Re: Why does Nadal have more Slam seasons than Federer?

If this discussion is about winning 'tier 1' tournaments then why did you start using a season as a measurement unit and not a tournament? Because we can all do the math there.

It's because you...

Re: BBC: Evidence suggests match fixing rife in Tennis

The more I read about this topic, the more convinced I am that organized betting on tennis, or just sports in general, should be forbidden altogether. The damage to the sport simply exceeds the added...

Re: Does Anyone Agree with Nadal's Assertion that Tennis is Becoming Crazy?

I don't agree with Nadal. People were always trying to hit winners against him, but he used to get his racket behind the ball more often back then.

A lot of players have always tried to play low...

Re: Robert Federer confirms to ESPN that Roger is playing better than he ever has

That's simply not true. Sure, Federer's service game is one of the best, but he's returning very well this year.

At the start of the year he was amongst the best returners of the game as well. I...

Re: I want to hug Djokovic...I hope he wins a French Open.

I think Djokovic kinda cracked under the prospect of a career grand slam. He's been the favorite or one of the favorites for years now and he's been close a couple of times now. It's like when...

Re: Stan vs Murray: 2 Slams

His record and general level of play in slam finals outmatches Murray's, that's for sure.

Re: Who do you *want* to win tomorrow?

I don't really care who wins, but I'm glad we've got two nice players in the final. Tennis wins either way.

Re: Who Will Stop Djokovic Getting 18 Slams?

I'm in doubt about the young guns as well, I think that it is becoming harder and harder for young players to make a mark on the tour nowadays with the big four having a 10-man support staff to...

Re: First Time Murray Has Won 2 Sets Against Nole Since Wimbledon 2013

I don't think it's really about the service. Djokovic dominated Murray in the last set because practically every point Djokovic was allowed to dictate from the baseline, whilst Murray was at least...

Re: Who Will Stop Djokovic Getting 18 Slams?

I agree with you in the sense that the remainder of Novak's career trajectory could go two ways - he could do an Agassi or have the same trajectory most players have: his achievements decline.

Re: Kyrgios will never be top 10!!

Kyrgios played a pretty good match considering the elbow problem he had. His serving was way below its usual level to trouble Murray.

In the first set he was serving better and he really troubled...

Re: Most difficult shot in tennis?

I agree. Backhand smash is difficult, sure, but in my experience if you focus on placement over power it's not that hard to hit a decent backhand smash. A tweener on the other hand is near impossible...

Re: Federer: Novak in the top 4 of all the time? I can't reply[disappoint all the oth

really? It's one thing to give this example to prove that it is possible that Djokovic could pull off such a feat, but you really expect him to do it? There's far too many variables that all have to...

Re: French Open has worst venue of all slams?

seeing as the French Open does not boast hard courts it can by definition not be the worst venue.

Re: Federer's RG 2015 Outfit.

I had a good laugh at this yesterday during his match. It's even worse than Barcelona's away kits of the past two seasons.
