Re: Let's settle it once and for all MTF. Is Federer playing the best tennis of his l

This is perhaps true, but it doesn't explain why Federer has been losing even to lesser players after 2010 (in Slams), whereas before, he didn't really. Not nearly as ofter, at any rate.

Re: Let's settle it once and for all MTF. Is Federer playing the best tennis of his l

I would like someone to explain to me the notion of 'increased competition'. Just who is counted in that increased competition? A list of names which constitute that increased competition would be...

Re: What if Federer loses third GS final in a row to Djoko

So you agree that he has declined a lot? I mean, the other possible explanation is that Cilic, Seppi and Gulbis constitute the extremely tough competition of this era, see.

Re: What if Federer loses third GS final in a row to Djoko

I actually (almost) agree with the above. Federer is seriously lacking in balls department to be called 'the greatest' unequivocally. I personally care more about the type of tennis displayed, than I...

Re: Serious Discussion : Cilic proved that his USO Title was no fluke.

Why is cilic constantly refered to as a 'doper'?

We simply don't know that. All we know is that they found traces of a certain 'banned substance' in his system. It COULD mean that he IS a doper -...

Re: Djokovic: Federer is playing the best tennis he has ever played.

Oh come on. :devil: It has everything to do with Novak. If Federer is indeed 'as good as ever', but the 'competition is so much better' - then, since Novak is #1 by quite a large margin, it speaks...

Re: Djokovic: Federer is playing the best tennis he has ever played.

Replace 'simplest' with 'one that suits my biases the best', and you are spot on. :devil:

Obviously the reason why you lean towards that 'simple' answer isn't based on logic and observation, but...

This debate is pointless. Of course they KNOW more than an average keyboard warrior (BTW, you do consider yourself amongh those, or do you perhaps not?) - but whether they will actually SAY what they...

Re: What if Federer loses third GS final in a row to Djoko

I don't see where I have 'downplayed' Rafa on clay. Also, I don't see where I said Federer was 'so incredible' on grass. Which makes me wonder - who are you arguing with, and over what exactly? I...

Re: What if Federer loses third GS final in a row to Djoko

Even though it can't be denied that Nadal is psychologically tougher than Federer (and even Novak, in the biggest of matches) - these numbers don't tell the whole story.

Take Nadal 6-2 over Fed. 4...

Re: When a player's 2nd serve wrongly called out, why...

Ok ok, perhaps I misread it, you didn't actually say that the umpire MUST decide that the point will be replayed. It's not critical anyway, we agree otherwise: to 'replay' the point means to start it...

Re: When a player's 2nd serve wrongly called out, why...

Because that's what it means to 'replay' something: do it all over, from the beginning.

The beginning of a point is the 'serve', and the serve consists of two attempts. Thus, when you 'replay the...

Because you are not thinking clearly. It doesn't have so much to do with 'fairness', but with the simplicity of the rules. There are no zillion ways to replay the point - only one, starting with the...

It is not sophistry. Like someone said, what if a referee calls a good ball 'out', and the challenge proves it was in? Obviously the point needs to be replayed; but what if the point got off of a...

Re: When a player's 2nd serve wrongly called out, why...

Wrong. The point is never 'replayed' if it was in fact OUT (but mistakenly called in). If it is out, then it is out, no reason to replay anything.

Replaying is only if the ball is IN, but the...

Re: Top-10 W/L records breakdown—Active players—Federer with 50 wins at GS

Actually, it shows how incredible he is - on clay. His percentage is heavily boosted by his amazing record on clay. Outside of clay, he is 59-51, or 53.64%. Still great, just behind MAndy, but not...

Re: Is men and women getting equal pay in Grand Slams Fair?

Re: Is men and women getting equal pay in Grand Slams Fair?

Disagreed on many accounts.

Players don't get paid 'based on how far they advance' just because there's some cosmic rule that says it must be so. But because those who advance further, they are...

Re: How many more slams will Federer win?

I feel he has maybe 76 more slams in him, give or take 10 or so.

Re: AO QF: Fumbling Federer Goats Tyrant Tsonga 7-6(4) 4-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3

1 point away, as in, 1 lucky return winner, like the one Stan did the other day and was called out - even though it was in.

Whoever can see that match (USO SF 2011), super-peak Novak V2.0 turbo...

It doesn't matter how he feels.

I've watched him in 2004, and I'm watching him today. I see that he's not as powerful, defending OR attacking. Perhaps he is tactically (sometimes, not always...

Ladies still prefer hair - they just don't like the horseshoe :haha: baldness - or even worse, the comb-over, the proof that men can be such blind idiots.

So, if you can't have nice, firm, dense...
