Tennis is the winner.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Steps might not be sexy himself but his tennis certainly is. Loved his volleys at the tail end of the 3rd.

I would be banned if I said what I felt in that last game.

Cilic But I am glad he gets some rest. He's been playing too much imo

You're too young to know, but once upon a time you didn't have to scratch around looking for a fugly old Czech in the tail end of the season to see that kind of tennis.

Good for tennis when Cilic loses. Not so good when Steoanek wins.

so this is a dilemma pickle

Re: Basel QF: Sexy def. Cilic 4-6 6-4 6-3

it's absolutely fantastic how cilic can't get some confidence from win like yesterday.
he made unrealistic bad shots on break points again.
in the start on the match cilic was absoultely superior but come on, that is cilic. he had ball for 5:1 and after that stepanek was a little bit better.

Cilic should be banned from tennis for having one of the ugliest games on tour.
