Soderpop our long lost friend- why does mononucleosis target tennis players so much
LONDON -- The ATP opposes the U.S. Open's switch to a Monday final in 2013 and is not satisfied with the prize money increase for the tournament.
The U.S. Tennis Association announced last Friday that the women's final would be moved to Sunday and the men's championship match to Monday next year.
While the move builds in a rest day ahead of each final for the first time, the ATP said Monday it was against the change and would continue to fight it.
"The ATP and its players have made it clear to the U.S. Open that we do not support a Monday final," the governing body for men's tennis said in a statement. "We strongly believe the U.S. Open should keep a similar schedule to the other Grand Slams, with the men's semifinals completed by Friday and the final on Sunday.
Thanks glad to see not everyone in the tennis world is on crack what were they thinking, Monday Final bwahahaha. So what happens when the whole of Monday is rained out? They play on Tuesday

Now that is what shorts should look like. Probably a good job they don't wear them today, it would drive me wild!
Regarding the scheduling, Wimbledon does it perfectly, why they don't all do it that way I don't know.
US Open- instead of a Monday final- they should do the SF like all the other slams and not play them back to back with the final- that's been the problem the last couple years- that whole Super Saturday format.- The players should protest to make Open like others. That last Thurs/Fri at the Open is BEYOND BORING!!!!
Just in case you missed this bubblebutt, he sure tried to hide it to no avail
Can't wait to see him back on court next week :)
So excited to have Rafa back
I'd rather have Soderling back :|. No offense to Rafa.
Take that back. I'd like both back at once :p.
I know Soderling is the only guy who looks hot to me with stubble on his face
Sweaaty ass crack
I'm ready for another Ustream #Nole4ulive chat with you guys! How about you? Let's meet on Thursday 20h CET at http://djoke.rs/tv
New season is getting close...hope every1 has had a super holiday!!!
So many great pix from the Branson venue!
Other players on holiday
Marko Djokovic, Johnny Mac, Mike Bryan, Sergey Stakhovsky & Mark Knowles
Can't wait for another season of pictures, your posts keep me happy tennis6.
I think I might be in love with Djokovic which is worrying me slightly ;)
When they're all standing in a line like this, I think Berdych is the best-looking one :luv:.
Oops, just realized that was from October :lol:. Never mind.
Berdych is a great looking guy. I think I mentioned earlier on the thread that when he and his girlfriend looked like a Hollywood couple when they arrived at the O2 finals.
So sad to read Nadal has withdrawn from the AO :(
Gutted too, I suppose the main thing is he doesn't come back until fully fit.
Probably will never reach Federers 18 Slams now he should be winning 2 a year at this age
Tomic has buffed up and looks really good there! Enjoyed watching him against Haas but he's so unpredictable
OMG sorry, that was assholic of me, but I can't help myself when it comes to a couple of players (Tipsarevic and Tomic - both are total douches...)
Everyone entitled to their own opinions so don't worry about it. I like Tomic because he is a character, good or bad I think sport needs them. That's one reason I like Novak and not Federer for example.
I do think Tomic looks good there though ;)
Happy New year 2 all!!!
Here's Fernando & his dad from Perth (I think) & a nice pic of John Millman @ the Brisbane qualies (nice butt John!!)
Wow nice butt from Millman there hope he moves up the rankings and we get to see more of him
Nando is looking slimmer (and better for it). Time will tell where the head's at though which is the bigger problem. He lost his first match in a TB (classic Nando style) so I shan't hold my breath :p.
