re: Tennis Discussion Thread

And Federer does withdraw from Paris. Wise decision.

Serena def. Sharapova 6-4,6-3. No doubt the best womens player atm. She wasn't great today but still managed to win in straights

Yeah it is a good decision, he was probably going to lose the No.1 ranking anyway. Now he can concentrate on the WTF.

Serena winning was pretty much expected, without a doubt she is the best women's tennis player atm. She is a beast.

Del Potro/Ferrer/Serena treble at 5.6

Caught the Serena replay. The gulf between her and anyone else is incredible. Sharapova was playing well and still got humbled. Total annihilation of Sharapova's second serve and only dropped 3 points on her serve in one game. I think she's only lost 1 set since Wimbledon right?

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

She lost to Kerber, but that may have been a tank. Needless to say, she's a beast (like you said Samoon). Sometimes it's like she is completely dismissive of her opponents ability.

Ever since the victory over Shvedova at Wimbledon, she's played awesome. She faced an early exit at RG, and struggled in the first few rounds at Wimbledon and could have possibly been beaten there. Zheng (i think it was Zheng or Zhang)and Slava pushed her and could have beaten her. But after that victory over Shvedova, she became a beast (with he exception of the 2nd sets against Radwanska and Azarenka). The Olympics run was one of the most dominant runs i have seen.

I'm looking forward to the World tour finals. Should be good. It's indoor, so players like Del Potro, Tsonga (he should qualify now), and Berdych will have more success than they would outdoors. So the field will be a lot closer. Federer is great indoors, and defensive players hopefully won't be benefited by slow courts. I don't think i can definately pick a winner here.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It'll be interesting to see how far the 8 guys going to London will go in Paris with the O2 in mind. Federer already dropping out isn't a surprise. The scheduling is so stupid, just a day after the Paris final. Last year a week was better but still not ideal.

2 places aren't confirmed yet (mostly due to Nadal dropping out), so i guess Tsonga, Tipsarevic, Almagro and the others will try book their places in Paris.

Having a masters before the WTF is pretty stupid. They should move Paris back a week or 2 and have some 250's or 500's where Paris is, so the top guys get a rest for London while the other players get to play the 250 or 500.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Tsonga will probably qualify and the last spot for the WTF will be fought between Tipsaveric, Almagro and Gasquet.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Jo is in action today against Bennetaeu (might have spelt it wrong). Don't know if Jo will do anything here, but i think he should definately go for it. It's in France, and i expect some big names to pull out or tank at some stage.

In fact, i think Nole may be next because he's got the YE no.1 ranking, so he's not really fighting for anything here.
