Re: Who has a better peak. Del Potro vs. Wawrinka?

Over the course of an entire match? Del Potro.

But Stan will have this strange runs where he just slaps winners everywhere for like 8 games in a row. Then he'll immediately drop back to a low...

Re: Play to win 2 points vs Nadal for 1 billion Or take 300k.

Serious question:

For many people wouldn't the chance to play a full match with Rafa alone be worth well more than 300 grand?

Fuck it, go for the billion. The math is on your side. My strategy...

Re: Best tennis stroke of all time

I hate Rafa. I root against him every time he's playing.

His forehand is still the greatest shot in the history of tennis. It breaks the geometry of the sport.

Re: Jarmere Jenkins faceplants in California

Does it piss anyone else off that this is a professional tennis tournament and "center court" appears to be patched? Jesus wherever this futures is, do less.

Re: Which are the top 5 most glorious sights on a tennis court?

When Djokovic plays a match and his level raises the other persons to amazing heights. For example:

-Wawrinka at AO in 2013. So much better than the 2014 match. One of my favorites to...

Re: Article John Isner Angry He was not on center court

Having seen Isner in person twice now, it's because he isn't entertaining. At all. People are constantly talking during his matches because nothing is happening a lot of the time. We (America)...

Re: Is Dominic Thiem's game style comparable to Wawrinka's?

Meh. I mean yes, but it's a pretty lazy comparison. I don't think their stroke production is the same. If Thiem hit a 2HBH that comparison probably wouldn't be thrown out there.

Re: Newport SF: [2] Karlovic def. Groth 6-4 6-4

Lady behind me at this one was really pissed. She had never seen Groth play (not too unexpected) but also didn't know who Ivo was. When I explained they are both terrible at returning she said "how...

Re: Newport SF: [3] Hewitt def. [7] Sock 6-1 6-2

Was at this one. I saw Hewitt play here last year too and he was much much better this year. Hit his backhand incredibly well.

As clear as it was that Sock was exhausted, he could have made this...

Re: The Scariest In Form Player on the Other Side of the Net? [Multiple Poll]

1. Honest to god, peak Rosol may be the most destructive force among active players. Who was beating him in the fifth set against Rafa? No one. Everything went in at 100mph off of both wings.

Re: RG QF: Gulbis def Berdych 6-3 6-2 6-4

Well, mark down the end date for MTF. June 8th, 2014. That'll be the date where Gulbis beats Nadal in the French Open final. It will cause the forum to overload and spontaneously combust, only to...

Re: Is Terrible/Confusing/Lacking TV/Internet Coverage Harming Tennis's US Popularity

This is 1000% true. I love tennis. I try to watch as much as I can. But until Tennis Channel Plus came out the other day, I couldn't even PAY to watch the majority of tennis tournaments below the...

Re: RG R1 Janowicz [22] def Estrella 6-1 6-4 6(6)-7 6-4

I was honestly impressed by Estrella Burgos. I mean he doesn't really have the weapons to do much, but he went for it when he had the chance unlike a lot of the guys ranked 70+. I hope he can put...

Real #8 is now #9 in the Race. The real world and the other real world may collide soon.

Re: What's the difference between watching tennis on tv and in real life?

I've only seen Newport in person, so my experience is probably different than most.

Some stuff that is probably unique in general:
In person the serves are so much more impressive.
On the outside...

Re: Dolgopolov in 2014 (former "Dolgopolov in 2012")

It's amazing how much better his game is now that he never slices his backhand. I know that's why many around here originally liked his game, but when you take that away you have a clean ball...

Yea Nadals mishits are absolutely nasty. It's amazing most players are even able to deal with them. I never realized just how much one of his mishits changes a rally until his match against Gulbis...

Re: Roger Federer is the new 2014 Anderson

I decided to see how this "Belt" idea worked for tennis so I did all of 2013 to see what kind of flow it had. I was bored.

Random note, did the end of 2012 to make sure Novak started 2013 with it,...

Re: Roger Federer is the new 2014 Anderson

In the NBA they have what's called "The Belt" that's the property of the team that wins the NBA title each year. It's not an actual belt, just a thing the internet came up with. So the reigning...

Re: Why is Gulbis so popular here?

This comment is just stupid. What does the way his forehand looks have to do with talent?

Lets compare his accomplishments to other 25 and under players:

Re: 2014 Live commentary vol. 6

That was one of the most mature points I've ever seen Gulbis play. Earned that break.
