    Things that could bring me back to tennis.

    Five months ago, i posted the result of the Wimbledon final was a travesty for tennis and i was done with following the the sport. And my opinion on this has not changed one jot. I haven't seen such an undeserving...

    Thank you and goodbye

    I have lived on this earth for 30 years and i have never witnessed a sporting result that made me want to stop following a sport. I say this as a Man U fan whose witnessed us turn to rubbish (and Liverpool win their sixth champions league.) An England fan who witnessed that abysmal 2015 rugby...

    First tennis robot was Federer

    Lendl was the first tennis robot. Djokovic has taken that mantle.

    Fed has a chance to secure his legacy Sunday

    AO 2017 was the match to secure the GOAT status. The final one before Dimitrov and the next gen took over. Two and a half years later, with the big three having won all the majors since, we are indeed still making these threads.

    Can we agree now that Nadal is way past his prime?

    If they played in the 80's -Federer would have great matches against Prime Mcenroe at Wimbledon. I believe Federer would edge out Becker and Edberg there, particularly the former whose big serving style would play into Federers hands. -Djokovic vs Connors, McEnroe and Lendl at US open would be...

    Can we agree now that Nadal is way past his prime?

    Actually today was peak Nadal, the best he's ever played, and was also Fedrs greatest match. Nadal managed to top his performance in the AO final this year where he also peaked. ^^People who write this BS clearly didn't watch tennis from the previous decade. They probably think Thiem would...

    The greatest problem Nadal has off clay now

    Nadal has no wins over Djokodal off clay since 2014 Australian open (not in any tournament!) He relied on speed to get wins before then. Nowadays he has to be more of a shotmaker to make up for that declining speed. That is great against the rest of the field (he could beat them walking...

    Congratulations Roger! A brilliant win

    -Kyrgios has won about 12% of return games this year. -Querrey is a poor man's Roddick -Tsonga is at 19% for his career and is well past his best. He was abysmal against Rafa -Sugita and Sousa aren't worth mentioning. Your point is spot on ;)

    Big 3s opposition are so bad, we can't assess their form

    Australia 2019. Nadal looked like the GOAT, until he faced Djokovic. Those wins over Tiafoe and Tsit were truly epic. Wimbledon 2019; Nadal looked like the GOAT taking apart old Tsonga and 65th ranked Querrey. Djokovic also looked like the GOAT in that mesmorizing quarter final against...

    Would Rafa have won if he was seeded [2] instead of [3]?

    Exactly right. Clear bias from the seeding commitee cost Nadal the match. Outrageous.

    Now don't tell me Fed is not peaking

    Best Federer performance ever, best Nadal performance ever. They will peak again next year.

    Nadal v Federer over hyped

    This is a terrible match all right. I'd rather watch a re run of Djokovic-Goffin, or one of his beatdowns over Nishikori. True drama.

    Wimbledon 2019 SF: S Williams vs. B Strykova

    I already made a thread talking about this issue. Feel free to add to it ;) This thread though is focused on the Williams - Strykova "match."
