Re: Paris main draw out

Will Roddick go to Europe to play this tournament? When he pulled out of Madrid, there was a lot of speculation that he'd stay in the US until TMC, then practice on clay for Davis Cup final in Spain....

Re: Out of the current players, who would make a good commentator?

Looking over the current top 50 list, I realize how few of them speak English as their first language. I'm sure many of them are plenty intelligent, and they must all love the game, but I won't...

Re: Predict the other four finalists to TMC

If Coria's healthy and wants to play, I bet he'll have enough points to qualify. Currently, Safin and Agassi are battling it out for 8th & final spot (we know who McIngvale wants!). They'll each need...

Re: The best racquet

Alfonso, you should try the Prince Original Graphite. I used to use the More Control, but switched, and am loving it.

It's also what Ferrero, Coria, etc are using (underneath the paint)

Re: US Open Series, a moneymaking blockbuster

Bonus points to sol(#) for use of the word foment!

Re: Tuesday OP & Scores

Re: "SE" stands for?

Isn't it also based on an injury-protected ranking? Or has Tojo been back long enough that he's run out of those?

Re: Why is Kiefer only good on hardcourt

New Q:
Why is Kiefer only good when he's NOT on US TV? You've got to respect his recent results, but everytime he gets broadcast over here, he looks really average.
Unfortunately, I think there's...

I get to watch TTC at my folks' place (they pick it up with one of those old, huge, satellite dishes, which they got because they're so far out in the country).

Re: Favorite in Athens?

Is the tournament best of 5 sets, or best of 3 sets? (or one of those awkward ones that changes in the semis/finals?)

Re: Rexall Centre-Toronto

Is it finished? I heard it was looking shaky for next week's TMS, but hopefully reports of its delays were greatly exaggerated.

Re: More Wisdom from Mal

"The Wisdom of MaliVai Washington"

based on his TV commentary and 'journalism' on, this would be one of the thinnest books in print.

Fewer pages than "Green Eggs and Ham"?

Re: Canas won - Do you think Gaudio is back to his choking state?

I don't think it's choking, but he does seem to have a knack for losing sets by dramatic scores (0-6, 1-6), is he just that streaky?
into and out of his rhythm suddenly?

Re: Friday order of play

Looks like some lawyer saw it, and advised them "if you're only going to provide random updates, you can't call it live ... but you can call it 'live'"

My favorite feature of this tournament's web site is the "live scoreboard," since it actually displays the quote marks.

Re: Who is the most no-nonsense player of all time?

Borg or Wilander. unflappable, and would look cool as ice while they wore an opponent down, zipping backhand passes.

Pete Sampras seemed to veer from automaton to drama queen (puking, crying). No...

Re: Gasquet d Robredo (6) 61 64 at Mercedes Cup

Did anybody see this match? Was Gasquet truly impressive? Was Robredo just cranky & off his game? A bit of both?

Gasquet is one of the youngsters who's received some rave reviews ... I'm dying to...

Re: Which actor would you choose to play your favorite tennis player on a movie ?

He's not my favorite player, but Andy Roddick could be played by Seann William Scott (from American Pie)

What do you think? Can't you picture him with the trucker hat on?
