    Let's talk a bit about Women's game, your top 5 serve/forehand/backhand in the open era?

    Alicia Molik would make my list for the serve and not far off either groundstroke list. Jelena Dokic on a good day had damaging groundies.

    Let's talk a bit about Women's game, your top 5 serve/forehand/backhand in the open era?

    Yeah I havent payed close enough attention to her matches, and havent seen enough of the others on the backhand list to give an overly accurate assessment, but I know her return of serve off that wing can be lethal, although she can lose balance when cramped. Yeah she just keeps taking a full...

    Let's talk a bit about Women's game, your top 5 serve/forehand/backhand in the open era?

    I think this is quite an accurate list, however I would put Serena lower down on the forehand and I'd put her in the backhand list, it's based on anecdotal evidence, but in some of the matches where she's been upset I remember her netting quite a few forehands. It may be a bigger weapon than the...

    Why isn't synthetic grass used on the pro tour?

    I don't think synthetic grass is a great surface, but that's mainly due to the generally low quality of the courts I've played on. The speed of synthetic grass courts can vary markedly depending on the nature of the pile and amount of sand on the court. A fast syn grass court would favour the...

    Medvedev: Should he be more aggressive?

    Oh right, it just looks like an inconsistent ball toss to me. But I guess I should pay attention to how often he catches it before I pass judgement.

    Medvedev: Should he be more aggressive?

    He can start by fixing his ball toss!

    I'm not really a fan of Stanislas "Stan" Wawrinka.

    Yeah he's arguably the most mardy player on the court since Fish. Just read the earlier posts, beaten to the punch haha

    Why is Golf given more priority than Tennis ? Is it really more popular than Tennis? Do you like it ?

    Golf is a great game to play, but it's not the best spectator sport in my opinion. As mentioned earlier here in Australia tennis garners a lot more spectators both live and television. But I'd imagine golf might have a slightly higher overall participation rate given the number of old gizas that...

    Most Annoying Grunter on ATP Tour?

    Never heard of her (luckily enough- that grunt is in a league of its own), she actually won that match I see, but Kuznetsova squared the ledger years later at Wimby.

    Most Annoying Grunter on ATP Tour?

    In his defense that put him 0-30 down, wouldve been funnier if it was to make it 15-15!

    Most Annoying Grunter on ATP Tour?

    Yeah Ive played people who will suddenly start grunting on a big point (usually a game or break point to them) just to get under your skin. Kyrgios is guilty of this at times.

    Federer won his first major at almost 22, older than Sampras Djokovic Rafa or even Hewitt Roddick and Safin

    I think this is an accurate statement, I even remember reading a quote from the Fed himself in a tennis magazine saying words to the effect of - "At the time (before he'd won any majors) Lleyton was number one and we just assumed he always would be.." This seems hard to believe in hindsight. Its...

    Greatest Choke of All Time? (Poll)

    The three that come to mind for me are; 1) Novotna v Graf in the 1993 Wimbledon final in 1993 6/7 6/4 4/1 game point apparently, 2) The recent Tennys Sandgren v Federer AO 2020 QF? match (was it 7 match points), 3) Coria v Gaudio 2004 FO final.

    Greatest Choke of All Time? (Poll)

    The guy who yelled out "c'mon Roger" during his ball toss at 40-15 could've cost Fed the match, he'd just won a couple of points with the serve and this 1st serve was right on line it just hit below the tape. Some people argue the crowd shouldn't have to be quiet during the points though.
