Re: Pope tells Italian tennis players to steer clear of doping

To be honest even if the Italians doped they would still suck

Re: Rafael Nadal Should Equal Roger Federer's Slam Mark in 2016

For someone who claims to hate Nadal's style of play so much, you sure spend a lot of your time watching his matches.

Re: Rafael Nadal Should Equal Roger Federer's Slam Mark in 2016

He's the defending USO champion and AO finalist, so in reality he actually has the best current results on hard court slams. I think there's a fair chance of him winning at least one of the two next...

Re: In retrospect does Kyrgios - Nadal match mean anything more than that meets the e

I don't think you're giving Kyrgios enough credit here.

It was basically a case of a player being in red-hot form, sustaining that form long enough and most importantly maintaining it at key...

Re: Should Nadal hire celebrity coach, as the three other in Big 4?

Looking back at his last showing at each slam:

-won USO
-reached AO final
-won RG
-reached Wimbledon R16

His only issue is on grass at the moment. He's still winning RG and reached two hard court...

Re: Murray misses trick

Youre probably the only person who even considered that as a possibility.

Maybe in 15 years from now, but obviously not while he is an active player on the circuit.

Re: Why Fed lost in the Wimbledon final

He has the game, as we saw in the first two sets, but keeping that level up for 5 sets requires incredible fitness levels. As fit as he is, he is hitting 33 soon and has miles and miles of tennis on...

Federer is from the German speaking part of Switzerland whereas Wawrinka is from the French speaking part. Swiss Germans are much better at English than we are (French-speaking Swiss).

Re: 2014 Live commentary thread vol. 17

True, rarely see him so relaxed and cheerful, joking around with the crowd. Always seemed to be a bit introverted.

Nadal breadsticks Kukushkin 6-7 6-1 6-1 6-1

Kukushkin was going all out for the first set and half, but it was all Nadal from then on.

Nadal into the second week for the first time since 2011.

I don't see any clear favourites, Nadal has his chances as does Djokovic. Murray and Federer are up there as well.

Re: You are the COACH : Whats your strategy for Rafa's to reach #17

He's good off both wings so I would suggest he makes his opponents run around the court instead of grinding them down by hitting it straight back to them (a bit of a habit for Nadal). With his...
