> Gilles Muller beat Rafa once, but wasn't that 10+ years ago... not sure, I cannot remember the circumstances but I suspect Rafa was a teenager when it happened... someone should look it up... Regardless, Muller almost NEVER seems to come up with the goods against a top 5 guy at/in a major. I can't recall him ever upsetting a top 4 or 5 guy at Wimbledon. Can you Courty? He just sort of self-destructs, even when he's in solid playing form, he suddenly becomes this guy blasting the ball all over the place when it really matters. Like losing the mental plot becomes his go to psyche out on court under the pressure of a major.

Ok... That's 2 victories over Nadal at Wimbledon now. Both after Rafa just won the FO... Doesn't look so bad now, does he? This Muller guy? :)))

Disagree. Ace count should be a pretty good indication of court speed.

He's also unwatchable.

Querrey looks like he fell out of the fictional town of Mayberry from the Andy Griffith Show! Aw shucks!

Why should she want him to win it over Roger? Raonic isn't even a real Canadian.

I think it get to the point when Nadal faces this type of player he actually doubt his own ability and his thought process freeze, I saw that in him when he played in his third round match, this is only happened on grass .
 
Brown is not a big server at all. He beat Nadal by constantly attacking the net like M.Zverev did against Murray at this year's AO.

that you described it as a "best of 2000s" list?

That's probably how the maker of the list named it. It wasn't my opinion
that they were the best films, far from it.

You have ADD. How many movies from that list have you seen? TT and I don't remember seeing you post a number. Cut the BS and answer the question and make it snappy before Sausage Party 2 comes out and has you enthralled!

With the loss to Muller, Nadal will not be able to take over the number one spot by the end of Wimbledon. He will have to do it in the hardcourt season if he does pull it off. Djokovic still in with a chance. Murray has a lot of points from post Wimbledon last year that he will have to maintain. There may be some short lived number ones from here to the end of the year.
 
It may not move Federer up the rankings that much even if he wins Wimbledon but it will bring him close enough to have a realistic chance at number one during the hardcourt season.

If Federer wins Wimbledon he will be the real (locker room) #1... Just ask TT.

Worthy of a 2nd look. Some awesome shotmaking, also (perhaps especially) from Grigor... (Too bad he's not a very bright guy).

Why? Because all the other players hate Nadal so much? If he won all the sportsmanship awards like Federer, he wouldn't have that problem.

His slice is not up to par yet, but yes, Fed is still the favorite. However, his draw is definitely the toughest. Raonic up next, who he lost to last year. Then Djoker who he's lost the last 2 finals to... Then the final.

Cilic is in murderous form, and Querrey has impressed me as well. But Murray is probably the worst matchup of the big 4 for a big server.

He beat nadal in Wimbledon before plus how did nadal do in Wimbledon the last five or more years?
 
You know you are an idiot now?

Well done Venus, way to advance to the final 8!
