Re: Whats up with Federer's backhand

that's not correct. look at the match in canada against djokovic and on clay against nadal. he'll win his share but more often than not, his backhand will break down or give up the short ball. if...

Re: Whats up with Federer's backhand

federer's backhand is good but it's not one of the top 10-15 in the world. i'd take backhands like gasquet, ljubicic, djokovic, haas, nalbandian, safin, stepanek, davydenko, youzhny etc over...

berdych is a mental midget. he needs to man up and play up to his talent capabilities.

Re: Nole def. Roger 76 26 76. Djokovic revolution has just begun!

just another example of the fact that federer doesn't have a top 10 backhand in the world. anyone who disputes that is clueless.

Re: You guys really buy the "slow" grass?

1996 roland garros seemed faster primarily b/c there was a heat wave in paris during those 2 weeks which resulted in the court playing very quickly. thus, the success of sampras and stich that year.

Re: You guys really buy the "slow" grass?

i actually like the new surface. i couldn't stand the serve, ace or serve, missed return points of the past. to anyone who doesn't see a difference in how the court is playing, they need to open...

Re: Is Wimbledon the worst prepared sporting event in the world...

ok:
1) play on all courts and on all days (regardless of weather) should start at 11 am. 1 pm is ridiculous and puts the players scheduled last at a disadvantage b/c they never know if they're...

Re: You guys really buy the "slow" grass?

Re: Is it true that grass courts are slower now?

they changed the type of grass AFTER 2001. it's not a coincidence that the 2002 final was hewitt vs. nalbandian. federer served/volleyed a majority of the time when he beat sampras in 2001. now he...

Re: Nadal's topspin vs. Carlsson's
