Re: Tomic trapped in a tennis career he doesn?t enjoy, doesn?t regret Wimbledon comme

Re: Will the Big 4 all reach the SF this Wimbledon?

Yes, the 13 percent follows from the others, but interesting to see the odds for each match to produce those stats. Djokovic and Federer have 1 extra match, so unless their odds for those matches...

Re: Alexei Popyrin

His face pic does a little, but Nadal plays more with his arms than with his face :)

He potentially has great career ahead of him, but so do many others. More have the potential than realise the...

Re: Andy Murray: "I would prefer to try a shorter set"

If you desire shorter matches, the answer is very simple.

For every match, the winner of the last point is declared the winner of the entire match.

Re: Nottingham CH R2: Groth def. Klein 6-3 6-4 via game penalty by Lahyani

The key point here is 'it was not Klein's first warning'.

Layhani seemed predisposed to a negative interpretation of what Klein said.

Further, clearly this outburst taken alone did not...

Re: WWW? Istanbul QF: [1] Raonic vs. [6] Tomic

Even if both submitted together, two withdraws cannot be processed at once and once one withdraws it is too late for the other. So it could be a race to withdraw, but even that race would have a...

Re: Miami QF: Fabio Fognini def. [2] Kei Nishikori 6-4 6-2

Fog did what was needed to win.
Not something to rely on from Fog, which justifies an injured Nishikori playing even though injured as it was very possible he could have collected the points...

Re: Battle of 5: Who is going to be number 1 at the end of 2017?


Ok, this is not a 'Kyrgios' is a likely year end no1 prediction, it is a 'if someone surprising comes out of left field to become no1', then Kyrgios is a contender.

Firstly, let me say...

Re: Which non-winner of Roland Garros would you like to see win it in 2017?

I voted Fognini, just for the pure humour of the idea of him as a slam winner.
