Maria used to be a cow on clay, but in the last two years it's become her best surface, even winning RG in 2012 - and she has a very good chance of defending it this year.

I don't see why Andy can't get better, his potential is way too good not to win a RG.

Because his forehand is worse than Wozniacki's.

Lol. Clowing again.


Was Nadal not in the draw last year?

Yes. despite that Murray was just a couple of sets from winning the whole thing and possibly would have had the majority of the match not been played indoors.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

This is the truth, there is no need to debate the issue any further.

All of this.

But particularly the first part.
