lol...... oh boy here we go.
Classy maybe but Federer is going to stroll to the title. The only guy other than Nadal that could beat him was Berdych.
Not sure if Federer wants to play all week. He may "let up" in the semis so he can rest his back for WO.
It's a crying shame that Halle is only a 250 so it doesn't get shown in my country, and i just can't get livestreams to actually show some motion. I have to suffer Aegon.
When was the last time all the semi finalists used a one-hand backhand?
not sure, but that was the first question that sprung to my mind
They usually show the finals but it's UEFA this year, so..
More like some of the most mediocre and inconsistent performers in recent times apart from fed.
Isn't "most classy" code for shbh?
My guess is BC...before Connors!
How about "Most Classy ATP Tournament" - period/full stop... Linespeople suited up, the respectful quiet tones of the German patrons... It makes Monte Carlo feel like the USO
LOL, was the omission of Haas intentional?
Take a close look, you won't witness such view in a long long time...
Did they show the Halle final last year, I never knew they showed only the final of an event they aren't showing fully.
Which channel was that on? Hopefully not TenSports, i just had that package removed.
^ Not sure how long back you'll have to go for an event with all four one-handers. We used to have a great thread on the One handed backhand, which got moved to O&E and then died out there. We used to often post about how many SHBH's there were in the last 16 or 8 and sometimes were did have quite a few: Fed, Lube, Feli, Gasky,...
I'd really like someone to make a gif of Youzhny hitting his head with his racket, so i can post it in this thread w.r.t. classy
Classiest way to draw blood, no?
I wonder who'll be the last man standing in this all class encounter.
I'll go with sexy class golden eagle of victory.
Yes. Doesn't matter who stroll to the title, classy is classy.
Another way of asking is, when was the last time all the semi finalists were classy?
He would not "grind" to get a win that's for sure. Either way it shouldn't be too hard on his back.
What does that say about Nadal who was completely out-classed by one of the mediocre and inconsistent performers.
Quite right sir!
Yes. Classy nest of the golden eagle of victory.
A quick Google search yields the following info from another forum:
the average tennis fan doesn't even know this tournament exists.
True. In that case, that last prominent tournamnet with 4 1 H-B (gleaned from the same source) would have had to be Wimbledon 1997:
How interesting another grass court tournament. Looks like there might be a correlation between grass and class.
I do like the intimate feel of the court in this tourney. Fans look fairly close to the action.
Yes. It was an actual "mens" semi-final with all the 1hbh on display.
What time does the final start.
After 1 PM in Halle,Germany.
That would be 7 AM on the east coast of the US.
Also, four 1HBH semifinalists:
1977 French Open: Vilas, Gottfried, Dent, Ramirez
1983 Wimbledon: McEnroe, Lewis, Curren, Lendl
1987 Australian Open: Edberg, Cash, Lendl, Masur
1989 Wimbledon: Becker, Edberg, Lendl, McEnroe
'89 wimby was stacked
Hey, I've got one handed backhand...so I'm talented, classy and have a beautiful game. Nice.
I poast single-fingered! How about you?
I knew it, all 1 handed back hand.
It was clearly more classy than the Queen's final.....
Nailed it, Cesc!
1HBH rocks !
We all know Cesc's predictions on this board never fail.
