    Sampras and the Era of Champions

    Thalassemia - shmalassemia. All these Sampras excuses. When Fed wins wimby 2008 ( if he does), Sampras will become just another one of them "greats", whereas Fed will be the best tennis player that ever lived.

    People are so tought on Nadal: give him a break?

    People hate Nadal because he is all brute force, nothing graceful about the kid. But he is a true fighter, something that Federer is not. You could see Fed folding his mental tent at that wimby final, whining about the calls and all. Wimp.

    Year end #1 ranking-Federer or Nadal?

    Rafa is going to have his butt kicked again at USO, his game is not working there as well as at other slams. Fed is gonna be # 1 for a while now.

    Geez Maria

    She is probably considering becoming a US citizen. Why the heck not, she grew up in US. She owes nothing to Russians. Russian cap Tarpishev knows it, too, so he has always been respectful to her, he knows they would be lucky to ever get her to play for them.

    The Real Roddick

    Roddick is done winning. Linesmen helped him win US Open, but his luck has run out at Wimby, the only place where he has a shot anymore. Put a fork in him. He is done. Too bad, he can be really funny in his comments

    Monte Carlo 2007 Final: Federer vs. Nadal

    It's nice to know that at least one guy can consistently beat Federer, albeit mostly on clay. Someone needs to keep him honest, keep him from getting full of hisself. Job well done by Rafa. He is money in the bank on clay.

    Monte Carlo 2007 Final: Federer vs. Nadal

    Yeah, and Rafa's message to Fed is likely to be the same as usual: " Again, for the upteenth time, here is your butt handed to you on a clay platter ".

    Marat Safin vs. Andy Roddick

    Roddick is going to take it, he has been feeling good about himself lately, and he has a good record against marat on hard. Marat has been up and down and all around last year, he is far from the top of his form. However...he is playing his favorite Grand Slam, and he doesn't like Roddick...

    I am too... excited about the new year... 3 weeks away :)

    So Kite, how would you like it if Nadal wins the AO? Would you be more or less excited?

    Screw Nike, I wanna see Lebron hustle stray tennis balls.

    Stepanek,wihtout a doubt, is the ugliest man on tour. Yikes. Beauty truly must be residing in the eyes of the beholder.

    Federer's grace: to all the non-belivers and jealous/envious lot:

    Calling Nadal a monkey boy diminishes Fed in and of itself. Rafa has been very gracious both in victory and defeat, and he is well respected for that; As great a human being Fed is, he is also a bit of a sissy, so we are lucky to have someone like Rafa to counterbalance that :)

    Federer's backhand down the line improved?

    That backhand winner that he half volleyed off the baseline was the craziest half-volley ever. Blake couldn't even touch it. Anyone who plays tennis knows how hard it is to hit a winner like that after you just hit a serve.

    Fed = multilingual?

    His fav expression when he misses a forehand? "Scheissseee!!!"

    Fed - Blake Final: Spoiler

    Fed played a sick match. He did to Blake what he did to Hewitt in the US open double bagel, but this time it wasn't just power, he was hitting all kinds of sick shots, especially on his backhand side. Insane tennis. Poor James.

    Thoughts on Fed-Nadal match

    It's all mental at this stage, either Fed gets his crap together and wins or Rafa does his usual in-your face and Fed folds. 6-3 to Rafa so far.

    Nadal Vs Blake

    Rafa has entered a dangerous territory here. Davidenko has been playing solid tennis recently, won Paris masters easily, and who knows...Rafa may have to pack up way sooner than anyone expected. Would be soo bad, he is way more fun to watch than Davidenko.

    Nikolai is kinda like Kafelnikov used to be, playing everything, winning a lot, making a good living. He comes from extremely humble beginnings, so he is not going to pass any opportunity that comes along. I saw him play and warm up, he is one of those guys that are really good at everything...

    New website for Svetlana Kuznetsova

    Well, it's been a long time coming, and finally, someone did it. Here is to Lauri for supporting a human being, not just some pair of **** and a pretty face. Sveta is a good friend to a lot of people.

    Federer match highlights from Basel

    I cant believe people still bit-ch and moan on this board about "boring" federer. This is the best tennis ever played, ferrer-fed match was insane.

    Video of Pierce getting injured.

    That is some bada ss injury. Too bad, she was one game away from winning the match. She might have to retire because of this, her knees have taken so much pounding, recovery might take years.

    Those balls are freakin fast

    Heck, Federer hisself said that after he watched Wavrinka at Wimby he was ammazed how hard guys were hitting the ball and how fast it was moving. He said he doest watch normally, so it was new to him.

    Nadal confessing he is tired both physically and mentally

    Gosh, I get tired just watching him chasing after each and every ball, time after time after time. I was wondering when he would start feeling it. Even Fed is getting his ankle all bent out of shape, and he doesnt have to chase anywhere near as many balls.

    Remember Wilander's comment: no balls?

    Rafa may be losing a lot of ground to a lot of players on a fast surface, but he owns the best guy out there , Rafa owns Federer. Roger knows it, too. He keeps saying how he doesnt care about playing Rafa, how he only cares about winning titles. Yeah, right.

    Marat Safin's art in Moscow State Exhibition Hall....

    Marat did not do the exhibit, two other artists did. Pretty cool Idea IMHO.

    Is Golovin right to play for France? Is Sharapova right to play for Russia?

    Both girls should play for whatever country they want to play for. Freedom, baby.

    Roddick is sitting pretty with his stats, I guess it goes without saying that with that serve of his he can always win at least a game or two.

    wta race tightening up

    French is her least fav tourney, she hates clay because she can't win those winners anymore, it all comes back to her and she cant move well on clay. Girl is tall, really tall. Tough to move legs that long, as good as they are lookin...
