Re: WWW? ATP 1000 Miami Open (Draw Discussion)

Umm, didn't read the whole thread, but...

Did anyone comment on the fact eleven supposedly sane tennis fans have voted for Del Potro to take this title?

Fuck me.

Re: WWW ? Indian Wells Final: [1] Djokovic vs [2] Federer, XXXVIII

These guys are pretty close at the moment, which is amazing considering Federer's advanced years. But slow court here favours Djokovic, who will also come into the final fresher. He'll only need two...

Re: Kyrgios out of Miami

Ok. So Kyrgios's footwork is to blame for his injuries, and his lack of mixing his game up. Are you saying he tends to go for too much on his shots?

Re: Kyrgios out of Miami

How unlucky for the game that a youngster who finally showed the balls, mentality to win the big games, the power, the weapons to succeed is being struck down by a succession of injuries, hampering...

Re: WWW IW R4: Kokkinakis vs. [32] Tomic

It would be great to see Kokkinakis win this as the younger, more thrilling prospect of the two - I'd kind of given up on Tomic ever achieving his potential what with his questionable lifestyle...

Re: In which 1 year period did Nadal played his best tennis?

Nadal's form in 2013 NA HC swing was just incredible, especially his aggressive intent. He was really stepping in and those DTL forehands were awesome, unplayable. I don't have the stats but it would...

It's great to see some of these youngsters starting to win a few matches in the bigger tournaments. Some hope that the next two years won't be dominated only by a fading Nadal, Djokovic and...

Re: Nadal: I want to have more Grand Slams than Sampras

But, but, but...

The CGS difference can be explained also.

Rafa Nadal didn't have to contend with widely different surface playing conditions, therefore making this feat easier to achieve than it...

Re: Nadal: I want to have more Grand Slams than Sampras

Agree with the bolded statements particularly. It's a shame some of Nadal's great strengths are ignored or disregarded on this board - his ability to make those adjustments to his game to become a...

Re: Nadal: I want to have more Grand Slams than Sampras

Absolutely. But what's your point, that had Nadal won all the matches he won during Sampras' time he would have exceeded his weeks at number one? That we should add another category of stats for...

Re: Nadal: I want to have more Grand Slams than Sampras

I love it how you always try to use formulae and statistics as the overriding basis for any argument. Granted, this is developing into a specifically stats based discussion, which is clearly your...

Re: Ekaterina Bychkova : "David Ferrer smokes and he is not the only one"

Fair enough.

There you have a point, but other reports would seem to back up he's more than just having one at a party after a couple of beers, or post coital.

Thanks for posting the video. It's great to see that some still admire and honour the history of the game.

Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day is pretty big.

Re: All the players who are set to COMEBACK in Indian Wells.

This is excellent news. A lot of my hopes for the medium term future of tennis rest on this player being able to challenge the top guys.

Re: Who would you love to se in the finals of Wimbledon 2015?

I'm with you on this one. Although I'd like to see Federer play live before he retires.

AO Final 2009 was pretty hard to watch, and very frustrating. But yeah, not enough to make me vomit.

Re: Juan Martin del Potro accepts a WC into Indian Wells

Pretty much everyone here on MTF agrees it's likely too soon but hopes he's good and gets back to a decent level.

Pretty much everyone here on MTF agrees... Is this a first??

Re: New Masters on Grass at the cost of losing a 1 Masters on Clay?

Absolutely agree with this.

In an ideal world, there would be two-three grass, two-three clay, four HC (at least one indoor). Obviously that's never going to happen.

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

I imagine he won't lose too much sleep over that.

Great performance by Federer in the first set. His ground strokes were deep and hard, and he dug out some great volleys at his feet when...

Re: 2015 Live Commentary Thread vol. 6

How clutch was Federer's serve today? Still got it in best of three, even at 33.
