Re: new lucky loser rule?

having an extra rule for withdrawals that happen after the qualies have completed makes zero sense. Even if a withdrawal has not been made public/official, the involved players might still know that...

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

Highly expect TUE abuse to be rampant in tennis as well. It's in cycling, it's certainly in baseball and I see no reason for it not to be in tennis.

The ITF is sadly very quiet on TUE numbers.

Re: If Monfils ran the NYC marathon like Caro Wozniacki . . .

You're asking about the marathon time of a guy who regularly looks dead tired and like he's running on fumes after....4 games of tennis?

Re: Predict the H2H between Cilic 2.0 and Nadal?

Cilic 2.0? One good tournament in the vast majority of cases doesn't suddenly completely transform you.

Time for Roger to tell the ATP higher-ups that he won't have any of Lu being banned.

Re: Any news on when Cedrik-Marcel Stebe will return?

Most recent bit of news from him is an interview in which he said he was hoping to come back in Sarasota in April. Obviously that did not quite work out. Hip problems can be a bish.

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

Re: Tianjin CH QF: V. Rudnev d. M. Ledovskikh 2-5ret.

Why didn't he just play to a loss? Or did he notice he'd have to try far too hard to lose because he thought Rudnev had no intention of winning either?

Re: R. Nadal: "Center court was a little bit different. The clay [needs to] be fixed"

Re: R. Nadal: "Center court was a little bit different. The clay [needs to] be fixed"

Nothing wrong with what he's saying. A good clay court is one that has been laying for a while.

Re: Oeiras QF: Berdych def. Leo Mayer 3-6 6-4 6-4

That was awful stuff by Berdych. He can do so much better. No way should he lose seven straight games from 3-1 to 3-6, 0-2 and then again 4 straight games from 2-0 40-0 to 2-4 against Mayer. The...
