Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

Casablanca is already in the calendar, so there would be no need to add anything, just make it a little earlier. And I didnīt say souhtern European events should be in March, either. Early April,...

Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

Why add anything to Africa?? :confused:
I donīt know why you interpreted my post like I wanted more clay tournaments to Africa or clay season to start from Central-Europe? All I meant was...

Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

In this scenario Houstonīs value would diminish greatly, not that itīs great as it is. No top players would play a 250 between two TMSīs especially if they are on different surfaces. Making Miami a...

Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

I konw the structure has been unchanged for years now, it doesnīt mean it makes sense. Why does USA deserve so many big tournaments? There would still be a GS, a TMS (Cincinnati), several 250īs, a...

Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

Who said anything about 10 years?? I couldnīt care less who was winning it and when. But since everything at MTF is about who won what and when (during the last 10 years), I should have been more...

Re: Ivan Ljubicic says Djokovic and Murrray are boring

Thatīs a ridicilous description, even if Federer said it.

Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

The whole purpose of IW and Miami is non-existent nowadays. TOgether they consume almost a month, which is ridicilous. Theyīre not a conclusion of anything and not a build-up to anything. Half the...

Re: What happened to Jerzy Janowicz ?

I donīt see how Tiilikainen is to blame here. He took Janowicz as high as possible, did a great job getting those results at Paris and WImbledon. Janowicz has a limited potential, limited shot...

Re: Most badly behaved player of all time?

There is no need for you to act like I donīt know who Connors is. I know very well how he behaved, Iīve seen plenty of his matches, I know the whole story of his US Open 1991. What he did to...

Re: Most badly behaved player of all time?

This. COnnors and McEnroe acted horribly, but at least they fought like hell on court, no one more than Connors. Whether you loved it or hated it, they always gave a good show for the fans. Tanking...

Re: Andy Murray kills Inglot's relationship with his GF

I donīt know how someone can take that seriously, nothing but good-humoured banter there. Even if they hated each other (which they obviously do not), no one would do something like that to a...

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

While cigarettes are obviously hazardous to health, the effect is often exaggerated by people who have never smoked. I ran a marathon while smoking 1-1,5 packs a day and the first thing I did after...

Re: Did James Blake underachieve?

Definitely did not underachieve. WHen he had a good day ,he could hit the ball hard and produce some nice winners. But he never seemed to have much of a game plan, and he was very inconsistent. And...

Re: What makes a vulture?

Ridicilous that Ferrer is bashed again, for beating Harrison in the semifinals. I donīt understand how anyone can call his last couple of weeks vulturing. He won a 500 -tournament. Instead of playing...

Re: Sergiy Stakosvsky embarrassing pseudo intellectual Brad Gilbert on twitter

Re: Dubai QF: Coric def. [3] Murray 6-1 6-3

I thought the same thing, and if I remember correctly he suffered a bitter loss at the AO that time too. Not very professional, but not a first time for Murray, either. He will start caring after RG.

Re: Better backhand...peak Federer or peak Gasquet?

Return of serve is one of the most important (if not the most important) shots in tennis, so I donīt see how it could be excluded, if the topic is "better backhand".

Re: Better backhand...peak Federer or peak Gasquet?

Pretty much this. Gasquet can hit flashy winners fron way behind the baseline, but his occasional brilliance relies on the fact that he plays so far back. His large backswing requires a lot of time,...

Re: Buenos Aires R1: (WC) Olivo def Nieminen 7-6(3) 5-7 6-0

Not really. It was just a little bizarre scehduling, going from hard courts (Australia) to indoor (Montpellier) to clay (South-America). I donīt think he adjusted to conditions at all. Heīll bounce...

Re: Federer trashes Davis Cup: ''It's been a big burden and caused many difficulties'

It is pretty common practice in many other sports to not get paid representing your country. Hard to see that as a noble act.

Iīm not criticising him for not playing the DC. Like I said, he just...

Re: Time for Nadal and Toni to hire Sampras as coach.

There is nothing Sampras can teach Nadal. Their games, styles and how they see the game are so different. There is just no common ground. Nadal is a baseliner. Period. He does not have the technical...

Re: Federer trashes Davis Cup: ''It's been a big burden and caused many difficulties'

Pretty arrogant words from Federer. He could have just said something like "my priorities are different this year and I have a family so I wonīt be playing DC". It would have been as simple as that....

Re: Prime Ferrer ('07-'12) in the Transitional Era ('99-'03):What would he have achie

Ferrerīs consistency has a lot to do with all surfaces nowadays playing practically the same. 10-15 years ago he would have had to adapt his own game much more accordin to the surface. WIth so many...

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

Obviously Federer has always aimed to dominate using his forehand. Bu the fact that his forehand is so much better than his backhand doesnīt mean his backhand is not a great shot. I just donīt get...
