Re: Brisbane SF: Raonic def. Nishikori 67(2) 76(4) 76(4)

Tonight's Raonic was a different beast to the Raonic in yesterday's mental meltdown against Groth :yeah:

Talking Re: MTF has a bad reputation on TF

:haha:

Sad that it's not even an exaggeration! I like Serena - her success is testament to how shit the WTA currently is - but it's a joke that her fans run a dictatorship at TF. At least MTF's more...

Re: Top German court clears Euro bailout fund. €495billion heading to Greece

I understand why German voters are unhappy with having to fork over more of their money. But I can also see why German leaders ultimately support the bailouts. It's not about the loans being repaid,...

Re: Equal prize money debate (Gilles Simon comments on it)

I take it you're referring to what I said about ATP players having more variety in their game. If that's the case, when I mentioned net play, slices and footwork I used those as examples of the guys...

Re: Equal prize money debate (Gilles Simon comments on it)

The shot-making, the variety, the athleticism - that's the quality of men's tennis which makes the difference. When even the lower ranked players have more in their arsenal then the top women stars,...

Re: AO R4: Dragon Ball Kei makes Tsonga sushi 2-6, 6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3

I caught only the last set, and what was wrong with Tsonga? He served brilliantly in his first service game, then brain farted the match away with a truck load of errors. Ironically the commentators...

Re: What do you think about death penalty?

No, because I doubt anyone knows enough about life itself or its complexities.

Re: What do you think of Palestinian statehood bid

It's a stalemate - Israel won't budge without its security guaranteed and the Palestinians won't give recognition unless borders are redrawn back to what they were before 1967 :shrug:

Re: Tsunami hits north-eastern Japan after massive quake

Terribly unfortunate about the lack of technology, yes, but mankind has to make do with whatever it has. For example, buildings in Japan are constructed according to very strict guidelines that...

Re: Tsunami hits north-eastern Japan after massive quake

Apparently the warning was issued only 20 minutes prior to the tsunami hitting.

Just watched the waves crashing into Sendai. Horrible, just absolutely horrible :sad: And at 8.9 on the richter scale,...

Re: Dutch Politician Goes On Trial for "Hate Speech"

That's cutting it a bit too thick ain't it? One of the basic elements of a legal system is to limit disruptions towards day-to-day existence. While Wilders may have the right to make known his...

Re: Dutch Politician Goes On Trial for "Hate Speech"

Or maybe because the West, with the opportunity their affluence affords, is more easily able to exploit and suppress other cultures? To be fair, history shows that any dominant society, regardless of...

Re: Dutch Politician Goes On Trial for "Hate Speech"

Hear, Hear! With the language he's used, it's bound to inflame tensions and possibly lead to violence against the Muslim populace. Ironic then that he's made tenuous links between Quaranic verses and...

Re: Newsweek: "Finland the best country in the world"

On the surface it may appear as such, but dig a little deeper and it's likely you'll find the attitude towards suicide to be more rueful and sympathtic.

And I really fail to see how a link can be...

Re: The Chinese offensive for the 5th Slam...a far-fetched scenario ?

I agree with what you said about prestige and history giving a sense of importance to the Slams, but even they had to start somewhere to get to that point. If China's committed to keep investing in...

Re: Fed/Nadal starting to remind me of Graf/Seles

Statistics can be skewed either way to prove one point or another, as you've just shown. That 5-2 lead was from 1989-1991. Why exclude 1992 and 1993 when Monica was also number 1? Steffi still lead...

Re: Fed/Nadal starting to remind me of Graf/Seles

I'll be going off-topic here from the Fed/Nadal part of the issue :o



Given Monica's form in 1993, it was likely that she would've ended the season as the number one player. She was just 19 years...

Re: Murray withdraws Tokyo

It's hard to make a judgement on how popular the sport and the tournament is because there are so many other variables to consider. Yes there have been empty stands in some of the matches at the Pan...

Re: Murray withdraws Tokyo

It's a shame that tournaments in Asia (except for the ones in China) aren't having the top players committed to them. Yes the ones in Europe and North America generally offer more ranking points and...

Re: Do you believe in eternal love?

Sure, why not? The catch is that it takes a lot of hard work to make it happen. Contrary to what those romantic-comedy movies tell us, I don't believe "love" is all that's needed to sustain a...

Re: French Open final intruder facing prison term

After what happened to Monica Seles 16 years ago, you'd reckon that security would be alert enough to stop potential crazies before they could get within reaching distance of a tennis player. Clearly...
