I know for many on mugstennisforums, the focus is not on the individual player but tennis.
So how has tennis fared this year?
Did tennis win when Murray won his first grand slam in US 2012 (answer = yes)?
Has Jerzy Janowicz saved tennis in Paris?
Did Nishikori beating Raonic save tennis?
Has tennis lost or gained by Nadal's injuries? Did Rosol save or lose tennis?
1. A new slam winner was good for tennis. That it happened to be Murray was not good but oh well. 0,5p to tennis
2. Yes JJ has saved tennis in Paris. His playing style is a fresh breath of air to tennis. 1p to tennis
3. No Nishikori beating Raonic did nothing for tennis. But Nishi facing Raonic for a title was good for tennis. 0,5p to tennis
4. Yes what Rosol did was good for tennis. Nadal's injuries aren't good for tennis though. Much better when he plays and get roasted. 1p-1p=0p
3p to tennis total. But now comes the real test today.
Ferrer winning over JJ? 1p for new M1000 winner. -2p for vulturing. -1p for style
JJ winning: 1p for new M1000 winner, 5p for qualifier surprise victory, -2p for being hacker
So tennis either ends up with 1 point or 7 points. If JJ wins not even a shitty WTF can cause Tennis to lose. But if Ferrer wins and WTF goes bad well who knows, Tennis might end the year on minus. Then Bye better play good in 2013 to pay off the debts.
