    How many active players are better on grass than Sam Querrey?

    "I think Querrey would be the favorite in at least some of these matchups, but fair enough. In any event, the point of this thread wasn't so much to assign Querrey a particular rank as much as it was to point out how shallow the pool of good grass court players is at the moment."

    How many active players are better on grass than Sam Querrey?

    How many of those players would you be confident picking over Querrey now, though?

    How many active players are better on grass than Sam Querrey?

    First of all, I'm not saying he's the 5th-best grass courter. I'm saying there aren't more than 4 players definitively better and posing the question whether he's the 5th-best (in a somewhat tongue in cheek fashion, no less, as indicated by the all caps). Do you think my very posing of the...

    How many active players are better on grass than Sam Querrey?

    It just dawned on me that it's a pretty short list. How long is that list exactly, though? My list: - Djokovic - Federer - Nadal - Raonic I'm sure there are others who'd be a toss up against Querrey, but who else is definitively better? IS SAM QUERREY REALLY THE FIFTH-BEST GRASS COURTER IN THE...

    Players who are much older or younger than you initially thought

    Struff was the first person who came to mind when I saw this thread. He looks 22... Some others: Older than I thought - Maria Sakkari (24) - Dusan Lajovic (29) - Vasek Pospisil (29) - Federico Coria (28) - Petra Martic (29) Younger than I thought - Ernests Gulbis (31) - I thought he was...

    As somebody who builds web things for a living, I'll say I'm not a fan of tennis dot com from an aesthetic standpoint. Honestly, though, a simple font change to something more readable would go a long way. The layout isn't awful. I don't consume tennis dot com's content, so I can't offer any...

    Roger Federer takes on the Internet

    These sorts of zero-stakes situations offer the best glimpse into just how competitive great athletes like Roger are. There was a real fire in his eyes during this completely inconsequential game.

    Who is the more of an unfulfilled talent : Safin vs Del Potro

    It's undeniable, in my view, that Safin left more on the table. He could've owned that post-Sampras, pre-Federer era (and even infringed on some of peak Fed's turf), whereas even if Delpo reached his potential and stayed healthy, he's probably still only the 4th-best player of his era at best...

    Nole fans, which victories are more enjoyable: those against Roger or Rafa?

    I'm not sure he has a Thiem problem at Roland Garros (beyond the extent that Thiem is an excellent player and therefore always a threat). I'd like to see Thiem beat an in-form Novak under normal conditions before I say Novak has a problem. Thiem has yet to do so.
