll think of your post and it will hurt a lot less :)

    Reminds me of when "Fresh Fields" Brit sitcom transposed to "French Fields" or when my dad went to a French hardware shop and gestured for a shower curtain by miming as a bather and rubbing his underarms...it worked!

    I swear I am the Brit equivalent to marcel Marceau given my ability to mime nearly every action......altho it's a technique that can lead to ...errrr..... Misinterpretation :)

    No, it was the left one that resembled a breadstick and the right one looking like a bagel. Either way, that kind of baggage in your drawers WILL produce a bit of friction!

    Still need a pick from mkim823. You can still choose from the Fed/Jerzy match.

    What an embarrassment...I'm not even waiting for the end to update the spreadsheet. Congratulations to the 5 winners of Rome!

    After a break of one week, we'll be back for Roland Garros!

    I think this is my first title... Really bittersweet though, because I was really pulling for Rog :(

    Knock me over with a feather...no way I'm in the top 10 for the race??? I thought I sucked at this game unless it was played @Flushing!:)

    Congrats to the four champs! I could have been one of five if I had "bet" with my head instead of my heart...still happy for Rogi; it was a much better week for him than I expected.
