Rory McIlroy. The best player on the planet by a considerable distance. Could quite easily do the grand slam of all four majors this year.
The 2015 tennis season begins on Monday from Melbourne.
12 months ago Stan Wawrinka beat Rafael Nadal to win his first ever Grand Slam tournament in the men's event and in the women's event, the now retired, Li Na beat Dominika Cibulkova.
I would be surprised if we see any of those players...
Sad to see him playing so poorly. I don't think much of him as a person, but as a golfer he was one of the best!
Question - do you ever see him regaining his status as the one to beat? I really don't think so. His swing now has too many 'issues' and his chipping is very poor. Worse than Hunter...
whos looking forward to the season on both accounts then?? What are peoples tips on Play-off contenders and overall winners? Is?
I feel i dont know the teams very well but i will be biased go for The Packers making the superbowl
dont know about the NCAA though :hmmm:
I couldn't believe my eyes to see Alec Marshall giving it the big 5-1 gesture when picking up his trophy at the bowling competition. I never had the sound up, so tell me please that I've misinterpreted his stupidity. :-(
A few Hibees watching Murray today , anybody know them ?
Brendan McCullum 195 for the Kiwis, and Steve Smith 192 for the Aussies.
And Faf Du Plessis and Dean Elgar for SA. (Mind you, I always thought that guy Elgar was a bit of an Enigma ...)
And I think we'll see something special from Sri Lanka in the second innings.
About 18 hours of...
well done gary anderson rumoured to be one of us winning the world darts title.:flag::top marks
Now that all the places have been taken up I Thought it would be better to start a new thread with this.
The Draft: The draft will be an offline draft made on this thread and i will input the players into the appropriate teams once the draft is complete. I think the draft will be the most...
Anderson having one of his messy matches here, just get it finished man!
Great to see a Hibs fan winning a world title in any sport but to beat someone with a record like Taylor was fantastic.
Well done to Gary Anderson beating Phil Taylor in the darts world championship. Tweet by Judy Murray saying he is a Hibee.
Saracens doing some work to monitor effects of head knocks on players.
Good to see. Was there not a case in Scotland were a footballer tried to sue for the effects of heading a ball over the years? Don't think he was successful.
Always a day to look forward to with quality NH Nags thrown in.
Settled into Platform 5, things may be messy by the time Gary Anderson starts tonight @ The Ally Pally.
Game on! :-)
Whats the opinion on this? Will he fail as he is a 'Fake' Wrestler or will he do well and make a name for himself in another sport?
Who is staying up for this one.
Any idea what time the fight will start at roughly.
Anyone watching tonight?
Looking forward to the Saunders v Eubank fight particularly. Really no idea who's going to win, Saunders has experience, has a strong amateur background and has fought infinitely better fighters as a pro but Eubank looks a bit special. Real 50/50 fight imo.
Started tonight on SS3, always good entertainment.
Anyone else going?
Johnnie Walker will be in Edinburgh on December 4th for a Join the Pact driving spectacular with two-time F1 World Champion Mika Häkkinen and 2014 McLaren Mercedes drivers Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen.
Great win for Anderson v Taylor there, 10-6 and through to the semis.
Not everyone's cup of tea I know, but the new Winter Biathlon World Cup Series starts this Sunday with a Mixed Relay in Sweden - you can catch it live on Eurosport at 2:30pm.
Biathlon really is a great sport to watch and one of the few that give equal billing to the men and the women. Please...
Does anyone know what the best place is to view the GP? Looking at tickets and wondering if you're as well paying for the general admission for the full weekend or if it's better to pay a bit more to get the Pits Straight for Sunday only?
This weekend sees the final, controversial double points, race of the Formula 1 season.
Despite only one team being involved in the final shoot out, where the drivers apparently now hate each other after having been suckled from the same karting breast, there's loads going on down the 'league'...
The final of the Davis Cup is held this weekend between France and Switzerland. The first match today is between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Stan Wawrinka. It looks as if Switzerland will go 1-0 up in the tie as Wawrinka has just taken the first set 6-1.
Roger Federer is looking to win the Davis Cup...
Whats the thoughts on this one then?
Just watching Ringside just now. I think Cleverley is going to win due to Bellew spontaneously combusting at the first bell!
The final event of the 2014 tennis season started today and Andy Murray is in action right now in his first group match against Kei Nishikori.
Things are looking good for Murray right now as he's broken early to take a 3-2 lead in the first set.
Roger Federer v Milos Raonic is on this evening.
Barao vs dillashaw 11 this Saturday. The first fight was one of the best fights of the year. If anyone hasn't watched ufc before this wk ends a good time to start. I love it.
Any of the golf boys got an opinion on this? Couldn't see past Clarke anyway but this won't help Jiminez.
48 years old and just won yet another world title.
Total d1ckhead but what a fighter.
May I be the first to say this year, I ****ing hate this game!! Until the weekend medal anyways. :)
The "Route du Rhum" race kicked off from my bit this afternoon. There are 81 competitors sailing single handed the 4,500 miles from St Malo to Guadeloupe. The event takes place every 4 years but this is the first time I've really caught the bug (maybe because the crowd I work for 'built' one...
So the opening day has come and gone (I didn't bother starting this during Spring Training and the WBC as I've otherwise been busy) the past 2 days and the Summer sport is underway (if only the weather would now join it - looked positively freezing, particularly in Minnesota last night!). Houston...
Just won another title in Valencia & playing a Spanish player & crowd! Possibly the bravest & most skilful performance I've seen from a Scottish sportsman since Kenny Buchanan beat Ismael Laguna in Panama. If I was LD or AS I'd move heaven & earth to get Andy in to talk to the players & even take...
I'm going to see them for the first time on Friday, has anyone been before? What should I expect in terms of crowds etc? Do you pay at the turnstiles like football or do they have a ticket office?
New set up this seaon, that favours England.
I see in the 5 groups, there are seven English, six French teams, with only one from Scotland and Italy, three Irish teams and two Welsh teams.
Yet, by the end of this week it is unlikely that there will be any English team top of any of the five...
Anyone watch it and see those punches?
I think this is a link to it (can't verify it form my work) www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrPBnxacK2Q
Lengthy ban coming his way!
Could tonight be the first time that both players in the same match have scored a nine dart finish? Messrs Wade and Thornton take a bow, fantastic viewing! Double start as well, amazing.
For those of a certain age who followed F1 when this guy drove, he has been sadly killed in a motorbike accident. I don't think he ever won a race but was certainly a regular in F1 for several seasons.
:grr: I flicking hate darts.
Just threw 18 of the blighters and hit scores of 100, 26, 140, 3, 100 and 36 :rolleyes:
Anyway, got tickets for the Masters at Ingliston for November 1st evening session. Anyone else going along?
Really looking forward to this. I think the price on an American win has been a tad too generous. It's starting to shrink a bit from around the 3.00 it was on Betfair, but still 2.80+ available. The last 2 have been very close and I'm expecting the same here.
