    Poll: Re: Great strokes. Return of serve. ATP.

    Poll: Re: Great strokes. Return of serve. ATP.

    Just last night I read an article about the best % in return of serve:

    Nadal and Schwartzman lead.

    Per the ATP website, Nadal and Djokovic.

    Numbers don't lie. I go with Rafa.

    I understood Omess. Still, are we throwing someone under the bus for taking an hour to change her opinion?

    Wait. The scandal is because she had it up for 60 minutes?! I mean, that's it?

    So she was probably unaware of something and it took her all of 60' to hear about it, understand and recapacitate?...

    But why should she? She wasn't familiar with the background it has in one place in the world (which she isn't from). So if someone had to explain it to her, I don't see what's wrong with that.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Now, honestly, if it is done in the modern sense, why would it be bad? It's not emphasizing stereotypes...

    Roger, but only because I'm not familiar with most of them.

    Also, I think Rafa's is up there too, completely underestimated though not the best ever.

    Sorry, but don't they call it "tierra batida" in Spain?


    They also call it Arcilla here indistinctly.

    Is there any chance that Thiem's remarks got distorted in translation?

    I really hope so, because I like him but he's doing himself no favors lately.

    Roger. Rafa's lands too short too many times.

    If they were available I would've gone with Gonzalez or Delpo though.
