    i admit i haven't tried this lately ..... i think i did try it a couple years ago and had a devil of a time even so much as loading a page ..... i'm hoping somebody else will give it a try and report to us their success (or lack of same)

    anybody? :-|

    You mean when he beat Berdych being 17 it doesn't count? I admit, this has to stop.

    I'm saying you're drawing conclusions from data that is too sparse. I would still make Berdych favourite.

    I must go watch the final on Sunday. All you really need is a ground pass and you can basically swipe any seat you want. Or perhaps be at the standing room and have a beer.

    For this sort of information go the atp site, and click on Players, then search a player. Then you will find a box where you can compare him with another player.

    even better, this one, tennisexplorer http://www.tennisexplorer.com/mutual/berdych/dimitrov-779bc/
    because they also considere matches played on challengers and futures events.
    Of course not relevant when you are comparing Nadal with Federer, but for lower ranked players it's good

    And Verdasco/Almagro today, i won't be surprised if Almagro lose this one, didn't impress me at all yesterday.

    After playing around a bit, Peakitrov takes the first. 6-3.

    I'm nervous. Is anyone else nervous? I am. Tennis!

    GSM Grigor, 3&2. Good result against another clay court specialist.

    I do and what I saw was horrible, especially from Verdasco, dfs and errors a plenty. If he wasn't such a bottler he would still be top 10.

    I don't care what anyone says, beating Monaco comprehensively on clay is a good result. Well done Grisha!

    FeVer had so much gel on his hair it didn't move at all.

    Good win from him.

    Definitely a huge chance for Prime Time to get his first title here. Verdasco will be a big test tomorrow, though. Might just trial TennisTV especially for that :)

    Pretty rare to see the three top seeds go out on a QF day. All nice wins but De Bakker surprises me more than PseudoFed. He had great juniors results, climbed a bit in the ATP rankings and then crashed big time until the end of '12. This win could make for a lot more mental strength and confidence.

    No letdown vs Berlocq tomorrow!

    Just wanted to point out that it was Oscar Wilde who said: "I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisifed with the best." :)

    Verdasco in straight sets for me.

    Dimitrov is so over rated.
