Re: WWW US Open 2015 (Draw Ceremony streamed live on Youtube)

Very intriguing to have these competitive rivalries in each of the potential QF's:

Djokovic-Nadal
Federer-Berdych
Murray-Wawrinka
Nishikori-Ferrer

Of course, the form of several of these players...

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

That sentiment isn't even worth entertaining. I would love for the keyboardist(s) who think this is cheap to go out and try that against any respectable serve. The reflex, precision, and timing in...

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

He has trouble because of that kick and lefty trajectory to his backhand, which is more or less moot if he's picking it up before the ball can really leap out in any direction. I don't think it has...

Re: Winston Salem R1: Tiafoe def. Duckworth 3-6 7-6 (4) 7-6 (3)

Wow! I followed this up on livescore until he was down 0-3 in the third. I assumed that was all she wrote. Great comeback from the kid.

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

What is there to "figure out"?

Players know he's going to end up at the net. It's not like they've never hit a passing shot. The problem is they have no idea when he's going to do it, and they're...

Re: Djokovic Overhead Smash FAIL Compilation

I want to say his might have something to do with how niche his serve is. Technically speaking, it is very...idiosyncratic. Great serve, of course, just doesn't seem translatable.


Djokovic's is...

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

No nerve struck, just calling it as everyone sees it.

Please, carry on with your whining and non-arguments.

Re: If No1e fails to win the US Open he needs to fire Boris Becker

I thought Boris was more or less brought on to help his state of mind? Didn't they say something like that a while back?

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

It's a joke, and I mean that in the best way possible. This is the type of stuff we do vs like the 3.0 players and kids when we can afford to goof off. He's doing it against world-class servers and...

Re: Roddick 09 vs Murray 13 at Wimbledon

I preferred Murray in 2009 actually. That Wimbledon semi featured higher quality than most of the Final that year.

Re: Cincinnati R2: Murray def. Fish 6-4 7-6(1)

At most times during the day, Fish reminds me of Bill Murray circa "What About Bob?"

Re: Cincy schedules potential Murray vs Dimitrov meeting for COURT 3!

Rest assured this is ESPN's fault. They are trying to make up for the lack of women coverage brought on by TC's prohibition of the same.

Re: David Ferrer versus JW Tsonga: who deserves to win a slam more?

It was Murray and Djokovic in 2011. But yeah, forgot that he was a 2/4 guy. That will help me sleep better.

Re: David Ferrer versus JW Tsonga: who deserves to win a slam more?

Actually, Ferrer has beaten three of "the big 4" on two separate occasions (both at the WTF iirc).


To answer the thread question though, neither. Tsonga had his looks and blew it. Ferrer shown that...

Re: No fine for Harrison after threatening to clock Kokkinakis

And I've never suggested that it was fair. I agree with pretty much everything you said in this post. I'm just taking a look at the situation for what it is and why it would be hard to single out...

Re: No fine for Harrison after threatening to clock Kokkinakis

I'm sure this is in jest because otherwise this is a ridiculous sentiment. Serena Williams was fined an unprecedented $82,500 for threatening a linesman.

Ferrer has twice now put his hands on two of...

Re: No fine for Harrison after threatening to clock Kokkinakis

He never threatened to clock Kokk. He said "If he wants to go at it" and "I should deck that kid" in a conversation with Layhani. Might seem pedantic, but this is the type of scrutiny these...

Re: Roger Federer: “I think I'm a better player now than when I was at 24"

Stopped reading at the forehand bit.

Came back to it later and I actually like his comments about depth and the transition of generations.

Re: Kokkinakis calls on ATP to fine Harrison

True. The lack of evidence of provocation on Harrison's end, combined with his posture (sitting in the chair as Kokk approached, seemingly being pulled in by the handshake), would make it hard to...

Re: Who Is Djokovic's "Main" Rival Right Now?

Context mate. I referred to 2014-present for each players, as that's about as far back as "recent" can be stretched by any imagination.

Did I not make a strong case for Federer? Or is it that you can't read?

Re: Who Is Djokovic's "Main" Rival Right Now?

But Fed has had one more meeting with Novak in the same time (2014-present) than Andy, two of which have been Major finals.

So the question is, at least as far as Murray and Federer are concerned:...
