it's definitely not too early to keep the bottles ready, alex......i have already stocked a 2 litre fruit beer bottle for emma......

 :rofl_2: good one Shank. the only problem is that she is nowhere to be found. darn girls playing hard to get... oh well, she'll show up eventually  :innocent:

I agree.

Are these "I agree." and "Ok" and "Yes" posts really necessary? Generally, when you read a thread, unless you have something meaningful to discuss and to add or something meaningful to discuss and counter an argument or a point, it is understood that you are ok with everything, you don't need to respond to every single post even when it has nothing to do with you. Do you know who Emma is? Do you know what "bottles" these two posters are talking about? Do you know what the joke is or what they are referring to? What exactly are you agreeing to?

Do you see anyone else posting replies with things like "Ok" "Yes" "I agree" or repeating the same exact thing in every post they make? I don't think so. You have some good information to share, be smart about it and share it and we'll all agree with you and have useful conversations. I look forward to the wealth of information you have even if it is just about Djokovic, and I look forward to having fun interesting and gasp even intellectual conversations with you. Do your posts "Ok" "Yes" "I agree" fall under fun, intellectual, progressive, or anything? I don't think so. I hope you agree.

Noleno1, I need a confirmation that you read this.

His game has dropped down dramatically but is still very good.
 
Looks like Djokovic 1.0.

Ah no, Djokovic has not downgraded until I see a few more tournaments.

There is no Djokovic 1.0 anymore. Djokovic 1.0 - meaning the solid world #3 and a consistent GS semifinalist and finalist with big wins over Federer and Nadal, had 1 slam at most. Djokovic now has 5 slams. There's a difference. He's had one loss this year to Murray and one loss to Isner and we are saying he's done already? Wow.

Yes the loss to Murray in Dubai was listless, but in IW he lost by the barest margins in a 3rd set buster. Nole is fine.

Exactly. He's had a few matches even last year when he won the closest of margins and he could have lost any of them, doesn't make him any less/more dominant just because one of the best servers edged him out in the third set tiebreaker.

Just talking about the IW performance,          Djokovic is still the best.

What a complete waste of breath that was Professor.

You cannot reason with a Troll.

How do folks like coming here and sorting through this rubbish to find relevant posts?

Better yet, when are the mods going to step in and deal with the problem?
