Re: Why do people like Roger Federer?

Seeded Youngsters at SW19

Kyrigos, Tomic, Sock and Thiem should all be seeded. It's surely been a long time since so many youngsters have been seeded.

Re: Nadal OUT of the Australian Open

This reminds me of the Michael Jackson's O2 London performances. First they announce the Tour and everyone is suspicious because of recent rumors of his being incapable of performing anymore. Then...

Re: Federer vs Djokovic. Who is the favourite for the Olympics?

To quote the Serbian Soothsayer from the Mountaintop:

Re: Will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record?

If no one cares about semis, then let's move up to finals. The Top 2 records are Fed with 10 and 8 consecutive finals. Djoker stands at 3.

Re: Nadal, Federer rift emerges at Australian Open

Re: Were slams in 2011 most homoganizated ever?

When 25-shot rallies become the norm at Wimbledon and the US Open instead of an oddity, then yes, the surface no longer matters. It's as though they've taken the lightning-fast courts at SW19 and...

Re: When is the USTA going to put on a roof seriously?

They should completely demolish Armstrong, and build a new 15-20,000 arena with a roof from the ground up, it could open in 2013. Then retro-fit a smaller Ashe by 2015.

How can anyone even consider this a "weak" era?

Re: Agassi still has the most complete resume in tennis' history

The ATP rates winning an Olympic gold medal as only slightly more prestigious than reaching the semi-finals of a slam, so why would having an Olympic gold medal raise someone to GOAT status?
