    ESPN AO Picks

    Some horrible picks here. Raonic winner is a shot in the dark, and Wawrinka and Nadal both have incredibly easy draws, yet are nominated for toughest road.

    Cold weather play: Left hand felt much colder than the right.

    Always like that for me. The opposite if I'm playing a sport I play left-handed.

    Federer, Nadal criticized by Roddick - ANDY ENVIOUS?

    Federer and Nadal are both PR machines. He's totally right. Even though Nadal is a villain to many, he sure doesn't embrace it and tries to create a positive "warrior" narrative for himself. Federer seems to pride himself on his lack of expression, though he's been more straightforward in the...

    Short for an American. 5'8 and look shorter

    Apparently Dimitrov was practicing at UCLA......

    Jesus, he'll be on Edberg by next month at the rate he's going through Federer's life.

    Why Federer has more love, but Nadal has more followers on social network?

    Nadal has been more successful in the past few years and is thus as well or better known among casual fans who watch tennis a couple times a year. Federer is much more popular amongst people who watch frequently.

    Where does Djokovic's 2013 season rate in terms of best YE#2?

    He really should have won 3 Slams... just failed in the mental aspect in big events.

    Which year do you prefer 2013 or 2014 for ment's tennis

    2014 was better for sure, slightly better quality and much more exciting results- most notably the rise of young players. I think most people saying 2013 are doing a knee-jerk reaction to an admittedly awful WTF

    Does Anyone Not Have a Favorite?

    I'm a fan of players, but no top player if that's what you mean (despite the name, not really a Djokovic fan for a while). Ferrer, if he counts.

    you guys talk about equaling prize money, I say the women should start playing 5 sets

    I agree with it in principle. But on the other hand, ugh, they take up enough court time already.

    Why does Nadal lose to non-Big 3 in Slams

    Nadal is (and so is Murray) more vulnerable to anyone having a hot day because he is a defensive player. Simple as that. The more aggressive Federer and Djokovic are much more masters of their own fate. This is one of the reasons it is so stupid to bring up head to head. You have to play very...

    Would you rather lose like Bouchard or Federer?

    Bouchard tbh. Preferably somewhere in between. Neither heartbreaking nor humiliating. A nice clean 6-3 7-6(2) 6-4

    If Djokovic wins W 14, would you consider him better grass player than Nadal?

    About even. Nadal will have more finals but also some bizarre losses.

    Vegetarian Pros

    This really isn't true anymore. Was some years ago. Burger King actually has a veggie burger- though it's super low calorie.

    Vegetarian Pros

    I used to. Still eat mostly carbs, just monitor the amount and play a good amount of tennis. Plan on trying to become vegan after college, but unsure I can survive. I don't know where in America people have felt pressure to be vegetarian. Everywhere you go it seems to be "how preachy of you to...

    The Ageless David Ferrer.

    I'm a fan of his, but yeah he probably uses PEDs. All the Spaniards do from what I've heard- and most everyone else too.

    ATP 250 - Open de Nice Côte d’Azur - May 18-24

    Montanes clutch as always. He pretty much had to make a SF here to keep his career alive at all. And he makes his first one of the year, coming back from a set down twice in a row.

    Tennis players that smoke..

    Well, smoking in a locker room is really not okay. Especially for players with asthma who are about to play like Djokovic. And I say this as a (light) smoker myself.

    Best returner with a one handed backhand

    In the past it was quite good, right now it's pretty mediocre. Statistically, it's actually Volandri

    Players with the biggest groundstrokes (forehand and backhand combined and averaged)?

    Pure pace? Gotta be Rosol Gulbis and Almagro have a ton of power too, Wawrinka has more variety though he can certainly hit both sides hard

    Lukas Rosol

    He plays unintelligently. He controls every match he plays, very rarely does his opponent have much say in who wins his matches. But that doesn't win matches when you go for winners on every shot, including those you really don't have. A switch to controlled aggression rather than a purely...

    Better Passing Shot: Nadal or Hewitt

    Hard to compare. Nadal's seem better but he has much easier conditions. If prime Hewitt had played in this era, they'd be pretty even IMO. Nadal on the forehand and Hewitt on the backhand.

    Why didnt we see 'Booing is disgraceful thread' when Azarenka took MTO ?

    Nadal has a huge reputation for strategic MTOs. Boy who cried wolf, really. People didn't believe him when he had what seems a real injury.
