    Miami Open 2016 General Discussion Thread

    I have family responsibilities for both Purim and Easter so I don't have time to make a poll, but I was looking around and realized we don't have a general discussion thread. Who wins? Does Djoker do the back-to-back, making history yet again? Is anybody else tired of that & hoping for a new...

    Rafa knows when he and Roger play well and when they play not so well

    “Playing Federer always provides a special satisfaction as we have played so many important matches,” said Nadal, who improved to 16-8 overall against Federer. “It was a difficult game, not one of our best games for either of us.”

    ATP Top Five All in Doubles in IW 2011 - Historic?

    I'm not sure, and I'm not sure what kind of coverage we'll get before finals, but I thought it'd be interesting to discuss. For starters, defending champions, world number one doubles, and Olympic champions are all in, and if you've seen the draw, there are some intriguing matchups...

    So if Rafa & Gonzo's QF match is called because of rain ...

    ... what happens to the rest of the schedule for the weekend? (I'm not talking about a rain delay. I'm talking about what happens if the end of the match is postponed ...?)

    R16: Simon v. Tsonga, French #1 & 2 - who wins and why?

    Simon recently replaced Tsonga as French #1. Tsonga already has titles this year. Tsonga is still arguably coming from behind after surgery. Simon is still arguably recovering from Davis Cup. Who wins and why?

    Would Rod Laver coach Roger? Has Roger thought about asking him?

    I've been thinking. Especially in light of how much credit Nando Verdasco gives his talks with Andre for improving his strategy (and that seems to have worked pretty well so far). - As much as he seems to revere him, - as much drama as he's had with other people that could help him (like...

    I'm too nervous to talk about Federer v. Tursunov and the rain delay. Let's talk about this. Andy back to form? Can he force Juan to the corners? Juan coming off back to back masters with Stuttgart and Austria? Is the 6'6" serve too big even for Andy? Please discuss.

    Higueras, Federer, Ginepri, Cincinnati?

    Did I read somewhere that Jose Higueras coaches both Rogi and Ginepri right now? I know that the two players are supposed to meet in first round Cincinnati. Are there conflict of interest rules about that sort of thing?

    So Rogi's head is cut off and Rafa's sprouts in its place ...

    ... and what happens to the actual tennis? Rafa swept through the tournament for a couple of reasons: 1) He is a great player 2) There is no one currently on tour who can beat him consistently. And wasn't that the state of tennis for so many years when Rogi was in charge? Tsonga - frequently...
