Re: Toronto Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated July 22, 2016)

in 2012, the Canada Open was the week after the Olympics and there was a change of surface and a change of continent : that there were many withdrawals was predictable.

But this time, honestly, I...

Re: Kitzbühel R2: J. Melzer (Nr. 421) def. [1] Thiem 6:3 7:5

Thiem is a similar player to Wawrinka, although with a more and positive mind and more fighting spirit.

When he's not on, he can make many errors, doesn't mean that he tanked.

Re: Kitzbühel R2: J. Melzer def. [1] Thiem 6:3 7:5

last time they did (in Wimbledon qualies I think), Jürgen had said that he had hated it and wished that it would not happen again.

I don't think they will like this match at all.

And I don't...

Re: Playing style (aka "beauty") are irrevelant in debates of which player was better

Re: Playing style (aka "beauty") are irrevelant in debates of which player was better

I never spoke about peak level. I said that tennis has a long history and it's limited thinking "goat" means "greatest of era-X style tennis" imo.

Probably Laver would have succeeded little in...

Re: Playing style (aka "beauty") are irrevelant in debates of which player was better

You may want to think that BUT there's another factor : tennis has a long history and styles have changed a lot in time.

I think it's interesting to think if this or that player would have...

Re: The modern prototype ATP player is tall, mechanical & sadly one dimensional

Yes, we agree, except that I'm not that sure that there are so few good small players. Maybe smaller guys need more time to develop as well (see Goffin, or Fognini vs Querrey, and see what happens to...

Re: Federer withdraws from Rogers Cup

It's not about Murray or Nadal, I said it very clearly I want him to be in the top-8, for two reasons : take part in the WTF (because he usually can get points there) and be seeded highly enough to...

Re: The modern prototype ATP player is tall, mechanical & sadly one dimensional

yes as it's vastly agreed on MTF, Ferrer is extremely talented, that's why he managed to have such a great carreer despite his short size :D

Thiem, Goffin (did you watch him against Raonic in Wimbledon ?), Nishikori, Wawrinka, Ferrer, the big-4 ... among youngsters why choose Fritz and not Coric or Chung ? why Delbonis and not Dimitrov or...

Re: Federer withdraws from Rogers Cup

I understand your point of course, and I don't like to see Roger losing, but Roger, contrary to many of his fans, has shown that he forgets quickly about losses, esp. if he plays well.

Of course I...

Re: Federer withdraws from Rogers Cup

1. We don't know if he's fit at the moment : if he's not, that's a very bad news. After Wimbledon, he said that he needed to play to be competitive then he planned to play Toronto.

Re: Stuttgart- welcome back Fed!

Basically it was Thiem's best set, and I might say also Roger's most consistent one.

Thiem started strongly but Roger saved his first service game (saving a breakpoint) thanks to a strong serving....

Fognini, Leo Mayer, Delbonis, Pella (and even Monaco who didn't compete in Davis cup recently) ??
