Time for the egg to hard boil
Can't wait for the draw it's been sooo long we didn't have the Big 4 in proper shape for a big tournament, when was the last time ???
Add Stan the Man to the equation...
Add Dimi, Gulbman, Cilic, LaMonf´, TBerd all onfire...
This is what I'm talkin' about...will be very hot in IW/Miami this year !!!
When is the drawwww, tomorrow ?
Relax Fed fan. I'm just playing with Chanwan. The arrogant Fed fans started it with all this cupcake draw BS for Rafa. ......and the draw did not even start yet.
As for him winning it, is by no means a certainty. He may not even reach the 2nd round .....nobody knows. I'm just throwing bull crap for bull crap with some arrogant Fed fans.
Anyone watched Sampras-Agassi btw?
Actually, I merely responded to the arrogant Rafa fan with the same bull crap:
To which I responded: My pick is Rafa.
Terenigma is a Murray fan.
Makes no difference who does it. He still "attacked" (for lack of a better word) Fed for no apparent reason, so naturally a Federer fan responded.
While I'm on the topic, it seems a couple of these Murray fans have gotten a bit touchy lately in regards to Roger. Is there any reason for this generally because I can't seem to find any.
Chanwan have you noticed over the last few days that sweetie pie is back? :lol:
You can see him drooling over her. :twisted:
Here we go, the women's draw is out. The men's should start any minute now.
The men's draw isn't due out until tomorrow:
I noticed as many have said on this board in the past, Nadal has never defended a title outside of clay. I for once, would like to see Nadal try and defend a title outside of clay. Starting with this one. This is a winnable one to me. Cincy and Montreal are harder since they're faster correct?
Is this a joke? It was supposed to be today.
Men's draw wont be out until tomorrow and that is for a fact.
You sure ? It's not just your opinion is it ?
ATP draw is tomorrow at 3 PM Pacific time (http://www.bnpparibasopen.com/Events/Calendar-of-Events.aspx)
I think if their is one he can defend this is it. Bottom line is if he manages to defend this and picks up some points in Miami there is no one who will catch him this year as far as the #1 ranking. On the other hand he has had his butt handed to him in this tournament by some odd players in the past.
I have voted
This forum is in dire need of a 'like' button.
Why is Wawrinka missing in poll options?!
I haven't heard of Wawrinka post-AO. Just a guess but maybe he's having psychological issues. I noticed he was going crazy in the AO final (not just when Nadal was off the court, but also in the 3rd and 4th sets). Not sure if he'll play tennis again.
Lol now I KNOW you're an 18 carat troll. Thanks for just confirming it! :lol:
Guess you missed the Davis cup matches...
Anyone who tells a joke is a "troll". Noted.
That's true I did. It wasn't televised where I was at the time.
Anyone have the pre-qualifying results? They never post these. It looks like Meister won because he got the wild card in to ATP qualifying.
We'll have to wait for his first round match to see where he's at. It'll be interesting how he handles the champion mentality.
So Nadal hasn't defended a title outside clay, which other current top player has defended a title on clay?
Good. Because this will matter on any quick surface from here on out. We've already established that attacking tennis is not going to work on slow surfaces unless Roger is focused from start to finish, no dips, no lapses (which is basically difficult for any player to do). On the quicker surfaces, this will hopefully get the job done for him. Nadal can continue taking advantage of the fact that the tour favours him. But given how much even Dubai is being talked about, it is Federer's success on any quick surface that people will find most enthralling.
Robert Kendrick is listed on the IW qualy draw as "PR." What does that mean? I didn't see him in the "challenge" draw, which was won by Kosakowski (he couldn't get into qualifying?) and Nicholas Meister.
Federer has...perhaps Ferrer has defended one of the smaller clay court events?
Wow . . . he's been waiting all this time to cash in his PR? That's remarkable.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL Roger lead the poll. Federer fans are crazy LOOOOL
Precisely. And I thought that named Murray fan was a Rafa fan as they do most of the Fed-attacking (can't keep track of everyone's favorite players on these boards).
Indeed I have! And I welcomed her in the 'Why Rafa makes so much money'- or something like that thread. She hasn't responded to my courtship yet though..
The mighty James Ward is seeded 18 in qualies.
I'm surprised neither 'Zoo'13 finalists got a WC to at least the qualies. They are at least as deserving as a few young Americans on the list.
Completely agree. There are guys in the quallies that have been beaten by the zoo 13 finalists. Crossing fingers for Miami.
Meanwhile, we get to visit lovely Bakersfield.
It is the BNP Paribas Open. $50 and they're in the draw.
Good question. Have they even gotten to a final trying to defend a Clay title?
Don't follow tennis much, no?
Just to start...Ferrer just three-peated @BA; Almugro has repeated at three events...Valencia (spring clay outdoors), Acapulco (pre-HC) and Nice. Even lowly Haase won back-to-back at Kitzbuhel.
Maybe somebody else could find some more...I'm not a grinder.
Is Wawrinka actually not playing or is OP just being a troll
The guy who is giving you rash did it even before your wetdream defended his first clay title.
Life kind of sucks, doesn't it?
The competition is tougher on hardcourts which is why it is a much greater achievement to defend on that surface than on clay. As far as I know Djokovic has defended 7 titles on HC, Federer probably even more. Nadal so far? A big fat 0! :cry:
Here's an IQ test for the poasters here-
Which accomplishment is least impressive?
a) DEFENDING A HARDCOURT TITLE
b) Beating Federer 3 times at AO and beating Djokovic twice at USO
c) Winning 2 USOs and an AO
d) Winning 3 hardcourt Masters events and USO in 2013
To the stupid Federer Worshippers (not the classy regular Fed /tennis fans).........obviously it's (a)..............:twisted:
Not sure why you brought up all those options when I was merely talking about the prestige of defending a HC title over a clay one.
Ahah nothing else to add
Let's lift Wawa's shares
