Re: WTF London 2015

Jamie really surprised me with his play, he's got great hands and reads the game really well, a natural doubles player... Herbert also's got great hands and talent, but he tends to make more errors...

Re: Marcelo MELO will be the new ATP #1 from 2nd of November !

I don't think Marcelo has the best hands or the most talent, but I don't think either of the Bryans has it either... but they are definitely the most efficient, as the accumulated points show, it's...

The American Tennis Media was very quick and eager when crowning Sampras as the greatest ever after he won his 7th Wimbledon in 2000... Emerson's record had stood for so long, that they probably...

How would Nadal fare against Sampras on grass?

Sampras would probably feel himself lucky if he were to win a few games against Nadal in Roland Garros... but could he beat the Spaniard on the Wimbledon grass?

Re: Roland Garros SF: [1] Nadal def. [7] Murray 6-3 6-2 6-1

Murray was completely flat today... and playing 10 feet behind the baseline and being afraid of pulling the trigger and going for the down the line shot did not help either... nobody will beat Nadal...
