Re: Why Nadal must still be considered as a clay-court specialist

I do not agree that Rafa is a slow court specialist. Actually Rafa prefers a fast and high bouncing clay court. You have to consider the surface in three dimensions - the material, speed and bounce....

Re: Nadal heavy favorite for Wimbledon, USOpen and the YE#1

Although I am extremly impressed by Nadal's accomplishments so far this season, and especially on clay, I would say that he is not the favorite for Wimbledon, at least not yet. He has not performed...

Re: WWW?: 2017 Roland Garros Final: [3] Wawrinka vs. [4] Nadal

Nadal in three close sets. Rafa will punish Stan's slice returns and have too many easy service games, I believe. Stan needs to serve much better than in the semi to have any chance in this match. I...

Re: Rotterdam R1: [4] Berdych def. Copil 7-6(3) 6-4

Looking at the match I found it hard to believe that Copil never has been into the top 100, until I saw the last game... Such a shame, he has a lot of tennis in him. Reads the game very well, great...

Re: Bold prediction: title favourite Nadal will flop to some scrub at the French Open

If he plays like he did in Melbourne I don't see him losing to anyone on clay besides an in-form Djokovic.

Re: Budapest CH SF: Fucsovics def. Ruud 6-0 6-0

Casper is a great talent, but I feel that he is playing to passively and not using his skills enough on the court. His forehand is already great, he should try to build his game around it instead of...

Re: Milos Raonic: "Letter to my future self"

Interesting read. I admire Raonic's attitude. His attitude is actually the factor that can win him a slam or two. His talent is only moderate compared to many of the top players, but after seeing his...

Re: Seville QF: Ruud def. Cervantes 3-6 6-1 6-4

Amazing news for us Norwegians! I think Casper's biggest strength is his attitude. He really looks professional out there although he is only 17 years old. And that forehand is already a great shot....

Re: Is their a chance Nole will win as much or surpass Federer in GS count?

Actually I think it is doable. At the moment injury risk is his main rival, not the other players. The question is if other players will finally raise their level and rise to the occasion. I still...

Re: Do you enjoy the style of modern tennis?

To be honest I am not too concerned as the young players nowadays are not just grinders or great defenders. Look at the talents from 95-98 generations - Kyrgios, Zverev, Fritz, Coric, Tiafoe etc....

Re: AO Final: Novak Djokovic def. Andy Murray 6-1, 7-5, 7-6(3). SIX-cess!

The match was at its best at 4-4 in the second set. Too bad Murray was not able to win that one. The match was sort of boring after that, Djokovic dropped his level in the third set too.

Re: WWW AO Final: Novak Djokovic v. Andy Murray XXXI

I think Djokovic will run away with this pretty comfortably. He will be the one dictating rallies for the most part, as usual. As long as Novak can stay away from slowpaced rallies and return well, I...

Re: Federer MUST play Rome now

Roger has not looked convincing on clay in quite a while, especially not after he changed racket. His last really good clay tournament was RG2011, where it is fair to say that he was the best player...

Re: Casper Ruud

As a Norwegian tennis fan I am very excited about Casper's recent results. These sort of results are extremely rare for Norwegian players, especially on the men's side. It is true that his forehand...

Re: Does Murray's Result Suggest Dimitrov is Underrated?

Dimitrov-Murray is the best match of the tournament so far. Too bad it did not go to five sets, it could have been a classic. The first set was some of the best tennis I have witnessed in quite a...

Re: Mats Wilander: "Madison Keys hits the ball harder than some ATP biggest hitters"

Watching men and women play tennis live it is obvious that the main differences are court coverage and racket head speed, not pace itself. Serena is the only female player who gets close to men when...

Re: WWW ? AO 2015 SF: (1) N. Djokovic Vs. (4) S. Wawrinka ! :D

Djokovic in three sets.

I don't know why, but I have a feeling that it will be an anticlimax. Novak is serving extremely well in this tournament and his aggressive baseline game has been very...

Re: WWW AO 2015 QF: Djokovic vs Raonic

I am pretty sure it will be a close one. Raonic has improved his baseline game and return game, so Djokovic needs to be careful and disciplined in his own service games. The most important question...

Re: AusOpen RND 4: Andy Murray Def Girgor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-7, 6-3, 7-5

The second set was amazing. So many extraordinary rallies, momentum swings. I got almost dizzy. More errors from both in set three and four. A pity we did not get a fifth set.

Re: AO R4: Berdych def. Tomic 6-2 7-6(3) 6-2

I agree with you. He is a natural talent, but he has not found out his game and I am not sure he ever will. He is in desperate need of a good coach. With his height and his power he needs to be way...

Re: WWW: AO R4 - Nadal vs. Anderson

Really strange that they have only met once, back in 2010. I have not seen much of Anderson's matches in this tournament, but I would assume that Kevin has the game to bother Nadal. I guess the main...

Re: AO R3 : Seppi def. Federer 6-4 7-6(5) 4-6 7-6(5)

The court was playing very fast and it suited Seppi's game. Seppi was able to control his baseline better than Roger. He was the one who had consistent depth on his shots, both forehand and backhand....
