If the waiter barman or whoever has gone out of their way, to provide a service that exceeds their basic job description
Absolutely I always tip.The diference is between,. A good waiter and a great waiter, can certainly enhance your dining experience, you see most of the time service isn't included in your dining experience , so anything in anticipating the customers needs ,from getting a toothpick to topping up the wine,is conducive to the outcome of the dining experience..

They can bow out with their heads held high, very unlucky not to advance to the quarters after winning 3 of 4 matches
espescially beating the springbokks in the opener,..

Give the guy a break , he come up against a very dangaerous benoit paire who has won a couple of challengers recently and his ranking doesn't really reflect it.. As for Kei he's not going to sweat it over, he already has two 500 titles for the year , and reached the final in Acapulco against ferrer, got to remember there are many great tennis players who have never won a major, Berdych ,Tsonga, Gasquet , Ferrer, just to name a few, Kei will win one soon, everyone is focused on his ranking, win matches and ranking points take care of themselves, atleast his fresh for the asian swing now where he can defend his Rakuten open 500 title..

Perhaps a "responsible service of alcohol" program and or training, could be introduced as it has been in Australia for many years,
I don't know exactly to what extent in Japan that would work, but they could give it a go and see how the results are i one year...

He puts Australian tennis to shame , he has to get that bogan attitude out of himself, and just let the raquet do the talking,
Hopefully this fine will make him realize how to play tennis with dignity and respect for your opponent.. not too mention all the other young kids looking up to these players..

"you sort of walk away empty handed" federer said,

"The greatest female tennis player who has ever played!!??? C'mon guys really
That title belongs to the ever great Martina Navratilova,
!8 grandslam singles titles , 31 Major womens doubles titles,10 major mixed titles,
167 singles titles, 177 doubles titles, has a career grandslam in all possible categories, singles, doubles and mixed,
plus she served and volleyed, a lot more exciting than the womens game today, big runts from the back of the court,
anyway that's just my opinion...

Yep that sounds about right, They get exactly the same amount of prize money as the men, they play the best of three sets, as to the best of 5 sets for the men, plus they get the heat break!!! They want the same as the ATP but not willing to go through what the men do....
