No. I never deal with disappointment by crying, sports or not sports, more through introspection if it makes any sense.

I liked it overall. He had a pretty easy draw in the first four rounds, but he won all his matches rather easily, which is great considering how he usually drops random sets in early rounds - he was far more solid and consistent than usual.

Of course the match with Federer is the most important one here, imo that match was the best of the tournament along with Djokovic vs Wawrinka. I think he played a quite good match, he was returning serve rather well for his standards and his BH was way more solid than usual, you could see some off season work there. He still had some bizarre tactical choices at times that ended up costing him the match, but he could easily have won, it was a very close match - he actually broke Federer more times than Fed broke him, and the SF vs Murray showed how hard it was for Fed to beat him, he was clearly a bit fatigued. He didn't play even close to his best but he was solid - that was great to see and an encouraging sign.

He also looked fitter/in better shape overall, much better than the shadow of a player he was in late 2012. I hope this was not just a 'fluke' and that he continues to work hard with Rasheed, 2013 could be a great year for him. Wimbledon should be his main target, he can do well on the clay too but it's at Wimbledon that he must look to play his best tennis.

Re: Q&A With Mark Lenders.

Have you ever tried a hard drug (coke, heroin, meth)? If so, what did you think of the experience?

Re: Q&A With Mark Lenders.

Whats your favourite match-up in tennis?

What did you make of today's final?

If Bayern were to play Dortmund tomorrow at a neutral ground. Who would win?

1-Djokovic vs Del Potro when both are fit and playing well, which has unfortunately been rare so far.

2-




Horrendous. Courts need to be sped up; not only do finals like these make for repetitive and boring viewing, but these guys will pay for all this grinding once their careers are done (a point Nadal actually made some time ago, he knows post tennis life will be painful).

3-This season at this point in time, I'd have to go with Bayern, they've been looking ominous. It's 55-45 though, Dortmund tend to cause Bayern a heap of troubles.

1-Of course not .

2-If the goal is to maintain the current standard of moderation, anyone will do really, it can hardly get any worse. If they want to be serious about it for once (though I doubt it), then anyone capable of rational and unbiased thought. Stat gurus on the forum come to mind.

As explained previously on this thread, my username is taken from an anime/manga (Captain Tsubasa) character - see video on my sig, that is Lenders - and since said anime/manga is Japanese I decided to go with the Japanese flag

My real name is Manuel
