Re: Wimbledon R4: Berdych def. Tomic 7-6(4) 6-7(5) 6-4 6-4

While Tomic has a good and accurate first serve, and can hit it hard enough, he gets so many cheap points because he has such a quick motion and serves without much time between points. Many of his...

Re: Will Janowicz make semi?

I am interested in seeing how long he can hit this big without collapsing in a heap of errors. I think at this stage he is expected to beat Melzer and Paire/Kubot/Mannarino, but who knows? I don't...

Re: Melzer and Stakhovsky take a swipe at Federer

Melzer :facepalm: Gets a gift from the Gods with Stakhovsky taking out Roger, 'coz even when he was at his best level eons ago, he was getting whipped by Roger time and time again at this stage of...

Re: Tomic shades Federer

Here's the full quote. Looks even worse :lol:

"I think a lot of people were happy when Nadal sort of lost. I think Roger was very happy," said the young Aussie. "I think he got ahead of himself,...

Re: Stakhovsky Bad mouths Federer 'Beat his ego and kicked his butt'

Utter BS around here, but what's new? 14 pages and nobody can read a transcript. He was referring to the aura, not ego, based on his lengthy reply. Not everyone can speak 16 languages fluently like...

Re: Wimbledon R1: Steve Darcis def. [5] Rafael Nadal 7-6 (4) 7-6 (8) 6-4

I am a fan of Rafael Nadal, but I am glad he is out. This loss should tell him he either needs to man up, avoid excuses and work hard on his game or just stop playing on everything but clay (that way...

Re: Best post-match defeat speech?

Best... how? Classiest by the loser or winner? I am sure most people here would consider the 2009 AO final a triumph for Nadal, not Federer.

Personally, I think neither of these guys makes...

Re: Roger Federer`s Tour of Duty

He could do it. IMO, last year's final was pretty one-sided after the 1st set, and as good as Murray was in the 1st, Roger looked really flat. He had some long matches before. This time he has it...

Re: Will Rosol do the Unthinkable?

LOL no. He won't get there. And if he does, the end will be swift and painless. Then people will forget him until 12 months later when they resume sucking on their pacifiers furiously in memory of a...

Re: Tursunov on how much it costs to be a tennis player

I guess the youngsters probably go through the phase of travelling and living dirt cheap and then if/when they make it big, cash big on the perks of success. Didn't Nadal say that he still travels...

Re: Sexy Radek strikes again: dumps Vaidisova, starts banging Kvitova

Re: Nadal's dominance limited to 4 tournaments?

Hate to agree with GSMnadal on this, but this is true. You cannot just ignore the best tournaments of a player. Makes zero sense.

Re: Queen's F 2013: Andy Murray def. Marin Cilic 5-7, 7-5, 6-3

Decent match, but I felt like I was watching Murray circa-2010 here. Complaining non-stop and looking down at the court after every point. Lendl must have been wondering if his efforts over a year...

Re: Fed's domination v/s Nadal's

You talk like big servers have a huge advantage over Federer. Don't forget he is one of the best servers of all time himself and at his best, opponents struggled to win points on his serve. Given how...

Re: Nadal seeded 5th in Wimbledon is actually a boon for his main oponents

Interesting though that 2 of those SF defeats are endlessly brought up by fans of his rivals, for the utter one-sidedness of the defeats: they were humiliations rather than losses. And let us not...

Re: Would Djokovic have preferred to play Nadal in the RG final?

Of course. However, he lost in 4 sets under 'ideal' conditions for him, and lost in 5 close sets under the worst conditions. And again, he won 8 games in ideal conditions but also thoroughly...

Re: How do you feel about Nadal's clay court superiority inflating his overall GS cou

You still did not respond to my question. Roger has won more tournaments on hard because he played more on hard. Is that hard :lol: to understand? He has won MS on clay as well.

Re: Roland Garros SF 2013: Nadal def. Djokovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7(3), 9-7

Come again? He has beaten him 10 times, which is more than Blake and Youzhny combined. On all surfaces, not only fast hardcourts.

Thanks for playing.

Re: Nadal 5th seed at Wimbledon!

Wimbledon should consider seeding him at least in top 4. He has made 5 finals and won 2. He has far and away the 2nd best resume at Wimbledon of active players.

Can you post the percentage of tournaments he played on hard and clay as well for a bit of perspective? You realize that despite grass being his best surface, he could not play as much as he would...

Re: Should Nadal play a grass tournament prior to Wimbledon?

You clearly don't play tennis at all. Or even if you ran a bit, you'd know from experience that a dirt trail is much easier than concrete. Clay IS the least stressful surface. Old guys and those with...

Re: Roland Garros SF 2013: Nadal def. Djokovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7(3), 9-7

Nadal has won the last 4 against Blake, and all were on Blake's best surface, hard court. His H2H against Youzhny is 10-4, having won 7 of the last 8, and obviously all on clay. Roger's H2H against...

Re: "Nadal's playing is too physical, he won't last""

There are only 2-3 players in the HISTORY of the game who would kill to have 'lasted' as long as he did and achieved as much. And he is still around, winning big.

Same case with writing off...
