Lendl vs McEnroe - which one is greater? - 27 new
-------------------------------------------------
...A case of certain fans being less objective than the players themselves.
Both McEnroe and Sampras were willing to admit to limitations that some die-
hard fans will still deny. It's like Elvis fans denying that he was fat and
fucked up and died while trying to take a shit. Reality can really interfere
with fantasy. - Wed, Oct 27 2010 7:11 am

Rusedski d. Sampras 6-4, 6-2 in final. - 5 new
----------------------------------------------
...I'm hungry for more Whispo gigglers. The fact is that the seniors tour is
not an exo. It may not be the players at their competitive prime but the
scores tend to reflect the result of a genuine competitive match. If you think
a player can walk out of retirement and beat the best guy in the world take a

Has no-one commented on the fact that Muster has made a return to the tour? -
1 new
-----
...It does illustrate the difference between tennis as it is played now
compared to the 60s and early 70s. I'm sure that the top players could still
win a few matches as Connors did in his early 40s if they would continue to
play on the tour throughout their 30s. If Muster for example had remained on
the tour and not - Wed, Oct 27 2010 7:35 am

Chris Chase equates Sampras and Federer - 8 new
-----------------------------------------------
...That is the disadvantage of living or dying by the serve. Pete was really
savvy and won so many sets with a single strategic break of serve. The
problems started when he'd encounter somebody who's serve wouldn't crack under
pressure or a guy like Hewitt who would return everything. Then the pressure
gets placed right back on - Wed, Oct 27 2010 8:05 am

Coco News: Coco v. Schiavone? - 1 new
-------------------------------------
...HmMmm, I hadn't caught that the Fed Cup final is going to be in _San Diego_,
which means that South Californian Coco will be bringing a heavy home-team
crowd in and increasing home-court advantage. Although I don't think that was
determining in her choice as final team member (her big jump in rank this year

Sampras vs Agassi 2001 US final - 8 new
---------------------------------------
[link] For all the ribbing of Whisper, he does sort of have a point about game
speed. Everything about the game is better now (save volleying) - players are
fitter, faster, stronger....just overall better tennis players. However, check
out the speed and low bounce of the ball above. Every time I watch - Wed, Oct

sampras opponents - 5 new
-------------------------
...You're missing something here. Match up issues are important. If you are
Federer you want guys like Roddick to be giving everybody else trouble for
many years. The worst thing for a top player is lose his bitch. An ideal bitch
only rolls over for you and bites everybody else. - Wed, Oct 27 2010 9:25 am

These guys sell info about fixed matches - 4 new
------------------------------------------------
Such is the state of tennis at the challenger level now that these guys will
sell you information about fixed matches so that you can profit. Only saving
grace for tennis is that these are low level events. Even so, many recent
complaints that match fixing is occurring at current Russian ATP events. - Wed,

Technical question - landing on the right foot after serving (for a right
hander) - 5 new
---------------
...point across. ...That is not my issue at all. For some reason, Fed makes
mistakes against Nadal that he does not make against any other player. It's
clear that Nadal unsettles Federer. And it shows up in the crucial points.
Pelle just highlighted that aspect taking 1 game from the AO 2009 F. There
were similar situations in the Wim 2008 F too, the 2006 Rome F - Wed, Oct 27

Vienna: Haider-Mauer d Muster 6-2 7-6(5) - 2 new
------------------------------------------------
...That's BS. I am 45 and I can play 2 consecutive days for 2-3 hrs each day.
A month ago I played 3 matches in 2 days. And this was on hard courts. If you
train well, eat well and rest well you can play.And, I don't have the perks
that pro players have like getting massages after every match, etc. Only
physical issue I am facing now is worsening - Wed, Oct 27 2010 10:44 am

McEnroe's "You can't be serious" Was the ball in? - 6 new
---------------------------------------------------------
Lots has been written about McEnroe's Wimbledon tantrum -- "You can't be
serious" in 1981. I know this seems like an obvious question, but who was
right about the call -- McEnroe or the umpire? Presumably, modern technology
has settled this question. Thanks, Paul Epstein - Wed, Oct 27 2010 11:33 am

Doha day 2 - 2 new
------------------
Surely this day is better than yesterday... Zvonareva d. Azarenka 7-6 (4) 6-4.
Good stuff. First set particularly, Azarenka was pressing all the time and
running Vera ragged. Somehow Zvonareva clawed her way back to the match and
took the 1st set. In the second, Azarenka crumbled a bit and tiebreak was not
needed. New & improved Vera didn't even cry, though it seemed - Wed, Oct 27
