Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 21

Munar went from winning 12% of 2nd serves in 1st set to 85% in second!

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 21

Then Nadal could tank to give his friend points, the way this year is going for Nadal that wouldn't be much of a sacrifice

Re: Which players are likely to retire after this season?

Haha, very unlikely since he hasn't even peaked yet.

Re: Eubanks 6'7" and 165 pounds, skinniest player ever?!

Nice find, thanks! I hadn't seen him playing. I guess he's trying to copy Karlovic with the one-handed backhand :), if only his could one day reach the Karlovic level of smoothness and grace.

Eubanks 6'7" and 165 pounds [201 cm and 75 kg], skinniest player ever?!

He's a 19 year old local wildcard playing Stapenek in Atlanta 1st round right now. That is crazy skinny!

Lexington (CH) R1 Sweeting d. Carsten Ball 7-6, 6-2

First win by Sweeting in years I believe. Maybe he's coming back for real. Solid stats, won 91% of 1st serves and 70% of 2nd, save 3/3 break points. The draw looks pretty open for him to make a good...

Re: Bogota Slam F: Tomic def. Mannarino 6-1 3-6 6-2

Too funny that Bernie would pick up just his 3 title in, what is it 5 years, the week after being arrested for being drunk and disorderly. I guess he's figured out what pre tournament preparation...

Re: Bogotá QF: (1) Karlovic def. Stepanek 3-6 7-6 (7) 6-4

Craziest way I've seen, forget where it was--somewhere in the US, was to bring a helicopter onto court and let her spin.

Re: Bogotá QF: (1) Karlovic def. Stepanek 3-6 7-6 (7) 6-4

Stapenek lost 4 service point in the 2nd set, including the tiebreaker and still lost the set. That's got to be frustrating. Good to see Ivo come through in the clutch, he's starting to get on a...

Bogota quarters has 5 players over 30, 3 are 35+

This must be a record for oldest final 8:

36: Karlovic & Stepanek
35: Berrer
34: Estrella Burgos
31: Jaziri

the others are 27, 27, and 22.

May the oldest man win. Actually, may the second oldest...

Re: Will Rajeev "Rampras" Ram win Wimbledon in 2016?

Only thing that will stop him is if his ranking isn't high enough to get in. I have to be honest, I thought 2009 was a huge fluke but winning Newport again certainly proves it wasn't a fluke. On...

Re: Newport F: Rajeev Ram def. [2]Ivo Karlovic 7-6(5) 5-7 7-6(2)

Yeah, Ram played tough. Bogota next week looks like another excellent chance, probably even better, for Ivo to pick up his 2nd title of the year.

That's exactly what I was thinking second set and then lo and behold, Ivo stepped it up and broke.

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 21

Ivo's ace count is low, but other than that his serve stats look pretty typical.

Re: WWW ? Newport Final: [2] Karlovic vs Ram

If Ram wins a second title he should get a special exhibit in the Newport Hall of Fame.

Re: WWW ? Newport Final: [2] Karlovic vs Ram

Ram has done crazy well in Newport so I won't count him out, but Ivo is playing really well and consistently. He seems to love the low bounce and is breaking serve every match, which if you follow...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 21

That would be first time ever in his career that high at year end. If he beats Ram and wins this it vaults him up to #21, just behind Troiki.

What an opportunity for these guys, with the winner getting to play Rajeev Ram for the title.

Re: WWW Newport SF: Jack Sock vs Ivo Karlovic

I suspect that finger wasn't really broken, he kept playing doubles the day after he said he broke it.
