Re: Wilander: 'Kyrgios might be the greatest player of all time once his career is ov

Never in a million years. Absolutely disgusting performance today, no proper tactics, ridicilous shot selection, arrogant behavior, and even blatant tanking in the second set. That´s not what GOATs...

Re: What are your reasons for Nadal's sudden irrelevance on Grass?

Exactly. It is only fair that a player with his shots gets eliminated during the first week. Having said that, I thought he´d do better after winning Suttgart, but no....

A major factor is that...

Re: Roger Federer: Wimbledon 'all-white' clothing rule is too strict

If Bouchard was fined for wearing a black bra, obviously the rule means white, not mostly white. Which is ridicilous, because it wasn´t always like this. I remember the iconic Edberg -and Becker...

Re: Will Nadal even make a Slam Semi Final in 2015?

He won Stuttgart and his game looke pretty good. He also has a good draw and all the pressure that he had during the clay season is gone. He will do better than most expect.

Re: Roger Federer: "It's probably been the best preparation I've ever had for Wimbled

Nadal´s chances of winning the title are slim, but he is much more dangerous than most people give him credit for. His current odds for winning the title are currently 27 at betfair, which is...

Re: Did Roddick retire too early?

Roddick had absolutely nothing left. His serve had become too easy to read and he had lost a lot of the pace it once had. His forehand had become a pushing shot, and his backhand was always a...

Re: Do you think that Tsonga's one-handed BH passing shot is better two-handed BH?

He obviously uses it when he can´t reach the ball well enough with two hands, and does it well, too. DOesn´t mean it would be a great rally shot, or that he could switch permanently to a one-hander.

Re: Roland Garros Final: Stanimal Wawrinka def. Nole Djokovic 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4

Stunning tennis from Stan, absolutely incredible. I knew he was capable of playing like that, but how he kept that high level throughout the match is just amazing. Deserved win, great for tennis.

Re: Why is it hard to imitate Nadal's forehand

The post above has many answers. It´s mostly the grip, and how he "rips" the shot instead of hitting through, like Federer. Federer´s technique is much closer to classic style of tennis, how the game...

Re: Why is it hard to imitate Nadal's forehand

Any coach who would try to teach that technique to a young kid would be stupid and irresponsible. It works for Nadal, but it´s very tough on the arm and techically not very sound (at least in a...

Re: French Open has worst venue of all slams? Update: Metal Panel falls off roof

Just the fact that there are no lights, and every long match with high drama needs to be interrupted makes it a total disgrace.

Re: I don't recall any competitive matches during the first week at all.

There are always many very competitive, great matches at GS´s. One just needs to know what matches to pay attention to. The best matches are usually between a couple of lower ranked players. I rarely...

Re: RG R1: Djokovic def. Nieminen 6-2, 7-5, 6-2

Nieminen didn´t choke at all, he played some great tennis in the second set but Djokovic was just too much. It´s not like every time a player loses after leading, he chokes.

Re: Jarkko Nieminen to retire at the end of 2015 (unofficial)

Retirement is definitely near, but I´d be a little suprised if he would quit after this season instead of trying to make it to Rio, which is right around the corner. Playing at the Olympics has...

Re: Does losing a set 6-7 and blowing several set points hurt more than losing a set

Obviously if you lose a set 6-7 the match is closer than if you lost 0-6. But we´re talking about the mental effect in the two cases, not how good a player´s chances of winning the match are, because...

Re: Who has the best serve in tennis history ?

In his prime he had a decent forehand as well. His serve had good pace, but lacked versatility. One of the biggest reasons he lost later to pretty much all the top players is because they (especially...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada could test using hair

Re: Romanian player Patrick Ciorcila(1092) about ITF conditions (+shocking pic)

Re: Who is more talented: Jack Sock or Grigor Dimitrov?

Dimitrov is more talented, but Sock seems to be playing more steadily at the moment, his level doesn´t dip like Dimitrov´s and he beats players he should beat, unlike Dimitrov.
