    What is the greatest novel you've ever read?

    out of the non-philosophical works i enjoyed Great Expectations and Crime & Punishment most, but many great novels are closer to philosophical textbooks. the Historical novels, like Peace & War or Boodenbruiks were not so my liking

    Do you have a lot of stuff??

    that's the logical thing, but nowadays many or most people possess a lot of stuff they hardly use or never use or can't find if they need it, or can't even remember what they possess, lol.

    Nadal's abdominal muscle tear at USO 2009, from 6 to 26 mm

    for a usual medium severe tear like he claims it is, a normal recovery time is about 6 weeks, and one could play already earlier, just not at one's best.

    Beating Novak at WTF

    seems like a combination of factors in this case. the bo3 format makes it easier for the younger players and these indoor conditions being good for big servers further levels the field. this wasn't such a big deal for the younger DJ, but he's aging and at the end of the season feels this even...

    Guga says that Federer and Nadal have an unfair longevity advantage due to advancement in "medicine and sports science"

    Guga says that Federer and Nadal have an unfair longevity advantage due to advancement in "medicine and sports science"

    true, but his parents (who happened to work for the pharmaceutic industry) know how to balance his metabolism at a professional level.

    Players taller than 192 cm: how they fared in slam final(e)s.

    but why is that? of course more tall people exist today, but they are still much overrepresented in pro tennis. there is a strong trend. on the one hand do i agree that Zverev is overrated, on the other hand has he made the USO final recently and was stopped only last minute by the Clark Kent...
