    Nadal has lost his legs.

    Any possible for quick decline other than age? Why would he suddenly lose his legs over the last year or so? Anyone?

    Will Serena Williams win a grand slam by winning all 4 grand slam titles this yearÉ

    Yes, but more a result of thin quality of WTA rather than ability of Serena

    Why is Kevin Anderson labeled RSA (Republic of South Africa)? It is my understanding he is now a United States Citizen. Varvara Lepchenko, a naturalized United States citizen is listed as USA? Anyone know or am I wrong that Anderson is a USC?

    The PopSocks

    little shaky at the end. Had 3-4 match points on their racket and mishit. Glad to see them pull thru. Always good to see team that enjoys playing win rather than a dour business like team.

    The Resurrection of Donald Young?

    Pretty sad state of U.S. tennis when DY is hope of entire country to make sure not shut out by 3rd round. I know Sam Querry still left. No U.S. male will make the 2nd week of a grand slam-again. I'm depressed.

    Has Nadal proved he is the best of his era?

    Although I see Nadal as the best of the last 5 years, i do have several comments 1. Before I crown him GOAT he needs to win at least one grend slam (all 4 in one year). Laver's 2 Grand Slams will probably never be equalled 2. Much as I love his play, I am not sure Nadal's body will hold up...

    Rank the slams in order of personal enjoyment/satisfaction

    Will Nadal win another slam

    Obviously the question is whether Nadal will win another slam other than the French Open. As a 7 time FO winner and 3 time defending Champ at FO, i'll go out on a limb and say he has another FO title in the tank. Given his playing style which is very hard on the body, I think the poster who...

    Fed Roddick final

    Not gonna happen, but what a perfect way to exit the stage. I'd be pulling for AROD. For all the grief he has gotten (on this board) he die win one and has 4 additional finals appearances. It would be a nice finish-and guarantee highest TV ratings for USO ever.

    Who will be the first to win one slam 8 times?

    Rafa with 2 qualifiers. 1. If his body holds up 2. If Donald Young doesn't beat him to it!!!!!!!!
