Do I think you devalue the board with baseless comments that can't be backed up with anything concrete. More information for you, why is it Ok for other players not to do well on clay and yet have good rankings?

Corretja, if you did a search has won indoor events, a TMC and a TMS on hardcourt, so don't give me this rubbish about him not doing anything off clay.

Should you be frined, because you have an outdated, ethnocentric view of the game with this crap about Wimbledon being the best Slam, it's crap, not everyone thinks that or should think that. It's different for different people, not better, just different due to other factors that you can't comprehend.

It's not a question of being cliquey, stick to the old word where it was just players from the US and Australia dominating tennis, then everything will be fine.
