    Now I know how Sampras fans feel

    WOW!!! After all these years the truth comes out. Sunny & Anita were the same person. WOW!!! What's it been, 20 years?

    Now I know how Sampras fans feel

    It has. He spent his golden 20s chasing records that were eclipsed within seven years of retirement. Ten years to acquire, seven to lose. Nah, he just had the best numbers. Agassi was the real star!! Sampras never demonstrated true dominance. See Federer/Nadal/Djokovic for examples.

    Now I know how Sampras fans feel

    Pete's TENNIS was boring. It had gotten to the point where he literally tanked his return games save for one. If he couldn't break then he'd save himself for the tiebreak. As a spectator it was a terrible product, and not worth the time or money. There was very little pleasure in watching...

    Nadal vs Medvedev rivalry

    Those of us who play tennis know that when you have a commanding lead (as Nadal did in the USO final), you tend to lose intensity. If the opponent suddenly starts playing better or changes tactics, regaining that intensity can be pretty tough. Some never do... IMO, that was the case in the...

    GAS (The Great Age Shift): Players Who've Been Longer Pros Than Non-Pros.

    I thought the guys from Connors generation played into their late 30s and early 40s. Perhaps Borg & Sampras retiring early was the anomoly, until Agassi started moving things back in the normal direction. Sampras has the records, but it's Agassi who was the true 90s legend. Everyone gave lip...

    Tall, powerful and fast. The next step in the evolution of tennis!

    That's what they were saying 20 years ago when Safin deafeated Sampras at the USO. Yet it was under 6' Hewitt who "dominated" the next two years.

    Medvedev: How Soon to #1 Ranking?

    There have been four Aquarius #1s; McEnroe, Kafelnikov, Safin, Ferrero. I will focus on three. I will look at who they took #1 from, who them gave it to, and whether there was electrical continuity along the Sun-Mars axis. Further I will look at the current holders of the #1 ranking to guage...

    Medvedev: How Soon to #1 Ranking?

    Don't forget the last two great Russians were also Aquarius - Kafelnikov & Safin. Yevgeny won slams, but never a Masters 1000. Safin was expected to finish 2000 as #1, needed one match...just couldn't do it. Guga Kuerten claycourt specialist also won his first hardcourt title on Safin's...

    Medvedev: How Soon to #1 Ranking?

    In the current climate of Djokovic & Nadal, Medvedev doesn't look like the next #1. In front of me is a list of all the ATP number 1s. Astrologically, a consistent flow of current from Nastase to Murray can be observed. This flow takes place along the Sun-Mars axis. In either a conjunction...

    Medvedev: How Soon to #1 Ranking?

    Astrology has long been discredited by science, so... FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY. Medvedev is a zodiac sign Aquarius, this sign is famous for it's unpredictability. Aquarius is opposite of Leo. Leo is ruled by the Sun which provides a predictable and consistent source of light. Aquarius is a...
