    Azarenka = Irritating

    I would add the caveat here there decibels are in a logarithmic scale...sorta like the Richter scale where a 7.0 is a hell of a lot worse than a 6.0 earthquake (by 10 times, not just "1 level" higher). Also I would be interested if any men stack up near these levels. For the most part there is...

    US Open Series Atlanta: Terrible.

    So Atlanta held a spot in the USO lineup but it was on clay, got moved to Indy starting 02 onto hard, and is back now '10 in the ATL. I'm a resident just about 5miles away so it'll be hard for me to walk out disappointed...

    The Last Two FO's have shown....

    That Soderling is basically a mindless baseline basher, proving that there is room in the Top 10 for these players. Let's face it, with all due respect to the success Soderling has had since last year, he's still at the end of the day a mindless baseline basher. He relies on fast, deep shots...

    Predictions for 2010?

    Nah I wasn't serious with my earlier post. I don't think Davy will take those slams nor do I care for him to. Want: AO - Really close between Nadal and Roddick FO - Nadal Wimby -'s finally his time USO - Djokovic Think: Fed 2 slams out of 3 (exclude FO...FO = Nadal for sure)...

    Predictions for 2010?

    Santoro's playing the Australian Open!

    What an arrogant jerk, denying some possible newcomer an entry into a GS event just so he can have a "thing" He better do some work in there and go into at least Rd 3 if he's gonna be such a co**block.

    2009 ATP Serve Awards

    You're putting him in the wrong position, unless Anaconda is a top 50 pro player. Numbers speak volumes, and here, Roddick trumps Karlovic in all service categories except Aces.

    Female version of Nadal?

    Physically I get the sense Serena is as imposing as Nadal is.

    Best Davis Cup player this era

    Why's there no Roddick option? That's who I vote for purely numbers-wise.

    Nadal vs Soderling 2007 Wimbledon 3rd Round

    He already proved it wasn't a fluke by beating Nadal in 4 sets. Clearly Nadal took a set off him, showing that it was still a fight...and the 4th set ended in a tie break. Soderling outplayed Nadal, as much as I hate to say it it is the truth. Nadal was not playing his 100% at FO. I think...

    Nadal vs Soderling 2007 Wimbledon 3rd Round

    Hm so it's automatically pathetic if a Top 5 player gets defeated by someone who's outside of that group? What about Fed's losses this year? I would argue 2nd round in a masters event is a much worse result than 4th round at a Slam, right? (Paris, L to Bennetau in Rd 2 [effectively first round...

    Which country has the best system for producing pros?

    It has to be Spain...even players like Safin, Safina, Murray, etc. have gone to train in Spain in their youth. France is a close second.

    Best mens hard court player of 2009

    I'm not a Fed hater but he doesn't deserve all these votes after the fact that he did not win any hardcourt slams this year. Sure he made the finals but then you toss in the other hard corut event results, and Nadal cleanly surpasses Federer here in terms of TMC events. Djokovic should be on...

    Race to Year End No.1 (Spoilers)

    WTF points go exclusively to the winner, 1500 points. So in theory Nadal could end #1, yes, but he would have to win the whole thing. Judging by his match today, I'm sad that that's a distant possibility right now.

    Which player is the most intimidating to play against?

    I think Nadal. Federer's a close second though. Obviously Fed's an intimidating opponent...reasons have been mentioned here. Nadal I think is a little more intimidating because of his unorthodox style. With Fed, for instance, you know the type of game he's going to bring; he's just going...

    Soderling or Verdasco ?

    Wow dead heat till I cast my vote for Verdasco. I think Verdasco has shown better consistency by going deeper in all tournaments this year. Soderling, sure he had his run @ FO, but one run doesn't mean anything. Verdasco built on his momentum and went deep in most of the tournaments he...

    Agassi says he tanked matches, calls Sampras one dimensional, calls Connors a name

    Agassi is way more multi-dimensional than Sampras. Sampras didn't win FO. Agassi was able to win all 4 slams. Therefore, Agassi had the dimensions needed in his game to win all surfaces. Sampras, only grass/hard.

    Punishments for Agassi

    I don't really care; it's over 10 years ago and it's not like crystal meth is a performance enhancing drug like HGH or anabolic roids. Besides, I doubt he actually used meth on the court. Just a thought; it could be considered "performance enhancing" if he used it while playing, but uh that one...

    Will Andy Murry be suspended in 2010 Miami?

    I thought they both didn't play (or at least I know Murray for sure) due to recovery from injuries...or so they claim. If it's an injury they don't require the players to play.

    So which Grand Slam is the greatest after the two GREATEST - Wimby and FO ?

    He's probably an American biased that all things American are great. USO draws bigger crowds, livelier atmosphere, etc. Can't look at the big picture probably.

    Best Federer vs Best Nalbandian

    This thread isn't about a consistent ability to win slams. It is an argument of pure extremes: best Federer vs. best Nalby. Consider this -- 2005 is considered a year of Fed's prime. Safin defeated Federer in AO 05, demonstrating clearly that in a single match players with enormous talent...
