I don't know about that, but you don't even make the top 10 trollers
anymore with weak efforts such as this.

It will be interesting to see what happens if Verdasco and Fed face
each other at IW or Miami this year.

Ferrer has no shots, just legs.

Verdasco always had shots, now he has fitness and attitude.

Federer would have beaten Verdasco - not that it means anything

Agree on Fernando.

IF [big] IF Verdasco can maintain the serving level he achieved
(less the last point) and reduce the unforced errors, he might be
right behind Nadal now in overall ability. He was no less good than
Rafa in the semi.

Who'd want to play this indefatigable guy?

Nadal said to Verdasco that he can be any number in the rankings if he
continues playing like this.

I don't think he will though, maybe another Ferrer in the making.

Verdasco has a more interesting game that Ferrer.

I hope he will be better than that. I don't see why he wouldn't.

If he played at the same level as he played Rafa, Verdasco
would have taken out Federer in the final.

Who knows if he can/will keep it up? I guess he's a bit
of a jet-setter from an upper class family and never wanted
to work hard before. Now that's head a taste of success,
will it spur him on to greater things? Stay tuned.

I figure Verdasco would have won the final as well. That's why
Rafa hit the court when he beat Fernando. He knew that the
semi was the REAL final.

Nice to see you again, too.

It's not a "troll." I'm tired of this "Roger and Rafa are in a league
of their own" stuff. *Rafa* is in a league of his own. Verdasco
certainly gave Rafa a tougher match than Feddy did. I don't
know why you would hint otherwise.
