Re: Rome 2015. Let's get back on track

It looks as though Rome & Monte Carlo will elude him for ever. Shame. Still, some of us had become resigned to Roger's now being a non-factor on clay, and a Massters final, & his play against...

Re: Madrid Final: Murray def Nadal 6-3 6-2

Last time I checked, Nishikori & Murray were different people.

Re: Madrid Final: Murray def Nadal 6-3 6-2

A result, and a match, that was inconceivable even a year ago. The deterioration in Nadal's confidence & more importantly, his game, is marked. His backhand is a non-factor and his forehand an...

Re: Madrid QF: [4] Nishikori def. [7] Ferrer 6-4 6-2

I've seen a few of Nishikori's matches recently and I think I've been watching a future World No. 1.

Re: Nadal:"It's a disaster. My game was mundane"

This is about the most dispirited I can remember Nadal sounding after a loss.

Good times.

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

Stan was at his flamboyant best here & Kei just couldn't contain him.

Re: AO 2015 QF: (1) N. Djokovic def. (8) M. Raonic 7-6(5) 6-4 6-2

Raonic looked weaponless against Djoker on this court.

Re: Where does Nadal go from here?

Well, he seems to have reached a stage, as Federer did some years ago, where convincing performances against lesser players are an unreliable guide to performance against better players. He's in...

Re: You guns schooled once again in AO QF

Disappointing every QF ended in straight sets.

Re: ~*~*~*~ Australian Open 2015 Thread - Italian Job #2 vs Seppi 3R ~*~*~*~

Judging by the comments, I'm kind of glad I didn't have a chance to watch the Seppi match. I hope Roger can rediscover the knack of peaking for the slams this season. Peaking for Brisbane is all...

Re: Davis Cup Final: Federer def. Gasquet 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 [SUI 3 - FRA 1]

Great performance, magnificent achievement. A crowning moment in Fed's career. And Wawrinka's, of course. Great to see Roger still able to rise to the occasion like that. Why, though, the French...

Re: Rod Laver's 10 best past and present players

"Best" might be the operative word here. Not the same as "greatest".

Re: USO SF: Cilic def. Federer: 6-3 6-4 6-4

Peak Fed was obviously a far better player than Cilic but he'd hardly have been breaking at will. Cilic was hitting the corners with those 125-130 mph serves. He was also reading Roger's serve like...

Re: US Open 2014 cheering thread - too bad it wasn't meant to be Roger

Cilic was hitting the corners with his serve, reading Roger's serve like a book, & smacking huge groundstrokes to within inches of the line, scarcely making an error, particularly off Roger's sliced...

Re: DId Federer just miss his best chance at Slam #18?

Don't know & it doesn't matter. If he plays better he could win a slam in less favourable circumstances. The field is clearly deepening so although there are more players who can beat Fed, there...

Re: US Open 14 SF: (10) Nishikori def. (1) Djokovic 6-4 1-6 7-6(4) 6-3

Great effort from Nishikori in this slam. He deserves the title - although so does Cilic after his stunning demolition of Fed yesterday.

Not sure what was wrong with Nole: he looked like his...

Re: USO SF: Cilic def. Federer: 6-3 6-4 6-4

Maybe the Federer of 2006 could have edged Cilic out, but that was an awesome display of serving, returning, & power hitting he faced yesterday. A real shame he couldn't make the final with no other...

Re: USO QF: Federer def. Monfils 4-6 3-6 6-4 7-5 6-2, saves 2 MPs

I can't be bothered to read the whole thread, but has anybody observed how encouraging a performance this was by Monfils? Much worse than the "clowning" tendencies harped on by MTF, he has been for...

Hopeful signs in terms of Federer's movement & passing shots.
