Re: Chennai R2: Bedene def. [4] Klizan 7-6(3), 6-7(3), 7-6(2)

Good confidence-boosting win for the British #4. He has a solid enough game. I can't see why he isn't consistently rankedin the top 60-ish.

Re: WWW 2016 Roland Garros [May 16 - Jun 5] and Discussion (Main Draw in Post #1)

I think this FO is the closest since the rise of Nadal. I consider all of the top 4 seeds to have a decent chance and none to be absolute favourite.

Re: 2016 Live Commentary Thread vol. 2

I don't think I've ever seen Raonic execute a gameplan as well as this. Perfect tennis for this opponent.
