Re: Tennis and Federer Fans: Who will you root for while Roger is recuperating?

Mikhail Youzhny :D he seems to come back great this year and he loves Rotterdam, also likes Dubai (should play qualies there and Wroclaw in between) :)

Hoping for DelPo's comeback as well

Re: Official:Federer Level of Play Thread.Is Federer playing the best tennis of his l

Re: Federer is holding serve better than ever

actually looking at their stats, I've observed that Federer and Nadal share a common point which is a little bit strange : both of them had their best years (at leats the years from 2009) when their...

Re: Federer has a better chance today than he did at Wimbledon

Re: Federer is so much more offensive than Djokovic this tournament it's not even fun

it's more complicated than that : he also manages to put his opponents, and notably Federer, out of position with his baseline game, as he did in Wimbledon and so many times.

Re: Federer answers Boris Becker: "It’s not disrespectful. I'll use it in the finals"

The only way to understand such a decision of retiring after one wins a big tournament in my eyes is that one doesn't have fun in tennis anymore. It seems to have been Bartoli's case, I don't know...

Re: USO Final's weather conditions - Who will they favour?

Re: Djokovic aiming at ATP ranking point record
