Was the surface change in Madrid actually made in benefit of Tiriac himself?

Come to think about it. What kind of "benefit" could the surface have done to the tournament? I mean, yes, blue clay is a bit more visible than red clay, but does that mean more people watching...

Why is it the Pro Slams weren't seen as the "Official Slams" after Open Era started?

I mean, everyone counts the pre-Open-Era Amateur Slams as the "true Slams" when probably the best players (Arguably, the pros) didn't play it?


It's a big issue, I think.

Pancho Gonzales would have...

Re: SIGN THE PETITION: Let's do something about the surface homogenization in tennis!

You have my total consent, masterclass.

Maybe you could make another petition (the more we have the better) on another site (since many don't use twitter).

I agree we should discuss our proposal,...

Re: SIGN THE PETITION: Let's do something about the surface homogenization in tennis!

But there's no other way to acknowledge the people signing.

It was either Twitter or Facebook, and both are equally used.

Chose Twitter since there's a strong tennis community there and people...

Re: SIGN THE PETITION: Let's do something about the surface homogenization in tennis!

Oh cmon, it's not a failed cause. After all, why not try? I mean, what would you lose? 10 mins of your life to create a twitter?



Just make one, it's easy, it won't take more than 5...

SIGN THE PETITION: Let's do something about the surface homogenization in tennis!!

Since many agreed with my idea, I started a Twitition to make a change in the Tour's surfaces.

Let's try and get 1000 signs and send it to the ATP/ITF (they will...

Re: "Speed up the courts" thread

I'm all for it, but please help me!

How should we name our petition?

ˇ"Stop the surface homogenisation in tennis?"
ˇ"Speed up the courts?"
ˇ"For a safer health to our players and for the sake of...

You guys, I know it could be totally WORTHLESS, but why not try to do something to make the ATP and the ITF change the surfaces?? Creating a x100000 threads while we notice nothing being made about...

Do you think H2H and Match-ups are important in a GOAT debate?

I don't really get why, but reading some comments after Rafa's win today, some say that Roger is ruining his GOAT status by having such a bad H2H record against a contemporary like Nadal.


In my...

The Australian Open Vault!! (Free matches of the AO online since 1998!!)

This is the best thing ever. :cool: Surprised there was no thread about it.

A lot of matches online since 1998, it has the 2009 Nadal vs Verdasco, the 2005 Federer vs Safin, and even the long 2003...

Re: How come New Zealand sucks at tennis?

Not quite. They actually had Anthony Wilding, winner of 6 Slam titles (and 4 consecutive Wimbledons! :eek:) Won Wimbledon in 1910, 1911, 1912 and 1913, and won the Aussie Open in 1906 and 1909. He...

Re: Which was the best Fedal match in Roland Garros??

But ignoring that option, it's a close battle...

Which was the best Fedal match in Roland Garros??

As we all know, Roger and Rafa met many times at the French Open. Neither of them though was a true classic, but in spite of that, some were high-quality matches. But which one do you consider the...
