Re: What are your reasons for Nadal's sudden irrelevance on Grass?

It's these two: "Grass is simply his worst surface" & "Terminal physical decline screws up everything in his game".

Grass has always been his worst surface, yet he had less success on hard courts as...

Re: Motor sports

Cool to have a non-F1 motorsports thread.

I follow DTM occasionally but my favorite series are IndyCar and sports car series (Le Mans/FIA WEC, etc.)

Re: Where is tennis spectacle gonne to?

This is a mug era but the RG final was the GOAT match. Eggovic was as good as ever but Stan was blowing him off the court. I always thought the 2011 Fed-Egg SF was the GOAT match but this was even...

Re: New sports and disciplines in the 2016 and 2018 olympics

Golf shouldn't be at the Olympics, just like tennis shouldn't.

In most Olympic sports, the Olympics are the most important event, at least in some way. In athletics or swimming it's obvious. In...

Re: "learned" versus "learnt"

Yeah, same here. But since then I've learned to used 'learned'. Or rather, I'm writing it 'learned', then I remember the irregular verbs list and check that, just to see both are right, 'learned' the...

Re: Laver: "I think grass should be right up Wawrinka’s alley. His serve is perfect..

He was playing very well at Wimby last year. Come on, it's not so fast anymore. About ten years ago, players were saying the (already slowed-down) USO is the fastest slam, so Wimbledon is just...

Re: Roland Garros SF: Novak Djokovic def. Andy Murray 6-3 6-3 5-7 5-7 6-1

Many people would find it crazy but I was cheering for Nole here because I thought he's the better match-up for Stan. OK, Stan's previously had wins against Andy but his pushing was so insane that I...

Re: Who is the best clay-courter in this season ?

If we look at the best performances, it was

Wawrinka @ RG

Djokovic @ Rome/RG
Murray @ Madrid/RG

But if we rate the entire clay season, then it's

Djokovic

Re: Did you feel sorry for Djokovic today?

Yes for those wasted chances in last three years. Not for today's performance, he just got completely outplayed.

Re: Aggressive tennis won today....a victory for tennis even in an era of slow courts

A great result for tennis.

I'm sure people enjoyed Stan's offensive shotmaking a lot more than some of the long rallies in Djokovic-Murray SF.

Edit: Just realized I need to update my sig.

Re: Which Wawrinka slam win was more surprising and which was more impressive?

AO '14 for sure. Everybody knew he can play great tennis, even make the final with a nice draw, and challenge best players but not beat them. He had never beaten a big name but non-big3 Murray on a...

Re: Hockey thread

I think I read somewhere there'd be some kind of a qualification for the two spots in future editions (if they happen), the 2016 edition comes too soon to have qualies.

Re: Ridiculous scheduling of Rome QFs

The joint events should have better scheduling, no WTA-ATP-WTA-ATP-WTA-ATP... scheduling but WTA-WTA...WTA-ATP-ATP...ATP. Start WTA at 8am and ATP at 2pm.
