    AO2009 3rd Round: Federer vs Safin

    Safin plays his best tennis in AO. He almost always did. Roger plays well there too but he is not at his peak like he was in 2004 and 2005 when they played last in Australia. Of course same thing can be said about Marat to even bigger extent. I say Marat has a chance... but realistically, I...

    roddick weak tennis aussy open rd 1?

    He is playing same style as he will play against top ranked player and basically 98% of all his matches. Since he never misses, he will just roll the ball around until opponent makes a mistake.. of course when he plays a decent player he gets punished. Also, don't expect Andy to hit flat...

    gasquet forehand grip!!

    How the heck is this a continental grip? Looks semi-western finish to me. I think he prepares for a shot with continental, but midway through takeback, he switches to semi.

    Will Gasquet ever win a slam?

    You clearly are just pulling some of these numbers out of you arse. His serve is not top 30? Then why the heck he was in top 10 in most categories on serve the last two years? Do you even check match facts on atp website? Last year he averaged something like 9 or 10 aces per match and that was...

    Will Gasquet ever win a slam?

    dude, he had 4 aces alone. 5 winners overall? What are you smoking sir? I have seen everyone of his matches from both 2007 and 2008 Wimbledon's and on average he hits most backhand winners of any player including Federer, Murray, etc.

    Will Gasquet ever win a slam?

    Funny you say that because his backhand clearly works best on grass. No other player in the world hits as many bh winners on grass as he does.

    Safin or Nalbandian?

    Nalbandian. Far more control on that side. Marat's little more powerful, but his placement isn't that great.

    Safin or Nalbandian?

    Nalbandian. The way he played at the end of 2007 was some of the most impressive tennis I have ever seen from anyone. Not only he beat Federer and Djokovic more than once, but he also absolutely demolished Nadal like he was some kind of a beginner. Twice.

    who will be the best french player??

    Will depend of Tsonga's health and Richard's confidence/mental toughness in the future. I think these two are a bit more talented than the others and will probably(hopefully) achieve more things.

    Roddick beats amateur with a frying pan (7-4, lol)

    There is a full video of this on espn's tennis home page. Go here and it will start automatically on the right side. Guy he played is probably 2.5 at best. I am pretty sure a semi decent 3.5 player would beat Andy in that case pretty easily.

    Ernest Gulbis...players should be scared

    But Blake never had Gulbis' weapons, particularly the serve and more solid backhand.

    Roddick GS predictions for 09

    Impact of Gasquet win on Murray's resurgence

    Stop it Richie21. And btw, what you claim is wrong, he had better second half of the year. At least he reached some finals and semis, which he couldn't do in first half. Still, though a horrible year for Richard. In first half of the season, Richard after losing first set went 0-8 in...

    So is Giles Simon more of a french prodigy than Gasquet?

    Gasquet is an artist and when he feels good about himself and about his game, he can produce masterpiece on the court.. but when he is not, he can be really off. I wish people would get off his back and accept him who he is.

    New World No.1 Doesn't Live Up to Expectations on Fast Surfaces

    Federer has had an off year overall for the exception of US Open. I think that is clear to everyone. Also, it is true that Nadal, although number 1 overall, is clearly not the best player on by far the main surface of the tour - hard courts. So far in his career he has NOT reached a single hard...

    Nadal vs. Gasquet

    Agree completely (except I don't whine about draws... :)). His backhand failed him especially in second set and he panicked and started to rush and that's when his game went downhill. Agree that he is on the right track, meaning the type of tennis he is playing right now will bring its benefits...
