Had points to lead 4-0 too, then led 3-1 in 3rd before losing last 5 games.
 
No killer instinct by the looks.

This was a tough one to pick - a field of chokers. I personally went
with experience so Halep v Stosur, which may have happened had Ostapenko
not entered as she beat them both in 3 setters.

I went to the theatre yesterday and overslept and missed the final. Glad to see Ostapenko win. Halep is a retriever and I don't like those kind of players

I hope you at least went to a must-see movie. "Captain Underpants" perhaps?

Who gives a shit. She is a poor version of Sanchez Vicario just like how Radwanksa is a poor version of Hingis and Wozniacki is a poor version of Sabatini

Me too. I think she's pretty satisfied with her life overall, making
millions etc. Doesn't make for a great tennis champion though.

Being really good in the second set - the mark of a champion.

Rafa has taken the pressure off by saying 9 is his fave number anyway,
but it may become 10.

very good find. however, still ahonkan's opinion.
 
the fact nadal got a little irriatated with rosol doesn't really speak
to if he's a humble champ or not IMO. rosol purposely knocked over his
water bottles and intentionally jumped around during nadal's serves.
poor sportsmanship IMO. and yes, nadal lost a little of his cool.
remember, fed yelled "shut up" to djok's parents and everyone praised
it, so i don't see how it's much different.

Everyone didn't praise it. Only the sensible people. :) I don't see the two events as the same at all. Rosol countered gamesmanship with gamesmanship. His was just more overt. Federer responded to disruptive spectators that happened to be his opponent's family.

were djok's parents taunting fed, or just being too loud in support of
their son? either way, it appears they either intentionally - or
unintentionally - didn't know how to behave at a tennis match. fed's
complaint was fine by me, but note he didn't just let it slide.
 
flip side, rosol came in with an intentional gamesmanship approach to
the match, touching his opponent's gear on his own side of the net and
dancing during service motion. very bad sportsmanship. nadal's
response was a little shoulder bump. that was nadal's version of "shut
up."
 
just trying to be consistent: if nadal is to be chastized for becoming
angry at an opponent displaying poor sportsmanship at wimbledon, rule
should apply to fed too at monte carlo.

But Fed never projected himself as Humbalito. He has always been a straight shooter. So why judge them on the same yardstick?

Agreed. Most importantly she doesn't seem to have the mind of a
champion. Every time she got into position to finish it off she froze.

Mentally Halep is weaker than Woz & Radwanska.

I'll tell you who is "done."
 
That would be Graf, who is 47 and retired a good 18 years ago!
 
That's someone who is ancient history, and ain't gonna be winning
no mo' Slams!
 
Serena will pop that baby out, and be back on the court winning
yet more Slams in no time!
 
She has already passed Graf, but now Margaret Court is in trouble!
 
:)

It is sad, but jeezus, so many of these actors seem to die at 85, 90,
even older so hard to feel that sorry about it. It's an easy life, if
you become famous.

Maybe he can focus more on the cold eyes from now on.
