    Pat the Dog, or not....

    I'd say don't think about it. Build your own style. There are many players with great forehands that doesn't do it. Del Potro for example.

    Most overrated player in the Open Era

    Most of the poll options doesn't make sense. Nadal overrated, how? But I will give you an answer. David Ferrer, hard worker very consistent against those lower ranked but he simply doesn't have enough talent to beat the best, especially not at Grand Slams, h2h 0-17 vs Federer says it all.

    Nick Kyrgios Fan Club

    I am a fan of his game and that's all that matters to me. Who cares about the rest?

    Federer on Kyrgios' underhand serve: no shame in trying it

    Kyrgios leads the way endorsed by Federer. It would be cool if someone actually practised it, Kyrgios attempt didn't even have backspin on it.

    Opelka to win Wimbledon 2019?

    Funny how Opelka is basically an Isner clone but some people seem to think he will have a more succesful career, I don't get the hype.

    Opelka to win Wimbledon 2019?

    It's not all about the serve... if it was Karlovic would have won multiple Wimbledon's already.

    Will Rafa recover mentally from the defeat in Melbourne?

    Of course he will and he can and will beat Novak again. He just came back from injury and still played that good so he will probably get even better.

    Age distribution of all Open Era major finalists

    Federer also had Nadal from 2005 onwards. It doesn't matter if he was supposed to be peak age or not.

    Peak Stanislas Wawrinka is the only player who can beat peak Novak Djokovic today?

    It's all about match-ups. Peak Wawrinka can beat peak Djokovic and still lose to non-peak Federer.

    In 2002 Pete Sampras set such a lofty, unattainable record of 14 slams, I thought it would never be equaled. 17 years later....

    It's not really fair to make comparisons since they changed from 16 seeds to 32 seeds. It was harder back in Pete's day.

    Where does the 2019 Australian Open final rank among Djokovic's finest performances?

    Obviously very good but it's hard to say because I don't think Rafa was anywhere close to his best. He seemed bothered by something and it was not only Djokovic, maybe he had some physical problem because he was not moving well.

    Is Novak Djokovic now greater than Nadal?

    No. Rafa is one year older than Novak and has won two more slams. Djokovic needs to win two more slams this year to be on par with Rafa at the same age. If he wins three more this year then yes. Makes sense no?

    Is this Peak Rafa!?

    Of course not his peak but I think Wawrinka already proved it is possible to play peak tennis past 30 so therefore I didn't cast a vote.
