Very one sided. The serving is simply amazing.

Still needs to show more from the backhand down the line, otherwise a brilliant performance.

Ah there's the results thread. Took a while

If ever there was a time to say it, it would be now: NID.

Epic leap smash from Fed there at the end. The confidence is flowing.

Nice job Roger. That MP smash was just :inlove:

Adrian exceeded my expectations, he's got a flashy game but he's horribly inconsistent--but he's French so that's no surprise. His volleys and drop shots, when he made them, were lovely today.

Nice to see Roger's parents sitting together (and dressed so nicely :eek:) since his mom usually says she can't bear sitting by his dad because he talks throughout the entire match :lol:

the predictability of tennis right now is so obvious that it's totally boring. the top 4 virtually get a bye to the semis in every freaking tourney. it's ridiculous. how is it even possible to be enthusiastic about tennis these days?

obviously it should be expected that the top players should beat the lower ranked players but right now the sheer predictability of it all is simply too much. i'm not asking for random mugs 'consistently beating the top players' but simply challenging them more and an upset every once in a while wouldn't be bad. however, it doesn't happen.

wouldnt be surprised if in wimby we have the top 4 in the semis once again. in point of fact, it is pretty much expected to be the case.

Isner took Rafa to five on clay. Troicki should've beaten Murray and Djokovic (US Open). Simon took Federer to five, Ferrer took out Nadal.

And that's all in the last 3 slams, really, they aren't challenging them early on?

right

an era were the surfaces have almost been totally homogenized, full of baseliners who are afraid of going to the net, with just a few 3-4 players who win pretty much everything in sight = strongest era ever??

don't think so

if anything can be said about the current era is precisely the opposite. it's one of the weakest eras in men's tennis, perhaps even the weakest.

You prefer watching net charging retards?

I'm not saying I wouldn't like to see more variety, but playing the way you're thinking just isn't effective anymore, so you want players to play ineffectively just to satisfy?

How do you reckon that? Connors - Borg - McEnroe - Lendl - Vilas was the strongest era of all time.

Basically everything from '79 until about '85 when McEnroe and Connors faded away.

I agree with you that it's a strong era, but not quite the strongest.

long time no see, fabio

to answer your inner question, the truth is, i dunno. the more tennis i watch, the more bored i get. i like to watch matches that are exciting and tourneys with unexpected outcomes. i guess this isn't the right era for that. plus the styles are all quite similar... it seems to me the tennis authorities have made everything in their power to make tennis more predictable, more one-dimensional and overall more boring. i don't remember it was like this when i first started to watch and play tennis in the late nineties. oh well, times change.

it's precisely that. it's ineffective because the guys in charge have slowed down everything. if wimby for example had kept its old grass, we might still see some serve and volleyers in our time. alas, they have become an extinct species.

MatchFederer
06-23-2011, 09:10 PM
Wasn't that enamoured by Fed's performance. He got some nice practice against a flat striking counter-puncher and his offense was always going to make Mannarino suffer, considering the positions he usually resides in on the court and his lack of offensive weapons. Yet Fed still looked mentally vulnerable and agitated in the latter half of the second set.

Anyway, seems like he really badly wants this tournament; I get that vibe.

Hi there! Long time no see indeed.

I asked you that question when, in fact, I was wondering why I was doing the same also. I mean ... Nole's dominance wasn't boring because of him winning everything. It was mainly because he was playing such a robotic tennis ... the only good thing was seeing him outNadaling Nadal ...and not the matches per se, but mostly seeing "the-man-who-never-gets-tired-getting-tired-playing-against the-guy-who-would-always-get-tired".

Nowadays knowing how to use a tennis racket comes second to for how long can you run. It is not tennis, it is cycling ... ;)

There is something uninspiring about Djoker's play in general. He doesn't really produce moments of otherworldly shot-making magic like Federer or Nadal, though he's way more interesting still generally than the latter.

Has it occurred to you that you'd probably have a) to rig the draw and b) to fix the leadup matches to ensure what you want, given the seeding rules... and then you'd be screaming to high heaven about match fixing and draw rigging.

Okay, there's a story for you, the Israeli broadcast of Roger's match was done by a guy called Liron, who is an ex college player and a tennis coach. Apparently he played against Roger when they were both boys (they are the same age), and they drove one car together, and Roger closed the car's door on his finger, causing him a sprain, and Roger to apparently repeatedly apologize. He said he was still complementing a lawsuit.

