i agree wioth you Felipe. already the bowling quality is no more what it used to be last decade, things are getting worse as they are trying to make all pitches batsman friendly. now we get to see very rarely proper home pitches. for exxample india used to have spinning pitches, west indies, south africa had bounce, and what about WACA- it is no more the threat it used to be. this is all thanks to visiting teams coming and complaining and on top of that even home teams getting soft

What´s the reason?
Is "Money" Mayweather afraid? :blink:

Is Pacquiao really as good as people say?
I never saw him fight, because I don´t watch fights below middleweight. Mayweather fights were the exception.

reason: random olympic-style drug testing being pushed by mayweather (anytime within 30 days from fight night - although pacquiao already agreed to within 25 days.)

the mayweather camp is saying that pacquiao is using anabolic steroids, so their insistence on the dope testing procedure.

Now he will face Marcos Baghdatis for a repeat of the 2008 epic match against the Cypriot. I remember that match finished at 4:30 am (won by Hewitt)
Also Federer won easily today :)
And Ivanovic already out :zz:

He will bash him :lol:

Federer managed to reach final 16 times out of 20 grand slams within last 5 years and won 11 of them. Who do you think challenge him? Little Hewitt? :lol:
