Re: List your 5 favourite matches of all time

Am I suposed to? Never pretended I did. A match can make it to the list because of its historical significance, the players who were involved, written accounts and many other reasons.

Re: Compelled to be a non-defending champion

Interesting. Let's say Roberto Bautista Agut wants to participate in both events and requests to play in 's-Hertogenbosch in the morning and in Stuttgart in the afternoon - or viceversa. Would the...

Re: Halle Final: L. Hewitt def. R. Federer 3-6 7-6(4) 6-4

Right.

And Hewitt also won 's-Hertogenbosch in 2001, so I wonder: is there any other player who has ever won at least three of the tune-up events before Wimbledon?

Re: Halle Final: L. Hewitt def. R. Federer 3-6 7-6(4) 6-4

It is remarkable that Hewitt has never lost a final on grass (7-0 record). The guy has beaten Sampras, Henman or Federer in some of those finals - and of course, he won Wimbledon as well.

Re: Official Race to the Barclays World Tour finals, London - daily updates (posts 1

Battle for Year-End No.1

Unfortunately a potential WTF final between Federer and Nadal to decide the year-end No. 1 is now impossible.

Re: Estoril Final : Montañes def Blake 5-7 7-6(6) 6-0

Montañes saved one MP in his QF match against Gilles Simon (5-7 6-4 7-6(4)) as well. Has it ever happened before that the winner of a tournament has saved MP in more than one match? I guess it has...

Re: Uncle Toni: "Rafa is at a second or third level history wise"

Exactly. Geniuses need - to some extent, only to some extent - circumstances that are favourable to them, but... you can't just "make" a genius, a genius is and will always be born.
