Re: USO QF: Del Potro def. Federer 7-5 3-6 7-6(8) 6-4

I noticed this as well. Fed was just chipping or blocking the return and coming in on nothing shots and getting passed with relative ease. I actually thought at one point he was tanking but that...

Re: USO QF: Del Potro def. Federer 7-5 3-6 7-6(8) 6-4

When Federer is behind against the best or guys he fears, you know he will lose. It's almost as though he tanked - perhaps he feared he'd get his ass handed to him by Nadal in the next round which is...

Re: WWW USO QF: [3]Roger Federer v. [24]Juan Martín Del Potro

If Del Potro takes some of those magic pain killers her took against Thiem, he could at least get a set, maybe more. Perhaps Roger should get some of those magic pills too.

Re: US Open R4: [24] Del Potro def. [6] Thiem 1-6 2-6 6-1 7-6(1) 6-4, saves 2 MPs

My friend told me yesterday that she thought Thiem was doing well and could win it. I told her that there was still plenty of time for him to f*ck it up and sure enough, true to form, he f*cked it...

Re: 2017 Live Commentary Vol. 12

God damn it. I like Del Potro but someone else, like Thiem who is supposed to be winning slams just needs to do something here.

Re: 2017 Live Commentary Vol. 12

My friend said yesterday that Thiem was looking good and I told her that there was still plenty of time for him to mess it up. I must be Nostradamus.

re: Fabio Fognini kicked out of US open (Update: Decision made, condition on behaviour)

Anyone who plays tennis on any level knows it's hard not to swear sometimes. I have taken to swearing in Albanian so those around me have no idea what I'm saying. Imagine what it is like for a...

Re: WWW US Open R4: [3] Federer vs. [33] Kohlschreiber

I used to think the same about guys like Thiem but now I'm having my doubts. I definitely think Rublev has a chance but Goffin? :confused: Um, no. Like him but I'm realistic.

Re: WWW US Open R4: [3] Federer vs. [33] Kohlschreiber

You know there are some serious holes in the draw when Federer is playing Kohlschreiber in the 4th round of a slam. (No disrespect intended, but come on.) Federer will make quick work of Phil in 3...

Re: USO R3: [1] Nadal def. Mayer 6-7 (3) 6-3 6-1 6-4

Just wishful thinking. I actually think Federer is going to win - he destroyed Lopez and is now playing something similar to his standard level.

Re: USO R3: [1] Nadal def. Mayer 6-7 (3) 6-3 6-1 6-4

Nice first set from Mayer but then routine inability to keep it going against Nadal who managed to raise his game. Known result really but hardly a suggestion Nadal is going to win this thing.

Re: 2017 Live Commentary Vol. 12

You are absolutely 100% here. Nadal never goes away in a match and his intimidating demeanor suggests a strength that is difficult to break down. Anyone who says that Nadal isn't mentally tough are...

Re: 2017 Live Commentary Vol. 12

Absolutely - in tennis mental toughness is like 90% of the battle and no one is more mentally tough than Nadal. So so see the mighty crack shows it is possible for players to get under his skin and...

You just can't get away with profanity in Italian or any other language these days.

Re: 2017 Live Commentary Vol. 12

I love seeing Nadal get mad. It's one of the great joys in life. Love seeing him crack mentally since normally he is so strong. He'll probably still win this match though.

Re: Wimbledon Final 2017: Roger Federer def. Maric Čilić 6-3 6-1 6-4

This was probably the most lackluster men's final I've seen in years. I assumed Federer would win in straight sets but hoped for a more competitive match. Cilic looked nervous from the start. His...

Re: Miami SF: [4] Federer def. [12] Kyrgios 7-6(9) 6-7(9) 7-6(5)

Nick may be a character and do some unpopular things at times but he's got big game and I want to him succeed. I thought the crowd was despicable. Always a fan of Roger, always nice to see him have...

Re: Acapulco QF: Querrey def. [4] Thiem 6-1 7-5

Even though Querrey served well, it must be said, Thiem was garbage. Couldn't serve out the 2nd set, couldn't convert any break point chances when Querrey served for the match. Just typical garbage...

Re: Rio de Janeiro F: Thiem def. Carreño Busta 7-5 6-4

This win should give Thiem some confidence which has been lacking from his game for some time. I thought he might bottle this one after losing serve in the first set, but he is starting to show a...

Re: Delray Beach F Sock d. Raonic w/o

When a player retires for the final, I actually hope he is really injured and stays away from the game for a tournament or two so that one gets the idea it wasn't just a precautionary thing. The fans...

Re: Toni Nadal: It is my last season on tour with Rafa

Seems kind of like Uncle Tones doesn't feel important anymore, like his opinions aren't valued, so he is shifting his focus to other things. Fair enough but I think Tones is as important to Rafa as...

Re: How does the AO now compare in speed in comparison to the rebound ace years?

All I remember about Rebound Ace is complaints from the players about how hot and sticky the court got and injuries.

Re: AO Final: Federer def Nadal 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3

The court speed played in Fed's favor and I don't think the timing of the re-surfacing of the courts was in any way ironic or a coincidence. The cards were stacked in Federer's favor and I am so...
