Re: Does Tennis Need A 5th Slam?

No fifth. I be happy if the better scheduled the 4 we have now. Two slams 3 weeks apart when there are only 4 is stretch.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Re: Does Tennis Need A 5th Slam?

Yes we do need a 5th grand slam -- the Serbia Open.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

Spain, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, China & India >> could all attempt to pull this off someday [probably not in my lifetime though]!

Of the contenders I`d like to see India get the 5th Slam:: China might have a stronger economy but India would create a better atmosphere!!! Also let us not forget that India gave us Sania Mirza

Re: Does Tennis Need A 5th Slam?

Look if there is going to be one it won't be in Europe alright don't be stupid. The chance for China to take it is about 98.77% after I did some calculations.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Re: Does Tennis Need A 5th Slam?

ezekiel is back talking shit.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

This. it would make the slams more meaningful imo if their were the slams seperated by at least two months, better time to recover and more preparation for the biggest events.
