    The saddest (insert your favorite player) loss and why...

    1991 Wimbledon final: Graf bt Sabatini. So close to winning a second slam and finally reaching the number one. I've never recovered from that one and I'm still unable to watch the match. :(

    What do you mean by "Friend of the AO"? Why a lot of pr? More than usual?

    Lol. I was going to post almost exactly the same comment. :) Seriously, it's out of this world. Can't he get a break? :evil:

    Top5 players with best English

    Not exactly. Slaves are more gifted because of their mother tongue, this is the main factor. Look for Alfred Tomatis' works and you will understand. Their mother tongue makes it pretty easy for them to learn foreign languages, it's not as easy for people who speak a germanic language, and it's...

    Uncle Toni speaks out against new female DC captain.

    I quite agree with Toni's comments despite being a woman. I understand how it can be seen as "sexist comment", but I also think it could be a strange situation. On the other hand, maybe the fact that this woman doesn't know the players could help. Former players like Moya or Corretja know the...

    You shouldn't dream about that. It's not an objective for me because it's not realistic at all. I've never thought it was. And certainly not now because Rafa's physical decline is scary. He has a lot of mileage, much more than what you would expect from a 28-year old player. And it shows.

    Djokovic's draw.

    Yes, I think that we'll all agree on that. He came through beautifully and won the tournament . Congrats Nole.

    Today's tennis is just sickening....

    I have to agree with your last sentence. I watched some parts of the match, and I was really impressed by Venus Williams. I'm not a fan of hers at all, but I thought "too bad, she may have just lost to the future winner of this Wimbledon". She was better than Kvitova in that match IMO. I've not...

    I think that we should leave Steve Darcis out of this. I think that they were 127 players in the draw who would have had a good chance to beat Rafa that day because the 128th (Rafa himself) was not ready to play at all. I think that his knees were hurting (remember that he played all the year...

    First thing, nobody chooses the draw. It's pure luck. After that, nobody likes playing against these servebots, Federer included. And he has also lost a few matches against them. It's a lottery, and everyone knows that. But for Rafa, it's a nightmare. It has always been and it will always be...

    Today's tennis is just sickening....

    Yes, I like it much more than the complete ballbashing of today's final, even if Kvitova was clearly impressive. But where is the attacking game that you are supposed to cherish in that video? Navratilova would have been a much better example than Evert and Austin.

    Nadal's level on grass has declined, i think that most people will agree with that. His movement has declined significantly and, in the absence of a big serve, it's fatal. But it's not because of the match against Kyrgios that you can say that. You can't draw many conclusions about Nadal's level...

    Maybe because their game is different :). I know that all the players have to deal with them, but you have to admit that Nadal has collected them recently. Look, he would still have faced Raonic in the quarter finals if he had won. Nightmare!!! For him of course (we all know how much he hates...
