Re: RG or USO - which one is more important?

Rafa carries himself well to a point, but its high time he stopped picking his backside all the time because it looks gross.

Re: Andy Murray - What is his gameplan in major semis and finals?

I'm not a Murray fan :p

Re: 1995 Pete Sampras vs. 2011 Novak Djokovic: Who Would Win?

His serve relied a lot on power. Speed gun has nothing to do with it, his serve had more spin than his opponents, his speed and spin made the serve a very powerful weapon. By tossing the ball just...

Re: 1994 WIMBLEDON ("FAST GRASS") vs. 2011 WIMBLEDON ("SLOW GRASS"): INTERESTING RESU

It can be put into two categories. The early 1990s and late 1990s. By the late 1990s the grass on centre court was considered harder and higher bouncing, aiding rallying and kick serves. Pat Cash...

Re: Which court do you expect to see Federer v Youzhny on Monday?

I agree, Court 2 would actually be most appropriate as Federer will win easily. It would a great opportunity for fans on Court 2 to see a player like Federer.
