@Letters From Canada yeah, ok, by your logic Monfils has evolved the sport of tennis, or maybe Bethanie Mattek Sands, no wait who's that funny guy who pulled his pants down?

@skmind @KomboChapfika Whatever makes you feel better. I just stated an objective fact 'Nadal lost to 17 yr old Coric' Excuses don't moot the fact, even if you are psychic.

Serena lost worse a few days ago and there were fewer excuses.

@Fernando so to clarify: some kads are bemoaning Rafa's errors yet others say indoor tennis doesn't require consistency. Please put down the koolaid before you OD

@Northernboy Some Rafa acolytes are deluding themselves with this 'anyone could have beaten him' mantra. Much like the Bouchard bunch claiming Petra was unplayable at Wimbledon. Accept defeat with grace and respect and move on. Nothing is permanent.

@IGotYouNow Yes, I too will lose ALL RESPECT for her. How can a competitor do something that's in their own best interest, how crass and unforgivable. It's not like most people don't do that in their banal office jobs every day.

@ivo @vikki good Good on Petra for reciprocating the noise. I don't like playing overly loud opponents, it seems like a way to dominate the space and rhythm of play. There are valid reasons (exhale through contact, etc), but beyond a certain point it's just annoying noise, extra incentive to ratchet up the intensity in opposition to all that howling.

@SandyDeMarco Rafa has a three year contract with Basel (contracts are about dough, plain and simple). Steve didn't express any disdain for capitalims he simply pointed it out, which upset you. Why exactly? It seems you'd rather we all pretend it doesn't exist, as if that's somehow better. 2¢

@faradubii Genie already lost, making 30 ufies. Aga... her game is limited and gets exposed aghainst the top tier, and occasionally against the lower tiers.

@Carol35 @KomboChapfika @quietplease @SandyDeMarco maybe Perhaps, watch other sports to see how significant pacing and recuperation can be, physically and mentally. Most sports have rules against delays of play, stalling tactics, unsportsmanlike attempts to disrupt an opponent's momentum, etc. In a sport of such small margins the marginal stuff actually matters. It's also not random that players who like to play grueling points tend to slow things down between points when under pressure, that's how they compete.

@ivo 'Beefing up' is not the answer. Our bodies are not machines, we have our natural builds and often adding on muscle just lowers agility and makes players more injury prone as it puts more strain on their joints.

Bouchard also lost. The site seems almost embarrassed to mention it. Perhaps someone can start a snarky 'Bouchatd lost' meme.
