Finally a thread of my liking!

Why are the 4 biggest tournaments called 'grand slams'? What does that even mean? 'A grand slam tournament'. It sounds nonsensical.

AFAIK the four big tournaments are actually called the majors, as in major tournaments. The grand slam is winning all four in a calendar year. Somehow people got used to calling each major a grand slam. The actual term 'grand slam' originated from the card game - bridge. The winning of all the tricks during the play of one hand is called a grand slam. The term was brought from the card table to sports by a sports reporter when it was used to refer to Budge in 1938. Budge was the first player to win all the major singles tennis competitions in one season and it was widely reported as his 'grand slam'.

Default Watch past Davis Cup Match (Switzerland vs Czech Republic)?

Hello,

Does anyone know where I can watch past Davis Cup matches. The one I want to see is the the 7 hour doubles match between Switzerland and Czech Republic from February 2nd. Specifically, I want to re-watch the last set.

Are there any places where I can watch this? I would gladly pay for access to this past tennis match. I really want to see the whole last set, not just the highlights. Perhaps it is not online yet, but will come online? In that case, where?

The reason I ask is because I was ballgirl during this last set. It was really a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience and I really want to see the match somewhere and possibly save it as it's an experience that I'll want to remember for the rest of my life.

Any help on where I can find this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

Does the Rolex clock at ATP website show wrong for some cities for you? It shows Rotterdam correctly for me but it shows San Jose is 12:56. Shouldn't it be 10:56?

Default I feel really stupid but I have to ask.

Am I the only one who thought that Nicolas Massu had retired like a decade ago?

The guy never stopped playing challengers and just played the VTR Open.

Am I THAT Clueless?

Honestly, asking this kind of question in GM? You do know what douchebags post here, mate? Prepare to get insulted.

On topic, well I understand why you thought he was retired. No biggie imo.

Similar stuff happens to me all the time. I just choose not to create a thread on GM about it because I would rather not be insulted or have my ego hurt. no need to feel bad about this.

It's okay to feel stupid, but we have a thread for that (see S.Q.T. thread in the sticky threads)

maybe a little bit dumb. people talk about Massu enough to know that he's still AROUND, ironically I find every now and then it's pretty common for people to bring up "Massu is still playing but why!?" because he preforms in so few tournaments and at such mediocre standards

if you have become more casual with keeping up with tennis it makes sense to have think he retired though. he might as well have if considering his results

You're surprised a guy with the nickname "Vampiro" is still around? He's gonna be around forever.
