    Someone on the boards confirmed it as painkillers.

    I guess he must be hurting with all those matches he played on top of his qualifying. Plus 3 sets most of them.

    I saw Jerzy when he was in DC for Legg Mason. In fact I ran into him and his coach while they were walking to Rosslyn from his hotel. Anyway, I also saw him and his coach playing ping pong tennis at LM, like this.

    This is Nole and Andy playing ping pong tennis.

    Ferrer now joins a select list of 7 players who have won their first and only Masters title in Paris (since the official start of the Masters series in 1990):

    1998 Greg Rusedski
    2001 Sebastien Grosjean
    2003 Tim Henman
    2005 Tomas Berdych
    2008 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
    2010 Robin Soderling
    2012 David Ferrer

    Ferrer also becomes the first ever Spanish player to win the title at Paris-Bercy!

    Interesting. Paris really appears like the "rogue" master out there. Always the most unpredictable outcome.

    This would have been an unbelivable tourniment if ferrer had twisted his ankle in the 2nd round, shame. :(

    Who here remembers Juan Ma Del Pony? His/her vile and absolute hatred for Roger Federer always brought a smile to my face. Let's hope this lost board member returns to our shores soon enough.

    Please no, worst poster ever.

    I almost wanted Delpo to start losing so she would go away. I call it the Nadal fan effect.

    I think she was a copy of a Kvitova fan on these forums.

    It was fun trying to guess why this thread had been bumped before I clicked on it. I thought maybe it was someone making for plans for JJ to be in the Final of the French.

    He does like Paris...finalist @Bercy and junior finalist @RG. Maybe he's a big Bogie/Bergman fan!
