Re: The Shanghai tournament 2013

Several things at play in this match and recent ones and they're all too predictable as I've seen these components of a downward spiral so many times before.

1. This new approach he has is the only...

Re: Us Open 2013 - The Beast Has Been Awoken Inside Roger

You could tell from the very beginning that Federer was nervy, not feeling it, and as always has been the case in tennis, the opponent feels it. I'm sure Robredo was just as shocks as we were by the...

Re: Cincinnati 2013

He simply hasn't. He was tremendous in this tournament since just about everything in his game was working. His return off of both serves was really good (he was aggressive with BH returns as well...

Re: Andy Murray once bageled Rafael Nadal in practice onclay

You can't read too much into this, but one thing I have noticed about Murray is how good of a practice player he is. Obviously he's a great player on tour, but he's often just that much better in...

Re: Is del potro the greatest break points saver of all time?

If you look at the all-time lists, the top break-point savers all have huge serves. The only ones in the top 11 who don't are Federer and Nadal, with Federer still having a very good serve. Nadal...

Lightbulb Re: Navratilova: Why men’s matches should be best-of-three sets

The AO, RG, and USO have all employed Bof3 in early rounds in the past. As far as I know Wimbledon is the only slam that hasn't.

Even though Bof3 and Bof5 are both "still tennis," the psychological...

Re: Has Anyone ever won a tournament losing more points than they won?

As mentioned, seems like it would be very difficult to do unless there were a couple of 7-6, 1-6, 7-6 type scores with lopsided TBs to boot. Although such occurrences take place more times than one...

Re: ♕* Rotterdam 2013 ♕ Let's have glory again *♕ - R2 RF d.De Bakker QF - Bennetteau

The serve and FH were absent again. Even in the earlier matches, which he won easily, he was on his back foot in so many rallies because he was giving up ground with his loopy FHs that lacked depth,...

Re: Sao Paolo R2: Nadal 2.0 survives Joao Souza 6-3 6-4

Nadal still working on getting the timing right on the returns. I think he felt comfortable enough on serve that he wasn't going to go all out on return. In the past, most players would be lucky to...

Re: ♕*** Rotterdam 2013 ♕ Let's have glory again ***♕

This was how he played his FH during most of the Australian Open this year and it hurt him in many, many rallies, allowing his opponent to get the upper hand. In addition to this, we really didn't...

Re: Has there even been a top 4 seed with an easier route to the semi's than Murray?

You're right about the generally predictable, and hence boring for some, nature of early rounds at slams today compared with slams in the '90s or the early 2000s, but this is exactly what the powers...

Re: Has there even been a top 4 seed with an easier route to the semi's than Murray?

That's primarily due to the implementation of the 32 seed system that came about at the tail end of Sampras's career in 2001 as opposed to the 16 seed system that Sampras played in for most of...

Re: If Djokovic stays the No. 1 until October, he will overtake Nadal...

As much as people like to harp on and on about how much Nadal has taken away from Federer (and Nadal has, to be sure, e.g., perhaps two calendar year slams, perhaps 10 slam wins in a row, etc.,...

Re: *************** Barclays ATP World Tour Finals - F vs Djokovic *************

This is definitely true as is the fact that there were just a few points here and there that turned around the season for the "worse" for Djokovic. There's always luck involved in sports, especially...

Re: *************** Barclays ATP World Tour Finals - F vs Djokovic *************

To be honest, I don't think Djokovic's level dropped all that much, if any. Now, there are certain big matches where he didn't play well, but I saw no overall decline in any part of his game. ...

Re: *********** Barclays ATP World Tour Finals - ROG is the Runner-Up ***********

It was a pretty good end to a great season. What Federer did this year at the age of 31 is not to be taken lightly. Winning six titles and making ten finals in the TMS era, i.e., post 1990, is...

Re: Paris F: (4) Ferrer def (Q) Janowicz 6-4 6-3

Fantastic week for both players. Though it doesn't seem to mean anything for most on here, Janowicz's run means that he does not have to play challengers for a long while (maybe ever, who knows?)...

Re: After The Valencia Open...

Sampras was out in 2002, Goran was out in 2004, and Agassi was out in 2006. So in 2007, it was just Fed/Hewitt before Nadal won in 2008.

Re: ★ ***** US Open 2012: Championship State of Mind:R4 Federer vs.Fish *****★

I hope Mardy is O.K.; the ambiguous and vague nature of the announcement as opposed to a simple announcement of a specific injury is worrisome.

As for Federer, this probably doesn't help him too...

Re: US Open R3 : Murray def. Lopez 7-6 (5) 7-6 (5) 4-6 7-6 (4)

I thought that if, if FLo served at 65% + and played really well all-around then maybe he could get to a TB or two and makes things tough, but to do so serving at only 50% was really surprising. You...

Re: USO '12 R2: Awesome Roddick humiliates Tomic 6-3 6-4 6-0

Roddick has served really big the first two matches at this year's USO, bigger than he has in a while. There have been way too many matches this year where Tonic didn't want to compete. He had so...
