Re: Federer withdraws from Rogers Cup

He certainly *did* overplay last year: probably didn't expect to make finals in both, and was hedging his bets. Plus, given the scheduling pattern of those tournaments last year, it would seem...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada could test using hair

Well, I don't, and I don't. But then I'd never heard of him til you mentioned him, so maybe that doesn't count :)

Re: Federer withdraws from Rogers Cup

Actually, *had* Fed ever announced he *was* going to play Montreal? I didn't think he'd announced anything beyond Wimbledon apart from Basel.

I don't think this is right. Can anyone provide a link to the original quote - in whichever language it was? My reading of his comments was more along the lines of "This would be a real high on...

Re: Is Murray overhyped on grass?

Ah. So that's why he lost in straight sets to Federer? Silly me, and silly everyone else who said it was a Federer masterclass.



And I think Federer would have won 2015 Wimbledon if he hadn't had...

Would've been more surprised if he'd shown up, tbh.

Re: Federer withdraws from Rogers Cup

Yep. Always expected this, after last year, and the fact that he has a DC tie to play right after the USO pretty much confirmed it. May also need a proper holiday post-Wimbledon? So, as long as he...

Re: Paul Annacone interview before Federer-Murray match

Which would be missing the point: what people who haven't been watching tennis for over a decade tend not to realise is that it's *now* - and the last 10 years - which is the anomaly. We are...

Re: Is Murray overhyped on grass?

I think the trouble is that it *was* a 3-set match. If it had been BO5 with the same number of games, at 4.5 hours it would still have been an exceptionally long match (especially by Federer's...

Assuming that will be Roger's last DC tie ...

So. Now We Are Six - and I'm sure there's a great quote from there that I could pick.

Re: Wimbledon 2015 : Where is the love for Djokovic ? From Telegraph

Given that tickets for the final would have sold out maybe 3 months beforehand, nobody would have gone because of who the finalists were - they might have *hoped* that a given player would be...

Well, if he doesn't, he'll have to play the first one next year, whenever that is.

And Haase's been playing well recently ...

Re: Wimbledon 2015 : Where is the love for Djokovic ? From Telegraph

I seem to remember there weren't many papers bothered putting the Wimbledon result on the front page at all - or am I confusing it with the result of the semi-final? I'm afraid that's the way the...

Re: Keep strong Judy Murray - Feliciano Lopez got married

Lots of Europeans do: have you not noticed?

But is it usual for women in Spain to wear long dresses to weddings, or are the photos all from a very early-starting party?

Re: Davis Cup QF: Murray def. Simon 4-6 7-6 6-3 6-0 [GBR def. FRA 3-1]

You "guess" wrong. Simon had a nasty fall at the beginning of the 4th set and injured his ankle, losing his serve in the process. It was clear that he was struggling to compete from then...

Re: Can Great Britain win the 2015 Davis Cup ?

Let's face it, the field is so lightweight now that it's not inconceivable. But let's see if GB get past Australia first.

Re: Davis Cup, QF: Nedovyesov def. Kyrgios 7:6(5), 6:7(2), 7:6(5), 6:4 / KAZ 2-0 AUS

Yes. Don't forget they came close to stopping Switzerland's run last year, when Stan was going through an "off" patch.

Re: Race for the #2 seed at USO - Can Murray catch Federer?

You're right about the first part, but are you sure Fed will play in Canada? I have my doubts - although I doubt we shall know until the DC relegation tie draw is out: if he needs to play in that...

Re: **************************Wimbledon 2015 Thread******************

Yes, it's a shame the serve didn't show up at the same sort of level that it's been for the rest of the tournament. But OTOH it has perhaps been a source of too many cheap points for him recently? ...

Re: WWW? Wimbledon 2015 F: [1] Djokovic vs [2] Federer - #TheRematch

My main question is whether has Federer peaked a round too soon. I guess we shall see. One thing I do know is that I don't intend to make the same mistake I made last year, when I assumed that,...
