    The TT Football Club

    Hey Ross, fellow spurs fan here. I was screaming like a baby when that goal went in and i was urging us forward to try and take all 3 points like Everton did to us last year. By all accounts we dominated possession and had 3 times many more shots than united so we at least deserved a draw...

    Will Murray suffer another dip in form after his recent loss.

    As some of you are aware Murray fell of the mountain after his AO final loss to Federer earlier this year. Some say it was due to injury, some say it was mental and others say it was depression. Whatever, the reason, it was clear that Murray had lost the winning feeling and was losing matches...

    Is Uncle Toni one the best tactical coach's

    Many thanks to all contributors to this thread. I hope you all found it balanced and objective. I have been following Team Rafa for some time and have been impressed at how many times, Rafa is able to implement the strategical changes which are undoubtedly coming from his uncle into a winning...

    Is Uncle Toni one the best tactical coach's

    Rafa's uncle and coach Toni does not get enough credit but what he has achieved with Rafa is unbelievable. He guided Rafa to clay court dominance early on in Rafa's career. Then helped Rafa develop a solid grass court game. What ever Rafa's detractors say Rafa does change many aspects of his...

    R Federer vs. JM del Potro -- W.T.Final - RR

    I agree completely. When Fed won the 2nd set he shouted 'I am through', so he would have known most of the permuatations. Once it went 3 sets Delpo had to win by 6-3 or better and he did. The way Fed lost that 8th game was terrible. I think his fee should be deducted by that tanked game. LOL

    R Federer vs. JM del Potro -- W.T.Final - RR

    I saw the match and Fed tanked at 3-4 it was so obvious. On a serious note it just shows how the r/r can be abused. If this was Davydenko there would have been an ITF enquiry. But Federer decides to lose two sets that exactly allows Delpo through. That was a complete set up. It would be...

    Thoughts on watching Nadal live today at WTF.

    I was at the 02 arena today for the Nadal vs Soderling match for their round robin match. I had great seats for the match I was about 5 rows away from the court at level 1 row E for those in the know. I thought Robin looked razor sharp in the first set. He was cleaning the lines especially...

    Changing Federer's Destiny Terminator style.

    I am bored so please bear with me. If you could go back in time and destroy the Legend that is Federer ala Terminator when would you go back. And instead of terminating Federer you could influence the outcome of a match which you believe would hinder his chances of becoming part of the...

    WTF World Tour Finals Draw

    I agree with you. Nadal has always made the semifinals of TMC when he has played it. I don't see why that should be any different this time. Nadal has a winning record over Djokovic and Soderling and plays Davydenko tough most of the time. Rafa always steps up to the plate when he has to and...

    Who would have thought?

    My coach thinks that Nadal will either never win a slam again or come back stronger than before. My coach is in his 70's and was a former pro from the old Czechoslovakia. He feels that Nadal has lost his aura and will have to come back bigger than before otherwise he is toast everywhere. My...

    Who would have thought?

    Who would have thoght at the end of 2008 that Nadal would not win or make the final of either FO or Wimbledon? Who would have thought that Federer after losing the AO in 2009 would go on to win the FO and Wimbledon? Who would have thought Del Potro would have beaten Federer at the US Open...

    Do you think Federer will coach his daughters?

    Genetics are very complicated. Just because Federer and Mirka have good fundamentals in tennis does not mean that there children would become great tennis players. Forexample Agassi's and Graf's children may not have inherited the good genes from their parent's. They may have inherited the bad...

    Is the next generation of wta girls an insurance write off!

    It seems to me the young up and comers may be a bust at the highest level. When you look at the future of the wta it does not fill you with confidence. The 'it' girls like Azarenka, Radwansa, Wozniacki and Safina dont seem to me to have the pedigree of champions. Safina seems destined to...

    Del Potro: Rise of the Power Player.

    My thoughts on this win is with total astonishment. I went to bed after DP lost the 3rd set as I assumed that Fed would finish it off in 4. The 3rd set in these sort of matches is crucial and Fed appeared to have taken the wind out of DP's sails. Then I wake up some hours later to read that DP...

    No one defended their GS title this year?

    It has been noted by some observers that this year represents the year of change. Whether you accept that or not - there has been some changes in the tenis scene. Last year the grand slam champions for both men's and women's singles were as follows: AO Djokovic...
