Another great point! i like Kukushkin's tennis. He has alot of control and structure over points and doesnt tend to just ballbash but when put under pressure he is capable of some nice angles on the FH and BH side. That BH to hold was excellent!
Yeah, he is doing ok so far. Though I think he tends to get too excited and go for too much at times.

Watching Nadal vs Kukushkin is just like watching Perfect Cell vs Vegeta right after cell has absorbed android 18.

Kukushkin is doing well so far but his service games are not THAT solid that he is unlikely to be broken. Its less serve focus than most players and its his high level of point contruction that is keeping him in this. He needs to have more attack on Rafa's serve if he really wants to win this because i smell alot of breaks when his level inevitably drops.

What a contrast compared to yesterday. Those Nadal haters only showed up when Rosol was pounding Nadal. Today we are only up to page 6 lol.

Would be hilarious if Nadal lost to another nobody. What would that say of his 2 Wimbledons? Luck of the draw and darkness. 2010 and 2008 respectively. Nobody loses a slam final to Berdych. LOL. 2008 was dark..

He isnt going to lose today. Only really paranoid Nadal fans are legitimately concerned, Kukushkin is playing well but he's doing nothing on Rafa's serve and its just a matter of time before he crumbles and gets fed a bakery product.

This match is boring. Rafa has 0% chance of losing to this guy. He has no power and no return. He can hit the ball consistently (until he tries to hit over 70 mph), but at some point, Nadal will get into the groove of things and reel off some lopsided sets to finish the match.

Kuku already seems deflated and resigned to his fate. I feel a flurry of UEs emerging from his racquet in this TB.

What why? He was one of favorite posters even if not a fan of the bull.:(

Damn what did he do? :confused: I hope is temporary
I dont know what specifically it was that got him the ban but you know what he was like. I think he just pushed it too far with his trolling and started insulting people a bit too harshly and got reported. Alot of the big haters got banned recently, seems the forum is cracking down on it. I hope its temporary too but im sure he'll come back under the guise of another name eventually.
