(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!! **Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
Congrats to Paola.. I underestimated her when making my predictions. She'll face Matzevic next and if she survives that she should face Rubin/Farina Elia in the Round of 16, assuming there are no more upsets.

I must say that I am shocked. I absolutely expected Maggie to blow Paola off the court given Paola's not so great year and Maggie's great year, which includes her grasscourt Birmingham title. However, I am REALLY impressed with Paola's ability to win on a surface on which she isn't the most comfortable.
Well done Paola - Keep slicing through the draw
