Re: US Open R2: Andy "Comeback King" Murray [3] def. Adrian Mannarino 5-7 4-6 6-1 6-3

Obviously some traders thought so, as Mannarino was evens at 0-2. Personally I was never really concerned for Murray, the fact he started to run away with that third set before it started to become...

Re: Kyrgios says to Wawrinka that Kokkinakis banged his girlfriend.

Oh for fuck's sake everybody, get a grip. Nowt wrong with what he said. It wasn't insulting, and I'd imagine the comment wasn't slanderous either.

It's called sledging, and it's part of Aussie...

Re: Montreal R2: Muller def. Monfils 6-3 3-6 7-6(4)

Don't understand the love for Muller. I guess his style is a bit different, but it's not like his ground strokes are beautiful, or particularly good for that matter. Nevertheless, if you can serve...

Re: Montreal R1: Stakhovsky d. (W)Peliwo 6-1 5-7 6-2

I know.

I'm just poking fun at the TennisTV commentator who kept referring to him as 'the Russian', rather than 'the Ukrainian'.

Re: CH Aptos QR2: (8) Stepanek def. Bangoura 6-2 5-4 default

Doesn't make sense though. Players smack balls out of courts all the time and never get defaulted. Only warned for ball abuse.

It must have hit somebody in the same way that Tim Henman did all those...

Re: CH Aptos QR2: (8) Stepanek def. Bangoura 6-2 5-4 default

Apparently he smacked a ball away in anger and it hit somebody. :lol:

Usually there's only one man and his dog there for challenger qualies, so Bangoura must have mad skillz to hit the bullseye.

Re: Nadal finishing the year in Top 3

I can't see him winning 4 or 5 matches in a row on hard-courts at present, which this would require him to do. So no, not happening.

Re: Why has Dominic Thiem's serve declined in the past 12-18 months?

Yes, you're right. I remember Verdasco did a similar thing, serving mostly one season around 210km/h (I've definitely seen Thiem go past that mark), to mostly kicking it in the next. I never...

Why has Dominic Thiem's serve declined in the past 12-18 months?

I'm pretty sure when he had his 2014 breakthrough - the Murray match in Rotterdam, the Wawrinka match in Madrid to name but a few examples - he was serving pretty well. Much more powerfully than now,...

Re: Del Potro splites with his coach and physical trainer

Good decision. He's probably never going to play fully, ever again, so it makes sense for these guys to find new jobs.

Re: Karlovic is a cheat

It's not cheating for me. Watch it in real time and don't bother with the silly slow motion replays because what really matters is whether the player intends to hit the ball twice, and people's...

Re: Rank the Champions League Winners (2004-2014)

That Bayern team from 2013 is the best all-round footballing side that I've ever seen. This current Barcelona team is getting there though. Suarez and Neymar are the best sidekicks that Messi has...

Re: Copa América Chile 2015

Colombia are 4th. Belgium 2nd.

It's a joke. Colombia are full of overrated players. Jimmy Rodriguez is very good, but he's not worth the money Madrid paid for him, and has been outperformed by Isco...

Re: Copa América Chile 2015

This is slightly tangential, but out of Belgium and Colombia, which side is most overrated in the FIFA rankings?

Brazil nearly mugged that up. Why does Luiz play?

Re: Stuttgart F: [1]R.Nadal def. [8]V.Troicki 7-6(3) 6-3

I think Nadal is very close now. I'd like to see him play Murray in Queen's this week, then we'll see what's genuinely realistic as far as Wimbledon is concerned.

Re: Who could have beaten Wawrinka at the French Open?

Virtually anybody in the draw 'could' have beaten him. He's the kind of player who throws in a shocker every so often. It was only really the final which he played superbly in, anyway.

Re: 's-Hertogenbosch SF [2] Goffin d. Muller 7-6(4) 6-4

A player of Muller's quality shouldn't be winning a title, grass or not. Hopefully Goffin wins tomorrow and gets his arse closer to the top 10 as soon as possible.

Re: Nadal: 'Matches against Raonic, Fognini or Stan I lost, I should normally win'

Interesting that he didn't mention Murray in Madrid.

Re: Why do you think Fabio Fognini isn't good at the grass?

Where did I say Malisse wasn't always a good grass-courter? And if you think I was implying that, then your inference is wrong.

I'm just saying earlier in his career, he would play really well on...

Re: Why do you think Fabio Fognini isn't good at the grass?

Yeah, he's got all of the additional skills needed to be good on grass, but he's missing a couple of fundamental things.

1) A weapon (even minor weapons suffice [see Hewitt and Murray])
2) A...
