    A bounty on Davydenko's head? Caption!

    This picture is hilarious! The reason for it is because the original caption for the image read Tommy Haas rather than Davydenko, but since you don't see it, it makes for a wonderful image. Let's see your best captions!

    Roddick will finish this year without even a masters

    It's definitely possible. He finished last year with only one win, I believe, over a top 10 player, and that win came in the year-end Masters Cup over Ljubicic.

    Isner vs Federer

    Wait how do we know that Federer will even play Isner in the next round? Isner's got another match to win before he reaches Federer correct? I'm not too familiar with the draw but I know that Isner is one match behind Federer in the tourney.

    How has Federer Changed?

    He is playing less serve and volley, for one, usually preferring to strike his winners from the baseline.

    Yea it's an interesting match. You may want to not post this here though. The match results section exists for a reason.

    Andreev Spin

    Yea he really tears up the ball. If you see the slow-motion plays of his forehand, but has ridiculous racquet-head speed and whip at the point of contact.

    Is this real?

    It was staged for the commercial. I believe they heavily, heavily watered down the clay in that area for the ball to stick in the court like that.

    Whats Wrong With this Pic!!

    Murray actually does have a brother, Jaime Murray. I'm not about what he looks like, but he's played doubles with Andy Murray pretty often.

    Any player who can (could) use 1HBH and 2HBH both?

    Actually, a fairly decent number of players with one handers occasionally return with both hands for extra stability. In particular, James Blake does this often.

    Coria to get $10,000,000 for false drug suspension

    In the cases of Canas or Puerta, the arbitration body found that neither of them were at fault (especially Canas, who took a vitamin that was tainted, through none of Canas's fault, with a diuretic), yet still only reduced their suspensions, rather than clearing them and allowing them to...

    Coria to get $10,000,000 for false drug suspension

    He'll only get 10 million if he outright wins his case in court. They might settle before court, and if not, Coria will probably get 1-3 million max, if the court sides win him. Seeing as how they decided the cases of other doping suspensions, most notably Canas and Puerta, the courts will...

    ANy of you got your racket made only for you?

    You're probably thinking about Bosworth. I think it comes out to about 400 bucks a racquet or something?

    Racquet help!

    I would recommend a heavier, larger racquet that you can tailor towards a more control-oriented style once your game develops. Thus, I would not recommend the racquets that you are looking at (and definitely not the Aero Blast). The Gamma Ipex 5.0 OS looks like a good choice. Another option...

    increasing serving power

    It really depends. For the quickest increase of serve power, just add some lead to the 12 o'clock position. Unfortunately, that will probably lead to a decrease in the overall effectiveness of your game. You use the 6.0 95. That's a fairly decent serving racquet. And what do you mean serve...

    Yonex RDS003,Wilson Nblade, Babolat Pure Storm

    Tell us more about your game. Heavy topspin from the baseline? All-court? Chip and charge? 3.0? 4.0? How much do you rely on your serve? What racquet are you switching from? Why are you switching? Give us some more context and you'll find good help here.

    Best 2nd serve?

    I saw that ridiculous serve of Federer. It was down the middle, curving towards Zib like a slice, and then when it landed, it completely changed direction, jumping way off to the right away from Zib's backhand. Absolutely sick. It was like something from Prince of Tennis. I think it may have...

    Largest Frame on Tour

    Way to answer his question. Monica Seles's huge, extended-length racquet (I believe it was a Yonex) is definitely a candidate for the largest racquet used on tour. As of currently active top pros, there aren't any (besides the Williams sisters) that I can think of with hugely oversized heads...
