    Tsitsipas road block: parents in the box, father as primary coach

    Relaxed I am, but name one player who won one slam, let alone multiple, with his dad as prime coach. That will be hard. Aside from that there are multiple reasons for me thinking he needs a fresh face and new prime coach, if he wants to break through and win many big ones. In part Tsitsi is...

    Tsitsipas road block: parents in the box, father as primary coach

    A Vajda type coach would be perfect for Stef, but unfortunately he will not win multiple slams with his dad as coach. Even though Apostolos may/will stay his main advisor and "dad".

    How can every umpire be the worst umpire?

    Nick berates the uneven playing field created by the ITF ATP WTA, on which he is right, after which he should realize that this method and strategy has been the case for thousands of years. changing that is impossible. Corporate power has given birth to the ATP, so nick, get the hell ouit of...

    "I Am Glad To Witness, Your Greatness"

    The active aggressive version is much more in usage around here, I'm sure someone with your obvious bright mind and observational skills notices "such", as is the case here in post 13351156 by member 51892. If you don't respond to the content of the original post and instead just pull out some...

    Fed out of Rome

    Osaka, Federer, the list is endless... If Tsitsipas is smart he will forfeit the semi, leave nadal in a vacuum with just Novak to haunt bull. Itś going down but for Tsitsipas. When will he bow to money and corporate interests? Fed's withdrawal is so odorous, all we need now is a final...

    Bertens through to the semis! - due to withdrawal symptoms from Osaka, falsely citing right wrist injury.

    "I Am Glad To Witness, Your Greatness"

    Rafissante ridiculed Tsits for not knowing that a ball touching a small part of the line is "in", and some more 10-year-old stuff. Just watch the vid, Search for it, Kyrgios said the same thing recently, as you point out. But it's been seen and heard before, so settle the differences on the...

    "I Am Glad To Witness, Your Greatness"

    Anyone knows who said this to whom? It was barely two days ago, too easy I know, but it resonated very well with me, both Speeches in Madrid after the final, lots of warmth, clarity, and genuine respect. Wawrinka btw has also said that Novak was a great inspiration for him, a number of years...

    With just one masters left, who's the current favorite for the French?

    I don't know about the length of form curves, but Djokovic seems to be the only one who can tweak and time his form curves, going by last year's Wimbledon, Cinc, US Open, and Melbourne. No other player on the tour seems to have that ability. Comparable to Ronnie O'Sullivan in Snooker. But...

    With just one masters left, who's the current favorite for the French?

    And another thing: Thiem has just won his biggest title on Hard, making him a main contender for the title in Paris is a tad far-fetched. Thiem is just one of the leading outsiders after the big three.

    With just one masters left, who's the current favorite for the French?

    Yeah, predictive value of Madrid can only exist in the heads of stat nuts. Prepostrous to even contemplate Madrid as indicative except for form shown during that week.

    Marko Djokovic as a coach.

    Federer played without a "box" coach for a number of years, Marko is mainly a hitting partner, and from love Djokovic has put him in the sun, in the box as coach, so that Vajda can have a week off here and there to spend time with his family. Vajda is the main coach. Marko taking over that job...

    Is it possible that an insanely favourable draw can keep Nadal afloat until the semis?

    With just one masters left, who's the current favorite for the French?

    You have enough time to say it hundreds of times before Nadal gets knocked out in Paris in the 4th round... SAY IT!!! Personally I'd bet my house on Nadal not winning RG 2019, sorry to tell ya, mate.

    2019 Madrid ATP SF: RAFA [2] vs Tsitsipas [8]

    It's all related, in music, in food production, in film, online, the trend is to move away from organic, and replace it by digital.

    Why couldn't Fred and Djokovic get to play this Nadal ?

    Because Nada wasn't injured in those matches.

    Nadal only loses on clay, he does not get beat

    Indeed, Nadal played crap as per WhiskeyEE, worse than his 2015 ultra-crap year, and his opponents deserve no credit whatsoever. Tsitsipas and Fognini played mediocre at best.

    Why some posters don't like Nadal?

    Good point @Moses85 - the list is endless. Though this one will handily land in the Top 10.

    Nadal only loses on clay, he does not get beat

    Moya didn't say "unbeatable forever", which is what some of his fans and people surrounding him are severely struggling with.

    Why some posters don't like Nadal?

    Because he's a bad loser, probably the worst in Tennis history. Always citing injuries when he loses... Nadal is the Worst Loser Of All Time. Write that down on paper 100 times, else the ghosts of Brown, Darcis, Kyrgios, Rosol and Wawrinka will haunt you until time indefinite.

    Nadal only loses on clay, he does not get beat

    Nadal only loses on clay, he does not get beat

    I agree with you, but Nadal's bad loser behaviour does have an explanation. Nadal was brainwashed from an early age that he would become UNBEATABLE on Clay, there is footage of Moya saying that when little Rafa was barely 16 years of age. Rafa will remain on this cloud until he drops dead on...

    2019 ATP Madrid SF: Djokovic [1] vs Thiem [5]

    Who cares... it was a legit match, impressing armchair wingnuts is not the issue, so whine on about "versions of Nadal", which is pathetic anyway, but discarding that match is part of the record in Paris because Nada wasn't in tip top form is outright delusional.

    He has, and added to that the times are different now. Past meetings are in quite a few cases are not indicative of future meetings among aging ATGs.

    2019 Madrid ATP SF: RAFA [2] vs Tsitsipas [8]

    That's organizational insanaty. Players reduced to merchandise. I like Tsitsipas, and he could lead the quest and necessity for a players union.
