Re: I want to hug Djokovic...I hope he wins a French Open.

I think Djokovic kinda cracked under the prospect of a career grand slam. He's been the favorite or one of the favorites for years now and he's been close a couple of times now. It's like when...

Re: Stan vs Murray: 2 Slams

His record and general level of play in slam finals outmatches Murray's, that's for sure.

Re: Who do you *want* to win tomorrow?

I don't really care who wins, but I'm glad we've got two nice players in the final. Tennis wins either way.

Re: Who Will Stop Djokovic Getting 18 Slams?

I'm in doubt about the young guns as well, I think that it is becoming harder and harder for young players to make a mark on the tour nowadays with the big four having a 10-man support staff to...

Re: First Time Murray Has Won 2 Sets Against Nole Since Wimbledon 2013

I don't think it's really about the service. Djokovic dominated Murray in the last set because practically every point Djokovic was allowed to dictate from the baseline, whilst Murray was at least...

Re: Who Will Stop Djokovic Getting 18 Slams?

I agree with you in the sense that the remainder of Novak's career trajectory could go two ways - he could do an Agassi or have the same trajectory most players have: his achievements...

Re: FIFA Officials Arrested on Corruption Charges; Face Extradition to U.S.

I have my doubts.. the most important thing is that at least more than five of the biggest countries abandon the FIFA. The whole UEFA seems doubtful: Russia is pro Blatter, Germany has ruled out a...

Re: Kyrgios will never be top 10!!

Kyrgios played a pretty good match considering the elbow problem he had. His serving was way below its usual level to trouble Murray.

In the first set he was serving better and he really troubled...

Re: Most difficult shot in tennis?

I agree. Backhand smash is difficult, sure, but in my experience if you focus on placement over power it's not that hard to hit a decent backhand smash. A tweener on the other hand is near impossible...

yeah.. kind of in the same way that Joey Barton is more entertaining to watch than Lionel Messi.

Re: Federer: Novak in the top 4 of all the time? I can't reply[disappoint all the oth

really? It's one thing to give this example to prove that it is possible that Djokovic could pull off such a feat, but you really expect him to do it? There's far too many variables that all have to...

Re: French Open has worst venue of all slams? Update: Second Match Suspended

Why do you think it is so blatantly obvious that everyone that likes RG must be a Nadaltard? Some reasonable arguments have been made here. I'm a Federer fan and I prefer RG and Wimbledon miles over...

Re: French Open has worst venue of all slams?

seeing as the French Open does not boast hard courts it can by definition not be the worst venue.

Re: Federer's RG 2015 Outfit.

I had a good laugh at this yesterday during his match. It's even worse than Barcelona's away kits of the past two seasons.

Re: Sally Kirkman says Nadal has the best chance, and "the favourite will not win"

I don't know what you're being so smug about. I have taken a look into this load of utter BS by comparing the ESPN analysts to yours.

Re: 2015 Roland Garros R1: (2) Federer def. Falla 6-3 6-3 6-4

It wasn't bad in the rest of the match (I watched a large part until midway through the third set). Federer needs to work on getting his shots deep - a lot of them ended up around the service line,...

Re: Did the current decade start in 2010 or 2011?

Actually it's not as stupid as it seems. It irritates me that the Gregorian calendar is inconsistent in this way - according to Wikipedia, the 210th decade does start at January 1st, 2000, but the...
