    WTF draws

    Because I am bored and nervous :)

    Rafitos possible draws:


    Nadal, Novak,Murray,Roddick
    Nadal, Novak, Murray, Ferrer
    Nadal, Novak, Berdy, Roddick
    Nadal, Novak, Berdy, Ferrer
    Nadal, Soderling, Murray, Roddick
    Nadal, Soderling, Murray, Ferrer
    Nadal Soderling, Berdy, Roddick
    Nadal Soderling, Berdy, Ferrer

    having a Novak/Murray and even Murray/Soderling combo, is gonna SUCK. :(

    LOL@ you sig, what a d0uche.

    Yes, ideal draw as well, until you get ppl whining about how Rafa really doesn't deserve to be in the semis, cuz of an easy draw.

    Murray at number 5 is no good news. Last time it happened, it was just before the AO. I thought "who is the poor top guy (Nadal, Federer, Djokovic) who will get Murray in his quarter?". It was Rafa. :(

    Rafa can sometimes stay at those bars until 5am or later, and his friend owns the place so he can pretty much do what he wants. lol and I think just because we don't see Xisca in pictures it doesn't mean she's not there.

    the "gay" looking blonde guy you're talking about is Rafa's friend Juan...i'm not going to lie i've had my suspicions about him too :oops: but the one in the middle is not gay.



    News tid bit-draw is out tomorrow.

    ^^It was meant to be a joke. :lol: I thought Federer would have been more light hearted about the exo guess not. He missed Rafa eh?

    Murray isn't up to par, Federer doesn't seem to be up to par either, Rafa beat soderling and Novak this year so he can take confidence from that....aw Rafa vamos chico this has to be your year!!!!![​IMG]

    He's going to do well, I can feel it! :) He's motivated to improve on the results last year, he's got the bigger serve and he is going to be the one of the fresher guys there. The magic combination for nadal and hard courts. :) Vamos.

    Gasp. Loving all these digs at Federer. RITG will be disappointed. He believed in respecting all players.

    Yes, that's what I was thinking when I saw that footage, that's Federer for you, even his light-hearted comedy is pompous....

    Yes it seems like all the stars are aligned, I like his pool, he's got Berdych, Djokovic, Roddick. Rafa has won 7 straight matches over Berdych (including 3 hardcourt) and all in straight sets :D, and I don't think Roddick is playing well enough to beat Rafa. So if he takes care of Djokovic he could actually go undefeated in the round robin :D

    Not my ideal group (I would have chosen Soderling, Berdych and Ferrer), but it could be worse.

    of the Exo they were playing for Federer's Foundation! It wasn't an out-take...it was part of the commercial.

    Soderling is the most recent winner, so I'm glad we got Djokovic instead. And even though Ferrer is the easiest opponent, I really want to see Roddick vs Rafa, it's a great matchup because of such contrast.

    It would have been better with Pics instead of Roddick.

    fingers crossed



    I agree. I still dunno about him opening with Roddick tho. It might have been better if he opened with Berdy.

    Rafa has to eventually reach a YEC final, no? Which year, who knows. All the 6+ slam winners of the open era reached at least a final of the YEC, including Wilander who is the only 6+ slam winner together with Nadal to never win a YEC.
