    Is Steffi Graf a higher GOAT than Margaret Court?

    Evert would be inclined to agree, as that was why she retired -- only "actual" mental toughness. Continuing would surely hurt one's win-loss record. But you can only add titles to your résumé. I can understand where you're coming from.

    Which players have an ugly, but very effective shot?

    Niculescu and her forehand always struck me as odd. Though there was something neat about its effectiveness as well.

    Is Steffi Graf a higher GOAT than Margaret Court?

    He was a reason I joined this community; everyone was supposedly one of his accounts. Watch them slandering Rhino :-D https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/best-annual-win-loss-stats-in-last-20-years-women.60804/ I have some genuine comments to make on the subject of a comparison...

    Is Steffi Graf a higher GOAT than Margaret Court?

    The funny thing is, they nearly all remain for how vitriolic they were. Nowadays, every honest discussion about Serena is deleted beyond a day or so.

    What is it that makes Rafa so GOATy on clay?

    I don't like him...he wins too much.

    Was 2011 the best year of the 00s?

    How do you folks pronounce these in your heads? :-D

    SERENA WILLIAMS WILL NOT STOP UNTIL SHE AT LEAST EQUALS GRAND SLAM RECORD - PATRICK MOURATOGLOU

    I had a flashback to 1999 as I saw that match, and I'm sure she did too. A terrible feeling for sure, to know you're outclassed and past your best days. She's still a legend, but I hate to see a legend try their best and have no chance due to age.

    Let's NEVER say Fed's competition was weak

    The dangers of mental strain. The more you worry about winning a match, the quicker you'll find your energy sapped than even if you went in with lower expectations. Djokovic had high expectations and high confidence like a champion. Medvedev had high expectations but equally high doubts and...

    SERENA WILLIAMS WILL NOT STOP UNTIL SHE AT LEAST EQUALS GRAND SLAM RECORD - PATRICK MOURATOGLOU

    There are reasons to. But I believe she also fears the ridiculing will grow out of control if she resigns from her quest early. That to her, the attempt and fail may also damage her legacy.

    It's scary to think that without 2020 cancellation, Djokovic is approaching Pete Sampras at Wimbledon now...

    You're right, of course. Modern medicine would have greatly prolonged his stay -- though if I recall, a large part of the retirement was the result of a fading interest. With that given, I still would be wary to put Pete on the same level, even with modern medicine. While he's an ATG, we have to...

    Rate your all time Top 10 Clutch / Top Players under pressure.

    That's hilarious and tells you two things: the first being that your rating will inevitably slip the more matches you play. Someone who gets lucky when expected to lose 1/1 matches will have the best rating possible, but you can't win the slots forever. Moreover, this is why I don't trust...
