Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Serena Today At Cincinnati Tennis Masters; Ferrer Upset

Tournament favorites Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray all had little trouble in their Cincinnati openers yesterday. The top three seeds went 6-0 in sets and today there could be more one-way traffic.

Four-time champion Federer faces Aussie talent Benard Tomic. The Swiss has won both times they’ve played (in Australia) but is aware of the danger of Tomic.

“Obviously he likes the big stage,” Federer said of Tomic. “He likes playing against the best players. That’s what gets
him going right now. So it’s going to be a difficult match for me, I do believe. The last time couple of times I played him,
I was able to win. I did have to work hard, and that’s kind of what I expect this time around as well. Obviously this is much faster conditions than the Australian Open, so it will play very different. It’s going to be interesting to see how he comes
out and plays.”

Tomic had lost eight of his past nine matches entering Cincinnati.

Djokovic duels former Top 5 Nikolay Davydenko while Murray meets Frenchman Jeremy Chardy who upset Andy Roddick in the first round.

“Well, I haven’t played him for a while now, but he’s been around for a long time,” Djokovic said looking ahead to the Russian. “Great competitor and one of the quickest guys on tour. Very good from the baseline. I think these conditions here suit his game. It’s going to be a tough one.”

Juan Martin Del Potro was a winner Wednesday defeating the red hot Tommy Haas. Fourth seed David Ferrer was upset by Stanislas Wawrinka and Janko Tisparevic retired with a virus to Pablo Andujar.

The women are also in Cincinnati this week. Bidding for a first Cincinnati title Serena Williams will play a Radwanska sister for the third time in her last four events. Serena is riding an 18-match winning streak, claiming her last 11 in straight sets. Big sister Venus is also in action against French Open finalist Sara Errani.

105 Comments for Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Serena Today At Cincinnati Tennis Masters; Ferrer Upset

john Says:

Here comes the great Davy lol


dari Says:

not watching, but see delpo is in trouble against troick :/


dari Says:

he’s righted the ship for the most part

Go delpo!


dari Says:

Ugh reading commentary that delpo is Injured left wrist :(
Hope its not serious, we dont need any other casualties.


RZ Says:

Dari, I hope it’s not too bad. It would be a shame if it affected his US Open, especially as he now finally seems to be back where he was before he was injured before.


conty Says:

delpo has a wrist injury again?! dari?

i’m not watching….only livescore.


conty Says:

score looks bad 2nd set *worrying*


Sienna Says:

That has got to do with the epic semi

It seems like Fed is killing the next generation. One way or the other.
He is on a relentless tear. They try to follow but it is such a demanding game. fysically (delpo) and mentally ( Rafa)


dari Says:

im not watching either, conty by commentary, I meant “twitter” haha

they’re in a third set, with Troicki taking the second easily

crossing fingers, you would think if it was that bad he would have retired by now!


trufan Says:

Delpo injury would be so sad – he finally was assuered of a top 8 seeding at the USO, giving him a damn good chance of reaching at least the QF and then making some noise. If his old wrist injury has flared up again, two years after surgery – this could be the beginning of the end for him.

859 match wins, 31 years old, and Fed still appears to be healthier and fitter than almost any player on tour (except perhaps a few). I don’t think even Agassi was in that good a condition at 31 – especially considering the fact that he took a 2 year break midway through his career from tennis which rested and healed his body fully.


trufan Says:

People forget how hard it is to even win a single slam (Murray can attest to that!).

Only 146 men have EVER won a slam title, in over 100 years. Of these 146, only 83 could win a second title. Only 29 players have 5 or more singles slams – only 12 in the open era since 1968.

So for someone like Federer to come in and win 17, including winning one at almost 31 years of age, is an absolutely unbelievable feat. That’s 4% of the 439 singles slam titles ever contested in the last 130 years or so!!

He should write a book about staying fit and healthy at the highest level.


trufan Says:

Delpo won! phew….


Sienna Says:

Trufan
Thanks that was a great comment.

Fed is unbelievable.

People always praise him for his beautifull game, but I like the figther within him.

I believe he is the real ultimate fighter. Not with Vamosses but with a deep and inner self belief and mental powers.

He makes Yoda look like a freshman.


jane Says:

Cool stats trufan – “Only 29 players have 5 or more singles slams – only 12 in the open era since 1968.” wow, didn’t know this.


the mind reels Says:

Murray is down a set and now a break to Chardy. Anyone been watching who can comment on what’s going on in this match?


