Not sure if that qualifies as "moonballing" but eh, yea sure.

Wow, that rally is pretty embarrassing.

Epic choke from Berdych.

Please embed a youtube clip that automatically starts 3 minutes 43 seconds in. My link is to a specific point in time, which I think is better than embedding a clip and telling people to go to 3:43.

-edit- Do you mind explaining what qualifies as moonballing?

That is the sort of rally that I think is worrying for Raonic's progress. I've noticed that for large parts of matches, he's been stood an incredible distance away from the baseline.

Seriously, how are these coaches earning their wage?

That was such a poor performance from Raonic. Way too passive whenever he had the lead or when it was even.

And did exactly the same against Wawrinka late in the 2nd set . He needs to grow some balls and have a killer instinct. He lets big occasions get the better of him, instead of the other way around.

Great question, how are these coaches making their wage?

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

1) You can edit the video on youtube by uploading the clip yourself and setting it to start at a certain point. Pretty simple...imho.

2) Well, certainly your qualifications are less strict than my own. That was a good neutral point from Isner just working the inside out and waiting for a short ball, it was a percentage play. He's wasn't lobbing the ball and running around 5 feet behind the baseline retrieving...like a certain Spaniard does from time to time. Did Agassi moonball cross court backhands at the later point in his career? That was his percentage play.

Re: Winston Salem F John Isner defeats T.Berdych 3-6 6-4 7-6

good match, and Berdych had what 4 matchpoints! I guessed Isner in 3 so cheers, but did not think it would be this much of a nail biter. Berdych really has some mind wars going on, he almost seems to deliberately lose at the end of some big matches, the way he lost his match points was just atrocious. far from Isner forcing the issue as much as Tomas being really dumb.

Isner will be confident @ US OPEN

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

They need to speed up the courts. Isner losing serve even once is unacceptable.
