Has Tennis won this year?

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?
etc

Favourite: Andy Murray - US OPEN 2012 GRAND SLAM CHAMPION

Like: Juan Carlos Ferrero, Kei Nishikori, Novak Djokovic

Dislike: Nikolay Davydenko, Milos Raonic, John Isner

1-No, it lost.

2-No, he might if he wins tomorrow though.

3-No, Nishikori winning is always glorious for tennis, but Raonic winning wouldn't have been bad for tennis either.

4-It has lost.

Re: Has Tennis won this year?

Tennis wins every year it exists. Don't get it twisted.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Tennis will win when Jan Hajek, RRH, Adrian Ungur and Horacio Zeballos get into the top 100 and finish there this season. If these things happen, along with Pippo and Simone clinching top 100 positions, it will be a successful year.

Re: Has Tennis won this year?

Oh, and Roger got the #1 record, won Wimbledon again and tied Pete for the record there, so yes, this has been an amazing year in that regard.

1) Yes
2) No, he needs to beat Ferrer.
3) Yes
4) Neutral; Rosol saved tennis, but losing Nadal for a while is a bad thing (even if he would have ended up a non-issue at the USO).

So yes, tennis has won, but truly, Ferrer needs to lose tomorrow to really cement it.

Re: Has Tennis won this year?

1) I don't like Murray but maybe he deserved it after the Olympics. If Ferrero and Roddick won a slam why not Murray
2) Tennis can't be saved only by 1 player's fluke run. Even if he wins the title it's still kind of same. But it's always good to see some fresh air in the tour and a young gun coming out of nowhere. If he'll keep that level or not it's to be seen next year
3) Youngster vs youngster, more talented guy beat the serve-bot so yes
4) Tennis can't win if Nadal is injured. Not even if you're a hater

Re: Has Tennis won this year?

Nadal brings something to the game no-one else can recreate but the top 2. So whenever he's out it's terrible for tennis. Real tennis fans know this. Nadal's presence this year post-Roland Garros has been missed.

Re: Has Tennis won this year?

People who make statements such as Rosol saved tennis, are not real tennis fans.

I think post-Rosol has been awesome and I won't give too much of a crap if he doesn't ever return Shoot me. After RG tennis never seemed in such a disillusion. Now it's on the way out of the doldrums (with plenty of work still to do of course)

FYI the correct answers are:

Yes
Yes
Yes
Tennis lost; tennis gained

Give yourself a mark out of 5.

Maybe because you're a Murray fan and you know it would've been much tougher for him to win a slam with Nadal in shape around. Maybe
