NBA Awards – Tues 11/13/12

November 13, 2012

Monday Night Activity Milwaukee (4-2) took down the 76ers 105-96 in Philly behind a stellar Brandon Jennings performance as the Philly front line (L. Allen, Th. Young, S. Hawes) was quite mediocre…Detroit (0-8) almost got their 1st win of the season in an improbable manner as they took an 11 point lead into the 4th […]

Djoker/Nadal – Epic Capper to 2011 US Open

September 13, 2011

If the Djokovic service return down match point at 3-5, 15-40 in the 5th set vs. Federer was the signature shot of the tournament, then yesterday’s Djoker/Nadal final was the signature match for this era’s style of accurate, heavy, bludgeoning groundstrokes.

Quickie Recap today: Wawrinka did indeed take Tsonga out in 5 sets, but spotted the Frenchman a 2 set advantage first. Tsonga was two points away from winning the match in the 3rd set tiebreaker, but eventually ended up netting a basic forehand to give the set to Wawrinka.

Todd’s Tennis Takes…Fed/Djoker @ Indian Wells

March 18, 2011

What a great semi!!!!! Novak has taken the last 5 sets in this rivalry, is a rather strong favorite (bet 700 to win 400), and has buried the competition here and everywhere in 2011 – still hasn’t lost this year, 16-0. But Fed is Fed…still capable of flashback performances so long as he doesn’t have […]
