Re: I believe Pete Sampras retired too early.

Yeah, sure thing. :rolleyes: It could have been that Fed was just a whole lot better across all surfaces, with more depth of game and talent than Pete? I mean he did defeat Pete on center court of...

Re: I believe Pete Sampras retired too early.

Pete was cream crackered. Hell of a way to go out, but he was spent.

Re: Prediction: Rafael Nadal will win Roland Garros 2015.

Interesting to see Nadal's odds drift out as far as 3.4 for RG. Nole now down to stronger favourite, 2.08....close to odds-on.

Re: The reason Nadal is struggling is his new racquet

Anyone that thinks Nadal has done anything major to his racquet for clay season is radio rental. He probably added another mill of lead tape.

Re: Barcelona [R3]: Fognini def. Nadal 6-4 7-6(6)

Re: Are you going to bet big money on Nadal at the RG ?

I have told you before, and again here....he isn't even favourite for Roland Garros. If you think he will win it, his odds must surely be very tempting indeed. Free money!

As you see, Djokovic is...

Re: Toni Nadal:"If we continue as we are, Rafael's level is good enough to win RG"

Nadal categorically isn't favourite for RG. As of now, the market is:

Djokovic - 2.16
Nadal - 3.05

Nole has been the favourite for most of the year, but Nadal has drifted out a bit after his...

Has there ever been a coach that talks as Toni? :rolleyes: Such white noise by this point...he is so often working an angle that it is pointless listening to his drivel.

Nadal may or may not be able...

Re: MC F: Djokovic d. Berdych 7-5 4-6 6-3

Sure is. He looks bang on target to be the "king of the tune-ups". Still a long way shy on the biggest and most important stages though.

Re: Monte Carlo SF: Djokovic def. Nadal 6-3 6-3

Done and dustered....kippers and custard.

Nadal's sole tactic against Djoke:

1. Shovel shit, fast.
2. Fling in Nole's general direction, fast.
3. Hope that some of it sticks.

Re: Nadal confirms racquet change:"I have more spin and power"

I don't think a whole bag of jinxing is going to be needed to derail the possibility of the RafaSlam in Aus.

Re: WWW Monte Carlo QF: (5) Ferrer - (3) Nadal?

Just saw on Betfair that Nadal has gone favourite for RG after winning two matches on clay. He may well get in form to challenge for La Decima, but he is a long way behind Djoke at this point, no?...

Re: Monte Carlo R3: [3] Nadal def. [15] Isner 7-6(6) 4-6 6-3

A good one for Nadal to come through....certainly were chances for Isner to take this one.

I think we are going to find Nadal's fitness badly exposed somewhere over the next two...

Re: WTF is underrated.

I tend to see more a link between the decline in quality/excitement and the decline in surface speed for an indoor event.

Re: Monte Carlo R3: Monfils def. Federer 6-4 7-6(5)

Fed not really showing many of his matchplay abilities today....a bit frustrated and slappy. Nice win for Monf. without doing a whole lot. Good chance for Dimi here.

Re: Is Nadal the only man who can save the tennis this season?

Not really an all-viewpoint-encompassing poll now is it? Someone else will end him. Fed at Wimbledon....Stan at RG....or more likely someone on a good day or a youngster stepping up.
