    Thoughts on Roberto Bautista Agut as a player?

    I like him since I discovered he supports LGBTQ and loves horses. He is very understated which is much better than Nadal's phallic pumping every time he wins a point.

    Nadal 10 Federer 3

    This match had huge symbolic significance. Because Nadal lost he remains clay goat. Had he won the arguments would have started about how he's THE goat and he would still have had a chance to win another major. In terms of the legacy this match is actually more important for Roger than the...

    Double standards? Fognini fined just $3,000 for saying Wimbledon should be bombed while Kyrgios gets $8,000 in fines

    Fognini didn't say Wimbledon should be bombed. He just said Court 12 should be bombed.

    Nadal vs Kyrgios; tennis needs more of this

    Hw goes too far sometimes (often) but when he is like he was against Thompson yesterday I really enjoy watching him. It's just as likely that tomorrow he'll lose in 3 routine sets as that he'll light the place up and beat Nadal as he did all those years ago. I do think he cares about...

    Djokovic will win Wimbledon #5 in 2 weeks

    Of course Nole is the 'bookies favourite'. Many fans believed he would win RG (though I think the bookies stuck with Nadal, didn't they???) He was not playing particularly well in Paris, so if he is the favourite at Wimbledon it is because of 1) past history (i.e. 2018), 2) it would be very...

    The toughest draw of all time: Nadal at Wimbledon 2019

    This would be a tough draw if the 'tough' opponents weren't in the doldrums. Cilic? He's done nothing this year. Thiem has never been good on grass, but I think he may do better this year, but it won't be enough, Kyrgios will withdraw/tank/get disqualified, Shapovalov has been pathetic...

    Djokovic is "surprised" at Wimbledon seeding

    Nole is being subtly bitchy.

    Nadal is ahead of Federer in Slams adjusted by difficulty

    This is all childish and silly. Numbers don't tell the whole story. There is never a level playing field. Federer Nadal and Djokovic each play differently. Comparisons are in the end pointless and actually meaningless. There is no one greatest player in the whole history of the game...

    Wilander believes that RG is the most difficult major to win

    Wilander believes RG is the most difficult slam because he won it - 3 times, I believe?

    Federer skipped stuttgart

    That is correct. Wimbledon adjusts grass court seedings and Federer is an 8 ties champion. He has previously been seeded above his official ranking. Think he was even seeded 1 when he wasn't 1 in the rankings.

    Tsit stops server to change racquet

    I haven't really seen much of all this and I thought his racquet was broken. None of it matches Nadal's brilliant use of sudden injuries over the years to disrupt a winning opponent, e.g. against Petschner at Wimby in 2010. The German was winning the match 2 sets to 1 when Nadal discovered he...
