Re: WWW: ATP Istanbul Open 2015?

Ouch... Obviously all their "appearance fee" enveloppe went to Greederer. Challenger draw if there was ever any. If he doesn't take this one he'd rather skip the rest of the clay season... Still good...

Hard to disagree about Isner's upset potential, it has been repeated endlessly since 2011. However picking Raonic ahead of Monfils :spit:

Re: Bucharest R2: Monfils def Youzhny 6-1, 6-2

The question is: is there any payer on the tour not spanking one-handers left and right this year? Youzhny of course, but also Dimitrov, Thiem, Wawrinka, Gasquet, Almagro, and recently Federer......

Re: What result in the rest of the season would make MTF explode the most?

Lazardal getting the Channel Slam is a good candidate. Trendykori or Hypefils winning RG would have a big impact as well.

Re: Federer fans - Would you exchange Wimby 15 for RG 15 ?

This exactly. Who cares about a second FO that would be regarded as a second fluke anyway? This is Nadal's kingdom, period.
Having won it once in the Nadal era is enough of a miracle. On the other...

Re: Fifth set tiebreak in Davis Cup from 2016 onwards

THIS!! I can't elieve they're actually considering to do that. DC doesn't need Fedalovic to be epic, but it definitely needs its endless five-setters!

Re: Is Swiss Tennis screwed after Fed and Wawa?

You just have to take a look at the live ranking thread. They have like one player in the U21 top 30, one in the U19 and 0 in U18 and U16... As far back as I've been following tennis (early 90s)...

Re: Nadal: I want to have more Grand Slams than Sampras

Actually I think he would have had much more chance to hit the 300 weeks than the 17 slams. Overall, his consistency and good match-up with Djokovic would have made him a long-term #1, but most...

Re: Which are the matches closest to peak vs peak?

That match was great, but I would say that the IW/Miami swing in 1995 was even better. Both were at their absolute peak back then.

Regarding the "Big 3"

Djokovic - Nadal/Federer USO 2011
Federer -...

Re: Has Djokovic ever been ranked behind a younger player?

Ooop, you're very right, I had completely forgot that messy 98 :lol:
Anyway, it makes Novak's performance all the more impressive. On a similar note, he has 613 tour wins whereas the best younger...

Re: Has Djokovic ever been ranked behind a younger player?

Wow, good find, thanks... I didn't know that Zverev was that young tbh. So Novak's streak is a bit longer that Pete's (10 years vs almost 11). But of course in Novak's case it's unlikely to end any...

Has Djokovic ever been ranked behind a younger player?

Just wondering... Obviously none of the current top 100 players was ever in that situation, but maybe some failed "wunderkid" around 2004-2005?
I can't think of any player with such a streak. Even...

Re: 8 Teens in Top 200 for the first time since Oct. 22 2007

He has 389pts including 305 earned within 3 weeks in Germany. Doesn't look like he will get the 150 extra pts or so he needs anytime soon. So far his performance looks more like Khachanov in 2013...

Re: Rio Olympics 2016: Fast hard courts confirmed, Correct choice?

Poor Nadal has been preparing for 2.5 years for this occasion... He most likely won't stand a chance at 30 on fast HC. Don't know if it's a good news for Fed either, a win at 35 is still very...

Re: Will Djokovic be a GOAT candidate if he wins 12 slams?

I do. For me each of Federer, Nadal, Sampras, Borg, Laver has something unique that no other could do. This is why they are all in the top tier, and there's no satisfactory way to rank them within...
