Since Rosol and Minar are, he should be.
But, I believe that none of them should be recognized as DC winners as none of them played a live DC rubber all year.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

In another thread it was mentioned that Argentinians have bought a hardcourt for a potential DC final against Spain. So that's obviously a temporary hardcourt, but what are temporary HCs like, how do they differ from permanent ones?

Well my answer never says that commitment players are obliged to count ATP500s.

Germany had done this a few times. It always was Rebound Ace on wood panels. But I'm not sure what the differences are.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

When was the last time you saw an grandslam singles final with empty seats(no crowd)? Have you ever seen something like that?

If not, then answer for any ATP World tour Singles Final?

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

is there a thread that has a net worth of the top guys?
I read on this site that Murray's net worth is almost double Djokovic, despite Nole's greater success and prize money.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

what was the shortest 5 setter in history?
Fognini and Bautista Agut are currently fighting in the 5th set after only 2h 17min of playing time...

edit:
this thread helps: Shortest 5-set match on clay?

edit 2: game is over after 2h 32min (152min) playing time.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Is it possible to find full press conferences from AO 2013 somewhere? Not just the highlights (or w/e you wanna call it) from the official site.

Sorry for not being clear in my question. Transcribed interviews are nice, but I was looking for a full video footage from press conferences (not the short highlights) I kinda assume they are not available anywhere, but it doesn't hurt to ask hehe.

Still ty for the link though!

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

What's the difference between unforced errors and forced errors, and why does no one care about forced errors?

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Because unforced errors are nobody but the player's own fault, while forced errors are caused by very good play on the opponent's side - not good enough to be an outright winner, but good enough to force the error?

It's all very subjective imo.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

AO Practice Courts question

I have a question to anyone who's attended the AO before. I went to the AO for the first time a couple of days ago. In the practice courts there's a schedule as to which player will be practicing on which court at a certain time so the crowd go see them for 30mins or an hour depending on how long a player wants to practice. I was lucky enough to watch a few players – JMDP, Tipsarevic, Berdych, Raonic, Sharapova, Williams, Verdasco as scheduled – however when Federer was scheduled to practice, he didn't show up. Does this happen often?
