  • Federer takes on Simon in French Open fourth round

    6/1/13 11:45 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Federer takes on Simon in French Open fourth round Roger Federer will bid for a quarterfinal spot at Roland Garros on Sunday. Up next for Federer is another Frenchman, Gilles Simon.

    Roger Federer and Gilles Simon will be squaring off for the sixth time in their careers and for the second time this spring when they clash in the fourth round of the French Open on Sunday.

    Federer leads the head-to-head series 3-2 after crushing Simon 6-1, 6-2 last month on the clay courts of Rome. Not counting a 2011 first-set retirement, that was the only discouraging result of Simon's career against Federer. The Frenchman prevailed twice on hard courts in 2008 and a 2011 Australian Open showdown went Federer's way but lasted five sets.

    Simon has to feel like he has been dealt second life--or maybe even third--just to be in the second week at Roland Garros. The world No. 18 staged a comeback from two sets down against Lleyton Hewitt in the first round and he trailed Sam Querrey two sets to one on Friday before surviving in five. Simon also dropped the opening set of his second-rounder against Pablo Cuevas, only to win the next three all by 6-1 scorelines. The 15th seed is 26-14 for the season.

    Federer is heating up nicely this fortnight as he bids for his first title of 2013 while hoping to post a better result than he did in Madrid (third round) and Rome (blowout loss to Rafael Nadal in the final). The second-seeded Swiss has not dropped a single set through three rounds nor was he even extended to a tiebreaker during scalps of Pablo Carreno-Busta, Somdev Devvarman, and Julien Benneteau.

    While Simon has shown an ability to defeat Federer, their most recent encounter and the improved level of Roland Garros' 2009 champion do not suggest a similar surprise is on the horizon. Federer in straight sets is the pick.

C'MON FED! Would be very cool to see the FED go all the way. :) Whatever happens, Love you FED. C'MON! :)

sky , 6/2/13 2:27 AM


Go Rog!

xrf , 6/2/13 7:13 AM


Very good chance of going all the way in his side of the draw! Simon is poor, hasn't got the fans to trouble fed. Id be surprised if it went 4 sets

rafakid , 6/2/13 1:04 PM


Sorry I meant "game" to trouble

rafakid , 6/2/13 1:06 PM


I am happy that there is no one in Roger's half left to cause him a problem.

rogerthat , 6/2/13 2:36 PM


Nah no way! That Simon prat has let me down in a few bets! So inconsistent! I'm not here to hate I'm just here to voice my opinion on the match ahead! Seeing as I haven't backed Simon today he might actually win

rafakid , 6/2/13 2:36 PM


Not even Fedfans can be bothered to watch this train wreck..............

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 6:03 PM


RT @bgtennisnation: "This just like Rome for Fedfan vs Simon Sez who has nothing to hurt him with, just like i said this morning this is 1 way traffic for Fedfan"

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 6:09 PM


Simon says shank you very much. Roger is looking shaky now I'm afraid.

rogerthat , 6/2/13 6:38 PM


Looks like Shanksgiving Day in Paris now.

What's happening with Roger???

rogerthat , 6/2/13 6:42 PM


Simon takes the 2nd set.

nadline , 6/2/13 6:47 PM


Roger fell over and hurt his wrist!!!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 6:50 PM


Where are all my fellow fans? Allez!!!!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 6:51 PM


Geez, how do you drop a set to no-killer-shot Simon?

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 6:52 PM


that fall seemed to rattle Federer for a bit. Hope his concentration is back.

tj600 , 6/2/13 6:54 PM


its getting interesting now ........contrary to expectations

isfand , 6/2/13 7:02 PM


1 1/2 hrs into the match and Fed has just dropped his serve in the 3rd set. He's definitely not going to win this match in 1 1/2 hrs now chr20, is he?

nadline , 6/2/13 7:02 PM


Nooooo he will loose now. I think he was crying!!

C'mon!!!! Allez!!!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:03 PM


Too many shanks from Roger and 32 errors from him. Why?!??!

Simon can not keep this up.
C'mon!!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:07 PM


Where are my Fedfans?

