Re: Which performance against Nadal in Wimbly did you enjoy more?

Only Rosol really because that was when Nadal was actually still a pretty good player and Lukas played amazing. By next year, I think Andujar will even be able to beat him.

Re: Big servers LOVE Wimbledon?

The problem is that guys like Isner and Karlovic are going to win about 90% of their service games on whatever surface they play on. Then, because grass enhances the serve of the other player, plus...

Re: P-H Herbert won 23!!! points in a row on serve in FQ match on Wimbledon

More impressive was when Karlovic won 26/27 service points in a set and still lost the set! He had I believe 25 straight at one point and lost serve around 4-4 in the TB

Re: Former #117 Martin Fischer retires from Tennis

Always had a cool 2 handed BH drop shot that I liked...decent Challenger level player, but just couldn't make the jump to the tour level. Good luck to him in his future.

Two problems that servebots usually face is that they are tall and have weaker movement. Grass don't help this much because of the low bouncing and the fact that they have less time to prepare their...

Re: Which type of 'foul play' is more prevalent in today's professional tennis?

Not true, I identified a glitch in one of the major betting systems at 2 ITF tournaments and made upwards of 20k in a week before they caught on and when they did, they still didn't know what...

Re: Which type of 'foul play' is more prevalent in today's professional tennis?

Another issue with doping is that it really only helps you in certain situations. Maybe HGH or roids will help you for a bit during the offseason, but they aren't something that really provide an...

Re: Which type of 'foul play' is more prevalent in today's professional tennis?

Match fixing is probably the most done, just because of the lower levels. I really don't see why guys ranked like 500+ and are over 25 (never going to actually make it) wouldn't do it. You can win a...

Re: Who has the best forehand in the game right now ?

Some options are Djokovic, Wawrinka, Raonic, maybe even Sock.

I think Djokovic's still the best even though it may not be as overpowering as the others when they are really on. But his is very...

Re: Who will be the next multi-Slam winner?

I hate to say it, but I think Raonic has a good chance if he continues the progress he made this year. Really improved his movement, BH and net game, so I could see him grabbing a Wimby or two offer...

Re: WWW? - Roland Garros Final: Novak Djokovic vs Stan Wawrinka

Re: Furth CH R1 Lapentti d. Brands 6-3 6-3

Sad to say, but I think Brands is almost on the list of "Careers that Mono Killed". Keep waiting for him to regain his top form but he's nowhere close in the past two years.

Re: Tsonga chosen for Chatrier instead of 18 Slams

In round 2 they also put the 17 slam matchup between Federer and Granollers on Lenglen while Monfils/Schwartzman was on Chatrier, Idiots! And they even had the nerve to put the 16 Slam matchup of the...

Re: Stefan Merunka - The real definition of a jorneyman

By my quick calculations (not going through all tourneys but assuming the futures to be 10k), he made $1612.25 USD last year, which is maybe enough to cover one of his flights to Africa.
