  1. What an atrocious performance by Argentina. So amateurish. There's no way they are qualifying now.
  2. Argentina on the verge of elimination.

    Braveheart vs Gladiator

    Gladiator. Everything was memorable. The performances(Russel and Joaquin), the dialogues(my name is maximus... Gave me goosebumps), the soundtrack, the story and the fight scenes,the direction etc And to top it all even though Gladiator was fictional, was historically accurate and realistic when based on Roman tradition and history, whereas braveheart is known for its historical inaccuracies despite being based on a real incident. Its probably the most famous and award winning film to have so much inaccuracies. Gladiator can be watched again and again. It has achieved cult status. In fact the only historical war films to be compared with Gladiator are Ben-hur,spartacus,Kingdom of Heaven(directors cut).

    Is Indian Tennis Scene ever going to pick up?

    Yea but back then tennis was less physical. Mostly finesse. Plus it was serve and volley right? And wooden rackets were the norm. Now tennis is a completely different ball game. For the last 20 years or so we have had only 1 player in the top 100 every generation. Paes,Devarraman,now bhambri.
  5. In terms of singing quality Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is one of the highest in the sub continent. His ability to hit high notes and 6 octave vocal range is incredible. Maybe Sanu is better in the romantic songs because I've never heard NFAK singing romantic so I cant judge. Hariharan is a great romantic and melodious singer. He has a much soothing voice. Here in the south he sings regularly and has given many great romantic hits that have acquired cult status. Even Abhijeet sings romance well. KK is very good as well. In the old days Kishore and Rafi gave many romantic hits.
  6. Lol no. Udit Narayan is a much better singer from the 90s. There are much better singers than him. Rafi, Kishore Kumar,Abhijeet,Sonu Niham,KK(perhaps the most underrated),Yesudas,Shankar Mahadevan,Manna dey,mukesh,Hemant Kumar,Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Hariharan were all better than him. Sanu da was a good singer but not one of the best. His singing was mostly nasal and copied from Kishore Kumar usually.

    WIMBLEDON 2018 discussion (and grass tune ups)

    Yea it would be nice for an Indian to make the semis of a major tournament at least. For the last few years or so it's been first round or second round at best with the odd quarter finals at a 250 or 500.

    WIMBLEDON 2018 discussion (and grass tune ups)

    Yea but it jus wouldn't make sense for the ATP to organise a masters on the same city and same surface of a GS just a week before it. I don't think anyway the infrastructure will allow it for promotion. Yea, I agree by the time a grass masters is added federer will have probably retired. He wouldve had around 35+ masters right now had it been added long ago. The lack of a decent grass season and removal of carpet courts, slowing down of surfaces have really reduced the variance of the tour. It's only because we were perhaps in the strongest tennis era of all time the last decade of so, which has made for the lack of variety in the tour schedule. As for Indian tennis, I agree but I don't think Gunneswaran will be the one. He's 28 now.

    Couple of good wins by the Indian journeymen the last few months. Is this a sign of coming of age for Indian tennis?

    I don't think it will be good for the tour if atp finals,wimbledon,and a master title all held in London. There will be too many complaints. Plus I think Queens doesn't have the parking space plus the facilities that a master's event has. Halle is much bigger with more parking. Plus Germany being one of the biggest tennis nations deserve a master's event. They have been robbed of one ever since Hamburg got degraded to a 500 and Stuttgart got removed. A Masters event in Germany will generate a lot of revenue and popularity. The only advantage Queens has is it is more older and prestigious. Also, Gunneswaran(#169) defeats Shapavolav in his first ATP main draw event. If he wins his next match he will face federer in the quarter final.

    Queen looks too stacked. Makes Halle look like a 250 in comparison. Which is ironic because Halle is the most likely to be promoted to a grass masters event in the future.

    French Open 2018

    Roland Garros is starting on Monday. Nadal the favorite as usual. But have a feeling Djokovic, thiem,zverev will come good. Even Del Potro and Fognini can pull off a surprise.

    Nole is not a pusher, he's more of a grinder. I believe it's not possible to get away with pushing in the top level of men's tennis. A person who is solely a pusher cannot be ranked in the top 1000. Even Monfils and Simon are not purely pushers in the traditional sense. Monfils is actually more of a servebot. He relies more on his serve.

    French Open 2018

    Match depends on the conditions and Thiems mentality in the final. Also on how his 1HBH will fare.
  15. I6MTW

    French Open 2018

    Well Thiem is the last hope.

    In uso 18 they are going to enforce the 25 second rule. Let's see what happens there.

    French Open 2018

    This is the level of Nadal this year. Losing a set to schwartzman. He might've lost the second as well if rain didn't come to save his ass.

    French Open 2018

    Maybe in terms of sets dropped. But Nadal was never tested. His level in 08,10,and even 13 was much better.He insanely raised his level. The Clay competition is extremely weak last few years. So that's why nadal didn't need to be near his best last two years. These versions of Nadal are just feasting on this field.
  19. I6MTW

    French Open 2018

    Nadals form is nowhere near his best. Hes dominating because of the depleted Clay field. Thiem is the only threat to him. This is not 2008 or 10 Nadal. Hell, this version of nadal isn't even better than 17 Nadal.
  20. I6MTW

    French Open 2018

    Which is why the overcast conditions and the wet muddy Clay will help against Nadals topspin. In this tournament I'm supporting basically anyone except Nadal. Not a fan of djoker either. Favourite tennis player is federer. I do like a lot of other players but feds no 1 for me. Favourite Grand Slam is Wimbledon and Australian open. Favourite masters is IW. I do follow WTA but I feel it's become a joke in the recent years, theres no consistency and lack of quality has declined.

    French Open 2018

    As of now it's delpo cilic and schwartzman Left in his draw. Schwartzman might not win but he will definitely tire him out and grind to his level best. Nadal may not have ever lost to Diego but he has lost the match after he played Diego many times(eg.uso 15,ao 18,madrid 18). So there is a small chance he maybe exhausted after getting through. Now if he were to face delpo after that then I'd give del Porto a fighting chance. He has the height and the power to trouble nadal. Plus the conditions will get worse as per the forecast. Cilic has no chance if he comes through. He doesn't have the game to trouble nadal on Clay. If nadal reaches the final I hope it's either zverev or thiem. I don't want Nadal to win his 11th but I don't think Nole suddenly peaking in the final and winning his DCGS is better. He doesn't deserve that after his form the past year or two.

    French Open 2018

    But actually players in Nadals half have been in better form than the players in the other half. Zverev is barely scrapping through to the quarters. This level is not enough to beat Nadal. Djokovic hasn't been that good. He got a nice draw to the semis, but his level is nowhere near his best. Thiem is the only player who's in form. But the players in Nadals half like fognini, del Potro,isner,cilic,schwartzman are all in good form and can trouble nadal.
  23. Who out of those two teams are likely going to have a better test future? Afghanistan has a very good bowling lineup but batting is probably one of the worst out of the associate nations. On the other hand Ireland batting is pretty decent despite poaching by England. Bowling seems average

    French Open 2018

    So many withdrawals. 8 LLs so far. Had gunneswaran stayed instead of going to play a challenger he wouldve qualified as 8th in place of kyrgios. We couldve had 2 Indians in the MD. Now it's not possible.
  25. No thread on this? A serious outbreak in Kerala. Nipah virus is one of the most dangerous diseases in the world. No cure or treatment.
