Every tennis stadium that hosts a major tennis tournament should have a roof over the main court. This shit is annoying.

I'm really happy that Nadal has his career slam. I can't see anything negative about him.Djokovic I just don't know, there's something about him that makes me want him to always lose.

He used to quit all the time when he thought he was out of it, and it was obvious. Thats why I usually don't like him. He definitely has stepped his game up though. The Federer match was epic.

His serving routine ;)I'm happy that he won it too although I am definitely a proponent of flashier tennis than he usually plays.

I think you quoted a spammer and your post along with the spammer was deleted.

oh my bad. Someone asked about Nadal and Federer or something, I didn't realize it was a spammer posting at all. Maybe the ATP is trying to take over fcp lol.

Nadal is 3 away from tying Federer.

I might have to start watching tennis again.

I've been trying to get back into men's tennis but I think the main problem for me is that none of the USA guys have a shot. I use to be way into Agassi and Sampras. Nadal definitely has a shot though if he can stay healthy to reach Federers record. Other guys are getting better so if you are into it it's fun. For example I think Wawrinka is taking it to the Murray, Nadal, Djokovic level. More guys are improving.

Yeah. I think the fact that there's a legitimate chance of someone already at least tying Roger's record is a testament to how well some of these guys are playing right now. It's funny how Roger seemed to stop doing so well after breaking the record. I don't know enough about the sport to know if he doesn't care as much, or if he just got burnt out.

I think it is a combo of both him getting a little older and some of these other guys just getting really good. Djokovic and Murray were around for awhile before they became threats.

Federer's record since he won his last major pretty much mirrors other all time greats in terms of age and level of performance. It's really really hard to stay on top in tennis especially today when the game is far more athletic than it ever has been in the past.

The last 6 or 7 years we have really been treated to some great tennis. Federer considered to be the best player ever. Nadal is the best player on clay courts ever and this year hasn't lost a match on hard courts and Djokovic who has the best return of serve in the history of tennis. People think that having a big serve is the best shot to have but it's actually the return which is more important.
