Re: Rome R2: Federer def. Zverev 6-3 7-5

I like Zverev but Federer exposed him today with his variety, dropshots and slices. Took Zverev into places where he didn't want to be and completely owned him once he had him out of his comfort...

Re: Murray voices some not too subtle doping allegations

I'm sure this has been pointed out already but this part is a pretty serious thing for Murray to say... I can only think of one example of someone playing "six-hour matches over and over." (AO 12)...

Re: Miami R4: [1] Novak Djokovic def. [14] Dominic Thiem 6-3 6-4

OK, it's very easy to laugh at Thiem here. His BP conversion was in fact 0 from 15, 0% - the 1 does not count as Djokovic handed it to him. In other words, the worst playing of breakpoints I have...

Re: 2016 Live Commentary Thread vol. 6

I think he should break the world record for unconverted BPs in a single game now. It would be a fitting end to the match.

Thiem hasn't actually converted a single BP all match - the stats will...

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

They are trying to spin it so it looks like Federer has the same opinion as King and Navratilova, when in reality what he said was very caveated.

Oh sorry, I missed the post where someone threatened to ignore you on an internet messageboard. The comparison with the Holocaust makes perfect sense now. Sorry, my bad. :wink2:

No retister, but the fact that arguing you should be paid based on what you bring in has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with fascism, or the Holocaust, does mean it's incorrect. Very, very...

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

OK, so you basically agree with Novak that the prize money of a tour should be determined by the amount of $$$ that it brings in? Right? Or should it be determined by something else?

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

Well, yes, but it's pretty easy to see that the women should be getting roughly half what the men get - which is where things end up in non mixed tournaments.

The fact that it's difficult to...

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

Btw, I still haven't had an explanation of why 2016 wheelchair Wimbledon and the seniors shouldn't get equal pay as well. Surely anything else would be discrimination and/or ageism?

Of course, if...

The answer to this is 'no' - nobody can give the explanation you're looking for. This thread has been going for god knows how many pages and nobody has managed it yet. It's just a load of shouty...

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

Come on, if I "push myself to the limit" that doesn't mean I deserve to be paid as much as Novak, or for that matter Serena. Because, unfortunately, nobody wants to watch me. :(

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

The BO5 argument is a bad one (in my opinion). Surely the thread should be about what Novak actually said, which is that the men should be paid more for bringing in more money. I still can't get my...

Thanks for proving my point...



The way you resort to throwing insults around doesn't achieve anything and only underlines the fact that you've lost the argument.

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

I can't agree with this one, or with the whole 5 set vs 3 set thing. It's all about what the customer wants to pay to watch, in my opinion. I'm sure the World Strongman Championship has plenty of...

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

A fair way of allocating prize money would be as a % of total revenues from the men's and women's tournaments. At the moment the women are getting a higher % of the revenues generated by their...

Which is, of course, because you can't think of a response. :/

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

Why is it stupid? Women's prize money should be determined by the amount of $$$ their tournaments bring in, not what the men are getting.



Getting a subsidy from the men is not equality and...

Re: Djokovic pulled a Tsonga in the press conference when asked about equal prize mon

Novak's comments are entirely correct. The men's tour is subsidising the women's tour and it shouldn't continue.

Equality means equal pay for equal products. The products are not equal here. The...

I have this argument all the time. In my opinion there is no overall disadvantage to being tall (if anything, it is an advantage because of serve).

Re: 2016 Live Commentary Thread vol. 5

No, this is different. Zverev is physically very immature but is already super strong. He is going to get a lot better from here.

What bothers me about him is the choking. He lost a match to Coric...
