Sorry but Raonic's visa was clearly rejected at our borders, then he tried to climb up the wall... he was finally deported to "I Robot" Nation where he has big chances to be president.

First of all, Rosol is way too inconsistent to "lead any group of players. Second, Raonic is not a ballbasher. He is a servebot with a poor ground game.

And thirdly, T-doc, if grandmother had balls she would still be grandma, except with balls.

nole always has the potencial to defeat nadal in harcourts , the same nadal say that even pre-2011 when djokovic playing good against him in harcourts he has all the chances.

the problem with that djokovic is that like federer , he attacking all the time and nadal`s defense provoques the desesperation and mistake of nole , in 2011 nole started to use much more his physicall condition and patience and because nole it`s much more talented player and shotmaker than nadal from the baseline , he obtains the perfect combo to frustrate nadal: a wall from the baseline with much more patience and better shotmaker.

federer has the tennis but no the reguarity from the baseline and physicall conditions of nole , and one handed backhand

If the courts get sped up, don't you think there's a big likelihood of seeing such players as Grand Slam winners?
And if grandmother had balls, she'd be grandpa

The point is, the courts are not gonna be sped up and the most dominant players of this era are not ballbashers. In fact just because of a few upsets as of late people are just having a kneejerk reaction. If the top 3 was composed of Del Potro, Tsonga, Berdych and they had 30+ slams and 50+ masters between them, you'd have a point. The reality?

Clownga: ONE slam final in his career
Berdych: ONE slam final, one masters
Del Potro: ONE slam, no masters

others: journeymen who can cause an upset, but generally lack the game to stay consistent and win big titles.

Re: Rise of the ballbashers - the Rosolization™ of tennis

Rise of ballbashers? How many slams and masters have the ballbashers won recently? Del Potro comes to mind as the most recent slam winner and he's a fluke and MM king who can't win a masters title.

Raonic a ballbasher Dude, this guy is a talentless servebot, he doesn't even know how to hit the ball three times in a row without making an UE.

That could be Murray's thing. He can be the matchpoint tank-man, Nadal the injury-guy and Djokovic the tank/retirement combo master. All fantards then got their excuses for all losses.

After all there is no way that the only one of those 3 that looked like he saved energy, a disinterested, tired-looking Del Potro, did tank when he got routined in 2 sets. Delpo is not a top4 so then he of course got "destroyed". Always like this.

Brilliant logic!
Pretty much Even though he actually has a lot less of this type of losses (vs lower ranked players) than Murray - who has tanked yesterday, vs Chardy, Garcia Lopez, Young, Bogomolov, the list goes on....

Berdych and Del Potro looks more in form right now than the top4. WTF will give more answers. Tsonga hasn't gona anywhere. Tipsarevic can play some ballbashing at times and he is great at it and so can Almagro. They are definitely not "pushers"


Janowicz is a new guy that shows top10 potential. Raonic has always felt like the biggest promise among the "young guns" and he's showing good things. We're heading for exciting times when big serving and big shotmaking is becoming more relevant. For a time it looked like the entire tour would become "Ferrer-type" grinders.


The grinders will remain but it feels better know knowing that players like Söderling/JMDP/Berdych didn't go obsolete. We got up-and-comers who will bring the same kind of big power tennis. For a while it looked like short, weak, junkballers was the only thing the new generation could produce

Now JMDP looks like his 2009 self, Berdych better than ever and Soderling working on his comeback as we speak. Meanwhile the new generation finally showing that it can produce prime ballbasher too
Del Po was just destroyed by Llodra, where as Murray and Djokovic tanked their matches after winning the first set and losing the second narrowly..
