Re: New rule for first few months of Challengers next year

It's a massively flawed idea because it removes a major aspect of the sport: that both players have an opportunity to win every point. People say there's no difference between winning the point by...

Re: Queens R2: Cilic def. Ebden 6-2 6-1

Matt posted on twitter that he has a foot injury, which would partly explain this scoreline.

Re: IW QFR: Matosevic def. Yani 6-2,6-2

Marinko is an interesting cat. He's really only had proper top level coaching for a couple of years and came up outside the Tennis Oz system. Hewitt rates him highly and he's shown that when he has...

Re: Indian Wells QFR: Ebden def. Ram 6-4 6-3

Lack of game? Have you ever seen him play? He plays aggressively, can hit topspin and slice, volleys well (unlike 90% of the rest of the top 100), and is tactically astute.

So let's bag him out...

Re: Australian Open Wildcards.

I note that Hewitt has not entered the Wildcard Playoff.

Tennis Australia has a policy that it won't give wildcards to players who don't enter the playoff (unless they are injured.)

Will they...

Re: Matthew Ebden

So Matt wins three qualifying rounds, beats the world no. 67, then gives the world number 1 a good test and all he gets is 15 ranking points!!

It's a disgrace that Queens is only a 250. It should...

Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.

There's obviously something going on with Carsten.

He retired after losing the first set in qualifying at a Futures event in the US.

Either he's been playing injured for awhile or he's lost his...

Re: Week 6: Caloundra, Australia [Entry List]

Caloundra is a long way from where the cyclone hit so there's very little chance of it being affected.

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

I watched this and I have to say it was pretty depressing. Mayer worked out pretty quick that all he had to do was make Tomic move and the point was over. His serve was pitiful for a guy of that...

Re: The Mark "Baby Poo" Verryth Cheering Thread!

A great year for a kid with huge potential, and all the weapons to succeed at a higher level. And it seems he's been doing it this year without much help from TA.

Re: Llegs Cheering Thread 2010

Re: Matthew Ebden

He's top seed at the futures event in Glasgow as a wild card. Smart move as he should win it and keep on a roll indoors.

Re: The Mighty MM

I'd like to see Marinko do well, but that's a pretty good example of why TA are reluctant to fund him. If I knew that my TA fees were going to fund a guy doing that, I'd be well pissed off.

Re: Thomas Muster is back!

He won three games. Guess this answers the question about whether this will be a worthwhile comeback.

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

Hewitt is unlikely to play Davis Cup against Japan. For him to fly from Europe to Australia and back sandwiched between major claycourt tournaments and just before the French is a recipe for disaster.

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

This is giving the Davis Cup selectors a real headache. They can't justify selecting Tomic to play on clay as he clearly can not yet play to a decent standard on it, and Hewitt is almost certain not...

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

Does anyone know what Tomic's coaching arrangements are for the claycourt season? I'm guessing he is sticking with the same setup which is going to help him didley squat.

Considering TA is...

Re: The Mighty MM

I watched this match on Fox Sports with the Sky UK commentary. They weren't too impressed with Marinko's game, and fair enough too, cos we was not playing great.

He obviously has the power to...

Re: The Bernard Tomic Cheering Thread!

I'd say he's been told he's going to get the French WC and he has to start playing on the surface a bit more to avoid another thrashing like he got last year.

If he's going to be a good player he...

Re: The Mighty MM

He's in and plays Llodra first round. He and Lindahl seem to be pushing each other along.

Two non-TA players showing how you can progress AFTER you reach the age of 20.

Re: The Todd Reid Thread - Results, photos, gossip, news and fans in here!!!

There's no doubt Todd is talented and it's good to see him back, but I'd be very surprised if he gets a wildcard into anything unless he wins a Futures or two between now and January and plays more...
