Re: Davydenko match probed for match fixing

All of the suspicious matches were not discussed in the article.

According to the author: "Over the last three or four years, several bookmakers have shared information and kept lists of results...

Re: Video of a 5-year-old tennis prodigy

As I get it, the promotion of Jan, via websites and TV interviews, may be to help the Silvas get the money to develop and sustain Jan's talent with high-level instruction. Unfortunately for them,...

Re: Video of a 5-year-old tennis prodigy

What selective, myopic bullshit. Please stop trying to sound as if you are being scientific. This fools the uninitiated but not the rest of us.

You are the perfect stereotype of how stereotypes...

Re: Davydenko match probed for match fixing

I suspect the betting community has more interest in getting evidence than does the ATP or the tennis industry itself, which wants to see the story forgotten quickly. But the betting community...

You can see? You can SEE? What unscientific claptrap you are mouthing here. As if you can see a person's genetic makeup just by looking at him/her. Are you familiar with ANY of the processes of...

His father is from the Cape Verdes Islands. Have you ever seen people from there? Cape Verdes is like Brazil, one of the most mixed-up places in the world. You can't...

Thanks for squelching a rumor, Rumour! That was most helpful.

Re: Davydenko match probed for match fixing

Did I miss something? Where have the MTF threads that were linked to these URLs (and that I read just 3 or 4 days ago) disappeared to?

Were they pulled? If so, why? Does anybody know what...

Re: Mental Toughness: Focus, Determination, Resolve, Concentration

Perhaps a better example of "resolve" than the two you mention (Hewitt and Nalbandian) is in fact Rafael Nadal. How many times has Rafael come back from losing the first two sets to win the best...

Re: Tiger Woods, Roger Federer Nike commercial

I don't know where you're from, but Tiger speaks with just an ordinary upscale California accent.

And calling it a "summation of Roger Federer for tennis noobs" is kind of tautological. The point...

Re: Tsonga def. Lopez 6-3 7-6 6-3

I am getting tired of the racist comments on MTF. I think there should be a moderator policy to strike them.

Re: Who is gonna beat Rafa?

The phrase "I don't know about" is an idiom in English meaning "I don't think it's too relevant."

Re: Who is gonna beat Rafa?

I don't know about their relative form at the moment, but Berdych has a special animus that makes him play his best against Rafa. On the other hand, it uses up so much of his energy that, if he wins,...

Re: Basic MTF Tard Classification

Well, I'm a sykotique-tard. The wittiest thread I've seen in several years of lurking. It's so good, everyone else's level has been raised. Not that it could last past page 6, of course. But...

Re: Um, when is Nadal gonna learn how to use English?

Thanks for this link. I am so used to Rafa's English now that the main thing I noticed is how much more mature he is, how much more grown up than when he first came into the public eye.

It's...

Re: The Queens crowd is 98% WHITE EUROPEAN.

It's strange. I'd assumed the thread was started by a sensitive white Zimbabwean.

Even stranger, I thought people WERE wondering why black people don't come to tennis events.

One thing I'd...

Re: Um, when is Nadal gonna learn how to use English?

Rafa speaks English much better now. But he still has trouble understanding English questions addressed to him. This is partly because his questioners have so many different accents, and their...

Re: Why Does Rafael Eat Bananas?

I had a bet with myself on how many posts it would take for this thread to get hijacked. I said 8. I lost the bet. It took 10.

Re: Nadal on God and Religion

There's not enough info in this quote to decide whether it's a serious religious opinion, or the sound of someone balancing a PR tightrope.

Rafa's intelligence in handling his public image is far...

Re: pcitures of nadal sister anyone?

Maribel is not looking better than in the photo, she's just looking older. The photo posted above was taken about three years ago, when she was 13. She's grown up a lot since then.
