Ditto. Meanwhile, Ivanisavic still looks really young. Do you think something shady is going on?:confused::p

I haven't watched every match, but I think he's got a lot of flack because of the Kyrgios association, and he's not tried that hard to stick up for him. They are of a similar age, with similar...

Not directly, and Nick says he doesn't think he should, but to be fair, I don't think she'd want to speak to him, and what little she has said on the subject, she thinks he should have been suspended...

I suggested a minor rephrasing that would have sounded loads better, so while some people may never be satisfied, it's clearly incorrect to presume that there is nothing he could say.

I can't see beyond it myself either. Amazing to think how close Heather got to foiling her plan at Wimbledon, but Serena showed her guts. Perhaps a more experienced opponent could have taken...

I'd say it's the other way around. It's fake and pointless to apologise if you don't care how the other person feels about it. Admitting that you don't care how the other person feels only proves...

You can get it on some tvs. It depends what they've signed up for. Just like not all tvs have Netflix or Amazon. Apparently it's on all Panasonic Smart TVs, but not sure if it's general Eurosport,...

I hope so!

Murray will need to be on the ball for this, as Nick could cause a lot of problems if he's in the zone, and Murray is half-hearted. Andy can manage that, especially after a good run at...

Of all the big name logos, that's my favourite. I think it's cute and good fun, and I think would be popular without any connection to a specific player.

I'm generally not fussed about on-court swearing or racquet abuse, so long as you aren't damaging the court or hurting ball-boys, but I think it's particularly spurious when a line judge has to...

The whole idea that Novak and Roger were playing on half a tank is revisionist nonsense.

Novak probably was tired, but he'd played less tennis on his run to the final than Andy had. He's also...

I'd be happy for him to get it for the completion aspect, especially as he doesn't have the Grand Slam. He's probably just as good as Roger or Nadal were, but his age, and timing of his peak means...

In the bulletin I saw, they described him as the British number 1, which I thought was a bit odd, as it goes without saying, and he'd just become World number 2, which is a bit more impressive and...

To be fair, most were on Djokovic's serve, including a tie-break, and he played excellent points. But yes, it was very frustrating, especially as Murray was too gassed to do much in the 3rd set.
