Re: Barcelona/Bucharest

He should almost be top 100, right? Around 105, as of the current rankings.

Re: Barcelona/Bucharest

Whatever happens, I hope it works out for the year.

And, who knows, we might have another double's team with Ungur/Copil, they've done really well this tournament. :cool:

Re: Barcelona/Bucharest

Mergea is an excellent player, but there was talk of him being a more difficult figure. I'm sure he feels the pressure to succeed now, but I doubt that burning through partners is the way to go. Just...

Re: Nadal:"It's a disaster. My game was mundane"

Good to see Nadal is finally shifting focus to the technical side of his game. Wins and confidence both come from a solid game, not the other way around, as much as Nadal has claimed this to be the...

Re: Romanian player Patrick Ciorcila(1092) about ITF conditions (+shocking pic)

I know money shouldn't be the problem, he comes from a rich family.

Andrei Pavel became his coach in January, this year. Apparently, Ciorcila has been focusing on school and once that's finished...

Re: Monte Carlo QF: Rafael Nadal def. David Ferrer 6-4 5-7 6-2

Good effort by both and pretty alright even by Nadal's standards. Failing to serve out the first and the second set, then even losing serve twice in a row to get a third set, was really...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 10

That time violation, while obviously correct in the sense that Nadal had just taken 29 seconds, was terribly timed, after a point in which both players (and particularly Nadal) had run from side to...

Re: Casablanca/Houston

Bopanna/Mergea lost, as was expected after they finally broke the pattern and won a first set. :p

6-3, 2-6, 7-10

The Pakistani/Australian-Canadian duo served quite well throughout the game, except...

Re: New doubles teams for 2015 season [Bopanna/Nestor confirmed]

Well, the fact that Mergea just doesn't seem to be able to stick with one partner for more than a few months is worrying in itself. I reckon he might be putting himself under more pressure to succeed...

Re: New doubles teams for 2015 season [Bopanna/Nestor confirmed]

Just read a news item saying Bopanna will be partnering Mergea for a long(er) term collaboration.

Re: Federer 2013=Murray 2014=Nadal 2015?

It's easy to say it all started in 2015. But let's be fair and look at it in some perspective: it's been downhill since the 2013 US Open, or AO 2014 final at the latest. In context, RG is rather the...

Re: Miami R3: Verdasco def. Nadal 64 26 63

Apparently as long as an opponent is reasonably controlled in his shots, keeps rallies going and puts in a couple of well placed balls when it matters, Nadal is prone to be in serious danger.

Re: Indian Wells Epic QF: (6) Raonic finally defeats (3)Nadal 4-6 7-6(10)7-5

Well, you would have said Simon was a good barometer, judging by his results this year. But his game was really crappy on the day.

Last year, Nadal was unconvincing against Stepanek - and the...

Re: Indian Wells Epic QF: (6) Raonic finally defeats (3)Nadal 4-6 7-6(10)7-5

Compared to last year, when Nadal lost here to Dolgopolov after a similarly tight match, he might be a bit ahead in terms of level of play.

But as mentioned, the mental strength is not where it...

Re: Indian Wells Epic QF: (6) Raonic finally defeats (3)Nadal 4-6 7-6(10)7-5

That was might foolish by Nadal: got tight at the ends of both the second and the third set, all the break points he had to save came in those two games.

Gifted at least two really tame second...

Re: Week 11: Irving, TX, USA [Entry List]

Great players here, both in singles and doubles! And lovely streams to go with it.

Muller just beat Andujar, 7-6, 6-4. He seemed unconfortable at times - missed three consecutive break/set points in...

Re: Indian Wells R3: [3] Nadal def. Young 6-4 6-2

Not quite the good stuff from either player today. Young held just once in the second set.

Nadal will have to improve for Simon, who actually has quite a good chance when they meet.

Re: Indian Wells R3: (WC) Kokkinakis def. Monaco, 6-2 5-7 7-6(5)

Monaco really let himself down in the tiebreak, gave away three relatively easy points, including on the last match point.

Good stuff from both, otherwise!

Re: IW R2: Sock d. Muller 3-6; 6-3; 7-6(7)

Muller had his chances, couldn't covert. Should have definitely done more at 7-6 in the tb.

Re: Buenos Aires F: [1] Nadal def. Monaco 6-4 6-1, equals Vilas' 46 Clay titles recor

Kind of funny how Nadal only beat players from Argentina in this tournament.

Re: Buenos Aires SF: [1] Nadal def. Berlocq 7-6(7) 6-2

Looking at the performance zone on the ATP website, Berlocq is actually ranked higher than Federer over the last 52 weeks, in 13th position. Of course that's not saying much, his career performance...
