    Every Grand Slam Needs One Court With a Roof and Lights

    This is ridiculous. Every single year, weather, light or both wreaks havoc on Major tournaments. It's infuriating.

    A Snippet From Wertheim's Latest Mailbag

    At What Point Does Rafa Surpass Roger in a GOAT Discussion?

    Asking this question seriously... If Rafa wins tomorrow night, and has 11 slams, he'll be tied with Laver and Borg for overall number, and will have multiple slam wins at 3/4 slams. Here's my take: If Rafa can win another Australian Open and another US Open, he'll be right there with Roger...

    Why...

    ...Is ESPN2 showing the Family Circle Cup right now? ESPN has dropped every tennis event outside of the slams, except for this? Why can't they show some of the European Clay Masters events, or IW/Miami? Sigh. I just can't believe that anyone would actually sit down and watch this over...

    Let's Talk About Something Meaningful: A New ATP Sponsor

    New Wilson 90 (PJ) For Fed = AO Title

    2004 - Beats Safin with newly released nCode 90 (or whatever) 2007 - Beats Gonzales with newly released K90 (see above) 2010 - Beats Murray with newly released BLX90 (see above) It's obviously random, but sort of interesting. Wilson must be loving this, and maybe the new paint jobs excite...

    Chris Henry (NFL) Dead at 26

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4750615 Apparently he was in some sort of dispute with his fiancee and fell out the back of her truck while it was moving. He died this morning. A kid who had made some strides in turning his life around. What a tragedy.

    Notre Dame...

    ...It's been a couple years since I've started a college football thread, but this program has become so pitiful that I'm inspired. Any ND fans here? Can you show your faces anywhere? The Irish are currently in a battle with UConn (lmao), and they are in the middle of a third straight...

    I Have to Laugh at all the Nadal Bashing...

    The guy defended his points from last year and regains #2, outlasting Andy Murray in this tournament. This year alone Nadal won his first HC Slam, really imposed himself as the true #1 player in the world with that AO win over Fed and ran roughshod over the competition until the FO. From...

    Women's Tennis is Damn Near Unwatchable...

    I stayed with ESPN2 through some of their coverage of Dementiva and Jankovic, and man...What a terribly sad indictment of the "top" women in the game. I'll give credit to Melanie Oudin for really playing well, but that Jankovic match was just abysmal. Jankovic wasting multiple set/match...

    Deja Vu...

    The talk surrounding Federer and the upcoming US Open is frighteningly similar to Rafa leading up to the French Open. There are differences, obviously, but the overall air of invincibility among fans and pundits is hard to ignore. It seems like Federer winning is a foregone conclusion to a...

    Classic Ivan Lendl Racquets

    I currently have about 20 Ivan Lendl racquets, roughly 10 of the Adidas GTX Pro - T and 10 of the Mizuno Lendl signature frames. These racquets are legitimate and were actually used by Ivan Lendl on the pro tour. They are not authenticated, so obviously I'm not looking for top dollar, but I...

    The Ideal Roger Federer Post Match Interview

    Interviewer: You played well today, Roger, how do you feel? Fed: "Yeah, I think I played my absolute best tennis...I couldn't have dreamed of playing any better, and I still consider myself incredibly lucky to win this match. I didn't think I had any chance, but I guess in the end I was...

    Say What You Want About Federer...

    ...But the guy is a fighter. The entire tournament he's been on the brink, pushed and tested. It's taking him more time to find his game, but he's finding it, and he's winning. He's wearing down opponents physically and mentally, and coming out on top. I haven't been all that impressed...

    Should Nadal Look at a Lighter Schedule in the Future?

    I want to try to be honest here, no trolling or bashing, and no excuse making on Nadal's behalf. I do think though that Nadal was never able to get his teeth in this match. Yes, Soderling did not allow Nadal to get into it, but this wasn't the Nadal that we've grown accustomed to seeing over...

    Great Article about Gasquet

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?entryID=4164293&name=tennis I agree completely. Recreational drugs should be frowned upon and given a penalty that is in accordance with the law, but treating it like a performance enhancer is absurd. Coke would almost certainly hinder any player's...
