I think the conditions will hamstring Tsonga too much, but a grueling 3 hour victory for Nadal will be a hollow victory. If he has bad knees, I want to see him make allowances for it.

On the evidence of his taking 2 hours to beat Nishikori yesterday, I don't see this being a quick victory Ben. Though I could be wrong.

its the left knee. i say go for the win if the knee feels better and rest of the game comes together a little.

and of course the risk is far too great to fight on for 3 hours if the knee is in pain. he is about to face the single most important clay season of his career. it would be better to make a tactical exit and let tsonga have his win if the knee issue is severe enough.

they are all closing in on him and he has not won a title in 11 months so he has to make sure he arrives in monte carlo fresh, fit, and ready.

miami is not important now.

He stuck to his task well, I agree. But Tipsarevic will count that as a huge missed opportunity Samson.

Default Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.47

if the knee does not feel right then here is the plan:

1. stay in control of the center of the court. do not run around your backhand today. this will save him a lot of running trying to cover the open court. no harm today in missing backhands today. you want to get off the damn court and go home to rest that knee.

2. take a few more chances on the 2nd serve.

3. go for the DTL forehand at will even if you are missing

4. try some serve n volley

so if it works, you have an easy win. and if it does not then that is ok as well since you are trying to get off the court.

now that is what i would do if i have a bad knee and this clay season is approaching so rapidly.

a 3 hour win would be disasterous with a bum knee as Ben has pointed out.

Early skirmishes should be interesting then. Let's see if Tsonga has the wit to move him around the court as much as he possibly can. It may be better for him in the long run, but I can't see that happening unless he something like a set and a break down. And maybe not even then. Tomorrow will tell the tale.

have you heard of this guy ann? they said yesterday on the tele that he has now become the 4th most marketable personality on the planet. this may play right into his hands if he has political aspirations after football. florida governorship is there for the taking if he ever wanted it.

Although I don't follow American football, I have. He's just been traded I believe Samson.

affirmative. this is why they all want to play team sports here in the states. kids want to play football, baseball, and of course basketball. they want to be on teams and they want to be on television. playing football at the big universities gets you on national television nearly every week during the football season.

you could never get 100,000 people to come watch you play tennis but if you are a football star here at some of the big schools, that becomes a reality during the football season. it is not possible in tennis anyway. you could never see the tennis ball sitting high in a giant football stadium. you would be too far removed from the action.

there are mega bucks to be made in these sports if you make it to the professional level.

out of the 1500 ranked tennis pros, only the top 200 make any money with the top 5 making staggering sums when you count their endorsements. rest of the players nearly starve to death.

not so in team sports. they are making millions. average salary in baseball is around $2.5 million or better for instance.