I am worried now!!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:08 PM


What was that drop shot?????

Is roger hurt????

He should be winning this easier?

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:10 PM


Is that Roger laughing for 10 minutes?

Double break, Simon!!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:11 PM


Roger in deep problem :D

rafaelo , 6/2/13 7:11 PM


Fed's cheering thread is deserted by his fans......................where are they? They have more to say about Rafa than they ever do about Fed.

nadline , 6/2/13 7:11 PM


*trouble i meant

rafaelo , 6/2/13 7:12 PM




Where are my Fedfans?

I am worried now!!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:08 PM


They are trolling on Rafa threads!!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:12 PM


The French are cheering Fed's mistakes.

nadline , 6/2/13 7:15 PM


ALLEZ POULE!!!!

zare , 6/2/13 7:17 PM


You gotta give it to Fed, even his shanks are beautifully executed!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:18 PM


NOOOOOOOKOOOOOOO!!!!

What happened to Roger?

I think it is not too late for him to come back and win the next two sets. He has done this many times in the past. If Tommy can do it, Roger can to I believe.

Allez!!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:18 PM


Allez Gilles!!!

textor , 6/2/13 7:18 PM


"They are trolling on Rafa threads!!
rafaisthebest, 6/2/13 7:12 PM"
Hahaha.... ROFL!!!

zare , 6/2/13 7:21 PM


rafaisthebest, this is Novak fans doing this

Roger playing better now.

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:21 PM


Should Fed survive this, Tsonga will have him for breakfast........

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:26 PM


chr20, 2hrs gone and Roger is 2:1 and 1:1 in the 4th set.

Just saying.

nadline , 6/2/13 7:26 PM


Don't be afraid... Gilles will choke :(

zare , 6/2/13 7:27 PM


@rogerthat, I beg to differ my dear sir, those are Fedfans masquerading as Nole fans...

It's the true, no?

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:28 PM


Yes :)

zare , 6/2/13 7:29 PM


Roger is not playing dat bad...its just dat simon ups his level unbeilevebly

Fedzz22 , 6/2/13 7:30 PM


I hate to say this but I think you are right rafan.

It seems I am the only fan on this thread but I will not give up!!

Allez.

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:30 PM


Someone please call 911, GOAT on deck!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:31 PM


I'll say that again.

chr20, 2hrs gone and Roger is 1:2 sets down and 1:1 in the 4th set.

nadline , 6/2/13 7:31 PM


"Sky" is also beautiful Fedfan!

zare , 6/2/13 7:32 PM


Now its time for simon to choke..

Fedzz22 , 6/2/13 7:33 PM


You seem like a nice Fedfan, rogerthat, as you can see some Rafans and Nole fans are around to keep you company in your hour of need.........

Such a shame that some of your fellow Fedfans are too ashamed to show their support for their hero...........

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:34 PM


I have started to watch at the beginning of fourth set. Gilles is playing aggressive tennis?
I thought that his plan is to lullaby Roge with his endless defense.

zare , 6/2/13 7:35 PM


You are right fedzz. I don't think that roger can win on his own today I am afraid.

0-30 so now is Rogers moment.

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:35 PM


Still think Fed can win this in five. Perhaps his wrist was hurting a bit but he seems to be up for the fight!! I doubt Simon can win this in five...................too much pressure in front of his home crowd!!!

Monalysa , 6/2/13 7:36 PM


Allez Fed! Allez Gillou!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:37 PM


Where is sanju who thought Fed was sharp because he bullied 2 qualifiers and a one legged Benny?

nadline , 6/2/13 7:37 PM


If Simon wins, it will be in 4 sets... in fifth Fed will deliver.

zare , 6/2/13 7:38 PM


I woke up to see Fed down two sets to one! Is this a bad dream? Where are all the Fed fans? Where is seventeen with the filthy language? They deserted their man in his time of need?

Now I have to go watch this and see what happens. Good for Simon for really making a great match out of this!

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 7:39 PM


OMG, a Fed fist pump!!

Vamos

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:39 PM


ThankYou Rafan.

