re: Tennis Discussion Thread
Confidence is what Robson needs to maintain. What she can't do with, is a heartbreaking loss that shatters her confidence (Just like what happened to Shvedova at the Olympics).
I'm making a bold prediction for next year. Someone, other than the top 4 will win a grand slam in 2013. Probs won't happen, but there's a bold prediction in all of us.
I hope we don't get a Djokovic/Murray era. I'm not particularly a fan of Murray's style of tennis. I think he has the tools to play a good attacking game, but he decides to be a pusher. Djokovic is primarily a defensive player now, so these two dominating would confirm that defensive tennis is the way to go. Thank god we still have attacking players such as Tsonga and Federer still around. I don't hate defensive tennis at all, but i'd prefer to see a mixture, rather than just defence all the time.
Pretty much this.
Berdych defeating Tsonga was pretty much expected. He's been in good form recently.
Stepanek wins the first set against Andy Murray.
