he was actually scheduled on Center but got moved due to the rain, and that was the first thing I thought of when I saw the schedule last night. An Isner comment like "They put me on Center in Canada but they don't do some in my home country" :lol:
Now it's probably "The rain hates me, didn't want me on Center"
Way to go Ivan! I think I might be the only one in FITD that picked him over Isner. Saw Ivan practice with Istomin on Saturday and he looked pretty good considering he hasn't played since RG. So what, the heck decided to take a flyer on him. And like emotion pointed out above, you don't have to do much to beat Isner lately.
PS: Also picked Dodig to make the QF .. so no early congrats; maybe I'm just crazy ;-).
This is why comparing Isner to Raonic makes no sense. Isner doesn't even come close to comparing to Raonic off the ground and his net game is terrible. Just look at how he got broken. He looked totally uncomfortable up at net. Milos expects his serves to come back. Isner always seems to be hoping that they don't. And he has never worked on his ROS since he came onto the scene in 2007.
Isner seems to have a serious crisis in confidence right now, two bad losses during the time of year he is supposed to excel and get himself some ranking points. Dodig hadn't played a match since the French and hadn't won a match in months, this was a great victory for him and hopefully will help him back to top 40 level soon. His serving was good and he was clutch.
Isner is a joke right now, don;t know why since he got his American 250 vulture title His ranking is in for a world of hurt if he doesn't get it together, though I know some Nadulltards would like that fans of the game should appreciate having a guy who actually steps up and takes it to the top guys (something Raodick doesn't do).
We will continue to simulate the season with the clay ATP250s in Stuttgart and s-Hertogenbosch. The draw for the events will be completely randomized. Qualifiers are randomized as well and the WCs will be chosen by me, if not there aren't enough requests.
ALL-NEW - MTFers may now request...
With all of the free time, I have created some tennis trivia questions. I think they are fairly difficult, although I may be proven wrong by some of the trivia experts on MTF. If you answer the question correctly, you can pick the next topic.
Note: Only main draw ATP matches (including Grand...
I don't know why it took until COVID for RG to finally release their best matches.
This is one of THE Classic Nadal vs. Djokovic matches. Prime , quick and Servebot Nadal, plus peak forehand and good backhand.
Also one could see how motivated Djokovic was in this match, he had a game plan and...
Only Borg (x3), Dal (x2), Rogie (x1) and Rod Laver (x1) did it. Borg and Laver are the most impressive since the transition was from grass to clay, instead of a mere change in color (e.g. green to red).
Hello! A few friends and I decided it would be fun and extremely helpful to analyze your tennis videos. After playing tennis for many years - with trips to IMG during the summer - and having taught at various levels in person (beginner, intermediate, advanced), we would love to share all the...
