Federer has the two Zverev brothers or Roanic and djokovic before the final.

er, Tomic beat Zverev 63 62 yesterday. You think Fed will have trouble
with a guy Tomic crushed?

First it's Mischa, second Tomic is a Wimbledon champion based on Whisper expertise :)

She won't go to jail but this may impact her.

There is nothing remarkable just overhyping one aspect of Henin's game.
 
Best one handed backhand from a female tennis player in the last 25 or 30 years, yes. but there were a lot of great single handed backhand from many male tennis players include Lendl, Edberg, Becker, Sampras, Stich, Korda, Kuerten and now Stan and Federer. I just don't see how Henin's backhand put her above these crowd of single handed backhand players. As a matter of fact I don't see Stan stand out as having the best single handed backhand in the last 25-30 years.

Gasquet proved he's got the best single handed backhand in the past 25 years when he and Stan had that "backhand off" at Wimbledon a couple
of years ago.
 
You're only saying that about Henin cos you're very very very sexist! <roll eyes>

Whatever big mac or whopper. I don't think Henin's backhand stand out against other one handed backhand from a lot of male players that also had great single hander.

Henin backhand was quite erratic. When on fire she was fun to watch, but it could go off the boil in important matches
PeteWasLucky <waleed.khedr@gmail.com>: Jun 30 05:35AM -0700

Henin needed time to swing on her backhand. Looked great on clay and okay on HC. But didn't help her on grass.

You sound like you're getting very angry? Perhaps it's dawning on you
just how much time/energy you've wasted on a false idea?
 
Look, you just have to accept it & move on with the rest of your life.
Lesson learned.

Try & think logically. Don't you think all this would have been exposed
years ago & be a commonly accepted view rather than that of minority
crackpot deniers?

He doesn't have to accept it and his life is moving very well.

No Whisper, not everything gets exposed, specially when it's meant not to be uncovered.

If Nadal does not win this Wimbledon you would admit you are the dumbest in RST.

And if Rafa beats Fed we'll hear crickets from the naysayers - & no
apologies.

If he doesn't we know your excuses already.

> Any ideas?
 
Ivanisevic said exactly that, maybe he's clueless too, like bob?

So certain extremely fit women with great forehand like Moody and Graf can beat lower ranked men... Just not fat arse Serena

Hello,
 
The draws are out for Hops's former contest:
http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/draws/index.html?event=MS
http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/draws/index.html?event=LS
 
Same rules, predict the winner/finalist for both men and women. Scoring
allocation:
 
Winner Pick is Winner 6 points
Finalist Pick is Finalist 4 points
Winner Pick is Finalist 3 points
Finalist Pick is Winner 3 points
 
Picks must be from different sides of the draw. If they are from the
same side, only the Winner pick will be allowed.
 
If one of your picks is in danger of pulling out of the event you can
select an alternate pick, but the alternate is only valid if the
original pick withdraws before their first match.
 
All entries will be listed here:
http://home.pacific.net.au/~davidw/tennis/contest/rst_2017sp_WM.html
 
Entries must be posted before the first ball is struck in London on Monday.
 
Good luck.

No surprise there, Hewitt was at peak of his game before they split. Even top male players had difficulties against Hewitt in the early part of that decade.

I'm rather suspicious of the sudden extended dips in form and the aging
thing. They might be coming from the same vial.

Wouldn't care what the world thinks if I were you, a lot of Europeans eg.in France don't like the USA simply cos they're jealous of your success and that you've shown capitalism to be the best system, whereas they prefer the idea of socialism.
