    Pretty Good Site!!

    There used to be frequent match reports earlier on the site but i guess it is tough for a single person to keep updating all the pages on a regular basis. Apart from the match reports there were also some fun stuff like prediction contests for grand slams and other tournaments. bg

    Current ELO Ratings

    True, but very difficult for a 'normal' tennis fan to understand. who would bother about ratios and multiplication factors when a simple 100, 70, 45, 25 etc points system is much easier to understand. Guess ATP is more worried about tennis popularity than effectiveness bg

    BEST ASIAN Tennis player in history of tennis?

    If it is talk about singles, I think i would like to recommend Ramesh Krishnan. Magician with great touch and drove Mcenroe crazy (i think in some Australian Open). IIRC, Mcenroe complained to the umpire that it should be illegal to serve SO slow. bg

    Doubt regarding ranking points in 2009

    Why not make one of the slams on carpet?

    How about this ... Move AO to november, a couple of weeks after Paris Masters. I suppose it will be spring in Australia so weather might be OK. Of course make the surface carpet. so this will reduce pull-outs from Madrid and Paris. Move YEC and Davis Cup to December. So starting with...

    Federer withdraws from Tokyo

    At this rate he will most probably pull out of Basel too. Maybe he will finally give Paris a shot. From Federers POV, both Paris and Basel need 5 matches. so why not play the event that will give more money as well as resting period after Madrid. bg

    Federer withdraws from Tokyo

    The reason being fatigue. Either he is getting old very rapidly or the Japanese havent offered him enough appearance money. Anyway Nadal has a chance to overtake Federer now. Maybe Federere did this to make things interesting at the TMC ;) bg
