Fed still struggling after the long rain delay, he broke back to cut the first set lead to 4-5, but then was broken right back and is down a set (it's on Tennis Channel now).
Yeah I remember it is always so much better when people ignore all the relevant stats, and simply let personal opinions drive rankings.
they are 1-2 on the season. Their record in the last 2 years as a team is 10-6. The 2 Wimbledon events in 2012 are the only events they have won as a team since Paris in 2010.
Where do you suggest they should be ranked?
Errani's team is out now (probably because she has focused on her singles), but they have 2 Grand slam Championships, plus a final in the 3rd entering this?
#2 seeds have 8 championships and 2 majors won since the last time the williams sisters won
Even the #15 seeds (the lowest seed), have won 3 titles since the last Williams sister win
Should you piss off every other competitor to rank them?
Monfils has been playing really well at the open this year. After watching him on Sunday when I was at the open I cannot say I am surprised he is leading this match.semsox said:wtf Roger

But do you really mean this? It's not like Federer has been playing poorly, and the gap between the top 3/4 and everyone else is large.
