    2016 Davis Cup Final - Croatia vs. Argentina

    All I'm going to say is: I MISSED TALK TENNIS BIG TIME. And I'm so glad this happened. Argentina deserved a Davis Cup for so long. Del Potro showed tremendous heart and Delbonis played the match of his life. There's nothing else to say. I've waited more than 30 years for this: ARGENTINA 2016...

    What are the biggest What-Ifs in ATP over the last decade?

    I think Nalbandian winning the USO 2003 could've changed completely his career, aspiration, and the landscape of the men's tour.

    Let's Talk Some NBA 2014-15!

    LeBron averaged 36 ppg shooting 39% off the ground. Thirty nine per cent!! Got any idea how many shots do you need to shoot each night to score 40 while shooting less than 40%? 33 shots a game! That's Gilbert Arenas meets Monta Ellis territory If his percentage would've been closer to 47 or...

    Murray to win Wimbledon 2015

    I think Murray is, along with Djokovic, the biggest favourite to win Wimbledon this year. I would love to. I love multi-slam-winners seasons.

    Djokovic's 5 years at #1 more impressive than Federer?

    While I agree with most of your points, I'm struggling with this last sentence. Nadal wasn't anyone's PICK for #1. It wasn't a choice, like ITF's. Nadal won the ATP YE#1 because he ended up with the most points. It wasn't subjective, it wasn't random, it wasn't a choice. He wasn't picked. He...

    "He wants to play on a softer grass court"

    A softer grass court would be a faster grass court, as it would deaden the bounce, making it low by default. A softer undersoil would absorb most of the energy.

    Del Potro with pain again...

    The guy had a surgery in mid January. He's not finished, it just hasn't healed yet. Man, three months is not enough to heal a repaired wrist. Give it some time, don't rush it, let it heal. Once that's done, you'll be back pain-free. But he keeps on rushing it, and of course he'll experience...