Brando Says:

@the mind reels:

just starting to watch it now, and muzza is struggling to get any rhythm going on his serve.

Also seems very low in energy.


Brando Says:

DF by murray on BP- big trouble here for muzza!


Brando Says:

3 BP for muzza now….


john Says:

ah come on, whats Murray doing…


Brando Says:

LOL, chardy also DF on a BP


john Says:

break back. Hope Murray Wins and at least makes it to the semis for a possible Djokovic show down.


Brando Says:

what the hell is going on here with muzza!

0-40


john Says:

This Chardy guy is playing ridicules, unbelievable and a lucky loser!


john Says:

5 breaks in a row…aghh


Brando Says:

5 breaks of serve in a row now- wow!


Brando Says:

chardy holds.


Sienna Says:

finally Chardy holds the break….

4-2 and FED is a break up 2-0


Brando Says:

man muzza already 0-30 on serve- i did not expect THIS kind of showing from him


Brando Says:

chardy- 2 points away from the win…….


alison Says:

TMR im watching the Murray match and hes missing alot of 1st serves,he got the break back,only to be broken again,its a very in different prformance by him perhaps hes just getting used to the conditions,but hes blowing hot and cold so far,hopefully he will do enough to come through.


Brando Says:

let’s see what happens here- chardy serving for the match……


Brando Says:

and he wins- well done chardy!

as for andy, the less said the better on this performance!


Kimberly Says:

there goes my bracket as I picked Murray to win the tournament. What is wrong with me? Sorry Margot. I’m done with this dude. Everytime I pick against him he performs and every time I pick him he hoses me with a sh-t performance like this. He is going in the Almagro Verdasco category of total bracket busters.


Brando Says:

Fed is a set up already- and looking awesome!

He was my pick for cincy.

I expect a fed v novak final- possible dress rehearsal for USO final?

Most likely IMO.


Sienna Says:

SILVER LINING!!!

Nadal will pull away from Murray about 700 points in ranking!!!!


Margot Says:

OMG a very bad day at the office for Andy. Hope it was just that and not something else. He wasn’t pushing down on his shots, serve was off and UE count, for Andy, was horrible.
Looked incredibly hot too, perhaps he hasn’t acclimatised. Who knows?
Bit of a shocker after the grass :(


Margot Says:

Brando, just read yours and agree Andy looked very lethargic. Hope nothing is wrong, just as I said above, not used to the heat.
Lost blooming points too.


laslo Says:

Defending champion losing heaps of points and no match play before USO. Er,didn’t someone on here yesterday say Andy was looking “ominous?”


Daniel Says:

I picked Fed as well, with Murray losing to DelPo in the quarters and DelPo beating Djoko again. Cincy favors DelPo game as well. I have Fed beating him on the final but DelPo winning the whole thing wouldn’t surprise me at all. Need the points, Fed and DelPo for the final. Plis Raonic needs to go deep as well, semis:)


Sienna Says:

wow Fed is hitting it clean and HE is looking ominous!

He comes to the net quit often and he suddenly is there you dont get tim to blink he is right on the net.

Fed- Djoker or Fed -Delpo……


Brando Says:

@Margot:

I’m not worried about the points- he’s a very safe no.4, rafa is out- so muzza will be no.3 very soon.

After yesterdays bad news regarding rafa, i was hoping to see muzza continue his awesome play from the olympics as comfort.

But unfortunately it wasn’t so.

I hope, and expect, he’ll be better at USO.

The serve going AWOL is a worry though- THAT was central in muzza winning gold, and he needs it back again ASAP for the USO!


skeezer Says:

Fed looking fairly sharp against Tomic. Up a break in the second and cruised in the first. Go Fed


Sienna Says:

fairly sharp;-) Skeezer. That is a understatement.


skeezer Says:

Fed is through looking very good and fresh. It will be Fish and Fed next .
———
Hey what happened to Andy?


the mind reels Says:

Fed through in straights, and he’ll meet Fish tomorrow. The two of them had a good match here in Cincy in 2010, I think. Fish pushed Federer to three sets, and he seems to be playing well again. Federer, too, is looking very good, though. I guess if I were a betting man I’d put my money on Roger…


john Says:

yeah, Feds only been on court 2 hours and 1 minute for both his matches.


racquet Says:

@ Margot

While it’s disappointing I wouldn’t read too much into it. He has played a lot of tennis over the last few weeks. Remember he went out in R1 of Queens, then made the final of Wimby. It’s all about peaking at the right time.


the DA Says:

With what I saw of Delpo’s match today, I’d be surprised if he made it past the next round. A flaky Troicki helped him out and it looked like he had a sore right wrist. Delpo was slicing waay more than usual.


trufan Says:

Fed did the job pretty well today. Murray seems to be having a low after the Olympics.

