    Would you want a Nishikori vs Berdych, Raonic vs Ferrer semi-finals this OZ Open 2016 ?

    I know that the Fed fans want the 18TH GS. The Djokester Fans want the 6th AO trophy, and that the Muzza fans want the lone AO Championship win to add to his other 2 GS. One of these three winning it this year would be historic, esp for the 1st 2 Legends of our game, but as a tennis fan, will...

    Poor destroyed again!!!

    This is a tribute to the ever smugface Kyrgios. Beaten again for the 3rd consecutive time this year by Gasquet. When Kyrgios' name was called, he's received boos and jeers from the crowd. How long will this kind of reception from the public will last ? Poor guy. Well deserved, or not ?

    Hoping to see Federer in the Asian tour.

    Federer is only playing in the Shanghai Masters. Is there any chance of him getting a wild card either from Tokyo or Beijing ATP 500 tournaments ? With Fed being out of the top 4, the Big tournaments appear to be lopside. I know he's on a slump, but surely he can get out of it. He can surely...

    US Men's Clay Championships in Houston - General Discussion Thread

    It appears that Houston is loaded with very good clay courters this time around. Very seldom you'll see this tournament with star players. Obviously, the Big 4 are not here nor are the rest of the top 10. But youll still see big names for a mere 250 clay court tournamen in the USA. I'm actually...

    Who wants Nole, Roger and Rafa to be in the same half of the draw in French Open ?

    With Nadal defending so many points from the clay court swing, he will most probably be rank number 5 by FO, with Ferrer holding the number 4 spot. Murray does not have much to defend, losing last year in the Quarters of Monte Carlo and Barcelona, and losing in the 4th round of Rome Masters...

    Will 2013 be the best year of Djokovic ?

    It appears that his 2011 form is back. And with Rafa not into form; Delpo,Tsonga and Berdych being owned by him; PinkFeddy aging, it appears that the Juggernaut that is Djoker will have a 2011 yet again, probably better. Murray might be the only obstacle in the horizon. Djoker is scary good...

    Azarenka and Federer, 2 peas in a pod

    Both are great champions of the game we love. But sadly, in their utmost desire to win, they have shown their offensive nature to the public, probably their true colors. One is a cheater, the other a sore loser. What a shame !!
