    Re: The Tennis Thread

    So after Djokovic loses to Dimitrov, Federer loses to Nishikori. I hope this is a wake up call for both of them. Pretty much Nadals tournament to win at this point lol.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    This is why people dislike upsets i guess...neithe Dimitrov or Nishikori could back up their big wins.

    Murray lost to Berdych in straight sets, who then fell to Wawrinka. So we've got Nadal vs Wawrinka for the men's final and S. Williams vs Sharapova for the women's.

    A little gossip for you; Sharapova is dating Dimitrov. Lucky bastard.

    She used to be engaged to NBA player Sasha Vujacic, but after he started playing in Turkey, she ditched him.

    So Serena takes the women's title; in straights sets 6-1 6-4 and increasing her record against Sharapova to 15-2. I read something on Eurosport that pretty much sums up how well I think Serena's played in this tournament.

    Quote Quote:
    An outstanding week for Serena extending her ownership of Maria, Madrid and the NO 1 ranking. She has shown a great display of the variety in her game and why she OWNS the WTA. A massive slap in the face for the haters, doubters, confused and poor clay court analysts.
    Take nothing away from Sharapova though, I think against any other player, she would've come up on top.

    Yeah, but Serena always beats Sharapova, apart from that Wimbledon Final with the umpire who incorrectly awarded Sharapova a point during a tiebreak.

    Definitely Williams owns her. I feel for Sharapova sometimes about that, she could have so many titles if it wasn't for Williams. The best she can do is to capitalise in any event where Serena falls short and play her best when they face off.

    I don't. I don't like Sharapova and the fake smile and everything she puts on. She's also not Russian. She's lived in America for like 15-16 years.

    I'm an American though, so I support Serena.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    I can't stand either williams sister. That is all lol. I also don't believe in supporting a player because they're from your country, Roddick was the only American player i liked.. I can't stand Isner and he bores me to tears. Harrison needs to work on his demeanor on court, fish is on his way out,Querrey is okay i guess. Imo nationalism has no place in the sport outside of davis cup and the olympics. These guys/girls should (and probably do) play for themselves first and foremost.

    Every player puts on a fake PR personality for the press, this isn't limited to Maria lol. Djokovic is probably the fakest of the fake despite me liking him. As for her not being russian...nishikori has been here for half his life. Tommy Haas is actually a US citizen now,Djokovic doesn't live in Serbia,and a good chunk of the French players live in Switzerland.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Well, I have to say that Roddick and Serena are the only American tennis players I've ever supported. I wasn't really being nationalistic there.

    Isner represents a brand of tennis I don't support.

    Maria's pretty bad with it though. Djokovic is entertaining.

    Yeah, but a lot of players train in America.

    Haas isn't a German anymore? Lame.

    ---------- Post added at 12:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:19 PM ----------

    It was against Wawrinka though. How Wawrinka even got to the final, I don't know.

    ---------- Post added at 12:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:21 PM ----------

    Oh, well, Haas has dual citizenship now, so it's not like he's no longer German.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    My point was just that a lot of players don't really live in their country anymore lol, or spend huge chunks of their life here. Nishikori mentions moving here at a really young age and learning english as he went along haha. Sorry for the assumption, I just know some people who will support any american player even if they're not particularly worthy of it lol.

    Wawrinka getting there doesn't surprise me, he's a good player but he wasn't beating or even getting a set off Nadal tbh lol. Hopefully Rome is more interesting

    Yeah, but not all of them go, "I'm Russian and that's so important to me, even though I haven't lived there since I was a young child."

    Wawrinka's not great on clay though, so it did surprise me.

    The only thing that matters is Roland Garros.

    ---------- Post added May 15, 2013 at 06:00 PM ---------- Previous post was May 12, 2013 at 12:52 PM ----------

    Murray gets injured today and considers himself a doubt for Roland Garros.
