Re: 2014 Live commentary thread vol. 15

Novak needs to get some movement in his legs. He's really suffering from a lack of energy right now and that's causing what should be winners to fall short enough that Nadal can stay in points....

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

Murray is just plain bad right now. Bad strategy maybe caused by poor play.

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

Difference between a top 10 and a top 5 player in a lot of ways is the mental game, and Djokovic is demonstrating that right now. He's not playing anywhere near his best, but pulling it out.

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

Not surprised at all by that from Gulbis. He's really got to play within himself these next few games or Djokovic could run away with it.

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

It's a fine line for Novak. He doesn't have the same margin on his offensive shots as some others, so when he's going through a bad patch against an aggressive player, it can be tough.

Novak has...

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

Gulbis has certainly raised his level (not ballbashing and spraying errors every other shot). Time for Novak to raise his.

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

Don't know what you mean. I made a point that when Roger was at the top of his game, he would raise his level in close out sets against lesser opponents. I'm not talking about a loss of intensity....

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

Not really fair to compare Roger today to Novak today. We will see how Novak is in 5 years, I was comparing Novak to peak Roger, it's a compliment :).

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

This is where Novak differs from Roger or Rafa. They would go for the kill right now, while Novak will attempt to wait out his opponent, usually with bad results.

Re: 2014 Live Commentary Vol 14

Gulbis spraying errors yet. Until he learns to stay in matches during bad spells, he will never be more than he is.

Re: Toni Nadal says it was a mistake to schedule Nadal - Ferrer on Suzanne Lenglen co

I have to agree with Toni, but I don't fault the organizers for prioritizing Monfils either. If you ask me, their whole policy of having one men's and one women's match on PC and one each on SL is...

Re: Roland Garros R4: [2] Djokovic def. [13] Tsonga 6-1 6-4 6-1

Some great stuff by Novak in the first set. Tsonga was pretty horrid, but credit to Djokovic, he came at Tsonga hard and took him out early.

Re: RG R4: Gulbis [18] def. Federer [4] 6-7 (5) 7-6 (3) 6-2 4-6 6-3

Training absolutely will help. Did you not see Roger playing at the beginning of the year? Moved much better than all of 2013 and his net closing speed at the AO was remarkable. He's not close to...

Re: Roland Garros R3: [7] Murray def[28] Kohlschreiber 3-6 6-3 6-3 4-6 12-10

Got it done in the end. Some shaky moments, but this tournament is shaping up the rest of the year nicely for Muzza. Looking forward to the match against Verdasco, should be a fun one.

Re: RG R4: Gulbis [18] def. Federer [4] 6-7 (5) 7-6 (3) 6-2 4-6 6-3

Gulbis did enough to win, though honestly he probably should have wrapped this up in 4. Better player won for sure and I hope Gulbis can continue to work on his mental game. He's got a solid tennis...

Re: Roland Garros R3: [7] Murray - [28] Kohlschreiber 3-6 6-3 6-3 4-6 *7-7 (SUSPENDED

What a mess Andy made of things. Should have been a straightforward 4 setter, instead it's a battle to the end. At this point, just hope Murray comes out and plays a good few games tomorrow to save...

Re: Thiem: "Nadal's top spin is very hard to deal with. I have a lot to improve"

Very astute comments from the 20 year old. A lot of players have the physical ability to be top 10, not many have the mental. Looks like Thiem does. Hope he can continue to make strides over the next...

Re: RG R1: Garcia-Lopez def. (3) Wawrinka 6-4 5-7 6-2 6-0

Crazy result. Of all the top guys Stan definitely had the hardest first round, but I would never have expected this result. Shockingly bad. Wawrinka needs to go back to the drawing board, cause if...

Re: Roland Garros - Main Draw revealed + poll added

Nice draw overall. Wawrinka with probably the overall toughest draw. Nadal has quite a tough draw. Djokovic has a decent one and Federer's is fairly easy.

Re: Flashback to 2007 AO SF Federer Vs Roddick, GOAT Fed, or hopeless Roddick?

Usually a match like this does not happen without help from both sides. Roger was great but this was not Roddick's best.