Not at all mate, there doesn't need to be any match fixing or draw rigging. Any player in the top 100 is capable of beating any other; they just need to stop being so bloody lazy, get a little bit of belief and start playing instead of giving up before they've stepped onto the court. There is just too much bending over going on.

God... Who the hell can stand you?
When anybody says something about your girlfriend Nole your ass starts to burn and you HAVE to comment. Even false shit, man, stop that, Nole is a great player, but he can't be even stand next to Fed.

Damn...

I can't! That's why I start to dislike those players, like Nadal, Djokovic.
I like some aspects of the tennis they play but then you have to deal with fans like these.
Damn...
TopSpinDoctor is more serious now, and now I'm starting to support him, he's obviusly a cool guy, I'd have a beer with him.
But then you got clowntards in every player, and if you don't support that player, it's annoying.

Well... I also consider Fed's mate annoying (And before the Djokovic era it was the same).
But I try so hard not to be that kinda fanboy.

Didn't see this. Looked at the somewhat long result thread, I thought something newsworthy happened in the match. But, no. Same old, same old. Fed is still the most popular and talked about tennis player in the world apparently.

You fedtards believe your own lies until they become real for you. :spit:You do realize that people here consider your recent delusions and ridiculous bias towards your fave on par with Start da Game's lunacy? You are what Word Life would be like if Murray started winning.

And the fact is that Novak still has absolutely nothing on Federer, heck Nole will never even get close to Nadal's accomplishments. And I don't say this because I like Nadal more or anything like that, because I sure don't. I say it because I'm grounded in reality.

That smash on MP was impressive stuff from Federer. Glad I didn't watch the rest of the match as it sounds as though it was a total non-event from the comments on here.

Looking forward to Fed-Nalby in the next round. No doubt it'll most likely end up being a disappointment given David's constant injuries these days, but the idea of this matchup is enough for now.

wouldnt be surprised if in wimby we have the top 4 in the semis once again. in point of fact, it is pretty much expected to be the case.

I would love it.In fact I put some money on it right after draw was made.
But I afraid Roddick has something to say about it.

You can continue to live in the past, I dont prevent that.I'd rather choose the present.
I know that it hurt when the Fed three times bitten the dust in the matches against Djokovic in 2011, when he lost to Gasquet, when Rafa toyed with him again and again and again...
Fed beat a player who is nr 55 in the world.Wtf, I'm impressed.:worship:

shut it, mannarino is the crappiest player i have seen against any top player on a wimbledon court......such lame tennis, his tennis is the very definition of the word 'nothing'......

nadal's draw on a whole is indeed the toughest especially when you consider who he faces from 4th round, learn to assess the sport and its players......sweeting is an atp title winner and mannarino is still a challengers clown.......

So, yeah, if Mannarino played against your God he would have played the match of his life but still Rafael Nadal the Great Spartan was just too good and beat him 6-2 6-3 6-2 :rolleyes:

Great argument with ATP title winners :haha: So you would rather have guys like Flo Mayer, Tipsarevic or Dolgopolov playing against your boy than mugs like Ram, Sweeting or Mello or what :haha:
Please stop with this bullshit, everyone knows you don't mean that seriously. And if you do so, you should go to the next doctor :wavey:

Saw both Mannirino and Sweeting ive this year. The frenchie is by far the better player regardless of his lack of a title win. Mann can do more with ball. He has more flair, hits harder and his pattern of play is harder to read. Sweeting has a kids serve (my god its shit) which automatically makes him a terrible player. His shots, lack depth and power, so in other words he is a poor pusher.

In terms of troubling the top players Mann comes out on top. By some margin actually. Don't get me wrong both players are garbage, it's just Sweeting is much MUCH worse. This is coming from a neutral perspective

Mannarino is playing awful tennis though, Sweeting isn't. At the moment Sweeting is by far the better player.

Didn't see the match, but it apparently was a nice, easy win. Which should be expected from a top player and title candidate.
I'm pleased to see that Fed at least is back in demolishing mode against (much) lesser opponents. No five-setters agaist the likes of Falla this year. :yeah:

Current form? Define to me, what is a "current form".

When Federer wins then he is in good shape and good form, and when the next day he lose to Rafa or Nole, then suddenly his form becomes bad.
In other words, he never loses because his opponent is better but because of "bad form":p.
How many times he was in "bad form" against Rafa? Only 17? :)

This is the strongest era there's ever been, it's just top-heavy. And I'd have that any day over a WTA like free-for-all with random players winning slams and are never to be heard from again after their five minutes of fame.

So true! Like Safina, wtf happened to her? ROFL

And slamless No. 1 Caroline.
