  1. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    A ridiculous place. Fed worshippers, Nadal worshippers, the recent novak worshippers, a tiny murray sect etc. But the place pretty much came down just one group of fanatics VS another and it just got...
  2. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Player doesn't =/= Fans. I'm sure i've seen far worse than you on the tennis forum I used to frequent. Novak fans have become obnoxious since 2011. Federer and Nadal fans still are. Not going to hold...
  3. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Sounds like you need to grow up a bit.

    Idk how you can dislike Fed/call him a "prat" and then fucking support Novak and Serena who have had many unsportsmanlike/assholish incidents throughout...
  4. Sticky: [Anime] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Anime Discussion Thread [OVA vs Genius 10 Ep. 9&10]

    HS said they were making a batch w/ ALL the ovas (original 7/VS Genius 10) but it's been delayed apparently :(
  5. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. July 4th)

    I wonder if this is still a thing. It feels like everyone can play doubles on a whim these days. Especially people who were most definitely singles players (Atobe, Akutsu, now Tezuka). There's so...
  6. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. July 4th)

    Only match Ryoma played where i felt plot armor was at play was the finals...and some odd things during the Atobe match which could be attributed to fatigue (did Ryoma beat Tanhauser or not because...
  7. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. July 4th)

    Haha. Tezuka is broken is again. I feel like this says a lot actually.

    The last time these two played it was a close match. Every atobe match is in fact a close match. First time Atobe was ever...
  8. Sticky: [Anime] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Anime Discussion Thread [OVA vs Genius 10 Ep. 9&10]

    Didn't mind them being present...it gives other characters more insight into his way of thinking..and the MSers (Oishi in particular) getting along with him later on feels a bit more natural if this...
  9. Sticky: [Anime] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Anime Discussion Thread [OVA vs Genius 10 Ep. 7&8]

    I'm thinking OVAs again as well. I don't mind,they were much better quality than the anime.
  10. Sticky: [Anime] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Anime Discussion Thread [OVA vs Genius 10 Ep. 7&8]

    Glad they went out with a bang.

    Not quite, but most of it is there. They didn't animate three Asura no Shindou points (oh yeah, I really appreciate Kurobe saying something about AnS) and the...

    For people outside the US that can't use crunchy roll (forgot to take that into account)
    I found spanish subs :(. Still looking for english.

  12. Sticky: [Anime] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Anime Discussion Thread [OVA vs Genius 10 Ep. 7&8]

    So....crunchy roll will be subbing VS Genius 10. They already added OVA 1-7 to their list. You can watch them for free on crunchy roll. (just checked).

    VS Genius 10 is already there. All the...
  13. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Hahaha, i wish I was a betting man. I actually bet on Stan. He can destroy anyone when he's on fire...as he has been this whole tournament. Stan has now beaten Nadal/Federer in a slam. And Novak...
  14. Sticky: [Anime] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Anime Discussion Thread [OVA vs Genius 10 Ep. 7&8]

    Thanks for these, the OVAs were a lot more enjoyable w/o subs (even if iffy at times). I think Kite/Marui was my favorite one. 7 wasn't that bad.

    I liked 8 a lot tbh. Mu was really cool.
  15. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. June 4th)

    New respect for Byodouin. Oh, and Camus is gorgeous.
  16. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Lol. Last time Tsonga made the semis he came out flat and nervous. Stan's been here before, it's a toss up because we don't know which Stan and which Tsonga would show up.

    Last time these two...
  17. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    I don't think it was magical. It was the expected result. The only unexpected part of the match was Novak blowing that 4-4 lead, he is clearly a better player than Nadal on every surface....
  18. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    That's possible (anything is really......what if he beats Nadal but is gassed and Murray takes him out). Though Murray's point gap over everyone else is so huge it wouldn't matter too much.

    Novak...
  19. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    No, Stan redlined in that match. Nadal actually didn't play bad at all defense and offense he actually showed really good signs. The scoreline was 7-6,6-2 but that was not a straightforward 6-2 by...
  20. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    I think he is, beating him in 5 set is a different monster but.....RG is as open as it's been since Soderling knocked him out in 2009. He's going to be seeded 7th...meaning he can run into Novak or...
  21. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Nadal has lost to fognini 2x on clay this year. Maybe Novak does win RG lol

  22. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. May 4th)

    My response to this is just "sigh" lol. It's like a retcon to return things back to "who is actually better" zzz. Oh well.

    Does Fuji have problems? Or maybe the summary makes it sound funnier than...
  23. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Novak is prone to slow starts these days. Same thing happened VS berdych and he still won playing at a lower level than he did VS nadal.

