Aslans line backhand is a thing of beauty. Only Djoker has a better shot on tour right now. Harris did well to get to the final but was left she’ll shocked by the Lions raw acceleration of the ball. Top performance and well deserved title. Can’t wait to watch him again.

I know a guy who hit the ball out of the tennis court to the nearest house down the street. I bet he is also doping.
I'm sorry to break it to you but if he's doping, everyone is doping. You think Fed, Djok, Nadal wouldn't be doping if it was that easily accessible? Course they would.

I'll bet you he's doping. Suddenly hitting the ball that hard at 27?
In my opinion, doping in tennis is only relevant on the stamina and speed factors, tennis shots themselves I don't think any doping helps there since it is about technique, moving the whole body+racquet with precision, and we know doping does not give you that. Yes, power in shots has some dependence on muscle strength but it's not a deciding factor at all.

Wondering what is the opinion of others on the subject.

Ha, and I hope Karatsev sticks around, what a style of playing!

So if everyone is doping, then we’re back on a level playing field.

Thing is, so much of tennis is mental, that the physical only gets you so far. Obviously PEDs help, especially with recovery, but if you can’t figure how to win, you ain’t gonna win. Think of all the unbelievably talented players who have decent results and decent careers, but are really underachievers, considering what they are capable of.

“He was behaving for many years like a little child.

“He was a little unprofessional, late to training sometimes. Once he brought four racquets to training and three of them were broken.”

The two have been in partnership for about three years.

“I didn’t expect this for a player aged 24 or 25. If you know soccer a little bit, this is kind of behaving like Mario Balloteli?,” said Yatsyk.

“He needed a tough approach, to be very honest, if he doesn’t change he may finish with tennis.

“I used harsh words, I used tough words but in the end he had trust in me. He understood and listened. Many players wouldn’t listen, they’d just change coach, but he did. He improved and now we see the result.”
