    Tennis 2020: There Is An I In Thiem

    Huge Fed fan and would love to see him beat Novak to capture some sort of grand slam redemption for the heartbreaking Wimbledon loss last year (though he did beat him in the ATP Finals) but Fed's not playing well at all. Needing miracles to beat unranked players that he would normally destroy...

    2017 Australian Open

    Yeah I actually thought he would have skipped Paris altogether to get ready for the big 2 especially since he doesn't have any points to defend from last years tourny. Maybe you're right that he has to play it being who he is but I am still surprised no warm up events. I'm sure he'll do some...

    Surprised he's not at least playing Rome or Madrid as a warm up.

    2017 Australian Open

    The match last night between Fed and Kyrgios was even better. Phenomenal atmosphere and sublime tennis. 3 tiebreakers with Fed finally pulling out the win. This kid Kyrgios has a big game and immense talent but has trouble keeping his emotions in check. The crowd was on him the whole night. He...

    FWIW I left my old sportsbook before football season and signed up with BetOnline and so far it's been great. Granted I haven't withdrawn any money yet so I haven't gone through that process but there lines always seem to be very competitive and I like the navigation on their website. I also...

    2015 Tennis Thread: the Nadal farewell tour?

    4-23 on break point chances. This match was very winnable for him unlike the Wimbledon final. He really did piss away this one. Hope this isn't the last we see of him in a major final.

    Incredible defense and Fed errors. That's probably it for Fed.

    Oh boo hoo. He's earned the support for an entire career of being a class act, playing the game the right way, not enticing the crowd and getting bitchy and emotional at every little thing that goes wrong. Your boy could learn a thing or 2 from him and maybe he'd have more support.

    2015 Tennis Thread: the Nadal farewell tour?

    Did anyone see Federer beat Joker in the Cincy final? Vintage Fed. Fed was the aggressor and threw a couple new wrinkles at Joker. I can't get over how effortless he still moves. His forehand looked real crisp and he seemed to be playing with a ton of confidence. Gives me hope for him at the US...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    The full Cromartie quote. Gotta give him credit on this one.   “I don’t think he should be suspended,” the Jets cornerback told ESPN Thursday when asked about Brady and his alleged role in Deflafegate. “In the rulebook, there’s no suspension in the rules. There’s only a $25,000 fine,” he added...

    I think Djokavic at least gets to Nadal's 14. If he wins the US Open he's at 10. He still has at least 2-3 years of prime play IMO. Barring injury of course, say conservatively he wins 2 titles the next 2 years and wins this years US Open he'll be at 14 (Nadal's total now). I think anywhere from...

    I'm a pretty hardcore tennis fan. I watch the majors, go to the US Open every year and try to catch some of the smaller tournaments as well. You are absolutely right that the game has changed so. The athleticism these guys display is mind blowing. The shot making is so powerful and quick. The...

    Yeah don't know why I thought 35. He'll be 34 in 3 weeks.   Here's a vine of that back hand shot.   https://vine.co/v/evmEBvv3qvW

    Amazing. 35 years old and beats Murray in straight sets. That backhand winner in that last game was insane. If he serves Sunday like he did today he'll win #18.
