 stop adding laugh emoticons as though you're joking...you may pretend you are but are even more vehement than I...

 I asked where Nadal broke the rules...you answered...I asked if he also bounced the ball too many times...where oh where in any of that was there an indication of not knowing the rules...

but of course, you're joking...LOL



You asked what rule he broke. Only someone who lives under a rock with regards to following the sport would need to ask that because it's a well known complaint regarding his play over a long period. But yes, pretend you knew about it after the fact and I will give you very well deserved

And don't tell me what I should and shouldn't include in my posts. Another well deserved just for you.

I ended up approx +22 units on the Aus open. He first 4 or 5 days were a bonanza. After that things evened out a little and it was up and down but still trending up.

Since then I've bet on the Maui (final was Monday morning), Burnie & Dallas challenger events (level below the ATP world tour) as well as WTA events in Taipei and St Petersburg. Davis Cup round this weekend as well may see a few bets if I had time.

I will bet basically every week as the season only has a break between mid-November and the start of January. Next few weeks will see indoor tournaments in Europe, hard court tournaments in Nth America & Clay tournaments in Sth America. Aim will be to make some profit over this time before Indian Wells & Miami in March which are basically Grand Slams (they have 96 player fields for men & women) on hard courts also so hope for similar results to the Aus Open.

didn't see Stan but watching Nishikori it was pretty obvious that it was a genuine back injury


Federer had a genuine groin injury. There is no doubting that. Nishikori had treatment in the rooms and then later courtside, no different to Federer.

I don’t understand the problem people have with it.

Nadal actually bends the rules at times and nobody seems ro care.


 you keep spouting this as part of your defense of your idol, Federer...

 what rules has he bent?

 



Supposed to be 30 seconds in between points. Nadal regularly takes much longer and is rarely penalised.


 even more laughable...next you will say he bounces the ball longer...

 puleeease !!




Stop embarrassing yourself jujuno. You clearly have little idea of the game. It's clear where your opinions on the subject can be discarded.


 I can guarantee I know more about tennis than anyone on here...I used to cover it...

 


Juju, I respect you, you know that, but you are as biased toward Rafa as I am to Federer.

You shouldn't guarantee that you know more about the game than others either. You may know an enormous amount, but you do not know what others on here have done.

I played the game at a high level. I am showing my age here but I played in highly ranked junior tournaments in SA for what was then known as Custom Credit state ranking points. I used to be coached by Ray Woodeforde (father of Mark). He is five years older than me, but I have practised with him at Memorial Drive.

I still play on weekends in the local comp and many of the promising youngsters I come up against would kill for my serve. I have mentioned all this in years gone by, so you know this isn't bulldust and made up on the spot.

I love the history of this sport, I remember sitting in my room as a child watching Borg win Wimbledon title after title on a tiny black and white TV.

I am not suggesting I know more than you, but I am suggesting that people involved in this thread are intelligent and knowledgeable enough about the subject not to have their opinions discarded on a whim.

Federer wins the biggest tournament of the year outside the grand slams this morning. Comfortable straight sets win over Warwrinka. Also destroyed Nadal earlier in the tournament. Fair to say he's back and up to 6 in the rankings.

Astonishing, he is having a renaissance , the Australian Open win has given him such confidence, it would be amazing if he became the dominant player in world tennis once more
Certainly has Nadal covered

Not sure he can dominate like he did in the past but no reason he can't get back to the top couple in the rankings again and win more big tournaments. Djokovic & Murray have gone off the boil the last few months so doubt they have the intimidation factor that they once did. They are a long way ahead in the rankings but will be defending a lot of points this year while Federer is basically defending none. If he were to win in Miami this next fortnight he would go to number 4. Both Murray & Djoker are not playing due to injuries so you'd have to say he will be favourite.

Final of Miami and Federer v Nadal again. Worth getting up for so far. Great first set. Fed just won 6-3 after breaking in the 8th game. Both hand had their chances.

Gets the job done in straight sets to continue an extraordinary start to the season. Now 19-1 for the year with the Aus Open & the only two Masers 1000 tournaments played in the bag. Up to number 4 in the rankings.

Interesting odds on Wimbledon- Federer 4/1: Kyrgios 18/1.

I reckon they are the only two chances. Yes, I am changing my tune.LOL

It would be typical of my long range betting exploits if she wins the French at monster odds and bombs out at Wimbledon.LOL

No real standouts in the women's section this year Tlaz, if she wins the shift from clay to grass may suit , good luck with your wager.

Kyrgios retires at Wimbledon injured in round one. Looks like it's going to be the old guys again on the men's side- Fed, Murray, Djokovic. I would love Nadal to win but that would surprise me.

Women's side- go Jelena.Confused Looks wide open.


Barty out too- that's Australia done for the fortnight.- quick and painless. Quick anyway.

Kyrgios has had injury problems for the last few months. Has withdrawn/retired from multiple tournaments. I wasn't really surprised to see him go down here. Only thing I could fault him for maybe is even turning up. Possibly should have taken a few more weeks off and gotten right for the nth American hard court swing coming up.

I would have thought an invitation would be required to play in any top tournament no matter who you are .
   Tomic's statement that he will play for 10 years and be wealthy enough and doesn't care about winning ,   would be seen as unacceptable.
   Surely his attitude has to be better than that in a sport that is attached to the gambling dollar,   big time.

We've got a prize pair in Kyrgios and Tomic- famous for being lazy trainers and tanking matches.LOL Kyrgios said he has tanked 8 out of his last 20 tournaments- I don't think it's that much- he's bragging- bragging about tanking- strange days.Confused

Qualification to the 128 spots in grand slams is automatic to the top ranked 104 players in the world, so while he maintains a ranking he is in if he wants to be there.

Daddy issues with this bloke still I think. Not uncommon in professional sports or tennis specifically.
