    Because he is a sinner.

    Korda vs. Sinner - the rivalry begins

    He's not blessed. He's actually going to hell.

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    I'm not arrogant enough to say that I know I'm 100% right. But to be convinced to change my view, I'd have to play on the courts and see for myself. Unfortunately, I don't think that's likely to happen anytime soon, although I would love to visit Australia!

    Where does Kyrgios' serve rank in the Open Era?

    Interesting to point out that Opelka currently has averaged 18.5 aces/match for his career! At 6'11 and only 23 years old, he has the potential to overtake Karlovic as the greatest server of all time. We will have to see how he holds up and and he will need to improve his overall game as well...

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    I honestly don't know if I've played on Plexicushion Prestige or DecoTurf II. I've played on hundreds of different hard courts all over the US. I grew up in NJ playing on terrible courts covered in cracks and played on all varieties all over the country. I've played extensively around Los...

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    Congrats, you managed to miss the point of my previous post entirely. I know different hard courts play slightly differently and that other factors like weather play a role. It’s a bit of an anomaly that Djokovic won 9 AO and only 4 USO, but I don’t think it means much. He’s made 9 finals at...

    Emergence of a Big 3 Level Player

    That player wouldn't win any slams in any era.

    Emergence of a Big 3 Level Player

    It depends on if I like the player or not.

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    Just stop it. All hard courts play reasonably similarly when compared against clay or grass. Yes, there are differences between different compositions of hard courts, but come on, you are missing the point entirely. If you really want to differentiate between different surfaces by such a...

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    Strawman argument to lump him in with Baghdatis. No one is doing that. He is rightfully lumped in with Roddick because they were similar level players who had their peaks at about the same times.

    Hewitt is clearly ahead of Zverev, but Zverev still has a lot of time left to surpass Hewitt if he gets his act together.

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    It's not necessarily unfair to say that Hewitt was a slightly better version of David Ferrer. You don't seem to have any idea how good David Ferrer was though. At his best, he was a consistent force in the top 5 and reached as high as number 3. He regularly went deep into slams and even...

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    What's the problem exactly? That players who aren't as great don't get as much love as the greater players?

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    This is exactly right, and just about everyone I know sees him the same way. I don't buy the idea that's been tossed around that Hewitt is unfairly forgotten. He gets his due from fans and everyone knows he was a great player in his own right, but not an all time great. I think the people who...

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    It's mostly because he retired a while ago. When he was on top, he got tons of acclaim. He had a shorter time of playing great tennis than Murray which is why his acclaim didn't last as long.