Looks like typical French player Simon is choking now and bowing to Feds dominance.

The French fans are showing their full support for Roger now.

Allez!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:40 PM


Rogerthat,

They are supporting both players, just that crowd wont mind if game goes to a fifth!!!!

Monalysa , 6/2/13 7:42 PM


Hey chr20-10, how long has Fed been on court now?

#SimpleIdiot

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:43 PM


federer to make RG final .......... imo

isfand , 6/2/13 7:46 PM


2:2... AUREVOIR GILLES...

zare , 6/2/13 7:46 PM


Federer is serving 1st....huge advantage

Fedzz22 , 6/2/13 7:48 PM


And Simon Chokes!!!!! Lets see what he brings to the fifth set!!!

Monalysa , 6/2/13 7:48 PM


Hey chr20-10, how long has Fed been on court now?

#SimpleIdiot

idiot, stop calling people idots.

rfzr , 6/2/13 7:48 PM


Surprising display of tennis from Simon... Good for him to come out energized for his home tournament. He's really pushing the pace of the match and being the aggressor. Fed's game seems really off after that tumble he took. Hopefully he didnt aggravate something...

aegis , 6/2/13 7:48 PM


Should Fed survive this, Tsonga will have him for breakfast........
rafaisthebest, 6/2/13 7:26 PM

Exactly my thought, ritb...

phoenix , 6/2/13 7:50 PM


rfzr , 6/2/13 7:48 PM

Idiot, is your name chr18?

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:53 PM


Federer owns Simon now. Simon could not keep that level. The crowd helped Roger thanks goodness!!!

rogerthat , 6/2/13 7:53 PM




"And today I was playing almost three hours on court, and my opponent was watching the TV in the locker room."
Simple idiot. Win your match in a hour and a half like Fed.

chr18 , 6/2/13 6:39 PM

Hey rfzr, what have you got to say about chr18's message above? Idiot.........

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:55 PM


Well surprising but hes gonna win it anyway.

sanju , 6/2/13 7:56 PM


I am glad Fed is being stretched, this will put an end to all the nonsense that was being written about Rafa being tested by quality opponents............

If Tsonga doesn't get him, Ferru will.................

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 7:58 PM


I may have spoke to soon but what in the world happened to Simon... Did he just mentally give in... Wow.

aegis , 6/2/13 7:58 PM


...and Simon is gifting point after point...

zare , 6/2/13 7:59 PM


federer over tsonga in 4
federer over ferrer in 4
federer loses in final against nadal in 3

isfand , 6/2/13 8:00 PM


Hey rfzr, what have you got to say about chr18's message above? Idiot.........

most unpleasant crowd these rafabots. gtfo.

rfzr , 6/2/13 8:00 PM


Simon does not have any weapons, he has been in a funk for yonks. He was never going to win. How he has stretched Fed to 5 is the question..........................

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:01 PM


Simon has played a number of a five setters so anything can happen but trailing 3 love, there is no hope for him now!! Roger in 5!!!!

Monalysa , 6/2/13 8:02 PM


Great tennis match. The french do not produce one-surface ponies like the spanish for sure.

As mentioned, entire spanish armada minus Mr. Toni Slave are 0-44 against Roger. The french got players with charisma and flair. Tsonga, Monfils, Paire, Simon, Chardy..... KTSP has the personality of a wooden chair. Only grannies falling for his "charm". LOL!

Fedkovic23 , 6/2/13 8:02 PM


What a gift from Simon nicely gift wrapped . Donating error after error

Tsonga can be very erratic, his UE will gift Fed the match

sanju , 6/2/13 8:02 PM


Hahaha! It's safe to show your faces now Fedfans! We have been holding the fort for you!

#FairWeatherFans

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:04 PM


Look who came out only when Fed now seems to be in control of the fifth set!

As their guy has battled to a fifth set to beat the likes of Simon, they are still hating on Rafa and his fans! Pathetic!

