    I guess he must've appealed and got his 8 month ban reduced to 7 months and 3 weeks.

    This is weird thread. But I kinda like it. Vamos Ralph.

    interesting that great minds think alike, no? quote (on the vid cover) from john mcEnroe:

    "This is the greatest match I've ever seen."

    Your favorite players are Nadal, Rod and Isner? :shock: Because they're all ace machines, I suppose? :)

    The same could be said for this board if you stopped polluting it.

    I sure miss the butt picking, the touching of nose, touching each ear before every serve. I also miss the Super Bowl celebrations after he wins a point.
    Maybe not

    see? the AO even used Rafa's likeness on the virtual cover of their virtual online ticket guide ..... b/c they knew that the anticipation of seeing Rafa play would help sell more tickets ... no?

    That doesn't surprise me at all.

    I'm sure that's helping the Golden Swing bidding war as well -- everybody in South America is dying to see Rafa play.

    Also, great picture. :)

    For sure! First the Brasil Open gave him a wild card, then they made him the No. 1 seed, leaving defending champion Almagro in second place! :eek: :D

    OMG. I didn't know they gave him the number one seed. *dies*
    :shock:

    Coach Juanqui must be pitching a fit right about now.
    Either that or he's plotting how to get his underdog to the final to triumph. No wonder Nico is looking so lean and mean.

    (Did I tell you I saw him running cooldown laps after his match with Johnny Isner at that exho in Miami? I was like "Okay, podperson, who are you and what have you done with Nico?")

    LOL ... guess that means he's lookin' yummy!
    I've been so out of it that I didnt even notice about the exho ... so who won that match?

    Yeah that seeding thing during the South American Swing was, to say the least, unusual ... nothing exoting at Inian Wells ... Rafa's currently world no. 5 in the rankings and is seeded no. 5

    Nico's seeded no. 11 ... Isner seeded no. 15

    Rafa will no doubt receive his usual hero's cheering section! :D

    Still, mostly laugh lines there, I think :)
