If we were having this conversation in 2003-2004 I would completely agree with you but with the results Andy has had since then I kind of feel sorry for him. He was hyped as being the next Pete Sampras and things certainly did not end up like that for him. It's not a final but for me this is kind of similar to when Hewitt, another player that Roger has completely dominated, defeated him a few years ago in a grass court final. Federer may not be the player he was but he is still miles ahead of Roddick and Hewitt so if they can manage to beat him good for them.

I think most people would agreee that DownInAhole and I are the two most pessimistic posters on here (at least among regulars).

But who are most optimistic posters on here?

I like to think of us as "realists" and those silly optimists as "delusional."

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

It's a bit ironic: last year the Charleston people practually begged Caro to play their tournament because most of the other top players had opted out and they really needed a name. This year Caro is one of the few top players NOT on the entry list because of WTA rules (possibly Caro can play Charleston now that Sharapova seems to have opted out but I hope she skips it and focuses on Copenhagen next).

She has been one of the more committed top players there and has had good runs the last few years (final, semi-final, win). You would think they would want the defending champion back.

I saw a great comment on Roger today at another forum...."I hate it when people compare God to Federer. I mean, I don't deny that he's great, but he's no Federer."

That is funny but God would not have blown a 5-2 first set lead over Nadal in the 2011 Roland Garros final (that set is going to haunt me to my grave).

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Grrr, one thing that makes Federer's loss to Roddick sting a bit more is the fact that Andy lost his next match (Juan Moanaco). Tough to say with any certainty but I feel very confident that Roger would have defeated Juan and then Fish in the quarters. This was a relatively easy draw to the semis that Federer squandered.

Yah, Fed probably would have. This is a big blow to his goal to get back #2 particularly by the French Open and eventually #1.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Why when a double fault is challenged successfully or overruled does the server get another 1st serve? Why don't they replay the point with a 2nd serve again?

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

I think if it's challenged correctly, they get a 2nd serve. If it's overruled they start the point over, meaning 1st serve. It's not quite fair but it is that way, as I understand it.

The thinking probably is that when the server had a good serve called out wrong and then overturned it breaks their rhytm/concentration and it wouldn't be fair to have them serve 2nd serve again.

Someone should tweet the unofficial hawkeye review of that match point to Caro. Heh.
