Re: Roland Garros website is a complete disaster

I am using http://www.flashscore.com/tennis. And BTW, the cameras are not covering all courts (so far).

Re: FO 1R: (Q)Teliana Pereira grabs first FO MD win and def. (WC)Fiona Ferro 63 62

Fiona is young. I think that the grinding game of Teliana Pereira was overly physically demanding for her. She seemed to run out of gas halfway through the first set.

Re: The 2015 Off Court Photos Thread (Photo Shoots/Parties/Sponsor Events etc.) Vol.

Oh, I see. So "Europe" equals "(the so-called) Western Europe" after all. Come on, we've got our fair share of fat women too. :mad:

Re: How does Camila Giorgi hit so hard?

This! And it is sad that this forum is still mostly in denial when it concerns technique. It reminds me of a (still rather recent, I think) discussion among philosophers of science who were...

Re: Dubai R2: (2) Kvitova def. Svitolina 2-6 6-3 6-2

OK, Petra has not played her best tennis here. It is not that big deal, it happens also to other top class tennis players in their first matches from time to time.

However, was it really that bad...

Re: Antwerp QF: Zahlavova Strycova def. Barthel 6-2 6-2

He is probably hoping that Barbora is going to advance to the finals. And then, he will start a thread about four Czechs in top 20. :lol:

If it does not happen, then (as a sort of a consolation)...

Re: Australian Open R2: (22) Ka. Pliskova def. (WC) Dodin 7-5 5-7 6-3

This is the usual misconception. Yes, you have to be rather more heavily built in order to hit a very heavy ball - meaning with large amount of top spin, pushing your opponents far back behind the...

Re: Fed Cup F: Epic choking: Kvitova(CZE) def. Kerber (GER) 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 6-4

Of course not. The picture is the proof (not the last one, but there is one in Petra's forum). Klára also got her replica trophy. I am quite sure that Bára Záhlavová-Strýcová will be given one too,...

Re: Limoges F: Tereza Smitkova d. (9) Kristina Mladenovic, 76(4) 75!

Nice observation. These two players do have something in common. As for Tereza, the main glitch she needs to work on in the off season is her calmness on court. She has got some big game and solid...

Re: The Fed Cup Final court is illegal, CZE is cheating

You chose the untrue information to believe in; nothing to be ashamed of in this age of over- and misinformation. It is the same all over the world with these big multi-arenas. The court was ready in...

Re: The Fed Cup Final court is illegal, CZE is cheating

I wonder why no one mentioned the practical side of this problem. What decides the speed of these types of courts is the amount of sand put under the paint. The more sand is there the coarser the...

Re: Serena Williams doesn't eat meat. What about VW?

Sorry, but this is just a typical player's forum stuff. Is it really necessary to post it in GM where virtually every second post concern somebody named Williams?!

And I am not pressed, nor a...

Re: Serena deems Tarpischev racist and sexist bully; Sharapova chimes in

OK, it seems like a BS, but this "rehearsal" defence can be actually used with success. If you understand the language, the show director really directed the sentence by using the female pronoun,...

Re: Moscow R1: Mladenovic d. Ka Pliskova (7) 6-3 7-5

So, what do we have here today? Both twins lost their respective matches against a frenchwoman; and by the same scoreline... Boring! :sport:

Re: Beijing SF (3)Petra 'Check blood pressure' Kvitova def Samantha Stosur 6-3 5-7 6-

Thank you for this post! I really do not get the people here. Sam was playing awesome first-strike tennis in the second set. Yes, Petra was not at her best but the way Sam played there, every player...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol68

BTW, as for Petra's serve. I agree that, in Beijing, it's been nowhere near as good as in Wuhan. It is most likely due to some sort of mental tiredness. However, have you thought about the...

Re: Best examples of Roshambo head-to-head records?

One nice, symmetric and (maybe) a little bit surprising:

Radwańska - Záhlavová-Strýcová 4-0
Záhlavová-Strýcová - Cetkovská 4-0
Cetkovská - Radwańska 4-0

Re: Wuhan Final: [3] Petra Kvitova def. [6] Genie Bouchard 6-3 6-4

I think you oversimplify when judging Petra's return. It is not only about how many returns you put back into play but what strategical purpose your ROS serves.

Petra (in some of her mathches,...
