Re: Who is for a 5 set semi/final? *hands up*
No way. Two sets down miraculous comebacks in Slams are THE BEST. And the crowd tends to get very involved. (Murray vs Gasquet in Wimbledon 2008, for instance.)
*hands up* I like the idea of bo5 for women's Slam finals, yes. May help Slam final virgins get rid of the nervousness.
Not necessarily. Kvitova had a "miraculous" comback against Kanepi in 3 sets. Besides 3 sets mean that you'd better come out blazing in the first set and not round assing and goldbricking.
WTF is ths business about professional players needing a set to get rid of nerves. If you're a pro suck it up and deal with it.
For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.
The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare
