Some Players Support The Blue Clay Tennis Courts In Madrid

As we near the debut of Ion Tiriac’s controversial blue clay courts in Madrid, several top players have voiced their concerns over the initiative. But today, a few players have actually come out in support of the move away from the traditional red.

Tweeted WTA star Sorana Cirstea, “Im pro blue clay.Its a big step forward,an improvement in our sport,a way to grow and push our bounderies to progress!”

Worth noting is that Cirstea and Tiriac, the impresario behind the blue clay, are both from Romania.

Spaniard Fernando Verdasco also seemed to like the courts initially, but he needs more time on them. “Coming to Madrid is always different because of the altitude, it’s harder to control the ball, but as far as the court is concerned, in terms of mobility, I liked it a lot,” Verdasco said. “It’s easy to move around it and the mark the ball leaves on the surface is crystal clear. Perhaps the surface is not quite as bouncy as normal, which will make the courts slower, but that could just be a result of us having trained on an indoor court in the cold.

“I’ll have to try out an outdoor court when it’s sunny to verify that, but from today’s experience the courts seemed slower than on previous occasions and the ball seemed to lose a lot of speed when it hit the surface. It’s clear that when you hit the ball it doesn’t stop dead and in Madrid you need a few days to get used to that, but that’s more to do with the altitude than anything else. In general I liked what I saw, but I’m hoping to be able to test the courts out with some different weather conditions.”

And following a big Stuttgart title over the weekend, Maria Sharapova approved of the new hue. “It’s a little bit different. I’m here for the first time, but I think it’s unique. It’s obviously what the tournament wants. It’s all about being unique and different. I think that for the show and the excitement of the tournament. It’s very nice.”

Canadian Milos Raonic had his first hit on the smurf turf today but didn’t sound overly impressed. “Hitting on the Smurf clay, the bounce is lower and the 2 courts I practiced on were a bit more slippery than usual” he tweeted.

Clay King Rafael Nadal is expected to test the new courts out tomorrow upon his arrival in Madrid.

Steve 27 Says:

Tiriac is, undoubtedly, a peculiar character. First, Madrid on clay, second the pretty but dummy ball girls, and then, a blue surface on clay, yeah, Madrid is an unique championship. I forgot the trophy that Djokovic won last year. Who is next, mister Tiriac?. Perhaps a mix tournament like a grand slam?


Kimmi Says:

That is interesting what verdasco says about the ball mark that can be seen much clear on blue. this is a good thing, right?

I sometimes cant see the ball on red clay. blue clay should be good for spectators me thinks.


dari Says:

Listen, they’ve done the job of piquing interest and getting people to watch. I will be ready at the first ball!

The reports are confusing though, slow and low, slippery? It’s dramatically and beautifully blue. Who will shine on it, or will it be just the same overall?


skeezerweezer Says:

Oh Rafa,

Please all knowing Clay master please tell us if you approve or dis-approve so we may pray for your excuse again if you just happen to lose. Your opinion above all others is essential as you are the holiness of the only and true Red clay. It is blasphemous to change the color as u say as it will affect the bounce, the speed, and more importantly, the look of your numerous titles on the comfort of Red color. This will become very difficult for you and almost nearly impossible. But somehow it is impossible but you always come through, especially when you say impossible and very difficult, as all your matches seemingly are that way.

It may be better if u just don’t play…no? This is the true, no? But if you do, it will be a miracle if you win because you have never won on Blue Clay and impossible and very difficult as it may seem you will become holy in the eyes of your fans. Go on Rafa, you can do it even though they always conspire against you. Your fans love all that you are and all that you will ever be. Vamos!


Fleischer Says:

I hope the blue clay plays like clay.


Anna Says:

Seriously, Skeezer is in dire need of his meds.


Anna Says:

Or maybe a brewski or two. Just close your eyes skeeze, it’ll all be better in the morning.


skeezerweezer Says:

Anna,

So true. I took them and feeling better already ;) . All in good fun :)


Roger Federer Fan Says:

Great post Skeezer.

I love the way you work very hard here.

Kudos to you and Dave, two fantastic posters.

The best post from you in recent times is the one where you brought in the records of Steffi, Margaret Court, etc to prove that Rafa is not as great on clay as it is widely believed.

Keep up your good work. We need to protect Federer’s legacy.


skeezerweezer Says:

@RFF

And no…..quite the contrary….. thank YOU for your meaningless posts with worthless contributions other than riding on others coat tails, I am sure you feel admired and anamoured by you onelessness. Your yearning to feel noticed and your lustfullness for the attentioned mongering is well seen, and I am sure you must feel loved by it by yourself.

