rafa will also have an OG, but 7 wimbledons is tough to overcome with
2. it'd be pretty close, but both are behind fed so doesn't really
matter.

no doubt rafa is the clay GOAT.
IMO, sampras is the grass GOAT, even thoiugh fed tied his wimbledon
total. fed did it against weak grass competition and playing a non-
grass game, that's why i have to put him after sampras.
 
HC? hmmm. fed, agassi, djokovic, even sampras, seem like up there. i
might give slight nod to fed.

I thought you detested shallowness? ;) You often call me out for being too shallow and concerned with appearance and yet you make a comment like this one? Ha ha ha!

i think it's more your concern and love for money, while detesting
anyone who disagrees.

You don't like living a nice life style and people with good looks? That's NOT the impression I receive from most of your posts.

WTF does this mean? Can the guy speak English?
 
"There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign, but I can always speak for myself, and the Russians, zero," Trump told ABC News' Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.

As if the accusations are more coherent?
His reply is perfectly fitting.
 
Well said.

I believe it's more difficult to return Fed's serve than Nadal's serve because of the obvious reason that Fed has quite a bigger serve than Nadal. The difficulty is compounded when you are receiving in the dark. So I would think Nadal was at more of a disadvantage in the dark, relatively speaking.
 
One can argue the other way. A good hard server's serve is going to be hard anyway. In the dark even a mediocre server may be hard to pick.

> Shakes, it doesn't matter whether conditions are the same for both if one player has the physical disadvantage of poor night vision. Quite different than McEnroe just being a crappy wind player for example. There's a good reason that matches that extend to dusk are suspended due to darkness. But at that match, officials probably just didn't want the logistical hassles of splitting a final over two days, so they made a shady call (so to speak). End result might have been the same or different, but we'll never know. Such a shame to taint a classic.
 
Imo
not. The final way already delayed and interrupted.
 
People wanted to see the end.

i'd say the same except he's 35 so gets slack. but yes, he ducked
nadal here. he's earned that right unfortunately.

that was the 1st thing in my mind. :-)

it was. i gave the same advice the past few yrs, 1st time he took me
up.

good post: IMO if anyone beats nadal it won't be stan, djok or murray.
it'll be a relatively unaccomplished player who does fairly well on
clay only.

>> Assuming that Nadal doesn't get dusted in an early round of the FO, it might make winning the thing more satisfying if he beats Federer along the way, but from Federer's perspective, who cares about wallowing with Nadal in the dirt? Roger has bigger fish to fry in London. Maybe chips too.
 
>There's a bigger fish than calendar slam?
 
no, but i think he knew realistically winning wimbledon this year is
his most attainable really really big fish.

True. But it sure isn't the same as beating a rival at Wimbledon(the slam.)
