Re: Cincinnati R2: Fognini def. Hewitt 6-1 6-4

Maybe Hewitt used his final surge of greatness in Newport.

Re: Cincinnati R2: Fognini def. Hewitt 6-1 6-4

Brad Gilbert said in the Facing Hewitt book that you don't give Hewitt pace and you don't take him out wide, he's most dangerous out side where he gets more racquet head speed from defensive position...

Cincy R2 Hewitt vs. Fognini

Hewitt getting blasted again, lost first set 61. Lost last year to Fog in Bejing 6062. Must be a kryptonite matchup for poor Super Hewitt.

Re: Cincinnati R1: Hewitt def. Melzer 3-6 6-4 6-4

Big win for Hewitt after the bad loss to Benneteau in TOR. He has two runner ups in Cincy now it's time to go all the way. )

Re: Nadal getting "growth factors" not "growth hormones"

Mark McGwire used to place his "supplements" out front on the top shelf of his locker. As if to say, "See, look I'm not taking anything illegal, I'm getting all these muscles from these legal...

Re: 'John McEnroe smoked marijuana during Wimbledon'

A former junior opponent says he used to smoke mary jane back at Kalamazoo in the dorms during nationals. Not unlike a fair bit of other juniors back then.

Re: Toronto R64 Benneteau Def Hewitt 6-1 6-2

He's earned both titles in Newport and Brisbane with superb play. Problem is sustaining that level. His life doesn't revolve totally around tennis like it used to in the prime years. The wife and 3...

Re: Toronto R64 Benneteau Def Hewitt 6-1 6-2

He actually played well in DC beating Matosevic and taking Raonic to 6767. At 33, with an outdate style of game and struggling serve, bad results like this are unavoidable.

Estrella oldest first time top hundred entrant

Victor Estrella is the oldest first time top hundred ATP player at 33. Norman was 3l, Jeff Salzenstein was 30. Amazing record for Victor Estrella.

Re: Tribute to Victor Estrella Burgos

Estrella is the greatest example of dedication and perseverance maybe in history. To finally get to the top hundred at age 33 has got to be a record which will never be broken. No endorsements, no...

Re: Who is the oldest player to crach top hundred for first time after 30?

Forgot about Dick Norman. It's a very rare accomplishment to crack the top hundred for the first time after 30. Michael Yani is another possibility but I don't think he quite got into the top...

Could it be Victor Estrella? If so what a fantastic achievement. Very few players have cracked the top hundred for the first time in their careers afer age 30. Wonder if anyone knows the others - if...

Re: Tribute to Victor Estrella Burgos

In some ways Victor Estrella is more impressive and a better example of dedication and perseverance than Fed or Rafa. He came from nothing, came up the hard way, mediocre training facility and...

Re: Newport Final: Hewitt def. Karlovic 6-3, 6-7(4), 7-6(3)

Hewitt was given a copy of the new book Facing Hewitt during the tournament in Newport - and then he goes on to win the singles and doubles titles - coincidence? Must be a pretty good book :)

RF always seems to play his best vs. Djokovic in the big matches. If Fed can keep it close, like he always does, Djokovic could unravel again. Djokovic needs a set and a break lead, otherwise the...

Re: why federer will not beat nole on sunday

Gonna be epic. Djokovic desperately wants this but so does Federer. All time classic battle, Djokovic may need it more but the crowd could push Fed through if he can keep it close.
