Re: Multi sports thread

Djokovic: “The only way I could have won the match today is by believing that I can make it all the way until the end and staying mentally strong. That's what I've done. I didn't allow my emotions to fade away, as it was probably the case in Roland Garros final a couple, three, four weeks ago…I managed to not just win against my opponent but win against myself as well and find that inner strength that got me the trophy today.”

Exactly right. He's had a tendency to fade away in his last GS finals. Against Federer yesterday he faded away in the last half of set four but stayed strong in set five. Now he needs to show he can do the same thing next time he faces Nadal in a USO or FO final.

Here's hoping for a quadruple bogey on the 18th for the Ulsterman.

Re: Multi sports thread

Rory is going to win a lot of majors. Caro was dating one of the great young athletes in the world. Maybe the biggest superstar for the next 20 years
But if he broke it up like he did, it was never going to last.
He won a major when they were together. It was Caro's game that really fell apart.
He won majors in 2011, 2012 & one hole from 2014.
3 in 4 years, if he keeps that up he'll make a run at 18
Next 5 minutes are the biggest of McIlroy's year

Garcia birdied 18th. Rory 'only' needs to double bogey for a tie.

Re: Multi sports thread

It was January when McIlroy was tweeting "She said YES!!"
So if they were together, Caro would be there, who knows if Rory would have won.

Re: Multi sports thread

Well Rory is a good golfer. I started the day to wish he'd blow his lead but then thought what the hell. He deserves it. Congrats to him.

Both Caro and Rory seem to be doing better at their sports without each other. I think Caro well and truly got over him on the holiday with Serena though. And anyway - Caro made me very happy today even if it was only an International.

Re: Multi sports thread

Rory behaved like a complete douchebag towards Caroline-nevertheless he remains a golfer of the highest calibre,as he proved this week. So it goes.

Have been very impressed by Caro since the French Open,hope she continues down this promising road.

Re: Multi sports thread

Would be great not see this d-bags name mentioned in Caro's forum! I don't care how great golfer he is and how many tournaments he will win, Rory is scum for how he treated Caro and we shouldn't be talking about him here in Caroline's forum, just my thoughts!

Re: Multi sports thread

And Lewis Hamilton gets screwed once again with car reliability whilst his team-mate has no problems. Lewis was way faster in all his practice sessions than Rosberg but as soon as he goes out for qualifying - the car bursts into flames. Last week his brakes failed during qualifying causing him to crash and have to start way down whilst Rosberg is gifted pole.

Coupled with this - Rosberg has been benefitting from lightning pit-stop times whilst with Lewis there's always some problem changing the wheels and the pit-stop crew always take longer. People said at the beginning of the season when Lewis's car barely managed to complete lap 1 that bad luck with reliability will even itself out. But it hasn't and it's beyond a joke.

Also at the German GP at the Hockenheimring and Rosberg with a lead - then a car spins and stranded in the middle of the circuit. Dangerously for the marshalls they remove the car from the circuit under yellow flags. No safety car. Of course not because that would have eroded all of Rosberg's lead he had built up. When the same thing happened to Lewis early this year - safety car is brought out eroding Lewis's lead and placing Rosberg in a position to overtake.

I'm not into conspiracy theories but it is Mercedes and Rosberg is a German driver. So everyone is wondering.

Re: Multi sports thread

^ And weather and SC was on Hamilton's side during the race. But I don't see Rosberg fans crying and blaming it on a 'conspiracy' ...
