    Yeah the retiring thing is my own personal paranoia and is most likely complete bullshit. Really odd performance though, even if he managed to get through this match he won’t beat djokovic playing this poorly.

    Rafa doesn’t seem right to me, he’s missed a lot of routine shots and would have broken twice had he made some of these shots. I’m still convinced he’s retiring when he loses.

    Oh man every post match interview with Rafa on court makes me think he is retiring, he keeps talking about his career in the past, I wonder if he'll bow out if he loses to Djokovic and it's like an inside secret?

    I feel Rafa is ready to retire, his interviews are becoming very much about what the future holds for him. God I love this guy he is such a nice man.

    Yeah what an amazing match, wow, flabbergasted after that.
  6. Black flame absolutely ruins them. They really messed me up with my first dex melee build but in my second playthrough as str/fth they were a joke as I could just use any black flame incantation to ruin them super quick, even the rot versions.
  7. Out of interest are you continuing to level and if so what level are you at? I'm at the end of my second character's playthrough and wondering whether to NG+ and if so whether to continue levelling.

    Not enjoying Carlos struggling but it is a great match, Ramos-Vinolas is showing his amazing talent, I think Carlos will lose unless he ups his game.

    Yeah it already is hilariously lopsided unfortunately, the ultra slow courts aren't helping, well they aren't helping anyone not called Djokovic at least! I really am not sure about night matches at RG, the clay becomes so heavy it really is a slugfest, I watched the fist two sets of the match last night and the kid was doing well. Carlos is struggling real hard with Vinolas who is playing great, Zed barely through in 5 sets, be interesting to see Rafa tonight on the cold clay, hopefully it warms up in Paris and I'm praying if there is a 1/4 between Rafa and Djoko it is in the daytime and it's very warm. Djoko's serve is looking pretty lethal along with everything else he has in his toolbag.
  10. The poster is totally dope. Need to find a decent high res one. It contains loads of stuff from the film.

    Oh man Felix is really struggling with this qualifier who is playing some great tennis. Felix looks flat and sluggish, completely different to how he was against Djokovic in Rome.
  12. Calling out a post with 4 posts and then a mod laughing isn't a good look chaps. You may not agree with the original poster but that's no reason to pile on.
  13. Everything Everywhere All At Once - 4/5 Fun, a masterclass in design, editing and costume, loved the rocks and the whole psychedelic experience but it was too long and hit you round the face with it's saccharine message so hard and often towards the end which could have been avoided by trimming it down and having more confidence in the audience's ability to understand what it was saying wihtout shoving it down their throats. Genuinely surprised by people declaring it one of the best films ever made, it's not even the best film I've seen this week.

    Djokovic will turn up, he'll most likely win it especially with Medvedev not playing and it's still a Grand Slam. Rafa, unsure, probably unlikely which is sensible as he has no chance of winning it, no doubt he'll be injured or something but really he'll be prepping for the American hard court swing.
  15. Yes basically. You also need to help Millicent to get it

    Can't help but laugh at this: Wimbledon stripped of ranking points over ban on Russian players Wimbledon effectively reduced to exhibition event https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2022/may/20/wimbledon-stripped-of-ranking-points-over-banning-of-russian-players-tennis Can't say I disagree with the decision personally, it feels ill thought out, vindictive, discriminatory and at worse racist.

    Oh no what a terrible draw. Rafa, Djokovic, Felix and Carlos all in the same half, exactly what I didn't want to see. Rafa would have to beat Felix, Djoko and Carlos to get to a final which I think is beyond him at present.
  18. The Souvenir Part II - 4.5/5 Just really fucking good, a film makers film. Some might find it pretentious but I found it very moving and it's great to see a British film actually doing something different with the medium compared to a lot of the typical types of films that come out of our industry. Part I is essential viewing beforehand.
  19. Gomorrah S5 - 1/5 - Wow they really ruined the final series, it's so shit. Compared to S1 which I would rate 5/5 it was a huge disappointment. Absolutely ridiculous things happen to service a non-sensical plot, the characters behave with no logic and do things again just to service a ridiculous shit plot, pretty gutted on this one but at least it's done now.

    With uncle Toni as his coach he's playing very well and he gave Djokovic a hell of a match on Friday night, did you catch it? It was excellent In fact it was a better performance than Carlos showed against Djokovic in Madrid, Carlos was missing a lot and Djokovic looked nervy and made many uncharacteristic mistakes possibly due ot the crowd and lack of match play. The way I see it Djokovic is still the man to beat after his performance in Rome this week. Tsitsipas has had elbow issues and even changed the strings on his racket because of this, he doesn't seem like the player he was last year. On Friday Felix showed that not only is his game top notch but he he is able to implement a plan and adapt to his opponent where needed, even Djokovic said after the match he was struggling to read and return his serve which as the best returner in history is praise indeed. Tsitsipas is pretty predictable and relies on hitting the ball very hard and coming in behind it. It's an attractive game but it's fairly one dimensional, he doesn't change things up and that was the why he lost the RG final last year after being 2 sets up. Novak like all great players can adapt and respond to his opponent, I just never see that with Stefan, he's either hot or not and he was totally shown up in today's final. The only reason it went to a breaker in the second was because Djokovic got a bit sloppy after bagelling him in the first set but the result was never in doubt. Djokovic could have lost on Friday though, that was a close match and Felix really was playing top level intelligent tennis the whole match, Djokovic just raised his game to that extra gear in the tiebreak as great champions do. I'm looking forward to RG I just hope it's a good draw, I'd hate Carlos, Felix and Nadal all being on the opposite side of the draw from Djokovic it will make it a really boring tournament if so, or at least the outcome will be very predictable. With Nadal looking weak it'd be nice to have someone who can give Djokovic a match and I hope it's either Felix or Carlos.
  21. If that is the only series you watched of it then I can understand why you think that, it gets a hell of a lot better. I've just started a rewatch and the pilot is ridiculous, they throw so much into it, multiple storylines and characters as if they really wanted to get commisioned and then the series as a whole suffers for it. But man it gets a lot more focused and tighter as it goes on and is actually a really good series all the way to the end. The actress that plays Ruth in Ozark is in it too, was the first time I saw her and her story is great. The whole lot is on disney at present.

    Absolutely awful final so far, Tsitsipas just playing brainless, seemingly no game plan or anything. Yeah Djokovic is playing well but this is not good enough from a finalist. Felix is leagues ahead of Stefanos at this stage and could be very exciting at RG. Djoko is favourite though now for both RG and Wimbledon in my view, and hell the US if Medvedev is not allowed to play which is ridiculous if so (looking at you LTA...)
  23. You should definitely watch the first 2 series that tell the story of Pablo Escobar, they are decent, more interesting than Ozark turned out.
