is it even a question?? Junior Grand slam champion up against college player and teaching pro! lol!!

DolgoSantoro 11-16-2012 08:09 PM

Peliwo obviously. I doubt Tonlars would disagree.

Doesn't matter much, few people on this forum would be any kind of a threat to either of then even if they were having a terrible day.

I know right? Clearly the teaching pro.

They can play a match to decide. I'll be the chair umpire

Razoredge 11-16-2012 09:47 PM

I hear Peliwo's serve is even bigger than Raonic, is that true?

I don't have a source but I heard the same thing. Just after hearing he could generate more rpm on his forehand than Nadal.

Nadal would lose in a tight three setter to Filip Peliwo.

Only on clay though, it wouldn't be a contest on the other surfaces.

True, but TonLars faced tough competition on the college circuit, while fpeliwo had it relatively easy. True, he won Wimbledon and USOpen in the juniors, but it could have been a different story if he played in the earlier stronger jr era and had to face prime Andrey Kuznetsov on grass or in-form Berankis on hardcourts.

axel89 11-18-2012 04:09 AM

actually tony lars has a high chance of beating peliwo he has tony has beaten ranked 300's in the world and fp is 400 or so

TonLars 11-21-2012 08:09 PM

Hey all! Yeah Filip is definitely better, and he is going to continue to improve and be alot better than I am. Right now if im playing well we could have a competitive match, but he would win at least 8 out of 10 times Id think. Ive beaten several ranked players up to about current top 600 and some former top 300 and better, but I think Filip has a pretty high ceiling of course to far surpass that. We nearly faced each other in Winnipeg Futures, but I lost that 4 hour match 1st round where I played a little shaky, and Filip beat that guy in the second round in straight sets pretty convincingly. I didnt see the match unfortunately, but I believe most days I would have beaten the guy I lost to.

Filip is a great player and I wish him good luck, seems like a good guy too. Im still improving and I will definitely be better 2 years from now than I am currently, barring injury. If i play a few futures this year I like my chances at picking up a point, Ive been close.

Sow Bed.... this is Sou Bead...

Devilito 11-22-2012 12:39 PM

they'd have a close match right now. I played Wett and Filip just lost to him so it gives me a good idea of his level atm. Just like Tony said though, Filip will improve at a high rate in the next year or so being on tour full time.

Jolly is the greatest.

Followed by LeeD.

marpiw 11-22-2012 02:14 PM

Stupid Thread...it Seems That My Fellow Forum Members Have Nothing To Do And They Create Those Science Fiction Players...you Have Nothing To Say About The Real Ones?????

JoelDali 11-22-2012 03:18 PM

Toni would crush LeeD.

Absolute crushing. Lethal.

Epic.

5.5 VS 4.0

No chance for Lee.
