Re: AO Final: Federer def Nadal 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3

And let's face it, RAFAism's record so far this year hasn't been good. Remember that signature? :)

Re: The "RF" chat thread

She's been around, hasn't she? I'm sure I've seen her av with "Can't be bothered any more" or something.

Re: Players Wearing the Same Gear

Even this year's AO final was quite difficult from a distance, especially with a blurry picture. I'm not often glad that Nadal is a lefty, but it did make life that bit simpler.

Re: Why was Nadal injured in 2014 Australian Open final?

So why'd you ask the question if you knew the answer?

Pretty sure the blisters had healed enough not to be a factor by the final.

Re: What if Federer ends up with losing h2h against all Big 4 members?

"Started"? He'd suffered from them in his teens, and when he won Wimbledon for the first time, so it's not as if it was anything particularly new.

Re: Federitis Aid Network - a picture is a thousand treatments

That's not the AO practice outfit, is it?

Re: Davis Cup WG R1: Edmund def. Shapovalov 6-3 6-4 2-1 Defaulted (GBR def. CAN 3-2)

Of course. It completely ruined Tim Henman's career, didn't it?

Re: Wawrinka withdraws from Rotterdam due to a knee injury suffered at the AO

Didn't I see an interview or something with Stan dating from late last year in which he was already talking about having a problem with the knee and having it taped?

Get well soon, Stan.

Re: Fifth set tiebreaks are killing these DC matches

I'm not necessarily anti DC matches ending on a TB, I just don't think it should happen as early as 6-6. Maybe 10-10 or something? That would prevent them from totally exhausting the players while...

Re: Federer needs to win Wimbledon this year

Did anyone say he definitely would have won? I was only correcting the mistaken belief that Roger started winning only once the roof was closed, whereas in fact he was already ahead in the 3rd set...

Re: Davis Cup WG R1: Pospisil (CAN) def. Evans (GBR) 7-6 (3) 6-4 3-6 7-6 (4) tied 2-2

Ironic that towards the end of the AO John Lloyd was predicting that it could be a 5-0 whitewash, given the absence of each country's top player. I guess he wasn't aware of Pospisil's record in DC :)

Re: Davis Cup WG R1: Edmund 6-3, 6-4 2-1 Shapovalov (Defaulted!, GB wins 3-2)

I'm wondering whether the umpire is also slightly concussed, or whether it was just the shock of the impact which stunned him. I hope he makes a full recovery. And I am sure Shapovalov won't make...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada IC report published)

Well, yes ... and no. The injury took place a year previously - and it's not as if he hadn't played since, as Wimbledon 2016 proved. So, short on match play, maybe (although he had what, 6, Hopman...

Re: Federer needs to win Wimbledon this year

No he wasn't. Amazing how many people's memories seem to be faulty on this point. Federer had changed the momentum of the match, taken the second set and was leading in the third by the time the...

Re: Davis Cup WG R1: Pospisil (CAN) def. Edmund (GBR) 6-4 6-1 7-6 (3) (tied 1-1)

I think he has a bit of a reputation for that, doesn't he?

I suspect "We" = moderators only, or at least it does in the forum I moderate on, and believe me, it's a pain in the backside - fiddly and takes forever.

Really? When did it become slow, then? I thought the change was around 2003?

Re: The Australian Open thread, Allez RF!

Thanks. As I suspected. It's just that in the past I've wanted to belatedly see reaction to some match or other, and never known where to find them. They don't get marked with the starting...