Blog on your fakefullness. You need to protect it.


Mg Mg Says:

Someone is really into Rafa :)


Dave Says:

skeezerweezer is very right about Rafa in every facet…the guy is always complaining about injury to get a psyche edge over his opponents…Yet he gets away with gamesmanship shit…incase you wonder why he would never win a sportsmanship award…yea! coz he’s a bad sport. Can’t wait for his knee caps to fall off asap…what a bitch!


racquet Says:

“incase you wonder why he would never win a sportsmanship award”

Apart from this one you mean?

Nadal wins Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award

LONDON (AP)—Top-ranked Rafael Nadal has won the ATP tour’s Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for the first time, ending Roger Federer’s streak of six in a row.

http://www.tennis.com/articles/templates/news.aspx?articleid=8843

Although Dave is often controversial (and wrong), he usually has good spelling and syntax. There is something suspect about the Dave post @ at 7:00 am. Is it really that simple to get the same name of an existing poster on this site?


grendel Says:

racquet – I agree. I instantly thought this was a different “Dave”.


alison hodge Says:

Raquet and Grendel its unusual to see posts from Dave using such unsavoury language like in the last line of that particular post,which was what got me wondering also.


roy Says:

players opinions on surface and speed are unreliable and almost useless. there are too many variables.
particularly temperature which has enormous impact on speed and bounce of ball.

just get two players, hawkeye them in play on the ‘different’ clays, indoor with controlled temperature,air pressure and get a valid result.


carlo Says:

Agree about Dave’s 7 am post. That has to be a different ‘Dave.’ Or the real Dave in an altered state.


carlo Says:

By the way when I said that thing about weak era i clay, it’s just a little nudge to the weak era promoters of Fed’s glory days 04-07. I’m not serious.

I can’t wait to see if the blue clay in Madrid really makes a difference. Still would pick Nadal, i think.

Nice to see Delpo on court this morning winning a match. But he’s playing Machado, so he should win.
Vamos gentle giant.


racquet Says:

grendel – apart from the style/syntax, the real Dave would be incapable of submitting such a pithy post. ;)


carlo Says:

That’s why I don’t drink and post.


RZ Says:

Interesting to me that some of the Spanish players always seem to mention Madrid’s altitude. Is Madrid really that high up? People I know who’ve visited the city say no, but perhaps the stadium is.


allcourt Says:

It’s too bad that it takes an attempt to discredit Rafa’s accomplishments for some people to give credit to the women’s tennis records. But whatever it takes I guess! haha


carlo Says:

Madrid’s altitude isn’t that high. 646 meters or something between 2-3,000 ft. (haven’t looked it up for awhile), is certainly not much trouble for such fit athletes. The altitude in say, Denver, if there was a tennis tournament there, might make some difference. It does with cyclists. Some train at high altitude and live there – places like Santa Fe, New Mexico, at over 7,000 ft., where Lance Armstrong trained.

Just watched Benoit Paire beat G-lo. Don’t know much about Paire but he can sure serve! Now watching Gulbis v Kohlschreiber. Gulbis trying to hang on and make a 250 quarter final. Serving well, but I’ll be surprised if he can beat Kohls. Poor Gulbis. Had such high hopes for him a couple years ago.


RZ Says:

Thanks Carlo. Maybe it’s the transition from Barcelona to Madrid that does it, since it seems to be the players who play Barcelona first who mention it.


carlo Says:

I guess it would be how the tennis ball flies. Maybe one or two thousand feet does make a big difference. There aren’t many tournaments at high altitude, are there?


carlo Says:

There should be a clay tournament in Davos :D


skeezerweezer Says:

There is no issue with altitude, its mostly attitude.

Depending on on high you are, altitude does have an effect on ball flight and bounce. The flight of the ball stays in the air longer. There are balls used to counter the effect. I can attest @ 6000 ft high there is a difference for sure. However, I am sure players of this caliber can adjust rather quickly. 2-3000′? Can’t be that bad.


carlo Says:

Thanks skeezer. I was just looking it all up – all altitudes of clay courts. (my day off)

But I looked up Madrid last year; altitude question always comes up. It’s actually 667 meters, according to wiki, and of all the clay tournaments, it is the highest. Was kind of thinking Munich was higher but it’s not.


jake Says:

At least now we will be looking forward for the finals and crown the king of blue clay.

i bet it will not be nadal.


mat4 Says:

@Skeezer:

Do you remember our bet? So, what’s your take for Madrid?

I am ready to bet 1. that Raja and Rafa will be in the same half of the draw in Paris, 2. that Raja will be the rajah.


carlo Says:

Just a word to other bracket players prior to Madrid:

Watched Tomic get a win over Starace in Munich. Close match but impressed with Bernie’s attitude when saving break points. Good win for Tomic.

Gulbis does not appear fit.

Delpo was in command. But we’ll see how he does against 2 time Estoril winner, Albert Montanes next.

Andujar and Ramos still on their winning ways. Andujar in Belgrade and Ramos in Estoril.

Tommy Haas had a good win over Tsonga in Munich. We’ll see how Tommy does v Baghdatis next. Maybe there was something wrong with Tsonga or he just wasn’t into it. Haas is good on clay though. I didn’t see that match, just followed scores yesterday.


skeezer Says:

Thanks carlo. Gulbis, ugh.


dari Says:

Thanks for the info Carlo. Haven’t done bracket challenge this year and will do for Madrid. Haven’t gotten to see a lot of live tennis lately, so this helps :)


dari Says:

Ps seems like Bernard is not the straight set type? He always seems to be in three, four five setters. Win or lose, it doesn’t seem to be straight forward.


skeezer Says:

Haha mat4, I cannot bet u cause I agree! Just hopin that a miracle happens ;)


dari Says:

Jake it may be blue but its still clay, don’t bet against the bull!


carlo Says:

dari, great you’ll be back! my username is Zoncoland – sort of a bad nick but a tribute to the great Zoncolan in the Giro d’ Italia.

Bernie does play a lot of 3 setters. Maybe he has to feel out his opponents. But Starace is good on clay. Sort of surprised me how relaxed and confident Tomic played that last set.

Munich matches for tomorrow look like fun: Tomic v F-lo and Haas v Baghdatis, also Cilic v Youzhny.

Gasquet has the easiest draw to the final in Estoril. I’ll be nervous for Delpo v Montanes.


mat4 Says:

@Skeezer:

It will have nothing to do with a miracle, but with new balls, hot weather, and patience.

Let’s put it this way: if I win, you will wear a cap ST till the USO. If you lose, you will also wear a cap ST until the USO. It seems there are no other possibilities.


carlo Says:

I wish this site allowed avatars. Then you can do avatar bets. Loser has to take the avatar he/she would least likely want. Skeezer would be some knee-up, fist vamos and fist pumping picture of Rafa. Mat4 might be Murray…but I can’t really tell who Mat4 doesn’t like.


Kimberly Says:

I believe Rafa will likely win Roland Garros. I would give him a 65% of winning the tournament. He is more likely to get through the field than Novak. So right there he is more likely to win. Novak more likely to lose to Murray or Federer than Rafa in my opinion. BUT if they both make it to the final than I would say 55-45 in Rafa favor.I would have said the reverse but for the Montecarlo match which even if Novak impaired, at least broke the string of losses. If they headed into RG and say rafa had lost 9 consecutive times i would have to favor novak although taking out rafa at RG is a different proposition than in a best of 3.


mat4 Says:

@Carlo:

You got me, damnit! Not Muzza! Not Lendl! Not Borg (though such an avatar could make me very popular among the blondies — so…) certainly not Borg!


mat4 Says:

@Kimberly:

Wanna bet? I am resigned to have a Borg avatar if I lose.


mat4 Says:

… or worst, a Julio Iglesias avatar. Even a George Clooney or Alain Delon avatar…


carlo Says:

Certainly agree, Kimberly.

Rafa is playing well. Is he at 2010 level? I’m not a Rafa connoiseur. Also have questions about how much Nole’s routine and training has been interrupted by his personal loss.

And Federer was in good form at Indian Wells.

But we’ll see in Madrid. Pretty certain I’ll pick Rafa to win. If something different happens in Madrid and Rome, then it will be more complicated. But for now: Rafa.


carlo Says:

What about a Lady Gaga avatar for you, Mat4?


Kimberly Says:

mat4—in 2009 I thought they might as well not even bother holding the tournament (RG). So what do I know?


skeezer Says:

Carlo

My Avatar?

