    anyone really amazed by Gilles Müller in 2017 wimbledon agianst nadal ?

    Hes a lefty with one of the best serves on the tour, (it's as good as any on a good day) who's solid at the net. It was an upset, but not completely unexpected.

    Can Djokovic win FO this year ?

    Cool, mustve been a rumour spread by Trump! I agree with the decision to suspend play anyway.

    Can Djokovic win FO this year ?

    From what I heard he left the venue before they'd decided to postpone it? He very nearly snatched it when they came back on though, I felt a bit sorry for Thiem, but he managed to hold his nerve.

    Anyone get the impression celebrations in the past were more "muted"?

    The celebrations now seem more muted because I have the sound turned off.

    Anyone get the impression celebrations in the past were more "muted"?

    May be, but he wasn't the first to rip his shirt off, it was done many years earlier by Andrew Illie (normally after progressing to the 2nd or 3rd round of the AO) and Pat Rafter (I think after Davis Cup victories).

    Anyone get the impression celebrations in the past were more "muted"?

    And that's only after winning the first point of the match....

    Can Djokovic win FO this year ?

    Djokovic lost a close semi to "some Austrian."

    Can Djokovic win FO this year ?

    No doubt he can, so can Thiem. The pressure is on Rafa, but hes still an odds on favourite.

    DOES TENNIS NEED BIG RULE CHANGES?

    Yes, it would save a bit of time, it all adds up. I have trouble with my ball toss especially under pressure, so I'm not going to push for the rule to be changed haha, but I think its also more fair than the current rule where a receiver can waste energy concentrating and split stepping only to...

    Djokovic's dad refers to Thiem as "some Austrian..."

    That could potentially be a Thiem Djokovic Wimby final script in 2026!

    DOES TENNIS NEED BIG RULE CHANGES?

    Im sure someones mentioned not being allowed to catch your ball toss as a potential rule change!? The only issue being loud noises during the toss. One interesting old rule Im told existed was that you had to serve with your feet on the ground behind the baseline, going back to this would go a...

    Lets - Has anyone ever lost a match due to them?

    I think John McEnroe once accused the umpire of calling "imaginary lets" he asked him "how many imaginary lets are you going to call, you fat t$#d?" (At least he was quoted as saying that) But obviously we're talking real let chords and unless its fast 4 they have to be after the serve.

    If you are Thiem's coach, what tactic you would use tomorrow?

    A bit of serve volley to stop him returning up the guts.

    Kyrgios at it again...

    I'm sure theres one on the way.

    Kyrgios says Nadal is arguably the GOAT

    yeah it means you could argue that he is, but I wouldn't!

    Bottom line...we need the 10 point tie break across the board.

    Whatever they do they should do it across the board (all majors) in my opinion. I think super/match tie breakers are good in the final set. I think that relatively large deficits can be overcome. They've been exciting, the Millman Federer one and the Kyrgios Kachanov one were captivating. (In...

    Kyrgios is serious

    Could be headed for a super Carreno Busta!

    John Millman accused of cheating in the Federer match

    Milkmen have long been accused of unethical behaviour.

    Worst match between two players in which both played badly that you ever saw?

    Kvitova v Laura Robson AO, at least one double fault per game. While the ballstriking was good, both players were following the old adage "hit the ball hard and if it doesnt go in hit it harder" 30 double faults and over 90 unforced errors in the match.

    What are the most annoying or baffling statements that announcers regulary make during a match?

    Or they'll say "I like that tactic though" when the player decides to chip and charge and doesnt go within 2 metres of the passing shot.

    One of Sandgren/Querrey/Pella/Fognini will be Fed's Q/F opponent.

    Ok, I might have to go with that now. Thompson couldnt quite get the better of a volatile Fognini. So after Millman knocks the Fed out again hell have a hangover effect and lose to Fuscovics.

    One of Sandgren/Querrey/Pella/Fognini will be Fed's Q/F opponent.

    Jordan Thompson v John Millman will be the quarter!

    Darren Cahill says balls are “fluffing up” because of how much sand they put in the paint

    Yeah brand new and for the best part of a set after. Haha, just trying to work out what that image is? Theyre visibly larger due to the excessive fluff to the naked eye live? The Wilsons that replaced the AO balls actually arent bad.

    Darren Cahill says balls are “fluffing up” because of how much sand they put in the paint

    They use Dunlop grand prixs in the Madrid open and I think its Monte Carlo.They dont fluff up as much as the AO balls, theyre obviously clay court balls though. I actually think the Dunlop AO balls are faster than the Wilson AO balls were, they just fluff up a bit faster.

    Darren Cahill says balls are “fluffing up” because of how much sand they put in the paint

    The Wilson tours are actually better in that regard and they're a couple of dollars cheaper for a tin.

    Agassi vs. Blake. Incredible!

    Blake was always going to get passed at 5-5? in the breaker, pushing it deepish to Andres bh was a no go, he needed to drop shot.

    Agassi vs. Blake. Incredible!

    Makes you remember how good Agassi was and wonder why Blake didnt achieve more in his career. Reminds me of a couple of the Djokovic Wawrinka matches.