Lets see how Djoke fares tonite.


Rahul Says:

Ahh missed the match tonight but nice to hear Fed was hitting the ball cleanly.

@Trufan those were some brilliant stats about grand slam winners! In the previous article there was talk about making slams best of 3. That would really undermine what these great champs have achieved.


Sienna Says:

DAVE I dont know wher eyou are or where you said it…. BUT YOU ARE A GENIUS.

NADAL just released pressinfo about him trying to get ready for semi DAVIS Cup against USA!!!!

You said it first.


Eric Says:

Ouch! What happened to Andy? He destroyed Querrey yesterday…


Sienna Says:

Do you guys relly think Wimbledon is allowing slams to go to three sets?
I am stunned that you may think it will. It is a miracel that they allow breakers in first 4 sets.
Never will they go that way. And if the americans will go then US Open ill lose slamlevel in a instant.


van orten Says:

we all know fed is incredibly hard to beat on that fast hardcourt it requires special performance a bit of luck and a little help by fed himself…


steve-o Says:

Good clean match from Federer, against a tricky and talented opponent. He’s hitting the ball well and mixing it up brilliantly.

Fish will be difficult, he really likes these courts and he’s on a roll. Both guys know how to use the surface to their advantage so it will be a fun match.

Looks like Murray is having trouble switching to hard courts after such a long grass-court season. But I’m sure he’ll be solid in NY.


dari Says:

Sh*t is in shambles right now for tennis, sorry Andy!


Brando Says:

@Dari: LOL, at the comment- but very true! My hope is that delpo has a really good cincy, so that hopefully USO has 4 GENUINE cotenders. We all know fed, nole will be fine, muzza I also think shall be fine- so it would be brilliant IF delpo can join the party. He’d be an awesome subsitute for rafa in the contest for the title! Hope JMDP goes deep in the draw in cincy!


dari Says:

Well I mean not complete shambles, but rafa out, chardy beating up on some great players- Olympic year, fast court, makes for some surprising results. Anyone heard anything more about delpo? Glad he made it through.

I’m a littlr late but also wanna express my sympathies to rafa fans- its gotta be tough having your fave off the court fot so long, hope you are not too anxious thinking about what may be in the future,but if the past is any indication, then he wil come out super strong from this. Remembrances what happened after pulling out of wimby 09 !!! In the meantime, late summer early fall is great tennis weather, so you can take it out on the courts!


dari Says:

ND vs ND next! Djoko also a pillar of consistency right now.
Wow, watching some of fed and tomic replay before next match, fed looks good.
Hope they ALL bring their best to USO to compensate some of the fire power lost in rafa’s absence!


Eric Says:

Wow. Davydenko is certainly gifting Novak plenty of points, especially with all these doubles on important points (8 in just 3 service games, two of them at break point!). But Djokovic’s play is also raising a strong possibility of his acquiring the Canada/Cincy double – not to mention still being the favorite for the USO (or co-fav with Roger, at worst). Of course, plenty remains in his way!


john Says:

whats going on with Davydenko?

Weird,


Eric Says:

…and now Davy retired. Too bad; he’s obviously not actually injured.


gaga Says:

Federer and Djokovic have looked as the better players so far. It will not be a surprise that one of these two wins Cincinnati and USO. Even though Murray or Del Po winning USO would be great it will be nearly impossible. Federer and Djokovic are way too consistent and way too talented. This is a very hard era to win a slam if you are note Federer, Nadal or Djokovic.


Eric Says:

Meanwhile, Caroline Wozniacki remains intent on proving that you can get back to no. 1 even if you lose 2/3 of your service games…


Eric Says:

“…something wrong with his shoulder, I mean, eight double faults……I didn’t see him putting up even 40% of his effort…” -Djokovic on Davydenko


Brando Says:

very disappointing- officially davvy is done IMO.

He’s lost more than he has won this year, in terms of matches, so its not looking good.

On the other hand, SHOULD milos beat wawrinka (he can do so) then he shall be a top 16 seed at USO!

Hope he does so- as he deserves it!


Brando Says:

^ very unfortunate for davvy then.


Eric Says:

Which is interesting, because actually most games went to deuce, so obviously Davydenko was doing some things right. (Serving, obviously, was not one of them.) It was only at the end of the set that he was totally down and out.


Ben Pronin Says:

Yeah Davydenko wasn’t doing too bad on the baseline but those yips will get you.


Alok Says:

Davydenko’s serve was just pathetic. Poor guy he was sweating buckets, and got very frustrated after each doublefault, especially in the 4th game, when he DF again to give the game to Djokovic.


Wog boy Says:

We will take it but you cannot realy call this a match. Pity, after convincing wins against Dologopolov and Mayer I was expecting good match, but if he is injured then he is injured.
At least Novak can have a rest, not bad after Toronto.


jane Says:

I know Wog boy – I was expecting more from Davy after he beat Dolgo, who just won a tournament, and then Mayer too. But yeah, if something’s wrong, not much anyone can do but call it a day. As you say, a bit of respite for Novak is not a bad thing after some crowded play in TO. Still not sure what to expect from him here…


jane Says:

I didn’t see Andy M’s match, but it sounds like it was a bad day at the office? Chardy seems to be having a good stretch too though. Andy looked great versus Sam yesterday – excellent defence, great forehands, and stepping in when the opportunity was there. So I have to admit I was surprised. Maybe you’re right Margot – the heat or possibly the knee? Anyhow if it’s the latter, the bit of extra rest pre-USO will serve him well.


Daniel Says:

Just realize that after Nadal won RG 2005, all Grand Slams he did not play or lost before semis was won by you know who? Federer, sole exception AO 2011, which Nadal reached QF and Djokovic won.

Two times Nadal did not play (AO 06′ and WImby 09′) Federer was the winner.

Federer winning Slam and Nadal result in the same year after RG 05′
- Wimby 05′ 2RD
- US Open 05′ 3RD
- AO 06′ Did not play
- AO 07′ QF
- US Open 07′ 4RD
- RG 09′ 4RD
- Wimby 09′ Did not play
- AO 10′ QF
- Wimby 12′ Did not play

This year US Open Nadal is not playing, will see…


Wog boy Says:

jane,

Haven’t seen Andy’s match either, but saw Miloš’s match, he was good, very good and nice smile at the end of the match instead that poker face:) He can trouble Federer much more than Wawrinka if he is tomake it to SF.
As for Nole, he is going to do what he can do and he can do alot:)
Cheers


laslo Says:

The heat? Please. Andy fans are always crowing about how he lives in Miami and trains there.


The Great Davy Says:

Ha ha April Fulls guys don’t worry The Great Davy was just putting on The Greatest Act: An make-believe of what Rafa would be playing like right now if he played right now!

“Hurh, eh, my knee was pooping and cracking, that is why I miss serves and retire! Hyuck hyuck!”

I shore you I will be not “lack” of the best effort in New York. Either that or I will enjoy quality hotel and withdraw to enjoy quality hotel more.


jane Says:

Daniel, Nadal did play Wimbledon 2012 right? :)

Wog boy, too bad I missed Milos’ match, but a win over Berdy is pretty decent; Berdy has had poor results recently, it’s true, but he did well on this court last year – loves a fast surface usually. Anyhow, we’ll see if Raonic can build on his game. Nole has Cilic next – not sure if I’ll be able to watch it, but fingers crossed. Cheers back!


Nirmal Kumar Says:

I thought it was a good match for Andy to let it go. He had a good season so far and HC is quite natural to him. It’s better he takes a nice break than killing himself playing this tournament.

No point in killing himself playing semis against Novak and play against another top player in the finals.


Margot Says:

@racquet
Agree. Also was thinking, very dangerous I know ;)
that Andy had no time to celebrate his Olympics, he was straight on a plane, off to a different time zone, totally different conditions/weather etc and playing another tournament.
In interview with other gold medal winners many said they were going to “party” then take 6 weeks off.( Except darling Ben Ainslie who is off to the America’s Cup, but then he is a super hero…)
No chance for Andy to do that and he’s bound to feel a let down, better here than USOpen.
Also, do think there is some sort of knee issue, he wasn’t pushing up on that serve.
So better to rest up, have some TLC from Mr Lendl lol and get ready for the Big One.
@laslo
“always crowing” ? Don’t think so. Don’t know which site you’re reading, but certainly not this one.


laslo Says:

I read this site, Margot. *You* must be confusing this site with Tennis Talk. ;-)


Alok Says:

@laslo, you’re right on the heat thing. Murray, I believe, is living in Miami, which is a very hot place. I went there a couple of years ago to see the Fed play, and the heat was unbearable for someone who lives up North.

I won’t comment on TennisTalk, coz they’re in a different world all by their own. LOL.


skeezer Says:

^TT…Lmao!


Alok Says:

@skeezer, why?


laslo Says:

Alok and Skeezer,
They are a strange bunch over there. An entity called “Deuce” resides there and “it” sure has some demented ramblings.


skeezer Says:

^strange indeed. But laslo, I have been told “deuce” is but a pawn compared to NNY and nadline. Notice how the posts there have went waaay down since Rafa has not been playing? Oh yeah…sure….a real tennis talk website!

marcie can provide plenty of REAL Rafa websites, Rafaholics.com, etc. If you just want ALL Rafa! Hehe….

Love Tennis X, GOAT of dysfunctional Tennis talk sites!!!! Shhhhaaaammooon!


Ray Says:

TT is like a freaktown. the amount of stupid people out there is outright scary! they must have minimum dumbness level which they use to give people posting rights there! totally f$%ked up place.

it looks like it is back to the usual for murray. he seems destined to win inconsequential tournaments. i hope that doesn’t become his legacy!

i hope he brings his best game to USO! come on murray. let’s push nadal down the order in hardcourts. he is no.3 in his own generation. if you win some slams he becomes number 4.


Alok Says:

@laslo, I have a buddy who’s a Fed fan, and he tries to post there, but he is out of his league. He’s an extremely intelligent guy, and waay too good for TT, and they give him a tough time becoz he’s a Fed fan. He shows me the nonsense they write, it’s like something out of a gang movie. There’s a few of them that have this little clique and they trade sarcastic barbs with each other, and act as though the other posters are too stupid to understand what they are saying and doing. The NNY character behaves as though she’s the leader of the whole pack, and she harasses the Fed fans, while the other cronies back her up. Fed fans are outnumbered. From what I can see, there are Fed fans, and then there are Fed haters. The Murray, Djokovic and nadal fans all gang up on the Fed fans. It’s a weird sort of place.


Alok Says:

Oh I forgot to mention, something which skeezer pointed out. With Nadal injured the place is like someone just died, a ghost town. I cannot imagine how people can be so obsessed. Every site has its own weirdos though, bujt that one takes the cake.


Kimberly Says:

Murray does have a condo here in Miami, spends a
It of time here, likes th city, frequently dines at Nobu at the Shore Club. When he trains here in December, his off-season training, it is not that hot. Not like now. It’s prob high 70s f. Right now its mid 90s f. On hard courts it’s over 100, a little cooler on clay. Murray trains at University of Miami tennis center. His condo is on brickell avenue, an area just south of downtown and surprisingly quiet compared to south beach.


Kimberly Says:

Ray,that’s a ok, in clay he is number 1 in his own generation, oh wait, in every generation .please make me laugh and tell me someone in his generation is better,


skeezer Says:

@K

Thanks for the insight on Murray, didn’t know he cribs out in Miami, very cool info…


skeezer Says:

Alok & laslo & Ray,

Agree re; TT. If they named it RTT ( Rafa Tennis Talk ) then it would be truth. But alas, the site won’t own up to it. Anyways, enough trash on TT, Tennis X frowns on trashing other sites so I am sayng no more,.,.

Good matches tomorrow scheduled!!


Sienna Says:

I know for a fact that some of them onTT have multiple id’s.
Nadline used to gangs up with multiple id’s. of course they are protected by a big rafa fan who in fact is the moderator.
And beware i believe they are also active on this site.

So my adversary and doubting the hounesty about rafa and novak fans came from there.

It is terrible that keep on saying about roger.
Every single day.


nadalista Says:

Head-shake…..

