Re: Are there just more injuries now than ever ?

Ok, well, we'll see tomorrow. He didn't look too comfortable when the trainer checked out his hip/thigh yesterday.

Either way, he's one other guy who's also coming back from injury.

Re: Are there just more injuries now than ever ?

Ok, I think I know which injuries you're talking about from Wimbledon '13.

That was when Isner and a couple of other injured players opened up the draw for Janowicz, right?

That was also the...

Re: Are there just more injuries now than ever ?

If I recall the top 10 during Wimbledon '13, I think they were mostly healthy.

Now, it's like half are either full-on or halfway injured.

Question Are there just more injuries now than ever ?

Federer, Nadal, Tsonga, Raonic ... everyone seems to be injured or coming back from injury, for some reason.

Except for Berdych, who seems to never be injured, despite the current state of his...

Re: John McEnroe added to Raonic's coaching staff

Whoa, this is a surprise . . .

Milos usually prefers soft-spoken guys in his corner. Riccardo Piatti said a coach for him has to have a "gentle" temperament (Blanco, Ljubicic, Moya... all mostly...

I'm the same, and certainly not for animal rights reasons.

In fact, I think hunting is a great activity... much better than mass-produced livestock and animal farms.

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 10

It's so nice to have a fit umpire working on clay (in Monaco-Ferrer).

Not just for the cute factor, but she doesn't take long to get down, check out the mark, and get back up in the chair either.

Re: Ernests Gulbis slams tennis hierarchy for treatment of low-ranked.

If I remember correctly, he was in a worse slump before his resurgence into the top 10 in 2014 (had to crawl his way back from having to qualify into challengers).

He mentioned in interviews how...

Re: Ernests Gulbis slams tennis hierarchy for treatment of low-ranked.

Bouchard was out on court 16 and said her coach + team didn't have a place to sit either. Friends she invited to watch her play ended up being stuck outside.

It will take a long time, and probably...

Re: RG R1: (8) Raonic def. Tipsarevic 6-3 6-2 7-6(5)

Jeez, Tipsy understandably lacked consistency but the intensity & backhand were all there.

He should be back in top 30 soon.

Re: Biggest Overachievers

Hah. never gets old.

I just read a recent interview w/ Toni Nadal that reiterated the same point.

The Spanish have such a thing against him, and yet, he loves hiring them as coaches. :lol:

Re: Biggest Overachievers

I'm a big fan, but I'll say Raonic.

Wasn't good in juniors, no one saw him as a future prospect, obvious limitations in terms of movement and variety.

When he was top 300, hardly anyone thought...

Re: Why is Thiem playing so many tournaments?

Ok, cool. I'm just concerned cause he seems like such a good-natured kid (probably the nicest on tour).

There's some sleazy people out there who live to take advantage of that.

Re: Why is Thiem playing so many tournaments?

As Slasher pointed out, his 10 points from Madrid just eliminated 150 non-mandatory points... so, at this point, he's just beating a dead horse (or subsidizing a really high-maintenance coach or...

Question Why is Thiem playing so many tournaments?

I see now he's on the list for Nice, right before the French... after playing on just about every clay court in South America and Europe.

Didn't he play every week before the clay court season, as...

Re: Madrid R3: Raonic def. Tsonga 6-4 6-4

Madrid's elevation tends to make everyone's serve look better.

Hopefully that's not the case and Milos is actually more fully fit.
