re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Murray has become more agressive since Lendl started coaching him, and is now paying the best tennis of his career. I thought Murray at the Olympics was a good watch, as he mixed defence and attack very well. At the US Open, he went more defensive. I hope he will be more agressive in the future.

I don't think it will take a MAJOR upset to get Djokovic or Federer out at RG. Yes it will be an upset, but Djokovic was almost beaten by Tsonga on Clay (Tsonga's worst surface, no doubt). Federer's worst surface is Clay, and it looks like Murrays worst surface is Clay. So If Nadal is playing bad after his injury, there is a big chance that someone else could win RG. Nadal is obviously the favourite, Djokovic would be 2nd favourite of course, but if Nadal plays poorly, then i don't see why someone like Ferrer, or Del Potro can't win it.

Tsonga could also play an amazing two weeks of tennis, and win a slam (apart from RG). We all know what Jo is capable of when he is playing well.

Of course, the big 4 are favourite, but there is a chance that someone else could step up and win a slam.

I think the final 8 is pretty much set, I mean Daivd Ferrer isn't going to lose 3 spots in one tournament.

Federer number 1 for 300 weeks. GOAT

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Nadal won't make it i think. So the top 8 are...

1. Djokovic
2. Federer
3. Murray
4. Ferrer
5. Berdych
6. Del Potro
7. Tsonga
8. Tipsarevic

If Nadal makes it with some sort of miracle it will be

1. Djokovic
2. Federer
3. Murray
4. Nadal
5. Ferrer
6. Berdych
7. Del Potro
8. Tsonga


Tsonga's win today was his 50th of the season. 50-18 for the season

Pretty crazy Nadal hasn't played a match since Wimbledon and still qualified.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

^ Roland Garros winner, Aussie open finalist, and dominates on Clay. it's kinda expected really.

Tsonga lost the first set against Berdych 6-3. No suprise because Tsonga hasn't been playing very well, and he generally struggles against other big hitters (Del Po and Soderling more so than Berdych though) He's pretty much sealed a WTF spot now anyway.

Robson lost in 3 sets to Chang 6-4,3-6,7-6. Watson beat Parmentier 7-5,6-3.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Berdych beat Tsonga 6-3, 7-6.

Berdych was the better player. Tsonga wasn't good again, and double faulted in the tiebreak. Too many errors when it mattered from Jo, and Berdych played a good match.

Del Po back next week is great news. Hopefully he can take the title and secure a WTF place.

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.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Prepare for the second set to be hardcore pushing from Murray.
