Re: Andy Murray on Louis Armstrong

I don't think the conditions at Louis Armstrong should be too bad for Andy. And there are too few matches to use statistical considerations, as suggested already in the thread start.

Re: R. Federer has a huge chance to win the US Open

I think Federer chances according to the odds at betfair is quite accurate. That gives him 6-7% chance of winning. The analysis made by the op has a couple of valid points. That Federer picked up his...

Re: Montreal R3: Gulbis def Murray 6-4 6-3

Andy didn't play very well and served poorly. That said, I think Gulbis played really well in the late stages of the match, and against such competition Murray may have gotten severe problems anyway....

Re: Blatantly unfair that 2 slams are on played on hard courts

While I realize it is perfectly unrealistic, I would love an indoor slam. Indoor conditions makes it possible to play closer to the lines, and thus favors the players able to hit ground-strokes with...

Re: Bastad QF: Dimitrov def. Monaco 6-3 6-2

Although I like Dimitrov's game and hope that he can make further progress I must say that I'm not very impressed by his match today. Honestly Monaco was truly awful and more or less any player in...

Re: Wimbledon Expert Final Predictions 2013

Some major arguments for Murray: 1) Great grass court record since over a year back: (Only one loss since last Wimbledon, winning Olympics and Queens). 2) Beat Djokovic convincingly in last grass...

Re: Murray needs to learn some respect

Assuming that Murray's comment "not any more" referred to Federer being a great player, I think the comment shows that Murray still have a huge respect for Federer's game. A joke like this ain't the...

Re: Nadal - "I dont feel like favorite for tomorrow. I feel that I am a finalist"

Interesting that so many are provoked by Nadal's comments. They are certainly right that he most likely doesn't speak his mind when asked about being the favorite, and I can understand if people...

Re: Monfils believes he can win a slam. What chances do you give him?

He certainly has the tools for it, but to win a slam consistency over two weeks is needed. Monfils sometimes seem to change his level of play ridiculously fast. One get the impression that he can be...

Re: Nadal: Madrid red clay is ‘great'

I think Castafiore made an interesting (and valid) point that Nadal likes a surface where the topspin works, but not necessarily a slow one. I have a bit of difficulty to get my tennis experience...

Re: McEnroe: Nadal should be top seed at French Open

Nadal is certainly among the top two favorites, and probably he is number one. And Mc Enroe is of course right that none of the top ranked players want him in his quarter. But changing the ranking...

Re: Murray: I can win French Open

Murray says he has a chance to win Roland Garros. According to the odds at betfair (7/2-2013) Murray's chances to win is less than 1/14 but bigger than 1/15. Anyone who think the odds at betfair...

Re: AO R2: Djokovic bulldozes Harrison 6-1, 6-2, 6-3

I agree with all the posters saying that Harrison appeared utterly powerless. But from the statistics his first served averaged 196 km/h, which was 6 km/h faster than the average first serve of Nole....

Re: Now can we say big 4?

"Delpo has 1 slam too so we can say big 5" Nah, I think we can only count multiple slam winners who are active players to be in the big league. Thus the big four clearly must be Federer, Nadal,...

Re: Berdych is a more consistent Rosol . . [Won't win USO]

I'm not saying Berdych will beat Murray although I think he has a decent chance. But he certainly can beat two top fours in a row, and he has already proven he can make it in slam tournamnents. As I...

Re: U.S. Open - Wawrinka:"I am confident that I can beat Novak"

I'm not sure Wawrinka's mindset is more positive than that of other players. Sure he said he was confident that he can beat Novak. But from the context of the whole interview it sounded more like an...

Re: USO R4: Andy Murray kicks Milos Raonic back to Canada 6-4, 6-4, 6-2

A few other threads have discussed how the mindset of players affects their game. For example, many posters have deemed Berdych a looser with a too negative mindset, and similarly del Potro have been...

Re: Del Potro Believes...

I don't think it is del Potro´s mindset that makes him a winner. His talent and dedication is good enough to give him a chance to big victories, and he doesn't feel embarassed to say it, since he has...

Re: US Open R4 : Berdych def. Almagro 7-6 (4) 6-4 6-1

In spite of Almagro gifting Berdych the fourth set and losing serve three times in that set only, he still fulfilled all three keys to the match. Berdych fulfilled just one of them. Not overly...

Re: Tsonga: I must play more smaller tournaments if i want to keep my ranking

If dropping his ranking and thereby meeting the top 4 before the quarters is the danger Tsonga has in mind, then there is really no need to play more 250-tournaments. He has a huge margin as it is,...

Re: Berdych: "The majors are not for everyone... probably just for three guys."

One can make the case (as many here have) that Berdych has the wrong mental attitude, and that prevents him from being a winner. But if he had said something quite opposite (like "I have a chance to...

Re: Is the serve or return game more important?

To be able to return serves well you need good anticipation, quick reactions and movement, as well as good ground stokes. If you have that you are more or less guaranteed to have a solid ground game...