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 8:05 PM


Ferru, you are in with a BIG chance my son!!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:07 PM


nativeolddorker: don't choke on your valium. be careful please.

rfzr , 6/2/13 8:10 PM


Allez Gillou!!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:10 PM


rfzr,

But maybe you will choke on yours hater!

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 8:11 PM


federer will win but very bad performance! against tsonga he will be send packing if he plays like this!

rafaelo , 6/2/13 8:13 PM


True Simon has no weapons whatsoever, he is just drawing Fed into long rallies which ofcourse Fed does not lies

Guys I still cant believe you all get drawn into discussion with the biggest and most insecure clowns.The fact that they disappeared from face of Mother Earth for 3 sets just shows what they are made of.

sanju , 6/2/13 8:13 PM


@nny, they know the writing is on the wall! Fed will survive this, get marinated by Tsonga, if he survives that, he will then be spit-braaied by Ferru ready for Rafa to carve him up!!!!!

#WhyMe?

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:15 PM


Fed will win in 5; no thanks to his fair weather fans.

nadline , 6/2/13 8:15 PM


Don't worry good Fedfans like @rogerthat, we are here to pick up the slack in Fed's next match....

#LeanOnUs

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:18 PM


I still dont doubt that Fed will make it to the finals bcos whenever anyone apart from the top 3 play against Federer, its just choke, choke, choke!!!! I am no holding my breath on Fed losing to any one of his opponets up to the semis..........sorry!!!

Monalysa , 6/2/13 8:19 PM


Thanks for the predictions all, but even us Fedfans know Rafa will ultimately win RG yet again, there are never any real surprises in this tournament... Anyone who says otherwise is just fooling themselves.

aegis , 6/2/13 8:22 PM


Fed will beat Tsonga, no doubt, but he will be put through the wringer. He will not survive Ferru, I promise you.............

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:22 PM


@ritb,

Tsonga seems to playing very well. If he can come out and play his game and stay strong, then he's got a shot. However, sometimes when a player survives a match like this and comes back to win it gives them an edge.

It's a joke that the Fed fans weren't even here to stand up for their guy. Zero respect for hiding!

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 8:23 PM


"nativeolddorker:"

El classico! suits CBM to the tee.

to summarize the many names of CBM:

#LaughingStockofTheTennisWorld

JamesDjokovicFan , 6/2/13 8:24 PM


The French are cheering Fed's mistake when he is serving for the match!

nadline , 6/2/13 8:25 PM


^^^^

That's all you got?

Haters gonna hate!

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 8:25 PM


Thanks @aegis, but Rafa has his own battle ahead, including a potential baptism of fire with the best player in the world.......so, nothing decided yet.............

@nny, I have no faith in Tsonga, he will choke..............remember how he choked away match points against Nole last year?

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:26 PM


It's a myth that the French love Fed.

nadline , 6/2/13 8:27 PM


@ritb, you dont really believe that do you...? Rafa has a clear path to the final. Novak may be the best player in the world... but not on clay... and not at RG where he has only reached 1 final (last year when he was in top form)... It will be another topping to Rafa's RG collection... as hard as that is to say for me... Although it would be very nice to see David Ferrer get a GS here.

aegis , 6/2/13 8:28 PM


Fed's borrowed Almagro's brain!!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:29 PM


@ritb,

You never know. I agree that he has choked any number of times against the top players but maybe this is his time.

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 8:29 PM


I cant believe Fed is so tight erving for the match, unbelievably tight. His serve is bailing him out

sanju , 6/2/13 8:30 PM


Did it take like 4 hours?

sanju , 6/2/13 8:32 PM


GSM Fed! Chapeau Gillou!! Animo!

Can't wait to see how Tsonga approaches his match vs Fed, he must be thinking: I can do better.

@aegis, congratulations, your man's thru! One match at a time.................

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:32 PM


I like Tsonga but he's so unpredictable just like Berdych, so you never know what to expect from the guy... He always seems to cruise right up to the QFs but has never been able to take it up to the next level... Going to be an intriguing match.

aegis , 6/2/13 8:34 PM


So why did TMF, the multi, multi Slam winner with countless Masters to his name, have so much trouble putting away a relatively lightweight player like Simon who has never even won a masters?

ed251137 , 6/2/13 8:34 PM


Rafans, please turn out in full force tomorrow to cheer Rafa on!!

