    Tsitsipas and Fognini few words exchanged

    He is tennis' example of how it's much better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

    Nadal News 2.0

    His injury timing is terrible. Could've been a great opportunity for him to bag a win at IW or Miami.

    Is Nadal the greatest ever athlete in Tennis ????

    @RelentlessAttack is correct in that what you're describing is not what evolution is. Colloquially we tend to call that sort of thing evolution (we tend to call any sort of slow improvement an evolution), but actual evolution takes place via natural selection. Basically, those born with...

    The Boston Massacre

    Yellow could be short for yellowcake, so possibly the former I made the mistake of watching TOWIE one time, and I'm convinced they don't speak English in England either

    "PLAYING THE OLYMPICS WAS A BIG MISTAKE" : Says former Davis Cup Captain on Djokovic

    Hard to see how the OG would have ruined his chances when there was plenty of time between them and he made the final of the USO. If anything it was his constant one set deficit in most of his matches going into the SF and the USO in general being one of his weaker slams that did him in.

    Emma Nike & Wilson deals, one year recurring, £100,000 combined value

    Ew, no. Maybe to wipe the tears of Brexiteers who bought the BS the Daily Mail peddled, but certainly not for food--even for fish and chips.

    Leylah Fernández: “ I want to have the same energy as Federer and Nadal and make the fans smile”

    tbf it should've been obvious neither of them wanted any of that Novak energy the moment no lineswomen were hit in the throat in the final

    How much of Federer's decline in 2008 was due to the height of opponents?

    No, once the tall guys took over, Fedr became the field, and I have it on good authority that the field always catches up and evolves

    Is the Murray forehand considered compact?

    Yes, except no-one seriously thinks Nadal has a compact forehand. Point being that "compact" cannot rely on just elbow spacing. Something like how much the racquet has to travel may make more sense, even if problematic in its own way.

    Is the Murray forehand considered compact?

    Only one of these forehands would be considered relatively compact
