Tiger Woods is one of the best golfers ever, Bouchard is nowhere near that as a tennis player. Her achievements are closer to Sloane Stephens, but there's no light there so yeah... Tiger.

Her game (hug the baseline, go for early flat winners) is the antithesis of clay court tennis. It may be a while before she breaks even on her wins and losses.

Fed is six inches taller. Rosewall would be overpowered AND outmaneuvered. Your imaginations are too kind.


PS - Some of the posters pretending that they have any clue what Mr. So and So from the dark ages actually played like need to sit down.

Good luck to the guy. I watched a match of his last year some time and the impression I got was that he had big shots and not much footwork. He had some competitive fire, but a lot of highs and lows as well. Not too bad a mix considering his age.  He should take dance lessons, do quick feet drills, whatever it takes to get his quickness and movement right. Hopefully Jay-Z isn't coaching him.

@DougRoberts1 @Tennis @SteveTignor @serenawilliams @WTA Serena's great, arguably the greatest so far, but currently Sharapova's supposed to be her biggest 'rival', that's laughable. It's a no contest, sad for the fans who paid to watch such an uncompetitive match

@Northernboy @KomboChapfika The best time for dealing with racist chanting people in the crowd is as it's happening. The umpire should call them out and security should remove them. This was been done for people holding up legitimate protest signs at the last AO. Indian Wells in the crucial moment and thereafter did little, preferring to pretend it didn't happen.

Was the racist chanting every addressed in any way? If not then why come back?

An otherworldly performance from Rafa to beat the irrepressible Juan Monaco.

@jodyjdc Nah. You're oversimplifying things, sometimes other players are just plain better. Better movers, better stamina, more versatile, and hungrier to boot. Harrison's game is solid, but nothing leaps out to me as world-beating. Nishikori has a lot more game than him, for example.

@TennisDad @KomboChapfika @cyrilcanada @LadyM I was being sarcastic and making fun of the kads who cling to the head-to-heads against a handful of players as though that's all that matters.

'Young, clearly unnerved, double-faulted on the next point and was broken when Ivanisevic approached and knocked off a forehand volley winner.'

@IamAbraxas Well said. I have no special intel, but I suspect that's what's going on with this guy. Some children raised without a strong and present father tend to be off-kilter because of the lack of that male disciplinary figure.

@yello fuzzy That's a very lame argument. If someone mugs you and runs off saying "shit happens" I doubt you'll see much merit in that. That's essentially what you're saying. It's a pass for any wrongdoing, not just the ones you want to support.

@IamAbraxas @KomboChapfika Mothers are female too. Your caveat has some merit, but parent coaches exist on both ATP & WTA.

@jc18 @IamAbraxas If the women generate more revenue let them earn more than the men, but if they don't then, no. I don't see anyone campaigning for equal pay for male models. It all got so politicized that economic fairness went out the window.

Off the top of my head. ATP pros coached by women at some point:


Murray, Istomin, Connors, Safin?.. I think there are others too

@VelizarDrazhev @Joyce B The mental issues aside, his forehand isn't that hot tbh. Same goes for his second serve.

@14Juillet "it is the equivalent of calling a black man 'boy' and asking him to tap dance."


Actually it's not. Insert Monfils into your imaginary analogy and it becomes obvious that you're off. The twirl request was lame and childish, but don't overplay your hand.

@14Juillet You're forgetting something. Bouchard could have just said "No." or even "You first." She's not obliged to play along with lame on court interviewers.

@Northernboy @shari12 At no point did Maria look like winning that match. Muguruza and Keys at least created a sense of 'what-if?' When it comes to Sharapova the only question is how will she lose to Serena.

3.5 at best. The guy should thank Delpo for his Wimby trophy. The guy needs therapy.