Fabio.


carlo Says:

^^You mean this Fabio, skeezer?

http://www.fabioinc.com


skeezer Says:

Yep. The man, the myth, the legend.


carlo Says:

lol, avatar bets would be meaningless for me because, of course, I love everyone ;)

except…a lengthy list. Not giving anything away. And you can’t say Rafa or Vika, even though not favorites, I’d be honored. Would have to be someone not a tennis player.


skeezer Says:

carlo.

eegads man not him! lol…

BTW, I wonder what Humble Rafa’s avatar would be?


carlo Says:

^^ Mr. Lady Forehand or the Arrogant One…..no, second thought….Mirka and Federer together!! LOL


skeezer Says:

Public announcement;

I have been having relationship issues with “weezer” and now am officially divorced from the weezer name.( it was an ugly battle ). Now just “skeezer” ( for those of you with auto correction please turn it off, the name is not “skewer”. ) If anyone uses skeezerweezer it is not me. I am now skeezer, same ole bad @ss idiot of a poster.


carlo Says:

Definitely ‘Roger Federer Fan’ would get Federer holding AO trophy, GS # 16.


alison hodge Says:

Skeezer sounds much better anyway skeezer,and it is what everyone refers to you now anyway,it took some people a while to just refer to me as Alison instead of Alison Hodge,just as long as you dont change anything else,after all we wouldnt want you any other way.


harry Says:

I second alison. skeezer sounds much better :-)


Brando Says:

@skeezer: no worries, like the rest have said it does sound much better. :-)


jane Says:

Kimberly, Rafa = hands down favourite; most likely to win Roland Garros.

Avatars: I wouldn’t want George Clooney either mat4. I was quite happy to see him looking old in “The Descendants” (and the movie isn’t that good). Please: never Julia Roberts or Reese Witherspoon! As for tennis, no big muscled ones for me. Sleek, someone with long limbs – Steffi or Nole for example. ;)


mat4 Says:

@Carlo:

Who’s Lady Gaga?


mat4 Says:

@skeezer:

Humble Rafa would certain chose a very humble avatar…


Jamie Says:

Djokovic will win Madrid.

Nadal will win Rome.

Nadal will win RG.


Jamie Says:

I pick Johnny Depp as my avatar.


mat4 Says:

@Jamie:

For you, a Cassandra avatar!


carlo Says:

Mat4, you must be joking, but in case you are not:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrO4YZeyl0I

guessing you are not a fan?

I was naming names who I’d guess get as an avatar if they LOSE the bet!


mat4 Says:

@carlo:

Thank you for the clip! ;-)

BTW, is she the chick that sings or one of the good looking?


carlo Says:

That’s a good question, Mat4 :D

I like the sphynx cat in the video. The Mr. Bigglesworth looking cat from Austin Powers. I won’t link you to it. I’ve been putting up lots of nonsense links and feel guilty already.

My avatar would be that French actor from “The Last Mistress” (I’m female, btw, if you didn’t already know)


mat4 Says:

@carlo:

“I’m female, btw, if you didn’t already know”

I didn’t know. I wouldn’t joke about chicks if I knew, for sure. I am a bit ashamed.

Why a “carlo” nick?


carlo Says:

no worries, mat4. I’ll explain.

‘carlo’ is a twist on my dad’s name, “charlie.” He died but he’s my hero.

I was ‘contador’ here. Been posting here since US Open 2009. But I knew last summer, very depressingly, that Alberto Contador (big cycling fan) would get a ban. I can’t be ‘contador’ until …well, I don’t know. I’m still a Contador fan but he won’t get the ban lifted until Vuelta a Espana in August. So i took a new nick. didn’t tell anyone. I tried to clean up my posts. Was sort of surprised a reformed ‘contador’ as ‘carlo’ didn’t get busted. I’m still a Federer Fan, but a very moderate one. Actually, I don’t cheer for Federer now, except v Nadal, Berdych, and a few others. I don’t like Fedal matches/won’t watch them until they are over and only then if Federer has won. But the two: Federer and Nadal have a treasure trove of trophies and I cheer Nole, Murray, Delpo, ect…to get their due. But Federer’s ‘style’ of tennis is my favorite. Nole has grown on me a lot. I consider myself a Nole fan. And not only because of his winning record over Rafa. I liked him before that and saw him as Federer’s successor. Duro used to call me ‘countess’, which was flattering but I’m no countess, just a peasant.


carlo Says:

winning record over Rafa last year 2011, I mean.


mat4 Says:

I know you as Contador. But I didn’t post when you changed your nick.

I was an Hinault fan. The Tour went through my home town and we were trying without success most of the time, each year, to see le maillot jaune, the yellow shirt. Then, I got old, left France, and the last Tour I watched was won by Delgado, I can’t even remember when.

