Yeah, very well done film and didn't receive Oscar nomination for
cinematography for nothing.
 
Didn't know that about Wood... but I did think she looked the same age.
 
I don't basically like these chick flick ghost romances... except this
one... plus gave Ghost, Portrait of Jennie (1948) and The Uninvited
(1944) 8... crap... what's next, giving Umbrellas of Cherbourg a 10?

Not sure I would either. Still a good one.

Also Rex Harrison... err William Holden. Well they look exactly the same
anyway. No ghosts.

I saw "John Wick". I learnt something important in this film: do not kill a hitman's puppy. I also wonder if John Wick would win a fight against Jason Bourne. This is also important.

Indeed. Also goes to show how Andy is the littlest one among the Big 4.
It should really be the Big 3.

Right. Just completely ignore Federer's slam distribution at the USO and W! You have some kind of psychological problem when it comes to admitting Fed's greatness. The Big Three players are all awesome in their own ways.

I think TT was only remarking how awesome Rafa's 5 * (RF + ND + AM)
FO count is among all those stats and I agree that it's phenomenal.
 
How about this: (Slam counts)
Fed = Rafa + Andy
Rafa = Djoker + Stan (or Andy)

lol
 
The thing that jumps out from the stats above is "x5"...
ahonkan <ahonkan@gmail.com>: Jul 07 10:22AM -0700

I think Rafa has the best dropshot in tennis. It doesn't bounce too high
and I have never seen it land in the net or on his side. Fed has probably
the second best. I have seen it fail a few times.
Andy has probably the worst dropshot among the big four. I have mostly
seen it fail badly. Plus, he generally tends to use it at a wrong time.

Rafa certainly hit at least a couple extremely good dropshots today on
big points... first at set point against him in third set, then in the
following TB.

Yes Gulbis is a great character. Pity he isn't more
dedicated/consistent. Doesn't hold back in his comments - dissed
Fed/Rafa many times. Plus he has a lot of talent.

Sure do. She was ridden with anxiety. What a shame.
 
She has the game to win Wimbledon, moreso than Kvitova. It's a pity
these players can't treat these opportunities as glorious privileges,
not something to make you fear for dear life. In the modern era there
really is no excuse for all these mental basketcases. Imo they deserve
to be derided/mocked by fans.
