Re: WWW Wimbledon Final: [1] Djokovic vs [4] Federer - XXXV

Can't call until tomorrow afternoon as it will depend on whether they will or will not be playing with the roof on.

Weather forecast is not good.

Re: Predict Murray's come back season .

Admittedly the back probably did have some effect at USO this year but being defending champion weighed on him also.

I don't see him being able to defend Wimbledon for this reason especially with...

Re: Which is more shocking: Fed or Murray losing in straights?


I think as time goes on we're going to get these displays from Federer from time to time.

While we know Murray is susceptible to big hitters who are on fire on a particular day it was...

Re: USOpen 2013 main draw

Unless someone can take care of Berdych for him Murray at best is not going past the quarters.

Re: Andy's best chance ever to win Wimbledon

I'm almost hoping Gulbis can KO Tsonga in R2.

Although Andy usually beats Tsonga their matches are invariably close and I have a bad feeling that if they meet in the quarters then this is Tsonga's...

Re: Wimbledon Main Draw Discussions

Unless they start messing with the scheduling (like putting 3 men's matches on the same court) one of Murray, Federer and Nadal will not get a Centre Court match each round.

Re: Murray out of Roland Garros

Even though Andy only reached the quarters last year the 360 points he will lose will put Federer closer to him - provided he at least reaches the semis.

But if Roger was to actually reach the...

Re: US Open QF WWW: Andy Murray vs Marin Cilic

Andy should win but it will be closer than some expect, musn't let his concentration slip.

He will also have to hope that Federer beats Berdych.

I believe Andy can take Fed in the semis but he...

Re: Wimbledon R4: Murray def. Gasquet 7-6(3) 6-3 6-2

Totally wrong about this. On Murray's form in the first three matches I saw a 3 set win for Gasquet.

No question he raised his game considerably today.

Anyone who says that playing Cilic and...

Re: WWW Wimbledon Rd 4: Gasquet vs. Murray

Hate to say it but on what I've seen so far this could be an embarrassing three set defeat for Murray unless his serve suddenly improves greatly.

Bad feeling about this.

Re: 2011 Wimbledon Draw - Discuss (Main Draw is in OP)

So Wimby and the BBC get the draw they want with the chance of a Nadal-Federer final plus the tournament doesn't have to schedule them both on the same day.

If Murray does make the semis with...

Re: The eternal question: is Murray ready to win a grand slam in 2011?

I don't think he is. He needs to get sorted out mentally.

The first two final losses I put down to playing Federer in a Slam but he's an intelligent guy and the fact that he must have known he...

Re: Toronto F Murray d. Federer 7-5 7-5

The draw will be crucial for Murray at USO.

If he comes up against Soderling, Berdych or Verdasco then he's in big trouble.

In fact his best route might be if he drops to #5 this week and gets...

Re: Nadal the favorite for the US Open?

The draw is going to be vital to Murray's chances. He seems to be back in form and it is his best surface.

However, even on hard the chances are that he would get blown away by either Berdych or...

Re: Nadal becomes the first men's player in 30 years to achieve the historic double t

Have to agree.

After the Grand Slam I've always thought the greatest achievement in tennis is to win RG and Wimbledon back-to-back.

Certainly a magnificent feat by Nadal but I don't think you...

Re: Wimbledon SF: Nadal bulldozes Murray 6-4, 7-6(6), 6-4

You can only laugh at some of the comments - bulldozing and thumping? you couldn't have watched the match.

Nadal deserved his win but why on earth did Murray keep hitting his forehand crosscourt?...

Re: Let's recognise that Murray is on fire.....

Will he recover psychologically from having the third-set tie-breaker at his mercy? - the whole court to put that reasonably easy volley into.

I suspect he has the back-up to pull him through and...