I remember well Duro calling you Countess. In a true sense, he got it right. We are all born noble, and our duty is never to forget it. (I am mad about myself the whole evening because I forget it in another thread.) So, when I read your last post, I felt those were words of a real Countess indeed, although just a peasant.


grendel Says:

Well, you could blow me down with a whatsit! I liked contador very much, and I like carlo very much – but I had no idea they were one and the same person. How blind of me. Now that you’ve explained, it all makes sense. It’s obvious. Actually, I knew anyway. I decline to be fooled in this way.

As a matter of fact, I don’t altogether know why, but I am suddenly put in mind of a little “poem” if that’s what it is by D.H.Lawrence:

“You tell me I am wrong.
Who are you, who is anyone, to tell me I am wrong?
I am not wrong.”


mat4 Says:

@grendel:

Why, Ô heaven why do you have to write everything better? You’re gonna make me learn English the way I always should have.

Glad Contador is back. Even if she didn’t leave at all.


grendel Says:

mat4 – I spent many years trying to learn French, and retired, defeated. I tried to learn German, and practically suffered a nervous breakdown. I had a bash – a long one – at Chinese, and never got beyond whatever. Then I had a go at Italian, quite a long go. No good at all. How do people learn foreign languages? Quite beyond me. Some people seem to do it with ease, almost absent mindedly. One’s always hearing of people with particular skills – a scientist perhaps – who just happen to have picked up 6 or so foreign languages. It’s outrageous. Apart from anything else, how on earth do they remember all the vocab? Of course, the “everything else” – actually being able to understand what anyone says – is the real killer. I can barely catch what people are saying in television dramas, especially American ones – I put on subtitles if they’re available. It’s true. It annoys the masses, though less than when I stop everything to ask what so and so just said.

Not only are you fluent in a foreign language, mat4, you write quite impressive haikus in it. You’ve no idea how impossible that sort of thing seems to someone like me, condemned to the icy constraints – of just the one language!


mat4 Says:

@grendel:

It wasn’t that, grendel. You have an evident gift for writing, and your associative flow is boundless.

About languages: I am a linguist by profession, specialized in phonology and comparative grammar.


jane Says:

The countess has outed herself. We of the bracket challenge had the inside scoop sooner in this case. :)

Like grendel, I am in awe of the multilingual.


skeezer Says:

contador came out of the closet! Yahoo!

now you know I am no Fabio. Dang!

:)


jane Says:

And here is skeezer, sans surname. :) No more wheezing or weezer alt-rock associations (though I do love that song “Undone”). You must feel unburdened!


skeezer Says:

mat4

Does your linquist profession cover Ventriloquists? ;)


carlo Says:

Well, I’m embarrassed but had to admit it sometime. Everyone in Kimberly’s tennis-x bracket group knows who I am and they were too sweet to bust me.

I miss being “conty.” But I just couldn’t have the name of a banned doper, though I think it’s arbitrary how UCI picks and chooses who to bust. Doping is rampant. Lance never tested positive but…anyone who follows, knows the history of US Postal team. Long story, lot’s of debate on Cycling forums about it.

Anyways, Mat4, of course I know Hinault. He is one of the greats who has all 3 grand tours. Contador should be added to that list because he won also won all three GT’s.

grendel :D I did a paper on “The Rocking-Horse Winner” in an undergrad literature class. Liked DH Lawrence very much and remember I chose Rocking-Horse winner because it was about luck. I never did get my masters in Nursing because I was so tired of school, being poor, had been making money paying off bills, and didn’t want more bills. Chose work over a higher degree, even if I did get accepted into a Nurse Practitioner program. In hindsight, rather have studied languages or anthropology. Nursing is really demanding on every level. alison, can vouch for me.


mat4 Says:

@jane, grendel:

My last summer camp was 6 years ago on the Côte d’Azur and I had the occasion to work with students and teachers of French from different parts of the world: from Spain, Belgium, Germany, Canada, Czech republic, Serbia, the States…

The best students were from ex Yugoslavia: Croats, Serbs, Macedonians… The only more gifted nation in Europe, IMHO, are Russians. You couldn’t tell the difference between radio Moscow in English and the BBC ten years ago, and I know Russians who speak French without accent.

So when I watch “Red Heat”… LOL…

BTW, my sister in law is British.


Kimberly Says:

Heat are up 3-0 against the Knicks in the first series. I think this one is done. Maybe a game 5 but quite likely they will eliminate them Sunday.

