He beat a player who the market thought he'd struggle against. Besides, do you think Del Potro is the 30th best player in the world?

You're not actually addressing the point I made, which is rather telling.

But anyway, MTF is so stupid at times. We've seen Murray on tour for way over a decade now, and the conventional wisdom...

Re: WWW ? Roland Garros SF: (3)Stanislas Wawrinka Vs. (1)Andy Murray

I no longer trust Wawrinka athletically to really have a great chance of winning in this match-up over 5 sets, especially on clay when the points are going to be long and physical. He will have to...

Re: your sincere advice to Djokovic

I would tell him to not practice until he gets the urge to play again. Recharging his batteries for a few months might be what he needs.

I take your point, but what I'm getting at doesn't require a whole load of tactical variety. Sure he doesn't have many layers to his game, but he has the ability to up the ante and play with more...

Re: Seoul CH QF: Duck Hee Lee def. Sela 5-7 7-6 3-0 ret. (saves 2MPs)

I can't wait until Duck plays main tour events consistently. I am anxiously waiting for the first time somebody ignorant tries to do an on-court interview with him immediately after a win.

Re: Madrid QF: Cuevas def. A. Zverev 3-6 6-0 6-4

Zverev disappointed me a lot with his tactics. I guess he was mentally tired, but he was just putting the ball back into court late in the third set - as if he was expecting Cuevas to miss. He got...

Re: Surely time is up now for Jim Courier… Should he be sacked?

This one wasn't as bad for him as that GB tie.

But the Bryans have to be gone now. With a 4 man roster, you sacrifice a lot of flexibility putting 2 guys in there who can't play singles. It would...

Re: WWW Newport F: (3)Muller vs. (2)Karlovic

Muller isn't good enough to win a title. Hopefully Karlovic rejects his latest attempt.

It will be a terrible match, regardless.

The most troubling bosses in the game are optional ones. If you find the snowy castle (it's a secret area), the boss at the end is very tough. Also, if you find the upper cathedral ward (another...

I agree, it's kind of a bullshit boss, it's only hard because it poisons you. It's annoying how you have to collect blood echoes to buy antidotes when you run out. And also, it's annoying that the...

If you find the Blood Starved Beast hard, wait until some of the later bosses! But you'll get better and learn how to master the combat,...

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

Oh FFS, you could have warned us that was a major FUTURE spoiler. But if it does happen, I'd be happy.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

This show is turning to shit again, like last season.

Even though it finished just a short while ago, I'm struggling to think of more than a handful of interesting moments that occurred.

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 11

But he bullies most of his regular opponents and doesn't run nearly as much as he does in this match-up. The heavy conditions for Thiem aren't good either, much more energy sapping. I personally feel...

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 11

Great play from Thiem. He has to work so hard in this match-up, which is why I'm sceptical of his ability to win in BO5, but it's really fun to watch the contrast in styles at play here.

Hope the...

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 11

Thiem is a good scrapper and fighter, and that forehand is monstrous when he has time. However, if you could design a player in a lab to expose his weaknesses, you'd go for something close to Goffin....

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 10

This is like watching a father school his son. That third set donation was just so Nishikori didn't cry too much.

FFS Gasquet. You don't go behind little guys on the approach, they turn too quickly.

Ding ding, and would you know it, he's never won a big title in his life. Body language is generally a good indicator of a player's relative standing in the game. That generation of players born...

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 10

Are you talking about the lob that Nishikori left by mistake? That was not lucky, it was textbook. To me it just seemed like Nishikori didn't fancy bricking the backhand overhead.

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 10

Gasquet has owned Nishikori throughout the years. I wouldn't have read too much into the recent two defeats he had against him, especially if the injury problem he had was particularly limiting.

Re: 2016 Live commentary thread vol. 10

Nishikori is so overrated. Cannot believe people believed he could beat Murray in this tournament, and that still stands if he somehow finds a way back into this match.

Re: Wtaw (Gen. WTA Discussion) [Volume III]

Kasatkina is fighting! I absolutely love her game, even if it isn't so great for clay.

Surely Bertens must be getting tired from all the tennis she has played recently.
