    I'd lay you anything you want on Clijsters. Ain't in good shape.

    Novak, Murray & Tsonga are the one for me in the men's, & Kvitova in the ladies

    Good luck to Jarkko Nieminen in the final against Benneteau tomorrow.

    Only one win from 11 finals......so hopefully he wins the Sydney International title.

    Judy Murray's Fed Cup team beat Austria to move into play-offs

    It will only be a World Group play-off match but it's real progress (It's been 19 years since GB last played a World Group match).....Mama Murray must be proud :)
    What a confidence boost for them all after a slightly shakey start to the year.

    Congrats girls [​IMG]

    Federer at his classless best. Says Wawrinka wasn't as good as him in the doubles and also that he shouldn't have lost the opening singles match. This is why there are many who don't like him. He's a horrible loser.

    Oh and the GOAT Federer lost in 4 sets to Isner..on Clay. That's way more embarrassing than Stan losing his singles match.

    He really said that? You've got a link to a press conference video?

    He was horrible in the doubles match and completely embarrassed himself in the last game. Isner deserved to win aswell.

    Saw that match with Isner, couldn't believe my eyes. Can't believe Jim Courier is the coach of the US Tennis team.

    Great play by Roger all week. He is truly playing very well right now; only lost 1 match since September I believe (other than the embarrassing Davis Cup). I think if he can keep this going he has a great chance to win a major this year which at age 30 would be a great achievement.

    And i've watched the Murray vs Garcia-Lopez match this morning :houllier:

    Very disappointing result and performance from Murray, but Garcia-Lopez didn't win the match........Murray lost it (I mean 34 UE says everything).

    It's no excuse for the Murray loss but i hope he hasn't the Coachella Valley virus.

    I'm still hopeful that the "Three and a Half Men show" is over at the end of the year and we're having a "Top 4".

    Murray has now a long break before the tournament in Miami.....that should help him for Miami.
    I'm tempted to put some money on Murray will reach the final in Miami.

    If Murray loses then you're always here :rolleyes:

    Isner can feck off with his anti-tennis. Djokovic must have won more than 80% of the rallies that were 3 shots or longer. Hope either Federer or Nadal smash him in the final when his serve doesn't gift him the match like it did tonight.

    What a match that was! Isner has now beaten Federer and Djokovic this season. I used to be of the opinion that he's extremely one dimensional but he's made improvements to his game this year. Become a much better returner as well.

    Djokovic doesn't look as good this year as he did last season. No where close..

    Oh and Djokovic is going to struggle with his ranking points now. He's defending an insane amount of points from last year and has already dropped 1k points in the last 2 weeks.

    Djokovic played as well as he played last year in that 2nd and 3rd set, he really played well. He hit some absolutely spectacular shots and returns. Isners serve won this one for him, he hit more than 5 serves in this match over 140 m/ph which was this years tournament record so far. In the last set tie-break he didn't miss a single 1st serve. Not to mention him hitting around 75% of his 1st serves throughout the match, most of them between 135-145 m/ph.

    If it wasn't for Djokovic's amazing ability to return serves and his otherwise great play in the 2nd and 3rd set the match would have finished earlier.

    And the Federer-Nadal match is now delayed, feck off. I'm off to go out, get even more drunk, then puke and wake up lying in bed next to an ugly fat girl. Bye!

    Djokovic of last year would have found a way of winning the match. The Djokovic of last year wouldn't have thrown away that first set at 5-4. He's still better than everyone else on court but the gap has definitely reduced this year. He wasn't at his best throughout the Aussie Open and Nadal really should have punished him there and then after that he wasn't at his best last week or at IW now.

    And yes Isner is a hard player to play against when he's hitting 1st serves with such a high percentage but then Djokovic would have won this match if he'd held on in the first imo. He threw that away. And tie breakers against Isner are always pretty much impossible to win. Nadal lost two sets..on clay..at RG in the first round to Isner. But yes while Isner relies heavily on his serve, his overall game has definitely improved a lot. Better returner and really improving his serve and volley.

    Great performance by Roger against Rafa in terrible conditions. Roger looked like he still has his cold but for once held his nerve against Nadal and stuck to the game plan and actually executed it. I hope Roger can beat Isner tomorrow.

    Federer destroyed Nadal today. He was the better player in difficult conditions but I'll take these defeats in Masters tournaments as long as Nadal continues to win their matches in the Slams.

    Yes he did throw that first set away. Incredibly stupid challenge when he was serving for the set aswell. I just think it's a pity he didn't win it because it would be great to see him against Federer tomorrow if he could have continued with his play from the 2nd and 3rd set yesterday.
