I was talking about their past matches. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see their match in IW. I guess Fed has learned something from Djokovic  :)) :innocent: :zipped:

Alex - the highlights are on Youtube. No excuses.  :)>>>>
OK bud, I'm going to watch it right now, happy  :))? maybe not, I watch Djokovic only... I'm not sure about who other players are  :rofl_2:

Are you Nole No 1?  :innocent:
yes and proud of it  :rofl_2:. you've figured me out  :)). how is life in Vancouver?

fff is right with rafa's backhand.......it has become a crap shot with zero life.......he is failing like a clown to drive the ball off the backhand and is not committing to the drive unless he is forced to make a pass.......it reflects hesitation and fear of making an error.......i first noticed that in the last year's clay season and he never really got his backhand back since.......


i dont think he wants to improve. all he wants to do is pay lip service and those reporters always buy his bulls**t.

i am not happy with the clay warrior king.

There's no reason to be.
 
I don't see the intensity from him, yes he was running down balls and looking mean but there was the aura missing.
I can't put my finger on it exactly but something was not right.
 
It could be just having the problems with the knee, it's demoralizing when you try to make a push and your body won't let you.
 
Nadal has some good treatment that's worked in the past on the knees and the knees have been good for a few years so maybe that'll work.

i hear ya general swish. still even before the knee injury there is not single-minded focus and devotion to supreme fitness and his singles game.
 
everywhere you look in his game, there are zero improvements. and there is drop in fitness.
 
so he is cutting it too close for comfort. i think he will still do his thing on clay but not without a struggle.
 
it did not have to be this way at only 25. he could have done it differently and he could have dominated the sport a little longer.

He's not done yet. He had some blood spinning done on his knees before and it worked for him so well that the knees weren't even discussed for over a long period.
 
It's called 'Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy' and in many cases is close to a miracle.
 
This technique has already saved many pros in different sports their career.

interesting stuff there general swish.
 
i think he is back in the saddle with another RG title. that is really all that matters to be honest with you.
 
if he can stay ahead of no-djok in the slams race then that is more than good enough. it doesnt matter how many times clay warrior loses on hard courts.
 
he doesnt have the game for hard courts so he is supposed to lose there. he got by with his speed and his fitness on hard courts in the past but he doesnt have that now.
 
it is tough to summon the relentless will if it is not backed by bullet proof ground game and supreme fitness.

Has anyone signed up for the "TennisTV"?  It part of the ATP Tour/WTA event partnership?  It cost about $130 a year.  If anyone is a subscriber; can you tell me if you like it and how many matches/events are blacked out and what about the Grand Slam events/matches like quarters and beyond?
How do you use it? smartphone. computer, etc...  features, etc...   Is it worth the money?  Does it have the capabilities of watching matches that already taken place?

Here is the link:http://www.tennistv.com/home

Thanks.

I have it. Generally the quality is HD with a few streaming interruptions due to server issues. There have been a few blackouts - f.e. Miami final due to local TV in America. I generally watch on the PC, but I also have a separate iPad subscription. Yes it has "video on demand", you can watch highlights and full matches.

Nadal is 7-time defending champ, he can't be beat on the red clay of Monaco.

I wonder if they will give it to me for free in exchange to advertising on the website?  :)
Good Luck on the Court!!!
