Re: Article: The Curious Case of Fernando Verdasco's Odds

Exactly right.

I donīt think anyone is questioning whatīs going on there. It is fairly obvious, but as Hypnotize said, there is no solid proof. And as long as thatīs the case, odds movements...

Re: Will Fabio Fognini go down as one of Nadal's rivals?

Off the top of your head, can you name one of these kind of rivalries? Iīm sure there are plenty of match-ups that have been very equal over the years and are not insignificant to the players...

Re: Will Fabio Fognini go down as one of Nadal's rivals?

This is excatly the way I see it. A true rivalry is played in big matches, like GS finals. The stakes need to be high, it doesnīt matter how good the match-up is if all the matches take place in...

Re: Kuala Lumpur F: [1] Ferrer def. [2] Lopez: 7:5 7:5 (3)

Ugly match. If Lopez had some sort of gameplan, he certainly hid it well. Ferrer didnīt need to do anything special, Lopez was just bad.

Re: St. Petersburg F: Huey/Kontinen def. Knowle/Peya 7-5 6-3

I think itīs 4th (Zagreb, Marseille, Barcelona, St. Petersburg). Probably good for his confidence, after Barcelona he hasnīt really performed that well. Will be interesting to see if Huey/Kontinen...

Re: Roger Federer is 0-7 against Nadal and Djokovic in slam finals since 2008

No, they are 0-Slam wonders.

It is a pretty depressing statistic for Federer. You have to give some credit to him for making it to the finals at his age. But considering his level of play and the...

Re: We've heard about SABR, but what are the strategic keys on the Djokovic side?

Sufficient depth in his groundstrokes to avoid Federer attacking. This is obvious, but vital, since Federer seems to be more keen than ever to attack any short ball. The longer the rallies are, the...

Re: If servebots are the problem, bring back the no jump rule in the serve

In an era of slow courts and baseliners, I donīt see how anyone can think servebots are the problem. I recommend watching some 1990īs footage from youtube, maybe some Wimbledon -match with Stich,...

Re: Analysis of Federer's return strategy (SABR)

Anyone who labels this as pushing strictly because of the mechanics of the shot, has completely failed to grasp the whole concept of pushing.

Re: Djokovic celebration in endless loop

Well he looked pretty aggressive doing it, to me it looked like he thought he wasnīt getting the support he felt he deserved. Which is a pretty arrogant attitude.

Re: Analysis of Federer's return strategy (SABR)

Interesting article, but it seems people are over-analysing the whole thing. Itīs not really a tactic, it is not something Federer relies on, and itīs not something he can do constantly. Itīs more of...

Re: Djokovic celebration in endless loop

He is desperatley trying to be popular. And yet he does something like this to alienate the crowd. Not a smart thing to do. Should he make it to the final and face Federer, the whole crowd would be...

Re: Putting Top Players Against Mugs on Centre Court Hurts Tennis

Re: Serious Discussion:What adjs/tweaks Nadal needs to make stem the rate of his decl

The absolute no 1 thing he needs to focus on is the depth of his shots. Fognini played good tennis, but Nadalīs groundstrokes land so short nowadays that players are constantly able to attack them....

Re: Becker slagging Federer

Becker is making a fool of himself. First of all, Federeīs tactic requires skill, it is not against the rules, and it works. There is nothing wrong about it. Becker should focus on how Djokovic can...

Re: What has Dani Vallverdu done for Berdych?

Nothing much, really. Berdych has always been able to lose early, or go relatively deep in any tournament. In that sense, nothing has changed. He isnīt any closer to winning anything significant.

Re: Winston-Salem SF: (Q) Herbert def. (13) Johnson 3-6 7-6(5) 6-2

Well it did look like there was way more underspin than he anticipated. Still, a bad shot nevertheless.

Re: Federer's new service box return strategy?

Itīs absolutely brilliant! Itīs great to see someone trying something unconventional and new, this is what tennis used to be about, until it became the boring baseline-game that it is today. Federer...

Re: Karlovic's career if he had a two-handed BH

His game is based on keeping points short and getting to the net, where his height is most useful. SLice helps him approach the net, and it helps him to stay in rallies, because his movement is...

Re: Harrison's antics should be treated as severely as Kyrgios'

Thatīs the problem right there. Kyrgios is a jerk, thereīs no way around that. Tomic too. But it seems like Kokkinakis is now getting the same reputation just for being Australian. It seems like...