    That said...methinks he finds another way to lose Roland...

    [Character] Re: real life players vs POT

    I honestly don't think this discussion gets very far...even before Kantou Kaidou was essentially nadal on crack. Echizen's twist serve has a kick like isners before all the muga and stuff. I'd say...
  25. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Novak beat Rafa 3 and 3 at Monte Carlo....no one can stop him lol.
  26. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. April 4th)

    Pros differ in what sense......aside from each country (presumably) having their own Tennis federation a pro is a pro. Level of play may differ but what else?

    Also you used EU as an example of a...
  27. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Murray made it interesting this time...the first two sets seemed tight (didn't watch..expected a beating) but Novak does the IW/Miami double for a 3rd time and a 2nd consecutive time. 7-6(3),4-6,6-0
  28. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. April 4th)

    I wonder if Tezuka would though...i don't feel like that meshes well with his style tbh. But it's possible.

    Lol, what would a glowing zero shiki serve/drop be like. Does it just create craters...
  29. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. April 4th)

    Hate to be that guy...but Siegfried is too cool a name for this guy to be fodder ;-;.

    I don't think it'll be 2on1 for long..or perhaps team Japan will actually overwhelm Bismarck and Siegfried...
  30. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. April 4th)

    I feel the same..but in the sense that, just as with that match, this is all about Fuji. I'm hoping the put up an admirable effort but lose...kind of like Seigaku VS Rikkai Kantou D-2 or Marui/Kite....
  31. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. April 4th)

    The hypest I've ever been for Fuji's existence since he played Niou.

    Fuji has always had this "calm wind motif" so I'm glad that's left intact. Pro tennis players change their game when their...
  32. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Oh, Tsonga is also returning in Miami...interesting.

    I think he choked in the 3rd set and allowed that tiebreak to happen last year too.
  33. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Yeah, higher bouncing surfaces really suit Djokovics (and especially Nadal's) game.

    Didn't realize Miami was IMMEDIATELY after lol. Qualies/1st round stuff today though. I'm most looking forward...
  34. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Minus Australia this year feels like a carbon copy of last year in a lot of ways. Federer beating Nole in dubai (Fast hardcourt) and losing in a 3 set IW final (Slow hardcourt). Dubai/Cincinatti and...
  35. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    I don't either (there's plenty...like people thinking brackets rigged fed/nole to always play in the semis to ensure a federer nadal final etc etc). I just think it's an interesting coincidence.
  36. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    He did it before...it just took a while. He came back this year in Sydney and beat Fognini (guy who beat Nadal on clay this year already). He lost his next match in two tight tiebreakers iirc and...

    I don't think the disparity between franchises centered on games VS Games based on franchises is that big a thing. In fact it should technically be easier for an anime game to sell due to preexisting...
  39. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. March 4th)

    Perhaos they'll get stomped by Germany to come back and get them later. As (imo) he should have done in OPoT when they faced Rikkai at kantou.
  40. Sticky: [Spoiler] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Spoiler Thread (Next Ch. March 4th)

    My Thoughts:
    -Everyone wants this as an opportunity to take on Koshimae. No hard feelings it seems (good).
    -Tezuka got taken off his bus and put in an antagonists spot (good).
    -The MSers and HSers...
  41. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 137 Discussion/Predictions

    Heh, Likewise. NPoT Ryoma is either off training (which is important last i checked) or the focus is on someone else. In the real world the manga has been a couple of of years long..but in universe...
  42. Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 137 Discussion/Predictions

    Sakuno needs saving...most of the SPoT Cast does not. Tokugawa is a big boy, as i said, he's not dead. He's not bed ridden. He can most certainly fight his own battles.



    He's. 12. Like lol....

    Murray winning would have been more interesting...but my pick won in the end. Murray is a contender again at least. I wonder what happens for the rest of the year. Last year Nadal made the final but...
  45. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Serena smoked her as expected. No Berdych type situation happening in this match lol.
  46. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    Rooting for Murray only because it would be more interesting. Fine with either outcome. Stan and Djokers match was very poor quality. ESPN commentators kept saying "not all 5 setters are...
  47. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    I'd like andy to win the whole thing.

    Maybe Camus will be like Gille Simon...feeding no pace shots at the players and causing them to make errors as well as frustrate them.
  49. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    I thought stan wasn't playing all that well this tournament..but he steps it up big time to the other top players. QF is good result for Kei though.
  50. [Year Round] Re: The Tennis Thread

    It's not as apparent..but Nadal, like Federer, is getting old. He said so himself (in tennis years anyway). Last year showed that the inconsistency that comes with age is creeping in.
