I don't see anything special in Welbeck and Cleverley. They are average, and get over hyped because they play for Man United.

Never rated Rooney as World Class. He's very good, no doubt, but i don't think he's world class like some people make out. World class is thrown around too much imo

I agree. indeed, I see only 5 players who are world class in the world right now. one is Park Ji Sung, obviously.

Re: Ask Nazzac

I think there can be only 3 or 4 world class players in each position. I don't think that attackers are the only ones who can be considered world class. Can't compare players who play in 2 different positions

Re: Ask Nazzac

Are you going to watch Tsonga's South American exhibition matches?

What is your favorite surface?

What is your least favorite surface?

Do you think courts are too slow these days?

Who do you think is the GOAT - both in men's and women's tennis?

1. I'm not going here if thats what you mean. But i'll watch Federer vs Tsonga and Del Potro vs Federer on Youtube

2. To watch. Grass

3. Clay. Too slow

4. Overall yes. I think it should be like this for the Grand Slams. Wimbledon- Fast, Roland Garros- Slow, US Open- Medium slow, Aussie Open- Medium Fast (hardcourts either way)

5. Mens- Federer. Womens- Graf

Re: Ask Nazzac

Yeah, I meant on Youtube/live stream.

When was the last time you've repped someone?

Have you ever badrepped someone?

Do you have a pet?

What's your favorite movie?

Which forehand is better - peak Tsonga's or peak del Potro's?

Re: Ask Nazzac

BTW, i think that Peak Tsonga is better than Peak Del Potro. Peak Tsonga is almost unstoppable.

Re: Ask Nazzac



Who do you think will win your favorite players contest?

Do you enjoy watching players like Isner, Raonic, Querrey?

Do you watch tennis matches in which none of your faves participates?

Do you think Tomic will be a future slam winner?

Are you happy that I revived this thread?

1. Hopefully Slava . TBH i don't know. It's hard to predict due to the multiple choice, which gives it an extra twist. I mean, Kerber was the most voted player in round 1 i believe, and now she's 2nd to Robson.

2. I wouldn't say i enjoy it, but i don't mind it either.

3. Yes of course.

4. He can be if he applies himself. I think it depends on Tomic himself, and how Murray, Djokovic, Del Potro do after Fedal retires.

5. yeah
-----------------------------------------

I know this is my Q&A thread.

But, who do you think will win the favourite player tournament?

It's really difficult to say, I'd like to see the results of the semis first. For me it's quite surprising that Kimiko and Robson are doing so well in this contest but I'm not so sure if they will get as many votes in the latter rounds. I would rather expect the higher ranked players to dominate the SF/final. So here's a wild guess, based on nothing but gut feeling: 1) S. Williams 2) Sharapova 3) Azarenka 4) Kvitova/V. Williams 5) Li Na. How many players can you vote for in the final?

Re: Ask Nazzac

I haven't fully decided yet. I'm thinking a single vote final, where you choose your favourite out of the final 10 instead of choosing a few. Therefore i think we'll get a clear decision on who people's favourite is. The multiple choice option is good in the first few rounds because you are likely to get more than 2 favourite in a group, plus it allows smaller ranked players who are well liked, like Kimiko to get through. In the final it's different as were are defining who the favourite player is, so a single vote would be best imo

Slava's doing okay in this round. 3rd in her group and 5 go through.

Personally, I'd prefer a multiple choice poll in the final. IMO that's what makes this contest unique and I think we might see different yet significant results compared to a single choice poll. Single choice would show which player has the most fans, whereas with a multiple choice poll you'd have the chance to vote for your second, third, etc. fave as well; if many people vote for the same player as their second, third, etc. fave, this player would obviously be very much liked as well but would fall short if you could only vote for your first fave. But that's just my opinion and I'll be happy with whatever you decide in the end - it's your contest after all.

If you decide to make it single choice I'd change the predictions I made in my previous post because I made them with a multiple choice final in my mind.

Yeah, that's nice to see! And Vika is first in her group, tied with Petra.

Re: Ask Nazzac

I haven't fully decided what to do with the final yet. But it's definately going to be single or multiple choice.

What do you think of my contest? (i admit i copied it off MTF )
