Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Fed's physical decline started in 2007 actually and obviously, as Nadal's started in 2009 actually and obviously (he was never as good physically as in 2008-2009 after that : in 2010 his backhand was...

Re: Federer-Nadal poll (yes another one)

the third one is not true anymore at the moment I read the results of this poll : it's equal (and despite my vote Fed left brained)

but there are many left-wing people who prefer Federer and many...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

I really don't understand why, it's just a matter of calendar : what's the difference between being better from the 1st of february to the 31st of january or from the 1st of january to the 31st of...

Re: Walter Trusendi and Elie Rousset banned

Trusendi related the same story, originally in la Gazzetta, translated in French here in l'Equipe :

he says he's devastated,...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

2011 and AO 2012 were surprising yes in the stamina department yes, but he was not that bad before in that department (remember Madrid 2009) and that good afterwards either.

I think you focus too...

Re: Federer:"Rafa and Andy have more the defensive DNA..."

now yes he heavily depends on his serve but it was very different in his prime, his serve was less good and he was much better for the rest

People's memories are too much influenced by the recent...

Re: Miami R1: [WC] Chung def. Granollers 6-0 4-6 6-4

that tall ? He didn't look that tall to me, I don't know why I failed like that : is he like Gasquet with short legs ?

it's still hard for me to see Gasquet as a 1.85m guy.

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Djokovic disappointed in 2009 and 2010 but he had shown in 2008 that he was better than that (Fed finished number 2 to him only by a small margin)

I mean you can't say that he was not a contender...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Give me stats about the start of the 80s which is the period then (we're not talking of the 70s, we're talking of Connors' old age)

in the second part of the 80s, I'm 100% certain it was not the...

Re: Walter Trusendi and Elie Rousset banned over match-fixing

The title of the thread should be changed as there was no match-fixing and nothing related to betting

Re: Miami R1: [WC] Chung def. Granollers 6-0 4-6 6-4

his shots are well-disguised, I quite like his forehand especially, yes a little bit similar to Tomic's in the way it's disguised but prepared nearer to the body (I also like Tomic's forehand...

Re: Best Frenchman on the tour?

I still think his basic game is more solid and regular than Simon's

Re: If Davydenko and Nadal had met at RG?

the major problem I see with what you say is that you speak of 2005 (a year where young Nadal still won Monte-Carlo, Roma, defeating Coria in 5, and the French open, defeating Federer in 4, but yes...

Re: Best Frenchman on the tour?

it's consistent yes (and yes he finished 21st last year) and very good, but still he can lose to anybody when off.

Gasquet's consistency when not injured is very impressive to me, his number of...

Re: Miami R1: Almagro def. Stakhovsky 6-3, 6-7(3-7), 6-4

He looks very determined and focused : clearly his situation and the necessary come-back motivate him a lot.

that said, he's not ready yet to face Nadal except if this one is very injured.

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

200 would only mean one more year, it's more than reasonable, it's quite likely

You can see like me that there are many more 30+ players now in the top-50 than in Connors', McEnroe's and Lendl's...

Re: Best Frenchman on the tour?

Simon's consistency is overrated, yes, and Gasquet generally is clearly underrated in this forum, I think his talent was overrated but he has got a very solid game to stay in the top-20, he needs...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

and more importantly have more fragile bodies

I don't think Murray's game is clearly more harmful than Djokovic's but he has this genetic problem in the knee iirc, and a fragile back.
And he has a...

But anyway, most people know that out of them, only Monfils could possibly win...

Re: Official CPR for Masters 1000 and Grand Slams

ITF doesn't take into account the humidity of the air, just the surface iirc

The humidity is Miami's biggest problem, whereas in Indian Wells the dry air helps the speed

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

even before considering Djokovic will change his game and/or is not a grinder, I would like an evidence that what people call grinders don't age well : I've seen many grinders have a very long...

Re: If Davydenko and Nadal had met at RG?

easy for Nadal because the bounce is very high in the French open

the hypothesis "what if he had been in Davy's part of the draw rather than Fed's" is funny, as Federer defeated Nadal 2 weeks later,...
