Re: Best player ever to never win a Grand Slam title?

There haven't been loads of great clay courters without the FO like Coria, sorry. It was a short peak but a high one. Ferrer is underrated, I agree.

Re: Best player ever to never win a Grand Slam title?

Nalbandian is the most obvious choice and he is mine generally too but Coria on clay would surely have one of the best peak clay games you could ever see. He was somewhat unlucky in a variety of...

Re: Federer's 'Chum Jetzt' becoming as bad as Nadal's Vamos's on UE's.

LOL. I hope this was a joke.



Basically, we can sum up the comments here with: when it's a player one of you likes, it's great and when it's one you don't it's classless, fake etc.

Re: Ernests Gulbis slams tennis hierarchy for treatment of low-ranked.

Exactly right. Not only that, but he took cheap shots at the same guys saying he "didn't even know their names" which hardly implies a culture of respect of the good but not great tennis players now...

Re: RG R1: [2] Andy "Clayray" Murray def. [Q] Radek Stepanek 3-6 3-6 6-0 6-3 7-5

Yea, I can't believe a guy named "Andy Mugray" gets called a Murray hater...


All the big guys have awkward matches now and then and Radek can bring that out in a guy.

I hope Andy picks it up...

Re: Tennis players asked who they think the current most overrated/underrated player

I think they might be afraid to say what they really think even here. I think it's outside of 1000 but they don't want to sound bad perhaps or maybe the question didn't allow for that as an answer.

Re: Federer: "I belong to another species; I embody the sport of tennis"

I agree with the general thrust of what you say though Djokovic was also a part of that to some extent too.

The main thing is that to consistently have legendary matches, you need 2 legendary...

Re: Federer: "I belong to another species; I embody the sport of tennis"

Djokovic could get there in terms of numbers(but really he's a long way away from it right now so I would advise caution) but you can't create excitement with one awesome player by himself.

If you are really being serious, I'll give you a reply:


When you say the "tour" really what we mean in such discussions are the other top few guys.

Re: McEnroe and Murray estimate the top women's player would be ranked 600 to 1000 AT

The hitting partners for top wta players are males who aren't even ranked. And they can beat them without a problem, as the top wta players even have said.


You recall Serena's old partner,...

Re: Is Nadal a good defender?

Only a poster as ridiculous as "Clutch" could suggest that Nadal wasn't a good defender.

How long until Clutch's next ban?

Re: IW QF:[4] R.Nadal def. [5]K.Nishikori 6-4 6-3

Re: IW QF:[4] R.Nadal def. [5]K.Nishikori 6-4 6-3

Nice to see some improvement from Rafa. Stepping in on the second serve more aggressively than he has in some time.

The next match is really just a barometer of where he is.

Re: Federer says he is less talented than Nadal

No, Federer spoke English quite a bit more growing up than you are letting on here and I have seen him be quite eloquent.

Also talent is a pretty simple English word with similar words in the...

Re: IW and Shanghai to become "Super Master"?

I couldn't agree more. Dangerous precedent here which would destabilize the tour and weaken the other Masters series events.

Whatever Fed meant exactly might be debatable but there is no question that he has great respect...

Are you seriously saying you trust a for profit corporation's "word" in regard to its star representative more than the agency which is actually in charge of examining the issue in the first place?
