Why 17?
Eurosport showing Giro d'Italia instead of tennis
And Nole isn't playing tomorrow?
I'm not liking this tournament at all.

I'm not looking forward to Nole's match. I think my boy is going to get destroyed.

Re: Nole Chat Part 4 - THE EXAM THREAD!!! survivors and nerds inside

I his first round or somewhere along the way?

I have this horrible image of him somehow defeating Nadal and then losing to Federer in the final but seriously he has to get there first... Is anyone confident?

Yes, very much so. I have the feeling things are coming together for Nole

Yes, I think it's just a lack of confidence, and I'm always cautious about things in general. I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing though.
I don't think caution is a bad thing if it doesn't cause hesitation and lack of confidence. It's possible to be cautious and confident. With driving (and I talk about more extreme driving here, not just going down the highway) I've gotten in trouble more often from hesitation than from boldness. I've never turned a vehicle over or anything like that, but i've certainly scared myself.

Well, we are all hoping that's the case.

Just like everyone is hoping Nole destroys Rafa.

Shelby Rogers!!

An American girl wins a match!

20 1/2 years. An October baby!

And come on Ferrer -- Just close out this match. This Matosevic is ridiculous.

Re: Nole Chat Part 4 - THE EXAM THREAD!!! survivors and nerds inside

Burdette has been playing well lately as well. A win over Vekic on clay tells nothing, but in general her rise is quite amazing


Miško, what happens usually when you are confident? Is it a good sign or a bad sign?

I watched Burdette at IW. She has nice power, but she's a big girl and needs to work on movement. She's just out of college so a bit older than some just starting out, but she's used to competing.

Re: Nole Chat Part 4 - THE EXAM THREAD!!! survivors and nerds inside

I watched her at Charlestone and she seemed decent, she should reach top50 this year if she has some good draws. Her being just out of college is the best in this whole story

Konjuh will be better than Vekić, I just don't see Donna as a number1/top4 (hope she proves me wrong )

Venus this is painful to watch

Re: Nole Chat Part 4 - THE EXAM THREAD!!! survivors and nerds inside

I dont think she will be top 50 this year tbh She would need great results for rest of year which will be tough, But she is 16 soon to be 17 so has whole future in front of her..Can really imagine her,Konjuh,Bouchard,Robson,Towsend,Barty,Keys as top players in 5-6 years

I was talking about Burdette, Vekić will need a repeat of her Tashkent run to keep her ranking as it is.
Agree with your picks, not sure about Townsend/Barty as they seemed to hit a bit of a bump at where they are now, but that's more than normal. Also Konjuh has some sort of a shoulder injury she's playing in Maribor now though, so hopefully they sorted it out. I was so happy when she defeated (U) Radwanska
