re: Tennis Discussion Thread

So is Shvedova more or less like Stosur?
I also hope Potro can return to his 2009 form but I am not sure he will be able to play at that level again. I really hope he does.
As for the Mens final, however Murray faces, I think he will win. This could be the time where he finally wins a grandslam. His best shot imo. He has improved a lot.

I am surprised that there aren't many people talking about Roddick's retirement.

Yeah, i would say that the comparison you made is a good one. Both had success in doubles. Both had injurys that set them back a little (well in terms of Shvedova, quite a lot), both wear glasses, both are not mentally strong. I just hope that Shvedova can repeat what Stosur did, and win a slam in singles.

I agree with what you said about Murray. This is his best shot at wining a slam. Since getting with Lendl, he has improved a lot.

As for Roddick, Nobody seems too bothered really. Not many people are talking about it like you said. He could have gone on to have more success imo, if it wasn't for Federer.

Is their style of play the same?

Talking about retirement, when do you think Federer will retire? I have absolutely no idea.

I don't really know tbh. Shvedova varies her style of play depending on the opponent. E.G, against Serena and Kvitova, she was mainly counter punching. Against Errani, she was more offensive minded. I would say that Shvedova is primarily offensive though, as she's powerfull and got some great net play. Sam seems to have become more of a baseliner. Big difference is though, is that Sam's forehand is her strongest shot and Backhand is weakest, while Shvedova's FH is her weakest and backhand is her strongest.

As for Federer. I think h might go on for a few years yet. Like Agassi did. He's still at the top of the sport, and i think he will be for a few more years. It will be a sad day when he does retire though

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I'd say Federer will retire in 3-4 years. He'll keep going until he feels he can no longer win grand slams and his body goes "fuck this"

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I really thought going into this year that Federer would look to win the Olympic gold and retire then. He has his twins now and he's already achieved everything there is and then some, bar the Olympics, which in reality isn't that significant. I think what's changed is that he's had a better year than he would've thought, winning Wimbledon and returning to number one for example as well as some Masters series'. He's been more competitive than he was before his pretty incredible end to 2011 and that might have convinced him he still has what it takes to compete with Novak.

Personally though I don't think we'll see him go on too long now. We might get another year out of him, maybe two but anything else would be a bonus I think.

As for Roddick, he was playing like he'd already retired pretty much since he lost to Federer at Wimbledon in 2009. He's a great character but he stopped being a threat a long time ago.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Please god let Ferrer win this. It would be so meant to be if Murray wins a slam without having to play Rafa, Federer or Novak.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

^That would be really strange. I wonder which GS final was the last final not to have Djokovic,Nadal or Federer in it.

I see Djokovic winning this though
