    You've heard it here first. Fed is tired and won't win. Murray will crack under the pressure. Djokovic loses to Tsonga next round.

    It is written.

    Tsonga is practically Nadal's slightly inferior replacement at the moment.

    Rod Laver has about as many chances of taking this as Tsonga. My money is on Djoker. He has a lot of emotional stock invested on this because he's fighting for Serbia.

    I think Tsonga will beat Joker. He almost beat him at the French and he's playing great on grass these days.

    I highly doubt it. Tsonga is too big of a headcase to beat someone like Cvac. Plus,Cvac is too tough to put away,and Tsonga is far from the man to do the job.

    Lol :) Tsonga may still get the gold in doubles. Fed has reserved his gold medal since before the event started I'm afraid :neutral:

    LOL, what a prediction! How did that work out for you? ;)

    When will Tsonga fans realize that he will never win a grand slam, gold medal or any other big event. He is too inconsistent and screws up in big match moments. For Tsonga to win a grand slam or gold medal, Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray would have to all be hit by a bus and even if they were, I am still not sure Tsonga would pull through and get the big win. He is just not in that same league.

    I was actually talking about Djokovic.

    BTW, great avatar. Eraserhead still creeps me out.

    Not seen Eraserhead but if it's anything like Blue Velvet?!
    David Lynch must be a disturbed guy but a great film director.

    No. Actually the one thing about all David Lynch movies is that they are very different from each other (if equally surrealistic). Eraserhead is completely unique in its feel. Filmed in black and white with a very small cast against the backdrop of an industrialized post apocalyptic society, I think it's the movie from Lynch which emanates a more urgent sense of desperation and madness (which is saying a lot).

    So Lynch was fighting madness?
    Or is it just that he sees the world for what it truly is?
    And sane people are actually deluded and mad but the illusion of reality is what makes them think they are sane?

    France capitulates everything. And don't you forget it.

    Yes, indeed. The idea is not original but continues to be intriguing. Life and human beings' stint on Earth is surrealistic any way you look at it.

    That is an exaggeration. Some people forget Napoleonic France was one of the mightiest military empires Europe (and the world) ever saw. Also, France helped the Revolutionary cause in the American Civil War.

    People like giving France a tough time for WW II, and although I agree they could have fought a tougher fight, the Germans were unstoppable at that point. So maybe they capitulated because they foresaw it would be a better decision in the long run (if not as honorable).

    Don't take me wrong, I'd never do what the French did, but I see how somebody might decide to do that.

    Remember this when China invades the U.S. We are going up a shyt creek without a paddle.

    How does China compete with 2nd rate 1980 tech Russian military equipment and a navy 50x smaller. Large infantry numbers dont matter in modern day. Once Air superiority is gained its game over pretty much for the other side.

    Actually he doesn't care for Serbia as much as he talks about it. Being a resident of Monaco he deosn't pay a brass farthing to his best beloved motherland. That's a strange variety of love IMO.

    China doesn't need military superiority; it figured out long ago that economic superiority was the way forward. Largest owner of U.S. debt, biggest U.S. trade surplus, and a control of their currency which allows them to manipulate the global markets to whatever ends they want.

    Socialists beating the capitalists at their own game. Gotta love a plot with a twist... ;)

    The thread died after Fed didn't tire, Murray didn't crack under pressure, Djokovic didn't lose and Tsonga did not make the next round, and gold.
    Unless you want to be cruel and rub Nadalgaenger's nose in it, then there's not much point in discussing the subject further.

    So we decided to discuss history, art and philosophy instead.
