    again, why bring facts into the discussion. That is not welcomed here at all....

    Frustrating match against pusher

    so you are saying that to beat a consistent player that does not really hit with much pace but plays smart tennis you need to be multiple times high school state champion, and be good enough to be on a fairly decent D1 school roster. I can agree with that.....

    Stanford Men

    Of course he has no chance of making a living as a pro. Just like 99.7% of college players. Which is why he went to Stanford, to get degree/connections so he can make a living doing something else. When you think about it it was really a smart decision.

    Sticky request: Tennis video clips and matches

    OMG, I watched that match in person. Rain saved Ivanisevic, and he gutted out the win. He woke up with a stiff neck next day and retired against Agassi. I seem to recall they helicoptered in Courier so he could play exhibition style match against Agassi since Ivanisevic played only three...

    Broke MonoGut twice in one set. Done with this delicate junk.

    thank you for your explanation. You clearly have vast understanding of ball vs. string bed contact phenomena.

    so the strings in the center do not go through a grommet? I'm still confused. Do elaborate please.....

    All I remember from this post is: but, fortunate, should have, and almost :) All good, just joking. That's why they play matches. As of today though USC is the team to beat.

    Worst Tennis Etiquette EVER

    There are really actual players that defend OP here and think that it is OP's opponent that is an a***********?? Let's recap: 1. OP makes a very questionable call, gets called on it, and reverses his call. Never seen anyone reverse a call one is 100% sure of. Safe to say the ball was indeed...

    Broke MonoGut twice in one set. Done with this delicate junk.

    Is that because the string somehow knows it is not strung in the center, and it just snaps when the ball hits such not-center string?

    well, if you can win 4 matches, without your arguably best player, on the surface that you are not really that accustomed to - you deserve all the hype you can get. And you are a bit better than lucky...... :)

    so the Holt argument. it is absolutely not a given that Cukierman is a better player than Holt and therefore he should be playing #1 for USC. You can really argue either way. Last season Brandon went 16-3 playing #1, while Cukierman went 15-6 at #2. Holt beat Ondrej Styler fairly convincingly...

    I think it was actually 5 straight points for USC. From 2:5 to 7:5. Go Trojans!

    They need to figure out how to have the final match on Sunday. There's 11.50am and there's 20 people here including food vendors and folks from cracked racquets that provide the commentary.....

    while all of that is true the other point of view is: USC still beat a Michigan team that is playing out of its mind and already won over #4 and #7 ranked teams, with its #1 player, and easily top 5 player in the country clearly not healthy enough to be on court, and with #2 player playing under...
