Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Milos made nearly no mistakes in that entire 2nd set. Fed just upped his level. Some of you don't really seem to understand what it means to choke.

Also, we can be happy that we don't see much of that serve&volley crap anymore, that is the most boring tennis ever. Even watching Gilles Simon is more interesting.

Don't worry, in this forum, if you lose, you are a choker, no matter how well your opponent was playing.

It's true that Mac and Edberg were better volleyers though, that much is obvious.

Who? Raonic? The quality of Borg, Conners, Lendl etc. wasn't as good as Raonic?! Don't think that's the case.

Federer is not a bad volleyer - he's just not incredible like some people think he is. Nadal would have done better serve/volleying tonight than Fed I think - how many has Fed netted? Kudos for trying a different tactic though.

S&V was more prevalent then. No doubt if Federer had played in 90s he would have developed his volleying more.
Thankfully there is not much S&V around anymore and hopefully it will stay that way.
