Re: 2017 Tournaments Thread

I think this is the only thing that I'm really angry with Rafa at this year's Wimbledon. I remember the years when Rafa won Wimbleodn he tried to stay close to the baseline.
This year it seems they...

Re: 2017 Tournaments Thread

Such a depressing loss. For so many reasons. For how the match went - coming back from two sets down, having so many break points in fifth. For Rafa really finding in first week his great game on...

Re: 2017 Tournaments Thread

I would say that Khachanov has exactly the kind of game to bother Rafa on grass. But his results in first two round are really so so. He barely beat Monteiro, who has to be bad on grass.
This makes...

Tursunov is a disgrace (appearance fee discussion)

Yesterday I got angry with players like Klizan, Tipsarevic or Dolgopolov who all retired. They didn't get an injury during the match. They must have started having those injuries, so basically they...

Guys, even if Moya is not there, they are surely talking to each other. Moreover, this agressive attitude that Moya brought won't be lost just because Moya is not in London. Relax :)

Re: 2017 Tournaments Thread

I think it's an ok draw. I'm afraid of big hitters, but more of the ones that can also move around good and hit a winner from every position. Muller and Karlovic don't seem this kind of players.
I...

Re: Who will be the 2 through 5 seeds at Wimbledon?

Ok, I assume that now when Federer lost in Stuttgart he can't be seeded #2 anymore. So #1 and #2 are fixed.
Both Federer and Wawrinka need to win Halle/Queens if they want to be seeded above Rafa....

Re: Race to Wimbledon Seedings: The final 2 week stretch

So Rafa needs 90 points to be seeded #2 at Wimbleodon?
QF at Queens will be enough?

Re: Roland Garros Final: [4] Rafael Nadal def. [3] Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1

Words can't describe how happy I am.
Amazing feeling after 3 years of so many dissapointments.
He deserves it so much. He was simply outstanding today. Unplayable. He was Rafa!
Vamoooooos!

Which semis first on Friday?

Normally it should be Rafa with Thiem, but I'm not sure about it. This match is the more anticipated one and also both halves are equal now after yesterday's delay. So?

Re: 2017 Tournaments Thread

I trust in Rafa this year. Anything other than La Decima would be a huge blow. It doesn't mean that I'm not afraid. I don't like the weather for tomorrow - it will be windy and rainy - I hope he can...

Re: 2017 Tournaments Thread

Guys, I don't think we should worry too much about Rafa loss to Thiem. It might have positive effects afterall: more days off before RG and maybe avoding loss to Djokovic before RG.
What we should...

Re: Barcelona Final: RAFA Nadal - Dominic Thiem 6-4 6-1 (wins the 2nd La Decima)

Very solid match from Rafa. Especially the 2nd set was almost perfect. So nice to see him winning MC and BCN double without any problems (like good old times). Very nice trophy presentation.

So nice to see Rafa coming back to old routine winning MC and BCN without bigger problems. I really think he is playing good tennis right now.
I just wish he could stay injury free through Madrid...

Re: 2017 Tournaments Thread

I would love him to win Miami. He is playing really good tennis this year, yet he didn't grab any title being close in Melbourne and Acapulco.
He really deserves one Miami title after so many years...

Re: Australian Open SF: Nadal def. Dimitrov 6-3 5-7 7-6(5) 6-7(4) 6-4

Amazing match! Brings all the best memories from Rafa. It was a drama like good old times.
I had tears in my eyes after last point. Lost my faith after 4th set.
So unfair Roger has one day off...

In first set Rafa played amazing, but Dimitrov wasn't bad either. Now Dimitrov is the better player to me. I have a bad feeling :(

Re: WWW Australian Open 2017 - Draw and Discussions

Rafa can't play TOP 4 in R4. Djokovic, Murray, Wawrinka and Raonic are possible rivals in QF.
