Re: Aljaz Bedene to switch allegiances to Great Britain

Britain would need to schedule Davis Cup ties in Chennai to get full benefit of Bedene.

Re: Say something nice about the player you hate the most.

Bernie Tomic seems to have a lot of friends.

Re: Fairest GS crowd?

The MTF Hive Mind is finally in agreement on something it seems. AO the fairest.

Re: Tommy Haas comeback preparation video

It's true that Tommy has plenty of physical wear and tear on his body from all the injuries and surgeries. Still, he did seem a little less jaded than some old veterans in his last comeback. Maybe...

Re: Murray vs Sampras on clay

Sampras wins in faster conditions on clay -- hot temperatures as in Roma. They split results on clay in other conditions, with Murray getting the edge as things get slower.

Re: One Serve Rule - How Many Slams Does Murray End Up With?

Murray would have to use his second serve all the time to avoid DFs, so no increase to slam count.

Re: Nalbandian was technically better player than Agassi

Interesting point. Nalbandian did a lot of things well -- maybe too many. Agassi just wanted to boss his opponent around the court w groundstrokes. I have to think Agassi's forehand was a more...

Re: Tommy Haas comeback preparation video

Love the racket throw! Five stars *****.

Really important to work on all phases of the game in practice. I imagine Tommy is getting in some quality talking-to-himself as well. "Hasi, why did you...

Re: Where would you rank these PEAK one handed backhands of the past 30yrs?

Calleri is a good call. Very powerful OHB -- reminds of Wawrinka.

Re: Where would you rank these PEAK one handed backhands of the past 30yrs?

01. Wawrinka (best on offense, therefore #1 in my ranking)
02. Kuerten (best all-around)
03. Haas
04. Edberg
05. Federer
06. Gasquet (on pure style and ability to hit astounding shots every now...

Re: Michael Stich: "Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer are too perfect"

Please, no need for more "personalities" - we have enough sideshows already.

Re: Best active player to have never won...

Minor point, but based on current form Wawrinka could be #3 for WTF. DelPo with the better prior record at WTF though.

Re: Did Sampras retire too early?

To me the situations seem more comparable, although the ranking point is an issue. While Pete wasn't winning a lot of titles in his last stretch, he only failed to win a Slam in 2001 -- he won...

Re: Did Sampras retire too early?

Sampras retired at the right time. His last year or so was difficult -- George Bastl at Wimbledon for example. . .

Mentally, while Sampras had a killer instinct that approached Nadal's, I don't...

Re: Most annoying service motion of all time

Granollers pause, Volandri, Kohli toss, Delbonis double toss, Rafa but only the face grimace part.

Becker and Raonic are fine by me

Re: Why did Sampras give up on clay?

The debate of whether Agassi or Pete was more loved in the US has been discussed many times. My take -- in the pop culture/celebrity context: Agassi no doubt. Among tennis fans: Sampras,...

Re: BETTER WEAPON ? Delpos Forehand vs Stans Backhand

When he's zeroed in, Stan can change directions and go down the line so easily with his BH. So he doesn't have to hit through people, he hits it past them. His BH may not have the firepower of the...

Re: ESPN hires Jason Goodall as temporary replacement of Johnny-Mac?

Jason Goodall is an upgrade. Johnny Mac is great for occasional comments on specific issues, but he's not really suited to calling a full match at this point.

Re: How man slams would Sampras have won in this era?

Sampras would have fewer slams in this era, no doubt. BUT Sampras was not a servebot -- he won a lot of points from the baseline, either outright winners or setting up an easy volley. Watch the...

Re: AO QF: Wawrinka def. Nishikori 6-3 6-4 7-6(6)

Stan looking very strong. Why do opponents continue to hit to his BH??? FH is good too, but I see no reason to hit to Stan's BH. Once you take him the slightest bit wide on the BH side he will...
