    35 year old Haas sets sight on WTF, Brings On Waske As Coach

    I really hope he can get inside the top 10, let alone the top 8.

    Haas just can't quite sneak into the top 10

    He's been so close for so long now, I really hope he can get back into the top ten before his career ends.

    Federer highest paid athlete with 71.5 million

    How could Federer be worth only 180 imllion? He doesn't pay any tax in Dubai and he earns 70 million a year? He probably earned even more up till his decline in 2012. I thought he'd be worth 500 million at least.

    Federer has turned back the clock

    After having an injured back for 2 years he looks completely healthy. I expected this to be his last year and to see him exist in the first and second rounds of tournments. Even if it was 2004 Federer would still have lost to Nadal just as he did back then, but to beat Tsonga and Murray...

    Why Fed will lose

    It's unlucky he has to face Nadal, even at his absolute peak in 2004 he lost to him on hardcourt. It's purely a match up issue. I am astounded at Federer's level, his back seems to really be painfree. He's rotating his torso into his shot like he used to and really whipping that forehand again...

    Wimbledon and now the AO are fast again!

    Wimbledon has been fast these last two years, AO is back to 2007 speeds, is the tour being sped up to get the boring, unmarketable Djoker off the top and prolong money machine Federer's career?

    Thankyou AO for speeding up the court

    From the bottom of my heart, thankyou.

    What a joke his career has been when you look at what he can do when he's motivated.

    Jamie Baker's break point: A tennis nomad exits the planet’s cruellest sport

    He admitted he had never trained hard before when he made his great run in the US Open. That's right, they are far more popular than tennis.

    Jamie Baker's break point: A tennis nomad exits the planet’s cruellest sport

    He is complaining, he has admitted before he is incredibly lazy. What does the 185th ranked heavyweight boxer get? What does the 185th fastest 100m sprinter get? He's talked before about how his dad could pull strings and get him a cushy job in the city despite him having no practically no...

    Are the courts actually getting slower?

    The USO was slowed down for Agassi in the mid 1990's. He still couldn't beat Sampras. From the late 90's to 2010 they were absolutely lightning fast. First for Sampras, then they were kept fast for old Agassi, then they were kept fast for Roddick. Only when Roddick stopped being a top player in...

    US Open Champion only hit 27 winners over 4 sets

    They will always favour their own players first. They only slowed them down after Roddick and Blake were finished.

    2 more slams and Rafa is officially better than Fed

    You might be right about Wimbledon, who knows? Nadal changed his game to win the USO when it was still lightning fast in 2010 so maybe he could have done the same at Wimbledon. He definitely has the athleticism to blanket the net and has a very similar serve to McEnroe's and Rafter's...

    The start of the Murray era

    Strange where he says he can't motivate himself. Why does't he try to win the Grand Slam? All 4 at the same time in a calendar year. He's definitely capable of it.

    2 more slams and Rafa is officially better than Fed

    I like them both equally to be honest. My favourite player to watch is Tsonga because he's athletic and serves and volleys and has a great running forehand. Borg, Wilander and Lendl did great in the 80's so Nadal would have been fine. The question isn't who is the best ever, which is...

    US Open Champion only hit 27 winners over 4 sets

    The courts were slowed down when Roddick dropped out of the top ten. Once the big money Roddick/Fed final stopped being a possibility they slowed them down for the next biggest revenue final possible, Nadal v Fed. Until 2011 they were lightning fast and easily the fastest courts in the world...

    What happened to the 2011 Djoker??

    Nadal and Tio Toni were right weren't they? Djoker couldn't keep his hot streak going forever and now he's Nadal's pigeon again.

    2 more slams and Rafa is officially better than Fed

    In 5-6 years time people will look up who has the most slams, see that the leaders are Fed at 17 and Rafa at 15, look at their head to head and conclude Nadal is better. Fed knows this, that's why there's no way he'll retire. His actual record could conceivably be gone in 18 months.

    Hate saying this, but Fed should retire

    This time next year Nadal will probably have 16 slams. At least Sampras could enjoy his record for half a decade, if Fed retires he could lose it in 18 months. If he cares about his legacy he absolutely has to win another slam.

    2 more slams and Rafa is officially better than Fed

    15 slams plus the dominant head to head on every surface will put him ahead of Federer in the history books. I can't see anyone challenging him now. Murray and Djoker have lost their mojo and Federer is only going to win 1 more major tops if at all. AO + RG and he's officially better than...

    The Sampras running "Banana" forehand

    I think Becker's was maybe even better, probably because he could get even more spin with his western grip. Nadal in 2007 was using that shot all the time for a few months, he must have only recently learned how to do it and was doing it in every match for a month or two, and he was getting...

    Nadal is returning close to the baseline o_O

    He only runs fast 2-3 times a match, has a knee injury and is being much more aggressive, why would I need to ask him if those things are connected?

    Davydenko biggest quitter ever or was he really injured?

    Davydenko is physically in terrible shape and has been for 2 years. He's completely lost his speed because of his chronic injuries. It's entirely possible that they built up to a point where it was just too painful.

    Should Tennis change the rules and allow umps to review the tape?

    Yes, but only once a match or something but definitely.

    Nadal is returning close to the baseline o_O

    Nadal can't grind anymore. He still has his speed but he can only use it a few times a match without aggravating his knee. Luckily he still has one of the best forehands in the world to fall back on and he's left handed, so he's having a second career as a left handed Moya, which should give him...

    Mohamed Lahyani makes a big mistake in the match Raonic / Del Potro

    Thanks, I completely agree. Ignore Woodrow, he appears to have some emotional issues and you're not the only one to experience this.
