    Djokovic another surgery news

    I am fully aware of what arthroscopy is and that it can be used for investigation or treatment. Yes Nadal did undergo arthroscopy in order to remove loose bone fragments. Djokovic himself said he had a small medical intervention, medical not surgical. I have not read anywhere of the actual...

    Djokovic another surgery news

    I only suggested that the minor medical intervention in 2018 could have been as simple as a cortisone injection because there seemed to be very little information about what he had undergone. Where did you read about the mesh? Available information at the time seemed very vague and...

    Djokovic another surgery news

    Everyone talks about Djokovic having to undergo another surgery as though he had undergone a major procedure. He actually agreed to and had a minor medical intervention. He made this statement via his Instagram account. Medical intervention does not imply a surgical procedure, it could...

    Roof at Roland-Garros next year...

    Nadal and Djokovic have played to my knowledge, one match on clay, under a roof. Hamburg 2008, the result determined the number two ranking position. Nadal won 7-5, 2-6, 6-2.

    WTF should not be worth any ATP points.

    That is exactly what diminishes it as a tournament. It is not representative of the tour in general. I thought that the WTF's were I tended to be the culmination of and representation of the world tour as a whole.

    Kyrgios won't give up

    It was 3am. and very humid because the locker rooms were a good distance away Nadal changed in an unlit tunnel off the court, to save time. On returning to the court he realized that he had accidentally put his shorts on the wrong way round. He asked if he could quickly go and change, Bernardes...

    Kyrgios won't give up

    It's a total misrepresentation of what happened. The Kyrgios side is maybe as shown, I can't say because I didn't watch. The Nadal side not correct. I have just watched a replay, several times and I am absolutely sure of what happened. Nadal and Medvedev had just played an amazing 32 shot...

    Fergus Murphy should be suspended.

    I agree. Who could know what Kyrgios is serious about, he certainly seems to have an obsession.with Nadal. As for the fine, I don't think paying a fine will have any effect on the behaviour of Kyrgios. He is a millionaire, thanks to tennis which he says he doesn't enjoy.$113k is small change to...

    Fergus Murphy should be suspended.

    I wrote this in reply to someone way back in April, 2014, I accept that there is a time rule, but I cannot accept that it is fairly imlemented. When does the timing start? Is it when the ball is dead or when the umpire calls the point? There is quite a lot of discrepancy between the two. How...

    Nadal gets a bye to finals

    Did it make a joke of the result when Djokovic won the WTF's due to Federer giving him a WO. Nadal still has to play a final match. Nadal isn't the first to receive a WO and I doubt he will be the last.

    Rigged draw or just bad luck? Dimitrov v Wawrinka to play eachother in the 1R for the 4th time in a year.

    I was fully aware of Neil Harman's history when I posted those quotes. Whilst his actions regarding the plagiarism were deplorable I really don't think they have any significance in relation to the the tweets about the draw. Those tweets and the responses from other journalists were made as the...

    Rigged draw or just bad luck? Dimitrov v Wawrinka to play eachother in the 1R for the 4th time in a year.

    I do remember reading this some years ago, it was about the US Open draw. QUOTE, Neil Harman ‏@NeilHarmanTimes Neil Harman ‏@NeilHarmanTimes There is something frankly not right about being handed a full draw sheet as you walk into the room where the draw is about to take place Andrew Jerell...
