Btw I guess that the commentator is Heinz Günthardt former professional atp player (best #8, RG double winner) and also former coach of Steffi Graf....
Happy belated Anniversary Stella and Jim! We had our 25th Anniversary on October 21st last year. My parents made it to 62 years. Both died almost two years ago. My father at 93 and my mother 5 month later at 91. The End.
At 2:23 Federer sends a kiss to Andy or does he roll over his false teeth?

Congrats DEAR M from the Great City of New York! No? Pues a ver como Rafa defiende sus puntos en el 2014! Hehe. All the best M!
Happy belated Birthday Raj! I hope I can make it to 75!
On the left : Mutant Alien Rafa aka Resident Evil. No words. Somewhat shocking. The Joker looks really great even in defeat. He looks like the real winner to me.
Just learnt that the shop assistant was Italian and not Swiss! LOL. In 2008 Oprah Winfrey was named PETA person of the year PETA is an animal rights organisation and five years later Oprah-di Oprah-da wants to buy a croc-bag! Shame on you Oprah! LOL. ;-) The shop assistant did a great job in not showing her the $38'000 bag! :-) A perfect bag for Oprah Winfrey would be this one:;jsessionid=192229C6EDF11A9D1AAB62FF23BC3C46
Viktor Troicki banned for 18 months for failing to provide blood sample • Serbian violated tennis anti-doping programme • Troicki asked to be excused test as he felt unwell The Serbian tennis player Viktor Troicki has been banned for 18 months for a violation of the tennis anti-doping programme, the International Tennis Federation has announced. Troicki, 27, failed to provide a blood sample when requested during in-competition testing at the Monte Carlo Masters on 15 April. He said he had asked permission to be excused the blood test due to feeling unwell but that explanation was rejected by the governing body. His suspension begins immediately and will end on 24 January 2015. Troicki must also forfeit all prize money and ranking points earned at the Monte Carlo Masters. He told a news conference on Thursday that "this is the toughest moment of my career and of my life" and added: "I am innocent. I have never ever taken any prohibited substance or ever thought of doing so. I did not lie and this really hurts." An ITF statement read: "Viktor Troicki has been found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation under article 2.3 of the tennis anti-doping programme (refusing or failing without compelling justification to submit to sample collection). "Mr Troicki, a 27-year-old player from Serbia, was notified on 15 April 2013 that he had been selected to provide a urine sample and a blood sample in association with his participation at the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters event. "Mr Troicki provided a urine sample but did not provide a blood sample. "He asserted to an independent tribunal that he was assured by the doping control officer (DCO) that it would be acceptable not to provide a sample on account of him feeling unwell that day. "However, the tribunal concluded that the DCO told Mr Troicki that she could not advise him as to whether his reason for not providing a blood sample was valid, and that no such assurances were given by her. "Accordingly the tribunal determined that Mr Troicki's actions constituted a failure and a refusal to provide a blood sample, and that his explanation for not doing so did not constitute compelling justification under article 2.3. "However, the tribunal accepted that the stress that Mr Troicki was under at the time entitled him to mitigation under article 10.5.2." Troicki has the right to appeal against the ruling to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, according to the ITF. Troicki, ranked 53 in the world, was in action hours before the ITF announcement, losing 6-0, 6-4 to Spain's Tommy Robredo in the second round of the Croatia Open in Umag. The powerful right-hander from Belgrade is a one-time winner on the ATP Tour, in Moscow's Kremlin Cup in 2010, and was a key part of Serbia's victorious Davis Cup team in the same year, winning the fifth and decisive rubber over France's Michaël Llodra. He has not reached an ATP final since October 2011, when he lost in Moscow against Janko Tipsarevic. Troicki becomes the fifth professional to serve a doping suspension in 2013 after Filippo Calorosi, Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, Dimitar Kutrovsky and Fernando Romboli. source: Does anybody know how many milliliters of blood is necessary for a blood test? I guess not more than 5ml? Isn't that a stupid excuse. In a car accident the police doesn't ask if you feel unwell... No sample was taken and we will never know if he was on drugs.

Sorry chipnputt, TP started his site in February (?) 2006! :-) More than seven freaking years ago. BTW I see Nadal's chances at 25% and if the courts would be faster at 0%. RG stays at 80%. He almost lost this year in the SF.
Poor guy can't personally speak with Federer! LOL. Look TD: RF is very focused & Kindergarten stuff is directed to Godsick. Without RF your tournament is crap. It's up to you, no? LOL.
No big surprise he's struggling after a couple of beers! ;-) I'm in that state when HE is playing! LOL. OTOH how bad must Rafa have felt after Barcelona and his favorite team (Real Madrid) got spanked by Bayern München (0:4) and BSV Dortmund (1:4)! Geezzzz.
At least in his home country he drives at 120 km/h (74.56 mph). In Germany which is not that far away from his home tome he can drive it as fast as he can. RS4 only makes 250km/h (155.34 mph) which imo is not really fast.
Yes I posted this a long time ago and it's still OK. There is no freaking god. Stupid idea. There is only birth and death! That what goes in between is merely hopeless unless your name is i.e. Roger Federer! LOL At least we can enjoy him! He he.
