Serena takes the second set 6:2.

Over to Sao Paolo and the same score... I am beginning to suspect Nalbandian has sold this match.

Nadal's moonballing is so ugly. How can anybody like his tennis....

Nadal got violation code and immediately walks the umpire to intimidate him.
Sick of him!
Still, Nalbandian manages to break and serving at 3:0.

We saw a very interesting event here. Nadal getting a time violation...not happy about it but rushes his serve a bit more.....and guess what happens? the 2 easiest UEs on his FH. it's exactly what happens when muscles are starving oxygen!

Very annoying Nalby plays so sloppy, he's helping Nadal very much in gaining confidence. Nadal will cherish this win and it will make him stronger

I was so much a fan to have a slam or a big event in South America...but clearly I could not go 2 weeks of 5 sets matchs in such hysteria.

I think the rate of hair-loss, the age at which it could start showing up is also genetic and also individual. Steroid might be a cause, but hair loss is no evidence.

I myself have started to lose hair, but leave steroids, I don't even take coffee/tea/alcohol/smoking/ or anything like that.

Yes it will help Nadal but not his mouvement. I don;t think he can sustain proper tennis...it's been ridiculous teh level of tennis played this week...and even more ridiculous that Nadal could win a tournament playing so poorly but he was clearly help by a crowd who clearly is not aware of the many talents it has on its continent and goes on to support the LA of tennis!.

I can't believe it!
Nadal won the 2nd set 6:3 and I left it off when Nalbandian was 3:0 up and serving. Surely this is a fixed match if ever there was one.

Never liked Nalbandian but now he has really gone down in my eyes....

It's proven steroids helps baldness...however it's not possible to prove which is what when it happens. ...the strange thing is that soon His father will have more hair than him.

Nadal is scheduled to play in Mexico next (24th of Feb, same week as Dubai), will have to face Ferrer and Wawrinka & Verdasco there, though.

Anyway, i'm happy for Delpo. Imo he'll be ahead of Federer and Nadal in the ranking sometime this year. The guy is so undisturbed regardless what's coming at him. He played very different players this week but managed to play his own game quite easily. That's a sign of autority.
Watching him live (against Gulbis) was fun too. Even though Gulbis is the more flamboyant player, it was great to see how steady Delpo can play which so little net clearance.

Interesting that Murray is not playing Dubai. So, he'll have a massive break between AO and IW....Any theories? ATP 500/250: Rotterdam, San Hose, Sao Paolo - Page 8 123628122

I think that was in my predictions of "the top 5 players thread by RG" thread. However I don't think Delpo will ever beat Djoko consistenty....though I feel Rao and Tomic have the potential.

Agree bout the Djoko part, the constant speed of Delpo's game is something Djoko really likes

One last note about Rotterdam: Richard Krajicek has a good opportunity to become the next chairman of the ATP as the current chairman Brad Drewett has to retire at the end of this year due to ilness. But Krajicek has said he wants to keep his job as tournament director instead. A lot of that has to do with the possibility of Rotterdam becoming a master event. The organizers of Paris Bercy have already said that Rotterdam deserves that status. But it's the question if Paris wants to hand the master slot over to Rotterdam.
I'm all for it!

That's interesting. I remember he was already shortlisted to replace Adam helfant. Why woudl he prefer to be TD than ATP director? strange.

Regarding Rott as TMS sure up for it. Paris is badly timed....but it has been won by many great names....it woudl be sad to replace it. besides I can think of other TMS to be replaced, IW and Miami to start with.

gallery play wrote:One last note about Rotterdam: Richard Krajicek has a good opportunity to become the next chairman of the ATP as the current chairman Brad Drewett has to retire at the end of this year due to ilness. But Krajicek has said he wants to keep his job as tournament director instead. A lot of that has to do with the possibility of Rotterdam becoming a master event. The organizers of Paris Bercy have already said that Rotterdam deserves that status. But it's the question if Paris wants to hand the master slot over to Rotterdam.
I'm all for it!
RG is quite enough for French, I am surely for Master in Rotterdam and keep crossed fingers for you. That would be a great success for Richard as well.

I am having to endure some ultra painful American commentators on tennistv, who are not only blabbing non stop, but are blabbing total rubbish ATP 500/250: Rotterdam, San Hose, Sao Paolo - Page 8 1198964535

Haas is looking pathetic...but beginning to get into the match. He's to good a player to go down in straight sets here.

Too much baseline for my liking. Zero flair, except for the occasional BH from Haas.

On top of telling that one and one makes two in every sentence, Yank commentators now reach the new low by comparing Raonic's potential 3rd consecutive win in San Hose to Nadal's 8 titles in Monte Carlo.

I find Raonic too boring. Other than his serve, he is not spectacular. Yes, he can hit big and unlike some other big servers he can play decent, but take away that serve and he is nothing special. I doubt that will be enough against the very best players.

Raonic has now won four ATP titles - three of them in San Jose. Apparently he has not dropped a set in his three SJ appearances. I am still not sold on him. Let's see how he does over the next few months. We need some of these youngsters to start challenging for the slams properly - like winning them.

The young(er) guard beat the old guard. Still, we had a 30+ year old finalist in each three tournaments. Not bad for the old guys.

I don't mind Raonic, but his tennis really leaves me cold. His personality isn't most engaging, either.
Plenty of other players to make up for it, though and good to have a player like him lurk in the draw.
