Re: Federer had arthroscopic surgery on his knee (OUT of Dubai and Rotterdam).

Very sad news. I think it's more realistic to expect him to return in Madrid at the earliest (assuming he skips Miami and MC as normal this year). It probably makes sense to return on clay and ease...

Re: Will Golden State Warriors break the record?

I just want to do a quick bit of maths to see how likely they are to break the record.

Here are some rough-sketch percentage chances of them winning each of their remaining matches.

Cavaliers...

Re: Will Golden State Warriors break the record?

The Pistons were supposed to be the easy part of this little phase.

Golden State are lucky that Chicago have been nothing short of awful lately, otherwise I would say they likely get sweeped on...

Warriors rack up their third defeat of the season, approaching the halfway mark. Considering they've barely played anybody particularly great on the road, yet, I'm not too optimistic about them...

Re: Will Golden State Warriors break the record?

At least the loss came in the last game of the road trip. They can go back to Oakland now and minimise any potential domino effect from occurring.

Fair play to the Bucks! They were very physical...

I expect them to lose a few of those tricky matches, but also to slip up in some 'easier' ones, just as they could have last night (don't think Boston are a bad team FWIW). They will have a fabulous...

Re: Will Golden State Warriors break the record?

Reading through this thread, the people saying that Draymond Green is the Warriors' second best player are deluded. It's clearly Thompson, and yesterday's laboured performance against Boston proves...

Re: Let's settle it once and for all MTF. Is Federer playing the best tennis of his l

You can point at individual performances in isolation, such as the Wimbledon semi-final from this year, and say that it was his best level ever. I probably wouldn't disagree.

But if you observe a...

Re: Borna Coric; Predict Number of Slams

He may have improved, but he's still completely toothless. His best wins have come at Mickey Mouse events, while for instance, Kyrgios' have come on the bigger stage. That is the biggest clue that...

Re: Borna Coric; Predict Number of Slams

Zero. Being a good grinder gets you through the lower tiers quickly, as opponents often self destruct. However, at the highest level, that game style simply doesn't cut it, unless you're an...

Re: USO R3: [5] Wawrinka def. Bemelmans, 6-3 7-6(5) 6-4

Bemelmans deserved his place here in the third round. He beat one of the best unseeded players in the draw pretty convincingly in the first round, and was well on the comeback trail before Sock was...

Re: US Open R2: Andy "Comeback King" Murray [3] def. Adrian Mannarino 5-7 4-6 6-1 6-3

Obviously some traders thought so, as Mannarino was evens at 0-2. Personally I was never really concerned for Murray, the fact he started to run away with that third set before it started to become...

Re: Kyrgios says to Wawrinka that Kokkinakis banged his girlfriend.

Oh for fuck's sake everybody, get a grip. Nowt wrong with what he said. It wasn't insulting, and I'd imagine the comment wasn't slanderous either.

It's called sledging, and it's part of Aussie...

Re: Montreal R2: Muller def. Monfils 6-3 3-6 7-6(4)

Don't understand the love for Muller. I guess his style is a bit different, but it's not like his ground strokes are beautiful, or particularly good for that matter. Nevertheless, if you can serve...

Re: Montreal R1: Stakhovsky d. (W)Peliwo 6-1 5-7 6-2

I know.

I'm just poking fun at the TennisTV commentator who kept referring to him as 'the Russian', rather than 'the Ukrainian'.

Re: CH Aptos QR2: (8) Stepanek def. Bangoura 6-2 5-4 default

Doesn't make sense though. Players smack balls out of courts all the time and never get defaulted. Only warned for ball abuse.

It must have hit somebody in the same way that Tim Henman did all...

Re: CH Aptos QR2: (8) Stepanek def. Bangoura 6-2 5-4 default

Apparently he smacked a ball away in anger and it hit somebody. :lol:

Usually there's only one man and his dog there for challenger qualies, so Bangoura must have mad skillz to hit the bullseye.

Re: Nadal finishing the year in Top 3

I can't see him winning 4 or 5 matches in a row on hard-courts at present, which this would require him to do. So no, not happening.

Re: Why has Dominic Thiem's serve declined in the past 12-18 months?

Yes, you're right. I remember Verdasco did a similar thing, serving mostly one season around 210km/h (I've definitely seen Thiem go past that mark), to mostly kicking it in the next. I never...

Why has Dominic Thiem's serve declined in the past 12-18 months?

I'm pretty sure when he had his 2014 breakthrough - the Murray match in Rotterdam, the Wawrinka match in Madrid to name but a few examples - he was serving pretty well. Much more powerfully than now,...

Re: Del Potro splites with his coach and physical trainer

Good decision. He's probably never going to play fully, ever again, so it makes sense for these guys to find new jobs.

Re: Karlovic is a cheat

It's not cheating for me. Watch it in real time and don't bother with the silly slow motion replays because what really matters is whether the player intends to hit the ball twice, and people's...
