Nope. This isn’t beach volleyball.
Nope, this IS tennis.
Again, in a surface using a shot that's been used and has been effective since clay was used to play TENNIS.

Also, that argument is devoid of logic as well, it's like saying that a smash isn't tennis because it seems like a shot used in badminton.

You not only do not know basic things about tennis, but your basic logic is pretty weak as well, wow.

Didn't you love the fake news of Novak storming out the other day after bullying the organizers to suspend the match and without waiting to see if the match would be called? The lengths some of these people will go...
Yeah we now have the right to just respond with "STFU" if any of them reply to us. lol. Frauds.

Nadal's got it in the bag
Imagine...Thiem is supposed to be the best on clay (after Nadal)...and he still barely made a match of it.
He didn't play a bad match....could probably beat all the others....but nowhere close to beating Nadal

Tennis sold it's soul for that AO17 final ... how has almost every final since been one of the worst matches of the tournament?

Sometimes I wish Nadal would just retire. So boring watching him win this every bloody year. Would really like to see somebody else win it for once.

Doesn’t matter. It’s a surface that allows cheap plays like moonballing.

It’s not tennis.

There’s a reason why RG is the worst of the slams too.

Thiem is mentally fatigued, not physically. Nadal is too intense for a bit too long in these kinds of matches
I think it's connected. I never understand why people say a guy is mentally tired but not physically (no offence). Physical tiredness should in theory lead to mental tiredness and maybe even vice versa, though I have no statistical evidence of this theory.

Isn't it? I thought Fed could be the #2 seed if he won Halle and Nadal didn't pick up any points.
Eh, I could be wrong. From what I've read, if/when Nadal wins the title here he's #2 seed for Wimbledon no matter what Fed does.
 
I personally think Nadal and Djokovic will both tie or pass Fed unless he somehow finds a way to stay a moving target.

The tour is just not convincing me otherwise. RAFA not even at his best today and it’s still been pretty straightforward.

As for Egg he is the favorite in every other slam for the conceivable future.

Prepare for squeaky bum time at Wimbledon

With Thiem I get the feeling that he is at least trying to get back. Never had that with Fed. That last FH DTL of Ned was ridiculous.

Tbf, @VaporDude95 has probably forgotten more about tennis than you've ever known, judging from some of your posts in this thread.
