    Is Dominic Thiem a top 50 player on hard courts?

    I'll preface this by saying that I really like Thiem's game, I've always been a sucker for the 1H BHers who make every shot look so pretty. I thought this would be an interesting question to pose, though. This year on HC Thiem is 18-15. For his career, 72-64 on hard. Keep in mind that Thiem has...

    DIII Men's Team Championship

    #1 Middlebury vs. #5 Amherst, today at 1pm Eastern. Live video is here. Midd and Amherst have played once this season, Middlebury taking a 5-4 victory. Honestly I don't think this match will be that close. Midd's #3 player, Conrad Olson (who played #1 last year and was among the top 5 players...

    Sam Querrey vs. (11) Marin Cilic

    Third match on Centre Court tomorrow, after Sharapova and Federer play. I'm a Querrey fan and I think it should be a good match, but I don't quite see why this is on Centre Court. I mean, I understand there are no Brits playing tomorrow...but still, wouldn't they usually put a higher-profile...

    Separated at birth

    Yeah, I'm sure there have been hundreds of these threads, but I don't really care. Post your pics of tennis players and their lookalikes. Since I couldn't find a picture of a horse ugly enough to resemble Radek Stepanek, I'll start it off with Juan Martin Del Potro and B.J. Novak (Ryan from...

    Artificial rain?

    I just heard from a reliable source that Swiss conspirators in Paris used artificial, fake precipitation to keep Nadal off the courts for the past two days. Poor Nadal. What a victim. It's all a conspiracy. Federer has to cheat to win. These things ONLY happen to Nadal. :roll:

    Ryan Harrison vs. Paul Capdeville

    This result is from the Miami qualies: (20) Capdeville d. (WC) Harrison 6-4, 7-5 Ryan Harrison, the American WC here, is 15 years old. I was shocked to see him in the draw (although he is represented by IMG, so it shouldn't be that big a surprise), and was simply hoping to see him take 2-3...

    How deep will Sam Querrey go in NY?

    First round: Stefan Koubek Second round: [29]Filippo Volandri or Michael Llodra --Volandri has been nothing short of terrible the last several tourneys, so I'm including Llodra as a possibility. Third round: [6]James Blake --We all know Querrey can beat Blake, although I'm not sure who the...

    The players list is here. Murray was supposed to play, but withdrew because of his wrist. Isner is on the list, no mention of whether or not he'll need to play qualies.

    Tsonga, where are you?

    What happened? Is he injured? He hasn't played a tournament since Wimbledon, when he lost to Gasquet in the fourth round!

    Querrey - Young first round in Vancouver

    Sam Querrey is the top seed in the Vancouver, BC Challenger this week, and guess who his opponent is? Donald Young. The two men heralded as the future will play their second professional match against each other. They have quite a history playing junior events, but have only faced each other...

    Washington, DC 2007

    The field is highlighted by Andy Roddick and Tommy Haas, the top two seeds. Roddick's side of the draw is quite weak. The only player in his half who might give Roddick some trouble is Vince Spadea. Haas' side of the draw is slightly more interesting, with Marat Safin, Gael Monfils, and a first...

    Best Finals Matchup?

    The one I'd most like to see is Djokovic-Gasquet, because one of these two players, along with Andy Murray, with catch up and overtake Federer someday. Unfortunately, the final will feature Roger Federer playing against some poor, insignificant soul who won't stand a chance. And I'll enjoy every...

    Federer-Safin match thread

    After Federer's first service game went to deuce, both players have easily held serve. 2-1 in the first, on Safin's serve.
