    Nadal-Kyrgios 2014 Wimbledon 4th round

    He usually has great hands at the net.... it's just he's been too casual and thought he won the point.

    Nadal-Kyrgios 2014 Wimbledon 4th round

    I'm laughing at the guys who think he's a servebot. He's got a complete all round game and he's clutch as **** in tight situation (real clutch).

    Federer and Hewitt and Weak Era Myth

    I hate it when people say 'weak era' and brush off people's achievements. Hewitt is moving at literally at 50% of what his peak was, hes had MAJOR toe/foot/hip surgery, you can guarantee every match he's probably having injections or taking many anti-inflammatories. The guy was told he could...

    Poll: Lleyton Hewitt vs Juan Martin Del Potro

    So happy for Lleyton! He was a bit emotional when talking to Cahill in the interview. I think it's a disgrace that people think that Lleyton took advantage of a 'weak' era. You can only play what you are given and a prime Hewitt would've destroyed Delpo today. Lleyton is moving ok at the moment...

    Federer v. Tomic - 4th Round

    Is Tomic really that unattractive:?. Lots of young girls seem to swoon over him for some reason. Maybe he's famous, who knows but they seem attracted to his looks so I dunno :shock:.

    Wilander on Tomic: top 10 by the end of 2012?

    He doesn't exactly have a great deal to defend though. But yeah, he won't do anything in the clay court season. Much will depend on how he does at Winbledon though, got alot of point to defend so he'll have to have a good draw.

    The little beauty Aussie Lleyton thread

    What people have to understand is that a players on court persona can be very different to their off court one. The way he was hitting the ball last night was definitely close to his best. He was striking it clean, jerking Raonic side to side. He's definitely lost a step or 2 since his prime...

    Top player drought-Australia, US, Sweden

    From Australia's point of view it's hard as we've got lots of sports competing with tennis. We have soccer, AFL, cricket + other sports competing with tennis. We've got some very promising female juniors coming through though, including Bernard Tomic's sister who is one of the best 13 year olds...

    Federer v. Tomic - 4th Round

    The people thinking Tomic will play the same game for Fed as to what he played for Dolgo are kidding themselves. He'll go out swinging IMO, as he knows if he plays the slice/off-pace junk he'll get carved up. He's not that dumb and his team will let him know as well. He'll play similar to what...

    Dolgopolov vs Tomic

    While I don't condone what Tomic did, I think his reaction was heightened by the fact that some idiot in the crowd called "OUT" which put him off a bit I think. If you listen carefully you could hear it as the shot hit the line.

    Tomic's ability to re-direct

    He's got very good racquet control, always has. Allows him to caress the ball effortlessly around the court.

    Dolgopolov vs Tomic

    I think maybe it's different cultures coming to play here. Americans might not heard of the term unco used in Tomic's context much but over here in Australia we use it in the way Tomic uses it. He didn't have any malice in what he was trying to say, especially when you view how he said it as well.

    Tommy Haas's backhand Versus Nadal right now

    Tommy looked really good actually. He played like a top 20 player today... just on the big points he couldn't match it with Nadal. If he stays injury free he should be well on his way back to becoming a seed at grand slams.

    Martina says the AO is slower than clay

    Yeah, when the courts are newly relaid the courts are noticeably slower as it's a rougher surface + the balls get fluffed up alot more (Wilson balls).

    Milos Raonic at AO

    He looked good today, his serving is unreturnable. Did alright in the rallies as well, his backhand looked ok and his forehand was a weapon. He struggles a bit when he's moved around though, if he's stretched... it's basically point over as his defensive skills are pretty average. Also struggles...

    Are we overlooking Stosur?

    I think she's one of those players that takes time to hit form. She will play her best at the end of the season, not at the start. Why? She's not a natural 'tennis player. She's an athlete and she just doesn't have that natural touch to her game so it takes her a while to get into the rhythm of...

    AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2012 - Discussion thread.

    I think that's the worst match I've seen Bernard play this summer. Looked even more sluggish than normal, I reckon he was probably feeling it a bit, played a bit in Brisbane then had 3 matches at Kooyong. Sure, they were only best of 3 but the kid is still young and I think he was feeling it...

    AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2012 - Discussion thread.

    Bernard needed to take more risks in that game. He was playing way too safe, it's been like that the whole match, he's not taken advantage of the short balls enough. He has it in him to go for the backhand down the line or forehand even but he's too intent on just bunting it back to Verdasco...

    Lleyton Hewitt: Little Aussie Battler!

    You can tell he's still injured.. he's moving very gingerly and his toe is ****ed. I think it might be the last hurrah for him soon. I'd love to watch the Roddick/Hewitt match, it will be absolutely epic. 2 old timers, rivals- bringing back the old generation. It would be a very close match I...

    Johnny Mac says Tomic is top young gun

    I remember in the junior days when he was 14-15ish there were big big wraps on him and the hype was starting to come for Tomic. However his dad was a bit of a problem, there were all sorts of rumours about how he treated Bernard- from shouting really aggressively to even hitting him (there is no...

    Johnny Mac says Tomic is top young gun

    I think on grass he is a massive threat. The surface suits his game to a tee, his flat strokes/slice will make it so hard for his opponent on grass. I think he can genuinely challenge for Wimbledon maybe not this year but next year he'll be right up there with the contenders (assuming his...

    Murray vs Tomic - Brisbane 2012

    Tomic got exposed with the slice down the line to his forehand. Struggles to get out there and when he does his shot lacks power which enabled Murray to to just it into the open court or go behind Tomic. I still think he'll push into the top 20 this year though.

    Murray vs Tomic - Brisbane 2012

    Should be a good match. Bernie will put up a good show, he's usually always switched on for the big matches. He'll want to show he's good enough to handle in with the big boys.

    Tomic v Malisse

    I'd say the heat was a factor in him feeling that his string tension was 'off'. Was a pretty hot day compared to the other days at Winbledon.

    Tomic vs Soderling (5:0 1st set, crazy tennis from tomic)

    That was domination from Bernard. He's mixing it up really well and Soderling just seems confused how to play against him. The thing about Bernard is that he always seems to have another gear, he can hit it prettyy damn hard for an 18 year old- but sometimes we don't see it as he just bunts the...

    AO 2011 R32: Rafael Nadal (1) vs Bernard Tomic

    Tonight Bernard really showed the game that he could potentially have- he was absolutely destroying Nadal early in the 2nd set. Winner after winner, bang bang bang. He could only keep it up for 20 minutes but that patch of play will be alot more consistent as he ages and gets more...
