Melzer : What Are Your Expectations For Him in 2012

this dude is 30+. he is a defending u.s. open doubles chanpion. and today he showed he still has major game in singles as well when he is healthy and fit.

he is not traveling with a coach. its just him and his physio.

are you impressed with his game and his fitness? how much more noise can he make in 2012?

what are your own expectations for melzer for the rest of 2012?


you have the floor so dont be shy.

Re: Melzer : What Are Your Expectations For Him in 2012

i saw something from him today that really impresssed me: he was more fearless than ever so that was the first thing that caught my eye. he was aggressive when he knew he had to be.

he served well and returned well pretty much for the entire match. he never let his intensity and focus drop.

he also looks more fit. i think he looks like a man on a bit of a mission this year.

Bandwagon thread.

Same as usual, have some good wins, awful losses and playing sexy tennis mixed in with the bizarre stuff.

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".

How come Melzer hasn't won a Slam yet? He has a complete game. Can someone dumb it down for me?

Re: Melzer : What Are Your Expectations For Him in 2012

Sometimes, he lets his guard down too much meaning he puts himself down, he gives up sometimes easily and he goes for broke at the wrong times, that usually happens when he plays against the top 4, i mean the guy is very talented but to play against the likes of murray, djokovic, nadal and federer, is a very tough task for a guy like him. He has to be prepared mentally, physically and emotionally when it comes down to winning a slam.

Re: Melzer : What Are Your Expectations For Him in 2012

he was a late bloomer. he is reasonable threat in singles and doubles.

it will be hard to win a slam at this age. slams are not easy to snatch.

Re: Melzer : What Are Your Expectations For Him in 2012

The Memphis title could very well be his last hurrah . I hope not though....

Just needs to stay healthy for a decent period of time, which will be difficult given his age.

Re: Melzer : What Are Your Expectations For Him in 2012

He will sleep his way through the WTA, going from #30 to the top baby!

I'm kidding, I can see his appeal for the female players. He is quite good-looking.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

I like that flag in your nickname ._.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)
