Hopefully Murray recovers but missing RG would not be too bad for him and his chances to win Wimbledon. Therefore, I hope he plays RG .

You have to wonder reading some of Groove's posts how he even came to support the fake Spartan.

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This kinda sucks for fed bc had murray not withdrawn (most likely) then fed may have gone into murrays half which would almost have been a ticket to the finals with a chance of having to play nole who may have been dead and vulnerable after a 5 hour battle with nadull.
What you're saying is not true of Roland Garros... It has been a pattern for the USO, AO and Wimbledon...But Roland Garros has always had random draws... In all the years where Novak was always drawn in Roger's half in the English speaking slams (12 times out of 12), Novak was drawn twice in Rafa's half and twice in Roger's half in Roland Garros. That's 50-50.

There's absolutely no evidence to suggest that the French rig their draws.

I know I've said this before, but people keep putting RG in the same bag with all the other slams in spite of the stark contrast in their draws: it's not fair.

Not everyone can win tournaments on 1 leg like Rafole. Some people play awful with serious injuries, who'd have thought?

No, but slam finals that are on the players' best surface do not count, remember?

People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.

nadal is on a class of his own when it comes to playing and winning tournaments while carrying an injury. Too good.

Djokovic is miles away in that department.

What a choke artist this Granollers Up a double break in the 2nd, then serving for the match and choking all this away with that lame doubles serve/volley approach Epic clowning from Mandy as well.
And a total of 8 breaks out of 12 games in the 2nd set. There were even more mini-breaks than holds in the tie-break. Never seen anything like that at all, even on a Simon match
