Re: Super Monday : Schedule of Play !!

Apart from Fed derby, the centre court schedule is rubbish. Second court got the best female matches..
And Grave-of-the-champions won't really live up to its name.

Re: Predict Nadal Wimbledon Campaign

Question though remains, will Wawrinka's final make him leapfrog Nadal for W #4 seeding?

Re: Predict Nadal Wimbledon Campaign

Each time he was this convincing at RG, he also did very well at W. And I like the serve.

Re: Nadal questions Wimbledon Seeding

Not necessarily. Grass of the first week is not the same as grass of the second week. Leave alone a grass of the last weekend.
That's one reason Nadal was losing lately early - his game is not well...

Re: Nadal questions Wimbledon Seeding

Not much to worry about. If Nadal wins RG he is #2 and will not be dropped below #4 at Wimbledon seeding. Being seeded #4 next to Federer seeded #3 is the best possible seeding spot he could possibly...

Re: Will Nadal go 5 out of 5 this clay season?

Nadal is already leading the race by a growing margin. And the scary thing, point-wise we are not even half-way through clay season, and his only Race competition is missing it.
If Nadal completes...

Re: ATP Miami Open Final: [4] R. Federer def. [5] R. Nadal 6-3 6-4

The biggest mystery of this match - what happened to Nadal's forehand. He was either missing it by miles, or - from comfortable positions - hit it so soft that Roger would even run around it time...

Re: Court Speed Index (CPI) of Miami

Between Nadal and Federer. Nadal has always outplayed Federer in Miami. He never outplayed uninjured Federer in IW. The only time Rafa beat Roger in IW was when Fed had a back injury. Every other...

Re: Did the extra day's rest help Federer?

Absolutely. On its own extra day is not crucial, unless aggravated by a player having less time to rest also having much tougher semifinal. Which was the case.
I do think that on this level (...

Re: [Serious] Has Federer's Backhand Improved in 2017?

The jury is still out I think on this.
I'd like to see how it holds on a more conventional surface. This fast surface with lower balance suddenly made many things look different. For one, I've never...

Re: WWW 2017 Australian Open Final : [XXXV] [9] Nadal vs [17] Federer

I compared two semis, and I don't see a single department where Fed currently is better than Grisha. ESpecially backhand.
Nadal lost faith in his forehand spinners to Grisha's backhand very quick....

Re: Grigor Dimitrov's Istanbul 2016 Final meltdown....

And the last one lasted 5 points. 5 points! I've never seen anything like that. No bad string brand can explain that. This is indeed ridiculous. And legendary.

Re: I was wrong about Nadal. He is far from over.

As a softcore Nadal fan, I'd say this win is a good thing, but it is in no way a reason for any kind of conclusion in terms of looks on his career going forward.

He had quite a few stretches in...

Re: 61.1% of Dutch voters reject EU association agreement with Ukraine in referendum

Ukraine should try African Union instead. That would be socially and civilization-wise closer to what they currently are.

Re: Euro 2016

As I am sure we all understand, the team that is likely to make the biggest impact at this tournament is a national team representing Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

I would not say they failed. Cuba lived through half a century of misery instead of living that time in prosperity. I don't give a flying hryuck about human rights and stuff, but you can't make an...
