Re: Newly Top 10 Thiem should reconsider skipping Rio Olympics

Meanwhile you're keeping your tradition to present stats about Olympics in misleading way.

For example all top 10 played in 2012, apart from Nadal who was injured and certainly wanted to play.

Re: Rome Final: [3] Andy "Clayray" Murray def. [1] Novak Djokovic 6-3 6-3

And Djokovic wants the rain play to be stopped because of safety reasons when he's losing but has no problem playing on much worse conditions when he's winning (2012 RG F).

Clearly the guy has no...

Re: Is RG 2016 Nadal's last chance to clinch "La Décima"?

But Djokovic will eventually decline as well (may have already started).

Re: Amelie Mauresmo is no longer Andy Murray's coach

She shouldn't have taken the job then. It's not like she got pregnant by accident.

Re: Amelie Mauresmo is no longer Andy Murray's coach

Mauresmo was pregnant and being a mother almost entire coaching arrangement.

And it's not like she would have a child by accident either. So basically she took the coaching job knowing full well...

Re: Murray is too one dimensional

How many of those 7 chances did Murray take?

It seemed to me that Andy was hitting winners at will when gaining his BP opportunities in final game - and then did very little on actual PBs.

Re: RG Odds: Nole- 1.8, Rafa- 4.8, Murray- 10.5

Yes, Djokovic is certainly overvalued.

Here are Nadal's RG historical odds:

Year odds Title win odds
2015 5,8 17 %
2014 2,75 36 %
2013 1,78 56 %
2012 1,83 55 %
2011 1,83 55 %

Re: Murray is too one dimensional

I don't think Andy's game really was the problem in Madrid... he was the man in form.

Murray's problem was mainly break point conversion (2/10). Meanwhile Djokovic converted 4/6. Djoko is better...

Re: Madrid QF: [5] Rafael Nadal def. Joao Sousa 6-0 4-6 6-3

No, Rafa just lost concentration and confidence. He's not a finished product yet. True though that Madrid is far from his favourite clay court.

And... Sam Querrey should be ashamed of himself!

Re: Barcelona 2016 Final : [1] Nadal def. [2] Nishikori 6-4 7-5

You must have watched a different match. It was pretty damn close to vintage Rafa. Even Nishi would probably have beaten Novak today.

Re: Barcelona 2016 Final : [1] Nadal def. [2] Nishikori 6-4 7-5

Yes, no one has ever done even 8-8-8.

These are GOAT worthy records.

Re: Barcelona QF: Nadal def. Fognini 6-2 7-6(1)

As I already said, Rafa was feeling the nerves at MC final - because it was the final. The match in IW was semifinal. IW is also very good surface for Rafa, more so than for Djoko.

Re: Barcelona QF: Nadal def. Fognini 6-2 7-6(1)

No, Rafa would probably have been slaughtered in the final. He played pretty nervy against Monfils even.

Rafa has certainly gotten back some of his mojo, can perform well on crucial moments... but...

Re: Monte Carlo R3: (5) Nadal def. (12) Thiem 7-5 6-3

Yes (although neither of them actually moonballed).

Thiem got all the time out of the trouble with using topspin shots and this bought him more time. If he had played flatter shots instead, then...

Re: I think it's time for people to admit the reason they don't think Novak Djokovic.

In general big servers go deeper on faster conditions.


Right...


Links?
Hawkeye data is not available. And I'm pretty damn sure it will correlate highly with ace stats.

But we digress.

Re: IW QF:[4] R.Nadal def. [5] K.Nishikori 6-4 6-3

Have I said that?

Actually I was one of the few posters here who said that Betfair was wrong and Nadal should be the favourite against Nishi. I also bet some hard earned vcash on it!

Re: I think it's time for people to admit the reason they don't think Novak Djokovic.

Well I don't. That's what the poll showed me... you can't take surface speed opinions seriously here.

Are you telling us that your eyesight is more reliable than other posters here? Maybe it is,...

Re: I think it's time for people to admit the reason they don't think Novak Djokovic.

That's not very reliable method though.

I think couple years ago on MTF; there was a poll whether AO was faster or slower than previous years... the result of the poll was 50-50 and looked like a...

Re: I think it's time for people to admit the reason they don't think Novak Djokovic.

There is no other meaningful and unbiased way to differentiate between HC speed than outdoor-indoor. Djokovic has been night impossible to beat on indoors the recent years, the fastest category of...
