    Worst match you have ever seen your favorite play?

    Serena losing to Jill Craybas at Wimbledon. :eek: I was there. It still seems impossible that Serena could possibly play that bad. Especially on grass. Still SMH.

    Common usage isn't 'false', it is the usage of language that makes the most sense to most people. To most people, talking about the 1960s but including 1970 and not 1960 is weird and misleading. That is why in common usage, the 60s means 1960 - 1969.

    Federer is 90th on the all-time list of percentage of break points converted. For context, Nadal is #2 and Djokovic is #7.

    Good stats, but we also need to talk about break points saved to get a true picture of 'clutch'. Otherwise all we are saying is that Nadal and Djokovic are much better returners than Federer. Not even Fed's most deranged supporters can disagree with that? I have the feeling that more than...

    You call it blackmail. I and the rest of the untriggered world call it business. The WTA has a valuable product so they call the shots. They name the terms and conditions that the slams must adhere to if they want that product. The slams are free to take it or leave it. Strictly business.

    They don't have to. They can accept the fact that their tournament revenues will be decimated when the WTA boycott if they don't.
