    Just watched Djokovic's RG presser...

    He will have a good chance of lifting his second French Open title if Nadal loses before the final or if he meets and beats Thiem in the semi final. OP, don't rule out Thiem either. He truly believes he is the second best clay court player today, especially at RG. When he plays well without...

    The French Open draw was perfect,

    You wouldn't see multiple threads about it if Federer or Djokovic had this draw.

    The problem with questions about Rafa's 2017 USO draw

    Fair enough. It was a weak draw like how a weak era 2004-2007 was with no real competition for Federer outside of clay.

    The French Open draw was perfect,

    Give this same draw to Djokovic or Federer, and it becomes a tough draw.

    The problem with questions about Rafa's 2017 USO draw

    Nadal bageled the same Del Potro who had outplayed and outlasted Federer who as seen as a favourite by many Federer fans. Nadal started off the tournament slow but was in top gear by the time he played Del Potro. When Nadal plays that good at USO, only Djokovic has been able to beat him which...

    The problem with questions about Rafa's 2017 USO draw

    Kevin played the best tennis of his career in the tournament. Nadal's level was too strong for him in the final. Roddick obviously was also a much better player at his best than Kevin Anderson. Still, he was a huge underdog against Federer, like how Berdych has been against Nadal. Federer's only...

    The problem with questions about Rafa's 2017 USO draw

    No, it's not his strongest Slam victory. I don't dispute that. However, if you'd watch his matches, you'd have noticed that by the 2nd set of his QF match against Del Potro, Nadal had raised his level, comparable to his 2013 form. He served bigger, hit more DTL forehands at will and making very...

    The problem with questions about Rafa's 2017 USO draw

    Where did I lie? I said, a few missed the tournament due to injuries. Federer played with an injury? He might have. Nadal has played tournaments through injuries before. Delpo played very well in the tournament. He even won the first set against Nadal. It's not Nadal's fault if Delpo ran out of...

    The problem with questions about Rafa's 2017 USO draw

    Enough with this topic. The 2017 US Open had all the top players, excluding a few due to injuries, included in the main draw. The best player of the tournament won it. It was Nadal. Nothing more to discuss here.

    Kyrgios pulled out of RG after the tournament director had said that Nick would be punished in a 'hard way'

    Whatever it was, they made it clear that they don't like Nick either. And Kyrgios eventually pulled out of the tournament. If Kyrgios doesn't get his acts together, he may soon find himself running out of favour with several tournaments.

    Is Laver Cup now bigger than Davis Cup & Tennis at the Olympic ?

    I think it is the new tennis world cup that will replace the current four slams of AO, RG, WC and USO.

    Should pros retire at the top or fade away?

    As a fan, you want your favourite player to retire while still playing at a high level. You don't want to see them struggling against the field. It's painful to go be going through this phase when it happens. That being said, I'd still want my favourite player to play for as long as they want...