Vamos!!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:35 PM


RITB.I will be cheering but silently, I wont watch any match till semis :-)

sanju , 6/2/13 8:36 PM


@ Sanju, sometimes its like that...............no matter how many times you've done it!!!

Monalysa , 6/2/13 8:37 PM


@sanju, never doubt Rafa's abilities okay?

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:37 PM


I will not be cheering silently for Rafa, win or lose!!!! No matter what, he's my Champ!!!!

Anyway, congrats Fed fans (the nice ones!)

Monalysa , 6/2/13 8:39 PM


RT @AmyFetherolf: "@adel1609: #Federer: "I think I lost some confidence when I fell down. I didn't want to go back home to soon". #RG13"

So, Fed is enjoying himself on the clay, not in a hurry to go practicing on grass I see.........

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:40 PM


"Federer through to 36th straight major QF. Only 5 other men have PLAYED in last 36 majors...F. Lopez, Ferrer, Verdasco, Berdych & Montanes"

3 of those 5 are also way past their prime... although it is a bit surprising that Berdych has even played in that many GS...

aegis , 6/2/13 8:41 PM


RITB..I dont doubt his abilities. I am too nervous to watch. Its more about me, not him :-)

sanju , 6/2/13 8:46 PM


This is getting tasty!

RT @scambers73: "Roger Federer survives scare against a Gilles Simon, who played as if he was Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The real @JoWillyTsonga comes next "

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:49 PM


Awesome match!
Federer's draw is NOT a joke, or even easy.
There I said it.
Puh.
Hope you got enough practice Rog ;) ! Allez!

xrf , 6/2/13 8:50 PM


Just to clarify, my response at 8:25 PM was directed to the hater's post @ 8:24 PM.

@sanju,

I am always nervous, but will still watch. I want to be there to support Rafa no matter what. This isn't easy for him. His first slam in a year.

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 8:50 PM


*headshake*

Roger Federer just got take to a 5th set by the poor man's Radwanska................

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 8:56 PM


You would think that Fed would make short work of a guy like Simon and count his blessings for such a cupcake draw.

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 8:57 PM


entertaining match, simon played great tennis.

rfzr , 6/2/13 9:01 PM


He really did, especially in that 3rd set.

xrf , 6/2/13 9:05 PM


36th consecutive quarter-final. No losing to losers like rosol in 2nd round or clowns like ferrer in a grandslam [KTSP lost 2 times to that joker in a GS]

Next in line Djokovic with 15.

The two fittest and complete players post 2000.

Fedkovic forever.

Fedkovic23 , 6/2/13 9:16 PM


Simon was returning and playing so well in the 2nd ,3rd and the start of the 4th set........but its tuff to maintain dat level against The Top 4...specially Against GOAT he Allways sum how find a way to beat those guys.....

Fedzz22 , 6/2/13 9:22 PM


You just know you are scraping the barrel when you start boasting about QF appearances.

nadline , 6/2/13 9:27 PM


Fedkovic:

Nole is coming after the Swiss Maestro's 23 semi-final record too. He is on 11 right now, more than the double of the rafatards' most complete player -naydull.

You can be sure Nole is going to wipe the PC court with naydull on friday. He has the same intensity he had in montecarlo.

JamesDjokovicFan , 6/2/13 9:28 PM


With the weak draws spoonFed gets, you'd have to make it to at least quarters, wouldn't you?

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 9:32 PM


ofcourse, not all players have that great 2nd round streak which was ended by a 100th ranked player by banging the hell out of the beast.

We will be humble and talk about quarterfinal streaks and leave the boasting about 2nd round streaks to naydull and his spanish clowns ferrer and almagro.

JamesDjokovicFan , 6/2/13 9:34 PM


I'm happy for the Paper Goat to make SFs for the rest of his career; he has not kissed a trophy for 9 long months and counting. 6 trophies in 8 tourneys is what counts

The Paper GOAT will retire without an Olympic Singles Gold Medal in his cabinet.

nadline , 6/2/13 9:42 PM


Nadline........Fedfans Love his Artistry rather than wins...he has nothing to proove Now...He won Allmst evrythng....

