I think they should play until the heat index reaches over 110.  They have ice, they have drinks, they have towels right there.  This isn't a marathon!

Yeah Nishikori looked like he was playing the best I have ever seen him play when he was playing Dolgopolov.

How about the Djokovic/Federer semifinal at Aussie 2011?  Called a three set beat down but only 8 point difference over three sets.

How many people on here couldn't stand to watch the whole Aussie final because of the time.  How many people had to miss some of it because they got hungry, bored, thirsty, or had to go poop. Six hours is just too long to watch.  How many people watched the full Isner Mahut 11 hour match?  It just gets to be too much.

 @Misato3 Nadal wasn't rolling on the ground to eat up time.  That was a very crucial time in the match in the final set.

Black so you sweat a lot?  Blacks should be more tolerant of the heat especially when there is no sun at all.  He is also very skinny and should cool quickly.  You sweat a lot because you arne't in shape dude. :P

In the final set against Nadal Djokovic stalled by lying on the ground like he was injured and I counted the time in between points and it was 40 seconds or more.  Any other sport it would be considered unsportsmanship like conduct and draw a penalty.  Nadal would have won the final at the Aussie if there was a set time limit.  Nadal was in better shape and should have won.  It's not right!!!!!!!!!!!

 @Carol35 The time between points in the Aussie Final was up to 40 seconds or more at times.The match could have  been completed in an hour less.

Djokovic took a full 40 seconds between points when he was in trouble against Nadal in the Aussie final.  He dropped on the ground even though he had no injury.  There should have been an automatic point penalty.  People may say they want to watch a 6 hour sporting event but they don't mean tennis and even tennis fans don't want to watch a 6 hour tennis match.

I can't believe Roger Federer is not considered by anyone in the know to be player of the year.  He got number one ranking back to break Pete's record, won a slam, got his first olympic singles medal, tied Nadal for most Masters titles, kept his consecutive quarterfinals streak going at the Majors.  I think he might have surpassed someone else on the most titles list.

Djovokic would have lost the match if they kept to the time constraints.  How many sports allow you to take as long as you want? How many of those so called sports fans that weren't tennis fans actually watched the whole match?  x tina x I don't think any of them that said they would enjoy a sporting even that lasted close to 6 hours were thinking about tennis.  If it was a football game yes, anything else no.

I think number 400 something beating a guy that a year and half ago was ranked 8 and is currently 38 is an unbelievable upset.  The guy hasn't even won an atp match in his life, had to qualify (which is probably his most consecutive wins on the year) and has only played maybe a dozen matches this year on challenger, etc tours.

Reply

Del Potro had serious wrist problems a few years ago and with his results and skipping the Paris Masters near the end of one year I had suspicions that it wasn't healed yet.  I think he has had a few other injuries.  For him to be healthy I think he needs 6 months off and needs to weight lift, etc, before he comes back. If he doesn't rest this long he will continue to struggle against the best in the world.

It does seem that Nadal goes away because he can't stand losing and maybe he has lost concentration and focus. He does seem to come back at times remarkably well.  Tennis is funny though because it is possible to still win when you aren't feeling that good, it's not like a race where one has to be totally healthy.

Many players say they think the world tour finals are important and like the world series of tennis.  Federer thinks that way and has played even when not in good health, same with Djokovic and Nadal. Fish was getting hurt at the end of last year and still was going to play it no matter what is basically how he said it.

Yeah thinking about it the Swiss probably should have used a slow hard court like the Australian. would Federer has always done well at the Australian except against Djokovic and Nadal. They are the only players that have beaten him there since 2005 and Mardy Fish hates that surface. I think Isner would have done worse on a slow indoor hardcourt.

I don't give much hope to Wawrinka beating Isner even if it is on clay because he beat Federer.

The Swiss team should have picked the surface at the Australian Open as Fish hates it, Fed won against three big hitters and Wawrinka isn't too bad on it.

Federer worries too much about winning instead of going for it on the big points. He needs to be able to hit aces and stopped after a while. Being broken twice in the last set is no way to go out in a match.

Federer gets pissed about losing to people that aren't experienced and aren't even seeded, etc. He crushed Nishikori after Nishikori beat Djokovic. He needs to play like he is one of the big 4 to hope for a win.

It will be interesting what happens tomorrow. I swear I've seen Ferrer move just as fast or faster than Nadal. I wonder if a healthy Davydenko and Ferrer are actually faster than anyone except maybe Monfils.

I think Ferrer at his best can be as good as Davydenko. You never know maybe a confident Ferrer will take a major this year. In many matches Ferrer doen't look confident against the best guys.

Because men and women aren't the same so there is no equality between the relationship of men and women and men with men and women with women. It is not the same and if it was so everyone would be bisexual.
