    What's the title of the video (I need to use a proxy :s)?

    What aspect of Sampras' game made him such a weak opponent at the French Open?

    Yeah he was about average. He actually had a decent record at RG too until '96 (made a few QFs and the lone semi).

    Rogi is winning WTF this year

    I would say Federer is sure to beat Ferrer but he could lose to any of the rest. As a Federer fan, Berdych scares me because he can overpower Federer. And Cilic also obviously showed he can do the same. At least with Djokovic, you feel like Federer can dictate play (though he would be the...

    What aspect of Sampras' game made him such a weak opponent at the French Open?

    It's not that Sampras couldn't beat good players on clay - he just didn't have it in him to string together 7 consecutive 5-set matches on the surface. In that he's similar to Andy Murray who has come very close to beating Djokovic/Murray on clay - but he's vulnerable against a lot of other guys...

    Rankings scenarios for YE#1 in 2014

    Is there an "official" YE no. 1? It's just the player with the most points at the end, right? And that could be the guy who has the most points after DC. But if there is an "official YE#1" then I have the same questions as you...

    Can anyone help me select a racquet that's similar to Head's iPrestige?

    Interesting. I personally feel comfortable with the "Head" brand, having played with it for about 8 years now. But I would give the Tour G a shot if I had access to it. Thanks for your feedback. Alright I will see if I can try that. Thanks for that insight!

    Can anyone help me select a racquet that's similar to Head's iPrestige?

    Yeah it cracked. Hmm other people also seem to be suggesting the same racquet. I unfortunately don't have a place I can try racquets in Pakistan but perhaps I can find someone who has those sticks. Thanks for the tip! Hmm my brother has the standard size Prestige (the one after...

    Can anyone help me select a racquet that's similar to Head's iPrestige?

    Thanks Hankestein - I hadn't really considered buying second hand racquets, but if I can get a couple that haven't been used much then might as well. What does pro-stock mean? Is it the exact same racquet or just similar? Anyway, I will try to find out more about it.

    Can anyone help me select a racquet that's similar to Head's iPrestige?

    I have been playing with two Head iPrestige racquets since 2006, one of which met its demise a few weeks back. I am afraid the second one's about to retire as well, and so am looking to buy replacements. Unfortunately, these racquets are no longer in production, and so I need advise on what...

    The official "I cringe whenever" thread....

    2010 or so onwards, I cringe every time I see Federer attempting to come over his backhand over and over again. He usually can't keep more than 4-5 balls in play at a time. I think that's the biggest reason for his decline. In his prime he used to go toe to toe with the likes of Agassi and Safin...

    Federer's forehand

    Federer's forehand

    I don't think it's atrocious. It may look that way to you if all you do is watch his matches played between 2004-06 but the game has changed. In any case I think he's hitting it really well compared to how he was hitting it against Wawrinka.
