Re: Turkey shot down Russian jet near Syrian border, Putin calls 'stab in the back'

Things are getting more and more exciting. It might be the beginning of the end of the war in Syria, clearly light at the end of the tunnel.
And we might be close to witnessing Kurds getting a major...

Strange. As I see totally opposite. Growth above 0 all years but two since 1999. Growth below 0 , meaning a contraction, every year but 1 before 1999. Do you see something different? Weird.

The era of Yeltsin and liberal management didn't end in 2000. It ended 2 years earlier. When Russia defaulted on its debt in 1998. Which drew the line under the liberal demolition of Russian economy....

Re: Is their a chance Nole will win as much or surpass Federer in GS count?

Just to put this in prospective. Is it only me who felt that today Djokovic barely broke a sweat? He played in a mode he normally plays first week. As if knowing that he can do it at half intensity...

Re: Is their a chance Nole will win as much or surpass Federer in GS count?

That's exactly a fucking point. Behind Djokovic there is a generation zero of Raonic, Dimitrov, Nishikori, who are age-wise already much closer to Djokovic than to being young hopes. And behind them...

Re: Is their a chance Nole will win as much or surpass Federer in GS count?

Murray is not a factor. Everyone knows, he can put up a couple of tight sets against Djokovic, but he won't last a lengthy best of five against him.
Fed is not going to be a factor outside of...

It's not just a point of Djokovic being particularly awesome ( which he is ), it's about total absence of any competition on the horizon, and with any existing resemblance of competition aging ahead...

It's funny to read from people who never lived in Russia of 90s how great it was.

Re: Manila CH F: [2] Mikhail Youzhny def. Marco Chiudinelli 6-4 6-4

His objective is Olympic cut, which is like Top 56 by beginning of June or something like that. Given that he has very few points to defend, it sounds doable.

There are few players who look annoyingly useless. Bueno Vista is one of them.

Re: Djokovic: "I was offered $200K to lose match"

He would have to play qualies.
And "in the region" it is a bit funny. Moscow is closer to Bangkok than Melbourne is :)

That is, because the article is dated 2007, we are talking 2006 tournament. Not 2007. And in 2006 he was what, Top 20 player? 200k sounds a bit too much..

Re: BBC: Evidence suggests match fixing rife in Tennis

Where does it say so?
They say that the player played in the last decade and is the US Open winner.
If it were 15 years ago, I'd point fingers at Kafelnikov. His European clay stretches of loss...
