Re: Montpellier R2: Philip Kohlschrieber d. Paul-Henri Mathieu 3-6 7-6(5) 6-4

Kohli is really piling up the aces. Nineteen more this match with no double faults. What is up with Kohli? It seems that as his aces have gone up he is also facing more break points.

Re: Nieminen Nearing 400 Career Wins

You're right, journeyman is too diminished of stature for a player like Nieminen. I did not know he had his own tennis academy. He made it up to 13 in the world, no small feat.

Nieminen Nearing 400 Career Wins

This guy has been pretty much a journeyman much of his career. Solid but not spectacular. He also has the distinction of being married to a world-class badminton player. His won-loss is currently...

Re: If one of your favorite players got caught doping, how would you react?

One of my favorite players, Petr Korda, did get caught doping. I shrugged my shoulders, and realized he would be out for awhile serving his sentence. No biggie. This was near the end of his career...

How Many Balls...

...were used in the Isner-Mahut marathon match at Wimbledon in 2010? I can't find a count, but I imagine a good estimate can be made if you know how often new balls are introduced into the match. ...

Re: Mark my given words, Rafael Nadal will not reach the second week of AO 2015,MARK

It was Fed that didn't make it to the second week. You were almost right, missed it by just one ranking point.

Re: AO R1: (22)Kohlschreiber def. Mathieu 6-2 6-2 6-1

Nice serving by Kohli, including 18 aces. If he keeps up this form he will beat Tomic next round.

Re: can rafa or novak reach 1000 match wins like roger

With Rafa's penchant for injury and grueling style of play, I don't see him reaching 1,000 career wins. Plus, I imagine he will be cutting back on his schedule. Djovokic is a physical specimen and...

Re: No Left Hand

He's actually tried tossing with his right hand. So far it has not worked. He has had better luck with the left arm roll. Can you bounce the ball off the racket and then hit it?

No Left Hand

I have a friend that lost his left hand awhile back and has been trying to play tennis. Everything is fine except the serve. The toss is the problem. He has figured out a way of rolling the ball...

Re: Year-end championships records 1970-2014

Nadal's absence in all of this is somewhat of a surprise. It does indeed play into the discussion of GOAT status. Nastase's winning percentage is not a surprise. The guy was incredibly difficult...

Takao Suzuki

The stats on this guy point to a somewhat anomalous career. He has a lifetime winning percentage of over .500 (50-46) yet his highest career ranking is 102. There are plenty of guys that are...

Re: Knoxville Challenger R1: Duckworth vs. Russell

Why did Duckworth retire? I did not see the second set. By the way, Duckworth needs to work on dropping one bad habit of his. After a bad shot he points aggressively at whichever ballboy or...
