re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Do you think Queens and Halle should be made into 500 events now there is another Grass tournament on the calender?

You could have...
1. Stuttgart 250
2. Queens/Halle 500- Thats where the top players are likely to play
3. Eastborne 250
4. Wimbledon
5. Newport 250

Then American Hardcourt season

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Queens should be a 500 event for sure in my opinion. I still think it's shocking we only have about three or four weeks of grass court competition so aside from Wimbledon, one of them should be a little more than a 250 event. It's a great tournament too.

This tournament is now Murray's to take. He should beat Gasquet and he should beat either Ferrer or Haas. The number two shot is surely in his sights and he should move into that spot at the end of the week. What looked like a really tricky draw for Murray in Miami has really just opened up for him. He was going to face have to face all of Tsonga/Berdych/Djokovic in the quarter final, semi final and final and instead he's got Cillic/Gasquet and Haas/Ferrer. He shouldn't lose now.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Queens should be. The grass court season is a joke. It's kind of like doing one measly stretch before playing a match and calling it a warm-up in comparison to other slams. When you look at how prestigious Wimbledon too, it's even more ridiculous. Unfortunately the season dictates the schedule with the French too. There's no reason why they can't attempt to make Queens & Halle more seriously.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Gasquet could easily cause Murray problems if he plays like he did last night. He shouldn't and Gasquet tends to fall off against the elite players at the back end of tournaments but I wouldn't be shocked if it goes 3 sets. Ferrer in the Final. Murray will beat Ferrer if he gets past Gasquet though.

Serena/Sharapova and Sharapova's been serving poor all week coming off winning Indian Wells? Only one winner unless Serena plays like she did for the first 10 games vs Cibulkova. That won't happen though.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Grass will always be a big part of the tennis year though because they have arguably the most prestigious slam on grass, and that won't be going anywhere and it won't change.

I think Murray will beat Gasquet, but he might give him a few problems. If Murray wins, he'll beat Ferrer.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Murray should win the tournament. TBH i'd rather him win than Ferrer because that means Del Po doesn't fall further behind that number 5 ranking

Yea i never said anything about it being completely gone, all I said was grass season is very small compared to the other surfaces.