I’m off to see what they are saying on the Knicks and Bulls blogs but I will just lurk. If I even typed a word as a heat fan I would be clobbered.


mat4 Says:

So it helps me watch my favorite sitcom… Only Fools and Horses…

Thinking about it, I could change my nick in “Delboy” or “Rodney”. No, “Trigger”. Quite appropriated.


mat4 Says:

@skeezer:

Indeed, it does.


Brando Says:

@mat4:

‘So it helps me watch my favorite sitcom… Only Fools and Horses…’

THAT is an absolutely brilliant show! Hilarious each and every episode- UNTIL it got into the 1990s where- unfortunately- rodney became really annoying!

IF you like that sitcom mat4, im wondering if you have ever seen fawlty towers (john cleese)- THAT sitcom was also very funny.


jane Says:

I don’t know this sitcom, “Only Fools and Horses,” but it isn’t easy to find good ones, so I should watch for it.

mat4, how wonderful your profession sounds, meeting people from all over, while situated at a fabulous place together.


skeezerweezer Says:

http://espn.go.com/tennis/story/_/id/7886359/blue-smurf-clay-draws-mixed-reviews-debut

If Rafa wins, according to him, he will not be the true winner. Not the TV viewers, the fans, etc.
“Only the owner of the tournament wins.”
Check. Got it.


alison hodge Says:

Jane strange you dont get the british sitcoms over there,we get all the american ones here,cheers,friends,golden girls,taxi,will and grace etc,all classic american sitcoms.i have to say only fools and horses is about the best british sitcom ever made wogboys a big fan,i cant recomend it highly enough,as well as faulty towers,are you been served,rising damp,blackadder,the vicar of dibley to name but a few.


alison hodge Says:

Carlo@may 3rd 9.58pm, yeah indeed very demanding,both mentally and pysically sometimes,i come home drained of energy most days,and it can be heart breaking too,but its also very rewarding,i love my job and now i cant ever see or imagine myself doing anything else.


Kimberly Says:

FOr those who are concerned, I think there is a high possibility the heat are going to sweep the knicks. If not they will win in five.


carlo Says:

Happy for you, Kimberly :D I don’t watch basketball but go heat!


Dave Says:

Yeah, I did not write that post on May 3rd, 2012 at 7:00 am. This fake Dave has popped up a few times before already. I can be sloppy, but that’s definitely not my style.


skeezer Says:

alison,

No Fringe?


alison hodge Says:

Skeezer err sorry what not with you.


skeezer Says:

Fringe is a tv series by the creators of Lost


alison hodge Says:

Skeezer oh yeah my bad i do recall it now,although i must admit ive never seen it,was it any good if so i mght just give it a whirl?


skeezer Says:

Depends on what you like. It is a mystery about fringe science. You would have to start from the beginning of the series :)


alison hodge Says:

Skeezer i once tried to watch lost,and it left me feeling well lost,it doesnt actually sound like my cup of tea TBH,its sounds a bit too interlectual for my taste,having said that i loved Flashforward and that was quite heavy,but very well made, i was dissapointed that they didnt do another series.


Kimberly Says:

lol—the fake dave

I didn’t think it was the regular Dave. The post sounded way too slangy and crude for the real Dave.


Roger Federer Fan Says:

Dave,

A small suggestion from me to avoid the fake Dave popping up time and again…

Log out fully or close and reopen the browsers before posting as “King Federer”.

I know its very difficult to switch properly between personalities (“King Federer” and “Dave”).
But its very important to display the relevant personality for the relevant user name.

King Federer should be vulgar and abusive, but Dave should be sensible and objective with long posts.
We need both or your personalties in dealing with Rafa and his fans….with the proper user names.

Please dont mix it up.
Keep up your good work.


skeezer Says:

RFF,

Your criticizing a Fed fan. I knew you would break the most holy of Fed fan rules. You have now exposed yourself to the devilish fake that you are, a Rafa butt lover.

So where and what are you going to do now that you are exposed?

Suggestion; change your poster name to Rafa buttsniffer….

Very appropriate for you, and very honest.

Oh, and keep up the sh!tty work, I notice you get a TON of compliments….


Roger Federer Fan Says:

Skeezer,

I am very sorry if I have offended you.
My post was not to be a critic on Dave.

It is to help him to switch effectively between two personalities.

There is PM option option here for me to inform this to Dave privately.

You are all my very favorite posters here.

Please guide me on how to post correctly as a fed fan.

Sorry for breaking the rules. I shall try my best to follow your footsteps.


Roger Federer Fan Says:
