Ah, my rubber duck quote is from Douglas Adams and dates back to the rubber duck fad.

Although my lil picture's changed ... s'pose I should change the quote.

And, Dana,about his interviews - they make me like him even more.


That's what I said. I said that I sometimes like him when he gives an interview, but mostly not on court.

I think they're equally annoying, can't say I've really counted them. Wink

But same goes for Djokovic, I don't like him either very much. The bouncing of the ball is a clear sign for bad sportsmanship, just like faking injuries. The truly great win without these silly tricks.

I hate it when Djokovic starts bouncing the ball- it's more than annoying. Of course it's his strategy but is it the way to distract the player and take the victory?

It's just a very unfortunate habit and maybe he isn't that motivated to get rid of it because he knows it causes his opponent to lose focus search me

I don't think it's a strategy but rather a very unfortunate habit. Maybe he isn't that motivated to stop the habit because he knows it causes his opponent to lose focus.


It's the problem.It's not fair, but what's fair nowadays? Frown

He's missing the next two Gland Slams because of surgery on his right knee.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga held a press conference at 6 pm on Saturday in a hotel in Paris to announce that he was withdrawing from the tournament. This year's Australian Open finalist will have to have an operation on his right knee and will also miss Wimbledon. The No.14 seed will be replaced by a lucky loser who will face American qualifier Scoville Jenkins in the first round.

Even after injury he still has a chance of finishing top 10 this year. Needs to beat Roddick today and Blake to lose to Federer. So i guess that mean he just has to beat Roddick Smile

Slight chance of Shanghai but would need to win in Paris.

Not bad for his injuries.

If he's missing AO and Wimbledon that makes three slams cause surely he won't be able to play RG in between...

I thought he just had to make the final?  Think
EDIT: (-51) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA): PARIS - must reach the final...if Simon or Ferrer reach QF, he must win the title.

Blake v Tsonga in the semi's decides who goes I think.... Blake is 20 race points ahead, so a final for Tsonga is 70 points and a QF for blake is 25, a semi 45. So Final would be enough.

Unless it's Nalbandian he's playing in the final, in which case, winner goes through.

Tsonga will finish top 10 this year. At worst it will be 9, at best i think it could be 6 but lets not get too far ahead.
