I have the utmost respect for Tiger Woods. Indeed golf is not a sports in the traditional sense of the word however, it is the only game/sports where the only defense you can exercise against your opposition is your own score. Tennis and Golf are two very different sport requiring different skill sets to be successful. It's impossible to cross compare sports majors and argue which is harder to win or which major is equivalent to how many major in other sports. Hard to standardize these things. I enjoy both Tennis and golf and take them for what they are worth. Hitting a one handed backhand winner is just as tough as becoming a good putter... To all those who don't golf is a sport or think it's easy just play a few holes, you will gain a vast amount of appreciation for the PGA pros.

I recently played couple of times with my uncle at a course with mostly par 4s and let me tell you unless you can putt, your other shots mean nothing. I can hit straightish tee shot with a wood most times, I am better with the clubs minus the spin but my short game is absolutely dreadful. I felt as though my score didn't reflect how well I played. I really need some lessons but can't afford it right now.

Golf may not be very "attractive" to watch but it's a very challenging sport. Like that golf commercial says "These guys are good".

Roger came back from the brink of losing in the opening round in Cincinnati. He needs to get his head straight before the US Open.

Ivo was serving like a madman ... nothing Fed could do about that but he got real tight in the 3rd set breaker. Congrats to Dr. Ivo

The loss of top spot would surely be hard for Federer to take. He has been the world No 1 for 235 consecutive weeks, since February 2, 2004.Now he could compete in China as the second seed.

Do you actually like Nadal more than Federer? Both are really humble. Nadal comes off very arrogant and cocky to me even though he is the complete opposite.
I wont bother with these two....Lets go Roddick.

Btw who was the last number one before Roger?

Roddick was for a Brief time, btw were Sampras Stans or I am anyway thing that denies Fed from getting GS #13-15 and helps Pete Stay #1 GOAT discussions. Nadal will soon enter those discussions as well.

So I root for anyone against Fed (Who Still is a Great Player and one GOATS of the sport), I'll soon root against Nadal call him a Green and Red Clay Specialist, who'll never win get the Career Grand Slam.

EDIT: Just watch now that i've typed this he'll do Nadal Slam and win the USO and AO

BTW: This Demise of Federer is greatly exaggerated, he feels more pressure now than he used to thats about it and if he makes 1 forehand he wins in Straights, and Ivo is tough match for anyone

ATP Queen's - Quarter final - Men

I wouldnt call it a demise either. The guy made the finals of the last 2 majors. So ya its not like he has lost it completely. He will win the US ( hopefully not and Roddick wins ). Roger set such a high standard that people are just amazed that he hasnt won a major this year. Also Nadal's popularity in the media has increased a lot. So the media is focusing more on Nadal.

Novak gave Rafa a Beatdown, He's the best HC player in world ... He's going to Avenge last years choke in the USO finals and win it, Nadal HC game is below par I don't know how he hangs with Fed on HC with those loopy Forehands but the other players with the big Forehands always give him real trouble.

What about Murray. Kids getting really good. He really worked hard.

Safina vs someone in Rogers cup final in Montreal.

Murray is playing excellent tennis, failed to convert one break point, but the way he is playing I am sure more break points will come.

Very Good Stuff from Murray, Caught most of the 2nd Set ... Joker was acting all Senile or something, doing his best Safin impersonation. Some Really good Points from both of them those Doubles gave Joker some Confidence to comeback that 4-4 Tiebreak point was crazy, Hopefully this leads to better things for Murray, The more top players the better ... As long as he avoids Nadal he usually does well

Good win for Murray. This is his first Masters series title. He will replace Roddick as world #6 this week.

Federer needs to win US and Year end Masters Cup to salvage his year. It looks like the losses to Rafa really cut him deep.
