Most likely, yeah. But i think he's got a good chance of beating Nadal if they meet. Nadal is coming off injurys, and hard is not his best surface. Chances are though, that Tsonga heads home in the QF's, but Semis is possible

And you never know, there could be an upset like at Wimbledon, which see's one of the top 4 go out early.

Meh, Tsonga is in an average form, not so good, so really doubt that he will make the semis. I think he has only made 2 or 3 semis and 1 final in in a slam throughout his whole career. It is possible but I don't think it will.

We will see.

It's more hope than anything. I think Quarters is by far the most realistic though. Semi's is possible if he plays well and one of the top 4 slump, but he's not on great form at the moment like you said. Hopefully though, he can get into some good form in these tournaments leading up to the US Open.

It's also interesting to see how well Del Potro will do. Coming back to form, and had a good olympics. He's also a previous winner of the tournament. It's going to be interesting.

Also, Slava told me yesterday that she will be playing at Cincy and Dallas Hopefully she can build up some momentum and confidence for the Open after that loss to Sabine at the Olympics.

Happy Birthday!!

Federer is one of the few tennis players that has been No.1 by the age above 30. Not many players has been able to do that. Does anyone know who are those players?

Re: Tennis Discussion Thread - (Olympics)

I'm thinking Agassi is one of them. Rod Laver may be another

Andy Murray likes a fast surface. He may have done better at the Aussie Open but he's still got to one US Open final. I'm also basing it not only on the US Open but on the US Open series which he tends to do very, very well in. He's won one one of Cincinnati or Toronto in the year for quite some time now so he's pretty good.

The only thing he's done more at the Aussie Open is make two slam finals, he's still made one US Open final and the semi finals before so he's not bad at all. I've said that by record the Aussie Open is his best slam, it doesnt stop that he should do very well at the US Open. He is good on the surface, he's said that himself and with the momentum he has he'll be feeling confident going into the US series.

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

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Pretty sure Murray calls the US Open his best or favourite slam too.
