    Raonic's girlfriend lays the smackdown on Fognini

    It's one thing to say pro athletes should be fitter than Raonic currently seems to be, quite another to say he's fat AF cuz he'd eaten an "elephant." The former is simply advising prudence for a specific profession, whereas the latter is exploiting a tired stereotype for easy lolz that continues...

    Vekic and Errani breach protocol

    Deliberate flouting of protocol is one thing, but this was a clearly honest mistake on Errani's part. You may wanna find better examples if you're that eager to get the USO and the rest of the tour to be cancelled.

    The Wimby 08 Tiebreak

    You really are an illiterate toddler, not to mention a comically bad liar. Grow up and learn to read if you want to be taken even remotely seriously. Or stop wasting anyone's time.

    The Wimby 08 Tiebreak

    LOL, you really couldn't make a bigger fool of yourself if you tried. Let's see: - I said Data was a tennis wiz. In the real world but apparently not your own tennis and IT are rather separate endeavors. - You clearly have no clue what the old-timers used to mean by "slice," which is precisely...

    The Wimby 08 Tiebreak

    This hyping of more recent Wimbledon classics as the best ever reminds me of this one time I was discussing Rafa's best '08 matches with an old friend who's one of the rare VB members that know their tennis (yes they do exist). I nominated his demolition of Murray in the Wimby SF, to which he...

    The Wimby 08 Tiebreak

    I don't get the post hoc demoting of this TB. Pretty much anyone would whiff a fair amount under such pressure (which BTW is the same reason why the knock against the '01 Wimby final for not having produced the cleanest tennis is misguided), and taking the counter logic to its extreme one would...

    Outrageous Baseball Rule Change. R.I.P. Baseball Tradition.

    No lumping, I know where you stand. Just pointing out the pathetic agenda of these perpetual bitter-enders who still have trouble accepting that we're no longer living in the 20th century.

    Girlfriend photos send Boris Becker’s estranged wife into Instagram rage

    This "Instagram rage" sounds to me like a mother trying to protect her son from ill-advised physical contact during this pandemic. Of course there's some jealousy involved too, but that's to be expected from almost any ex. Typical NYP/Sun garbage. P.S. Boris remains my 1st tennis hero, but his...

    US Open Men's Singles entry list

    I almost wish Novak had already won this thing if only to see the agenda of the usual suspects even further exposed. Rafa's and to a lesser extent Stan's withdrawals are indeed big blows, but the men's draw still seems pretty decent to me under the circumstances and this disingenuous downgrading...

    Outrageous Baseball Rule Change. R.I.P. Baseball Tradition.

    Now here's a toughie: our dear Raul and his fellow reactionaries are slamming this temporary fix because they care about "the essence of the game" or they're just looking for another imagined microaggression to whine about. I'm sure those culture warriors at Breitbart have more to say about that!

    Who is a better server Roddick or Kyriogs?

    That's the extra gear I'm talking about. I still think Goran, Ivo and several other guys could be more dangerous on a given day, but who would you back in a Slam final against ATGs/GOATs where your nerves are running high and you need more than sheer pace or spin to throw your opponents off...

    Who is a better server Roddick or Kyriogs?

    Dat 2. 56.0% vs. 53.0%, which is a pretty sizable margin esp for 2nd-serve pts won. But then Pete stands at a mere 52.6%, which even after accounting for the double counting of DFs would fall short of A-Rod's 56%. One would have to be a complete ignoramus to think that # is an accurate snapshot...

    Who is a better server Roddick or Kyriogs?

    Exactly. A-Rod had a 37-73 career H2H against the top 10 while Nick's stands at 21-35, which means the Yank played double the # of matches against top opposition. And it matters not only whom you play but where/when you play 'em, cuz unless your last name happens to be Sampras your hold % will...

    French Open cancelled?

    No organization can guarantee 100% observance of any policy, and those knuckleheads that went out clubbing would've posed the same risks to the public in any case. The key is to penalize them to the extent others would think twice about going rogue.