Fedzz22 , 6/2/13 9:46 PM


Geez, first non-qualifier out of the traps takes Fed to 5, isn't that a record in itself? Benny was injured so qualifies as a qualifier.................

#GOAT

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 9:46 PM


Fair enough! A five setter to cement your 900th win, classy! I think this bodes well for tsonga thou after his perfect win and thereafter the possibility of ferrer! If fed manages to win RG, fair play to him

rafakid , 6/2/13 9:47 PM


He won Allmst evrythng....
Fedzz22, 6/2/13 9:46 PM

'Almost'. So now he's settled for Qtrs and SFs.

nadline , 6/2/13 9:48 PM


Rafa fans, stop playing chicken and face up to your real rival. The guy who flogged your guy 7 times in a row. Stop burying your heads up rafa's behind to hide from reality.

Maybe you should ask laver/borg to come and play so that nay-dull can have a better record against them.

#StopTheChickenRun

JamesDjokovicFan , 6/2/13 9:50 PM


Fed has a record that will never be broken................the first player to be beaten by Nadal 20 times.

^^^^

You have to be a total moron to do somebody else's dirty work! I can't believe these trolls don't even realize how they are being manipulated.

Real tough guys! So macho! Talking the talk behind a phony screen name! Yeah, that's about all they are able to do.

Talk is cheap!

Look what Jon Wertheim just went and done???

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/tennis/news/20130602/frenc h-open-midterm-grades-roger-federer-serena-williams/

After Fed gets taken to 5 -sets by Radwanska, sorry, Simon, Wertheim awards him an A-grade for a "courageous 5-setter over Gilles Simon" Rafa gets a B, and wait for this............Novak does not even get a mention, let alone a grade!!

rafaisthebest , 6/2/13 9:55 PM


Sorry, I need to make it clear that my post @ 9:54 PM was meant for the hater JamesNOTDjokovicFan!

It's true that Fed does have the record for being beaten by Rafa 20 times. That will be in the history books for sure!

ritb,

It is funny reading that nonsense. Yes, it's really courageous to beat Simon in five sets after having a draw that was so easy Fed could have slept his way through it! I think the courageous one was Simon. He just couldn't keep it together to get it done. No one thought he would have the game to push Fed, but he showed once again that he can give Fed all kinds of trouble.

Nativenewyorker , 6/2/13 9:59 PM


Well I was not posting with my iPhone battery died.

Federer won as to be expected and as I believe Herr Dimon would say never in doubt when Roger settled down. It was a bit touch and go for a while.

JamesDjokovicFan can you explain what # means for me and ^^^ Thank you. I am new here!

Hopp Roger!

For Fed, beating 2 qualifiers, an injured Benny and being taken to 5 sets by the poor man's Radwanska it's an A because Fed is not in the same league as the King of Clay, who is taking a more advanced paper as he hardly ever drops a serve let alone a set at RG by his standards.

^^^ja, ja, agree @nadline, about the King of Clay being given a more advanced paper. Makes sense. Explains why Fed has to go through a cake walk draw, makes sense.

Has anyone noticed that seventeen can sometimes actually write a complete sentence with decent grammar? Hmmm.... it's just so oddly familiar! LOL!

You ought to know all about it! Can you post more than one sentence or is that asking too much? LOL!

I'm not the only one who thinks that this is Fed's exhibition practise draw.

It's so pathetic that every new poster that's not a nadal fan, is a fake, someone who is a Fed morphed poster, and albeit they say nothing to NNY and her band of clowns, she/they keeps gunning for them until they leave What a sick thing this woman is, and has zero class embarassing herself to nol end. Get a life troll.

"They are trolling on rafa threads". don't rafa fans troll on Fed threads more than Fed fans on rafa threads We are only a few, only a handful. BTW, rafa fans troll on Fed websites also, with several monikers, so what's the problem?
