    Margaret Court Continues to Stay Ahead of the Pack at 24

    Clearly, Margaret Court had a great career. Clearly, she has been eclipsed by Serena's modern game and longevity as GOAT. However, there is the reality that 24>23 and when they show the graphics they have to be honest and show that the old "racist homophobe" has won more major singles titles. I...

    Margaret Court Continues to Stay Ahead of the Pack at 24

    Can't one just be a homophobe and not a racist too? Or do they go together like red hair and freckles?

    Margaret Court Continues to Stay Ahead of the Pack at 24

    I think it is hilarious that Margaret continues to be the all time winningest woman at the majors. Serena has reached three major finals in the last 12 months and won 0 sets in those matches.

    Why did Venus and Serena's careers diverge so much?

    Its not the US Open officials that are the problem. It's her.

    Alexandra Stevenson retired?

    Wow I forgot about her too. Looking at her stats, after she had her 99 Wimbledon run she played 19 more major tournaments. She reached the 2nd round at only 4 of them.

    Osaka's decision to split with Bajin!?

    What Bouchard and Osaka have in common is that they went on a roll; Bouchard reached 2 straight major semis and a major final on 3 different surfaces and then a QF showing at the Open and she hasn't been the same. Tennis is a lot of mental toughness; 1) you believe you can't be beat 2) your...

    Osaka's decision to split with Bajin!?

    Let's remember Eugenie Bouchard. She had great results and after getting pasted in that Wimpy final hasn't been the same since in YEARS. Naomi had even better results but sometimes when the wheels fall off they never come back.

    Is Navratilova Underrated? Why?

    Actually Evert was only 31 when she won the 86 French in June and turned 32 in Dec

    Daniel Vellverdu Working with Stan Wawrinka Now

    Stan, here is some free grass court advice. Hit 100% of your first serves in at Wimbledon. Then and only then you might have a chance and John Isner your way to the title. Thanks goodness you can win sets 13-12 now in the 5th.

    No excuses, 'nuff said!

    I think Nadal is still the clear favorite. Roger, however, has the larger racket and some recent success against Nadal. I think it is definitely a war of wills. Roger CAN beat Rafa anywhere even RG. However, how likely is that? We will know in the second set. Even is Roger wins the first set...

    The next American grand slam winner? Is he currently playing?

    Playing? I dare say he hasn't even been conceived.

    3rd Round: Goffin will beat Nadal at RG19

    They play the matches for a reason. I trust that Rafa will win but you never know. Here's hoping that Goffin gives him a match.

    Is Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slams still inflated?

    After Rafa has to play two qualifiers to advance in the 2019 French we shall see if he wins. If he does win the whole thing it should be "critiqued" as some of Court's Aussie wins are to be fair.

    Did Hingis rise to dominance too easily for her own good?

    Martina simply got out slugged. She could not play several matches in a row where she had to survive a barrage of heavy hitting. 2 rounds maybe 3 but not more than that and certainly not in a row.

    RG draw - present your fav's worst scenario

    I disagree. I don't think he gets "outlasted". I think he can only be beaten if he is just hit off the court. The only way to beat him is to go for it and force the issue. If you miss you lose but you are gonna lose anyway so be the master of your destiny and go for the winners and forcing...
