Novak, will send the clown home in the sf. I don't expect some 5 set battle either.

I hope Roger can make it. It would be the only consolation for me and the only thing that could keep me watching this tournament. I don't want it to turn into an embarrassing mugfest.

It's funny how close he came... But ain't gonna make it.
Tipsy will win quarters.
And what a stamp it will be...

In another turn of events I would cheer for this one to happen... But it's just Nole's time.

His chances are bigger now, being world number 2.
He defend less than 1000 points between Canada - Shanghai.
Nolevic defend something like 3600 points.

And we're not talking about the olympics.


I don't say he WILL. I say he has so many chances. If he plays well (something that we'd never know), he can do it.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

I'm sure ATP we'll boost his chances, putinn Nadal in Noles half all the time.

But it's questionable how long will Nadal stay third, to say Fed- second...

Clay season is done and HC season is coming. Who does well on clay and who does well on HC?

I'm not sure about Feds willpower, if gets denied for no1 this time.
He may give it litlle more run, but Simply it's past his time. He lacks willpower to push that hard- and Nadal is still bitin pretty hard.

It depends on Wimby. If he beats Djoker, or gives him a hard test (obviously this match isn't a done deal, but it's hard to see their opponents beating them) then it'll get likely as he's now #2 and has a lot less points to defend than Djoker, but if not (say if he gets upset or it ends up like it did at the FO) it'll be tricky.

Nadal losing to Rosol makes the task a lot more easier, but it's still up to him.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend
