Sensible tennis journalism

For all the talk about shitty tennis journos, I thought I'd like to point out an author that appears to know what he's talking about.

Re: Sensible tennis journalism

Pretty scary stuff, especially considering he got the set numbers right as well. He's played it safe for today, though.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

picked serena to lose... quite brave, no?

Re: Sensible tennis journalism

It says the guy's been covering Slam tennis since 1953, I hope he'd have learned something by this point. But still, good on him

that said, he wasn't quite so spot on for previous days

Re: Sensible tennis journalism

I got 4/4. I even get the sets right. But only for the men's draw. I thought yesterday's matches are quite predictable.

But, this guy can predict the women's matches too. I guess that puts him on another level.
