You'll have to ask The Astro-Predictor himself.
I'm sure he'll know.

Yes...and he may just get one right - for a change. :rofl_2:

where did you get the idea that i am wrong, dallas? my predictions are most of the times right, just that sometimes unknown factors like 'wimbledon indoors' get in the way and sometimes players decide to end their own runs like rafa ending his with his 'football tardism'.......

In all of the players careers there are times when they could have done something better.
 
It took Fed a long time to get his game straight in his younger years, the skills were there but his thinking was wrong.
 
Players miss opportunities all the time, they all give donations as you call it.
 
They try to keep these mistakes to a minimum, at Wimby I thought Nadal underestimated what kind of match Rosol would play.
 
The top players have to keep their focus all through the draw, the game isn't just skills on the court.

It's up to the player to do what's necessary to give themselves the best opportunity to win.  Some players choose to do that more often than others.  It certainly is more than skills on court or  X's & O's.

There can be an 'unknown factor' in EVERY match...that's why it's call "prediction"... Nothing is 'cut in stone'.... :rofl_2:  I can pull up a lot of 'predictions' over the years where you have been incorrect. :rofl_2:  But it's not a law against one predicting.... You go right ahead and keep those predictions coming in.  Maybe next time, you'll leave a margin of defeat in there for all the "unknown factors". :rofl_2:

Just having a little fun with you! :))

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Every single man in this army plays a vital role. Every man has a job to do. Every man is a vital link in the great chain.
An army is a team. It lives, sleeps, eats and fights as a team.
It's magic, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win. :)~ :)~ :rofl_2: :rofl_2:



Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

Let's take it one step further. Every Slam that Rafael Nadal did NOT win was a donation.

Happy?  ..-)
