Re: It's time to give Djokovic respect that he deserves.

I honestly think Djokovic has a shot at snapping Federer's semi-final streak at Grand Slams. I simply cannot see him losing in an earlier round unless he gets injured or Federer himself rises and...

Re: Rafael Nadal @ the 2014 Australian Open

If the courts are slow hard then I think it's a guaranteed Nadal Djokovic final at the AO14 if both are fit and Murray hasn't fully recovered. No one else will be able to compete with them. It does...

Re: Will the 2014 ATP see a resurgent Roger Federer?

I think Federer will win a M1000 event next year - he still has the highest level of play on the tour, it's just in 2013 he couldn't sustain it for more than a set in a match. Can't see him winning a...

Re: What has been the worst WTF of the past 10 years?

This year was pretty poor all round. The courts were generally too slow for the majority of the players, which meant they were forced to go for too much to get through Nadal and Djokovic and racked...

Re: WTF F: Novak Djokovic defeats Rafael Nadal 2:0 (6-3, 6-4)

I actually think Nadal would've benefited from a faster court today! He was going massive on forehands and not getting anything. Djokovic far too solid and consistent.

Re: Do you think Stanislas Wawrinka will continue his top 8 form next season?

I really hope Stan can keep his level up going into 2014. When he's "on" he can look a world beater. I can see him hit through and beat the likes of Nadal and Djokovic on quicker courts on a good...

Re: Only three players won mandatory events in 2013. But any problem cannot be found?

This is the essence of the argument Pat Cash was making yesterday. Conditions are set up by tournament directors to suit the top guys as it brings in the money for them. When the conditions are alien...

Re: WWW ? WTF F : [1] Nadal - [2] Djokovic

Well once the court speed was observed to be slow, this final was NID. They might as well not have bothered with the other matches. As to who wins, I hope Djokovic can do it, but I have a nagging...

Re: WTF SF: Djokovic def Wawrinka 6-3 6-3

I stopped watching after Djokovic won the first set with 2 winners. And Novak had the cheek to say this court is "fast". Yeah bollocks Novak.

Re: Pat Cash: "Lack of new talent could scupper men's game"

I think the point Cash is trying to make is that because most of the courts play the same these days, we have the same guys in the semi-finals/finals of every tournament, as they are the best at the...

Re: Federer's Post-Season Revamp

He needs to work on this physical fitness. He clearly cannot last as long physically as Nadal, djokovic or Murray. And with slower courts everywhere these days, talent along isn't enough. If Federer...

Re: Djokovic says WTF surface is fast

Pat Cash thinks the courts are perfectly paced for Djokovic and Nadal (see today's copy of the Sunday Times). Toni Nadal, according to Cash was complaining that the Paris Bercy court was too fast....

An article in the Sunday Times today (UK paper)has Pat Cash writing that the complete lack of new talent in the men's game could see the sport decline massively in around 5 to 6 years time and cites...

Re: Fed, Delpo, tired Nole. Best shot to beat Nadal at WTF?

On this court only Djokovic can beat Nadal. del Potro might come close if he goes all out attack but he'll probably make too many errors. Federer has zero chance on this court, Nadal will keep the...

Re: Djokovic beating Nadal at RG or Nadal beating Djokovic at AO?

I think Nadal has slightly more chance of winning both to be honest if fully fit.

Re: Michael Llodra Retiring?!

Considering Llodra has fallen to 101 in the singles rankings lately, I guess there just aren't many of these quicker courts around anymore.

Re: "Speed up the courts and general court speed Thread"

Federer said after his match to Djokovic yesterday that the court at the WTF was slow. It's going to be very hard for anyone bar Nadal or Djokovic to win the WTF as these two will just get everything...

Re: WTF RR: Nadal def. Wawrinka 7-6(5) 7-6(6)

Despite an ultra slow court, Rafa made hard work of this expected victory. He'll still make the final. Slow courts are his heaven.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

The WTF court is slow. So strong defence will win this tournament. It's a toss up between Nadal and Djokovic to win it as no one else can defend as well and play with such a wide safety margin and...

Re: Federer being mentally strong is one of the bigger myths in tennis

People say Rafa or Djokovic are mentally strong on big points. But really they can play with a large margin of error and rely on their ultra strong defence to keep them in the point. Federer cannot...

Re: Predict WTF'13 Group Standings+ Knockout Stage

I think it's looking a foregone conclusion that it'll be a Nadal Djokovic final after seeing how slow the court is playing. The best two defenders/most consistent players will get to the final and...

Re: WWW WTF RR: Federer vs. Gasquet

This will be Federer in 3. All too often this year Federer starts a new set after winning the previous set with a complete mental lapse gifting a break with a poor service game. I expect a similar...

Re: WTF RR: Djokovic def. Federer 6-4 6-7(2) 6-2

The court looks slow enough that only Nadal or Djokovic can realistically win the WTF. Federer has zero chance of winning.

Re: Paris SF: Ferrer routines Nadal 6-3 7-5

So what you're saying is Rafa was acting the entire time he was on court?

Some people are beyond reasoning, and cannot be objective about anything. Pathetic and immature.

Re: Paris SF: Ferrer routines Nadal 6-3 7-5

There was absolutely no sign of a tank from Rafa today. He was fist pumping when he broke in the second set as Ferrer served for the match. Lots of grunting from Nadal as he hit the ball unbelievably...
