    Fernando says we finally decided to let Rafa loose. You see the results He is better than before, no?

    Djoker- I am sure you were watching. Here is the good news. You can eat gluten again. Bread, pasta, cereal. It does not matter. You cannot defeat what you saw yesterday. The vacation against lesser opponents is over. Plenty of butter, too on the bread. Enjoy.

    White Fang Murray- You are training like a fiend in Florida? Stop and go to the beach with a cocktail and relax. You could not beat Rafa before and you certainly can’t beat him now. Disheartening, no?

    Elegant Maestro– We have great respect for the soon to be displaced GOAT. In your new role as gatekeeper opponent for young and up and coming players, we truly hope our paths do not cross in upcoming draws. It will not be pretty. Respect.

    To the rest of the field- that scintilla of belief you all had after the loss to Horatio in Chile is gone. Fun while it lasted, no?

    Can imagine the adventures that Amy and Linz had together last week?

    Juan Jose,
    Spot on about Suarez Navarro not ready to take that step to the winners circle. YShe can not get bageled in a final especially when she got a solid win over Schiavone, French Open champion who has been sliding since 2011. LOL on Isner. Now, remember Djokovic and/or Gasquet had those red shoes a few years back?

    On the loser of the week, I thought you would have discussed the USA viewpoint one in Querrey where he blew a double break lead on Gulbis in the final set. Querrey had to feel bad when he saw or read that Gulbis won the title. Also, how about Ryan Harrison? Losing to Daniel Munoz-De La Nava in the first round. For all the praise on Harrison from USA players including the retired Roddick, he can not be losing to him.

    To All,
    Do you think Greg Sharko can get us the winners/unforced errors count from the Acapulco final where Nadal won handily? Top 4 seeds making the SF was the first time that has happened in the history in Dubai.

    By the way, I did pick Wozniacki as the loser of the week especially after her solid run in Doha(QF to A Radwanska) and Dubai(SF to Kvitova). She led by a set and a break against Wang(someone posted that she was in the final for Asian AO WC) and even made match point but failed to hang on in a match that lasted almost 2 hrs and 30 min. This was discussed for a while on in the comments section. Poster was impressed with Wang in that match but turns out Wang lost in straight sets to Mayr-Achleitner in the next round while I said that this was a bad loss. Read that Wozniacki saw the trainer b/w set 2 and 3 as she was dealing with heat illness and she said that she did not have energy and lost her focus. Another thing discussed was her playing that exo tonight in Hong Kong against A Radwanska and her wanting to get there quickly. The McIlroy incident in golf walking off the court only complicated matters as he said that he is not in a good place mentally. I wonder if the media will ask Wozniacki about this. Therefore, that is the definition of loser of the week for me.

    ATP Predicted Indian Wells winner – Djokovic
    WTA Predicted Indian Wells winner – Will wait on WTA draw today
