Discuss anything tennis related from the players to the latest tournaments. I play tennis once and a while, love the sport.
 
Wow, not that many fans huh?
 
I don't get why no one watches the sport... I mean I only watch the majors but still... its pretty compelling stuff... even the women's side... the William's sister always draw some juice in the media... Sharapova... all those ova's... some of them are pretty hot... but women's tennis is women's tennis... its all about the men's side... and what has hurt the sport the most is that the American players suck d***... A-Rod can't get out of his own way against the top players these days... and Blake is exciting but he is WAY TOO inconsistent... and he can pretty much get blown away by any player in the world on any given match... I love watching Federer, Nadal, and this new kid Djocovic... gonna make for some more epic grand slam finals in the future... I just don't see the fire in Federer though... its just so automatic with him... he does a poor job selling himself... Nadal is too reserved off the court as well but obviously a beast when he is on it... he and Djocovic are the future really... but until we get the big time American player... it is what it is...

The men's team at UGA is consistently one of the best in the nation. They went undefeated and won the big 'un last year.
 
Did anyone see that Federer lost in the opening round of the Dubai open to Murray? I mean really, I think Fed is going to lose the #1 ranking this year.
 
Yes, he lost in the Austrailian Open. :up:
 
Wow. Odd that no one is discussing Wimbledon at all. Hell, there wasn't even any discussion about the French Open, either. Weird.

I'm glad to see a thread on tennis! I was actually coming to start one or look for one. :yay:

If Federer loses Wimbledon, he'll lose the number 1 ranking. It's going to be interesting, but the match he had today appeared to be in true "Federer Form." I really enjoy watching him and Nadal.
 
Venus just beat Serena to win Wimbledon. Her first time beating her sister there.
 
Maybe they'll have the doubles championship too!
 
Unbelieveble final!!!

Nadal was up 6:4,6:4,3:3 and had 0:40 at Federer's serve but he lost the 3 set in the tie break...in the 4 set it went to a tie-break again and Nadal had 2 match points but Federer amazingly pulled it off again.

Now it's 2:2 in the final set but there is a rain delay at the moment.

If you can,go watch this,unreal battle of will and talent.

I hate rain delays! I have been watching this match ALL DAY!!!! (Now they're talking like they might not even get to finish the match today!)
 
That was one of the most amazing and nerve wrecking tennis games i've ever watched in my life :hehe:

I was pulling for Rafa, so needless to say i'm oh so happy right now... amazing job :woot:... it must be said both players played amazing tennis :yay:
 
What an amazing match! One of the best I've ever seen...it was nice seeing Rafa win...both played tremendously though!

Wow...what a match.
 
I was terrified that entire match that Fed would pull his usual piss and make a comeback. Very satisfied with the results though.
 
What an incredible match. Those two are heads and shoulders above the rest. Rafa really has the edge now beating Federer on grass.
 
Nedal and Federer on their good days are in a different league to all the other men in Tennis. The other players really need to step their game up.

Murray has a good future ahead of him. He just needs to keep developing like he has been when his not injured. A few less drop shoots would help too.

Rod***** game is too much the same. He needs to expand what he can do on the court but I don't think thats possible at his age. His got a big serve but other mens players have overtaken him on court ability.

I liked McEnroe having a dig at Tim Henman when his voice went.
 
For those interested, but without The Tennis Channel, the 2nd round of the ATP Masters was played today. Nadl & Jokavich both made it through in straight sets. Federer, on the other hand, lost his match, 2 sets to 1, to Gilles Simon, and unseeded Frenchman. This should hurt Roger in the point standings, but probably not enough to drop him out of the number 1 spot. But, we will have to wait and see how Jokavich & Nadal finish to be sure.

Holy crap! :wow:
 
Ha ha...Upset...Take that Federer!

Too bad for Dancevic...I'm a Canadian boy.

Go Djokovic!
 
Welcome to the boards Ziggyman! :yay:
 
...Thanks TheMarx...I'm glad to be here
