Re: Week 13: Ra’anana, Israel [Entry List]

I find this a very strange week to have a Challenger in Israel. Most Israeli Jews, no matter what level of observance, have some sort of family gathering/Seder the first night of Passover. I can't...

Re: ATP looking into Jaziri's withdrawl yesterday in Montpellier

It's not about being a Muslim. Jaziri himself couldn't care less. His country won't let him and could possibly consider it treasonous if he does.

Re: ATP looking into Jaziri's withdrawl yesterday in Montpellier

Yes it is. This is clearly not a fix, though presumably everyone who realized what would happen bet heavily on Istomin.

Re: ATP looking into Jaziri's withdrawl yesterday in Montpellier

I've said this before, but there's really nothing he can do. It's not just about defying the Tunisian Federation. Playing an Israeli could actually be considered treasonous in his country. This is...

Re: Montpellier R1: Istomin def Jaziri 3-6 ret

It's not just about the money. And it's not just the Federation. Athletes have had their national citizenships revoked by their governments before for competing against Israelis. Nothing in this case...

Re: Montpellier R1: Istomin def Jaziri 3-6 ret

Tunisia was banned from Davis Cup last year for not letting Jaziri play Amir Weintraub in a Challenger. http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2013/11/02/itf-bans-tunisia-from-davis-cup/

Re: Montpellier R1: Istomin def Jaziri 3-6 ret

Athletes have pulled out of Olympic semifinal matches to avoid playing an Israeli. If the country has a no-playing-Israelis rule, they make no exceptions whatsoever.

Re: Montpellier R1: Istomin def Jaziri 3-6 ret

Did anyone see the match? Did he at least pretend to roll an ankle or something to sell the injury? Or he just won the set and walked off?

He's Tunisian. You're gonna ask a guy to switch countries just to play sports?

Re: Montpellier R1: Istomin def Jaziri 3-6 ret

It's not Jaziri's fault at all. It would be very unfair if the ITF punished him instead of the Tunisian Tennis Federation.

Re: Do you regard the Federer/Djokovic rivalry as a top three rivalry of all time?

I don't think it's a top rivalry and here's why. The OP called it evenly-matched. But in reality, it isn't. Federer led the rivalry 13-6 until 2011. Once Nole hit his peak in 2011, it's been 11-5 in...

Re: Players whose only ATP wins come from main draws of Grand slams

Amir Weintraub is officially 8-7 in his career. He is 1-1 in Slams, 7-5 in DC, and 0-1 at other tour-level tournaments.

Re: Indian Wells R2: Fognini [13] d. Harrison [WC] 5-7 6-1 6-4

I think I disagree with Fognini here. The call came before Harrison got a racket on it. It doesn't matter how hard or awkward the shot is. By definition,...

Probably Mahut. No one dislikes him, really.

Re: Nadal: 'Blister on the hand really hurts my serve' (UPDATE @ post #199)

Anything should be allowed for recovery from injury? Anabolic steroids? Is that the argument you are trying to make?

I can't blame Fed for this. It's a common attitude among athletes. We saw it with Dancevic, playing even after he fainted on court.

It's insane. It's not a right mentality. Heat exhaustion isn't...

Re: Week 36: Alphen aan den Rijn (Entry List)

This is amazing. I'm pretty sure Sela's only playing here to get some clay experience before his Davis Cup tie. That's probably the same reason Weintraub was on the Como entry list this past week (he...
