Re: Prepare for James to flake tonight

This is not the same Blake as before. He now knows he can win a five setter and come back from two sets down. It will not be the usual scenario of giving up when trailing. In fact, it may well turn...

Re: AO R1: Nadal def Troicki 7-6 7-5 6-1

2 and a half hours for the World #2 to put away a qualifier.....geez. Still, easy route to the semis now....

Re: Only 3 players that have reached #1 in the ATP rankings have a losing rec. in fin

And see the quote above on Muster and Kuerten. You could say the same about Nadal.

Nadal has 23 titles, of which 18 were won on clay, 4 on hard, 1 indoor. He's reached 6 other Finals (2 hard, 1...

Re: Article : Nalbandian, Coria and others speak about the other side of tennis

Thanks for posting the article. As usual, Nalbandian appears hardly bothered to answer. Chela was the one who surprised me the most but then he's often been under estimated on court.

Re: Hewitt working his ass off

Like for most players, it will all depend on the draw. If he gets past the first 2 rounds, he could then face one of Seeds 9-16 Nalbandian, Robredo, Murray, Haas, Blake, Berdych, Baghdatis,...

Re: Player's games dissected - Fedex, Haas, Safin

As best of five sets is now being restricted to the GS (ignore TMC/DC) I took a look at how many 5 setters Federer and Sampras have had since starting on the tour up to and including 2007 and...

Re: Player's games dissected - Fedex, Haas, Safin

I have never understood "over-achieved". You achieve, or you don't. It's like under-achieve. Both categories are set against someone else's arbitrary standards.

Same with "choke". Same with...

Re: Bryans d. Andreev/Davydenko 7-6(4) 6-4 6-2, USA wins DC 2007!

Relevant to what? Certainly not to the ATP tour's 60 odd tournaments for individual players throughout the year. It's an anomaly, a team game in an individual sport, made up of two singles players...

Re: Bryans d. Andreev/Davydenko 7-6(4) 6-4 6-2, USA wins DC 2007!

All true, but it makes you wonder why it took them so long when, as far as I am aware, much, if not more, of the above applied last year, the year before.....Waiting for the "right" court, I suppose...

Re: Rafa at The Masters Cup

Re: Shanghai Final: Federer def Ferrer 62 63 62

All this talk about Nalbandian....fact is, this guy is not in the world's top 8 and didn't make it to Shanghai. He isn't even part of the equation. Put up the numbers during 2008, show up at TMC or...

Re: Nalbandian hands out donut vs Nadal: 6-4 6-0

The ATP race is a year long, and because Nalbandian did sweet FA before Madrid, he passed the finishing line in 9th place i.e. runner up. If he gets in, it will be by default, not because he deserved...

Re: Where is Roddick's career heading?

If he is really going to put all eggs in one basket (DC) and pull out of TMC, he will be considerably short of match practice for 2x best of 5 sets. He played DC September 23rd, nothing for 4 weeks,...

Re: QF: Gasquet def Murray 6-3 0-6 6-4

The OOP isn't out yet, but Nadal v Baghdatis is likely first up, so Gasquet will know before going on court if he's locked up the 8th spot. And if he has, he might just play more freely (or not try...

Re: Federer and Nadal asked for a change in the Paris-Bercy surface

What a storm in a tea cup. I don't believe any of the spin and pointing the finger at the top 2.

As pointed out, Nadal has never played there, and Federer was injured in 2004 and 2005, and 2006 had...

Re: Verdasco beats overrated Cilic 6-2 6-3

You only have to look at Djokovic's achievements between Jan '07 and now to see what can happen in a few months.

Re: Cilic def. Davydenko 1-6 7-5 6-1, Davydenko fined for lack of best effort

May be I have misunderstood. :confused: I take a "warning" to be just that, as something that precedes a definitive code violation for which a player is fined. It appears then that the...

Re: Cilic def. Davydenko 1-6 7-5 6-1, Davydenko fined for lack of best effort

Apologies for the long post, but the more I look at this, the more it appears that Davydenko has been unfairly treated. According to the ATP Rule Book:

h) Best efforts
i) A player shall use his...
