Oh wait...this topic is about luck? My bad. I thought it was about match rigging and legacy-making by the ATP.

Re: Do you believe in luck in tennis?

There is certainly luck to SOME degree but I never feel a particular situation is either no luck or entirely luck.. Because take a netcord ball that lands short for a winner as a scenario. Many people will instantly say "what luck" but remember, there are so many factors involved. Perhaps the player hitting the ball really had to chase for the shot to begin with, which certainly isn't luck. The player could have hit the ball a tad bit lower and the ball would have just stopped dead at the net rather than trickle over the tape, so that isn't really luck. He could have played the right amount of spin for the ball to crawl over the net, that isn't really luck either. I could go on but you get my point. Yes, there are many "lucky" events that happen to a player, but if you look at those situations objective, you can point out many things the player to get to that event during a point which wouldn't be attributed to luck.

Of course might just be verbiage, but I always prefer the term "fortunate" rather than "luck" for tennis. Luck has a kind of negative connotation to me, and implies that "luck" created the whole situation while having some "fortune" seems to me to add to a player's scenario rather.

This isn't the biblical times. Go spew your usual stupidity and hatred elsewhere.

So the ATP pay these players like Djokovic and Nadal to let Federer have the glory? Interesting.

Oh the fucking utter irony of your comments. Please continue, you'll just have to make a new account soon enough.

Re: Do you believe in luck in tennis?

Noserer has been the luckiest player of all time, closely followed by Mugray. RG2009/USO2012 were easily 2 of the biggest cases of luck in the open era.
