Re: WWW Wimbledon R4: Berdych vs Simon

As far as I recall, he didn't play any of those at Wimbledon aside from Roddick who could play some mean tennis on grass at his best and "baby" Nadal who was 10x times the better grasscourter in...

Re: Just to what extent Nadal is "done" ?

Different eras, different conditions and they achieved excellence in different ways. McEnroe dominated both singles and doubles in 1984, that's just unrivaled. Agassi won Wimbledon from the baseline...

Re: Why players lose/injured after beating Nadal?

I don't think it has to do with beating Nadal specifically, last 4 years he's prone to losing (whereas in the past he prevailed in closed matches against them) to trigger happy journeymen (aside from...

Re: Could Berdych Win Wimbledon 2015?

Berdych and Stan had about the same amount of deep runs and early slam losses in the last 2 years and he has been overally streaky at Wimbledon. Regardless, my point is that Stan can catch fire even...

Re: Could Berdych Win Wimbledon 2015?

Normally, I'd say it's a toss-up as both can trouble Fed (who hates playing Simon, even when he wins) but since this is grass, Berdych is more dangerous for him IMO.

Berdych recent results aren't...

Re: Just to what extent Nadal is "done" ?

Obviously, he's one of the greatest ever.



That's an arbitrary method to use. McEnroe's results after 25 would look pedestrian compared to most tennis greats even though his 1984 is probably the...

Re: Can Djokovic beat Nadal 10 times in a row?

Nah, if Nadal's current form doesn't improve he's gonna start ducking Novak everywhere, gotta preserve that H2H.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 19

Brown-Troicki getting interesting, still can't believe that inside-in FH Brown hit.

Re: Dimitrov main issue: is he too dumb to play high level tennis?

He has a strong FH (like many players on tour), 1HBH and some touch but that's where the similarity ends. He doesn't have anywhere near Fed's footwork, anticipation, transition from defense to...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 19

Kinda predictable so far. Troicki all around solid (and serving really well) while Brown can't repeat a great performance.

Re: What are your reasons for Nadal's sudden irrelevance on Grass?

Don't worry, I take everything they say with a grain of salt. Especially if their analysis of the strength of the field depends entirely on one player's performance and consider sporadic years to...

Re: What are your reasons for Nadal's sudden irrelevance on Grass?

Yes, as far as I've heard competition/level of the field can jump to insane heights in the span of a single year (let alone two) and entire eras can suddenly transform from weak to strong. The most...

This is gonna be a slugfest, should be entertaining.

Re: Your favorite Rafa accomplishment

Not a Nadal fan but his most impressive record for me is winning a slam for 10 years in a row, that's some crazy consistency.

Re: Wimbledon R2: [Q] Brown def. [10] Nadal, 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4

As far as I remember, Wimbledon is pretty generous (to the player) in their UEs count. Also, Brown was rushing net like crazy, those type of matches usually have low UEs count (netted passing shot is...

Re: Can Dustin Brown win Wimbledon?

Would be great for the game if he ended up winning the whole thing but if I'm honest, I think he'll have a letdown after a big win and lose against Troicki in the next round. The upper limit is a QF...

Re: What are your reasons for Nadal's sudden irrelevance on Grass?

Was always vulnerable in 1st week at Wimbledon, lost half a step, slower reaction time, some loss of confidence etc. It doesn't take a lot to tip the scales in favour of the other guy, people call...

Re: Wimbledon R2: [Q] Brown def. [10] Nadal, 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4

At his best argument you can make for every Wimbledon winner ever, it doesn't hold water (especially if you consider how different modern conditions are compared to every other era). I could just as...

Re: Which performance against Nadal in Wimbly did you enjoy more?

Brown by far, he beat him with craftiness and guile, other guys just overpowered him (well, maybe not Darcis, can't remember that match much to be honest).

Re: Wimbledon R2: (2)Roger Federer def. Sam Querrey 6-4 6-2 6-2

The biggest positive sign for Fed from this match is that he actually smacked that FH a few times, looked like a semi-dominant shot.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 18

He wouldn't miss this many FHs against most players, Brown gives him no rhytm whatsoever. Volleys, dropshots, flat bombs, junkballing etc.

Re: Wimbledon R2 - V. Troicki def. A. Bedene 6:4 3:6 6:2 6:4

Oh definitely, it ain't over till the last point but just saying, don't see Brown playing two great matches in a row. Viktor ain't an easy opponent, when in form he's a top 10 player (borderline...