You folks sure know a lot about low-brow TT, it’s posters and content, strange since you don’t visit the site, no?


Margot Says:

@Iaslo 5.52.
From Chambers, to crow: to triumph gleefully over others, to gloat.
Please substantiate your claim that Murray fans on here are “always crowing” over the fact that Andy has a place in Miami.
There’s all of 4 Murray fans on here so shouldn’t be too difficult.


Thomas Says:

TT has become the biggest joke in the world. The writers there are superb, and I love the way they preview every single match in a tournament. However,the posters there are so stupid that it’s not even funny.(it’s why I stopped visiting the sites) The rabid rafa fans constantly bleat on about the stupid “weak era” argument to diminish federer’s accomplishments, and complain passionately about Federer ALWAYS getting weak draws.(LOL) The murray/djokovic fans on there also dish out underhanded digs to federer.(like that “deuce” character, who also posts on this site as..”


Violet Says:

I like the articles on the TT site I just don’t read the coments anymore as it’s taken over by a handful of idiots. A while back I saw a poll on the site asking whether fed is the GOAT and I was sure most people would say no going by the frequent visitors(commenters) on the site but to my schock the far majority said yes. Clearly showing you also have a lot of sane people visiting TT as opposed to haters. I guess they just don’t bother to comment.


skeezer Says:

^exactly.


laslo Says:

Margot, or is it deuce?
But you have nothing to disprove what I say, do you? Either accept it or don’t. It really makes no difference to me either way.


Nativenewyorker Says:

You so-called geniuses here do know that this is a public forum that can be read by everyone! Meaning that your comments do get back to us over at TT! I love hearing insults from the same lunatics that got banned at TT!

Hey Sienna, nice to see you again! Not speaking all of that garbled english anymore, are you? It was as phony as you are!Too bad that your nasty big mouth got you banned. So you are back here with the rest of the lunatic asylum.

The idea of any of you, skeezer, sienna or maltheser aka maxi aka fleur aka madmax and the others here who are trashing those of us who post on TT, thinking you have any more brains or are superior in any way would be laughable if it wasn’t so insulting!

Did you think I wouldn’t find out what you are saying? The word for you people is trolls! You are Rafa haters, pure and simple! However, I am flattered that you thought to bring up myself, nadline and some others. It shows that we are getting to you. What would make me really scared, is if any of you ever liked what I wrote! God forbid!

You used to know me as Mindy. I left because of the hatefest on here that passes for so-called discussion of tennis. You should not give yourselves any airs of superiority. Your obsession with putting down a site you despise, shows your own obsession and pettiness.

So it’s nice to see those who were banned from TT for breaking the rules, still here posting their venom and hatred. Some things never change.


Alok Says:

Now catching up on my reading, been too busy watching the Fed play. WTA matches were high quality. Kerber is one to watch in the USO. Can’t believe she beat Serena.

Violet says: “Clearly showing you also have a lot of sane people visiting TT as opposed to haters. I guess they just don’t bother to comment.”

My comment above, I said every site has it’s share of weirdos, but some more than others.

Agree with Thomas, the articles at TT are very interesting and the writers do a good job with the match previews and match reports. Don’t see any cussing.


Alok Says:

Skeezer and Kimberly, from what I read on Murray, he’s got one very expensive pad in Miami. The article I read says he lives there to avoid UK taxes.


Alok Says:

Hey Nativenewyorker, take it easy man.


Nativenewyorker Says:

Alok,

Why don’t you butt out? This doesn’t concern you. However since you have opened up your mouth, maybe I will let you know what I thought of you mentioning me. Just egging people on or joining in piling on a Rafa fan from another forum?

Or you can continue posting on TT and creating havoc over there. You seem to like instigating. Oops sorry, you claimed to have some friends who post over there. You are not fooling anyone!

Since you don’t like TT, then why bother to read anything, including my comments? You said I was the leader of the pack, right? Just preaching to the choir?

Anybody else? More comments about how some one is my pawn? Any more comments from those who were banned from TT for harassing and intimidating Rafa fans? You stated your goal was to rid that site of Rafa fans. Instead you rid it of yourselves.

If anyone wants to say something to me, they can come on TT and post their comment. Oh sorry, except for those who were banned. I am looking at you Sienna and you maltheser aka maxi aka fleur.
