Re: WWW? 2015 Wimbledon SF: [2] Federer vs [3] Murray

You can cite factors in both of their favour. Murray has had a better year than Federer, but Federer has probably looked better in the tournament so far. Their recent matches were dominated by...

Re: WWW Wimbledon QF: [12]Gilles Simon vs [2]Roger Federer

Simon tends to get written off by a lot of people simply because of his style of play (and his somewhat meek persona) but whenever he's been in good form he's usually given Federer a tough match. I...

Re: Dustin Brown: Is that a ball in your pocket, or...

If he was doing this you'd expect him to be using that ball on a first serve, but he was using them on second serves. I was there and made a point of following it on a couple of occasions. In one...

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

Rosol produced some amazing tennis in that match, but I prefer Brown for entertainment value. Some of the shots he produced yesterday (good and bad) were pretty ridiculous and as a personality he's...

Re: Will Murray ever beat Djokovic again?

He can beat him, but it's pretty clear he has a big problem when they get to the 2-3 hours mark of a tight match. If he isn't already in command at that point he's likely to get ground down...

Re: Miami SF: (3) Murray def. (8) Berdych 6-4 6-4

Most of the people who go overboard about the Premier League are people working for Sky or BT Sport - companies that have paid huge amounts of money to show it and who are obviously going to promote...

Re: Murray would of won more slams...

That was his problem about 5+ years ago, but it's not his problem now. You don't suddenly lose a set 6-0 because you're too defensive. Djokovic wasn't blazing winners past him either. He lost that...

Re: Commonwealth of Australia F: Djokovic def. Andrew Barron Murray 7-6(5) 6-7(4) 6-3

I think the pattern for these matches is pretty clear as this was very similar to the 2013 final. They played two tight (and long) sets then mid-way through the third it started to go wrong for...

Re: End the madness now - Who's career would you rather take? Hewitt vs Murray, VOTE

I don't think at any stage in his career I've thought Murray was genuinely the best player in the sport at that exact moment (although it's been close at times), whereas I certainly thought that...

Re: Murray to get the career slam before Djokovic?

He can make semi-finals at RG by having a good seeding and a bit of luck. To actually win it would take some kind of bizarre lightning in a bottle effort - the 5+ players who are better than him on...

Re: Can Stan Come Back To Top 4?

It's hard to predict what he's going to do for the rest of this year. From Monte Carlo onwards last year he was pretty mediocre at best, yet at the Tour Finals and in Australia he's had some pretty...

Re: Would you watch a Nole vs Murray final?

Yes because I like tennis and I try not to be an attention seeking moron who says controversial things for no particular reason.

Re: Is Wawa vs Djokovic the best matchup in Tennis right now?

It depends on Wawrinka. If he's at the top of his game then perhaps, but his form has actually been pretty mediocre since Monte Carlo last year. A few good matches like crushing Berdych at the Tour...

Re: Just to what extent Murray is "done" ?

Overall his year wasn't bad by other players' standards, but it was basically Murray transitioning from being a top four player who has a legitimate shot of winning 3/4 slams to someone who can get...

Re: Which AO final 2015 do want to see?

Murray - Wawrinka because I like unpredictable finals and I feel like both of them could argue to be favourites (Wawrinka the defending champion, Murray having had a better career). It would also...

Re: AO QF: Murray def. Kyrgios 6-3 7-6 (5) 6-3

Kyrgios has a lot of talent, but he's still a bit immature in terms of things like shot selection. You get away with that when you're much more talented than the player you're up against, but if you...

Re: Nadal on Kyrgios: "He'll be in the top positions" "He's playing w/no pressure"

I'm not a Nadal fan, but I thought those were relatively interesting comments. Actually seemed like he was trying to provide some insight instead of the usual non-committal rubbish tennis players...

Re: AusOpen RND 4: Andy Murray Def Girgor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-7, 6-3, 7-5

I watched both of those matches and couldn't disagree more. The quality of the defensive play of Seppi/Kyrgios in particular was miles lower than in the Dimitrov/Murray match.

If you want to put...

Re: Murray opens up about team split - hints Dani/Jez against Mauresmo role

The way Murray acts - ultra-competitive, completely ruthless in getting rid of people he doesn't think help him, etc. - I just find it a bit ridiculous to think he hired Mauresmo for the PR.

Re: WTF Final (1)Djokovic d (2)Federer w/o

Disappointing. Both players were playing well and it could have been a great end to the year. Doesn't make the sport look very good overall when this happens, but what can you do.

Re: Dimitrov won't go to the World Tour Finals as an Alt

The money shouldn't be the issue. The alternates aren't there to do him a favour, but because people have paid good money to go watch these matches and a couple of injuries could potentially ruin the...

Not at his peak level, but he deserves some credit. He's been written off by some people on several occasions now yet he's still performing at an elite level at 33. Says something about his attitude...
