    Federer admits to stealing towels at AO...

    I believe you Sentinel...since you haven't played in any.

    The GOAT of excuses in this era

    Saying you didn't play well over "I was injured" or "not feeling well" is not making an excuse. Think logically for a second here people. If Murray plays badly he loses. He says he plays badly because he did. That's not an excuse. That's a reason. I'm willing to bet every top player...

    I'm not a Fed Lover but You Have to Admit

    Except...he did it's possible. This never crap is kinda sad. I love Federer. He's my favorite player. But records are made to be broken. It wont' be any time soon, but one day his records will be broken.

    Isner attacked for stating the obvious

    Just another point I'd like to make. Lots of guys ranked lower have big serves and huge forehands. What they lack is a good backhand and consistency/accuracy as well as good movement. The top ranked guys all have good defense and good accuracy. Thinking a male ranked 1500 can't...

    Isner attacked for stating the obvious

    It would be uncomfortable for us to watch a match between top ranked men and women. Watching a woman get beaten down embarrassingly triggers protective instincts in men. It's in our genetic makeup to want to protect and take care of women. So, no real man is going to want to demolish the...

    Devin Britton first USO

    I agree. How many people would -PAY- to be able to say I played Federer at the U.S. Open? I'm guessing quite a few fans.

    Devin Britton first USO

    I think it'll be like most Grand Slam 1st round matches for first timers vs. Federer 7-6, 6-0, 6-1, something along those lines of a good first set followed by some baking goods. I've found most first timers in their first big match on the big stage play quite well for the first set...

    My theory on Nadal IF he wasn't injured

    If he did that....why is he playing Montreal -and- Cinci? Shouldn't he have only played 1 or the other to warm up for USO and then just go balls to the walls in New York? I do like your theory though, and that really would take a lot of discipline on his part to not defend what most...

    Who was your favorite player when you started watching tennis?

    Sampras, any other player was too boring for me.

    Top 8 seeds through to the QF

    This is indeed the first time this has happened. 1-4 has happened twice. Or I should say, 1-4 has happened twice with all 4 top seeds advancing to the semis. I don't have dates or events sadly. I was checking out Federer's Masters career and followed some links that I now can't seem to...

    Why I like to see Nadal at #1 and Federer at #2

    Fixed that for you, since this is a comedy thread and all.

    The World has changed a LOT since Federer lost before the semis of a major....

    Really? Because that looks like top 20 and that'd be 2 in the top 10.

    The Fed babies..awwwwwww...

    Then the entire population would eventually die out because we'd be all too old to reproduce with no children on the way. The problem is people having more than 2 children. If every couple had 2 children to replace themselves we'd find a balance.

    Roger needs a hardcourt masters!!!

    They are not endless. Each record is its own topic. I haven't seen endless threads about them wanting him to win a hardcourt MS. The OP was about him winning 1 hardcourt MS which he hasn't done since 2007 to move -closer-to the record 17 held by Agassi. You're simply stating your opinion...

    Roger needs a hardcourt masters!!!

    That's a bit of a blanket statement. I don't think I've ever made an excuse for his losing. Sometimes he appears to refuse to adjust to his opponent mid match. I think that's changing a bit though. I think we need to stop lumping everyone into the category of Fed fan or Nadal fan or...

    Why are there more male defensive players than female ones?

    Perhaps, and this is just mere speculation, it's because men are naturally quicker/faster and can retrieve more would-be winners over the ladies who have almost all, for the most part, adopted a "spank the ball from the baseline" approach to tennis. Apart from the Williams sisters, there are...

    Roger needs a hardcourt masters!!!

    I'm not exactly sure what else you'd expect a Federer fan to do other than root for him to win every match he plays. I've never seen a fan hope that the person/team they root for loses, that would kind of make them.....not a fan. It would appear you've failed to understand what spoiled...

    Roger Federers GREATEST achievment!

    I have to go with the 4+ years of dominance and consistancy.

    Serena's views on the number one ranking.

    The only reason Serena Williams is not #1 is Serena Williams has not dedicated herself to an entire season of tennis. The slams, as special as they are, are just another tournament. She shows up for 4 tournaments a year and usually wins at least one. That doesn't entitle her to the #1 spot...

    The worst sportsmanship in Top 10?

    Isolated incidents can't really dictate overall sportsmanship compared to general attitude in every match. Does Federer get upset every match or lose his temper every match? No. Does Nadal take more time than the rule book says he should between serves or take extra time between breaks...

    GOAT: Either Nadal or Borg!

    But doesn't Big Bill own Poncho on cork 12-1 but gets beat by Nadal on glass 8-6 making the argument moot and bringing us all to the conclusion that Ivo Karlovic is the true GOAT as he beats people with one shot?

    GOAT: Either Nadal or Borg!

    Always nice to see fellow canucks about:) I'm also glad we were able to not start tossing insults and stay on point. I agree completely with Nadal having no excuses in his losses. If he's healthy enough to play he's healthy enough to lose excuse free unless he retires from the match. I...

    Manuel Orantes = Best 1 slam winner ever?

    Even though Orantes has the better career stats at the moment over Roddick I have to go with Roddick only because I believe he's right on the cusp of winning another one and will win more titles by the time his career is over. So perhaps it's premature, but based on personal bias (yes I'm...

    GOAT: Either Nadal or Borg!

    I'm not disagreeing that he's in his prime if you read my original reply to you. Perhaps I misjudged your stance on all of this. I just found it funny that not too long ago Fed was said to be washed up when he wasn't. 2008 would have been a career year for anyone else except maybe Nadal that is...

    GOAT: Either Nadal or Borg!

    One that is consistent. Not a year ago he was on the decline, now he's in his prime still because it's convenient for argument's sake? I never pretended to imagine you'd type like that at all. You can try derail my post to make it seem like I'm attacking you personally if you like, however.
