@MashaFan Pull out from last year's FO? Apparently you don't follow anything in tennis but Shriekapova.

@WolfPrincessOfMtLupus I think it just follows from his disdain for Rafa, that he would start liking Novak more. He never used to, that's for sure, but once Djokovic started beating Nadal more often, the narrative shifted slightly.

@IamAbraxas Count me as one of them, and I don't even really like Connors all that much.
@juwon80 I think the field she's competing against is at a lower level. Women's tennis in the 90's and early 2000's was full of great players that could compete at the highest level. Today's WTA is a far cry from that, and an older, more experienced Serena just tears right through it...as long as she's healthy.

That's a pretty bold prediction.
Who cares WHY she withdrew, just enjoy the peace and quiet while you can.
Even if that were true, which I highly doubt, it would mean nothing because it's RANDOM.

@JacobFisher You certainly are, I'll give you that.

@JacobFisher Yes, a vast portion of the tennis community shares your opinion of Nadal and his game. That must be why he's so immensely popular.
@x tina x I wouldn't say so. The change to his game happened at the end of 2010/start of 2011 and it's been pretty much the same since then. The main component was figuring out Nadal, as he always had enough to take on everyone else. Nadal reversed that last year, but has since regressed. The only real question in tennis right now is which of them will emerge victorious each time they meet for the rest of the year.

@Airam It would really be hilarious if he said the thing about Roger crying. I think that's just the kick in the ass that tennis fandom needs.

It's tennis. How many dimensions do you need?
Nah, Bodo just doesn't like Rafa and likes to stir the pot. This article has lit up with comments. Oh, and if there were a player I disliked so, I'd say it to their face. Tomic has a lot of growing up to tell, and I'd tell him that in person if I had the chance. I'd tell Djokovic I like him but the celebrations from him and his box border on the obnoxious. I'd tell Rafa to stop picking his pants. All of these things i would say to their faces with no issue, if I ever had such a chance.
@western87 He never really had the need for it, he was already there, personality wise. Game-wise, he's evolved more than any other. Only Djokovic had a bigger change, and that was a one-time thing.
You have to admit that Novak is classier than he was. And he is by far the classiest player when he loses a match.

@Ed Rogo For some of us, 2 or 3 shot tennis was boring.
Thanks for finally coming clean with your obvious distaste for Nadal, Bodo. No longer will readers of this site have to debate whether or not you're biased against him. As for your complaints: it's tennis, it's really not that complicated. Though I wonder if you ever wrote a similar piece to complain about Federer's dominance everywhere else. Something tells me no.

@western87 I do agree, however in the case of the coin it's our own bias that demands a head now and then instead of all tails. Would it be odd for 100 tosses to end in tails? Yes and no. It's just one of those things which, if it happened, would be hard to wrap our heads around. Kind of like trying to understand infinity; we think we can, but we really can't.Now as far as it pertains to the big 4 and how often and where they meet up, the problem is two-fold: one, we've had more or less the same top 4 for several years now, a somewhat unprecedented occurrence in tennis. They're head and shoulders above the rest and of course they're going to meet up in semis or finals quite often, it's also not a common thing for the same 4 to be so consistent for so long; before this era it was common for one or more top players to exit in the quarters or earlier. Just look at Fed's records for quarterfinal and semifinal appearances: it's abnormal and exceptional. Aside from that, they haven't had the same rank within the top 4 for most of that time, aside from Fed and Nadal being 1 & 2 for so often (each holding the record for weeks spent at those respective ranks). But with these same 4 in such a state of flux within the top 4 ranking spots, even when the numbers are random, the people are not. What I mean is that we haven't had the same rankings playing each other every time, we've had the same people moving between the same 4 rankings every time. So of course you'll get some common matchups. And then the fans who want different matchups complain. Who wants to met Nadal on clay, Djokovic on hardcourts or Fed on grass?
