Oh come on, how can you give only 2 votes for Nadal and yet 3 for Murray ? ;-()


Well my original vote was Murray when I misunderstood the context of the poll, then I changed it to Djokovic once I realized.   Could a mod please take a vote away from Murray and add it to Djokovic, as I only voted for Murray misinterpreting the original context, thanks.

We don't have control of the amounts, all we can do is change the names, or edit the posts.

Hey!  That's a thought!  Scott...look into this! :rofl_2:

Scott don't look into it, as I'm thinking a certain Mr Federer may just get a whole host of new votes  :rofl_2:
