    I just realized that I have been posting on this forum for almost a decade. It began by reading posts about strings years before joining, soon followed by spiraling into the Odds & Ends vortex, and then stabilizing with mostly posting useless information.

    I once envisioned the great and always brilliant Dedans Penthouse as a probable dentist, posting during nitrous oxide breaks between patients. SoBad was a student at one of those D.C. area schools in a bad neighborhood, with a strange apartment view of urban blight, and now he travels the world in the service of an unidentified intelligence agency, gathering information for yet to be determined purposes.

    Stringertom is a consistently witty poster, and I wonder what became of Sentinel's friendships with stray dogs. This forum is actually much stranger than I initially anticipated.

    I once tripped over a drunk fallen Swede somewhere late into a cold Copenhagen night. His girlfriend helped me up.

    Still very much alive and kicking. They are the only friends I have apart from the humans in the O&E section here.

    I've been here for a decade too. Was searching for a new tennis racket in 2007 and then joined in 2008.

    Isn't "tennis balls" what Sureshs calls what happens when he has been playing all day in the sun? If so, I wish Cibulkova good luck.

    @SoBad is a master of disguise...on Mondays he might be Clooney like but by the next day he'll morph into The Worm. Either way, it's Swoon City for the lasses when he shows his Rasputian assets.

    @SoBad gets upset when TSA raids his makeup kit during their "inspections" so don't expect that level of morphing until days after his repatriation to his Brighton Beach enclave above his local Sally's Beauty Supplies store.

    Maria Kirilenko use to deliberately break strings and personally bring the racquet to the stringing room, hoping that Stringertom would be there.

    Obradovic: Djokovic is in the phase of experimentation

    J. Jevremović | 16 March 2017 20:45 | Comments: 17

    Not Kirjos best server on tour, Novak ritern weakened.Schedule does not want to comment - Novak knows that the problem is much deeper, says until recently the coach of Serbia

    Novak Djokovic Photo Tanjug

    RELATED CONSCIENCE

    Djokovic: I accept the criticism, but constructive

    Relief: Bogdanović slightly injured

    FRIGHTENING EVENING FOR SERBS: Bjelica finished, Bogdanović hurt the same ankle!

    Djokovic string had to be interrupted

    Djokovic and Troicki PALI U DUBLU Sixth holders Klasen and Ram too strong for Serbs

    RELATED TOPICS

    LIKE boy who comes undone on the board to match the Pythagoras theorem, Djokovic head bowed looking at 39 strokes Kirjosa as in the previous two clashes. In the four sets did not have any break opportunity, a "reading" angles service was like solving problems with the sine and cosine for elementary school students.


    Helpless look which accompanied the balls of the over 200 kilometers per hour, reach all the way up to the coaching staff, where again there was Marijan Vajda, a ritern the second consecutive defeat of the Australians (4: 6, 6: 7) is the clearest reflection of the strongest weapons that from the period of domination now act as threats empty rifle.


    Novak once had an impenetrable body armor burst for services Isner, Karlovic, Raonic, and the force of the projectile used to restore even faster winner in the field rival. In the quarterfinals Acapulco, and last finals at Indian Wells, Kirjos with full control in their service games over the myth of transformation Serb from defense to attack, as they do football players of Barcelona.


    - I could not "read" his services that went 220 kilometers per hour, the "T" line or in width, at a right angle. It is hard to position itself for something - not Djokovic had a solution to the equation with 14 unknown knocks at Indian Wells, and 25 in Acapulco.


    Pol ANAKON, Federer's former coach, has reduced all the theories on the key points:


    - Novak misses riterne that normally does not miss. Sure winner he finished a few inches in the car instead of the field, because there is no one with his mental strength. Also, it works much more depressing when you happen to him, there is no determination in his game.


    Djokovic will not scroll through the "New York Times" looking for expert advice. One such is more relieved, believing that it is no longer needed. What Beker or any coach can still learn a multiple Grand Slam champion?Perhaps Federer and Ljubicic had an interesting answer to this question.


    Novak has not done a good homework after Acapulco. He did not have anyone to do when the first coach Marian Vajda given days off for the first masters of the season, a Slovak probably will not be in Miami. Vemić did have one of the strongest service at the Tour, but it did not help much five-time champion at Indian Wells, who has won only six of 42 points on first serve it.


    - I do not think Kirjos best server on tour. There are far better, so it is received Nole years without problems. Djokovic ritern is just one of the elements in a game that is no longer on that lethal level of the previous season - believes Bogdan Obradovic.


    Former Davis Cup team Serbia is the favorite interlocutor domestic media on the subject of meat, guru, reiki method or push lean meet under Novak's nose does not guarantee success if the problem is deeper. No cross with Hilandara neck did not return a halo of invincibility around the head.


    - These are all factors that have little impact on his game.There's a little bit of everything, but the fact is that Djokovic is in the phase of experimentation. Many of the changes were about him, Beker is gone, Vajda is less present. Dule Vemić certainly has an important role, was with him last year when he won the US Masters. But Marijan has to be here to bring stability. In some segments of the preparation matches, Slovak is an important factor - says Obradovic.


    One of the experiments was to Troicki and doubles (defeated by Rama and KLAS in the quarter - 3: 6, 6: 2, 10: 6). Pastime with good friends and a little practice on volleyed not hurt, but the question is how many jump hand to hand with Victor gave a much took power counsel titles in singles. For 24 hours he had to play three matches, and 50 degrees in the desert and cactus hard.


    Take into account factors such as heat, hellish schedule and the draw is not serious, because the champion Novak of the day have been no problem to play two singles in 17 hours.


    - Schedule does not want to comment - Novak knows that the problem is much deeper - added Obradović.

    1978, London, U.K. – The assassination of Georgi Markov

    Bulgarian writer and political dissident Georgi Markov, while walking along the Waterloo Bridge on his way to a job with the BBC. The murder weapon was later determined to be umbrella that fired a ricin pellet into Markov’s leg. In 2008, The Telegraph reported that counter-terrorism experts had reopened the investigation into the death of Markov. The assassination was carried out by Bulgarian Secret Service working with the KGB.

    1981, Virginia, U.S. – Attempted assassination of Boris Korczak

    Boris Korczak, a former CIA agent, was shot with a ricin pellet while shopping at Giant Food Store in Vienna, Virginia, but survived the assassination attempt. According to claims on Korczak’s personal website, the KGB was behind the attempt as Korsczak had previously infiltrated the Soviet organization.
    http://globalnews.ca/news/488686/the-deadly-history-of-ricin/

    I was at that Giant Food Store (at Tysons Corner) when I was a kid, but I never injected anyone with a ricin pellet.
