Q. Do you feel like you can still get better, though?

ROGER FEDERER: Same question, right?


Q. Yeah. Just be clear.

ROGER FEDERER: Is that your headline, or...

this made me chuckle a bit.


I think we're hesitating between "In Diana Jones and the Temple Poon" and "Breast Side Story".

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

what up everko? what are your thoughts on the events unfolding at melbourne park? first the women: i think its amazing that 2 chinese women are in the semis. its a great story for them and for china.

and what about the men? do we have a murray vs fed final? can murray do the near impossible? its truly amazing that after all these years, still only one player has really proven time and again that he can take on Fed in slams. and he cant stay helahty to save his life.

semifinal streaks mean nothing at this juncture of his career. he is clearly shooting for something higher arkulari.

the way he is playing, he is a lock to make the finals of all 4 slams again where he will try take his best shot.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

I don't like the players remaining. But I hope Cilic or Tsonga can win.

I think Murray will win though, Federer will be outplayed by an in-form murray.

I wonder why China has no good men players yet good women players.

I know CD, but he still has two big roadblocks ahead of him: Tsonga and either Murray/Cilic

Of course the moronic haters (because there aren't intelligent ones, you can dislike but hate is just the work of an inferior mind) will say that he got the easiest draw ever and that everyone else on tour is a choker, a loser, etc

I can't say I'm satisfied with Roger's performance but since Rafa is out, I would like him to claim his 16th Slam

I don't think so. We own them mentally now.

and even if we lose, we still beat them in the big time match

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

i keep believing in murray and he keeps disappointing at slams. i am also not sure if he has enough game. i have to see to believe.

he returns well and moves well for a chap who is 6 foot 4 but can he go toe to toe for 5 long sets with Fed at a slam final? that remains to be seen.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

what's up? counting the days till Sydney?

so CD, your money is on Roger? I still think he can be derailed by either Tsonga or Murray but I wouldn't be surprised if he won the whole thing

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

Djokovic was ill

Q. What was the problem with your health?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, first, I would like to congratulate Jo. He played a great match. Deserved to win.

It was unfortunate that I couldn't perform on the level that I wanted to in the fourth and fifth set. I don't want to find excuses for my loss, but, you know, I went to vomit and I had diarrhea before the match. Just a terrible feeling.

You know, it's been a great tournament for me, so it's just a bad way to ‑‑ not to be able physically go through the whole match.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
