Re: Why Murray lost and why Federer will lose to Nadal: Simon Reed's curse Resurrecti

But wait...he says Murray can beat Nadal certainly, but he is not so certain about Roger

So doesn't that mean Roger will win?

Re: Jim Courier Temper Tantrum (video)

I don't think that was on purpose. However, I must say, this guy Courier was on the tail end of his career when I started watching tennis. He was playing some piddly indoor tournament and had the...

Re: Rafael “RAFA” Nadal is on the Top of The Slow List

How about a breakdown of percentage of times warned per serve point? Nadal clearly has played more matches than Isner Fognini and Del Potro this year. Still, he needs to stop picking at himself...

Re: WWW ? WTF F : [1] Nadal - [2] Djokovic

All the ESPN and TC 'pundits' save one had Fed vs Nole in the final. Nole winning, of course. One had Nole vs Rafa, Nole winning. Broadcast everywhere. You know what this means. Nadal...

Re: Why isn't the media talking about Kei Nishikori more?

Agreed. People get all excited when he gets a great win...first title at Del Ray, Ferru at US Open, Japan title, this Fed win...but reality is they are few and far between. I love watching this...

Re: Why isn't the media talking about Kei Nishikori more?

He is not marketable in the U.S. or Europe, plain and simple. Media will ignore him.

Knowledgeable tennis folks will not ignore him. Even yesterday, before his match with Fed, the more...

Re: Indian Wells tournament expanding; adding 8,000 seat stadium.

I love tennis in general, and I loved Indian Wells when I was there, only because I loved the tennis so much I was willing to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to what was going on there. Of course,...

Re: Indian Wells tournament expanding; adding 8,000 seat stadium.

If you have never been to IW or a restaurant out there as an 'ethnic' patron, you really should not offer your opine.

Whether Ellison wants to take a suggestion on how to expand his beloved...

Re: Indian Wells tournament expanding; adding 8,000 seat stadium.

If larry Ellison wants to elevate this tournament to Fifth Grand Slam Level, and distinguish it from, say, Miami, he could start by letting DirecTV view all the courts and stream them live from the...

Re: Indian Wells R64: Yen-Hsun Lu defeats Martin Klizan 7-6(5) 7-6(5)

Lu took out Roddick at Wimbledon. He's got game and heart. Don't care how many Challengers it takes to get there...if you played and won them, you are a fighter and deserve to be there. It would...

Re: Is there a way to watch Djokovic vs Federer semifinal online in the US?

Re: RG R4: How many games will Monaco win against Nadal?

In their clay match ups, Monaco has not really been able to take more than 2 or 3 games per set. Now, if this was blue clay, or a hard court, I'd say otherwise. Monaco having nearly been beaten to...

Re: Chair umpires in Grand Slam finals?

Asderaki is the best women's umpire choice. If it is Lang, too bad. She is ok, but not the best. Layahni is fun, but not for the stuffy Wimby atmosphere. (I like him the best but this is Wimby.) ...

Re: Who will be on Philippe Chatrier on Friday?

It will be the Gasquet v Bellucci because they have not had this french guy on Chartrier yet.

And there is no way a good tournament organizer will not have Nole v Delpo. Two Grand Slam champs and a...

Re: What is wrong with Nadal? (serious discussion)

Absolutely, this is where it began. He ended 2010 on a fairly good note: made the ATP world tour finals indoors and nearly won. Won exo before AO. But got disappointingly derailed at Australia due...

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

2011 Nole vs 2008 Nadal at RG, well no chance for Nole. Rafa in 3. Nole played like his current form for one set, and still couldn't win it in 2008. 2008 Rafa was a machine at RG.

Re: Rome F: Djokovic def. Nadal 6-4 6-4

Yes, in US Open 2010 final, the games in the first set were just as tight, but it was Nole smashing his racquet and making more errors and getting rattled. The mental seesaw is tipping in Nole's...

Re: Is there a danger that Djokovic could burn out for the FO ala Rafa 2009?

Not a chance. His parents are not getting a divorce!! :lol:

Re: Will Rafael sweep the clay court season

Re: Will Rafael sweep the clay court season

Well, I am late to the discussion, as MC and Barcelona have already played. My two cents:

Nadal's best surface is clay. Clay court tourneys with big points are his best chance at retaining No. 1...
