    McEnroe "There should be no pre match warm up in Tennis"

    Heard him say this on the BBC radio today. His argument is that Boxing doesn't have pre match warm up in the ring and boxing is a more physical game. He said players should warm up in the locker room or the gym and be ready to serve straight away once they are on court. I kinda like this idea. I...

    Max Mirnyi calls Nadal's game "boring"

    Just heard him on BBC2, in an interview. When asked who he would prefer to play, Roger or Rafa? He replied "I find Rafa's game boring and predictable, you know its going to be physical and he will try to wear you down or if your lucky you might just sneak out a win. With Roger its totally...

    Do you want a Fedal final?

    Being a Fed fan myself, I do want a Fedal final and would love to see Fed beat Rafa in a slam final. Even if that doesn't happen, I would love to see a Fedal final because the level of play and drama goes through the roof. I have to admit I have enjoyed watching Federer's losses to Nadal except...

    Why does Djokovic runs around his Backhand?

    I am watching the US open final and one thing I notice is that Djokovic keeps running around his Backhand to hit Forehands. Why does he do that when he has a more stable and devastating Backhand? Nadal keeps dropping the ball short in the middle of the court and instead of ripping cross court...

    Congratulations Djokovic

    Now that he has beaten Fed, I feel he can win the whole thing. The semi final wasn't that long only 3:30 hours and he should have plenty in his tank left. If Djokovic stays aggressive and serves like he did today against Nadal in the final, I think he will win in 4 sets. I feel Djokovic is a...

    Federer is done, Stick a fork in him

    Trolls are going to do it so I said why not. Lets hear it all here. Federer sucks and needs to retire and he will never win another slam. He is lucky he plays in a week era with chokers of the highest level. Federer is lucky he won Roland Garros and Wimbledon because Nadal was injured. Now...

    Which final would you prefer?

    I would prefer a Djokovic vs Del Potro final for the sake of better tennis. Fed seems to have Del potro's number and it might be a very one sided final. On the other hand Djokovic vs Del potro final might be even worse and a choke fest. Since its Del potro's first slam final and Djokovic seems...

    Why does Murray have such a slow racket-head speed?

    I am watching him against Cilic right now and he seems really slow on the forehand side. He can't seem to generate any power and is just pushing the ball in. Compare him to Federer or Nadal or even Djokovic his racket-head speed seems really really slow. Is that why he can't seem to generate...

    Do top pros practice new shots during matches?

    Having seen great players like Sampras, Agassi Nadal and Federer, I have a feeling that these guys practice new shots during their matches. Not in the quarter finals or later stages but when they are playing some no name players during early rounds. Does anyone think that?

    Can we all agree now that Murray is

    the 2nd best player in the world after Federer. The rankings don't lie and I think he deserves to be there. Sure Nadal was resting and stuff but Murray has really been rock solid. I see him winning a major in 2 years. Is he really the 2nd best or did he just get lucky?

    Federer winning French open and Wimbledon back to back

    Nadal was the first man to win French open and wimbleon back to back since Bjorn Borg and now Federer has done the same just one year later. What an amazing acheivement this is. How long will it take for someone else to repeat this feat. Maybe 30 years or 1 year. What an unpredictable sport...

    This really shows how hard it is to stay No 1 in the world for 4 1/2 years and reach 19 consecutive semi finals of Grand Slams. Many people say Federer is not mentally strong but it just shows how strong he is. Federer fans must appreciate everything he has brought to the game of tennis and...

    Is Nadal's schedualing a big problem?

    The title says it all really. He played a tourney in Rottherdam after winning the Aussi Open and then he played Barcelona which are not compulsory. Should Nadal do what Federer has done and only play big tournaments and leave some extra gas in the tank. Nadal looked a little slow in his match...
