Sam Stosur unappreciation thread


#4762

To be honest I think Diggles has been a few short of a full pack ever since he tried convincing me that Roger wouldn’t win more slams than Sampras.


#4763

Crazy… Please…


#4764

If there was a new crop of the next generataion coming thorugh I’d have said Serena, but with Federer going soon and no one else stepping up like Novak/Murray/Nadal did, I’ll have to say Novak.


#4765

I bet you like receiving two experiences at the same time…


#4766

Who wouldn’t?


#4767

We might be a bunch of cricketing cheats but at least we wake up this morning to Kokk beating Fed at Miami.
After getting beaten and losing his No 1 ranking Fed is quoted as saying -
“I’ve always liked his game,” Federer said. “I’m happy for him that on the big stage he was able to show it. It’s a big result for him in his career, and I hope it’s going to launch him.”


#4768

Digglet won’t be happy with a exuberant Kokk blasting Roger from top position.


#4769

Report in The Rage suggests 9 have snapped up TV broadcast rights from 7. Let’s hope we still get to hear Jim Courier. Him and Eddie commentating at Wimbledon would be a high-water mark in sports telecasting.


#4770

■■■■ no to Jim, he’s a shocker. McEnroe is the one you need


#4771

bah, I don’t mind courier. it’s hearing basil do tennis that I hate.


#4772

Whole Italian crowd just chanted NOLE.
Wtf.


#4773

NOLE


#4774

So Bernard qualifies for the French, then draws Nick in the first round!

Say what you like about them (actually, don’t), but that is match-up of some interest. Wonder if it will get to a match point.


#4775

Actually looking forward to watching that match up.


#4776

I’ve been waiting years for this match - The only problem is Tomic is awful on clay.


#4777

Not an issue now, Kyrgios has pulled out of the French open


#4778

Kyrigios could have done him a big favour and pull out in a game in or something to give Bernie a free win that he badly needs.


#4779

They’ve changed the rules this year so they get fined their prizemoney if they retire in the first round as a result of a pre-existing injury. So there was no benefit to Kyrgios to even walk onto the court and it’s really unfair on a lucky loser who would miss out on prizemoney if Kyrgios played a few games and then retired.


#4780

The lucky loser apparently booked himself into the other tournament on tour before Kyrgios pulled out so he couldn’t even take his spot


#4781

Apparently he did make it and he has just beaten Tomic
