Ball is an awful player, even more so these days and Woodbridge is his biggest fanboy... No way he should be let near our Davis cup team next tie

Life is an orange and you're just a little pip.

Wow. Just wow.

This is probably the definition of a fiasco in tennis.

Ball moves on the court between the points like dead tired horse It's a pity because he has solid serve and good technique, he just can't use his weapons due to muggish attitude.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches

Tie-breaks

Saw this, was a massive mugfest. Ball skilfully df'ed to chuck away the 2nd set tiebreak, then went all Mathieu for a while.

Cost me money this one. Should have known a double with mugs such as Marchenko and Ball was coming unstuck though really it was a bet aganst Hidalgo and Riba, both of whom have no business in a hardcourt slam
