Re: Stuttgart R1: [WC] Del Potro def. Dimitrov 6-4 6-2

Dimitrov should play some challengers and get some wins asap.

Re: What type of player gets tournament appearance fees?

I don't understand how the sport is sustainable with that kind of practice. Zverev is dumb as a rock if he's wanting to abuse the system at his age.

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 10

He hasn't earned a lot on the tour yet. But if he just stays around top 20 he'll bring home $1M after expense a year.
He'll play.

Re: I have a feeling RG 2016 will be like Wimbledon 2012

It'll be hard for Djokovic to win a lot more slams if he gains a year every month. The guy just turned 29.

Re: Ernests Gulbis slams tennis hierarchy for treatment of low-ranked.

At least respect the player for voicing his opinion in an interview in an articulate and non contentious manner.
"Life isn't fair. Deal with it" doesn't make him any more wrong.

Re: RG R1: Almagro d. [24] Kohlschreiber 5-7 6-2 6-2 6-4

I was there, this was an entertaining match.
Almagro went crazy (really crazy!) against Bernades because of a warning for obscenity at (I think) 1*-2 in the second set and started goating on serve...

Re: WWW 2016 Roland Garros [May 16 - Jun 5] and Discussion (Main Draw in Post #1)

Could someone discuss the thread without ressorting to attacks with other fans? Is it too much to ask in a tennis forum? Are there any mods in there?

Anyway, Nadal will surely provide some of the...

Re: The Meteoric Rise of Taylor Fritz......

Taylor Fritz will most likely lose in the first or second round. But it's no big deal, he'll win a lot in the future.

Re: Djokovic believes that he can do The Grand Slam (CYGS) this year

It's meaningless to count the amateur era when comparing records. Even then, the Australian Open wasn't a slam in the modern meaning until the late 80s.

Re: Weeks in Top 5, Top 10, etc

Thanks, I didn't notice. So that means that Nishikori spent 90 weeks in the top 10.

Re: Weeks in Top 5, Top 10, etc

Could you do the same but for active players. I'd like to know where Raonic, Nishikori, Monfils, Berdych... stand in these stats.

Re: #NextGen? They're probably not next

They'll get there eventually because by 2020, 33yo Djokovic and Murray won't be winning all slams.
So either a 30yo Nishikori and 28yo Raonic dominate the tour or the next generation will get some...

Re: Which country is the most fan of tennis and the one where tennis is more importan

It's France and it should be no contest. If you remove every top players, tennis would be dead in their country but not in France where it was still popular when there was noone in the top 20.

Re: Is Berdych the least popular top 10 player of last twenty years?

He's maybe the least popular player right now with over 200 weeks in the top 10. Even Ferrer is a more polarizing figure.
Once Raonic loses his young gun status, he'll be able to challenge for that...

Re: Is Thiem is most overhyped and Goffin is the most underestimated player on MTF?

It's more about the style of play. Thiem has the kind of game people see winning slams, solid, powerful and agressive from both wings with no apparent weakness. That's why he's somehow rated higher...

2016kori simply giving up at the worst moment only to be saved by the return of 2014kori. What an end to that match!

Let's wait until the match is over, shall we? Every players can play average during 1 set.

Re: Who will finish 2016 #2?

My odds:

Murray 45%
He's in his prime, he's done it before and he's protected as a #2 seed...

Federer 20%
He can actually beat anyone but is his body still willing? Also he's already missed 2...

Re: Miami R3: [26] Dimitrov def. [2] Murray 6-7(1) 6-4 6-3

Re: If Thiem beats Djokovic tomorrow...

We're clearly in the Djokovic era. But we're starting to see some change behind him which is nice.
