    How difficult to win 6:0 6:0?

    Last season I won an ALTA doubles match at A7 Line 4 6-0 6-0. Halfway through the second set my opponents’ team was cheering for us to win 6-0 just to give their teammates a hard time. The best that I have done in USTA 4.0 singles was win a match this season 6-1 6-1. It's so hard to double...

    Why does everyone say Murray is retiring?

    People have been discussing Nadal’s knees for years, this Murray hip injury is far more serious. He is only 31 but basically needs a hip replacement, which you really don’t want to have until you are 60 since they are only meant to last 20 years. He can’t even do daily tasks without feeling pain...
