No China is not going to dominate football and men's tennis anytime soon.

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".

Bingo. Also, aside from aberrations like Yao they seem to have a relatively small number of people that are athletically or physically elite considering their population.

They all have to run their SFs in about 25 minutes to make sure no one's hamstring explodes before the final.

The former Mrs. Lukas Rosol aka Denisa Rosolova just ran in the 400m hurdles should make the semis.

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".

Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

I guess the question is is the rule change for the false starts undisputedly the most ridiculous ruling ever in history of sports or just a contender for that title.

I'm expecting at least 5 of the 6 to go sub 9.80 in the final, of course if no one is disqualified.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Would be hilarious if Bailey somehow wins with a 9.70 and everyone else wonders WTH just happened.
