    Haha you guys must agree that Asia should produce more quality tennis players, India have Paes, Bopanna, Bhupathi, Mirza, but really I don't understand why tennis is not promoted at all in sub continent and south east Asia. Especially considering they're good at Cricket, Hockey, Badminton etc

    I agree, whereas india has these player, they mainly play doubles anyway. I think the is a need for more single players from asia, if I ever get an opportunity to play, I will most definately play for Pakistan, becoming the first everto play international tennis.

    But yeah, it would be much interesting. I think tennis itself is promoted more in european countries and america.

    You can choose if you have dual citizenship, I might be wrong but if your parents were born in Pakistani and you were born here then it means you have dual citizenship. Don't know about you but I'd choose the country I've lived in for most of my life and identify as.

    Federer almost gave me a heart attack today. He still needs weeks to get used to the new racket.

    Because it's all about cricket over there which I don't quite understand. Tennis is miles better than cricket but still all they care about is cricket. So boring!

    I'll summarise:

    Good first set - good serving, no shanks at all, composed in the tie-break

    Second set: exact opposite. Lot of shanks and disinterested returns, a few good shots and wtf was going on with that jumper?!

    Third set: poor at the start, gave away two breaks of serve, but played cleanly overall and was brilliant in the big moments. Served out to love, which is good.

    So, it's still a consistency issue.

    Which sport is better will always be a personal opinion, but they have large numbers of people over there, hence no reason why talent should not be able to emerge over time, if facilities and coaches are in place. Btw I was talking about South East Asia as well, where neither cricket nor tennis are widely played

    I just hope Fed didn't hurt his back but that jumper was classic LOL though.

    And Fabio Fognini makes it through to the Hamburg final with a win over 2nd seed Almagro. Tipsarevic, meanwhile carries on losing - how on earth he managed to reach the Top 8 is beyond me.

    Its a shame because I like tipsy as a player. However he has been pretty non existing since the world tour finals, as if it finished him - he was so bloody poor and frustrating against Troicki at Wimbledon!

    Not sure if I'm correct on this but if Anderson wins in Bogota I think it will be the first time ever there isn't an American in the ATP top 20.

    Federer loses to Delbonis in two-tiebreak sets. He didn't play badly, but he was too conservative at times and allowed Delbonis to play his absolute best tennis and dictate a lot of points. On to Gstaad next week - needs to get more practice in, although I would have much preferred for him to play a warm-up hard court tournament.

    Please retire Federer or give it your all. It's so depressing seeing him lose to players outside the top 100. What has gone wrong in the space of 6 months? Until the AO this year, he was fine but it has been a downhill slope since then. Fix up Roger!
