querrey won two matches in a row, muger frauderer won a slam, amd berdych fluked his way to a slam semi final, so tennis was definitely on life support for a while

however, murray and djokovic have delivered the adrenaline which will kick start the heart of tennis

- Weak era stars Nadal and Grindovic crying and threatening to pull out of Madrid's beautiful blue clay court tournament
- Nadal vulturing the rest of the clay court season
- Rainfael halting the Nole slam with complaining and delays
- David overrated Nalbandian violently hurting refs
- Ball-bashing nobody with 2 career wins on grass makes a mockery of this weak era by beating former champ Nadal
- Wimbledon played on fake grass courts, Djokovic sick in the semis, allowing Indoorserer to serve bot and big nose his way to another fake grand slam
- Rainovic vulturing his way to the Toronto Masters
- Tiredovic allowing himself to get bagled by crippled old man/computer no. 1
- Muzz pushing his way to a grand slam in one of the most disgusting major finals of all time
- Top 8 outright quitting and tanking the end of the season

No, tennis has not won this year, not by a longshot.

If only Fairyrer had more luck, he'd be ever so cute. The world is full of unfair rules which prevented him from living the good life.
Why are there better top 5 opponents?
When will the Davis Cup event & Hawkeye challenge system get eradicated?
Why do Fairyrer's quiet insults to Slam conquerers get media attention?

It was a more interesting year than 2011, when Djokovic killed everyone. I like that there are 4 different slam winners, though I don't like that they are all from the top 4. As I've said before, I am done with the domination game by these guys, they should lose more often to make the tour more interesting.

I like Janowicz' run alot, I hope he not only goes on to win it, but also inspires other youngsters to join the rebellion.

So how has tennis fared this year?

Did tennis win when Murray won his first grand slam in US 2012 (answer = yes)?
Has Jerzy Janowicz saved tennis in Paris?
Did Nishikori beating Raonic save tennis?
Has tennis lost or gained by Nadal's injuries? Did Rosol save or lose tennis?
etc
1. A new slam winner was good for tennis. That it happened to be Murray was not good but oh well. 0,5p to tennis
2. Yes JJ has saved tennis in Paris. His playing style is a fresh breath of air to tennis. 1p to tennis
3. No Nishikori beating Raonic did nothing for tennis. But Nishi facing Raonic for a title was good for tennis. 0,5p to tennis
4. Yes what Rosol did was good for tennis. Nadal's injuries aren't good for tennis though. Much better when he plays and get roasted. 1p-1p=0p

3p to tennis total. But now comes the real test today.

Ferrer winning over JJ? 1p for new M1000 winner. -2p for vulturing. -1p for style

JJ winning: 1p for new M1000 winner, 5p for qualifier surprise victory, -2p for being hacker


So tennis either ends up with 1 point or 7 points. If JJ wins not even a shitty WTF can cause Tennis to lose. But if Ferrer wins and WTF goes bad well who knows, Tennis might end the year on minus. Then Bye better play good in 2013 to pay off the debts.

Everyone from the haters to the tards is in unison that Federer = tennis, so definitely tennis won overall this year.

Results alone cannot bring tennis back to the way it should be.

Tennis won when Roger took over the last meaningful Pete's record.

No, Nadal getting injured and Mugray winn-- I mean vulturing a Grand Slam is unforgivable.

Two big stains on 2012 in tennis.

Tennis lost big time with the absence of its brightest star for most of the year

What is Gasquet in the context of tennis?

The more important thing is the emergence of Janowicz, who will actually surpass that french clown, and many others, very quickly.
