    Emma Raducanu, Coco Gauff, Leylah Fernandez...who is more talented?

    She played a lot of players. But 3 of those were qualifier matches. And she got bailed out. For some reason she didn't face any top seeds until she started facing Bencic. Normally as a qualifier you face names like Serena in the first round. She faced Vogele, Zhang, Tormo. This is highly...

    Emma Raducanu, Coco Gauff, Leylah Fernandez...who is more talented?

    Fernandez's serve is very vulnerable. It's very slow. If she faced a good returner, (and surprised Osaka didn't do more with it) I don't think she would have gotten that far. I think Serena (as much as I hate her) could have beaten Radu, and Fernandez. Fernandez starts to shrink when you...

    Women’s tennis is more exciting right now

    It was exciting because we didn't have to hear Serena Scream or cry if she lost the finals. I think it was exciting because everyone was rooting for a qualifier or some unknown who basically assassinated a bunch of high seeds to get to the finals. It could have been Sabalenka and Sakari in the...

    Speed Pro long term users

    I actually own both and have been using both of them for about a year now. They play completely different and it's easy to get used to one and play well with it and try the other and have your game be thrown off by the transition. Sometimes I'll play with one for an extended period of time and...

    Does Tsitsipas's game actually have ANY upside?

    You know what's funny- This guy was playing a practice set against Tennisfitmen (youtube channel). Tennisfitmen is not even a professional, but trains with pros. He was beating Tsitsipass in a practice set, then Tsisitpass started calling everything out even with balls clearly in. Calling...

    Djokovic asking to be allowed back in the players council

    Guy is trying to make tanking legally accepted. You'll be allowed a maximum of 5 tanks a year.

    What will be your pointless “it was on sale” purchase this year?

    The ezone 98 is actually a really good frame. All the talk about the lack of control is a bit over exaggerated.

    What will be your pointless “it was on sale” purchase this year?

    Man, racquets are becoming so expensive nowadays that I never thought I would see racquets ending in the $150-180 range on e**y. This year the used market was like how much new racquets used to cost. The days where racquets would go for $80-$100 / $120 are really shifting away. It's just been...

    How many slams can Medvedev win?

    I think Nadal's best hard court year was 2013. He made the hard courts look like clay. His service was so heavy and big back then. That was one difference that changed his hard court game. Not sure why he reverted back to his old serve. I think he said it was less consistent. But he's no...

    How many slams can Medvedev win?

    Zverev even in the conversation? Really? This guy is so loose on his consistency. His forehands fly long very often, he's very flighty on his groundstrokes. Often he hits unforced errors when not being put in pressured situations. Normally you make unforced errors when stretched out wide or...

    How many slams can Medvedev win?

    Many, this guy is actually legit. He's very consistent and unlike Davydenko (who was also consistent) he's consistent and has very good power. Davydenko and Ferrer were known for their consistency but they never had any power to turn anything into slam wins. Djokovic is consistent and has...

    Rublev will win slams.

    And what did I say about Rublev vs the top 10 players? Just as I said, and is a foreshadowing to a "told you so." This guy tries to hit it hard and grunts but you can't win against the best by just this mindless hitting. In London he's doing just as I imagined he would compete against the top...

    Djokovic in Tank Mode Again in London

    That's a good question. This is the last tournament of the year. He should be giving it his all. But you see he's not engaged or hustling for any balls. He's not even hitting smart shots. Hitting down the line backhand when stretched out wide is not a smart shot he normally would hit crosscourt...

    Djokovic in Tank Mode Again in London

    You can tell his tank modes just by the mood of the match.
