Hopefully Raonic can lift his ground game soon.

Wimbledon,it's the quickest slam at the moment,but Raonic has to inprove a lot more.

He's a quick learner.Hopefully he can realize something after several clashes with the top 4 this year.

Finally. Ive been waiting for this moment for a long time. ATP really needs some variety concerning different slams winners in each major.

Fat chance although it would be great.

False dawn, too bad the ATP/ITF won't speed up the faster surfaces slightly it won't take away from the game.

Lets see what happens next season.

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".

If they slowed down the clay, as it should be and speed up the hardcourts it would help the game.

Soderling winning 2013 RG would really be more worthy than Ferrer, it really would leave a smile on my face.
Tsonga has too many glaring weaknesses in his game to win a Grand Slam (backhand, movement, ROS).
That's sad because he has the serve, the forehand,the net play and the agressive and strong mindset required to win a GS.
But with defenders of the quality of Nadal, Djoker,Murray or even Federer, it's fucking hard for a guy like him to win a GS.
He and Berdych probably would have won at least one during the 90's.
