More matches are on offer, therefore there are going to be more threads, that isn't hard to work out.

I've moderated on forums before, so it's not like I have no experience with this. Other forums deal with live match discussion very easily. Look at TW, for example. The most active live discussion threads you'll find at any one time is around 4. Why? Well, people are only interested in certain matches. Only certain matches are televised. There are only so many matches going on at one time. We're not talking 30-60 matches being played at once, even if it was remotely possble that there would be that many threads in GM.
The server is fucking cheap and not going to get any better. So why is it impossible for you to use the respective tournament forum? There have to be some valid reasons for it. There are a lot more than 4 mens matches going on at a Slam at the same time barring rain in the first 2 rounds.

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
