Re: WWW Dubai [SF]: Coric vs. Federer

yes you're right, that's the one fear I had, it will be his first day match, and it's always a very important and underrated factor, sometimes he had problems with this in Dubai

Re: WWW Dubai [SF]: Coric vs. Federer

Imo outpushing means not allowing a player to attack and play long long rallies,

it's not the same as defending : in my eyes defending can't be called pushing, it means stretching to retrieve balls...

Re: Mats did it again

OK thanks, that's still reasonable imo, nothing like some things he said about Federer like he would win 25 slams because "now he had understood how to play against Nadal" :lol:

Re: WWW Dubai [SF]: Coric vs. Federer

I think Murray's fans saw most of all that Andy hurt himself :lol:

I mean Coric played very well but you can't say he hurt Murray by his weapons, he tired and upset Murray, no doubt, but didn't hurt...

Re: Who will break in TOP 100 for first time in 2015?

For Millman, it depends on his health, last time he was going to enter he had to stop because of his shoulder.

In last weeks he had a back problem.

How is he now ? (I know he's in semifinal in...

it's all in Federer's racket, he looked very good in the first set against Gasquet imo (not that well in previous matches) then it should be tough for Coric because Fed will definitely play much...

Re: As teenagers, how would these 11 players rank, greatest to least great?

noone was or will be better than Nadal among those, that's the only clear thing imo

To go further if you have to define teenagers as "less than 20", Coric still has one year and a half to show...

To be clear, is it the only sentence from Wilander in those articles ?

Re: Amazing achievement for Coric - played competetive matches against BIG 4 @ age of

Coric looks very good and promising for his age, but he clearly faced such poor versions of Nadal and Murray, that you can't consider those wins as meaning he's 'competitive against the top-4' or...

Re: Why is Dubai only a ATP 500 ...

I don't understand all this recent gossiping about Dubai should be a Ms1000, etc. ... Djokovic has said nice words about Dubai, OK, but no need to take them too seriously.

Re: Indian Wells Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated February 23, 2015)

I doubt he comes to Indian Wells, whether in the main or qualifying draw

Re: Dubai R2: [LL] Coric def. [WC] Baghdatis 6-4 3-6 6-6(4-4) ret.

Anyway he probably didn't cramp from being two breaks up in the third set if he retired in the final set tie-break.

it means that Coric came back himself from 2 breaks back in the third set, which...

Re: Nadal to Carlos Bernardes: "I will ask for you to not umpire my matches anymore"

you can see a lot a lot of points like that in many many matches !

The rule is not enforced at all !

very often the average time taken by players between points is more than 25 seconds, which means...

Re: Any news of the long-term injured : Haas-Mayer-Tipsy-Riba ?

that's an info or a joking sentence ? I mean on MTF it's not easy to separate both :lol:

Re: Federer trashes Davis Cup: ''It's been a big burden and caused many difficulties'

yes, Federer has had a very good life :)

but I insist : the burden from what I understand is not so much the tiredness of the ties, but rather all of the controversies.

It's true that Federer has...

yes I think the same : I mean 2005 and 2006 were all about Fedal and Nadal was not at Federer's level yet outside clay,

Re: Federer trashes Davis Cup: ''It's been a big burden and caused many difficulties'

Re: Federer trashes Davis Cup: ''It's been a big burden and caused many difficulties'

it's what he feels, and he already felt that last year, definitely.

I don't see how calling it a burden is thrashing it.

Davis cup is a burden, for players who like it, like Monfils, and for...

Re: Federer trashes Davis Cup: ''It's been a big burden and caused many difficulties'

you draw too many conclusions from his words, Federer doesn't speak with such precision and he's used to deciding to play a Davis cup tie just a few weeks in advance.

In advance, he always prefers...

Re: Federer trashes Davis Cup: ''It's been a big burden and caused many difficulties'

Re: Nadal to Carlos Bernardes: "I will ask for you to not umpire my matches anymore"

I'm pretty sure that to be called a warning, he took more than 30 seconds, not just more than 25 seconds.

I mean we all saw those stats with players' average time between points being around 27...
