masterclass is a great addition to the forum......i am glad he is posting here as well.......expect nothing but objectivity.......

Thanks to all for the kind words. 

I'm a fan of great tennis, not any particular player, so I may focus on those players that in my opinion produce the best tennis. However, any player in the top 500 in the world is better than I am now, and thus gets and deserves my respect for their tennis playing ability, even if I don't mention them, and you won't see me calling them mugs or labeling them with more derogatory names.  I attempt to give as fair a critique and analysis as I can, as general shankar has suggested.

I hope this as this forum grows, contributors will generally will avoid the "hate" talk and bickering that I've seen in other forums.
Respectful discourse and debate is healthy and good. 

Respectfully,
masterclass

masterclass, please follow the program and use "CLAY" or "DEATH" or "PRAY" or "WARRIOR" at least once per paragraph. It's more likely that others will respond to you.

Here, I'll do you a solid and rewrite your post.


CLAY WARRIOR understands what you are doing...but it's your DEATHKNELL. I'm listing and totaling the individual end results and one can only have 1 result per match. PRAY for mercy fellow WARRIOR, for doing it your way falsely inflates the numbers in that regard. CLAY DEATH WARRIOR thinks it is understood by everyone that if one wins the CLAY title they have also SLAYED MERCILESSLY the first round through the final, or if one makes the final that they have won from the first round through the semifinal.

Look at it this way, WARRIOR. If one took to a stick to record in the RED CLAY the total number of tournaments played as well, and the player did not finish lower than the semifinals, one might see something like this...


PRAY FOR DEATH,
masterclass

Dude, it's not that difficult and I'm not terribly verbose.

Q: How many SF did he reach?
A: 6

not

He won 1 title, was the runner up 4 times, and reached the SF of 2005. That makes 6 SF.

See. I can answer the question with a single digit.

That's your question. Not mine. As I said, in my analysis, I was giving totals of end results, and I believe my presentation best represents those.

Much can happen between now and Roland Garros.  We don't even know how the rankings will look. I've laid out various possibilities elsewhere, but I won't make any prediction till I see the draw. 

Respectfully,
masterclass

That's a good point, we have no feedback on how Djokovic will do on clay this year but he should do well.
We know Nadal will have a strong game there but he's just getting back from some knee treatment and will be short on practice at least for MC.
 
The other part is how Fed will end up in the rankings, he has a chance for taking the #2 spot.
This can have a big effect at RG, Nadal could end up in Djokovic's half if he drops to #3.
Then Nadal would have to go through Djokovic and this would be Fed's best draw scenario with a chance to make it to the finals against Djokovic.
 
The tournaments leading up to RG will play a part also, Nadal needs to do well to build confidence and so does Djokovic.
 
Fed's recharging himself and letting the top players run through a tough schedule, it may make a difference at RG.

How about Monte Carlo?
 
Do you see Djokovic stealing one of Nadal's favorite tournaments?

hello there great falcon princess. that would be none other than the greatest warrior in the entire history of mankind. nobody is even remotely close to him in terms of bravery and fighting skills on the battlefield.

his name: the great warrior king leonidas. we all learned about his bravery and his courage as early as in 3rd and 4th grade.

that is one of his 2 statues that honor him. this one is in sparta, greece.

the other one is made of bronze that one sits at the pass of thermopylae.

stop barking babbles. if you are really that desperate up to go work as fanning somebody`s balls then go do it. why do you feel the need to tell us about your latent feelings and proclivities.
 
 
plenty of deranged and rich baby boomers who are reaching the retirement age. some of them employ equally deranged people like you to fan their balls as they sit idly around all day.
 
general swish and i can provide you with letters or recommendation. we are just that kind.
