    I don't think there's a set of tennis players i hate more than the Williams sisters.I can't decide which one i hate more.Plus i wanted Henin to do well at the start of tournament,so her losing to Serena makes it even worse. Henin is a class act though.This was just the warmup.I expect her to...

    You know what i would like? Murray winning a grandslam.Like,FINALLY.Heck i'd even be happy if Hewitt or Roddick won.So i will be rooting for Hewitt against Federer. And i also hope Murray owns that Spanish prick

    How many times did Sampras and Becker play each other at Wimbledon?Only once. The Agassi-Sampras argument is there,but you have Federer's equivalent in Nadal.

    I'm not even talking about how good/bad Becker was on grass.All im saying is saying that Becker and Agassi were Pete's rivals werent enough.You need to take the time frame period into accouing.Sampras didnt come across Becker too often at grandslams.Hardly ever if i recall correctly. Sampras...

    Becker was already in decline when Pete hit his peak in the mid 90's.Agassi was high n dry at the time,and he only came back at the end of Sampras's career.I'm not underestimating Pete,but the names mentioned as his competitors were not at their peak when peak was at his.

    Correct me if im wrong,but Becker and Sampras never faced each other at the French Open. Courier and Sampras played each other twice at the French Open,with both winning once.So i dont see how you can say that both players were obstacles for Pete.He was outdone by much lesser players at the...

    Or maybe he was too good to be rivaled? You cant compare players from different eras,but Federer's dominance has been exceptional.

    Federer is arguably the greatest ever.And easily the greatest i've seen.And yes,I've seen Sampras. But Roddick was pure class today.I dont think i've ever felt as sorry for a tennis player the way i did today.I'd love for him to pull off an Goran-isque Wimbledon triumph in the future.He...

    Roddick has started well.Uncharacteristically.Usually Federer starts picking up his serve very early,and he hasnt done that so far.

    Federer is an absoloute joy to watch.But this will be a one sided final.Either Roddick will blast Federer off the court,or Federer will own him in 3 sets.Dont expect a 5 setter by any means. Id love it if Roddick wins,but Federer has his number worse than Juve have Madrid's.

    Like Vlakto said..he has a lot of time.Federer's game on clay is only slightly less effective than his game on other surfaces.He has reached 3 consecutive French Open finals.He would have won all 3 had he not faced a clay court monster like Nadal.Sampras only had one French Open semifinal to his...

    I agree about the compeititon Sampras had in his time.But i dont think he's a class above Federer.Sampras had a very agressive style,a style that allowed him to blow the opponents away on fast surfaces,but then again,it was a style that made him very fragile on clay.Federer has a much more...

    Nadal has officialy gone to Federer's head now.Here starts Federer's decline,and Nadal's rise to the top.By decline im talking about Nadal getting the better of him in the future.Federer will win more grandslams,provided that he doesnt face Nadal. But like him or hate him,Federer is pure...

    This is probably Federer's last major shot at Wimbledon.I cant see him stopping Nadal in the future.

    This is one sick final.I hate both,but the quality is great.Federer is doing well fighting back.I have a sneaky feeling that he's going to stage the ultimate comeback and take this one right down to the wire in the 5th set.

    YES! Great playersb,but i fucking hate their arrogance and how they'd achieve nothing all year long and then show up in the Grand Slams. Someone needs to cut Serena's thighs and donate them to hungry people all around the world.
