Re: Rasheed interested in coaching Kyrgios

No. Just no. Rasheed should just go work at a gym as a personal trainer or something. Great work ethic but a shit coach.

Players should be wary of Rasheed. His track record is not the best and I...

Re: What do you think about Marion Bartoli's extreme weight loss.

I think she looks amazing. I think people just aren't used to seeing the skinnier version of her yet and aren't ready to embrace change but she looks happy (and a bit like Flavia Pennetta IMO) in...

Re: Newcombe medal contenders

It's going to be a tough call this year but I think the winner of the Newcombe Medal will come from the Davis Cup tie in Darwin. The heroics of Hewitt and Groth will be the winner, but which one do...

Re: What if court lines had sensors in the future?

It definitely happened. TEL was a "thing" for about a month in 1994. TEL was inspired by the Cyclops line-calling system. TEL paved the way for Hawk-Eye, which tournaments widely use today.

Re: What if court lines had sensors in the future?

In 1994, The Hopman Cup experimented with the TEL (Tennis Electronic Lines) system. It started off well. Lines were called accurately and players didn't challenge any of the calls. Chips of metal...

Re: Tommy Paul . The American dream

Interesting. Tommy has the perfect build for a tennis player - same as Djokovic's physique and almost the same height. Looks a very promising player after his French Open win and qualifying for the...

Re: USO R2: Bemelmans def. Sock 4-6 4-6 6-3 2-1 ret.

Jack is a professional and he did the best he could. He had a doubles match the night before and still gave it his best in that match - that's what a true professional does. So I doubt he would use...

Re: Wimbledon 2015 : Where is the love for Djokovic ? From Telegraph

Federer has a longer history with Wimbledon. It's understandable that they love him more than Djokovic. IMO, Djokovic tries way too hard to be liked and makes it far too well-known that he craves to...

Re: Patrick Rafter vs Kyrgios/Tomic

This is the third time this year that Rafter has spoken out about Tomic and Kyrgios. The first time was 7 days out from the Australian Open. It was seemingly unprovoked. No reactions from Tomic or...

Re: Do you share birthday with any players ?

Mine is the same as Andy Murray. I even showed him on my drivers license when I met him in a hotel elevator. He was friendly to me after that. We hopped off on the same floor and then realized we...

Re: ESPN, top 10 tantrums of 2013.

Some of these players were just annoying. Some players felt robbed and I can understand their frustration. You're never going to win an argument against a chair umpire about line calls, so you feel...

Re: Lleyton Hewitt wins 2013 Newcombe Medal - over Tomic, Stosur, Barty/Dellacqua

I don't know if this award was panel-based judging or voted by Tennis Australia members and professional players. If it's the latter, then I can see how Hewitt won it. He's a popular figure amongst...

Re: Male Player Bulges

Where are the Wimbledon Tommy Haas pics? Those are obscene! The only thing that doesn't make it a porno is the thin layer of fabric covering his privates, called Nike tennis shorts..

Re: Why do Australian born "Greeks and Cypriots" go for Baghdatis?

In answer to the question, it's because Baghdatis is someone that they can relate to. It doesn't necessarily mean that they dislike the Aussie players or dislike being Australian. Just that they...

Re: Nadal, Federer rift emerges at Australian Open

I agree. The ATP Tour calendar is designed for EVERYONE, not just the top handful of players. Scheduling is EVERYTHING! Roger knows this. Rafa is starting to talk a lot of crap.

Re: Title fave James Blake pulls out of Brisbane and Aussie Open.

Granted, a knee injury is still a "personal problem," but why couldn't they have just reported that he had a knee injury?
