Thanks,Ozza, so there must be 6 qualifiers who reach the MD. That's fairly uncommon yet not altogether bizarre

Re: Multi sports thread

I'm over a day late but congratz to Lewis on his 1st GP victory with Mercedes. Thoroughly deserved and he made it happen with his pole position and then in the race those overtaking moves on Button and Webber.

On another note - there was a rumour Alonso wanted to move to Red Bull. They asked Vettel what he thought about it and he could barely contain that was the last thing he wanted.

I think he said he´d prefer Kimi, because he´s an honest and nice human being, implying Alonso is a liar and an asshole.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Congratz to Lotte and the European Solheim Cup team. They've won the Solheim cup for the first time ever when playing away over in the USA.

And didn't our rookies do well.

Charley Hull (and Lexi Thompson) are going to be so rich. Amazing talent. Craemer was lucky she was a bit nervous early or Hull would have won like 10&8. SugarPova better watch her back. Hullypops are coming.

Ciganda is truly the female Seve. What a mess she makes off the tee only to hit amazing recovery shots and 45 foot putts. 3-0 for the week.

Hedwall first ever to go 5-0 as a wildcard after a stunning rookie debut two years ago. New Poulter. Nice she beat that annoying bitch Wie for the decisive point.

Wonder how that traitor daughter of Petr Korda feels now.

About the only time I´d watch female golf, but it´s a great concept and a lot of fun.

Chardy wins. Scheepers - Simmonds next and the winner faces Caro 2R.

Re: Multi sports thread

Fed looked good today. True, against pretty poor opposition, but still. Good start to the tournament for the great man.

For the old man.

Re: Multi sports thread

Fed couldn't even make it to a QF encounter with Nadal but got knocked out in straights by a guy outside the top 20. I think it's time to acknowledge that Fed has gotten old (32) and just isn't a slam contender anymore. He'll most likely always be the most naturally gifted player the game ever saw but even a genius can't outrun Father Time.

He can still play some good ball but mentally it just isn't there anymore. It was painfull to see him make a mess out of all those breakpoint opportunities he's had and to see him lose it even on his own serve when the match got tight. The sad thing is not so much that he lost the match but much more the way he lost it. The only positive thing is that he at least won't be humiliated by Nadal in the QF. It's sad to say it, but he should call it a career at this point. He's arguably the GOAT but the writing is on the wall. Nobody wants to see him slowly (or quickly as is currently happening) drop down the rankings and put himself into the position of career best win on the resume of every second or third tier player on the tour.
